Ultralife Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter Results

Ultralife Corporation (NASDAQ: ULBI) reported operating income of $1.9 million, excluding a previously disclosed $13.8 million non-cash asset impairment charge, on revenue of $49.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. For the fourth quarter of 2009, the company reported operating income of $1.6 million on revenue of $50.4 million.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $12.5 million, or 25.2% of revenue, compared to $11.9 million, or 23.7% of revenue, for the same quarter a year ago, reflecting a favorable mix of high-margin products and improved manufacturing efficiencies.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled $24.4 million compared to $10.3 million a year ago. Included in operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 was a $13.8 million non-cash asset impairment charge and certain one-time expenses. As a result, the company reported a net loss of $11.0 million, or $0.64 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to net income of $0.8 million, or $0.05 per share, for the same quarter in 2009.

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 revenue was $178.6 million, compared to $172.1 million for the same period a year ago. The operating loss for fiscal year 2010 was $5.9 million, including the above-mentioned asset impairment charge, compared to an operating loss of $7.4 million for fiscal year 2009. Net loss was $6.2 million for fiscal year 2010, or $0.36 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.2 million, or $0.54 per share, for the same period a year ago.

“Ultralife’s fourth quarter results build on the third quarter’s strong performance and cap a year of across-the-board operational and margin improvements, which resulted in a much stronger balance sheet,” said Michael D. Popielec, Ultralife’s president and chief executive officer.

“Revenue for the quarter illustrates the benefits of our diversified mix of military and commercial, domestic and international businesses,” added Popielec. “Benchmarked against last year, revenue for this year’s fourth quarter masks a 37% gain in Battery & Energy Products revenue, which was driven by sales increases across our portfolio of rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries and occurred even without shipments for standard batteries to the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency. In Communications Systems, continued increasing demand for our amplifiers and chargers among allied militaries was more than offset by lower levels of shipments of SATCOM compared to last year’s fourth quarter. Finally, Energy Services revenue benefited from increased wireless tower business.
