Nov 16, 2015, 09:50 ET from Servotronics, Inc.

ELMA, N.Y., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SVT), a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products, announced today the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.  Revenue grew over 20% for the three month period ended September 30, 2015 from $8,031,000 to $9,709,000 and net income was $744,000 (or $0.34 per share Basic, $0.33 Diluted).  Revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 grew approximately 18% from $23,016,000 to $27,122,000 and net income was $4,136,000 (or $1.90 per share Basic, $1.83 Diluted).  The growth in revenue is the result of increases in commercial shipments at the Company's two operating segments.

"We are very pleased with the results for the first three quarters of the year," commented Kenneth Trbovich, President of Servotronics. "Our multi-year investment plan at the CPG is nearing completion and we are now manufacturing in the newly constructed facility.  We have made substantial improvements to our operating efficiencies and will continue to focus on our programs of continuous improvement at both the ATG and CPG.  We believe that these investments in the Company today will help us build the foundation that will be necessary for us to achieve our long-term goals for growth in sales and profitability."

Net Loss for the three and nine month periods of 2014 was $3,301,000 (or ($1.54) per share Basic, ($1.46) Diluted) and $2,999,000 (or ($1.40) per share Basic, ($1.32) Diluted), respectively.  Excluding non-recurring items, the Company generated adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 of $744,000 and $1,199,000, respectively, compared to $324,000 and $610,000 for the same periods in 2014. The results for 2014 include an arbitration-related charge in the third quarter of 2014 while the results for 2015 include the related insurance settlement in the first quarter of 2015.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, ("GAAP"). The Company's management uses the non-GAAP measure "adjusted net income" in their analysis of the Company's performance. This measure, as used by Servotronics, adjusts net income determined in accordance with GAAP to reflect changes in financial results associated with the highlighted charges and income items. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure reflecting these non-GAAP adjustments provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results. This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net income determined in accordance with GAAP.


Included below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts ($000's omitted).
