SYPRIS REPORTS FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue Increases Sequentially on Improved Industrial Sales

Sypris Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq/NM: SYPR) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Revenue for the Company increased 16% sequentially to $78.4 million, up from $67.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

  • Revenue for the Industrial Group increased 28% sequentially to $71.1 million, up from $55.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

  • Gross profit for the Industrial Group increased 45% to $8.1 million, up from $5.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

  • Revenue and gross profit for the Electronics Group declined sequentially to $7.3 million and breakeven, respectively, reflecting the impact of sequestration and other Defense related spending delays.

  • In conjunction with the decline in quarterly revenue, the Electronics Group recorded a non-cash charge of $6.9 million, or $0.36 per share, to recognize an impairment of goodwill.

The Company reported revenue of $78.4 million for the first quarter compared to $67.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $96.5 million for the first quarter of last year. Additionally, the Company reported a net loss of $6.5 million, or $0.34 per share, as compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.05 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012 and compared to net income of $5.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the prior year comparable period. The results for the first quarter of 2013 included a $6.9 million, or $0.36 per share, non-cash impairment of goodwill.

"Our Industrial Group responded well to the rebound in demand from our commercial vehicle customers," said Jeffrey T. Gill, president and chief executive officer. "We now expect the commercial vehicle market to continue to recover during the course of 2013, as OEMs focus on the introduction of the new model year vehicles and engine technologies that offer far greater fuel efficiency than previous models. In addition, with an estimated 70% of the vehicles on the road today being in excess of eight years of age, the replacement cycle is expected to support current levels of demand for an extended period of time."

"Our Aerospace and Defense business continues to be affected by budgetary and funding uncertainties within the U.S. Department of Defense that are not expected to be eliminated in the near term. For the longer term, we are continuing to pursue strategic investments in new products and programs to further improve the growth and profitability of our business portfolio, with a specific emphasis on trusted solutions for identity management, cryptographic key distribution and cyber analytics."

The consolidated loss from continuing operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 included a gain of $1.7 million on the sale of idle assets and a foreign currency related loss of $0.6 million, while income from continuing operations for the first quarter of the prior year included a gain of $2.6 million on the sale of idle assets and a foreign currency related loss of $0.6 million.

The Industrial Group

Revenue for our Industrial Group was $71.1 million in the first quarter compared to $55.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $82.5 million for the first quarter of last year. Gross profit for the quarter was $8.1 million, or 11.4% of revenue, compared to $5.6 million, or 10.1% of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $9.9 million, or 12.0% of revenue for the first quarter of 2012.

The Electronics Group

Revenue for our Electronics Group was $7.3 million in the first quarter compared to $12.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $13.9 million in the first quarter of last year, reflecting a number of factors including budgetary and funding uncertainties within the U.S. Department of Defense. Gross profit for the quarter was breakeven, compared to a profit of $3.1 million, or 25.6% of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $2.6 million, or 18.6% of revenue for the same period in 2012, primarily reflecting the lower sales volume and change in product mix.

Outlook

Mr. Gill added, "We will continue to concentrate on the daily execution of our business. We expect recent investments in production cells and automation by our Industrial Group to contribute to further margin expansion going forward once volumes return to full replacement levels later this year. Our Electronics Group will continue to face near-term revenue challenges that we expect to be ongoing until the outlook for defense spending is clarified and authorized."
