Versar, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Reports Improved Net Income and Gross Profit Margins

Feb 11, 2013, 09:15 ET from Versar, Inc.

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VSR) today announced financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended December 28, 2012. 

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $0.9 million or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, an increase of 12.5% compared to net income of $0.8 million or $0.09 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

The Company achieved gross profit margins of 15.3% in the second quarter as compared to 11.0% in the same quarter last year and operating income margins improved to 6.1% from 4.2% in the same quarter last year. The improved margins were largely due to the Company's continued focus on controlling costs and improving project management. 

Gross revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $24.7 million, a decrease of 21.1% compared to revenue of $31.3 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012. This decrease was a result of anticipated reductions in government spending for international reconstruction operations and construction management services in Iraq. This slowdown was coupled with lower domestic revenue of $1.8 million related to Versar's completion of the Tooele Chemical Demilitarization project in fiscal year 2012.  However, the recent award of the $170 million Afghan PSC IDIQ will increase our work in Afghanistan.

For the first six months of fiscal year 2013, Versar recorded gross revenue of $48.3 million.  While this was a 25.2% decrease compared to revenue of $64.6 million in the first six months of last fiscal year, gross profit margin improved to 14.7% of sales, compared to a gross profit margin of 11.1% in the first six months of the prior year.  Operating income increased 11.5% in the first half of fiscal year 2013 to $2.9 million from $2.6 million in the same period last year.  Versar achieved net income of $1.8 million or $0.19 per basic and diluted share in the first six months of fiscal year 2013 compared to $1.6 million or $0.18 per basic and diluted share in the first six months of fiscal year 2012. 

As of December 28, 2012, Versar recorded funded backlog of approximately $118 million, an increase of 39% compared to approximately $85 million at December 30, 2011.  This increase was due largely to new awards won related to new work in Afghanistan and our performance-based remediation projects ("PBR") for the U.S Air Force at various installations across the United States. 

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Versar announced its selection as prime contractor to perform performance-based remediation (PBR) for the New England Region. The initial funded award value is $10.5 million, with options totaling $4.5 million for a potential contract total of $15 million over the next eight years. These services will be performed for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) under the WERC09 contract at Hanscom Air Force Base, MA; New Boston Air Reserve Station, MA; Westover Air Reserve Base, MA; and Niagara Air Reserve Station, NY.  

Tony Otten, CEO of Versar said, "We have achieved another quarter of solid profitability, improved margins and strengthened backlog.  While we saw an anticipated decline in revenues related to the reduction in government spending in Iraq and wind down of Title II work in Afghanistan in the first half of this fiscal year, we are now fully ramped up on our Afghanistan Personal Services contract.  We continue to make progress in securing significant contracts for opportunities related to non-discretionary funding such as sustainable range management, unexploded ordnance and performance based remediation (PBR).   The recent New England Region Air Force award is our fourth major AFCEC PBR award in just over a year and clearly validates our capabilities in accomplishing remediation and compliance activities at contaminated sites.  We continue to pursue opportunities to provide our expertise to assist our existing and new partners with effective and permanent solutions and identifying new partners." 

Mr. Otten concluded, "Our balance sheet is strong with over $13 million in cash and working capital of $25 million, positioning us well to drive organic growth as well as to pursue acquisitions."
