Elma, NY – Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE MKT – SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products announced today its financial results for the periods ended September 30, 2016.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $1,628,000 (or $0.74 per share Basic and $0.71 Diluted) on revenues of $28,708,000 as compared to net income for the same period of 2015 of $4,136,000 (or $1.90 per share Basic and $1.83 Diluted) on revenues of $27,122,000 which included a previously disclosed insurance settlement related to an arbitration award.  Excluding those items, the Company’s adjusted net income increased approximately 36% from $1,199,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 to $1,628,000 for the same period of 2016. The increase in adjusted net income for 2016 is the result of increases in commercial shipments at the Company’s Advanced Technology Group (ATG) partially offset by a decrease in commercial and government shipments at the Company’s Consumer Products Group (CPG).

Net income for three months ended September 30, 2016 was $366,000 (or $0.17 per share Basic and $0.16 Diluted) on revenues of $9,465,000 compared to net income for the same period of 2015 of $744,000 (or $0.34 per share Basic and $0.33 Diluted) on revenues of $9,709,000.  The decrease in net income for the third quarter is the result of decreases in sales at the CPG partially offset by increases in sales at the ATG coupled with increased operating expenses as a percentage of sales.

“The Company’s third quarter financial results continued to reflect strong production volumes and solid performance in our Advanced Technology Group” said Servotronics’ President, Kenneth D. Trbovich. “Our year-to-date financial performance positions the Company to achieve record sales in 2016.  We continue to work on improving our operations and cost structure at our Consumer Products Group and expect to be positioned to win new business opportunities in the future.”

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).
