(NASDAQ: CVV – News) CVD Equipment Corporation, a leading provider of custom chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
Having determined that larger quarters were required to facilitate the growth of CVD, First Nano and the Application Laboratory, the Company is replacing its two Long Island buildings with a new building (also on Long Island) which will double the facility size to 130,000 square feet. As a result of management focusing its efforts to relocate to the new facility in Central Islip, New York, revenue, net income and backlog for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 have all decreased compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
Revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4,696,000 and $18,945,000 respectively, compared to $8,844,000 and $22,558,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $180,000 and $1,229,000, or $0.03 per share both basic and diluted for the three month period and $0.21 per share basic and $0.20 per share diluted for the nine month period respectively. This is compared to $1,239,000 and $2,704,000, $.21 per share basic and $0.20 diluted for the three month period ended September 30, 2011 and $0.51 per share basic and $0.49 per share diluted for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Our backlog at September 30, 2012 was $8,692,000 compared to $16,198,000 at December 31, 2011.
The building that housed CVD’s Application Laboratory was sold in April, 2012, resulting in a capital loss of approximately $694,000 or $0.12 per share pre-tax for the current nine month period. Sale of the 2nd building currently housing CVD/First Nano is in contract, expected to generate a capital gain, and scheduled to close on or around December 31, 2012. The Company anticipates the net effect of these two real estate transactions, when completed, will result in an overall net capital gain.
In addition to the condensed statement of operations in accordance with GAAP, we have included a pro-forma statement of income from operations excluding the effect of the capital loss on the sale of the building which housed the Application Laboratory.
Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Starting in Q2 we re-directed some of our manpower toward the new facility into which we will start moving shortly. In Q3 we expanded our sales effort with additional representatives, sales assistants, and direct sales personnel. Although we have allowed our backlog to decrease to a more manageable level to ease the transition into our new quarters, based on the continuing high level of interest in our products, we are confident that orders will increase in 2013. Space limitations in our current facility hindered our ability to take on larger size orders, expand overall production and add additional engineering and management personnel to support our growth. The new 2 times larger facility will enable our growth to continue both in equipment and materials with no significant increase in operating costs.”
