FREMONT, Calif., May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Power Corporation (NYSE MKT:DPW) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.
Digital Power’s revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 were $1,713,000, a decrease of 10% from revenues of $1,896,000 for the same quarter ended March 31, 2015, resulting mainly from a decreased level of power supply shipments in the U.S. market. Net loss for the quarter ended on March 31, 2016 was $193,000, comparable to the $204,000 net loss recorded for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 which resulted mainly from the decline in revenues. Gross margin in the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 was 36.2%, slightly lower than the 37.6% reported in the first quarter ended March 31, 2015 mainly due to the product mix. Operating expenses were $820,000 a decrease of 12% from the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Reflecting lower general and administrative expenses and engineering costs.
Commenting on the results, President and CEO, Amos Kohn, stated: “For the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, our net loss of $193,000 included $44,000 of stock option expenses. Excluding these non-cash related expenses, our non-GAAP net loss was $149,000 for the first quarter of 2016. For the first quarter ended March 31, 2015, our net loss was $204,000 and excluding stock option expenses of $47,000, intellectual property amortization expenses of $24,000 and $50,000 for impairment of our Telkoor investment our non-GAAP net loss was $83,000. Although we continue to realize stronger defense related shipments from our European operations in the current fiscal quarter as compared to the comparable quarter last year, our commercial product portfolio continues to lag behind expectations in terms of orders and shipments. Our efforts to further develop our product line offerings and geographical sales coverage are still in process with the hope that improvements in our revenue realization rate will follow in future quarters.”
Mr. Kohn continued, “We continue to pursue our strategic plan of developing complete customized power solutions and enhancing our standard product portfolio with innovative, high density and efficient power supplies at ever increasing power levels. The focus on a complete solution for power applications is well received by our major telecom, medical, military and industrial customers.”
