Ultralife Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

Ultralife Corporation (NASDAQ: ULBI) reported operating income from continuing operations of $2.9 million on revenue of $43.6 million for the quarter ended July 3, 2011. For the second quarter of 2010, the company reported operating income from continuing operations of $1.0 million on revenue of $33.6 million.

“Revenue for our second quarter increased by 29% over last year. The growth was driven by solid demand from our defense customers, including resumed order activity from our core U.S. government customer, and further penetration of our batteries into the metering business in China,” said Michael D. Popielec, Ultralife’s president and chief executive officer. “We are continuing to make progress towards improving the company’s profitability through lean manufacturing, reductions in non-value-added overhead and the implementation of plans to further consolidate our facilities footprint. These operational efficiencies are unlocking resources that we are allocating to new product development and expanded sales coverage. Having exited the Energy Services business one quarter ahead of schedule, we are now channeling all of our attention on positioning the company for sustainable, profitable growth.”

“As a result of our financial performance, working capital management and cash generated from lean initiatives, we reduced our revolver balance by $6.5 million during the second quarter to $3.7 million at quarter end. Working capital efficiencies included the reduction in inventory levels and improved accounts receivable collections,” added Philip A. Fain, Ultralife’s chief financial officer.
