Herley Reports Earnings for First Quarter of Fiscal 2010 — Press Release

Herley Reports Earnings for First Quarter of Fiscal 2010

LANCASTER, Pa., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Herley Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:HRLY) today reported financial results for its First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2010.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 were $47.7 million compared to $35.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2009. Income from continuing operations was $3.6 million, or $.26 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $.9 million, or $(.07) per diluted share, last year. The loss from discontinued operations last year of $.5 million, or $(.03) per diluted share, resulted from the sale of the ICI business in November 2008. Net income for the first quarter was $3.6 million, or $.26 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $(.10) per diluted share, last year.

The Company’s EBITDA for the first quarter of 2010 was $6.9 million compared to $1.1 million last year. The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2010 was $7.4 million compared to $1.7 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income plus the impact of foreign exchange transactions, excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and litigation costs.

The Company reported a revenue increase of $12.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to last year. The 35% increase was primarily related to increased deliveries under major production programs. In addition, an increase of approximately $2.0 million in sales was due to the inclusion of three months of Eyal’s revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to the inclusion of two months of its revenues for the comparable prior quarter. Gross profit in the quarter was $13.3 million (27.9% gross profit margin) compared to $6.6 million (18.7% gross profit margin) last year, an increase of $6.7 million. The increase in gross profit and gross profit margin during fiscal 2010 was principally a result of leveraging our fixed costs on the sales increase as well as anticipated improvements in margins related to manufacturing efficiencies and a favorable program mix.

Selling and administrative (“S&A”) expenses for the first quarter were $7.7 million, or 16.1% of sales, compared to $7.3 million, or 20.7% of sales, last year. The $.4 million increase in S&A expenses was primarily attributable to an increase of approximately $.9 million in commissions and related sales expenses associated with the increase in sales and approximately $.2 million due to the inclusion of a full quarter of Eyal’s expenses since its acquisition in last year’s first quarter, partially offset by approximately $.7 million related to cost reductions, including payroll-related expenses.

The Company reported operating income during the first quarter of fiscal 2010 of $5.1 million compared to an operating loss of $.7 million last year. The prior-year quarter included a gain on the sale of certain assets of approximately $.6 million.

At November 1, 2009, the Company’s balance sheet is strong, with total cash and cash equivalents of $13.8 million, working capital of $90.8 million and long-term debt, exclusive of settlement commitments, of $20.2 million. Capital expenditures were $1.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to $2.0 million last year.

Richard F. Poirier, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, “We are very pleased by the results of this quarter. We maintain a strong backlog, and are continuing to realize the benefits of transitioning from development to full production on major programs. We are also looking to expand into new programs, and continue to concentrate on strengthening relationships with our customers.”
