Cary Wood, President & CEO, commented, “The 2% increase in our base business revenue in the third quarter reflects additional domestic sonobuoy sales and the return of certain programs that had been delayed in previous quarters, which were offset by continued customer demand, program delays, and product end of life events within the MDS business. Although organic growth is slightly lower than the 3-5% target range we’ve previously communicated as the goal, it is an improvement over the previous two quarters. In the ECP and MDS segments, we closed on a total of 96 program and/or product wins in the third quarter with a first time order value of $12.9 million. The addition of Hunter Technology subsequent to the close of the quarter further expands Sparton regionally into Northern California, diversifies our customer base through both existing programs and a strong business development pipeline, increases our engineering service capabilities and new product introduction (NPI) offerings, and continues to grow the number of complex sub-assembly and full device programs while allowing us to offer an expanded list of services such as our low cost country footprint in Viet Nam and a full complement of engineering design capabilities. Our SG&A costs have increased reflecting added costs from recent acquisitions, future potential acquisition related expense activity, as well as increases in anticipation of the future growth of the Company. We view these items as long-term investments to support the execution of our 2020 Vision.”

Third Quarter Highlights

  • 96 new program or product wins were awarded with a first time order value of $12.9 million; 28 in MDS with a first time order value of $9.2 million and 68 in ECP (ASW, Aydin and NavEx) with a first time order value of $3.7 million.
  • Quarter end sales backlog of approximately $257.2 million, representing a 47% increase over the prior year quarter.
  • Completed the acquisition of Real-Time Enterprises, Inc. and the acquisition of certain assets of KEP Marine, a business and division of Kessler-Ellis Products, Inc. in January 2015, and the acquisition of Stealth.com in March 2015.
  • Repurchased $0.4 million of the Company’s stock, completing the Company’s $5.0 million stock repurchase plan.
  • Recognized an income tax benefit of approximately $1.0 million in relation to the substantial reversal of a valuation allowance previously established against the Company’s Canadian net operating loss carryforwards.
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, amended revolving credit facility, increasing committed facility size from $200 million to $275 million and resetting the facility’s accordion feature to $100 million.
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, completed the acquisition of Hunter Technology Corporation in April 2015.

Stealth.com

On March 16, 2015, the Company completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Stealth.com, an $8 million USD annual revenue business, located in Woodbridge, ON, Canada in a $16.0 CAD ($12.6 USD) million all-cash transaction. The acquired business, which is part of the Company’s ECP segment, is a supplier of high performance ruggedized industrial grade computer systems and peripherals that include Mini PC/Small Form Factor Computers, Rackmount Server PCs, Rugged Industrial LCD Monitors, Rugged Portable PCs, Industrial Grade Keyboards and Rugged Trackballs and Mice.

Hunter Technology Corporation

On April 14, 2015, subsequent to the close of the quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of Hunter Technology (“Hunter”), an $80.5 million annual revenue business, with operations located in Milpitas, CA (San Jose) and Lawrenceville, GA (Atlanta), in a $55 million all-cash transaction. Hunter, which is part of the Company’s MDS segment, was founded in 1968 and was one of the first electronic contract manufacturing providers specializing in military and aerospace applications. Today, Hunter is one of the few suppliers in the Silicon Valley region providing engineering design, new product introduction (NPI) and full-rate production manufacturing solutions working with major defense and aerospace companies, test and measurement suppliers, secure networking solution providers, medical device manufacturers, and a wide variety of industrial customers.

Segment Results

During the first quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company changed its reportable segments to align with the way it internally reports and manages the business. The prior reportable segments of Medical and Complex Systems have been combined and are referred to as Manufacturing & Design Services or “MDS”. The prior DSS reportable segment and subsequently acquired businesses providing rugged electronics are now referred to as Engineered Components & Products or “ECP”.

MDS base business sales reflect sales from MDS facilities that were owned for the entire three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014. MDS acquisition sales relate to the acquisition of Aubrey in fiscal 2014 and the acquisitions of eMT and RTEmd in fiscal 2015. The comparative decrease in base business sales reflects the previously disclosed loss of certain Fenwal program engagements with the Company that began in the Company’s fiscal 2014 third quarter. The lost Fenwal programs negatively affected comparative sales $3.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. The remaining decrease reflects fluctuations in customer demand due to program cancellations, governmental funding and customer design related delays.

Gross profit percentage on MDS sales remained relatively consistent quarter over quarter. The selling and administrative expense increase is primarily comprised of incremental direct and allocated expenses related to the RTEmd, eMT, and Aubrey operations. The increase in amortization of intangible assets relates to the amortization of customer relationships, non-compete agreements and tradenames acquired as part of the fiscal 2015 eMT transaction and the non-compete agreements acquired as part of the fiscal 2014 Aubrey transaction.

ECP base business sales reflect sales from ECP facilities that were owned for the entire three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 as well as sales in fiscal 2015 relating to IED, Argotec and KEP, as sales relating to these tuck-in acquisitions were not considered material for separate presentation. ECP acquisition sales relate to the acquisition of Stealth in fiscal 2015. The increase in ECP base business sales reflects increased sonobuoy sales to the U.S. Navy and increased sales of ruggedized flat panel displays, partially offset by decreased sonobuoy sales to foreign governments.

