ORLANDO, Fla., May 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gencor Industries, Inc.

Gross margin increased to 25.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 from 24.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $465,000 to $1,519,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The reduction was primarily due to $393,000 the Company collected on a receivable which had been fully reserved in prior years. Operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $1.8 million compared to $1.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The Company had non-operating income of $1.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to non-operating income of $1.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The decrease in non-operating income was due to lower returns on marketable securities. Net income was $1.9 million, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.31 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

For the six months ended March 31, 2014, the Company had revenue of $24.6 million and net income of $2.3 million ($0.25 per basic and diluted share) versus revenue of $22.7 million and net income of $2.0 million ($0.21 per basic and diluted share) for the six months ended March 31, 2013.

E.J. Elliott, Gencor's Chairman, stated, "The increased sales volume that Gencor experienced in the first quarter did not carry over into the second quarter.  The domestic highway construction industry continues to remain cautious on the shortfall in Federal funding of the Highway Trust Fund.  Gencor reported higher gross and operating margins even though revenues declined in the quarter.  Our business process improvements continue to enable Gencor to remain profitable, even at these revenue levels.  We have been evaluating opportunities for expansion through strategic acquisitions."
