Last year Magal had a May 2007 backlog of $30 million of which they approximated $24.6 million was billed in the remaining 3 reported quarters. That $24.6 million was less than half of the $58 million Magal had in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters. If Magal can match the 2007's $27.4 million they had in non-backlog business in the remaining 3 quarters They will finish the year with about $100 million in very profitable revenue.
This year they expect to bill $45.6 million from backlog from June 1 to December 31st. If they only ad another $28 million in business the company will eclipse the $100 million revenue mark vs. $72 million in 2007 and the mid-$60 million range in the recent prior years.
2007 was a confusing year. The company generated nearly $10 million in cash from operations. That profit did not accurately reflect in the EPS numbers. By the time the market figures Magal's earnings power, it should be near a major breakout.