Gross profit percentage on ECP sales was negatively affected in the current year quarter by unfavorable product mix, partially offset by the positive impact of increased sales volume. The selling and administrative expense increase reflects certain increased costs in anticipation of future growth.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had $80.0 million borrowed and approximately $120.0 million available under its credit facility and had available cash and cash equivalents of $5.6 million. As of that date, the Company had received performance based payments under U.S. Navy contracts in excess of the funding of production to date under those contracts of $1.2 million.

Sparton has entered into a Second Amendment dated as of April 13, 2015 (“Amendment”) to its Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement and Security Agreement (“Credit Agreement”) with BMO Harris Bank N.A., Bank of America, N.A., U.S. Bank National Association, SunTrust Bank, Fifth Third Bank, Associated Bank, N.A., Keybank National Association, and Wintrust Bank. BMO Harris Bank acted as the lead agent for the lenders in a syndication arranged by BMO Capital Markets.

The Amendment augments the Company’s Credit Agreement by increasing the revolving line of credit facility by $75 million, to $275 million and adding a $50 million multicurrency sublimit to support the Company’s future acquisitions, working capital needs and other general corporate purposes. The Company has the right to request an increase of the facility in an amount of up to $100 million. It is secured by substantially all assets of the Company and its subsidiaries and expires on September 11, 2019.

Outlook

Cary Wood concluded, “The organic growth realized in the third quarter was primarily due to the strength of our sonobuoy and rugged electronics business positively offsetting issues within the MDS segment. The softening we experienced in the first half of the year with our MDS base business continued to a lesser extent in the third quarter as we experienced fluctuations in customer demand and program delays, coupled with the one-year anniversary of the fiscal 2014 Fenwal rebalancing decision occurring within the quarter. The Company’s organic sales pipeline continues to be robust and we remain well positioned to deliver positive year over year base business results for fiscal 2016 as we begin to capitalize on synergistic selling opportunities presented by our recent acquisitions. Our acquisition pipeline is similarly robust as evidenced, in part, by the completion of seven acquisitions this fiscal year, three since our last earnings release and the fourteenth since initiating the 2010 Strategic Growth Plan. As previously discussed, we anticipate finishing the year strong in our base business and the addition of the most recent acquisitions coupled with the full year impact of the other acquisitions made this year, will put us close to reaching the stated aspiration of a $500 million revenue run-rate milestone. We continue to be prudent in our acquisition due diligence processes and we will continue to seek appropriate transactions that will advance our strategic growth plan and increase shareholder value.”

To participate, callers should dial (800) 728-2056. Participants should dial in at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the call. A web presentation link is also available for the conference call.

Investors and financial analysts are invited to ask questions after the presentation is made. The presentation and a replay of the call will be available on Sparton’s Web site: http://www.sparton.com in the “Investor Relations” section for up to two years after the conference call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Sparton Corporation has provided non-GAAP financial measures as additional information for its operating results. These measures have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from measures used by other companies. Whenever we use non-GAAP financial measures, we designate these measures, which exclude the effect of certain expenses and income, as “adjusted” and provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. The non-GAAP financial measures eliminate or add certain items of expense and income from cost of goods sold, total operating expense, other income (expense) and provision for (benefit from) income taxes. Management believes that this presentation is helpful to investors in evaluating the current operational and financial performance of our business and facilitates comparisons to historical results of operations. Management discloses this information along with a reconciliation of the comparable GAAP amounts to provide access to the detail and nature of adjustments made to GAAP financial results. While some of these excluded items have been periodically reported in our statements of operations, including significant restructuring and impairment charges, certain success based acquisition finder’s fees and functional reorganization costs as well as certain gains on sales of assets, their occurrence in future periods depends on future business and economic factors, among other evaluation criteria, and the occurrence of such events and factors may frequently be beyond the control of management.

We exclude restructuring/impairment charges, success based acquisition finder’s fees, certain functional reorganization costs, gross profit effects of capitalized profit in inventory from acquisitions, accelerated recognition of debt financing costs due to refinancing, the related tax effect of these items and unusual discrete tax benefits or expense because we believe that they are not related directly to the underlying performance of our fundamental business operations. We exclude these measures when reviewing financial results and for business planning. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these transactions may limit the comparability of our fundamental operations with prior and future periods.

Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization as adjusted for restructuring/impairment charges, success based acquisition finder’s fees, certain functional reorganization costs, gross profit effects of capitalized profit in inventory from acquisitions and accelerated recognition of debt financing costs due to refinancing. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by financial analysts and others in the industries in which the Company operates and, thus, provides useful information to investors. The Company does not intend, nor should the reader consider, Adjusted EBITDA an alternative to operating income, net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other items calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable with Adjusted EBITDA as defined by other companies. Accordingly, the measurement has limitations depending on its use.
