Advanced Photonix Reports FY2013 Second Quarter Results

ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Advanced Photonix, Inc.® (NYSE MKT: API) (the "Company") today reported results for the second quarter ended September 28, 2012.

Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter Ended September 28, 2012

  • Net sales for the quarter were $5.6 million, a decrease of $2.8 million or 33% from the second quarter ended September 30, 2011. Sequentially, revenues were down 10% relative to the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

  • Gross profit margin for Q2 2013 was 35.3% of sales compared to 42.7% for the same quarter of fiscal 2012. Price pressures in our high-speed optical receiver (HSOR) product line prior to cost reduction efforts and lower volumes affected the rate and gross margin dollars.

  • Current quarter net loss was $1,287,000 or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to a quarterly loss of $254,000, or $0.01 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

  • The Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $942,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, as compared to a Non-GAAP net income of $155,000, or $.01 per diluted share, for the second quarter last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA (which is defined as GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation), was a negative $717,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 as compared to positive adjusted EBITDA of $469,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.


Operating Expenses

The Company's total operating expenses for the quarter were $3.2 million, down 17% compared to the $3.9 million reported for the second quarter last year. As a percent of revenue, total operating expenses were 58% compared to 47% for the second quarter last year.

Richard Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We continue to believe that our fiscal 2013 will have a much better second half. As with the other telecommunications suppliers we have seen weakness in network spending recently. This has caused us to be more cautious in our total year outlook. Our recent success in securing increased 100G business from one of our large OEM's for calendar year 2013 is a positive sign amid general softness we have seen from China and Europe due to challenging macro economic conditions. Our terahertz (THz) product platform is continuing to gain traction in industrial process control markets and we expect this growth to continue during the balance of the fiscal year and beyond. However due to the more challenging international macroeconomic environment, reduced U.S. military activities, and the looming U.S. fiscal cliff and their corresponding impact on our customer's expansion plans in the industrial and defense markets, we are projecting a more cautious outlook for the fiscal year. Due to these conditions we are changing revenue growth for the second half of our fiscal 2013 to a range of 15-25% higher than the first half."
