Returning to consistent profitability is our primary objective as we close out fiscal 2022 and move into fiscal 2023.  The financial results for the quarter were significantly affected by one-time costs associated with senior management restructuring and related legal fees.  Nonetheless, we remain profitable through two quarters and continue to focus on increasing the profitability of the Company.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, November 15, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for the first three months of fiscal year 2022.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, July 1 to September 30, 2021, were $7,545,432, compared with last year’s first quarter net sales of $7,265,515. Net income for the quarter was $306,061, $0.13 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $189,824, $0.08 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

The backlog for the Company was approximately $75.2 million at September 30, 2021, compared with last year’s backlog of $62 million at September 30, 2020. New orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2022 were approximately $17.1 million, compared with new orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2021 of $14.3 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

A strong start of $17 million in new orders during the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 provides the company with a stable base of over $75 million in backlog, with contracted delivery dates spanning the next few years.  The slight uptick in net sales translated into a commensurate increase in net income as compared to the same period last fiscal year.  These results indicate that although the effects of the COVID pandemic remain a key driver in revenue recognition moving into future quarters, the company and our supply base are working to stabilize operations in this challenging environment.

The company’s ability to turn work-in-process and inventory into revenue will continue to follow the ebbs and flows of the pandemic’s impact on our extended community.  As an example, the surge attributed to the Delta variant of COVID 19 slowed the acceleration of improvement seen in the last month of fiscal year 2021 and the first month of this fiscal year.  A similar surge as winter hits our region could further slow the improvement we are seeing in the performance of our suppliers as well as our in-house operations. Regardless of the impacts levied by the pandemic, the Espey team will continue to find innovative ways to execute on our backlog and strive to increase our sales revenue in the coming quarters.  As always, I appreciate the continued support shown by all the stakeholders of Espey’s success.

 

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports fourth quarter and year-end results

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021, the Company reported net sales of $27,734,598 compared with $31,526,231 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.  Net loss for the year was $(181,543), $(0.08) per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,163,668, $0.49 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.  At June 30, 2021, the sales order backlog was $65.6 million, compared to last year’s backlog of $54.9 million at June 30, 2020.

For the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2021, net sales decreased to $9,301,950 compared with last year’s fourth quarter net sales of $12,124,438.  The net income for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $879,753, $0.36 per diluted share, compared with net income of $956,693, $0.40 per diluted share, for the corresponding period last year.

Also, new orders for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 were $38.5 million compared with the $40.9 million for the corresponding period last year.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

 In fiscal year 2021, impacts from the global pandemic challenged the Espey team in unprecedented ways.  The effects of the global shortage of electronic components, the retraction of the commercial airline industry, and the continued decline in the transportation market we serve all contributed to our loss for the year.  As reported in Q3, we had a pandemic-caused shutdown that deeply affected our team and our community.  Our ability to retain valued employees and attract new personnel to support our growth faced challenges common to many businesses during the COVID era.  

Looking forward it is apparent the challenges described above will continue to affect businesses worldwide.  The focus of the entire Espey team, supported by our Board of Directors, is to deal with each challenge head-on and emerge from this period stronger than ever.  Specifically, we will continue to work with our existing customers collaboratively to resolve issues and deliver product that supports their missions.  Our increase in backlog of over $10 million in fiscal 2021 indicates our commitment to our customers is paying off.  The fact that our loss for the year was just shy of $200,000, during a year in which we wrote down our commercial airline contract and absorbed cost growth from suppliers on a few major programs, demonstrates the continuing strength of other markets we serve and the more diverse lines of business we have achieved over the past few years. 

