Inrad Optics, Inc. Announces FY 2012 Financial Results

Apr 03, 2013, 16:18 ET from Inrad Optics, Inc.

NORTHVALE, N.J., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inrad Optics, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: INRD) has released its consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $2.8 million, a decrease of approximately 18% from $3.4 million in the corresponding quarter of 2011.  Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 were $3.6 million.  For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, net sales were $11.4 million, down 13.5% from $13.2 million, last year, and relatively unchanged from 2010.

The Company ended 2012 with bookings of $12.3 million compared to $12.9 million in 2011, down 4.7%.  However, bookings in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $3.4 million, up significantly from $2.7 million in the same period in 2011, a 25% increase.  The Company's year-end backlog was $5.9 million, up 18% versus $5.0 million at the end of 2011. 

The Company reported a net loss of $(659,000) in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $142,000 and $471,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011 and 2010, respectively.  Fourth quarter basic and diluted loss per share was $(0.06) versus basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.01 and $0.04 in the comparable quarter in 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The Company's 2012 fourth quarter net loss reflected an income tax provision for a write-off of deferred tax assets of $408,000, compared to an income tax provision for federal and state taxes of $11,000 in 2011.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $(1,421,000) and a basic and diluted loss per share of  $(0.12) after the write-off of deferred tax assets in the fourth quarter.  This compares with net income of $165,000 and basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.01 for the year ended December 31, 2011.  The Company had a net loss of $(734,000) and a basic and diluted net loss per share of $(0.06) in 2010.  

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company had a gross profit of $567,000 or 20.4% of sales down from $998,000 or 29.5% and $1.2 million or 33.8% in the comparable quarter in 2011 and 2010 as gross margins were negatively impacted by the decrease in year over year sales since 2010 as the Company's overhead structure remained relatively fixed.  For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, gross profit was $2.5 million or 21.8% of sales compared to $3.6 million or 27.0% and $2.5 million or 22.7%, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

EBITDA1 for 2012 was $2,000 versus $1.3 million in 2011.  

Net cash used in operating activities was $(208,000) for 2012 compared to $(358,000) in 2011.  Cash flow was impacted in 2011 by a payment of $1,125,000 in accrued interest on convertible notes.

In 2012, the Company negotiated an equipment loan from Valley National Bank in the amount of $750,000 and paid $500,000 as a deposit on new thin film coating equipment which was delivered in the first quarter of 2013.

The Company ended the year with cash of $3.1 million, down from $3.4 million at the end of 2011.

Amy Eskilson, President and CEO of Inrad Optics stated, "Our 2012 results are heavily influenced by a marked reduction in orders from a key semiconductor customer, and an ongoing decrease in defense sector orders. The $1.4 million loss also includes a $408K income tax provision to write off the balance of the Company's deferred tax asset, a decision carefully considered by the Company.

"While 2012 was disappointing from a financial standpoint, we see several positive characteristics as well.  Our fourth quarter bookings were up 25% over the same period in 2011, and our year-end backlog of $5.9 million reached its highest point since 2008. The organization has completed a significant strategic planning process and we are now executing on that strategic plan.  We have made a substantial investment in new state of the art thin film coating equipment to round out our vertical manufacturing capability for large form factor optics in both traditional glasses and metal.  Early in 2013, we rightsized the business, eliminating a total of eight positions and trimming production staff by just one position in each facility.  The resulting employee population is both leaner and more efficiently structured, and our manufacturing capabilities are not only intact, but optimized. Also of note, the rightsizing is expected to save the Company approximately $653,000 annually. I continue to be excited about Inrad Optics' future; we are adding new customers, continuing our R and D effort in new optical materials, and building a portfolio of sought after optical products and expertise."

1 Note Regarding Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

The Company defines EBITDA1 as earnings (loss) before non-cash, stock-based compensation, net interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization.  EBITDA is presented herein because we consider these numbers an important measure of the Company's ability to internally fund capital expenditures and service debt.  EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to cash flow as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, or liquidity.  The reader is referred to the Supplemental Financial Data set forth below for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA.
