AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 11, 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 first quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Highlights:

  • Net sales were $17.2 million, a 13% increase compared to last year and the highest Q1 revenue in five years.
  • Sales within the Marks brand of products grew 23% compared to last year, representing the fifth consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth in this unit.
  • StarLink recurring revenue for the quarter increased 110% as compared to last year and grew sequentially by 13% as demand for our recurring revenue producing wireless security communicator continues to accelerate.
  • Gross margin improved 200 basis points to 29.2% as compared to 27.2% for the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (*see table attached) was $725,000, an increase of $640,000 over last year and the highest Q1 level in five years.
  • Net Income increased by $557,000 compared to last year to $123,000 which is the highest Q1 net income in five years.
  • NAPCO reduced its debt by $3.4 million during the quarter. Debt, net of cash, was $9.8 million as of September 30, 2013, a reduction of $26.1 million since acquiring Marks in August of 2008.
  • Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities increased 141% to $3.8 million as compared to $1.6 million a year ago.

Richard Soloway, Chairman and President stated, "NAPCO delivered another strong quarter with growth coming from each of our four major business Divisions; NAPCO Security & Fire, Alarm Lock Electronic Access Control Locking, Mark's USA Architectural Hardware and Continental Enterprise-Class Access Control. Our efforts to develop, introduce and promote product lines which deliver recurring monthly revenue to the Company are paying off. In fact, the launch of the enhanced Starlink3™ 3G/4G Wireless Communicator has achieved record-setting levels of initial subscription activations for a product in this class. We are seeing accelerating demand for our StarLink product line. Additionally, other SaaS, subscription-based product lines, such as iBridge™ Connected Home Services and iSee Video™ Remote Video Services, continue to build solid growth, providing more predictability to our revenues and helping to reduce seasonality inherent in our business. The bottom line improvement demonstrates the leverage in our financial model at higher revenue levels as well as the impact of recurring revenue."

Mr. Soloway added, "Q1 saw the introduction of our Project LocDown™ cross-divisional initiative, which aims to bring a higher level of security and access control to K-12 schools, universities and public facilities where attacks by active shooters are a threat. The Company has launched the School Access-Control Vulnerability Index (S.A.V.I.), Audit and Dealer Certification Process to the industry and educational community. The program aims to have an industry-wide initiative whereby a school facility's holistic security level can be quantitatively measured. This will help educational facilities identify and address vulnerabilities in access control points, and will provide administrators with authoritative, comprehensive recommendations for appropriate security systems. Our Marks USA LocDown™ intruder locks, Alarm Lock's Networx™ wireless locks and Continental's Access Control's card access systems and software, provide a unique, end-to-end access control and lock-down solution to the education market, and we look forward to working with providers in adjacent technologies to advance this important educational initiative."

Mr. Soloway concluded, "Our primary objective for fiscal 2014 and beyond is to continue to work aggressively to gain market penetration and increase market share throughout each of our Divisions. Our strong balance sheet and cash flows allow us the flexibility to continue to bring innovative state-of-the-art security products to market at a rapid pace. Historically, our quarters get stronger as the fiscal year progresses. Fiscal 2014 is off to a good start and we believe we are well positioned to achieve increased revenue and profitability for this fiscal year and years to come."
