Mechanical Technology Announces Fiscal Year 2012 Operating And Financial Results

Mechanical Technology, Incorporated (MTI) (Trading Symbol: MKTY), a company engaged in the design, manufacture and sale of test and measurement instruments and systems through its subsidiary MTI Instruments, Inc. (MTI Instruments), announces its 2012 financial and operating results.

The Company’s total revenue for 2012 decreased to $5.9 million or 42.6% from $10.3 million in 2011. Net loss attributed to MTI for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $2.1 million or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $2.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share in 2011. This decrease in net income of $4.5 million is partially attributable to a release of a portion of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance of $1.5 million in 2011. The remainder of the decrease in net income is related to a decline in sales at MTI Instruments which was partially offset by reduced operating losses of our variable interest entity, MTI MicroFuel Cells, Inc.

Kevin Lynch, CEO stated: “For the first three quarters of 2012, we experienced adverse conditions at our Instruments business primarily in the aviation balancing equipment sales due to reductions and delays in government spending; however, our fourth quarter sales and operational cost actions resulted in positive improvement in all business areas. For the first three quarters of 2012, our revenue was $3.7 million, and our full year revenue for 2012 was $5.9 million. We believe our results for the first quarter of 2013 will continue this momentum.”
