The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE Amex: LGL) (the “Company”), announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
Total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012, were approximately $7,307,000, a decrease of 24.1% compared to revenues of $9,629,000 for the comparable period in 2011. The Company reported a net loss of ($314,000), or diluted loss per share of ($0.12), for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared with net income of $91,000, or earnings per share of $0.03, for the same period in 2011.
Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, were approximately $22,063,000, a decrease of 22.0% compared to revenues of $28,295,000 for the comparable period in 2011. The Company reported a net loss of ($1,122,000), or diluted loss per share of ($0.43), for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared with net income of $678,000, or earnings per share of $0.26, for the same period in 2011.
The decrease in revenues for first nine months of 2012 was primarily due to reduced demand from existing customers for existing products in our Internet Communications Technology (“ICT”), and Military, Aeronautics and Instrumentation (“Mil/Aero”) market segments, which was driven by continuing delays in ICT infrastructure spending and the effects of uncertainty related to government budget and spending cycles.Greg Anderson, LGL’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The prevailing macroeconomic weakness continues to impact our results, but our position with our major OEM customers remains strong. We have continued to improve our cost structure which expands the operating leverage that our business will have once the business cycle turns. Our balance sheet remains strong, enabling us to weather the cycle and pursue growth opportunities.” The decrease in net income was a direct result of the decrease in revenues, which also reduced gross margin to 24.5% for the first nine months of 2012, compared to 30.8% for the same period in 2011, which was the result of spreading fixed infrastructure costs over a smaller revenue base. The decrease in net income was offset by a reduction in administrative expenses and public company costs of approximately $691,000, or 9.1%, for the first nine months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011.
