PHAZAR CORP Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

  PHAZAR CORP Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Business Wire

MINERAL WELLS, Texas -- February 11, 2013

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.
