PHAZAR CORP Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

PHAZAR CORP (NASDAQ: ANTP) designs, manufactures and markets antennas, towers, support structures, masts and communication accessories worldwide. Today, PHAZAR CORP announces the unaudited results of operations for the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2012.

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013

PHAZAR CORP’s consolidated sales from operations were $1,495,130 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to sales of $2,092,367 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The Company’s decline in revenues of $597,237, or -29%, is attributed to a $1,116,454 non-recurring antenna shipment to EID-Portugal in the second quarter in fiscal year 2012 offset by an upturn in shipboard and safety climb product lines during the second quarter in fiscal year 2013.

Cost of sales and contracts from operations were $931,556 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $1,273,062 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, down $341,506, or -27%. Gross profit margin for the quarter, at 38% is down one basis point from the 39% gross profit margin reported in the comparable period last year.

Selling, general and administration expenses were up 193% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, to $2,109,890 from $719,588 in the prior year, reflecting a $1,516,338 charge for an impairment on the Tracciare, Inc. note receivable offset by a $126,036 decline in recurring expenses quarter over quarter. The decline in selling, general and administration expense is related to an increase in plant utilization overhead charged to cost of goods sold. Discretionary product development spending for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $184,876, or 12% of sales, compared to $127,398, or 6% of sales for the comparable period last year.

During the second quarter of the year ended December 31, 2012, PHAZAR CORP reported large operating losses and projected cash flow shortfalls in the near future. Based on those facts, it is unlikely the remaining net deferred tax assets will be realized. Therefore, an additional valuation allowance of $513,430 has been recorded as a deferred tax expense.

The Company recorded a net loss of $2,234,115, or $(0.96) per share for the three month period ended December 31, 2012 compared to net income of $4,471 or $0.00 per share for the comparable period in the prior year.

Six Month Period Ending December 31, 2012

Consolidated sales from operations for PHAZAR CORP were $2,654,966 for the six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $3,507,585 for the six months ended December 31, 2011. The Company’s sales decreased by $852,619, or 24% attributable to a $1,116,440 non-recurring shipment in fiscal year 2012 to EID-Portugal offset by an upturn in our shipboard antenna product line.

Costs of sales and contracts from operations were $2,250,962 for the six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $2,052,381 for the six months ended December 3, 2011, up $198,581, or 10% due to the $600,000 slow moving inventory reserve recorded in the first quarter offset by the decline revenues for the first two quarters of fiscal year 2013. The gross profit margin for the six month period ended December 31, 2012, at 15% was down twenty six basis points compared to the gross profit margin of 41% for the same period in the prior year. The significant decline in gross profit margin is largely attributed to the $600,000 reserve for slow moving inventory that was recorded in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Selling, general and administration expenses of $2,647,886 are up $1,182,928, or 81% for the six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $1,464,958 for the six month period ended December 31, 2011. The increase in sales and administration expense reflects a $1,516,338 impairment charge on the Tracciare, Inc. note receivable offset by a $333,410 decline related to an increase in plant utilization overhead charged to cost of goods sold for the six month period ended December 31, 2012. Discretionary product development spending for the six month period ended December 31, 2012 was $358,972, or 14% of sales, compared to $226,860, or 7% of sales for the comparable period last year. Year over year there is an increase of $132,112 in discretionary product development spending. The increase represents continued product development for the commercial wireless product line.

During the second quarter of the year ended December 31, 2012, PHAZAR CORP reported large operating losses and projected cash flow shortfalls in the near future. Based on those facts, it is unlikely the remaining net deferred tax assets will be realized. Therefore, an additional valuation allowance of $513,430 has been recorded as a deferred tax expense.

The Company recorded a net loss of $3,019,487, or $(1.30) per share for the six month period ended December 31, 2012 compared to a net loss of $115,784, or $(0.05) per share for the comparable period in the prior year.

Backlog of Orders

The Company’s backlog of orders on December 31, 2012, totaled $2,473,662, up 71% compared to backlog of $1,442,802 at December 31, 2011 and up 66% from June 30, 2012. Incoming orders for the six month period ended December 31, 2012 totaled $3,657,481 versus $2,693,051 for the six month period ended December 31, 2011, an increase of 36% year over year.

This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.
