The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LGL) (the “Company”), announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
Total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were approximately $7,398,000, an increase of 3.1% compared to revenues of $7,174,000 for the comparable period in 2012. The Company reported a net loss of ($83,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with a net loss of ($593,000) for the same period in 2012. Loss per share was ($0.03) for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with loss per share of ($0.23) for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Stock-based compensation expense was $110,000, or $0.04 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $89,000, or $0.03 per share, for the same period in 2012.
Gross margins for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, were 32.5%, compared to 22.3% for the comparable period in 2012. The increase in gross margin is due to a more favorable product mix, margin improvement initiatives and a 3.1% increase in revenues from the comparable period in 2012.
Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2013, was $9,324,000, or $3.59 per share, and cash-adjusted working capital, which is comprised of accounts receivable plus inventory less trade accounts payable, increased to $8,202,000, or $3.16 per share, at March 31, 2013.
The Company’s order backlog was $8,357,000 at March 31, 2013, which was a 4.0% decrease compared to $8,703,000 at December 31, 2012.
The increase in revenues for the first quarter is due to a modest increase in demand from existing customers for existing products primarily in our Aerospace and Defense (“Aero/Defense”), and Internet Communications Technology (“ICT”) market segments. Loss per share improvement can be attributed to a 10.2 percentage point increase in gross margin and the 3.1% increase in revenues for the first three months of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012.
Greg Anderson, LGL’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The improvement in our Q1 results compared to Q1 of last year reflects the work we have done to improve operating efficiencies, as we are continuing to make R&D investments in future growth areas within our target markets. However, the environment remains challenging, with notable price pressure, the lingering effects of uncertainty in U.S. government spending and cautious infrastructure spending patterns.”
