Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International Corp. commented, “The completion of our audit for the year ended December 31, 2022, was delayed as additional time was needed by the Company to complete the purchase price allocation of the net assets acquired and corresponding ending inventory of our recently acquired SPS subsidiary. As a result, our financial statement audit and the filing of our 2022 Annual Report with the OTC Market was also delayed. On May 16, 2023, our stock was moved from the OTC Pink Market to the OTC Expert Market, an illiquid market. Our audit is now complete, and we have also recently filed our 2022 Annual Report on March 11, 2024 with the OTC Market. Consequently, we are moving toward reinstatement onto the OTC Pink Market.”

Binder added, “Our net income for the year ended December 31, 2022, was $481,000 compared to $3,246,000 for the prior comparable period. Included in our current year-end results is the adverse effect of both $98,000 of one-time costs related to the acquisition of our newly acquired SPS and a $34,000 charge to SPS’ cost of sales due to the increase recorded to its work-in-process and finished goods acquired beginning inventory under Fair Value Accounting (“FVA”). Included in our prior year results is $1,618,000 representing the forgiveness of our loan, including accrued interest, under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) and $363,000 of acquisition costs related to the acquisition of SPS. Exclusive of the one-time acquisition costs and the charge to cost of sales under FVA and the PPP loan forgiveness, our net income for the year ended December 31, 2022, was $613,000 ($0.18 per diluted share) compared to $1,991,000 ($0.57 per diluted share) in the comparable period of the prior year. EBITDA, as adjusted, for the year ended December 31, 2022, exclusive of the one-time acquisition costs and charge to cost of sales under FVA, was $544,000 ($0.16 per diluted share). The decrease in our annual operating results was primarily due to lower revenue from our legacy businesses and higher than expected labor and selling, general and administrative costs at SPS as we added resources during the year to support projected increases in bookings and sales at SPS for 2023.”

Mr. Binder added, “Our sales for the year ended December 31, 2022, increased to $26,074,000 compared to $22,217,000 from the prior comparable period. This increase in sales was attributable to sales from SPS, which is part of our Orbit Electronics Group (“OEG”) and accounted for $6,152,000 in sales during the current year. The increase in sales during the year ended December 31, 2022, was partially offset by a $2,295,000 decrease in sales from our legacy businesses. Our sales for the three months ended December 31, 2022, were $7,462,000, compared to sales of $4,956,000 from the prior comparable period due to the inclusion of sales from SPS in the current period and an increase in sales from the remainder of our OEG (exclusive of SPS).”

Mr. Binder further added, “Our gross margin for the year ended December 31, 2022, exclusive of adjustments to SPS’ work in process and finished goods under FVA, decreased to 33.9% compared to 36.8% in the prior comparable period. This decrease in gross margin during the year ended December 31, 2022, was primarily attributable to the lower gross margin incurred by SPS in comparison to our legacy businesses. However, both our OEG (exclusive of SPS) and our OPG also had slightly lower gross margins from the prior comparable period due to a decrease in sales.”

Mr. Binder added, “Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2022 increased from the prior year comparable period, primarily due to the addition of expenses from SPS and slightly higher corporate costs. Selling expenses at SPS included the hiring during the second quarter of two highly experienced sales personnel who have begun to make a material impact on bookings for SPS. In addition to increased SPS and corporate costs, selling, general and administrative expenses increased due to higher selling expenses and wage inflation.”

Mr. Binder continued, “Backlog at December 31, 2022, was approximately $19,400,000 compared to approximately $17,800,000 at December 31, 2021, both inclusive of the backlog of SPS. The increase in backlog is reflective of the strong bookings we previously reported in the third and fourth quarters of 2022. In addition, the increase in backlog was due to a significant increase in our OPG backlog, which was partially offset by a very slight decrease to the backlog at our OEG. The slight reduction in backlog at our OEG was primarily due to a lower backlog at our Orbit/TDL divisions as well as our SPS subsidiary which was partially offset by a higher backlog at our Q-Vio subsidiary.”

David Goldman, Chief Financial Officer, noted, “At December 31, 2022, our cash and cash equivalents aggregated approximately $4.2 million and our financial condition remained strong as evidenced by our 3.9 to 1 current ratio. Our book value per share at December 31, 2022 was $5.96, which compares to $5.75 at September 30, 2022 and $5.88 at December 31, 2021. (Note: book value per share does not include any additional value for our remaining reserved deferred tax asset). To offset future federal and state taxes resulting from profits, we have approximately $6.1 million and $0.6 million in available federal and New York State net operating loss carryforwards, respectively.”

Mr. Binder added, “Because our revenues are tied to delivery schedules specified in our contracts, it is often difficult to judge our performance on a quarterly basis. Our operating results for 2022 began with very firm operating results for the first quarter, followed by weaker than expected second and third quarter results and a relatively stronger operating performance in the fourth quarter. Our second and third quarter results were affected by reduced revenues from our legacy businesses and higher labor costs at SPS. This all resulted in operating performance for 2022 that was less than expected.

Mr. Binder concluded, “During the second quarter of 2021, based on our improved outlook for our business regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and stability of our financial condition, our Board of Directors authorized the Company to recommence our share repurchase program and in March 2022, our Board of Directors authorized the Company to recommence our quarterly dividend program. However, as a result of our stock being moved to the OTC Expert Market on May 16, 2023, our Board moved to suspend our repurchase program until the Company is reinstated onto the OTC Pink Market. Through May 15, 2023, we have purchased approximately 188,185 shares under the program.”
