Frequency Electronics, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Results
Frequency Electronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEIM) reported revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, which ended October 31, 2014, of $19.2 million compared to $17.0 million recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2015 were $39.0 million compared to $33.8 million recorded in the same period of the prior year. The Company recorded operating profit of $1.8 million for the quarter ended October 31, 2014, up from $928,000 in the preceding quarter and compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Operating profit for the first six months of fiscal year 2015 was $2.7 million compared to $2.2 million in the first half of fiscal year 2014. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $1.3 million or $0.15 per diluted share, up from $719,000 or $0.08 per diluted share in the preceding quarter and compared to $1.4 million or $0.16 per diluted share for the second quarter of the prior year. For the year to date, net income was $2.0 million or $0.23 per diluted share compared to the prior year's $2.1 million or $0.24 per diluted share which results included $736,000 in net proceeds from the sale of certain manufacturing equipment under a license agreement.
Commenting on these results, Chairman of the Board General Joseph Franklin said: "These results demonstrate that we are on track for higher revenues and increased profitability this year. During this past quarter profitability improved at our FEI-Zyfer and Gillam-FEI segments; thus, all three of our reporting segments contributed to consolidated operating income. We anticipate further improvement in operating profit during the remainder of the year. We are successfully addressing the challenge of increasing our high-reliability manufacturing and test capacity for new, larger satellite payload projects. Global events and recent political shifts have heightened national focus on U.S. aerospace and defense industries. Frequency's technology is vital to a broad spectrum of space and C4ISR applications. Our opportunities are large, our finances are strong and the future looks bright."
Fiscal 2015 Selected Financial Metrics and Other Items:
For the six months ended October 31, 2014, satellite payload revenues continued to account for more than 60% of consolidated revenues.

For the six months ended October 31, 2014, total sales for U.S. Government/DOD end-use, including revenues on U.S. Government satellite programs, exceeded 40% of consolidated revenues. Approximately half of funded backlog is related to products for U.S. Government end-use. Backlog at October 31, 2014 is approximately $52 million compared to $48 million as of the beginning of fiscal year 2015. During the quarter ended October 31, 2014, the Company generated positive operating cash flow of $3.1 million.
