FREMONT, Calif., April 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Power Corporation (NYSE MKT:DPW) ("Digital Power" or the "Company"), a growth company seeking to increase revenues through acquisitions and organic growth, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2016.

Digital Power’s revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016 were $7,596,000, a decrease of 2% from revenues of $7,766,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. The Company recorded an operating loss of $1,219,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to an operating loss of $1,003,000 for the comparable 2015 period. Non-GAAP operating losses were $676,000 and $711,000 for the years 2016 and 2015, respectively. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2016 was $1,122,000 compared to the loss of $1,096,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. Non-GAAP net losses were $547,000 and $694,000 for the 2016 and 2015 years, respectively. Gross margins in 2016 and 2015 were 36% and 35% respectively.

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company reported revenues of $1,993,000, a decrease of 9% from revenues of $2,304,000 in the comparable 2015 quarter. The Company recorded an operating loss of $947,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to an operating loss of $221,000 for the fourth quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating losses were $533,000 and $176,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016 and 2015, respectively. Digital Power reported a net loss of $957,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to a net loss of $225,000 for the fourth quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net losses were $511,000 and $176,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Commenting on the results, President and CEO Amos Kohn stated: “Our net loss of $1,122,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016, included $543,000 of stock options and $32,000 of discount amortization expenses. Excluding these non-cash related expenses, our net loss would have been $547,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016. While we are somewhat disappointed with the magnitude of the loss reported for the past year, it is important to note that 52% of the loss in 2016 was attributable to non-cash related expenses in addition to losses that were attributed to our sale of Telkoor Telecom shares and our investment in building for our future growth. We comply with generally accepted accounting principles that require inclusion of these expenses.

For the remainder of 2017, and as previously reported, the Company is targeting an increase in revenues as a result of anticipated organic growth, targeting new customers and implementing an aggressive acquisition strategy. This anticipated revenue increase reflects management and the Board’s aggressive growth strategy through organic growth and acquisitions that occurred as a result of a change in control completed in September 2016. In implementing this strategy, we have hired a number of additional personnel and consultants to assist in identifying, analyzing, negotiating and acquiring potential companies and we will need to raise a substantial amount of capital for acquisitions and to support our infrastructure. As a result of our growth, our anticipated net income may not match our growth in revenues and we may continue to experience losses until these acquisition may be integrated into our operations or until our cost reduction and efficiency changes can be implemented.
