Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. Releases Third Quarter 2013 Results

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - August 08, 2014) - Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OPXS), a leading manufacturer of optical sighting systems and assemblies primarily for Department of Defense applications, reported operating results for the three months and nine months ended June 29, 2014.

In the three months ended June 29, 2014, revenues decreased by ($2.5) million or (56.8%) from the respective prior period in 2013. The decrease in revenue is due to lower spending by the U.S. Government across all product lines as compared to prior year levels. The gross margin during the three months ended June 29, 2014 was $0.24 million or 12.6% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $0.67 million or 15.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in gross margin percentage for the period, as compared to the prior year period, is primarily due to reserves booked for excess slow moving inventory in the current quarter. During the three months ended June 29, 2014, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.41) million as compared to net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.08) million during the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increased loss of ($0.33) million is primarily to lower revenue and the associated gross margin of ($0.43) million offset with reduced general and administrative spending of $0.12 in the current year period as compared to the prior year.

In the nine months ended June 29, 2014, revenues decreased by ($4.6) million or (38.3%) from the respective prior period in 2013. The decrease is primarily attributable to lower revenue in plastic and glass periscopes due to reduced spending by the U.S. Government below prior year levels. The gross margin during the nine months ended June 29, 2014 was $1.2 million or 16.2% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $2.0 million or 16.7% for the nine months ended June 30, 2013. The total gross margin declined due to decreased revenue and the gross margin percentage is slightly lower by 0.05% resulting from additional reserves booked for excess slow moving inventory in the current year. During the nine months ended June 29, 2014, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.55) million as compared to a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.15) million during the nine months ended June 30, 2013. The increase in net loss of ($0.40) million is primarily attributable to lower revenue and the associated gross margin of ($0.8) million offset with the reduced general and administrative spending of $0.3 million and favorable changes in deferred income taxes and interest expenses of $0.1 million in the current year period as compared to the prior year.

Backlog, as of June 29, 2014, was $9.9 million as compared to a backlog of $15.0 million as of June 30, 2013, representing a decrease of $5.1 million or 34.0%. In the nine months ending June 29, 2014, Optex Systems Holdings received $5.1 million in new orders consisting of $2.8 million in plastic periscopes, $1.6 million in M36/DDAN sighting systems and $0.7 million in other product lines.

During the nine months ended June 29, 2014, the Company has experienced a net loss and a 38% decrease in revenues as compared to the nine months ended June 30, 2013. U.S. military spending has been significantly reduced as a result of the Congressional sequestration cuts to defense spending, which began in fiscal year 2013. As a result of lower U.S. government spending, we continue to explore other opportunities for manufacturing outside of our traditional product lines for products which could be manufactured using our existing lines in order to fully utilize our existing capacity. Given the sizable reduction in backlog from 2013 levels, we do not anticipate being able to fully offset the reduced government spending with alternative business in the current fiscal year or in the next twelve months.

The Company has historically funded its operations through operations, preferred stock offerings and bank debt. The Company's ability to generate positive cash flows depends on a variety of factors, including the continued development and successful marketing of the Company's products. At December 31, 2013, the Company had approximately $909 thousand in cash and access to a $1.0 million working line of credit. The Company expects to continue to incur net losses for at least the next year. Successful transition to attaining profitable operations is dependent upon achieving a level of revenue adequate to support the Company's cost structure. 

As of June 29, 2014, we had cash and cash equivalents of $0.9 million which is consistent with the period ended September 29, 2013. Net cash provided by operating activities during the period from September 30, 2013 to June 29, 2014 totaled $0.9 million. The outstanding line of credit balance as of September 29, 2013 was $0.9 million. In the first nine months of fiscal year 2014, Optex used the cash provided by operating activities to bring the ending outstanding line of credit balance to zero as of June 29, 2014. 

Management of the Company expects to be successful in maintaining sufficient working capital and will manage operations commensurate with its level of working capital through June 30, 2015. In the event the Company does not successfully implement its ultimate business plan, certain assets may not be recoverable. 

"Optex is now experiencing the full force of reduced U.S. defense spending," said Danny Schoening, Optex CEO. "During the last quarter, while the number of requests for quotes continued to grow, the size of and number of actual solicitation awards substantially declined," he commented. "We continue to reduce expenses, adjust staffing, purchasing and all controllable expenses as we remain steadfast in our commitment to responding rapidly and providing periscopes and sighting systems that represent quality and value at a fair price." 

Merrick Okamoto, Chairman of Optex, added, "During this downtrend in U.S. defense purchasing, I am proud of our efforts to expand our international business. The Company completed delivery and installation of our M17 Day / Thermal Driving Periscope to a South American country that has spurred additional interest from other foreign defense departments."
