Stocks in this article: OESX

Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: OESX), a leading power technology enterprise, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 second quarter ended September 30, 2013.

“Having begun providing financial guidance just last quarter, we are very pleased with our results and about the direction of the company going forward,” said John Scribante, Chief Executive Officer of Orion Energy Systems. “Revenue rose 42% year-over-year and was up 32% sequentially versus the first quarter, and we posted earnings of $0.03 per share excluding one-time charges and tax benefits. We also generated $7.6 million in cash from operations in the quarter, as we continued to focus on inventory management, cash collection, and improved asset utilization.

“The integration with Harris is near completion, as we proceed with consolidating facilities and eliminating redundancies where appropriate – which we anticipate will save Orion approximately $1 million annually by the end of calendar 2014. The acquired business is operating precisely as expected and helping us gain a foothold in several rapidly-expanding LED markets, where we are now adding some significant, multi-year clients with geographically diverse operations. We believe the company is very well positioned in the markets we serve, and we are pursuing new channels for growth, new customers, and manufacturing economies of scale that will drive shareholder value in the quarters to come.”

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2014

For the fiscal 2014 second quarter ended September 30, 2013, the Company reported revenue of $27.5 million, up 42% compared to revenue of $19.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The Company reported income from operations of $0.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, a 105% improvement versus a loss from operations of $4.1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company reported net income of $2.4 million, or $0.11 per share, versus a net loss of $9.7 million, or $(0.46) per share, in the prior-year period. The fiscal 2014 second quarter included a tax benefit of $2.2 million, or $0.10 per share, related to the acquisition of Harris; this quarter also included $(0.02) per share in non-cash purchase accounting charges for marking-to-market the earnout provision for the Harris acquisition and acquisition related legal, accounting and integration expenses. In the prior-year period, the fiscal 2013 second quarter included a tax expense of $5.6 million, or $(0.27) per share, to record a full valuation allowance against deferred tax assets.
