SERVOTRONICS, INC. ANNOUNCES 2019 OPERATING RESULTS
Elma, NY – Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE American – 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, 2019.
Net income for year ended December 31, 2019 was $2,109,000 (or $0.91 per share Basic and $0.88 Diluted) on consolidated revenues of $55,272,000 as compared to net income for the same period of 2018 of $3,498,000 (or $1.54 per share Basic and $1.49 Diluted) on revenues of $47,857,000.
Gross margin for 2019 was $12,126,000, or 21.9% of revenue, compared with $12,085,000, or 25.3% of revenue for 2018. The gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased at both the ATG and CPG. The decrease at the ATG is primarily due to the write down of inventory, an increase in indirect labor, employee benefits, transportation and tooling, offset by overhead liquidation. The decrease at the CPG is primarily attributed to a reduction in revenue and lower factory utilization. In terms of dollar value, the Company’s consolidated gross margin increased slightly by approximately $41,000 or 0.3% for the year ended December 31, 2019 when compared to the same period in 2018.
“2019 was our sixth consecutive year of revenue growth reflecting our strategy to build long-term, sustainable and steady growth” said Kenneth D. Trbovich, CEO and Chairman of the Board. “While our gross margin saw a slight improvement in 2019, we remain focused on improving our margins as a percentage of revenues by focusing on our product mix and by investing in technological improvements and our workforce. 2020 will certainly be a challenging year for all of us as we deal with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. I want to thank our valued employees and suppliers for their efforts in implementing our business continuity plan as we continue to support the United States defense and critical infrastructure sectors.”
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.
