FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

GENCOR RELEASES SECOND QUARTER FISCAL 2017 RESULTS

 

May 5, 2017 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) - Gencor Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: GENC) announced today net revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 increased $448,000 to $22.5 million from $22.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  Gross margin was 29.6% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared with 24.6% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $63,000 to $2,127,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, from $2,190,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $4.1 million compared to $2.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

 

The Company had non-operating income of $0.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to non-operating expense of $(0.3) million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  Net income was $3.4 million, or $0.24 per basic share and $0.23 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $1.6 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2017 the Company had net revenue of $38.3 million and net income of $4.8 million ($0.33 per basic share and diluted share) versus net revenue of $35.3 million and net income of $3.2 million ($0.22 per basic and diluted share) for the six months ended March 31, 2016.

 

At March 31, 2016, the Company had $114.2 million of cash and marketable securities compared to $104.2 million at September 30, 2016.  Net working capital was $120.5 million at March 31, 2017.  The Company has no short or long term debt.

 

John E. Elliott, Gencor’s CEO, commented, “We are pleased with the company’s continued strong performance.  We have been expanding our manufacturing production to meet the increasing demand for our equipment, without sacrificing operating income.

 

Second quarter net revenues of $22.5 million do not include $4.1 million of revenues that will be recognized in the third quarter.  These revenues include product that was finished but not shipped until April and contracts that did not reach the required percentage of completion level to be recognized in the quarter.

 

Despite higher steel prices, gross margins significantly improved to 29.6% from 24.6%.  The 500 basis point increase is attributable to a more efficient operation and full absorption of overhead.  Operating margins of 18.0% are the highest quarterly margins in the Company’s history.  Gencor is benefiting from a dedicated and well-trained workforce, producing equipment that has a reputation for superior quality.

 

The March ConExpo-Con/Agg show was a tremendous success, generating strong leads some of which have closed and others we expect to close.  Backlog of $42.9 million increased 35% year to year and is at the same level we otherwise started the fiscal year.  Historically, backlog declines in our second and third quarters as orders are usually filled and new orders are not received until the fall and early winter months.

 

The Company will continue to increase production and efficiency at both of its facilities and augment its workforce over the next few quarters by investing in technology which will enhance production in a number of areas.”

 

Gencor Industries is a diversified heavy machinery manufacturer of equipment used in the production of highway construction materials, synthetic fuels, and environmental control machinery and equipment used in a variety of industrial applications.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

GENCOR RELEASES FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2017 RESULTS

 

February 3, 2017 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) - Gencor Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: GENC) announced today net revenues increased 19% to $15.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 compared to $13.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.  Gross margins increased to 26.3% for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 from 24.8% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, due to increased revenues and cost absorption. Product engineering and development expenses increased $34,000 to $416,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 due to increased staffing. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased $405,000 to $2,190,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. Headcount additions and higher sales commissions contributed to most of the increase in SG&A expenses. Operating income for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 was $1.5 million or 9.8% of net revenues compared to operating income of $1.1 million or 8.4% of net revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company had non-operating income of $0.4 million compared to non-operating income of $1.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.  Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 was $1.4 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $1.6 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

 

At December 31, 2016, the Company had $107.0 million of cash and marketable securities, an increase of $2.8 million over the September 30, 2016 balance of $104.2 million. Net working capital was $116.8 million at December 31, 2016.  The Company had no short-term or long-term debt outstanding at December 31, 2016.

 

The Company’s backlog was $40.8 million at December 31, 2016 compared to $31.2 million at December 31, 2015.

 

John Elliott, Gencor’s CEO, commented, “Gencor began fiscal 2017 with the largest backlog of asphalt plants and components in the company’s history.  Many of our clients placed orders earlier in anticipation of 2017 construction work and beyond which has resulted in an increase in demand for our products.  Federal funds from the FAST ACT are being dispersed to state departments of transportation and should result in an increase in bidding activity for our domestic customers.

 

First quarter revenues represent solid growth from the previous year and a 151% increase from two years ago.  Revenues in our first quarter are often significantly lower than our second and third quarters as customers typically do not take delivery of equipment until late winter and spring.

 

In the first quarter Gencor delivered improved gross margins of 26.3% and managed operational expenses, which resulted in a 140 basis point increase in operating margins to 9.8%.

 

In January we implemented second shifts at both of our manufacturing facilities and are exploring avenues to significantly expand our production capabilities to meet the anticipated future demand for our products.  Potentially favorable new legislation could have a positive impact on Gencor’s performance in the future.  These include a proposed $1 trillion investment in domestic infrastructure, an immediate 100% tax deduction on all capital equipment purchases, and a proposed reduction in the corporate tax rate.

 

In March we will be exhibiting at the 2017 Conexpo-Con/Agg construction equipment show in Las Vegas where we anticipate significant interest in our products.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

GENCOR RELEASES FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL YEAR 2016 RESULTS

December 2, 2016 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) - Gencor Industries, Inc., (NASDAQ: GENC) announced today net revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 increased 79.3% to $14.8 million compared to $8.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.  Gross margin as a percentage of net revenue increased 80.3% to 24.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 from 13.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.  The increase in gross margin was due to increased production resulting in better overhead absorption.

