Giga-tronics Reports Results for the Fourth Quarter and FY 2014 (Periods Ending March 29, 2014)

June 23, 2014

SAN RAMON, Calif., June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (Nasdaq:GIGA) reported today net sales of $2.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $2.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Net sales for fiscal 2014 were $13.3 million, compared to $14.2 million for fiscal 2013. The decreases in net sales were primarily due to fiscal 2013 order fulfillment for the legacy SCPM switch product which was subsequently sold to Teradyne in the first month of fiscal 2014.

Net loss for the fourth quarters of fiscal 2014 and 2013 were $1.3 million and $1.6 million, or $0.25 and $0.31 per fully diluted share, respectively. Net loss for fiscal years 2014 and 2013 were $3.7 million and $4.2 million, or $0.74 and $0.84 per fully diluted share, respectively. The decrease in net loss in fiscal 2014 was primarily due to the net gain recorded from selling the legacy SCPM switch product to Teradyne. Over the past several years the Company has made a significant investment in the development of a new product platform, and delays in its completion contributed to the losses in fiscal 2014 and the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

On June 2, 2014, the Company announced a sole-source multi-year agreement with a major aerospace company to develop a variant of its high performance fast tuning YIG filters for a third aircraft platform.In connection with the agreement, the Company has received orders valued at approximately $6.9 million for the non-recurring engineering and for the delivery of a limited number of flight-qualified prototype hardware.The majority of the non-recurring engineering services are expected to be performed over the next twelve months. The Company expects to finalize in the next few months a multi-year follow-on order for approximately $10.0 million associated with the production units, which are anticipated to start shipping in April of 2016.

The Company also announced on June 17, 2017 the receipt of an order from the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center in Maryland valued at approximately $2.4 million associated with its Model 8003 Precision Scalar Analyzer product.The Company anticipates shipping the equipment to the Navy over the next six months.

Mr. John Regazzi, the Company's CEO stated, "While there will continue to be financial challenges for us in the quarters ahead, we are greatly encouraged by the recent YIG filter contract award along with the Naval Air Warfare Center order. We anticipate these orders will significantly contribute to improving the Company's financial performance during fiscal 2015."

Mr. Regazzi also commented on the Company's new product platform, "Today there is a great deal of excitement here at Giga-tronics as the initial units of our new product platform are being assembled.Although we have experienced delays in its completion, we see this new platform as key to the Company's long term growth and improved operating performance in fiscal 2015 and beyond."
