Giga-tronics Reports First Quarter FY 2016 Results

SAN RAMON, Calif., July 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (Nasdaq:GIGA) reported today net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 of $4.4 million, a 2% decrease as compared to $4.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  The decrease in quarterly net sales was primarily due to the winding down of a $6.2 million nonrecurring YIG engineering (NRE) order. An associated $10.0 million multi-year YIG production order is scheduled to start shipping in the summer of 2016.

Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $629,000 or $0.10 per fully diluted common share. This compares to a net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 of $443,000, or $0.09 per fully diluted common share. A significant portion of the increased first quarter fiscal 2016 loss was attributable to an additional $257,000 of non-cash stock based compensation which is recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses.   

Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $189,000, or $0.03 per fully diluted common share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 of $142,000, or $0.03 per fully diluted common share. Non-GAAP net 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).

Mr. John Regazzi, the Company's CEO stated, "After several years in product development, the Advanced Signal Generator has reached a milestone with our manufacturing team building the released versions. This has enabled our sales team to book new orders totaling $522,000 in the first fiscal quarter for shipment beginning in our second quarter. Sales of this product are anticipated to improve our product gross margins in the quarters ahead." 

Giga-tronics will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the first quarter results.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning operating results, future orders, sales of new products, long term growth, shipments, and customer acceptance of new products. Actual results may differ significantly due to risks and uncertainties, such as: delays in customer orders for the new Advanced Signal Generation System and our ability to manufacture it, receipt or timing of future orders, cancellations or deferrals of existing or future orders, our need for additional financing, possible 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 28, 2015 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 loss and non-GAAP loss per common share, differ from net loss and loss per common share determined in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States). Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP loss per common share for the quarter ended June 27, 2015 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. 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 in the financial information appearing 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 to evaluate and manage its internal business and to 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.
