SECOND QUARTER 2013 RESULTS SUMMARY
Revenues for the second quarter of 2013 decreased to $12.2 million. This is compared with $16.4 million in revenues for the second quarter of 2012.
Gross profit in the quarter was $4.9 million, or 39.8% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $7.2 million, or 44.1% of revenues in the second quarter of 2012. The variance in the gross margin between the quarters reflects changes in the revenue mix.
Operating loss in the quarter was $1.1 million, compared to an operating profit of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.
Financial income, net in the quarter amounted to $411 thousand compared to financial income of $662 thousand in the second quarter of 2012.
Net loss in the quarter was $716 thousand or $0.04 per share, compared with net income of $938 thousand, or $0.06 per share, in the second quarter of 2012.
Cash and short term deposits net of current bank debt, as of June 30, 2013, were $34.2 million, or $2.12 per share, compared with cash and short term deposits net of current bank debt of $41.0 million, or $2.55 per share, on December 31, 2012. In the first half of 2013, Magal used $2.4 million in cash to acquire WebSilicon, a Cyber security company, and $0.7 million in capital investments.
Commenting on the results, Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal, said, “While we executed on some very large turnkey projects in 2011 and 2012, in 2013 our projects were of a smaller scale and less profitable. Global economic conditions continue to be challenging, however, we expect to see an improvement in our profitability in the second half of the year. We also see 2013 as a year of investment in Magal’s future. We continued to invest in CyberSeal, our new name for WebSilicon, in developing our PIDS portfolio, and in expanding our presence in key territories for our projects business.”
Continued Mr. Livneh, “We are taking advantage of our strong level of cash to bolster our presence in a number of emerging markets where site security is becoming ever more important. In particular, we are currently looking to strengthen our presence in Brazil and Africa and we have already started to reap the rewards from our increased presence in India. I remain excited about our future potential.”