Finally, the financial discipline demonstrated throughout fiscal 2021 resulted in a strong balance sheet and a conservation of cash that gives Espey the ability to weather the effects of the continuing pandemic, and positions us well to become profitable again and resume returns to shareholders we have historically achieved.  As always, I appreciate the continued support of our investor community, our customers and most importantly our employees that remain dedicated to our mission and committed to our success.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports third quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports third quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, May 17, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP)

announces results for the first nine months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, January 1 to March 31, 2021, were $4,205,068, compared with last year’s third quarter net sales of $6,191,300. Net loss for the quarter was $(1,070,114), $(0.44) per diluted share, as compared to net loss of $(103,765), $(0.04) per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

For the first nine months of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to March 31, 2021, net sales were $18.4 million, compared with $19.4 million for the first nine months of fiscal year 2020. Net loss for the period was $(1,061,297), $(0.44) per diluted share, compared with net income of $206,975, $0.09 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

The backlog for the Company was approximately $67.3 million at March 31, 2021, compared with last year’s backlog of $59.8 million at March 31, 2020. New orders in the first nine months of fiscal year 2021 were $30.8 million, compared with new orders in the first nine months of fiscal year 2020 of $33.6 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

The current quarter results reflect continuing issues associated with the pandemic’s impact on the industries we service. Direct impacts include the write-off of inventory under a commercial airline industry contract partially written down last quarter. We also incurred additional, unplanned investment in a new development program for submarines. A major subcontractor increased its cost to supply a critical component for the first production deliveries. This one-time increase was absorbed by Espey in order to remain a supplier for the submarine class over the coming decade. In addition, supply of electronic components, which were already in short supply prior to the pandemic, now have lead times stretching out to over a year, which moves revenue recognition into future quarters.

Unfortunately the pandemic also hit closer to home for us. Nearly a year into the pandemic, Espey suffered a COVID 19 outbreak in our facility. Following governmental guidelines, Espey closed the facility for ten days to allow the outbreak to run its course, but the impacts to our production line are still being felt more than a month later.

Based on the direct and indirect impacts the pandemic had on Espey in Q3, we currently believe annual sales will be lower than prior year sales and earnings-per share will be lower than the prior year, each reflecting a decrease from the original plan. However, new order bookings are expected to exceed $40 million for the current fiscal year and our backlog remains strong at over $67 million as of March 31, 2021.

Our customers, suppliers and the end users of our defense products are coming together in a collaborative environment to identify and address the common issues we are all facing. The challenges encountered over this fiscal year are not unique to Espey. The diversity of our offerings, and the relationships built over the last few years continue to allow our backlog to grow to record levels. We are positioned well for the coming fiscal years with stable programs and dedicated customers. We recognize and appreciate the continued support we have from our investors, and we are preparing to emerge from the challenges of the pandemic stronger than we have ever been.

Espey Suspends Dividend

Saratoga Springs, NY; March 9, 2021 – The Board of Directors of Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE AMERICAN: ESP) has suspended its quarterly dividend.

The Board of Directors of Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. has determined to suspend payment of a cash dividend which, in accordance with practice, would have been declared and paid prior to the end of this month. In making the determination, the Board balanced the objective of maintaining Espey’s strong position to address the business challenges caused by the global pandemic which continue to confront the industries the Company services, against the historical payment of consistent dividends to shareholders.

Patrick Enright, Espey’s President and CEO, explained the Board’s decision. “The continued decline of the rail industry, the virtual collapse of the commercial airline market, the global shortage of electronic
components and the erosion of on-time performance throughout the entire supply chain, will continue to contribute to delays in deliveries of product by the Company and put pressure on our earnings. We believe that conservative stewardship of our strong cash position will enable us to weather the current headwinds and to make timely and strategic investments in personnel and new programs. The Company has a robust backlog of orders and the Board determined that this approach will enable Espey to come through the pandemic in a strong position to deliver existing orders effectively and efficiently.”

Espey’s primary business is the development, design, and production of specialized military and industrial power supplies/transformers. The Company can be found on the Internet at www.espey.com.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports second quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports second quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, February 16, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for the first six months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, October 1 to December 31, 2020, were $6,962,065, compared with last year’s second quarter net sales of $7,286,674. Net loss for the quarter was $(181,006), $(0.08) per diluted share, as compared to net income of $228,964, $0.10 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

For the first six months of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to December 31, 2020, net sales were $14.2 million, compared with $13.2 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2020. Net income for the period was $8,817, $0.00 per diluted share, compared with net income of $310,740, $0.13 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

The backlog for the Company was $60.1 million at December 31, 2020, compared with last year’s backlog of $58.4 million at December 31, 2019. New orders in the first six months of fiscal year 2021 were $19.4 million, compared with new orders in the first six months of fiscal year 2020 of $26 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

