Stocks in this article: CMTL

June 7, 2012 --Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) today reported its operating results for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2012.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 were $99.8 million compared to $131.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The period-over-period decrease in net sales is due to lower sales in both the Company’s telecommunications transmission and mobile data communications segments, partially offset by higher sales in the Company’s RF microwave amplifiers segment. GAAP net income was $6.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $14.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Net sales for the nine months ended April 30, 2012 were $312.3 million compared to $472.1 million for the nine months ended April 30, 2011. GAAP net income was $24.5 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the nine months ended April 30, 2012 compared to $56.0 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, for the nine months ended April 30, 2011.

The Company also announced that it is tightening its fiscal 2012 revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance and increasing its diluted earnings per share guidance. The Company now expects its fiscal 2012: (i) revenue to range from $420.0 million to $425.0 million, (ii) Adjusted EBITDA to range from $73.0 million to $76.0 million and (iii) diluted earnings per share to range from $1.40 to $1.48. The updated diluted earnings per share guidance reflects the impact of the Company’s repurchases of its common stock through June 6, 2012.

In commenting on the Company’s performance and business outlook, Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Although market conditions remain challenging, we posted solid results in the third quarter. During the quarter, we achieved our highest level of quarterly bookings in fiscal 2012 and continue to focus on our long-term growth plans.”
