Dépèche transmise le 8 novembre 2011 par Business Wire

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ:ORBT) today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Third Quarter 2011 vs. Third Quarter 2010

  • Net sales increased by 7.5% to $7,850,000 compared to $7,299,000;
  • Gross margin increased to 43.1% compared to 38.6%;
  • Net income increased 36.9% to $697,000 compared to $509,000;
  • Earnings per diluted share was $.15 compared to $.11 per diluted share; and,
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) increased 22.9% to $876,000 ($.19 per diluted share) compared to $713,000 ($.16 per diluted share).

Nine Months 2011 vs. Nine Months 2010

  • Net sales increased by 15.9% to $22,946,000 from $19,803,000;
  • Gross margin increased to 42.0% compared to 36.4%;
  • Net income increased to $2,138,000 or $.46 per diluted share compared to $3,000 or $.00 per share;
  • EBITDA, as adjusted increased 266% to $2,683,000 ($.57 per diluted share) compared to $733,000 ($.16 per diluted share); and,
  • Backlog at September 30, 2011 was $15.8 million compared to $20.1 million at September 30, 2010.

Commenting on third quarter results, Mitchell Binder, President & Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Continuing the positive trends of the first half, our operating performance for the third quarter was very strong. The 7.5% increase in net sales resulted in a nearly 37% increase in net income due to a significant increase in gross margin reflecting good operating leverage, particularly at our Power Group and Orbit Instrument Division. The improvement in profitability was achieved despite the increase in third quarter selling, general and administrative expenses both in dollars and as a percent of net sales compared to prior quarters of 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased due to higher corporate costs and certain labor inefficiencies related to downsizing the ICS operation during the quarter.”

He continued, “Gross margin in the third quarter increased to approximately 43%, returning to the first quarter 2011 level and was 42% through the first nine months of the year. Thus, net sales for the first nine months of 2011 increased by 16% and our net income improved by $2,135,000 as compared to the same period of last year.”

Mr. Binder added, “Our September 30, 2011 backlog of $15.8 million was 21% lower than at September 30, 2010. An MK-119 order for ICS, valued at $2.4 million, had been included in last year’s backlog, but a new MK-119 order is not expected to be awarded until late 2012 for foreign military sales. Our backlog as of October 31, 2011 increased to $16.7 million and the Orbit Instrument Division anticipates several significant orders for RCUs under the Common Transponder Program and FAA orders for keyboards in the current fourth quarter.”

Mr. Binder added, “Overall, the outlook for the final quarter is good. We expect strong shipments from our Power Group and Orbit Instrument Division but less than expected sales from our TDL and ICS units, which is consistent with our operating performance to date. ICS has taken several cost cutting initiatives which should lower its operating costs. As previously reported, we expect fourth quarter earnings to equal or exceed that of our 2011 first quarter when we earned $.11 per diluted share. Assuming the timely receipt of orders by our Orbit Instrument Division, we expect our strong operating performance to continue in 2012.”

Mr. Binder concluded, “We continue to focus on growing the business on two fronts. We are pursuing organic growth from a number of opportunities that have moved from the prototype and pre-production stages into initial production, and also from new opportunities for repair and modernization of equipment as military activities in the Middle East are curtailed. Our search for strategic accretive acquisitions continues, with our primary focus on expanding our Power Group.”

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, “Our financial condition remains strong. At September 30, 2011, total current assets were $19,904,000 versus total current liabilities of $3,879,000 for a 5.1 to 1 current ratio. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2011 was over $2.1 million. Our inventories at September 30, 2011 have declined to $12.6 million from $13.2 million at mid-year, and we are geared up for continued high shipment levels in the fourth quarter based on customer delivery schedules. To offset profits from federal and state taxes, we have approximately $17 million and $8 million in available federal and state net operating loss carryforwards, respectively, which should enhance future cash flow. Our tangible book value at September 30, 2011 was $3.54 per share, as compared to $3.39 per share on June 30, 2011, and $3.07 per share at December 31, 2010. The Company was in compliance with its financial covenants as of September 30, 2011 and our primary lender has extended the expiration date of our line until the second quarter of 2012. We had no borrowings under the line of credit as of September 30, 2011.”
