Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. Releases 2013 Results

Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. Releases 2013 Results 
RICHARDSON, TX  -- (Marketwired) -- 12/19/13 --  Optex Systems
Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OPXS), a leading manufacturer of optical
sighting systems and assemblies primarily for Department of Defense
applications, reported operating results for the year ended September
29, 2013. 
Revenues for the year ended September 29, 2013 were $17.1 million as
compared to revenues during the same period one year ago of $14.3
million, an increase $2.8 million or 19.6%. The increased revenue is
primarily due to the production ramp up of the $8 million M36 Digital
Day Night sighting system program awarded in fiscal year 2012,
increased plastic periscope business related to customer base
expansion due to the closure of our primary periscope competitor, and
deliveries against a new gunner head assembly program to the U.S.
Government in 2013. These increases were partially offset by a
decrease in Howitzer programs resulting from completion of the
contract in fiscal year 2012. The gross margin during the year ended
September 29, 2013 was $3.2 million or 18.7% of revenues as compared
to a gross margin of $2.4 million or 16.8% for the year ended
September 30, 2012. The increase in gross margin percentage for the
year as compared to the prior year is primarily due the $2.8 million
increase in revenue, combined with a shift in product mix toward more
profitable programs, primarily in the last fiscal quarter of 2013.
During the period ended September 29, 2013, we recorded a net income
of $0.14 million, as compared to a net loss of ($0.26) million for
the period September 30, 2012. The change in net income of $0.40
million is primarily attributable to higher operating profit of $0.56
million offset by changes in the accrued dividends on preferred stock
of $(0.11) million due to the waiver in February 2012, increased
deferred taxes of $(0.03) million and increased interest expense of
$(0.02) million. Backlog as of September 29, 2013 was $12.3 million
as compared to a backlog of $19.0 million as of September 30, 2012,
representing decrease of 35.2%. During 2013, Optex Systems Holdings
received orders totaling $10.3 million consisting of $8.8 million
from several customers primarily in support of our periscope product
line, $0.8 million in Sighting Systems, and $0.7 million in the other
product group.  
As of September 29, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents of $0.9
million as compared to $1.7 million on September 30, 2012. We
decreased cash and cash equivalents by $(0.8) million primarily due
to increased accounts receivable related to timing of collections of
$(1.3) million, and increased inventory in support of the M36 Day
Night program of $(0.6) million offset by borrowing against the
outstanding line of credit of $0.9 million and net income of $0.1
Danny Schoening, Company CEO, summarized: "As the year ending
September 30, 2013 began, we received an increase in product orders,
most with short delivery dates and for larger than expected
quantities; an early indication of the uncertainty caused by the
implementation of the Budget Control Act of 2011 known as
'sequestration.' This early rush of orders contributed to higher
Company performance and increase in EBITDA however, as the year
progressed and the reduced spending limits were enacted, the Company
began to experience fewer long-term solicitation requests as well as
reduced product quantities. We believed that this would be an
indication of the on-going impact of the Budget Control Act until
earlier this week when Congress reached a budget compromise and
reinstated $45 billion in defense spending cuts back into the FY 2014
Federal Budget. The results of this change in defense spending are
unknown but we are positioned to take advantage of every opportunity
presented to the Company and expect to understand the full impact of
the restored funding by mid-2014." 
He continued: "I am also pleased with the development of our products
designed for fleet modernization and upgrades; the recognition of our
advances in this product line was recently recognized by the issuance
on Optex's first patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office."
