RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: OPXS), a leading manufacturer of optical sighting systems and assemblies primarily for Department of Defense applications, reported operating results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2013.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $3.8 million as compared to revenues during the same period one year ago of $3.9 million, a decrease of $0.1 million or 2.6%. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to completion of the M137 Howitzer program in fiscal year 2012 of $(0.7) million, offset by increases in Sighting Systems of $0.2 million and other products of $0.4 million in the current fiscal year period. Gross margin during the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $0.66 million or 17.4% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $0.64 million, or 16.4% for the three months ended April 1, 2012. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of $(0.11) million, as compared to an income of $0.14 million for the three months ended April 1, 2012, a decrease of $(0.25) million. The primary reason for the decreased income relates to increased general and administrative costs in the current year of $(0.15) million and the waiver of dividends in arrears on preferred stock of $0.2 million in the prior year.

Revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2013 were $7.6 million as compared to revenues during the same period one year ago of $8.1 million, a decrease of ($0.5) million or (6.2%). The decline in revenue is primarily due to completion of the M137 Howitzer program in FY2012 of $(1.7) million offset by increases in the Periscopes line of $0.4 million, Sighting Systems of $0.2 million and other products of $0.6 million in the last six months over the prior year period. The gross margin during the six months ended March 31, 2013 was $1.35 million or 17.8% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $1.34 million or 16.5% for the six months ended April 1, 2012. The increase in gross margin percentage was primarily due to a shift in product mix toward more profitable programs and completion of the M137 Howitzer program in 2012. During the six months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of $(0.07) million, as compared to $(0.01) million for the six months ended April 3, 2011, an increased loss of $(0.06) million. The primary reason for the decreased loss relates to the increased general and administrative costs in the current period of $(0.1) million partially offset by changes in deferred tax benefits of $0.15 million and changes in accrued dividends on preferred stock of $(0.11) million related to the waiver executed in February 2012.

Backlog as of March 31, 2013 was $16.5 million as compared to a backlog of $18.0 million as of April 1, 2012, a decrease of 1.5 million or 8.3%. In the first two fiscal quarters of 2013, Optex Systems Holdings received $5.1 million in new orders consisting of a $3.8 million of periscopes and $1.3 million in other product lines. As of March 31, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents of $1.1 million. During the period from October 1, 2012 through March 31, 2013, we decreased cash and cash equivalents by $(0.6) million primarily attributable to increased purchases and inventory and increased accounts receivable in support of new periscope orders and ramp up of the M36 DDAN contract production schedule. The increased inventory was partially offset by advances against the credit facility and receipts against customer deposits.

"During this period of reduced defense spending, the reliance on our core competencies of producing high quality, high performance sighting systems is a critical essential in winning contract awards," stated Optex CEO Danny Schoening. "We continue to aggressively pursue opportunities in foreign sales while maintaining strong relationships with the U.S. government purchasing agencies as well as Prime Contractors. The Company continues to invest in new technology and research into providing better solutions as defense organizations upgrade and modernize existing vehicles."
