FREMONT, Calif., April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Power Corporation (NYSE MKT:DPW) announced today that it is targeting an 80-120% increase in revenue from 2016 in 2017. Top-line revenue will be driven by three key components:
- Organic growth;
- New customers; and
- An aggressive acquisition strategy.
The Company plans to leverage its targeted acquisitions by consolidating and streamlining new operations with our existing operations to provide both a greater production capacity and manufacturing productivity. These efforts will build upon the benefits derived from the reinvestment program recently instituted for current operations.
The Company stated this latest update is motivated by questions and inquiries from investors and others regarding the various 8K reports and press releases issued during the last two quarters. The Company reserves its right not to issue further investor guidance for 2017.
With the changes in corporate leadership and control since September 2016, the Company has embarked on a path to resolve its equity requirements from the NYSE MKT by raising new capital from both existing and new investors. These same equity efforts will fuel the 2017 acquisition growth strategy that will continue into 2018. The Company’s acquisition growth strategy encompasses several elements including investing for the long-term that enables the Company to leverage acquisition targets and other opportunities as they arise over time and will provide dramatic growth in gross revenue on a consolidated basis.
Amos Kohn, President and CEO of Digital Power, comments: “The same strategy is focused on the acquisition of leading suppliers of advanced products to the defense and aerospace industries as well as those in the sectors of medical, industrial and telecom. The strategy seeks undervalued businesses that can provide synergies in expanding customer base, additional customer ordering and in production.”
On March 14, 2017, the Company announced the award of a 3-year, $50 million purchase order by MTIX Ltd., headquartered in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, U.K., to manufacture, install and service textile treatment systems that utilize proprietary MTIX Multiplexed Laser Surface Enhancement (MLSE™) system. This milestone demonstrates the ability of the Company to expand its product and service catalog while leveraging its manufacturing capacity and expertise. The Company has embarked on its acquisition growth strategy to support new customers and product contracts such as MTIX.
The Company expects to file its 10K report for 2016 by the close of business on April 7, 2017.
