Arotech Corporation Q3 EPS $0.06 Beats $0.02 Estimate, Sales $23.844M Beat $23.5M Estimate
4:38 pm ET November 6, 2018 (Benzinga) Print
Arotech Corporation (NASDAQ:ARTX) reported quarterly earnings of $0.06 per share which beat the analyst consensus estimate of $0.02 by 200 percent. This is unchanged from the same period last year. The company reported quarterly sales of $23.844 million which beat the analyst consensus estimate of $23.5 million by 1.46 percent. This is a 8.04 percent decrease over sales of $25.93 million the same period last year.

We are pleased to see our Simulation Division building on the positive results that were achieved in the first half of 2018,” commented Arotech CEO Dean Krutty. “In the third quarter, our MILO Training Systems group expanded its growth in U.S. military sales with penetration into the U.S. Air Force, and our vehicle simulator sales, both commercial and military, are running well. Strong sales and delivery of our simulation-based training products are improving our outlook for this division.”

“Our Power Systems Division was informed that we won an important award with SPAWAR on a new IDIQ referred to as Cyber Mission Kitting. This was offset by news we received in Q3 that the United States Marine Corps is discontinuing its efforts to upgrade the aging AAV fleet that was undergoing survivability and electrical upgrades under a prime contract with SAIC. Our role on the program as a subcontractor to SAIC was likewise terminated for convenience, which has removed some anticipated revenue from our backlog and pipeline.”

“Our battery group in Israel is delivering on what we expect to be a new sales record for water activated battery life jacket lights to the aviation and marine industries. At the same time, the new product investments we began this year are beginning to produce initial sales, and are validating our commitment to diversifying our customer base,” concluded Mr. Krutty.

Third Quarter Financial Summary

Revenues for the third quarter of 2018 were $23.8 million, compared to $25.9 million for the corresponding period in 2017, a decrease of 8.0%. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decline in the Power Systems Division related to the termination for convenience order on the AAV program, as well as the decline in battery orders from the Israeli Ministry of Defense contract that was completed in early 2018.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2018 was $7.3 million, or 30.7% of revenues, compared to $7.3 million, or 28.0% of revenues, for the corresponding period in 2017. The year-over-year increase in gross profit percentage was primarily due to program losses incurred in 2017 in the Power Systems Division and, to a lesser extent, product mix in the Training and Simulation Division for the current period.

Operating expenses were $6.2 million, or 25.9% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to operating expenses of $6.0 million, or 23.1% of revenues, for the corresponding period in 2017.

Operating income for the third quarter was $1.1 million compared to $1.3 million in the corresponding period in 2017.

The Company’s net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $741,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $788,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2017.

Adjusted Earnings per Share (Adjusted EPS) for the third quarter of both 2018 and 2017 was $0.06.

Year-to-Date Financial Summary

Revenues for the first nine months of 2018 were $73.0 million, compared to $69.7 million for the comparable period in 2017, an increase of 4.6%.
