Servotronics Announces First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

-- Sales and gross margin reflect sequential improvement over fourth quarter of 2022 --

ELMA, N.Y., May 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE American – SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

Highlights for the first quarter financial results include the following:

  • Consolidated revenues were $10.8 million, down 3.3% from $11.2 million in the first quarter of 2022. Sequentially, consolidated revenues were up 3.5% from $10.4 million as compared to the fourth quarter of 2022.

  • Gross profit decreased to $0.9 million or 8.5% of revenue in the first quarter, down from $3.0 million, or 26.5% of revenue in the first quarter of 2022 which included an unusually favorable product mix. Sequentially, gross profit increased 48.8% from $0.6 million, or 5.9% of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2022.

  • Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") costs increased $0.3 million to $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2023 compared to $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Operating loss for the quarter was $1.9 million compared with operating income of $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Net loss was $1.5 million, or a loss of ($0.63) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2023 compared to net income of $0.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2022 which, as previously noted, benefited from unusually favorable product mix.

"As we noted when reporting our fourth quarter results, our business continued to be affected by supply chain issues which are evident in our first quarter results," said Chief Executive Officer William F. Farrell, Jr. "We generated solid sequential improvement in sales and gross margin in the first quarter, but unfavorable product mix and continued inflationary pressures on our operating costs also impacted our overall results. However, as also expected when we reported our 2022 year-end results, we have started to see some progress and continue to anticipate improvement in these conditions to be apparent in our financial results in the second half of the year.  We are confident in the outlook for our key end markets, and demand has remained resilient in our ATG segment, with increasing unit sales volume during the quarter. Further, to address long-term performance concerns of our CPG segment, we have recently announced a review of strategic alternatives for the group with the intention of generating the maximum value for our shareholders as this is completed over the coming quarters."

Business Segment Results

First quarter ATG revenues declined to $9.0 million in 2023, down 1.2% from the first quarter of 2022, driven primarily from an unfavorable product mix partially offset by increases in pricing and higher volumes. CPG revenues decreased 12.9%, to $1.7 million, from $2.0 million in the prior-year period.  The CPG revenue decline was the result of an unfavorable product mix and reduced volume.

For the first quarter, ATG gross profit declined to $1.0 million, or 10.9% of sales, down from $2.4 million, or 25.7% of sales in the prior year period which benefited significantly from unusually favorable product mix. Current year ATG gross profit was unfavorably impacted by product mix, higher operating costs, and reduced productivity, partially offset by increased volume and improved pricing. The increased operating costs include investments in staffing to support growing customer demand. CPG gross profit was a loss of $0.1 million or (4.0%) of sales from $0.3 million, or 14.3% of sales in the first quarter of 2022.  CPG gross profit declined due to unfavorable product mix partially offset by favorable operating variances.

First-quarter SG&A expenses increased approximately $0.3 million compared to the prior-year period. SG&A expenses at CPG increased approximately $0.2 million due to higher compensation and benefits and increased outbound freight and professional fees.  SG&A expenses at ATG increased by $0.1 million due to higher R&D and insurance expense.

Net loss for the first quarter was $1.5 million, or a loss of ($0.63) per diluted share compared to net income of $0.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2022. The significant change is primarily due to significantly favorable product mix last year and investments in staffing in the current year to support growing customer demand.

Operating cash flow for the quarter was a use of $2.8 million as compared to a use of $0.5 million in the prior-year period.  The higher cash usage was a direct result of the lower net income, along with an increase in inventory and accounts receivable compared to the prior year. As a result, the Company's total cash balance declined to $1.2 million on March 31, 2023.

Mr. Farrell concluded, "While certain of our first-quarter results were an improvement over the fourth quarter, our team continues to focus on improving our operations and driving profitability.  Our actions are shaped by the four key objectives of our strategic vision: profitable growth, people centric culture, operational excellence, and quality.  Our revitalized culture of integrity, accountability, and transparency will continue to propel Servotronics as we bring in new talent and leaders to drive continuous improvement in every aspect of our operations. While we have made considerable progress so far, we realize there is much work left to do, so we will continue to prioritize growth and profitability which will help drive sustainable long-term value for all of our stakeholders."
