Ultralife Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

NEWARK, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ultralife Corporation (Nasdaq:ULBI) reported an operating loss from continuing operations of $1.9 million on revenue of $17.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. For the second quarter of 2012, the company reported an operating loss from continuing operations of $2.9 million on revenue of $18.7 million.

"Delays in closing several funded projects resulted in Communications Systems' sales coming in below last year's second quarter, and the first quarter of 2013. These delays were the primary source of our second quarter operating loss," said Michael D. Popielec, Ultralife's president and chief executive officer. "Our strategy to widen the aperture of opportunities by investing in new product development ahead of revenue generation has significantly increased the dollar value of our sales funnel of large projects over the past twelve months. However, the ongoing reductions in U.S. Department of Defense spending have made the timing of converting these opportunities to sales more difficult to predict. Since the end of the second quarter, approximately $3 million of the delayed orders have closed which illustrates this dynamic."

Popielec continued, "In Battery & Energy Products, our strategy to diversify our customer base by investing in new products and sales resources and penetrate new market segments is gradually bearing fruit. Sales increased over the first quarter by 12% with new products accounting for 44% of second quarter sales, and with sales to commercial customers accounting for 50% of the mix. As the year-over-year decrease shrinks, we are starting to see indications of revenue stabilization.

"Despite the second quarter operating loss, we maintained strict cash management discipline such that we ended the quarter with $11.6 million of cash on hand, our highest level in over five years, and no debt."
