The LGL Group, Inc. Reports Q1 2016 Financial Results

May 12, 2016
By Business Wire News


The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LGL) (the “Company”), announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Summary of Q1 2016 Results:

  • Revenues were $4.8 million, down 12.0% from Q1 2015
  • Net loss of ($0.1) million, or ($0.05) per share, improved 29.2% compared to Q1 2015
  • Adjusted EBITDA per share was $0.01 versus $0.03 in Q1 2015
  • Order backlog was $9.0 million, up 2.5% from Q4 2015

The Company’s newly elected Chairman of the Board and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr., stated, “Although we were disappointed by the 12% revenue decrease, we were encouraged by the $335,000 increase in our backlog over the previous quarter. Most of the decrease is a result of the continuing price compression in the frequency control commodities market rather than lost business. We view this price compression as a secular trend and have been actively transitioning our product mix, strategic focus, and marketing efforts towards more lucrative and higher margin markets. Profitability appears to be in reach, given our lower cost structure, as we gain greater traction in these markets. As we advance into our second quarter with the increase in backlog, we do expect shipments to pick up.”

Positive Cash Flows from Operations; Solid Capital Position

Net cash provided by operating activities was $0.1 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. Total cash and cash equivalents was $5.6 million, or $2.09 per share, at March 31, 2016, consistent with our cash position at December 31, 2015. Adjusted working capital (accounts receivable, net, plus inventory, net, less accounts payable) was $5.0 million as of March 31, 2016, compared to $5.2 million as of December 31, 2015, which reflects the continuing effort to manage working capital levels to operating activity.

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest income (expenses), provision (benefit) for income taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items we believe are discrete events which have a significant impact on comparable GAAP measures and could distort an evaluation of our normal operating performance. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted earnings per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
