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."

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Security, data privacy, reliability and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house client hosted environments to a cloud platform.

The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
"Splunk basically takes machine data and we make it usable, valuable and accessible for everyone. The way that plays in DevOps is - we need to make data-driven decisions to delivering applications," explained Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk and @DevOpsSummit Conference Chair, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Robert Doyle, lead architect at eCube Systems, will examine the issues and need for an agile infrastructure and show the advantages of capturing developer knowledge in an exportable file for migration into production.

In addition to captur...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
