CLEVELAND

SIFCO Industries, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SIF) today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended March 31, 2016.

Second Quarter

  • Net sales from continuing operations in the second quarter fiscal 2016 increased 18.1% to $29.1 million, compared to $24.6 million in the second quarter fiscal 2015.
  • Loss from continuing operations before income tax provision in second quarter fiscal 2016 was $0.5 million compared with loss of $1.2 million in second quarter fiscal 2015.
  • Loss from continuing operations for second quarter fiscal 2016 was $0.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with loss of $0.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in second quarter fiscal 2015.

First Six Months

  • Net sales from continuing operations in the first six months of fiscal 2016 increased 25.8% to $56.2 million, compared to $44.7 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2015.
  • Loss from continuing operations before income tax provision in the first six months of fiscal 2016 was $5.1 million compared with a loss of $3.1 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2015.
  • Loss from continuing operations in the first six months of fiscal 2016 was $2.9 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared with loss of $2.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the comparable period in fiscal 2015.

CEO Mike Lipscomb stated, “While still short of our expectations, the second quarter of fiscal 2016 showed improvement over the first quarter of this year and over the same quarter in fiscal 2015 on a continuing operations basis. We continued to incur one-time costs in the quarter related to the delayed filing of our 2015 Form 10-K. With the filing completed in late January, further cost impact from that experience will not affect the future quarters of fiscal 2016. Despite a challenging first half, SIFCO has continued to generate healthy cash flows, as evidenced by an over $10M reduction in debt since the beginning of the fiscal year.

“Over the past several years, our customers have been scheduling deliveries later in the year, and we remain well prepared to meet their demand in the 3rd and 4th quarters. The expansion of our plant in California is progressing well and we are on schedule to occupy the new space in July. I’m proud of the work the team has done and we all remain committed to driving continued operational improvements across all of our plants.”
