Digital Power Corporation Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Power Corporation (NYSE MKT:DPW) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Digital Power’s revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 were $2,064,000, a slight decrease of 4% from revenues of $2,151,000 for the same quarter ended June 30, 2015, resulting mainly from a decreased level in revenue from military products manufactured by the European operations of DPL offset by an increase in revenue from commercial products in North America. Net income for the quarter ended on June 30, 2016 was $66,000, compared to the $271,000 net loss recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The improvement in net income (loss) was mainly attributable to the improved sales in North America and a reduction in operation expenses. Gross margin in the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 was 36.5%, slightly lower than the 37.2% reported in the second quarter ended June 30, 2015, mainly due to the decrease in profitability of our commercial products sold by our U.S operations. Operating expenses were $743,000, a decrease of 22% from the quarter ended June 30, 2015, reflecting lower general and administrative expenses and engineering costs.

Commenting on the results, President and CEO, Amos Kohn, stated: “We are very pleased to present significant improvements in both sales and profitability compared to the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 and other recent quarters. Our revenue increased by $438,000 and our profitability increased by $259,000 compared to the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. For the second quarter ended June 30, 2016, our net income of $66,000 included $43,000 of stock option expenses. Excluding this non-cash related expense, our non-GAAP net income was $109,000 for the second quarter of 2016. For the second quarter ended June 30, 2015, our net loss was $271,000, and excluding stock option expenses of $90,000, intellectual property amortization expenses of $21,000 and $56,000 for impairment of our Telkoor investment, our non-GAAP net loss was $104,000. We are excited that with our strategy to enhance our product offering, develop new products and expand our sales in the global market, and we believe that we will continue to improve our revenue realization rate and profitability in future quarters.”

Mr. Kohn continued, “We continue to pursue our strategic plan of developing complete customized power solutions and to enhance 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.”
