SAN DIEGO -- January 7, 2013
RF Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: RFIL) announced preliminary unaudited financial
results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended October 31, 2012.
For the fourth quarter ended October 31, 2012, preliminary unaudited revenues
increased $4.5 million, or 77%, to $10.5 million as compared to $6.0 million
in the same quarter of fiscal 2011. Preliminary unaudited consolidated net
income for the quarter was $1.2 million, or $0.17 per basic and $0.15 per
diluted share, compared to consolidated net loss of $50 thousand, or $0.01 net
loss per basic and diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011.
For the fiscal year ended October 31, 2012, preliminary unaudited revenues
increased 56% to $30.2 million as compared to revenues of $19.4 million in
fiscal 2011. Preliminary unaudited consolidated net income was $2.6 million or
$0.38 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share as compared to consolidated net
income of $773 thousand or $0.12 per basic and $0.11 per diluted share in the
same prior year period.
Howard Hill, RF Industries’ Chief Executive Officer, stated, “2012 was an
exceptional year for the company. It is particularly gratifying that the
strength in both the fourth quarter and 2012 stemmed from strong performance
of all divisions across our company, with each division growing and
contributing to our profitability. The new OptiFlex™ power and fiber optic
cabling system for high-speed wireless antenna towers that our Cables
Unlimited division introduced in 2012 realized particularly strong acceptance
in the marketplace. That division’s revenue grew to $4.9 million, an increase
of 183% for the quarter compared to the fourth quarter of last year.
Furthermore, the RadioMobile division of our RF Wireless segment benefited in
the quarter from additional shipments associated with a $2.6 million order to
the L.A. County Fire Department. Our balance sheet provides a firm foundation
for future growth, and we are particularly encouraged by the first two months
of Q1 2013 which point to strong growth and profitability for the quarter.”
The Company expects to report fully audited results for fiscal 2012 no later
than the week of January 29, 2013.
