·14 min read

Fiscal Q2 Revenue up 53% and Company Returns to Profitability

WESTMINSTER, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2020 / TechPrecision Corporation (OTCQB:TPCS) ("TechPrecision" or "the Company"), an industry-leading manufacturer of precision, large-scale fabricated and machined metal components and tested systems with customers in the defense and precision industrial sectors, today reported financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020. Fiscal 2021 second quarter sales were $4.7 million compared to $3.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The Company recorded net income of $271,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to net loss of $291,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

"Our results for the second quarter were highlighted by strong revenue and a favorable project mix which drove improved gross margins and higher net income," stated Alexander Shen, TechPrecision's Chief Executive Officer. "This outcome resulted in an overall improvement in reported financial results for the first six months of fiscal 2021 when compared to the same period in the prior year. We expect to carry these improvements in revenues and margins into the remainder of fiscal 2021."

"The Company's sales order backlog was $14.8 million on September 30, 2020," stated Mr. Shen. "We continue to replenish backlog as we booked over $5.1 million of new orders in the second quarter and see significant opportunities with our customers."

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2021 Financial Results

  • Net sales were $4.7 million or 53% higher when compared to $3.1 million in the same quarter a year ago.

  • Gross profit was $1.1 million, up by $0.7 million from the same quarter last year.

  • Gross margin was 23.9%, up from 13.5% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 due to favorable project mix.

  • Operating income was $433,000, compared to operating loss of $327,000 in the same period a year ago.

  • Net income was $271,000, compared to net loss of $291,000 for the same period a year ago.

  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $604,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of $739,000 from the same period a year ago.

Six Months of Fiscal 2021 Financial Results

  • Net sales were $8.0 million or 8% higher when compared to $7.4 million in the same period a year ago.

  • Gross profit was $1.8 million, up 20% when compared to the same period last year.

  • SG&A was $1.5 million, unchanged from the same period last year.

  • Operating income for the six-month period was $336,000 compared to operating income of $41,000 in the same period a year ago.

  • Net income of $155,000 was $225,000 higher when compared to the net loss a year ago.

  • EBITDA was $678,000 compared to $442,000 in the same period a year ago.

Financial Position

At September 30, 2020, TechPrecision had $1.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, an increase of $0.2 million since March 31, 2020.

On May 8, 2020, the Company issued a promissory note evidencing an unsecured loan in the amount of $1.3 million under the Paycheck Protection Program, or the PPP. The PPP was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The loan was made through Berkshire Bank, and the Company received $1.3 million of proceeds on May 11, 2020.

Working capital was $7.1 million compared to working capital of $5.6 million at March 31, 2020. The Company has access to additional capital via the existing revolver loan should management determine it needs to bolster liquidity as the Company manages through the effects of the pandemic.

Acquisition of Stadco

On October 16, 2020, TechPrecision Corporation entered into a stock purchase agreement to acquire all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Stadco, a California corporation in the business of manufacturing high-precision parts, assemblies and tooling for aerospace, defense, research and commercial customers. As consideration, the Company will issue 1,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock. The Company and Stadco are working with creditors of Stadco to substantially reduce the approximately $14 million of Stadco liabilities that would otherwise be added to the consolidated balance of the combined company after closing. Reaching agreements with these creditors to the satisfaction of the Company is required for the closing of the deal to occur. The Company expects that a percentage of these liabilities will be satisfied in part or full through the issuance of additional shares of the Company's common stock.

As due diligence and negotiations are currently on-going, at this time the Company will not make any further comments regarding Stadco.

COVID-19 Update

At the end of March of 2020, the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) had spread worldwide as a pandemic. The full extent of the outbreak, related business and travel restrictions and changes to social behavior intended to reduce its spread remain uncertain as the health crisis continues to evolve in the U.S. and abroad. The directives imposed by federal, state and local governments did not impair our ability to maintain operations during the second quarter of fiscal 2021 as the Company was designated an "Essential Service." However, the pandemic has negatively affected the Company's customers, suppliers and labor force, resulting in a number of inspection and approval delays for certain projects caused by new or enhanced mandated safety precautions. Accordingly, as conditions continue to change as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the impact on our operations and financial results for the remainder of fiscal 2021 remains uncertain.