The current quarter was a challenge with reduced sales and a product mix that netted overall lower margins, which were further exacerbated by a pandemic-related contract cancellation which resulted in us recognizing a loss for the quarter. Specific to the cancellation, we recognized an inventory write-off equivalent to fifty percent of the contract’s capitalized inventory value. Product under this engineering design and production contract was intended to be used in the commercial airline industry, which continues to be significantly impacted by the Coronavirus. As we work with our customer on the terms of the contract cancellation, we will look for alternate uses for this technology. Looking ahead, we currently believe annual sales will likely be in-line with the prior year sales but earnings-per share will be lower than prior year, a decrease from the original plan. However, new order bookings are expected to remain on target to reach $40 million for the current fiscal year and our backlog remains strong at $60.1 million as of December 31, 2020.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, November 16, 2020 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for its first three months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to September 30, 2020, were $7,265,515, compared with last year’s first quarter net sales of $5,923,819. Net income for the quarter increased to $189,824, $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $81,776, $0.03 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

The backlog for the Company was $62 million at September 30, 2020, compared with last year’s backlog of $46.6 million at September 30, 2019. New orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2021 were $14.3 million, compared with new orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2020 of approximately $7.0 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

Earnings for the quarter are up as we started to see the initial impact of targeted cost reductions which we put in place to offset the anticipated impact from necessary investments in new programs. An increase in sales, bolstered by strong build to print shipments and robust new sales order bookings, rounded out the quarter.

While the future of defense spending budgets remain uncertain due to both the administration transition in Washington D.C., and the likely re-assessment of Federal budget appropriations resulting from the effects of the continuing global pandemic, we remain cautiously optimistic that any impact to our anticipated new order bookings for the current fiscal year will be minimal. The growth strategy we have put in place by investing in new programs and diversifying our customer base, along with introducing targeted cost reductions, should put us in a good position as we navigate through these uncertain times. In the meantime, our primary focus continues to be on improving liquidity by the turning of inventory into sales.

Returning to consistent profitability is our primary objective as we close out fiscal 2022 and move into fiscal 2023.  The financial results for the quarter were significantly affected by one-time costs associated with senior management restructuring and related legal fees.  Nonetheless, we remain profitable through two quarters and continue to focus on increasing the profitability of the Company.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, November 15, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for the first three months of fiscal year 2022.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, July 1 to September 30, 2021, were $7,545,432, compared with last year’s first quarter net sales of $7,265,515. Net income for the quarter was $306,061, $0.13 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $189,824, $0.08 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

The backlog for the Company was approximately $75.2 million at September 30, 2021, compared with last year’s backlog of $62 million at September 30, 2020. New orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2022 were approximately $17.1 million, compared with new orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2021 of $14.3 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

A strong start of $17 million in new orders during the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 provides the company with a stable base of over $75 million in backlog, with contracted delivery dates spanning the next few years.  The slight uptick in net sales translated into a commensurate increase in net income as compared to the same period last fiscal year.  These results indicate that although the effects of the COVID pandemic remain a key driver in revenue recognition moving into future quarters, the company and our supply base are working to stabilize operations in this challenging environment.

The company’s ability to turn work-in-process and inventory into revenue will continue to follow the ebbs and flows of the pandemic’s impact on our extended community.  As an example, the surge attributed to the Delta variant of COVID 19 slowed the acceleration of improvement seen in the last month of fiscal year 2021 and the first month of this fiscal year.  A similar surge as winter hits our region could further slow the improvement we are seeing in the performance of our suppliers as well as our in-house operations. Regardless of the impacts levied by the pandemic, the Espey team will continue to find innovative ways to execute on our backlog and strive to increase our sales revenue in the coming quarters.  As always, I appreciate the continued support shown by all the stakeholders of Espey’s success.

 

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports fourth quarter and year-end results

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021, the Company reported net sales of $27,734,598 compared with $31,526,231 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.  Net loss for the year was $(181,543), $(0.08) per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,163,668, $0.49 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.  At June 30, 2021, the sales order backlog was $65.6 million, compared to last year’s backlog of $54.9 million at June 30, 2020.

