  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) was a loss of $854,000 ($0.19 loss per share), as compared to earnings of $548,000 ($0.12 per diluted share).
  • Backlog at September 30, 2014 was $9.8 million as compared to $8.2 million at June 30, 2014 and $12.7 million at September 30, 2013.

Mitchell Binder, President & Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Once again, during our third quarter, we continued our efforts to restructure our business to significantly reduce our costs in order to offset difficult industry conditions. In addition, last month we announced our intention to voluntarily delist our common shares from the Nasdaq Capital Market and to subsequently deregister our common stock under the Exchange Act of 1934. Our stock is currently quoted on the OTC Pink Sheets, a centralized electronic quoting service for over-the-counter securities. We believe the delisting and deregistration will further reduce administrative expenses and enable management to focus more of its time on business performance."

Mr. Binder added, "Our third quarter results, as expected, were adversely affected by lower sales at our Electronics Group. However, due to the significant cost cutting measures that we have taken over the past several quarters, we were able to record only a small net loss despite the lower net sales. As we have previously mentioned, these cost savings for 2014 will still be partially offset by lower revenues due to challenging industry conditions and more specifically, the delay in the award of certain legacy contracts that will not have delivery schedules until 2015. However, as previously announced, our third quarter bookings exceeded $6,000,000 and we believe these strong bookings will continue into the fourth quarter as more purchase orders on legacy programs are received. We believe these improved bookings will improve our delivery schedules for 2015 and we are hopeful that we can then take advantage of the operating leverage inherent in our business."

Mr. Binder continued, "Our operating performance for the third quarter of 2014 once again benefitted from the performance of our Power Group, which was insufficient to offset the results from our Electronics Group which was adversely affected by lower sales. However, the Electronics Group has seen a considerable improvement in bookings since the first half of the year."

Mr. Binder added, "Our backlog at September 30, 2014 was $9.8 million as compared to $8.2 million at June 30, 2014 due principally to higher backlogs at both our Electronics and Power Groups. Our third quarter was our strongest booking quarter of the year and we still are expecting awards on certain legacy contracts before year end. We remain encouraged by our recent contract awards as well as our bid and proposal pipeline. However, timing of future legacy awards is always subject to uncertainty." 

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, "Our financial condition remains strong. At September 30, 2014, total current assets were approximately $16.5 million versus total current liabilities of approximately $3.6 million for a 4.6 to 1 current ratio. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2014, aggregated approximately $2.8 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 September 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 September 30, 2014 was $3.04 as compared to $3.07 at June 30, 2014 and $3.32 per share at December 31, 2013 (this does not include any value for the potential deferred tax asset from our operating loss carryforwards that could offset future taxable income)."

Mr. Binder concluded, "Although to date our VPX technology contracts awards have been small, we remain encouraged that these new 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 - We are confident that we will become the vendor of choice for many of the potential prime contractors in this arena; however, the timing of awards, particularly in this environment, remains uncertain. Finally, we remain very cautious of challenging business conditions in our marketplace and are continuing 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.
