PHAZAR CORP Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: ANTP

PHAZAR CORP (NASDAQ: ANTP) designs, manufactures and markets antennas, towers, support structures, masts and communication accessories worldwide. Today, PHAZAR CORP announces the results of operations for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013

Revenues of $1,159,836 for the first quarter decreased 18% compared to $1,415,218 for the same three month period last year. Sales from our shipboard and safety climb product lines are down $123,755 and $108,045, respectively quarter over quarter.

Cost of sales and contracts from operations were $1,319,406 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to $779,319 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, up $540,087, or 69%. The $540,087 increase consists of approximately $600,000 reserve for slow moving inventory offset by a $59,913 (or 8%) decline in cost of goods sold on back of 18% decrease in sales quarter over quarter. The Company reviewed its policy in estimating slow moving inventory to more accurately value inventory that may have become impaired or obsolete due to advancing technology or changes in demand of product by some customers. As such, the Company incurred a charge of approximately $600,000 which represents a reserve of $197,794 and $402,206 against the raw material and finished goods inventories, respectively. Gross profit margins for the quarter, at 38% before the slow moving inventory charge, were down seven basis points from the 45% gross profit margin reported in the comparable period last year, related to a higher level of overhead rates and a change in the product mix.

Sales and administration expense of $537,996 is down $207,374 or 27.8% for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 compared to the prior year expense of $745,370 related to an increase in plant utilization overhead. Research and development costs of $174,096 were up $74,634, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $99,462 in the prior year. The increase represents continued product development for the commercial wireless product line.
