YAHUD, Israel, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Magal S3 Ltd. (NASDAQ GMS: MAGS, TASE: MAGS) today announced its financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2010. Management will hold an investors' conference call later today, at 10am Eastern Time and 5pm Israel time, to discuss the results.
FOURTH QUARTER 2010 RESULTS SUMMARY
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled $15.1 million, an increase of 1% compared to the $15.0 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2009, and an increase of 13% compared to the $13.4 million reported in the prior quarter.
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $5.5 million, or 36.6% of revenues. This is compared to a gross profit of $6.2 million, or 41.7% of revenues as reported for the fourth quarter of 2009. The change in gross margin between quarters is due to the change in the sales mix between the quarters.
Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was reduced to $562,000 compared with an operating loss of $1.0 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Financing expenses in the quarter amounted to $405,000 compared to $503,000 in the fourth quarter of 2009. Financing expenses in the quarter were due to the interest accumulated on the bridge loan received from the Company's principal shareholder as well as due to changes in the exchange rates of the Israel shekel and Canadian Dollar against the US Dollar.
Taxes on income in the quarter were $556,000 compared with tax expenses of $1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The relatively high tax expense in the quarter compared with prior quarters was due the fact that some of the Company's subsidiaries achieved profitable operations in the fourth quarter of 2010. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company's tax expense rate was relatively high due to valuation allowances recorded with respect to carry forward tax losses of one of our subsidiaries.
Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010, was $1.5 million, compared with net income of US$1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, which included income from discontinued operations of US$4.3 million following the sale of a European subsidiary.
Net loss per share in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $0.14, compared with net income per diluted share of $0.16 in the same period last year.
FULL YEAR 2010 RESULTS SUMMARY
Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 were US$49.7 million, an 8.8% decrease compared with the previous year. Gross profit for the year was US$18.3 million, representing 36.8% of revenues, compared with US$21.1 million, representing 38.7% of revenues in 2009. Operating loss for 2010 was US$4.7 million, compared with an operating loss of US$2.9 million in 2009.
Net loss for 2010 was US$6.2 million compared with a net loss of US$1.1 million in 2009. Net loss per share for the year ended December 31, 2010 was US$0.60, compared with a net loss per share of US$0.11 in 2009.
As of December 31, 2010, the Company's backlog was $50.2 million, compared with $17.8 million on December 31, 2009.
Commenting on the results, Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal, said, "The continued sequential improvement in some of our quarterly metrics, particularly revenue, point to the fact that we are moving in the right direction. The fourth quarter and the first few months of 2011 have been very eventful for Magal as we won a number of contracts in various emerging markets, particularly Asia, South America and Africa, and we expect to see the revenues and results from these wins in the coming quarters."
Continued Mr. Livneh, "Most important was the year-end $21 million contract we obtained to supply and integrate a security system for the port of Mobassa in Kenya, a highly prestigious project which will be partially financed by the World Bank. We can also point to other recent wins including a security system for another seaport in West Africa, perimeter security systems in an airport and nuclear power stations in various countries in Asia, protection of a federal crisis bunker in South America, and protection of homeland security and other critical sites in Israel. We continue to compete for additional tenders in these regions where we have already substantially proven our capabilities, and we believe that the fruits of our efforts and success will become more apparent as we move into the second half of 2011 and beyond."
