Sparton Corporation Reports Fiscal 2018 First Quarter Results

Sparton Corporation (SPA) today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018 ended October 1, 2017.

First Quarter Financial Results and Highlights

Joseph J. Hartnett, Interim President & CEO, commented, "As a result of our recent growth in new program wins, we experienced some interruptions in production and increased inventory levels which is typical with new program introductions. We believe that the backlog from these programs has us positioned for growth in the upcoming quarters and beyond."

Joseph G. McCormack, Senior Vice President & CFO, commented, "We experienced net cash outflows and increasing debt in the quarter. This was principally the result of the timing of a payment from the U.S. Navy, significant transaction-related costs as a result of the signing of the merger agreement during the quarter, increasing inventories as a result of the new product introductions, as well as typical year-end compensation related payments. The underlying fundamentals of the business remain unchanged and we expect to return to positive free cash flows and reducing our debt levels in the second quarter."

Consolidated:

-- Net sales of $82.8 million

-- Gross profit margin of 17.6%

SG&A expenses of $15.2 million or 18.4% of sales; adjusted SG&A of $12.9 million, 15.5% of sales

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Sparton Corporation has provided certain non-GAAP financial measures as additional information for its operating results. These measures have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from measures used by other companies. Whenever we use non-GAAP financial measures, we designate these measures, which exclude the effects of certain expenses and income, as "adjusted" and provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. The non-GAAP financial measures eliminate or add certain items of expense and income from total operating expense and income taxes. Management believes that this presentation is helpful to investors in evaluating the current operational and financial performance of our business and facilitates comparisons to historical results of operations. Management discloses this information along with a reconciliation of the comparable GAAP amounts to provide access to the detail and nature of adjustments made to GAAP financial results. While some of these excluded items have been periodically reported in our statements of operations, their occurrence in future periods depends on future business and economic factors, among other evaluation criteria, and the occurrence of such events and factors may frequently be beyond the control of management.

When we calculate adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA and other adjustments to the statements of income, we exclude certain expenses and income because we believe that they are not related directly to the underlying performance of our fundamental business operations. We exclude these measures when reviewing financial results and for business planning. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financial statements, these transactions may limit the comparability of our fundamental operations with prior and future periods. We believe EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are commonly used by financial analysts and others in the industries in which the Company operates and, thus, provides useful information to investors. The Company does not intend, nor should the reader consider, EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA to be an alternative to operating income, net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other items calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable with other companies. Accordingly, the measurement has limitations depending on its use.
