NEWTON, Mass., May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dynasil Corporation of America (DYSL), a developer and manufacturer of optics and photonics products, optical detection and analysis technology and components for the homeland security, medical and industrial markets, today announced second quarter fiscal 2019 results.
Second Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results
Consolidated revenue was $11.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. This $1.2 million or 12% revenue increase resulted from both a 5% increase in Optics segment revenue and a 22% increase in Innovations and Development segment revenue each as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2018.
Gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was $4.4 million, or 38% of revenue, as compared to the gross profit of $3.9 million, or 38% of revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.
Total operating expenses were $4.0 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, a 3% increase over the $3.9 million in operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase was attributable to our continued investments in our new initiatives, including promotional activities from our new marketing team along with higher patent and recruiting expenses.
Income from operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was $0.3 million, compared with $0.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.
Certain key metrics by segment for the current quarter and the same quarter last year are presented below:

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was essentially breakeven, or $0.00 in basic earnings per share, compared to $1.3 million, or $0.08 in basic earnings per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2019 was approximately $0.2 million, whereas, during the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company had a tax provision benefit of $1.3 million primarily as the result of the estimate of the PATH 2015 R&E Tax Credit for the years 2012 thru 2016 that the Company was in the process of conducting in fiscal year 2018.
Plan to Deregister and Delist the Common Stock
On May 2, 2019, the Company announced that a Special Committee of independent directors has recommended, and its Board of Directors has approved, a plan to cease the registration of the Company’s common stock under the federal securities laws following the completion of a proposed reverse stock split transaction and to delist its shares of common stock from trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market. It is expected that this plan would be effectuated in late summer 2019, subject to Dynasil’s stockholders approving the proposed reverse stock split at a Special Meeting of Stockholders to be held for that purpose. The Company expects to file a preliminary proxy statement with the SEC later in May. Once available, the Company encourages investors to read the proxy statement.
As the Company is currently in a proxy filing process with respect to the above announcement, it will not be hosting a quarterly conference call with respect to its second quarter fiscal 2019 results.
