ELMA, N.Y., May 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE-MKT: SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products announced financial results for the period ended March 31, 2017.
Revenues for the quarter were $9,103,000, approximately a 2% increase from $8,947,000 for the same period of 2016. The increase in revenue is the result of increases in commercial shipments at the ATG and increased government shipments at the CPG offset by decreases in revenue from CPG domestic and international commercial channels. Net income was $26,000 (or $0.01 per share Basic and $0.01 Diluted) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to net income of $258,000 (or $0.12 per share Basic and $0.11 Diluted) for the comparable period ended March 31, 2016.
"The increase in revenues for the first quarter were driven by our Advanced Technology Group (ATG), which saw a 4.4% increase compared to last year, offset by our Consumer Products Group (CPG), resulting is nearly a 2% increase overall," commented Kenneth Trbovich, President of Servotronics, Inc. "Our first quarter results were negatively impacted by higher labor costs and general inefficiencies associated with hiring and training employees to meet the demands of increased production. Despite these challenges, we are continuing our efforts to ensure that our labor and material costs meet our expectations."
