Dynasil Corporation of America Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Companies mentioned in this article: Dynasil Corporation of America

WATERTOWN, Mass., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a developer and manufacturer of optical detection and analysis technology and components for the homeland security, medical and industrial markets, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2014 second quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Dynasil reported net income attributable to common stockholders for the quarter of $272,000 or $0.02 per share, compared with a net loss of ($7,242,000), or ($0.49) per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2014 is $1,729,000, or $0.11 per share, as compared to a net loss of ($7,621,000), or ($0.52) per share, for the comparable period in 2013.

"I am pleased to report that Dynasil had a second consecutive quarter of profitability and, as previously reported, we recently closed on a new revolving line of credit with Middlesex Savings Bank and have regained compliance with the terms of our subordinated loan from Massachusetts Capital Resource Company," said Dynasil Chairman and Interim CEO Peter Sulick. "Additionally, with the improved operational performance within our Optics Group and improvements in our Contract Research profitability we have largely replaced the revenue lost as a result of the disposition of our Instruments segment."

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased slightly to $10.4 million, from $10.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. In this quarter, the Optics segment's revenues increased approximately $900,000, or 21.8% over the same period in the prior year. This increase was offset by a $1.0 million decrease in revenues from the now divested Instruments segment which was sold during the first quarter of 2014.

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $3.9 million, a decrease of $8.1 million compared to the same period in 2013. This decrease brings our operating expenses more in line with our traditional experience, following a $6.8 million impairment charge in the quarter ended March 31, 2013 to write-down the goodwill and long-lived assets of the Company's Instruments segment. Additionally, the now disposed lead paint detection and medical products businesses in the Instruments segment, incurred substantial development costs associated with product refreshes during the second quarter of 2013.

As a result, operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, increased to approximately $500,000 from a loss of ($7.2) million in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

On May 1, 2014, the Company entered into a three year revolving line of credit arrangement with Middlesex Savings Bank. Upon the closing of the loan, the Company repaid the approximately $1.8 million owed Santander Bank, N.A. and the $600,000 of accrued interest due Massachusetts Capital Resource Company, the subordinated lender. As a result, the Company is no longer in default of any of its loan obligations and has reclassified the subordinated debt to a long term liability based on its terms.

"Now that we have been successful in regaining compliance with our bank covenants, the Company can pursue growth opportunities in the optics market, as well as continuing to develop cutting-edge technologies within our Contract Research segment," stated Mr. Sulick. "We are also happy to report that our joint venture with Mayo Clinic, Xcede Technologies, has raised an additional $250,000 from note holders to further fund it research efforts in tissue sealant technology."

The Company has no conference calls scheduled at this time.
