FISCAL 2015 FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

 

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $86.5 million, up 18% from fourth quarter fiscal 2014 revenue of $73.5 million. The increase in revenue resulted from increased sales in our Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) segment of $18.7 million offset by a decrease in sales in our Efficient Energy Systems (EES) segment of $5.7 million.

 

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $45.4 million, up 50% from fourth quarter fiscal 2014 gross margin of $30.1 million. The increase in gross margin was due to an increase in product margin of $9.7 million and service margin of $5.5 million. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin increased to 52% from 41%.

 

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $7.5 million compared to income from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 of $6.9 million. The increase in income from operations was a result of an increase in gross margin of $15.2 million and a decrease in selling, general & administrative (SG&A) expense of $1.3 million, offset by an increase in research and development (R&D) of $16.0 million.

 

Other expense, net, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $0.5 million compared to other income, net, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 of $2.9 million.  The decrease was primarily due to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 including a $2.8 million increase in fair value of the embedded conversion feature of our convertible bond investment.   During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we did not have any convertible bond investments.

 

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $7.1 million compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 of $8.1 million.

 

Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 were $0.31 compared to earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 of $0.35.  Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 included a loss of $0.01 per share due to losses on our equity investment. Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 included an increase of $0.08 per share due to the increase in fair value of the conversion option of our convertible bond investment.
