Orbit International’s Power Group Receives Two New Orders with a Combined Value in Excess of $626,000, Bringing Bookings for December to over $2,200,000

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ:ORBT) today announced that its Power Group, through its Behlman Electronics, Inc. subsidiary (“Behlman”), has received two new orders totaling in excess of $626,000.

“Our Power Group capped off an extremely successful year in 2011 with an exceptional finish. In addition to bookings in excess of $2,200,000 for the month of December, bookings for the fourth quarter exceeded $5,300,000, and for 2011 as a whole increased by 35% over the prior year.”

The first award, valued at $394,000, is a follow-on order for a COTS power supply used on the RC-135, a U.S. Air Force (USAF) all-weather airborne reconnaissance aircraft. Behlman expects to receive additional orders for these units as the USAF continues to upgrade its RC-135 fleet. Delivery is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2012 and be completed by the fourth quarter of 2012.

The second order, valued at $232,000, is for a hot swappable DC power supply used in a nuclear power plant control system. Delivery of this order is scheduled for the second quarter of 2012. Behlman received the initial prototype order for these units in September 2007, has been receiving production orders since January 2008 and is projecting future orders over the next several years as nuclear power plants undergo upgrades.

In addition, Behlman announced that in 2011 it achieved record bookings, revenues and backlog.

Mark Tublisky, President of Behlman commented, “Our commitment to being a premier power solutions provider has helped to fuel our continued growth in sales leading to this record year. Behlman’s business plan, which emphasizes a platform design concept that minimizes costs and reduces delivery time combined with building strong business relationships with our customers, has made 2011 the best year in Behlman’s history.”

Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International commented, “Our Power Group capped off an extremely successful year in 2011 with an exceptional finish. In addition to bookings in excess of $2,200,000 for the month of December, bookings for the fourth quarter exceeded $5,300,000, and for 2011 as a whole increased by 35% over the prior year.”

Binder continued, “In addition to record bookings, revenues also hit a record level in 2011 and with the operating leverage inherent in our business, we expect strong profitability from our Power Group for the fourth quarter and twelve month period. Going into the new year with a record backlog, Behlman is once again well positioned for strong operating performance in 2012.”
