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.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
