  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) was $278,000 ($0.07 per diluted share), as compared to earnings of $117,000 ($0.03 per diluted share).

  • Gross margin was 37.9%, as compared to 35.0%.
  • Net income was $537,000 ($0.13 per diluted share), as compared to net income of $109,000 ($0.03 per diluted share).
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock based compensation (EBITDA, as adjusted) was $648,000 ($0.16 per diluted share), as compared to earnings of $229,000 ($0.05 per diluted share).
  • Backlog at June 30, 2017 was $14.2 million compared to $14.9 million ($0.8 million unfunded) at June 30, 2016. Backlog at December 31, 2016 was $13.0 million.

Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International Corp. commented, “Our operating results for the second quarter once again significantly improved from the comparable prior year period and reflected both an increase in revenue and the continued tight management of our operating costs.  The increase in revenue was due primarily to higher sales from our Electronics Group due to delivery schedules resulting from a strong year of bookings in 2016 that have carried over into 2017.  Delivery schedules for our Electronics Group indicate higher revenues for the second half of 2017.”

Mr. Binder added, “Our gross margin for the second quarter improved to 37.2% compared to gross margin of 33.6% from the comparable period of the prior year.  Our higher gross margin was attributable to higher revenues and product mix from our Electronics Group, which was partially offset by a lower gross margin from our Power Group. In addition to our improved gross margins, we continue to tightly manage our selling, general and administrative costs.  These costs were only slightly higher than the prior comparable period despite incurring additional selling costs in our effort to drive our bid pipeline and revenues higher.”

Mr. Binder continued, “Our backlog at June 30, 2017 was $14,183,000 compared to $13,017,000 at December 31, 2016.  However, our backlog at June 30, 2017 includes only $568,000 for a letter subcontract received by our Electronics Group from a prime contractor for a suite of our equipment on a major military aviation program, but does not include approximately $832,000 of the expected $1,400,000 related purchase order.  Had the total purchase order been placed, backlog would have been approximately $15,015,000 at June 30, 2017, an increase of approximately 15.3% compared to year end.  We expect this order to be placed no later than the end of the fourth quarter (once negotiations are completed) and deliveries to commence in the first quarter of 2018.  Furthermore, our Electronics Group continues to have a firm bid pipeline including several contracts that we expect to be received prior to the end of the year.”

Mr. Binder added, “Bookings from our Power Group remain a bit sporadic.  However, there continues to be demand for our VPX technology as we continue to receive pre-production orders for our power supplies that appear to be accelerating.  We continue to make strategic alliances with several prime contractors utilizing our technology and are hopeful that the value of orders for these VPX products will steadily increase as programs move to the production stage.  In addition, our Power Group is expecting a significant follow-on order for one of its COTS power supplies, which should be received no later than the end of the third quarter.” 

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, “Our financial condition remains strong.  At June 30, 2017, total current assets were approximately $15.3 million versus total current liabilities of approximately $1.8 million for an 8.6 to 1 current ratio. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of June 30, 2017, aggregated approximately $2.6 million. To offset future federal and state taxes resulting from profits, we have approximately $10 million and $0.7 million in available federal and New York State net operating loss carryforwards, respectively, which should enhance future cash flow.”

Mr. Goldman concluded, “Our tangible book value at June 30, 2017 was $3.54 as compared to $3.49 at March 31, 2017 and $3.42 at December 31, 2016. (Note that tangible book value does not include any additional value for the remaining reserved deferred tax asset). During the six months ended June 30, 2017, we purchased approximately 214,000 shares (approximately $848,000) of our common stock at an average price of $3.96 per share.”

Mr. Binder concluded, “Because our revenue is tied to the delivery schedules stated in our contracts, it is difficult to judge our performance on a quarterly basis.  As stated earlier, the delivery schedules for our Electronics Group indicate higher revenues for the second half of 2017.  We currently have no bank debt and we are therefore able to use our operating cash flow to repurchase our shares.  We have purchased a total of 254,845 shares of our stock since January 1, 2017 which is approximately 6.1% of our outstanding shares. In addition, we have purchased a total of 451,046 shares of our stock since January 1, 2016 (10.3% of our outstanding shares) at an average price of $3.85 per share. We are actively pursuing new and follow-on opportunities in the military marketplace and we are optimistic that the administration in Washington D.C. appears committed to increase defense spending.  As a result of our continued confidence in our business outlook, our Board of Directors has increased its authorization to repurchase our shares in the marketplace from $400,000 to $1,000,000 of which $823,000 is available for future purchases.”

EBITDA (as adjusted) as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly named measures reported by other companies.
