SERVOTRONICS, INC. ANNOUNCES
FIRST QUARTER RESULTS
FOR THE PERIOD ENDED MARCH 31, 2016

Elma, NY – 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, 2016.

“Revenues for the first quarter were up nearly 10% from last year led by our Advanced Technology Group,” commented Kenneth Trbovich, President of Servotronics,Inc. “The strong top line numbers are also aided by the progress we have made as we continue to focus on improved efficiencies and structural cost reductions at both the Advanced Technology Group and Consumer Products Group.”

Sales for the quarter were $8,947,000, approximately a 10% increase from $8,171,000 for the same period of 2015. The increase in revenue is the result of increases in commercial shipments at the Advanced Technology Group (ATG) and the Consumer Products Group (CPG). Net income was $258,000 (or $0.12 per share Basic and $0.11 Diluted) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 compared to net income of $2,771,000 (or $1.27 per share Basic and $1.23 Diluted) for the comparable period ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in net income is a result of a 2015 pre-tax insurance settlement related to a previously disclosed arbitration award. Excluding the non-recurring arbitration award expense and insurance settlement, first quarter adjusted net income was $258,000 (or $0.12 per share Basic) compared with adjusted net loss of $166,000 (or ($0.07) per share Basic) 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).
