The LGL Group, Inc. Reports Q1 2017 Financial Results

ORLANDO, Fla.--()--The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LGL) (the “Company” or “LGL”), announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Summary of Q1 2017 Financial Results:

  • Revenues of $5.6 million, up 18.3% compared to Q1 2016
  • Net income of $0.04 per share compared to a net loss of ($0.05) per share in Q1 2016
  • Order backlog improved 21% to $10.9 million at March 31, 2017 from $9.0 million at March 31, 2016
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $0.12 per share, compared to $0.01 per share for Q1 2016

Commenting on the Company’s 2017 results, Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr. stated, “I’m very pleased to report our first quarter financial results. We saw growth in both revenues and income from the same prior year period. And net income, although modest, is a great start to the new year. I would also like to highlight the 21% growth in our backlog which was close to $11 million at the close of the quarter and a strong indicator of how our revenue stream should improve.”

Mr. Ferrantino continued, “It has been almost two and a half years since we implemented our strategy and I am pleased to confirm it is still in place today. Basically, that strategy is to move away from markets where there are a large number of competitors bidding unrealistic prices. Ultimately, chasing that kind of business leads to major problems one of which is the inability to invest in new product development. We have done an excellent job of moving away from these low-to-no margin products while, in parallel, developing higher margin, market-driven, highly-engineered assemblies. Having a strategy that is understandable is important. Execution of that strategy is essential. Over the last two and a half years, our team has executed with precision and that has certainly paid off as is evidenced by the continued improvement.”

In closing, Mr. Ferrantino added, “Finally, I intend to close all future correspondence to our shareholders and potential shareholders with the following statement. ‘Our future is only limited by our bandwidth which continues to broaden every year.’”

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) 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 (expense), 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.
