76 Days ago

ORLANDO, Fla., May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gencor Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: GENC) announced today net revenues of $26.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to $30.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  Gross margins increased 880 basis points to 37.2% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from 28.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, as a result of the Company’s cost management and operational improvements implemented over the past few years, along with an improved pricing environment and an increase in parts sales. Product engineering and development expenses increased $65,000 to $823,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses decreased $447,000 to $2,474,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Reduced sales commissions and advertising and trade show expenses resulted in the decrease in SG&A expenses.  Operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was up 30% to $6.6 million compared with $5.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, the Company had non-operating income of $2.7 million compared to non-operating expense of $0.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  Included in non-operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 were net realized and unrealized gains on marketable securities of $2,204,000, due to the increase in the domestic equity markets in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.  The effective income tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was 20.0% versus 20.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 reflecting the lower corporate tax rates to comply with the recently enacted U.S. tax law, Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”). Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was up 98% to $7.5 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, compared with net income of $3.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

For the six months ended March 31, 2019 the Company had net revenue of $48.0 million and net income of $7.8 million ($0.53 per diluted share) versus net revenue of $54.0 million and net income of $6.1 million ($0.41 per diluted share) for the six months ended March 31, 2018.

At March 31, 2019, the Company had $114.7 million of cash and marketable securities compared to $112.1 million at September 30, 2018. Net working capital was $143.8 million at March 31, 2019.  The Company had no short-term or long-term debt outstanding at March 31, 2019.

The Company’s backlog was $24.2 million at March 31, 2019 compared to $45.6 million at March 31, 2018.

John Elliott, Gencor’s CEO, commented, “Second quarter activity levels were moderately lower compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018, when we realized record quarterly revenues of $30.8 million.  Although revenues were lower, we were able to achieve record gross margins and operating margins in the quarter and first half of fiscal 2019. 

Our profit improvement was the result of a favorable pricing environment, stable steel prices, solid execution in production, and continued effective cost management.

Gencor’s business has normalized from the record volumes in fiscal 2018.  Our customers are busy and benefitting from both the FAST Act and the numerous states that have increased their infrastructure funding and spending. We anticipate asphalt plant orders to follow the seasonal pattern of prior years where a majority of the plant sales occurred in the fall and winter months.

Gencor received a higher than normal level of interest at the World of Asphalt show in February.  We expect to close a couple of the quotes in the next few months.

We have been developing a new product line which should expand our customer base and geographic reach in the future. I am proud of the hard work and dedication of our Gencor employees that delivered these solid results. We continue to identify opportunities to improve our execution and remain focused on delivering strong performance.”

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