Giga-tronics Reports First Quarter Results SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (Nasdaq:GIGA) reported today net sales of $3.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, an increase of 9% when compared to net sales of $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in net sales is primarily due to the Micosource business units' progress on long term contracts from a large aerospace company. Net sales decreased 25% in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 when compared to $4.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in net sales is primarily due to the timing of orders associated with the Signal Generator product line. Gross margins for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $1.1 million, an increase of 17% when compared to gross margins of $960,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in gross margins is primarily due to the increase in higher margin sales from the Micosource business unit. Gross margins decreased 31% from the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to the first quarter of fiscal 2014 due to lower net sales and lower utilization of fixed factory overhead. In April 2013 the Company completed the sale of the Giga-tronics Division product line known as SCPM for $1.0 million to Teradyne Inc., and recorded a net gain on sale of $816,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. The Company received initial cash proceeds of $800,000 of from the sale in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and an additional $50,000 (less associated costs of $34,000) was earned during the first quarter. Also, the Company expects to receive an additional $150,000 later in the year after satisfaction of certain hold back requirements under the terms of the agreement. Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $681,000, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in net loss is primarily due to the gain from the SCPM product line sale to Teradyne Inc. Net loss decreased 4% from the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to the first quarter of fiscal 2014 primarily due to the SCPM product line sale to Teradyne Inc., which was mostly offset by lower net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. In July 2014 Giga-tronics completed a securities purchase agreement with Alara Capital AVI II, LLC ("Alara") that yielded gross proceeds of $858,000. Alara purchased approximately 5,112 shares of a new Class D convertible voting perpetual preferred stock at a price of $143.00 per share. Alara also acquired a warrant to purchase up to 511,186 additional shares of common stock in the future at an exercise price of $1.43 per share. In addition, an existing warrant to purchase 506,219 shares of common was cancelled, and a new warrant to acquire the same number of shares in the future at an exercise price of $1.43 per share was issued. Mr. John Regazzi, the Company's CEO stated, "I'm pleased to see the quarter to quarter growth in net sales and gross margin, due in large part to the progress we are making with Microsourse's long term aerospace contracts. Mr. Regazzi concluded, "The recent cash raised from the product line sale to Teradyne Inc. and the preferred stock to Alara allows us to continue to invest heavily in engineering associated with our new product platform, which we believe is essential for the company to achieve future top line growth and ultimately profitability."
