FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 6, 2020 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) – Gencor Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: GENC) announced today net revenues of $22.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to $18.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Gross margins were 23.5% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to 25.2% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, as the gross profit margins achieved in the current quarter were impacted by a higher percentage of revenues generated from plant and equipment sales compared with parts sales, which have a higher gross margin. Product engineering and development expenses decreased $32,000 to $849,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, on reduced travel expenses. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased $51,000 to $2,522,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Increases in sales headcount resulted in the increased SG&A expenses. Operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 increased 44.1% to $2.0 million compared with $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, on higher revenues and production volumes.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company had non-operating income of $3.4 million compared to non-operating income of $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Included in non-operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were net realized and unrealized gains on marketable securities of $2.9 million, due to recovery in the domestic equity markets after the initial declines from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the prior quarter. The effective income tax rate for the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was 20.0%. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $4.3 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.
For the nine months ended June 30, 2020 the Company reported net revenue of $67.0 million and net income of $6.2 million ($0.42 per diluted share) versus net revenue of $66.8 million and net income of $10.2 million ($0.69 per diluted share) for the nine months ended June 30, 2019. Compared to the prior year, lower gross profit margins and net realized and unrealized losses on marketable securities contributed to the lower net income in the nine months ended June 30, 2020.
At June 30, 2020, the Company had $124.2 million of cash and marketable securities compared to $115.6 million at September 30, 2019. Net working capital was $154.7 million at June 30, 2020. The Company had no short-term or long-term debt outstanding at June 30, 2020.

John Elliott, Gencor’s CEO, stated, “Gencor performed well in this challenging market environment associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to demonstrate the operating durability of our business as well as our ability to achieve solid profitability and cash flow. While there is still significant uncertainty around demand, the shape of the economic recovery and the continued impact of the pandemic, we are encouraged by the results we have achieved in the first six months of the calendar year.
Third quarter fiscal 2020 revenues were well above third quarter of fiscal 2019. Production and deliveries were minimally affected by COVID-19-related precautions in the current quarter.
The FAST Act is scheduled to expire in September 2020. Currently there is no replacement or extension of the FAST Act. While the economic outlook remains uncertain, by producing in line with customer demand and aggressively managing costs, I am confident Gencor will successfully navigate these challenging times.”
