PHAZAR CORP Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results Business Wire MINERAL WELLS, Texas -- April 22, 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 nine month periods ended March 31, 2013. Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 PHAZAR CORP’s consolidated sales from operations were $1,643,108 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 compared to sales of $1,485,107 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. The Company’s increase in revenues of $158,001, or 11%, is attributed to a 12% increase in the commercial wireless product line for the comparative quarters. Cost of sales and contracts from operations were $956,228 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared to $651,211 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, up $305,017, or 47% attributable to higher level of sales and an increase in plant utilization overhead charged to cost of goods sold. Gross profit margin for the quarter, at 42% is down fourteen basis points from the 56% gross profit margin reported in the comparable period last year. Selling, general and administration expenses were down 41% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, to $659,296 from $1,113,677 in the prior year, reflecting an increase in plant utilization overhead charged to cost of goods sold, lower level of wages and stock compensation expense partially offset by higher level of legal and professional costs for the comparative quarters. Discretionary product development spending for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $172,553, or 11% of sales, compared to $171,075, or 12% of sales for the comparable period last year. The Company recorded a net loss of $168,196, or $(0.07) per share for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to a net loss of $286,471 or $(0.12) per share for the comparable period in the prior year. Nine Month Period Ending March 31, 2013 Consolidated sales from operations for PHAZAR CORP were $4,298,074 for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $4,992,692 for the nine months ended March 31, 2012. The Company’s sales fell by $694,618, or 14% attributable to a $1,116,454 non-recurring antenna shipment to EID-Portugal in fiscal year 2012 partially offset by an upturn in commercial wireless, shipboard and safety climb product lines during fiscal year 2013. Costs of sales and contracts from operations were $3,207,190 for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $2,703,592 for the nine months ended March 3, 2012, up $503,598, or 19%. The increase is attributed to the $600,000 slow moving inventory reserve recorded in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 and an increase in plant utilization overhead offset by a decline in revenues over the nine month period. The gross profit margin for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013, at 25% was down twenty one basis points compared to the gross profit margin of 46% for the same period in the prior year. Selling, general and administration expenses of $1,790,844 are down $787,791, or 31% for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $2,578,635 for the nine month period ended March 31, 2012. The $787,791 decline related to an increase in plant utilization overhead charged to cost of goods sold, along with a lower level of wages and stock compensation expense partially offset by an increase in legal and professional fees for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same nine month period in prior year. The impairment of note receivable reflects a $1,547,513 impairment charge on the Tracciare, Inc. note receivable. Discretionary product development spending for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013 was $531,525, or 12% of sales, compared to $397,935, or 8% of sales for the comparable period last year. Year over year there is an increase of $133,590 in discretionary product development spending. The increase represents continued product development for the commercial wireless product line. The Company recorded a net loss of $3,187,683, or $(1.37) per share for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to a net loss of $402,255, or $(0.17) per share for the comparable period in the prior year. Backlog of Orders The Company’s backlog of orders on March 31, 2013, totaled $2,223,663, up 53% compared to backlog of $1,449,250 at March 31, 2012 and up 49% from June 30, 2012. Incoming orders for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013 totaled $5,047,991 versus $4,190,148 for the nine month period ended March 31, 2012, an increase of 20% year over year. Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents of $683,499 at March 31, 2013 are up $154,623, or 29% compared to a balance of $528,876 as of June 30, 2012. The primary components of the increase in cash at the end of the period consists of $500,000 of cash provided from the funding of a promissory note from QAR Industries, Inc. offset by $272,025 of cash used in operating activities, consisting of a $277,739 increase in inventories (net of slow moving reserve) associated with work in process jobs scheduled to ship later in the fiscal year and a $138,489 decrease in accounts payable. Financing Activities There was $500,000 of financing activities from the funding of the promissory note from QAR Industries, Inc. during the nine month periods ended March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2013 and 2012, PHAZAR CORP had no long-term debt outstanding. Expected Going Private Transaction and Capital Liquidity The Company has entered into an agreement by which it will go private no later than July 31, 2013, provided it receives shareholder approval. The Company currently anticipates that it has adequate operating capital through the close of the transaction. Should the Company experience unexpected operational difficulties or delays in the transaction closing or if the transaction is not consummated for any reason, the Company will most likely need additional capital, including capital to repay the $500,000 loan received from QAR Industries, Inc. which carries a maturity date of July 31, 2013. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to procure additional capital and if it is successful, it is likely that such capital will be highly dilutive to current shareholders. More information and analysis of PHAZAR CORP’s financial results will be provided in the management discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations in the Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended March 31, 2013, estimated to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about April 22, 2013.
