RF Industries First Quarter: Record Quarterly Net Income; Revenues Increase 89% With Diluted Earnings Per Share Of $0.19

RF Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: RFIL) announced quarterly sales and consolidated net income for the first quarter ended January 31, 2013.

For the first quarter ended January 31, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $10,509,000, an increase of $4,950,000, or 89%, as compared to $5,559,000 in the same quarter of fiscal 2012. Consolidated net income for the quarter was a record $1,482,000, or $0.21 per basic and $0.19 per diluted share, compared to consolidated net income of $115,000 or $0.02 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2012.

First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

“Our significant growth in revenues and profitability during the first quarter was a result of improved revenues and increased gross margins in each of the four segments of our business. In particular, our Cables Unlimited division continued to see strong demand for its OptiFlex™ Hybrid Custom Fiber Optic and DC Power Cabling solution for wireless towers, which resulted in improved gross margins as increased orders and production outpaced fixed manufacturing costs. Our RF Wireless segment also experienced continued growth related to the fulfillment of its previously reported $2.6 million order from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Finally, selling and general expenses decreased significantly in 2013 as a percentage of sales in spite of $368,000 in charges that were not incurred during the first quarter of 2012. We are optimistic that the second quarter will see growth in both sales and earnings over the second quarter of last year even though RF Wireless sales will decrease from last quarter as we deliver the last installment of the Los Angeles County Fire Department order,” said Howard Hill, RFI’s CEO.

Sales at Cables Unlimited were $5,392,000 for the first quarter, an increase of $3,948,000, or 273% compared to $1,444,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Most of the increase in net sales was the result of the recently introduced Optiflex cabling solution, sales of which represented approximately $3,600,000 in the 2013 fiscal quarter. Cables Unlimited did not offer the Optiflex cable products during the first quarter last year. Cables Unlimited reported gross margin of 41% compared to 37% in the same quarter last year. Operating income for Cables Unlimited in the first quarter was $1,495,000, or 28% of sales, compared to operating income of $23,000 in the first quarter of last year.
