Solitron Devices, Inc. Financial/Corporate Update

·9 min read

WEST PALM BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 29, 2020 / Solitron Devices, Inc. (OTC PINK:SODI) ("Solitron" or the "Company") is providing the following financial/corporate update.

FISCAL 2021 THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net sales of approximately $2.3 million in the fiscal 2021 third quarter (three month period ending November 30, 2020) versus $2.3 million in the prior year period

  • Net bookings of $1.3 million in the fiscal 2021 third quarter versus $3.5 million in prior year period

  • Cash and securities of approximately $3.7 million and debt of $0.8 million under our PPP loan at the end of the fiscal 2021 third quarter versus cash and securities of $2.9 million and debt of $0.8 million at the end of the fiscal 2021 second quarter.

  • Accounts Receivable was $1.1 million at the end of the fiscal 2021 third quarter as compared to $1.8 million at the end of the fiscal 2021 second quarter and $1.4 million at the end of fiscal 2020.

In a year of unusual challenges, our team has done a remarkable job. We are on track to come close to, meet or exceed the updated fiscal year 2021 expectations from our September press release of $10.5 million in net sales, $11.5 million of bookings, and a meaningful improvement in net income.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2021 net sales were $7.9 million versus $7.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Our current estimate for fiscal 2021 fourth quarter net sales is $2.4 to $2.7 million. This would result in net sales for fiscal 2021 of between $10.3 million and $10.6 million. If achieved, it would be the first time the company has exceeded $10 million in fiscal year revenues since the company went through a reorganization more than 25 years ago. As a reminder, when current management took over in 2016 trailing twelve months sales were approximately $7.5 million.

Due to COVID-19 we have experienced significant delays in bookings. In the first nine months of fiscal 2021 bookings were just $4.4 million versus $9.1 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. So far in the month of December we have received bookings in excess of $6.6 million and expect to receive approximately another $1.0 to $1.5 million of additional bookings before the end of the fiscal year in February 2021. As a reminder, timing is always uncertain with regard to the receipt of government/defense related contracts.

In July, based on the then current economic uncertainty due to the resurgence of the coronavirus in the country, and South Florida in particular, and the impact of the COVID-19 on our bookings, the Company applied for and was approved for a PPP loan in the amount of $0.8 million. We will be eligible to apply for forgiveness in January.
