Nortech Systems Reports First Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: NSYS

Nortech Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: NSYS) today reported net sales of $29.0 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, an increase of 33 percent over net sales of $21.7 million for the first quarter of 2010.

Net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $626,188, or $0.23 per diluted common share, which includes a non-operating gain, net of tax, of $528,007, or $0.19 per diluted common share, from the January acquisition of certain assets associated with the EMS operations of Winland Electronics, Inc. In the first quarter of 2010, Nortech reported net income of $95,284, or $0.03 per diluted common share.

“We’re pleased to report a solid increase in quarterly revenue, both from organic growth and our recent acquisitions,” said Mike Degen, Nortech Systems’ president and CEO. Of the $7.3 million quarterly revenue increase over the first quarter of 2010, Degen noted that 75 percent, or $5.5 million, was attributed to Nortech’s acquisitions in the past year – medical device operations in Milaca, Minn., and EMS operations in Mankato, Minn.

“We targeted these acquisitions for long-term profitable growth,” Degen explained. “In the short term, however, we’re absorbing costs associated with integrating them into our company.” He added that quarterly comparative results also reflect the reinstatement of wages, benefits and incentive programs in the second half of 2010.

“Nortech’s people remain our most valuable asset,” concluded Degen. “As our recovery continues, we were gratified to reward our employees’ dedication to delivering excellence for all our customers.”
