BK Technologies Reports Second Quarter and Six Months 2018 Results
-Six Months Sales Grow 40%; Operating Income Increases $2.3 Million from Prior Year-
 
WEST MELBOURNE, Florida – August 1, 2018 – BK Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American: BKTI) today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.
 
For the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, revenues increased 26.9% to approximately $13.7 million, compared with approximately $10.8 million for the second quarter of 2017. Operating income for the second quarter of 2018 increased 36.8% to approximately $1.3 million, compared with $973,000 for the second quarter last year. Net income for the second quarter of 2018 was approximately $947,000, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared with $1.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the same quarter in 2017.
 
The Company had approximately $23.4 million in working capital as of June 30, 2018, of which $17.7 million was comprised of cash, cash equivalents and trade receivables. This compares with working capital of approximately $26.7 million as of December 31, 2017, of which $12.7 million was comprised of cash, cash equivalents and trade receivables. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had no borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility.
 
Tim Vitou, BK’s President, commented, “Our operating results for the second quarter and six months were encouraging, featuring sales growth, improvement in gross profit margins and strong operating income. State public safety agencies were the primary driver for second quarter sales. They were complemented, however, with solid demand from the federal market, including legacy customers in the wildland fire suppression community. Gross profit margins increased for the second consecutive quarter, derived from manufacturing and quality improvement initiatives, increased volumes and a more favorable mix of product sales. These factors combined to turn last year’s operating loss into $2.1 million of operating income for the first half of this year.
 
Mr. Vitou continued, “We also realized improvement on the balance sheet, reducing inventory by approximately $1.6 million and generating $3.6 million in cash for the first six months of 2018, which has funded accelerated investment in engineering and new product development, leading toward the anticipated introduction of a new line of leading-edge products later this year. The financial and operating results also enabled us to continue our capital return program, which has yielded nine consecutive quarterly dividends and the repurchase of over 350,000 shares of our common stock through June 30, 2018. Overall, the trend of key metrics for our business and the market are promising.”
 
 
 
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, sales increased 40.0% to approximately $25.4 million compared with approximately $18.1 million for the same period last year. Operating income for the six month period of 2018 increased to approximately $2.1 million, compared with an operating loss of approximately $233,000 for the same period last year. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 totaled approximately $503,000, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared with $50,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share for the same period last year.
 
The financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2018 include a loss on investment in securities totaling approximately $1.2 million, compared with a gain of approximately $617,000 for the six month period last year.
