Sparton Corporation Reports $0.43 EPS For Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter

Stocks in this article: SPA

Sparton Corporation (NYSE: SPA) today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended December 31, 2012. The Company reported second quarter sales of $66.0 million, or an increase of 19.2 %, from $55.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Reported net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $4.4 million or $0.43 per share, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.19 per share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Cary Wood, President & CEO, commented, “The first half $0.52 diluted earnings per share results outpaced the first half of the prior year by 57%. As expected, the second quarter was very strong, as delayed shipments from the first quarter were realized during the current quarter and a tax benefit resulting from a worthless stock deduction was recognized as a result of ceasing our Canadian operation a number of years ago. On an adjusted basis, the first half earnings per share of $0.36 is up from the same time period last year.”

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

    Awarded 13 new business programs during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 with estimated 2 nd half fiscal 2013 revenue of $2.7 million.
 
Quarter end sales backlog of approximately $211.5 million, including approximately $30.5 million from the Company’s newly acquired business, representing a 35% increase over the previous quarter and a 67% increase over a year ago. Excluding the newly acquired business, backlog was approximately $181.0 million representing a 16% increase over the previous quarter and a 43% increase over a year ago.
 
Completed the acquisition of Onyx EMS, LLC.
 
Entered into a new five year banking agreement with BMO Harris Bank providing $65 million of committed credit facilities. The new facility also includes a $35 million accordion feature which could raise the total facility to $100 million.
 
Recognized a $2.1 million income tax benefit from claiming a worthless stock and bad debt deduction with respect to the Company’s investments in and advances to its 100% owned Canadian subsidiary.

Onyx Acquisition

Mr. Wood continued, “We are extremely pleased to have closed the Onyx acquisition this past November. The first six weeks have resulted in a neutral impact to adjusted earnings and positive incremental EBITDA. We continue to expect that, as operational synergies and new business opportunities are realized, the acquisition will be accretive to earnings by the end of the year. The entry into the Minneapolis technological corridor laden with many large Medical OEM’s has already opened doors for Sparton’s legacy medical business for engineering programs as well as allowing the South Dakota team to explore larger and more complex device build opportunities with existing customers that were previously unattainable.”
