Advanced Photonix Reports 10% First Quarter Revenue Growth and Positive EBITDA

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 26 years Advanced Photonix (NYSE MKT: API) (the Company, we, us or our),  has been a leading supplier of opto-electronic sensors, devices and instrumentation used by the Test and Measurement, Process Control, Medical, Telecommunication and Homeland Security markets,  today reported revenue growth and positive EBITDA for the first fiscal quarter of 2015.

Advanced Photonix, Inc.

Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended June 27, 2014

  • Net sales for the quarter were $7.7 million, an increase of $585,000 or 8% from the first quarter ended June 28, 2013. Sequentially, revenues were up 10% relative to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Gross profit margin for Q1 2015 was 38% of sales compared to 41% for the first quarter ended June 28, 2013. The decrease in gross profit percent was due to the completion of certain Terahertz development contracts in fiscal 2014, which have not yet been fully replaced.
  • Current quarter GAAP net loss was $268,000 or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared to a quarterly net loss of $925,000, or $0.03 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 28, 2013 and a net quarterly loss of $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • The Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $3,000 or $.00 per diluted share, as compared to a Non-GAAP loss of $403,000, or $.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (which is defined as GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation), was a positive $268,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 as compared to negative adjusted EBITDA of $68,000 for the quarter ended June 28, 2013 and the negative adjusted EBITDA of $593,000 in the fourth quarter of 2014, a $861,000 sequential improvement.

Operating Expenses
The Company's total operating expenses for the quarter were $3.1 million, down approximately $393,000 from the prior year quarter due primarily to cost reduction measures. Total operating expenses were 40% of sales compared to 49% for the first quarter last year.

Balance Sheet
The Company finished the quarter with $1.4 million in cash compared to $120,000 as of March 31, 2014 given the receipt in June 2014 of $2.9 million in net proceeds from a firm underwritten placement of 6.2 million shares by B Riley and Co. In addition to the cash on hand, the Company had access to approximately $3.2 million in additional funds available on the Company's line of credit at quarter end. Net working capital as of June 27, 2014 was $4.6 million.  

Richard Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are excited to see the top line growing again and a return to positive EBITDA. Our high-speed optical receiver (HSOR) product platform achieved sales of $3.7 million in the quarter as customers demanded a record volume of 100G optical receivers. Investments made in the past several years in our HSOR product platform are driving profitable growth this fiscal year and investments made in our Terahertz product platform are beginning to show traction in the industrial process control and quality markets. We reiterate our guidance to grow our fiscal year 2015 revenues by more than 20% from last year given the ramp we are seeing in our three primary markets; Test and Measurement, Telecommunications and Military/Aerospace."
