Dynasil Corporation of America Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

  Dynasil Corporation of America Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial

Company Sells Instruments Businesses and Returns to Profitability

PR Newswire

WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 12, 2014

WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America
(NASDAQ: DYSL), a developer and manufacturer of optical detection and analysis
technology and components for the homeland security, medical and industrial
markets, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2014 first quarter
ended December 31, 2013. 

Dynasil reported net income for the quarter of $1,458,000 or $0.10 per share,
compared with a net loss of ($379,000), or ($0.03) per share, for the quarter
ended December 31, 2012.  Net income for the quarter includes a gain of
$1,187,000 associated with the sale of the Company's lead paint and medical
products businesses. 

"I am very happy to report that this quarter's results mark a return to
profitability, a substantial reduction in our senior debt and compliance with
our bank covenant ratios and the Nasdaq listing requirements," said Dynasil
Chairman and Interim CEO Peter Sulick.  "In addition, we successfully
completed the sale of our LPX and Navigator product lines and the contribution
of our tissue sealant technology to Xcede Technologies, Inc., a joint venture
with Mayo Clinic.  We expect Xcede to independently raise future funding for
the continuing development of this promising technology."

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 increased slightly to $10.7
million, compared with $10.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. 
Revenue increased approximately $900,000 or 19% in the Contract Research
segment in the quarter while the Instruments segment declined approximately
$500,000 or 40% primarily as a result of the sale of the lead paint and
medical products businesses.  Gross profit for the first quarter of 2014
declined slightly to $4.5 million from $4.6 million for the same period in
2013.  Gross margins decreased to 41.5% in the quarter compared to 43.8% for
the first quarter of fiscal 2013. 

Operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2013 were $4.0
million, a decrease of $883,000 compared to the same period in 2013.  The
decrease was primarily a result of reduced product development costs
associated with the lead paint and medical products businesses which were sold
during the quarter ended December 31, 2013.

The Company is in compliance with the debt covenants ratios included in its
senior loan agreement for the three months ended December 31, 2013, but has
not yet paid interest due to its subordinated lender or obtained waivers from
both its lenders for its covenant violations for prior periods, and thus
remains in default with both of its lenders.  The Company has made all
principal and interest payments due to its senior lender through February 12,
2014, the date of this earnings release, and has accrued but has not paid
approximately $400,000 due to its subordinated lender since February, 2013.
  Management has initiated discussions with its lenders in order to address
the default situation.  However, the Company cannot predict when or whether a
resolution of this situation will be achieved.

Quarterly Business Highlights

The Company successfully completed three transactions within the first quarter
of fiscal 2014 that were important steps in significantly reducing its debt
with Santander Bank and returning the Company to profitability.  On October 1,
2013, Dynasil Biomedical formed Xcede, a joint venture with the Mayo Clinic,
to spin out and separately fund the development of its tissue sealant
technology.  Xcede has initiated financing efforts and has received funding
from outside investors including certain directors of the Company.  On
November 7, 2013, the Company sold its lead paint detector business to Protec
Instrument Corporation, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Laboratoires
Protec S.A., a French corporation and former European distributor of the lead
paint detector products; and on December 23, 2013, Dynasil sold its Gamma
Medical Probe business to Dilon Technologies, Inc.   Approximately $3.9
million of the proceeds from the sales were used to reduce the Company's bank

"Now that we have been successful in reducing our debt and returning to
profitability, the Company can continue to pursue various commercialization
opportunities arising from technologies developed within our Contract Research
segment," stated Mr. Sulick.  "We are continuing our efforts to further
improve the size and quality of our CLYC crystals and have other exciting new
technologies in development."  

The Company has no conference calls scheduled at this time.
