Nortech Systems Reports Second Quarter Results

Nortech Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: NSYS) today reported net sales of $28.5 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, a 10 percent sequential increase from the prior quarter and a one percent increase over the second quarter of 2012. Operating income for the second quarter of 2013 rose 67 percent from the first quarter of 2013 and 17 percent over the second quarter of 2012.

The company’s net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $187,000, or $0.07 per diluted common share. This is a 49 percent increase from the second quarter of 2012, when net income was $126,000, or $0.05 per diluted common share.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, Nortech Systems reported net sales of $54.4 million, compared with $56.4 million for the same period in 2012. Net income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2013, was $328,000, or $0.12 per diluted common share, compared with $249,000, or $0.09 per diluted common share, for the same period in 2012.

Nortech Systems’ improved profitability for the second quarter and six months was aided by continuous improvement from lean workouts, the implementation of automation technology and increased plant utilization.

“We’re pleased to report profitable sales growth for the quarter,” said Mike Degen, Nortech Systems’ CEO, adding that the company’s overall 90-day backlog rose 11 percent year over year. “Sales to defense customers were particularly strong in the quarter as we launched several new programs and a number of new customized cable assemblies.”

Degen concluded, “Our performance so far this year positions us well for the second half of the year.”
