HEI, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2012 Results

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HEI, Inc.(Pink Sheets: HEII);(http://www.heii.com) today announced its financial results for the first quarter 2012, which ended on March 31, 2012.

Sales for the first quarter were $9.1 million as compared to $9.7 million for the first quarter of 2011. The Company generated net loss of ($157,000) for the first quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $185,000 for the same period in 2011. Diluted loss per share was ($0.02) for the first quarter of 2012, compared to diluted income per share of $0.02 for the first quarter of 2011.

“Our first quarter results were negatively impacted by a design contract postponed until late in 2012 by one of our customers in our Boulder operation which generated an unexpected loss for the Boulder division. In addition, the expansion underway in our Tempe facility generated some operating inefficiencies during the construction that negatively impacted Tempe’s production. The inefficiencies continued to impact April production. However, the good news is the Tempe construction is nearing completion and operations are beginning to return to pre-expansion levels. For Boulder, we are working to replace the business that was postponed,” said Chief Executive Officer, Mark B. Thomas.

“For our Victoria operation, we succeeded in securing two contracts in April that we have been working on for the past three years providing components to two government contractors in support of the Joint Tactical Radio Systems or JTRS program for the US military. This has been an area of focus for HEI in expanding the markets we serve,” further commented Thomas.
