Management to Host Conference Call Today at 11 a.m.

AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSC), one of the world's leading suppliers of high performance electronic security equipment for over 30 years, today announced financial results for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.

Highlights:

  • Net sales for the fourth quarter were $21.8 million, the highest quarterly revenue in five years, an increase of 10% over last year. Net sales for the year were $71.4 million, up from $70.9 million last year.
  • Sales within the Marks brand of products grew 29% in the fourth quarter, representing the fourth consecutive quarter of growth in this unit. Marks sales increased 18% for the year.
  • StarLink2 recurring revenue for the year increased 166% and grew sequentially by 20%.
  • Gross margin improved 270 basis points to 38.1% for the quarter as compared to 35.4% for the same period last year. Gross margin for the year was slightly higher at 30.4% as compared to 29.8% a year ago.
  • Debt, net of cash, has been reduced by $22.7 million from $35.9 million to $13.2 million since acquiring Marks in August of 2008, with $4.1 million of this reduction occurring in this fiscal year. As a result of the lower debt levels and lower interest rates, net interest expense for the fiscal year decreased by $575,000 or 50% to $574,000 as compared to $1.1 million for last year.
  • Earnings per Share (Diluted) rose 89% to $0.17 from $0.09 for the quarter and 33% to $0.16 from $0.12 for the year.
  • Launched a campus lock down product, a new category, and realized largest single order for the company since inception.

Richard Soloway, Chairman and President stated, "This was a strong finish to a solid year, as we delivered our highest quarterly revenue level in five years and matched our best quarter ever for net income. The improved top- and bottom-line results largely reflect increases in demand from our access control and door-locking products, and demonstrate the global factors, which are driving interest in advanced security solutions like those we offer. During the fourth quarter, sales for our access control and architectural locking products gained substantial traction, with demand from the education vertical market leading the way as schools and university administrations seek out solutions to protect their students and faculty. Gross margin increased due to favorable product mix, increased recurring revenue, a result of robust demand for our more sophisticated, higher margin products, and economies of scale. When our top line exceeds $20 million, we are able to most effectively leverage our manufacturing infrastructure."

Mr. Soloway continued, "The introduction of Alarm Lock's Networx™ wireless locks, integrated with Continental's Access Control enterprise-class, card access systems, has proven to be a solid sales success by providing K-12 and university campus end-users with unique global lock-down capabilities. Our Marks USA LocDown™ intruder lock, which allows teachers to achieve manual lock-down, from inside the classroom, without stepping into harm's way, also increased in sales. In addition, the introduction of Marks USA's anti-ligature LifeSaver™ product, an ANSI Grade 1 Institutional Life Safety lockset, which addresses managed liability and accident/suicide prevention in behavioral health care institutions, has provided us with another substantial contributor to sales growth."

Mr. Soloway concluded, "We continue to emphasize diversification in our product portfolio and opportunities to increase our recurring monthly service revenues.  Of our growing stable of security products, iSee Video™, iBridge™ and StarLink™, are generating such recurring revenue streams for NAPCO, and continue to gain traction in the market through our dealer network. The NAPCO StarLink2™ wireless GSM alarm communicator, which enables homes and businesses to communicate alarm signals wirelessly to a central monitoring station, remains a solid contributor to our sales growth. Q4 saw the highly successful introduction of our state-of-the-art StarLink3™ 3G/4G communicator. This product enables alarm monitoring on the most advanced cellular network in the country. We remain committed to providing our dealers with the highest quality products, at all different price points, and continuing to build our reputation for exceptional, ubiquitous technology that protects people where they live, work, and study."
