The LGL Group, Inc. Reports Q3 2017 Financial Results

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE American: LGL) (the “Company” or “LGL”), announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Summary of Q3 2017 Financial Results:

  • Revenue of $5.3 million, up 2.6% compared to Q3 2016
  • Net income of $0.01 per share, consistent with Q3 2016
  • Order backlog declined 10.0% to $9.9 million, compared to $11.0 million at September 30, 2016
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $0.06 per share, consistent with Q3 2016

Commenting on the Company’s Q3 2017 results, Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr. said, “Although revenue was higher than the same period last year, had it not been for Hurricane Irma revenue would’ve been even higher. Our Orlando facility was in the flight path of the storm. Once we knew Irma was hitting the central Florida area on Saturday we put in place our inclement weather protocol. On Friday we shut down all manufacturing operations and powered down most of our equipment so that in the event of a power failure a surge would not damage any of our dynamic test equipment. We also took precaution to protect all our work in process inventory by storing everything in a hermetic container minimizing exposure to humidity. Fortunately, that process paid off and although we were without power for effectively four days, there was no damage to our products or equipment. When the storm ended and the power was restored, by the following Wednesday our team returned to the facility, cleaned up some minor water damage, brought in dryers and operations were started on Thursday. So I am happy to report we came through the storm with no structural damage to the building, no loss of materials or equipment and most importantly all of our Florida employees returned to work safe and sound.

“As for new orders, we effectively were offline for four business days but we believe we did not experience any significant loss of business as a result of the storm. The major issue was related to the push out from August to what now appears to be November, of a three year contract. Not a loss of business to a competitor but a period event that moved the transaction out of the third period into the fourth. I believe that during the fourth and final quarter of 2017 we will return to normal, make up for the third quarter shortfall and by the New Year, Irma will be a distant memory.”

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.
