The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT:LGL) (the “Company” or “LGL”), announced results for the full year and quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Summary of 2016 Full-Year Financial Results:

  • Revenues of $20.9 million, up 0.9% compared to 2015
  • Net income of $0.06 per share compared to a net loss of ($0.27) per share in 2015
  • Order backlog improved 19.9% to $10.5 million at December 31, 2016 from $8.8 million at December 31, 2015
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.27 per share, compared to $0.19 per share for 2015

Summary of Q4 2016 Financial Results:

  • Revenues of $5.8 million, up 14.6% compared to Q4 2015
  • Net income of $0.08 per share compared to a net loss of ($0.05) per share in Q4 2015
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.12 per share, compared to $0.05 per share for Q4 2015

Commenting on the Company’s 2016 results, Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr. stated, “All of the arrows in our statement of operations and, for the first time in several years, our balance sheet as well, are pointed north. In addition, our share price from the start of the year to the end of the year moved from $3.70 per share to $5.02 per share, an increase of 35.7%.”

Mr. Ferrantino continued, “Although I am pleased with the increase in our share price I am still not satisfied, so our work continues. Our strategy is clear and consistent. We are about growth, both as it relates to our organic strategy of introducing new market driven products, as well as our initiative to add on synergistic pieces to LGL like the purchase of Precise Time and Frequency, Inc. (“PTF”) in September. PTF added a small amount to our revenue in 2016 and incurred a small loss due to one-time costs related to moving the business over to our systems. I do expect that in Q1 2017 PTF will be accretive.”

In closing, Mr. Ferrantino added, “To our shareholders who have stood by us, thank you for your patience. All of us at LGL and our subsidiaries are doing our best to see you are properly rewarded. And to our new shareholders and potential shareholders, I believe our future is only limited by our bandwidth which continues to broaden every year.”

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP(generally accepted accounting principles) basis, the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items we believe are discrete events which have a significant impact on comparable GAAP measures and could distort an evaluation of our normal operating performance. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted earnings per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
