Video Display Corporation Announces 1st Qtr. Fiscal 2014 Results

  *Revenues: $12,600,000
  *Gross Profit: $ 2,350,000
  *Net Income : ($236,000)

ATLANTA, July 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Video Display Corporation
(Nasdaq:VIDE), a leading innovative American designer, manufacturer and
distributor of specialty high end displays, today released financial results
for its fiscal 2014 first quarterended May 31, 2013.

Operating results for the first quarterly reporting period were in line, to
slightly less, than Company expectations, and less than the comparative
results of the first quarter of the previous year.Earnings results continued
to be negatively impacted by the start-up expenses of the two new display
divisions, Aydin Visual Solutions and Aydin CyberSecurity, as well as
approximately $180,000 in interest rate penalties being assessed by PNC Bank
on the Company's outstanding line of credit. Revenues, and therefore gross
margins, continued to be negatively impacted by delays in shipments on defense
contracts by our VDC Display Systems division.

Gross margins were substantially impacted, although overall net revenues
remained slightly higher than the comparable period, due to the reduction
higher margin revenues at the Company's Z-Axis Inc subsidiary and an
offsetting increase in revenues of lower margin products at our AVS (Aydin
Visual Solutions) division.

Ron Ordway, CEO, stated: "Based upon our first quarter results, although
slightly less than previously forecast, the Company still remains confident
that per share earnings for this fiscal year will be substantially greater
than the results reported for the previous fiscal year.With our current
backlog of existing orders and the potential contracts currently in the
bidding process, we believe guidance for the current year revenue should be in
the range of $55 million to $60 million resulting in earnings per share in the
range of $0.52 to $0.58 versus $49 million in revenue and negligible earnings
for the previous year."
