Giga-tronics Reports Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter And Six Months Results

DUBLIN, Calif., Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (OTCQB: GIGA) (the “Company”) reported results for the second quarter and six months ended September 26, 2020.

Revenue for the second fiscal quarter was $2.7 million compared to $3.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2020.   Microsource filter sales in the second quarter decreased to $1.9 million from $2.7 million in the second quarter last year. The decrease in Microsource filter revenues was related to the delayed receipt of certain orders resulting in lower revenue recognition associated with such orders, which also reduced gross margin due to lower overhead absorption. Radar/EW test sales during the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $820,000 versus $253,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the second quarter was ($477,000), or $(0.18) per share, compared to net income of $44,000, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, for the same period last year. EBITDA for the quarter was ($309,000) compared to $295,000 for the same quarter in fiscal 2020.

Revenue for the six-month period ended September 26, 2020 was $6.2 million compared to $6.5 million for the six-month period ended September 28, 2019. Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the six-month period was ($405,000), or $(0.15) per fully diluted share, compared to net income of $59,000, or $0.04 per fully diluted share, for the same period last year. EBITDA for the six-month period was ($57,000) in fiscal 2021 compared to $600,000 in the same period in fiscal 2020.

John Regazzi, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said, “Second quarter revenues came in below our expectations, largely due to the delayed receipt of certain orders. We remain on track for a strong year, and anticipate increased revenues at both our Microsource filter and Radar/EW testing divisions in the second half of fiscal 2021.”

Lutz Henckels, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, “As previously announced, we received a $4.96 million order from Boeing for custom microwave filters for F-15 aircraft. This order reflects our position as a sole source provider of these critical components and the microwave filters business continues to be a dependable and profitable business that complements our growing Radar/EW testing business.”

Mr. Henckels continued, “The Radar/EW segment of our business continues to be a very attractive long term opportunity for us. We expect the combined Microwave Filter business and Radar/EW business to grow further in fiscal 2021 with improved gross margins, as an increasing percentage of revenue is expected to be derived from the more profitable Radar/EW testing business.”
