Ultralife Corporation Reports Third Quarter Results
Ultralife Corporation (NASDAQ: ULBI) reported operating income of $4.7 million on revenue of $53.3 million for the quarter ended September 26, 2010. For the third quarter of 2009, the company reported an operating loss of $0.4 million on revenue of $42.4 million.
Gross margin for the third quarter of 2010 was $14.9 million, or 27.9% of revenue, compared to $10.4 million, or 24.5% of revenue, for the same quarter a year ago, reflecting a favorable mix of high-margin Communications Systems revenue, including strong AMTI amplifier revenue, and Battery & Energy Products manufacturing efficiencies notably in the company’s China operations. Included in gross margin for the third quarter last year was a $1.3 million gain related to the resolution of a trade dispute.
Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2010 totaled $10.2 million compared to $10.8 million a year ago. Net income for the third quarter of 2010 was $4.5 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per share, for the same quarter in 2009.
For the nine months ended September 26, 2010, revenue was $128.8 million compared to $121.8 million for the same period a year ago. Operating income amounted to $6.0 million compared to an operating loss of $9.0 million for the first nine months of 2009. Net income was $4.8 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2010, or $0.28 per share, compared to a net loss of $10.1 million, or $0.59 per share, for the same period a year ago.“During the third quarter we generated strong incremental returns on revenue growth,” said John D. Kavazanjian, Ultralife’s president and chief executive officer. “Our focus on developing and selling higher-margin products with greater engineering content helped produce the third consecutive quarter of significant gross margin expansion. After taking into account the planned increase in product development, gross margin gains flowed through to operating income as we held firm on cost controls and realized operational efficiencies.
