Commenting on the Company’s 2017 results, Executive Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr. stated, “I am very pleased to report to our shareholders our operating subsidiaries more than made up for the shortfall from hurricane Irma and are trending to a new normal. Revenue of $22.4 million, up 7.2% compared to 2016, is particularly significant since our internally developed metrics indicate our market grew by approximately 3%. Net income was $0.04 per share compared to $0.06 per share in 2016, but the decrease is not an operational issue, it is due in part to an increase in tax expense, related to the reversal of a valuation allowance in 2016, and an impairment of a note receivable of $102,000, related to an asset sale in 2013. Our backlog improved 11.4% to $11.7 million at year end up from $ 10.5 million in 2016. This is the metric we pay particular attention to. We strive for a book to bill of greater than one. This new business is attributed to our move to value-added assemblies which are less competitive and that provide engineered solutions to our customers.”

In closing, Mr. Ferrantino added, “We enter 2018 with a seasoned group of associates, our backlog is solid, our new order funnel is growing, and our capacity to handle an increase in business with small capital investment exists, so yes, I believe we are moving to a new normal. Finally, I want to thank all our employees, customers and shareholders for their hard work, commitment to giving us business and standing by us. I am both humbled and grateful for the success of our rights offering completed in the fall, which was oversubscribed and raised net cash of approximately $10.8 million. Although we are continuing to evaluate the best use of your investment, I can report we are being extremely judicious in our pursuit to increase shareholder value.”

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) basis, the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items we believe are discrete events which have a significant impact on comparable GAAP measures and could distort an evaluation of our normal operating performance. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted earnings per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
