RF Industries Reports Record Second Quarter Revenues of $9.2 Million; Net Income up 96% with Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.14

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RF Industries, Ltd. (Nasdaq: RFIL) announced results for the second quarter and six months ended April 30, 2013.


  • Record second quarter revenues increased 37% to $9.2 million; Net income increased 96% to $1.2 million or $0.14 per diluted share
  • Growth driven by customized connectivity solutions for wireless infrastructure
  • Balance sheet remains robust with $8.5 million in cash and no debt

Howard Hill, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to report record revenue. Our strength lies in our ability to design and manufacture complex cable assembly products that meet or surpass the connectivity needs of our end users and, as a result, we've seen continued strong demand for our offerings. In particular, we have been focused on growing our position as a leading provider of full service, custom interconnect solutions to the wireless infrastructure industry. During the quarter, we saw the positive impact of this long term strategy with particularly strong sales from our Cables Unlimited division, which realized continued marketplace acceptance of its OptiFlex™ Hybrid Custom Fiber Optic and DC Power Cabling solution for wireless towers."

For the quarter ended April 30, 2013, the Company reported record second quarter net sales of $9.2 million, an increase of 37%, compared to $6.7 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company reported operating income of $1.6 million, an increase of 81% compared to operating income of $0.9 million in the second quarter of the previous year. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.2 million, or $0.15 per basic and $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.6 million or $0.09 per basic and $0.08 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

RF Industries reported record six month net sales of $19.7 million for the first half of fiscal 2013, an increase of 61% compared to net sales of $12.2 million in the first half of fiscal 2012. Gross profit increased to $9.0 million with gross margin of 46% in the first six months of fiscal 2013 as compared to gross profit of $5.5 million and gross margin of 45% in the same prior year period. The Company reported operating income of $3.7 million, a 236% increase compared to operating income of $1.1 million in the first six months of 2012. Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2013 increased 270% to $2.7 million or $0.36 per basic and $0.32 per diluted share as compared to net income of $0.7 million or $0.10 per basic and $0.09 per diluted share in the first half of fiscal 2012.

The Company previously announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per common share, payable July 15, 2013 to stockholders of record on June 30, 2013.

At April 30, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $8.5 million and no debt with a current ratio of 7:1.

Mr. Hill commented, "As expected, revenues at the RF Wireless segment decreased due to the winding down of the contract with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, which was entered into in November 2011. Accordingly, the completion of that contract will result in a decrease in revenues from that segment in future periods until other, larger contracts are entered into. Nonetheless, we saw very strong performance on a consolidated basis, with revenue growth at our remaining business segments. Our balance sheet, with a strong cash position and no debt, provides us with the ability to return capital to shareholders through a dividend while also supporting our long term growth strategy."

Mr. Hill concluded, "Our Company is part of a dynamic industry where the demand for wireless connectivity is driving improvements to the wireless infrastructure and we believe that our customized solutions position us well to capitalize on new opportunities in this space."
