EBITDA-8-22

Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International Corp. commented, “Based on delivery schedules, we expected second quarter results to be our weakest of 2022. In addition, some of our scheduled deliveries were delayed to the third and subsequent quarters and certain one-time unanticipated expenses were incurred by our newly acquired Simulator Product Solutions LLC (“SPS”) subsidiary. Also, gross margins from SPS were weaker than expected due to higher labor costs during the quarter. Our net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, was $54,000 compared to $2,361,000 for the prior comparable period. Included in our current six month period results is the adverse effect of both $98,000 of one-time costs related to the acquisition of SPS and a $168,000 charge to SPS’ cost of sales due to the increase recorded to its work-in-process and finished goods acquired beginning inventory under Fair Value Accounting (“FVA”). Included in our prior year results is $1,618,000 representing the forgiveness of our loan, including accrued interest under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). Exclusive of the one-time acquisition costs and the charge to cost of sales under FVA and the PPP loan forgiveness, our net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $320,000 ($0.09 per diluted share) compared to $743,000 ($0.21 per diluted share) in the comparable period of the prior year. EBITDA, as adjusted, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, exclusive of the one-time acquisition costs and charge to cost of sales under FVA, was $435,000 ($0.13 per diluted share).”

Mr. Binder added, “Our sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022, increased to $12,644,000 compared to $11,194,000 from the prior comparable period. This increase in sales was primarily attributable to sales from SPS, which is part of our Orbit Electronics Group (“OEG”). Our sales for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were $5,801,000, which was approximately equal to sales of $5,801,000 from the prior comparable period despite the inclusion of sales from SPS in the current three month period. Both periods were adversely affected by lower sales recorded by both our OEG (exclusive of SPS) and our Orbit Power Group (“OPG”).”

Mr. Binder further added, “Our gross margin for the six months ended June 30, 2022, exclusive of adjustments to SPS’ work in process and finished goods under FVA, decreased slightly to 34.7% compared to 34.8% in the prior comparable period. Notwithstanding this slight decrease in gross margin during the first half of 2022, our OEG reported increased gross margin attributable to certain engineering deliverables (which had some associated costs that were expensed in prior periods), as well as a more profitable product mix. Our gross margin at our OPG decreased from the prior comparable period due to a decrease in sales. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter increased from the prior year comparable period, primarily due to the addition of expenses from SPS and higher corporate costs. Selling expenses at SPS included the hiring during the second quarter of two highly experienced sales personnel who are expected to make a material impact to bookings beginning in the fourth quarter of 2022 and beyond. Exclusive of SPS and corporate costs, selling, general and administrative expenses increased due to higher selling expenses and wage inflation.”

Mr. Binder continued, “Backlog at June 30, 2022, was approximately $16,300,000 compared to approximately $17,800,000 at December 31, 2021, both inclusive of the backlog of SPS. The reduction in backlog was due to a lower backlog at our OEG. Backlog at June 30, 2022 for our OPG did not materially change from year-end. The reduction in OEG backlog was expected as some follow-on orders were pushed back by our customers into the second half of 2022, primarily due to funding delays from the Department of Defense (“DoD”). These funding delays were principally the result of work restrictions related to the pandemic and a shifting of prioritization of certain contract awards from the DoD. Although timing is an uncertainty, we expect these purchase orders to eventually be received.”

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, “At June 30, 2022, our cash and cash equivalents aggregated approximately $4.7 million and our financial condition remains solid as evidenced by our 4.2 to 1 current ratio. In addition, we are in the process of increasing the amount available under our line of credit with our primary lender to $6,000,000 from $4,000,000, which should be completed during the current quarter. Our book value per share at June 30, 2022 was $5.86 which compares to $6.00 at March 31, 2022 and $5.88 at December 31, 2021. (Note: book value per share does not include any additional value for our remaining reserved deferred tax asset). To offset future federal and state taxes resulting from profits, we have approximately $6.4 million and $0.5 million in available federal and New York State net operating loss carryforwards, respectively.”

Mr. Binder concluded, “Because our revenues are tied to delivery schedules specified in our contracts, it is often difficult to judge our performance on a quarterly basis. We completed a solid year of operating results in 2021 due to improved gross margins, and as a result of tight controls on our overall operating costs. We followed a very firm first quarter of operating results with weaker than expected second quarter results, as previously noted, and we remain confident in the future of our newly acquired SPS operation. During the second quarter of 2021, based on our improved outlook for our business regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and stability of our financial condition, our Board of Directors authorized the Company to recommence our share repurchase program and in March 2022, our Board of Directors authorized the Company to recommence our quarterly dividend program. Through August 10, 2022, we have purchased approximately 96,247 shares under the program. We remain confident in the operating performance of our legacy businesses as we move through 2022, although the timing of contract awards and supply chain issues remain a concern and could impact the timing of deliveries. Our operating team continues to work on potential solutions whenever receipt of components is delayed.”
