COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. (“SCI”) (SCIA:OTCQB), a global supplier and manufacturer of advanced materials for physical vapor deposition thin film applications who works closely with end users and OEMs to develop innovative, customized solutions, today reported results for the nine months and three months ended September 30, 2019.

Jeremy Young, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our year-to-date and third quarter results benefited from strong revenue growth. This was due to solid increases in photonic product sales, initial orders from new photonic customers, and the pass-through of higher costs of a key raw material. We expect revenue for the full-year 2019 to exceed the full-year 2018. Revenue is anticipated to be lower in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to recent quarters due to product mix and continued uncertainties concerning the thin film solar market in China.”

Mr. Young continued, “During this period we are focusing our attention and resources on factors we can control in our business. These include maintaining a strong balance sheet, addressing growth markets that leverage SCI’s established manufacturing capabilities, and pursuing market-sensitive R&D initiatives.”

Revenue

Total revenue increased 42% to $10,012,187 for the first nine months of 2019 from $7,043,244 for the same period in 2018. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, total revenue increased nearly 23% to $3,255,201 from $2,652,635 a year ago. The 2019 year-to-date and third quarter revenue increases were primarily attributable to higher photonic product sales volume and increased pricing related to the pass-through of higher costs of a key raw material. At September 30, 2019, order backlog was $5.8 million compared to $6.6 million at June 30, 2019, and $7.5 million on the same date last year.

Gross profit

Gross profit was $1,849,491 for the 2019 year-to-date period, which benefited from higher volume and increased pricing for photonics products, compared to $1,917,425 a year ago. For the 2019 third quarter, gross profit decreased to $458,520 from $665,884 for the same period in 2018. Product mix, specifically due to lower thin film solar sales volume, and increased costs for a key raw material used in certain photonic products contributed to lower overall gross profit margin for the nine months and three months ended September 30, 2019, compared to last year.

Operating expenses

Operating expenses (general and administrative expense, research and development expense, and marketing and sales expense) were $1,442,519 for the 2019 year-to-date period compared to $1,353,025 a year ago. General and administrative expense was 14% above the prior year period, which was attributable to higher compensation expenses, including temporary executive management transition expenses during the first half of 2019, higher professional fees and start-up costs for the Company’s bonding facility in China. Research and development expense increased approximately 13% to $283,672 for the first nine months of 2019 compared to a year ago due to higher compensation and ongoing research including development of innovative products for the thin film solar and transparent electronics markets. Marketing and sales expense decreased 23% to $201,427 for the 2019 year-to-date period versus last year principally due to reallocation of salary expense and lower commissions.

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, operating expenses decreased 25% to $391,649 from $519,187 the prior year. This was attributable to a decrease in each category of operating expenses versus a year ago.

Income Applicable to Common Shares

Income applicable to common shares for the first nine months of 2019 decreased to $365,978, or $0.08 per share, from $524,259, or $0.12 per share, for the same period in 2018. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, income applicable to common stock decreased to $56,294, or $0.01 per share, compared to $138,088, or $0.03 per share, last year.

EBITDA*

Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was $777,078 for the first nine months of 2019 versus $910,705 for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash stock-based compensation, was $875,379 for the 2019 year-to-date period compared to $994,665 a year ago.

EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2019, was $163,430 compared to $249,198 the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $196,195 versus $290,139 for the same period last year.

Cash and Total Debt Outstanding

Cash on hand decreased 6% during the 2019 year-to-date period to $1,694,890 from $1,802,839 at 2018 year-end. During the first nine months of 2019 the Company purchased inventory and production equipment, and constructed an in-plant office structured mezzanine within its manufacturing facility.

Cash provided by operating activities was $340,194 for the first nine months of 2019 compared to $1,965,836 for the same period last year. This decrease was primarily due to lower customer deposits versus the same period a year ago.

The Company’s total debt outstanding was $246,186 at September 30, 2019, compared to $262,731 at December 31, 2018. The Company paid down $95,495 of debt during the first nine months of 2019. New capital lease obligations of $78,950 and $105,325 were incurred during the 2019 and 2018 year-to-date periods, respectively.