 

Income from operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $1.0 million compared to loss of $(1.0) million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The Company had non-operating income of $0.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to a non-operating loss of $(3.1) million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The Company had a tax benefit of ($0.4) million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to a tax benefit of $(1.9) million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.  Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $1.7 million ($0.12 per basic and diluted share) compared to a net loss of $(2.2) million ($(0.15) per basic and diluted share) for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

 

Net revenue for the year ended September 30, 2016 increased 78.4% to $70.0 million compared to $39.2 million for the year ended September 30, 2015. Gross margin as a percentage of net revenue increased to 25.0% for the year ended September 30, 2016 from 19.1% for the year ended September 30, 2015. The Company had operating income for the year ended September 30, 2016 of $7.8 million compared to an operating loss of $(0.8) million for the year ended September 30, 2015.

 

The Company had non-operating income of $1.6 million for the year ended September 30, 2016 compared to a non-operating loss of $(2.8) million for the year ended September 30, 2015. The effective income tax rate for fiscal 2016 was 25.1% versus a tax benefit of (48.7%) in fiscal 2015. The Company’s net income was $7.0 million ($0.49 per basic share and $0.48 per diluted share) for the year ended September 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $(1.8) million ($(0.13) per basic and diluted share) for the year ended September 30, 2015.

 

At September 30, 2016 the Company had $104.1 million in cash and marketable securities, an increase of $8.6 million over the September 30, 2015 balance of $95.5 million. Net working capital was $115.2 million at September 30, 2016.  The Company has no short or long term debt.

 

E.J. Elliott, Gencor’s Chairman, commented, “Our industry has been rejuvenated and Gencor’s results are reflecting it.  Our fourth quarter 2016 revenues increased 79% which is on top of a 68% increase in revenues in the fourth quarter 2015.  What is typically our slowest quarter from a revenue perspective, this year we experienced an improvement.  Orders came in throughout the summer and customers were requesting deliveries into the fall and early winter months.

 

Gencor managed the 78% growth in fiscal 2016 revenues with good cost discipline.  This resulted in an increase in both gross margins and operating margins for the quarter and fiscal year.  Operating margins of 11% in fiscal 2016 reflect a significant improvement over recent years.  Net profit margins of 10% in fiscal 2016 were also notable.

 

Backlog going into fiscal year 2017 reflects an improved order flow which we expect to continue as the FAST Act has provided the secured funding that the industry needs. Our backlog at September 30, 2016 of $43 million represents a 131% increase from a year ago.  Order inquiry for our equipment across all regions of the country continues to be promising.

 

Our efficient operations and cost discipline should result in fiscal 2017 operating margins that continue to reflect the margin improvements we realized in fiscal 2016.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

GENCOR RELEASES THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2016 RESULTS

 

August 9, 2016 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) - Gencor Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: GENC) announced today net revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 increased 81.6% to $19.9 million from $10.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Gross margin increased to 25.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from 21.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased 16.2% to $1,979,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, from $1,703,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Increased sales expenses due to higher sales volume and trade show expenses, contributed to the increased SG&A expenses. Operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was $2,793,000 compared to $345,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Operating margin was 14.1% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to 3.2% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

 

The Company had non-operating income of $563,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to non-operating income of $77,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Net income was $2.1 million, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to $0.3 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2016, the Company had net revenue of $55.2 million and net income of $5.3 million ($0.56 per basic share and $0.55 per diluted share) versus net revenue of $31.0 million and net income of $0.4 million ($0.04 per basic and diluted share) for the nine months ended June 30, 2015.

 

At June 30, 2016, the Company had $96.5 million in cash and marketable securities compared to $95.5 million at September 30, 2015.  Net working capital was $112.2 million at June 30, 2016.  The Company has no short or long term debt.

 

E.J. Elliott, Gencor’s CEO & Chairman, commented, “I am pleased to report another quarter of significant growth for Gencor.   Revenues increased over 80% in the third quarter and 78% for the first nine months of fiscal 2016.  Demand for Gencor’s equipment continues to be robust.  Gross margins remain solid even though pricing is very competitive. SG&A as a percentage of revenue has dropped notably as a result of maintaining tight controls on general and administrative expenses.  We have increased sales efforts to capitalize on the greatly improved outlook for the domestic highway construction industry.

 

After the quarter ended, we shipped asphalt plants which were subsequently billed and collected in July.  Revenue from the sale of these plants was recognized during the third quarter of fiscal 2016.

 

A substantial portion of the $21 million current backlog will be recognized in the fourth quarter.  In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 we reported revenues of $8.2 million.  Thus, we are optimistic that the fourth quarter of 2016 will be another quarter of solid growth.  Furthermore, we have secured favorable raw material pricing contracts for the fourth quarter and going into fiscal 2017.  Therefore, we expect fourth quarter gross margins to be consistent with the most recent quarters.

 

Quoting activity for fiscal 2017 deliveries looks encouraging.  We continue to ramp up our operations to meet the increased demand for our equipment.”
