Dynasil Corporation of America Reports Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results Filing of Annual Report on Form 10-K

WATERTOWN, Mass., Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a developer of sensing, detection and analysis technology for homeland security, medical and industrial applications, today announced financial results for fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 and the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 were $42.8 million. This represents a decrease of $5.1 million or 10.6% over revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 of $47.9 million

Gross profit for fiscal 2013 totaled $18.1 million, or 42.3% of net revenue, compared with $19.5 million, or 40.7% of revenue for fiscal 2012.  Gross profit margin improved primarily as a result of higher gross margins in the Contract Research segment partially offset by a decrease in the Instruments segment.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $1.5 million to $19.4 million or 45.4% of sales in fiscal year 2013, from $20.9 million or 43.7% of sales for fiscal year 2012.  SG&A expenses decreased primarily as a result of the substantial completion of the engineering costs associated with the product refreshes in our Instruments segment.

The Instruments segment had the greatest decrease in SG&A costs, decreasing $1.6 million to $3.5 million in 2013 compared to $5.1 million in 2012.  This segment had two main product lines: a hand-held lead paint analyzer and a medical gamma probe used primarily in breast cancer treatment. The Company began a product refresh on both product lines in 2012 to enhance them with new features and functionality to maintain their market positions.  The Company spent $1.3 million in fiscal year 2012 on research and development on the products and significant additional amounts on sales and marketing efforts in advance of the new product launches. In fiscal year 2013, these costs and other SG&A costs were substantially reduced while awaiting regulatory approval. 

The Company's updated medical probe, the Navigator 2.0, was approved for sale in May of 2013.   However, as a result of the delays associated with both product line updates and an internal review of strategic alternatives for the lead paint analyzer product, the Company performed an interim impairment test of the Instrument segment and recorded an impairment of goodwill and intangibles totaling $6.8 million in the quarter ending March 31, 2013.

"As reported previously, we are making important steps in right-sizing our business, reducing outstanding indebtedness, and eliminating cost.  With the spin out of our tissue sealant technology to the newly-formed subsidiary, Xcede Technologies, Inc. in October and the divestiture of our XRF product line in November, we continue to make significant improvements to our cash flows and our balance sheet," said Peter Sulick, Chairman and CEO of Dynasil.   "Going forward, we are focused on improving our liquidity and pursuing strategic initiatives that best position the company for future profitable growth."

Including the goodwill impairment charge, net loss for the 12 months ended September 30, 2013 was $8.7 million, or $0.59 per share, compared with a loss of $4.3 million, or $0.29 per share, in fiscal 2012.

Liquidity

On December 31, 2012, the Company announced it was in default of certain financial covenants set forth in the terms of its outstanding indebtedness with respect to its fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.   We continued to be in default throughout our fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 and currently remain in default.  As a result, our lenders have the ability to require immediate payment of all indebtedness under our loan agreements.  While the lenders have not exercised this right, their ability to require immediate payment has caused all of our outstanding indebtedness to be accelerated to current classification in our consolidated financial statements.

The Company has made all principal and interest payments due to its senior lender through the date of this filing.  In addition to making the required principal payments of approximately $1.9 million during fiscal year 2013, the Company also repaid an additional $300,000 of principal in connection with the contribution of its tissue sealant intellectual property to Xcede Technologies, Inc., a joint venture with Mayo Clinic formed on or about October 1, 2013 to spin out and separately fund the development of the tissue sealant technology.  Xcede has initiated financing efforts and has received funding from internal sources and outside investors.

The Company has accrued but not remitted monthly interest payments to its subordinated lender since February 2013 and does not expect to resume interest payments to its subordinated lender until it resolves its default with the senior lender.   

Subsequent to fiscal year-end, the Company also repaid approximately $1.25 million of principal to its senior lender from the proceeds received from the sale of its lead paint business included in the Instruments segment.  Management is continuing to pursue potential other sales transactions which, if consummated, would result in additional principal payments to the bank and also expects to continue discussions with its lenders to address the financial covenant situation.  Because of the continuing default of the financial covenants and the possibility of an acceleration of the indebtedness by the lenders, the Company has classified all its outstanding indebtedness as a current liability in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Given the Company's results and the uncertainty created by the defaults under the outstanding indebtedness, the Company's independent registered public accounting firm has included a "going concern" explanatory paragraph in its audit opinion for the year ended September 30, 2013.
