Company Returns to Profitability, Exclusive of Facility Consolidation Costs

HAUPPAUGE, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ: ORBT) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 vs. Second Quarter 2013

  • Net sales were $5,396,000, as compared to $6,475,000.
  • Gross margin was 41.5%, as compared to 38.6%.
  • Net loss was $171,000 ($0.04 loss per share), as compared to net income of $109,000 ($0.02 per diluted share).
  • Net loss for the second quarter of 2014 includes $351,000 of costs associated with the completion of our consolidation of our Quakertown, PA facility into our Hauppauge, NY facility. Exclusive of these costs, net income for the second quarter was $180,000 ($0.04 per diluted share). As of June 30, 2014, substantially all consolidation related costs have been incurred.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) was a loss of $62,000 ($0.01 loss per share), as compared to earnings of $244,000 ($0.05 per diluted share).

First Half 2014 vs. First Half 2013

  • Net sales were $10,403,000, as compared to $12,922,000.
  • Gross margin was 35.9%, as compared to 38.6%.
  • Net loss was $1,233,000 ($0.28 loss per share), as compared to net income of $29,000 ($0.01 per diluted share).
  • Net loss for the first half of 2014 includes $1,079,000 of costs associated with the consolidation of our Quakertown, PA facility into our Hauppauge, NY facility. Exclusive of these costs, net loss for the first half of 2014 was $154,000 ($0.04 loss per share).
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) was a loss of $823,000 ($0.19 loss per share), as compared to earnings of $303,000 ($0.07 per diluted share).

Mitchell Binder, President & Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our second quarter was a continuation of our efforts to restructure our business to significantly reduce our costs in order to offset difficult industry conditions. For the second quarter, our net income and EBITDA, as adjusted, improved year-over-year, exclusive of the costs associated with the completion of our consolidation of our Quakertown operations into our Hauppauge facility."

Mr. Binder added, "Despite a reduction in sales for the quarter, we recorded gross margin improvement resulting from these cost cutting initiatives and product mix. With the completion of the consolidation of Quakertown into Hauppauge, we should further benefit from the cost savings in the second half of 2014. However, these cost savings will be partially offset by lower revenues due to challenging industry conditions and more specifically, the delay in the award of certain legacy contracts, particularly for our Electronics Group, that will not have delivery schedules until 2015."

Mr. Binder continued, "Our operating performance for the second quarter of 2014 benefitted from the improved performance of our Power Group, which was insufficient to offset the results from our Electronics Group which included the costs associated with the completion of the consolidation of our Quakertown, PA facility into our Hauppauge, NY facility. For each of the third and the fourth quarters of 2014, we expect the results from our Power Group to be comparable to the second quarter but as mentioned earlier, we expect continued weakness from our Electronics Group."

Mr. Binder added, "Our backlog at June 30, 2014 was $8.2 million as compared to $9.6 million at March 31, 2014 due principally to a lower backlog at our Electronics Group. Our June 30, 2014 backlog for our Power Group was comparable to the backlog at March 31, 2014. However, the Company has received some significant contracts during the current third quarter and our bid and proposal pipeline continues to grow, particularly for our legacy business."

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, "Our financial condition remains strong. At June 30, 2014, total current assets were approximately $16.7 million versus total current liabilities of approximately $1.8 million for a 9.3 to 1 current ratio. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of June 30, 2014, aggregated approximately $2.9 million. To offset future federal and state taxes resulting from profits, we have approximately $8 million and $7 million in available federal and state net operating loss carryforwards, respectively, which should enhance future cash flow. We were in compliance with our financial covenants at June 30, 2014."

Mr. Goldman added, "During the quarter, we continued to pay down our debt. In addition, since January 1, 2012, we have repurchased in excess of 368,000 shares of our stock in the marketplace at an average price of $3.55 per share. Our tangible book value at June 30, 2014 was $3.07 as compared to $3.09 at March 31, 2014 and $3.32 per share at December 31, 2013."

Mr. Binder concluded, "We remain encouraged that our new VPX technologies will layer onto our existing business in our marketplace. Our industry-leading VPXtra power supplies, GUI driven health monitors as well as backplanes and related items can be found on our recently launched web portal -- vmevpx.com. However, the timing of awards, particularly in this environment, remains uncertain. We remain very cautious of challenging business conditions and continue to reduce costs wherever possible in order to improve our operating margins."

(1) The EBITDA (as adjusted) tables presented are not determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Management uses EBITDA (as adjusted) to evaluate the operating performance of its business. It is also used, at times, by some investors, securities analysts and others to evaluate companies and make informed business decisions. EBITDA (as adjusted) is also a useful indicator of the income generated to service debt. EBITDA (as adjusted) is not a complete measure of an entity's profitability because it does not include costs and expenses for interest, depreciation and amortization, income taxes and stock based compensation. EBITDA (as adjusted) as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly named measures reported by other companies.
