Omnitek Engineering Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

VISTA, Calif., Aug. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering Corporation (OTCBB:OMTK) today reported results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013, reflecting the impact of the company's relocation to a larger facility and delays in accepting and shipping orders in cooperation with customers to accommodate the anticipated disruption in operations during the quarter.

Net revenues for the second quarter were $197,210 compared with $380,531 a year earlier, as anticipated due to factors noted above. For the same period, the company reported a net loss of $369,393, or $0.02 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, a year earlier -- reflecting lower general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2013 compared with a year ago, offset by reduced sales due to the relocation.

Net revenues for the six-month period were $546,539 compared with $686,900 a year ago. For the same period, the company reported a net loss of $619,814, or $0.03 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share, a year earlier.

Gross margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $53,364 compared with $231,082 a year ago. Gross margin for the quarter as a percentage of sales was 27 percent compared with 61 percent in the same period a year ago, primarily reflecting sales volume and product mix.

Gross margin for the six-months ended June 30, 2013 was $198,607 compared with $336,839 a year earlier. Gross margin for the six-month period as a percentage of sales was 36 percent compared with 49 percent in the same period a year ago, primarily reflecting sales volume and product mix.

"Notwithstanding the impact of the aforementioned items impacting the quarter and six-month period, sales for the second half are expected to regain momentum. Our optimism is supported by the ongoing build-out of our diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion network serving domestic trucking fleet operators in North America and the appealing value-proposition of utilizing natural gas, supported by a vastly improving regulatory environment," said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corporation.

The company expects to obtain EPA and CARB approval for additional diesel engine models to address the anticipated increasing demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models to complement its certification of the widely operated line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines.

Funk added that the company's expansion into international markets continues, with a particular focus on markets in South America, Europe, Mexico and China.

He emphasized that the cost for a diesel truck engine conversion can be recouped within a one-to-two year period, and even earlier if performed during a regularly scheduled engine overhaul.

Last month, Omnitek Engineering announced it was selected by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency for a pilot project to demonstrate its diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion technology for drayage trucks serving the Port of Seattle, Washington, in support of the Port's Clean Truck Program, with an estimated more than 2,000 vehicles targeted for conversion. The company anticipates additional opportunities to convert trucks at other ports throughout the country.
