PHAZAR CORP, (NASDAQ: ANTP) designs, manufactures and markets antennas, towers, support structures, masts and communication accessories worldwide. Today, PHAZAR CORP announces the unaudited results of operations for the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2011.
Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2012
Revenues for the quarter were $2,092,367 down $66,460, or 3% from $2,158,827 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. The sales declines are largely attributable to the same factors that impacted first fiscal quarter, significantly lower FAA related sales and lower commercial sales as wireless antenna projects continued to be delayed because of the now canceled ATT-T Mobile combination. The gross profit margin for the quarter, at 39% is down 3 basis points from the 42% gross margin reported in the comparable period last year.
Sales and administrative expenses were up 29% to $719,588 from $555,949 in the prior year, reflecting a higher level of marketing wages and commission expense. Research and development costs of $127,398 were also up $112,422 from $14,976 last year primarily due to engineering costs on new antenna designs.
The Company recognized net income of $4,471, or $0.00 per share for the second quarter, compared to a net income of $23,682, or $0.01 per share, in last year’s fiscal second quarter.
