Dynasil Corporation Of America Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: DYSL

Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a leading developer of sensing, detection and analysis technology for homeland security, medical and industrial applications, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2013 first quarter ended December 31, 2012.

“Our first-quarter results underscore our focus on right-sizing the cost structure of our various businesses as we work to conserve cash, work through our debt issues and achieve profitability,” said Dynasil Chairman and Interim CEO Peter Sulick. “In the first quarter of fiscal 2013 we were able to reduce operating expenses to their lowest level in five quarters,” said Dynasil Chairman and Interim CEO Peter Sulick. “Total operating expenses decreased from the first quarter of 2012 and were down 5.5% on a sequential basis. General and administrative expenses, which represent a significant component of our total operating expenses, have declined by over $300,000 as compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.”

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $10.6 million, compared with $12.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Contract Research revenues declined to $4.9 million from $6.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, primarily due to lower billable material and subcontractor costs in the 2013 period. The Company’s Contract Research backlog has remained consistent at nearly 18 months. Instruments segment revenues were $1.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared with $2.0 million for the 2012 comparable period. The Company attributes this result to customers delaying the purchase of two existing products, a lead paint analyzer and gamma medical probe, in anticipation of the availability of new versions of these products. Dynasil has completed development work on both refreshed products, which are awaiting required regulatory approvals. Offsetting these revenue decreases were increases in the Company’s Optics business of approximately $300,000.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2013 totaled $4.6 million, or 43.8% of net revenue, compared with $5.1 million, or 42.3% of revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
