Giga-tronics Reports Third Quarter FY 2015 Results

Two Consecutive Quarters of Profitability

SAN RAMON, Calif., Jan. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (Nasdaq:GIGA) reported today net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 of $67,000, or $0.01 per fully diluted share, which marked a second consecutive quarter of profitability. This compares to a net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 of $718,000, or $0.14 per fully diluted share. Net loss for the nine month periods ended December 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013 were $283,000, or $0.05 per fully diluted share and $2.5 million, or $0.49 per fully diluted share, respectively. The improvements to net income/loss when comparing fiscal 2015 to fiscal 2014 were primarily due to increased revenues from two large customer orders received early in fiscal 2015, along with improved gross margins and lower operating expenses.

Net sales of $4.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 32%, compared to $3.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Net sales for the nine month period ended December 27, 2014 were $14.1 million, an increase of 36%, compared to $10.4 million for the nine month period ended December 28, 2013. The increases in net sales were primarily due to a $6.2 million YIG nonrecurring engineering (NRE) order and a $2.4 million Naval Air Warfare Center (Navy) order, both of which were received in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. The deliveries for both orders commenced in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, with deliveries for the Navy order being completed in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 while deliveries for the YIG NRE order are anticipated throughout all of fiscal 2015.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 was $239,000, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 of $651,000, or $0.13 per fully diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the nine month period ended December 27, 2014 was $361,000 or $0.04 per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss for the nine month period ended December 28, 2013 of $2.1 million or $0.41 per fully diluted share. Non-GAAP net income/loss excludes non-cash expenses associated with the derivative revaluation and discount accretion of debt and warrant agreements as well as stock-based compensation (1).

On February 12, 2014, the NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ") initiated proceedings to delist Giga-tronics from the NASDAQ Capital Market for failure to maintain the minimum required shareholders' equity. NASDAQ has granted Giga-tronics two extensions with the latest expiring on February 16, 2015. If Giga-tronics is not compliant by February 16, 2015, arrangements are being made to be traded on the OTCQB marketplace on or about the same day or shortly thereafter.

Mr. John Regazzi, the Company's CEO stated, "I'm very pleased with two consecutive quarters of profitability, and I want to congratulate all our employees for accomplishing this milestone."

Mr. Regazzi concluded, "The worldwide product tour for our new Advanced Signal Generation System is continuing and we are seeing a great deal of excitement from the market in the US and Europe. We deployed additional systems at two sites this quarter building strong customer confidence in the product as they approach their final acceptance."

Giga-tronics will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the third quarter results. To participate in the call, dial (888) 424-8151 or (847) 585-4422, and enter PIN Code 9178731#. The call will also be broadcast over the internet at www.gigatronics.com under "Investor Relations." The conference call discussion reflects management's views as of January 26, 2015.

Giga-tronics is a publicly held company, traded on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "GIGA" (2). Giga-tronics produces instruments, subsystems and sophisticated microwave components that have broad applications in defense electronics, aeronautics and wireless telecommunications.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning operating results, future orders, sales of new products, long term growth, potential warranty liabilities, and shipments. Actual results may differ significantly due to risks and uncertainties, such as: delays in customer orders for the new Advanced Signal Generation System, receipt or timing of future orders, cancellations or deferrals, our ability to continue as a going concern, our need for additional financing, delisting from trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market and moving to the OTCQB marketplace; the volatility in the market price of our common stock; and general market conditions. For further discussion, see Giga-tronics' most recent annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 29, 2014, Part I, under the heading "Risk Factors" and Part II, under the heading "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Results of Operations".

(1) Non-GAAP net income/loss and non-GAAP earnings/loss per share, differ from net income/loss and earnings/loss per share determined in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States). Non-GAAP net income/loss and non-GAAP earnings/loss per share for the quarter ended December 27, 2014 exclude the effects of the revaluation of the derivative liability as well as the accretion of the discounts on debt and warrant notes entered into in March and June of 2014. These numbers also exclude the impact of Stock Based Compensation which is also excluded from non-GAAP operating margin, operating expenses and operating income/loss. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A schedule reconciling non-GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release. Giga-tronics utilizes both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures to assess what it believes to be its core operating performance and to evaluate and manage its internal business and assist in making financial operating decisions. Giga-tronics believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures, together with GAAP measures, provides investors with an alternative presentation useful to investors' understanding of Giga-tronics' core operating results and trends. Additionally, Giga-tronics believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures, together with GAAP measures, provides investors with an additional dimension of comparability to similar companies. However, investors should be aware that non-GAAP financial measures utilized by other companies are not likely to be comparable in most cases to the non-GAAP financial measures used by Giga-tronics.

(2) NASDAQ has initiated proceedings that could result in de-listing of the Company' securities from NASDAQ on or about February 16, 2015. The Company has appealed NASDAQ's determination but no assurance can be given that this will succeed. See the Company's recent report on Form 8-K filed November 18, 2014.
