Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp Announces FY 2012 Results
CARLSTADT, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp (TIK) (TIC) (NYSE MKT: TIK) announced results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. The Company reported an increase in both sales and net income.
Compared to the previous fiscal year, sales for the year increased $2,968,078 (21.9%) to $16,508,678 from $13,540,600 and income from operations increased $512,237 (212.8%) to $676,008 from $163,771. Net income for the year increased to $71,016, or $0.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $127,052, or $0.05 per share, in the previous year. Fiscal year 2012 net income includes a higher tax provision by $256,644 due to a change in the New Jersey State tax law. The change in the New Jersey State tax law did not cause the Company to lose any future benefit, and the result is such that the Company will have lower New Jersey State tax expenses in the future.
Compared to the previous year, sales for the fourth quarter increased $1,402,713 (37.2%) to $5,170,878 from $3,768,165 and income from operations decreased $31,787 (11.2%) to $237,210 from $268,997. Net income decreased to a loss of $48,936, or $0.02 per share, compared to net income of $207,342, or $0.08 per share, in the previous year.
As previously reported, TIC is forecasting sharply reduced revenues and a significant loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ended June 30, 2012 due mainly to a temporary hold in CRAFT 708 production shipments to correct issues discovered in prior CRAFT 719 deliveries and to incorporate the final AIMS approved software configuration which includes several product enhancements. TIC also continues to experience delays in securing a production release on the TS-4530A program from the Army. The Company is working closely with the Navy and the Army to secure production releases on the CRAFT and TS-4530A programs and is optimistic that this will occur within the short-term.
TIC is still predicting significant revenue and profitability growth for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.
Jeff OHara, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tel stated, While we continue to be optimistic about our future, we are disappointed about the delay in achieving the growth we have been anticipating over the last year. Our backlog remains strong at approximately $39 million, and as we get through this short-term delay in shipments, we expect to begin to achieve improved results.
We encourage everyone to read our full results of operations contained in our Form 10-K filed on July 16, 2012 at sec.gov.
