SERVOTRONICS, INC. ANNOUNCES 2016 OPERATING RESULTS

Elma, NY – 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 year ended December 31, 2016.
Net income for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2016 was $1,753,000 (or $0.79 per share Basic and $0.76 Diluted) on revenues of $38,587,000 as compared to net income for the same period of 2015 of $4,597,000 (or $2.11 per share Basic and $2.03 Diluted) on revenues of $36,729,000 which included a previously disclosed insurance settlement related to an arbitration award. Excluding the non-recurring items, the Company’s adjusted net income increased approximately 6% from $1,660,000 for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2015 to $1,753,000 for the same period of 2016.
Gross profit for 2016 was $10.0 million, or 26.0% of revenue, compared with $9.1 million, or 24.7% of revenue for 2015. The increase in gross profit in dollars and as a percentage of revenue is primarily due to the mix of product sold as well as the realization of certain expected operational efficiencies attributable to increased production volumes for in-house and outsourced operations. Operating income for 2016 was $2.5 million, or 6.6% of revenue, compared to $2.2 million, or 6.0% of revenue for 2015.
“Our annual financial performance shows that the Company has again achieved record sales with an over 5% increase in revenues from 2015,” observed Kenneth D. Trbovich, President. “The investments in our employees and equipment in 2016 have been made with a long-term outlook towards improving efficiencies and structural cost reductions at both the ATG and CPG. We continue to execute our strategy that we believe is building the foundation necessary for us to achieve our long-term goals for growth in sales and profitability.”
On March 9, 2017, the Company sold certain unused commercial real property in Franklinville, New York for approximately $180,000. While the gain/loss on the sale is immaterial to the Company’s financial statements, the elimination of the carrying costs (taxes, insurance, maintenance, etc.) associated with the property will reduce the CPG’s operating expenses going forward.

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 provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company and allows management to evaluate and compare the core operating performance of the Company from period to period by removing nonrecurring 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).