For the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2021, net sales decreased to $9,301,950 compared with last year’s fourth quarter net sales of $12,124,438.  The net income for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $879,753, $0.36 per diluted share, compared with net income of $956,693, $0.40 per diluted share, for the corresponding period last year.

Also, new orders for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 were $38.5 million compared with the $40.9 million for the corresponding period last year.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

 In fiscal year 2021, impacts from the global pandemic challenged the Espey team in unprecedented ways.  The effects of the global shortage of electronic components, the retraction of the commercial airline industry, and the continued decline in the transportation market we serve all contributed to our loss for the year.  As reported in Q3, we had a pandemic-caused shutdown that deeply affected our team and our community.  Our ability to retain valued employees and attract new personnel to support our growth faced challenges common to many businesses during the COVID era.  

Looking forward it is apparent the challenges described above will continue to affect businesses worldwide.  The focus of the entire Espey team, supported by our Board of Directors, is to deal with each challenge head-on and emerge from this period stronger than ever.  Specifically, we will continue to work with our existing customers collaboratively to resolve issues and deliver product that supports their missions.  Our increase in backlog of over $10 million in fiscal 2021 indicates our commitment to our customers is paying off.  The fact that our loss for the year was just shy of $200,000, during a year in which we wrote down our commercial airline contract and absorbed cost growth from suppliers on a few major programs, demonstrates the continuing strength of other markets we serve and the more diverse lines of business we have achieved over the past few years. 

Finally, the financial discipline demonstrated throughout fiscal 2021 resulted in a strong balance sheet and a conservation of cash that gives Espey the ability to weather the effects of the continuing pandemic, and positions us well to become profitable again and resume returns to shareholders we have historically achieved.  As always, I appreciate the continued support of our investor community, our customers and most importantly our employees that remain dedicated to our mission and committed to our success.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports third quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports third quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, May 17, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP)

announces results for the first nine months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, January 1 to March 31, 2021, were $4,205,068, compared with last year’s third quarter net sales of $6,191,300. Net loss for the quarter was $(1,070,114), $(0.44) per diluted share, as compared to net loss of $(103,765), $(0.04) per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

For the first nine months of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to March 31, 2021, net sales were $18.4 million, compared with $19.4 million for the first nine months of fiscal year 2020. Net loss for the period was $(1,061,297), $(0.44) per diluted share, compared with net income of $206,975, $0.09 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

The backlog for the Company was approximately $67.3 million at March 31, 2021, compared with last year’s backlog of $59.8 million at March 31, 2020. New orders in the first nine months of fiscal year 2021 were $30.8 million, compared with new orders in the first nine months of fiscal year 2020 of $33.6 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

The current quarter results reflect continuing issues associated with the pandemic’s impact on the industries we service. Direct impacts include the write-off of inventory under a commercial airline industry contract partially written down last quarter. We also incurred additional, unplanned investment in a new development program for submarines. A major subcontractor increased its cost to supply a critical component for the first production deliveries. This one-time increase was absorbed by Espey in order to remain a supplier for the submarine class over the coming decade. In addition, supply of electronic components, which were already in short supply prior to the pandemic, now have lead times stretching out to over a year, which moves revenue recognition into future quarters.

Unfortunately the pandemic also hit closer to home for us. Nearly a year into the pandemic, Espey suffered a COVID 19 outbreak in our facility. Following governmental guidelines, Espey closed the facility for ten days to allow the outbreak to run its course, but the impacts to our production line are still being felt more than a month later.

Based on the direct and indirect impacts the pandemic had on Espey in Q3, we currently believe annual sales will be lower than prior year sales and earnings-per share will be lower than the prior year, each reflecting a decrease from the original plan. However, new order bookings are expected to exceed $40 million for the current fiscal year and our backlog remains strong at over $67 million as of March 31, 2021.

Our customers, suppliers and the end users of our defense products are coming together in a collaborative environment to identify and address the common issues we are all facing. The challenges encountered over this fiscal year are not unique to Espey. The diversity of our offerings, and the relationships built over the last few years continue to allow our backlog to grow to record levels. We are positioned well for the coming fiscal years with stable programs and dedicated customers. We recognize and appreciate the continued support we have from our investors, and we are preparing to emerge from the challenges of the pandemic stronger than we have ever been.

