SERVOTRONICS, INC. ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER RESULTS FOR THE PERIOD ENDED JUNE 30, 2017
Elma, NY – Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE American: SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products announced financial results for the period ended June 30, 2017.
Revenues for the quarter were $9,616,000, approximately a 6.6% decrease from $10,296,000 for the same period of 2016. The decrease in revenue is the result of decreases in commercial shipments at the Advanced Technology Group (“ATG”) and Consumer Products Group (“CPG”) offset by increases in revenue from government shipments at both business segments, ATG and CPG. Net income was $105,000 (or $0.05 per share Basic and $0.05 Diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to net income of $1,004,000 (or $0.45 per share Basic and $0.43 Diluted) for the comparable period ended June 30, 2016.
For the second quarter, cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) increased approximately $499,000 or 7.0% due in part to the mix of product sold. Additionally, although consolidated employment levels remain consistent, the Company continues to experience increased labor expenses with the transition of certain workforce responsibilities in response to an increase in production capacity requirements at the ATG. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased approximately $90,000 or 5.9% for the quarter largely due to nonrecurring professional service expenses.
“As we previously disclosed, the Company experienced higher labor costs in 2017 associated with hiring and training employees as we increase production capacity,” commented Kenneth Trbovich, President of Servotronics, Inc. “We believe that ongoing investments in our people and technology will position the Company for long-term success.”
The Company is composed of two groups – the ATG and the CPG. The ATG primarily designs, develops and manufactures servo controls and other components for various commercial and government applications (i.e., aircraft, jet engines, missiles, manufacturing equipment, etc.). The CPG designs and manufactures cutlery, bayonets, pocket knives, machetes and combat knives, survival, sporting, agricultural knives and other edged products for both commercial and government applications.
