2022 2nd Quarter Report

Servotronics Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter 2022 Including 12% Growth in Revenue

— Revenue expected to increase in the third quarter of 2022 driven by increasing order volume from Servotronics’ Advanced Technology Group —

ELMA, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE American – SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, including 12% growth in revenue.

The company reported second quarter 2022 net loss of $(810,000), or $(0.33) per diluted share. Second quarter 2021 net income of $1,186,000, or $0.49 per diluted share, included a $1.9 million or $0.62 per share contribution to earnings from government-provided employee retention credits (ERC) related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Following deep market declines resulting from the pandemic, we believe we are in the early stages of a strong recovery in our business related to the commercial aircraft market.  This resulted in another quarter of revenue growth, which we expect to continue in the upcoming quarters,” said Chief Executive Officer William F. Farrell, Jr.  “The Servotronics team is focused on delivering on our growth and improving processes while we explore new opportunities for current products and new offerings.  Servotronics is positioned very well for expected top and bottom line growth in existing and new markets.  It is a great time to be part of the team!”

The 12% revenue growth in the second quarter of 2022 was attributed to the recovery of business within the commercial aircraft market for the Advanced Technology Group (ATG) and a shift in product mix toward higher-priced products at both the ATG and the Consumer Products Group (CPG).  Consolidated revenues grew to $11.2 million in 2022 from $10.0 million as compared to the second quarter last year.  ATG revenue grew to $8.7 million in 2022, increasing 11.8% from $7.8 million last year, and CPG revenue grew to $2.5 million in 2022, increasing 12.6% from $2.2 million in 2021.

Growth in consolidated revenue is expected to continue in the third quarter and second half of 2022 as compared to the same periods last year.  This will be driven primarily by anticipated increases in ATG revenue and units shipped under long-term prime contracts and subcontracts.

Second quarter consolidated gross margin dropped to $1.2 million in 2022 from $1.9 in 2021.  Gross margin as a percentage of revenue dropped to 10.4% in 2022, declining from 18.7% in last year’s quarter.  The primary contributors to the margin reduction were the discontinuation of the New York State Shared Work Program in the second half of 2021 and non-recurring expenses at the ATG which included the acceleration of obsoleting inventory due to market changes and a customer driven process change.

Lower second quarter 2022 selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were driven by lower legal and professional fees at the ATG.  Second quarter SG&A was $2.1 million in 2022, decreasing 6.2% from $2.2 million last year. Second quarter SG&A as a percentage of revenue improved to 18.4% in 2022 from 22.0% last year.

Servotronics second quarter operating loss was $0.9 million, an increase of $0.6 million from an operating loss of $0.3 million last year, as current year non-recurring expenses and the discontinuation of last year’s non-recurring benefits were not fully offset by an increase in sales and a decrease in SG&A.