Espey Suspends Dividend

Saratoga Springs, NY; March 9, 2021 – The Board of Directors of Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE AMERICAN: ESP) has suspended its quarterly dividend.

The Board of Directors of Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. has determined to suspend payment of a cash dividend which, in accordance with practice, would have been declared and paid prior to the end of this month. In making the determination, the Board balanced the objective of maintaining Espey’s strong position to address the business challenges caused by the global pandemic which continue to confront the industries the Company services, against the historical payment of consistent dividends to shareholders.

Patrick Enright, Espey’s President and CEO, explained the Board’s decision. “The continued decline of the rail industry, the virtual collapse of the commercial airline market, the global shortage of electronic
components and the erosion of on-time performance throughout the entire supply chain, will continue to contribute to delays in deliveries of product by the Company and put pressure on our earnings. We believe that conservative stewardship of our strong cash position will enable us to weather the current headwinds and to make timely and strategic investments in personnel and new programs. The Company has a robust backlog of orders and the Board determined that this approach will enable Espey to come through the pandemic in a strong position to deliver existing orders effectively and efficiently.”

Espey’s primary business is the development, design, and production of specialized military and industrial power supplies/transformers. The Company can be found on the Internet at www.espey.com.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports second quarter results

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports second quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, February 16, 2021 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for the first six months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, October 1 to December 31, 2020, were $6,962,065, compared with last year’s second quarter net sales of $7,286,674. Net loss for the quarter was $(181,006), $(0.08) per diluted share, as compared to net income of $228,964, $0.10 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

For the first six months of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to December 31, 2020, net sales were $14.2 million, compared with $13.2 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2020. Net income for the period was $8,817, $0.00 per diluted share, compared with net income of $310,740, $0.13 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

The backlog for the Company was $60.1 million at December 31, 2020, compared with last year’s backlog of $58.4 million at December 31, 2019. New orders in the first six months of fiscal year 2021 were $19.4 million, compared with new orders in the first six months of fiscal year 2020 of $26 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

The current quarter was a challenge with reduced sales and a product mix that netted overall lower margins, which were further exacerbated by a pandemic-related contract cancellation which resulted in us recognizing a loss for the quarter. Specific to the cancellation, we recognized an inventory write-off equivalent to fifty percent of the contract’s capitalized inventory value. Product under this engineering design and production contract was intended to be used in the commercial airline industry, which continues to be significantly impacted by the Coronavirus. As we work with our customer on the terms of the contract cancellation, we will look for alternate uses for this technology. Looking ahead, we currently believe annual sales will likely be in-line with the prior year sales but earnings-per share will be lower than prior year, a decrease from the original plan. However, new order bookings are expected to remain on target to reach $40 million for the current fiscal year and our backlog remains strong at $60.1 million as of December 31, 2020.

Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. reports first quarter results

Saratoga Springs, NY, November 16, 2020 – Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE American: ESP) announces results for its first three months of fiscal year 2021.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, July 1 to September 30, 2020, were $7,265,515, compared with last year’s first quarter net sales of $5,923,819. Net income for the quarter increased to $189,824, $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $81,776, $0.03 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

The backlog for the Company was $62 million at September 30, 2020, compared with last year’s backlog of $46.6 million at September 30, 2019. New orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2021 were $14.3 million, compared with new orders in the first three months of fiscal year 2020 of approximately $7.0 million.

Mr. Patrick Enright, President and CEO, commented,

Earnings for the quarter are up as we started to see the initial impact of targeted cost reductions which we put in place to offset the anticipated impact from necessary investments in new programs. An increase in sales, bolstered by strong build to print shipments and robust new sales order bookings, rounded out the quarter.

While the future of defense spending budgets remain uncertain due to both the administration transition in Washington D.C., and the likely re-assessment of Federal budget appropriations resulting from the effects of the continuing global pandemic, we remain cautiously optimistic that any impact to our anticipated new order bookings for the current fiscal year will be minimal. The growth strategy we have put in place by investing in new programs and diversifying our customer base, along with introducing targeted cost reductions, should put us in a good position as we navigate through these uncertain times. In the meantime, our primary focus continues to be on improving liquidity by the turning of inventory into sales.
