Precision Optics Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

 

GARDNER, Mass., Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Precision Optics Corporation, Inc. (OTCQB: PEYE), a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced optical instruments for the medical and defense industries, announced operating results on an unaudited basis for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.

The Company previously announced preliminary fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020 revenue on August 13, 2020.

Fourth quarter fiscal 2020 highlights:

  • Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $2.24 million compared to $2.38 million in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year, a decrease of 6%. Revenue for the quarter was down year over year on an actual and pro forma basis due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Gross margins for the quarter were 29% compared with 31% in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year. This decline in margin was primarily driven by lower revenue and impacts of COVID-19.
  • Operating expenses decreased more than $300,000 during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Net loss of $323,085 during the quarter included $75,567 of stock-based compensation.
  • The Company's cash balance at June 30, 2020 was $1.1 million reflecting the Company's aggressive cash management initiatives, coupled with proceeds from an equity financing in April 2020 and receipt of funding under the PPP.

Fiscal year 2020 highlights:

  • Revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 was $9.9 million compared to $6.8 million in the previous fiscal year, an increase of 46% driven primarily by Ross Optical operating as a division of Precision Optics for the entire year. Revenue for the year was down year over year on a pro forma basis due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Gross margins for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 were 34% compared to 31% for the previous fiscal year.
  • Net loss of $1,426,150 during the fiscal year included $547,345 of stock-based compensation.
  • On April 14, 2020 the Company raised $250,000 from existing accredited investors with the sale of 200,000 shares at a purchase price of $1.25 per share. On May 7, 2020 the Company received an $809,000 loan from the Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program.

Precision Optics' CEO, Joseph Forkey, commented, "Our financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year were consistent with our preliminary results announced in mid-August, reflecting the positive contributions from our Ross Optical acquisition offset by impacts to certain aspects of our operations due to COVID-19. We believe the near-term disruptions that we experienced in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2020 due to COVID-19 have begun to subside with an expectation that we will see improvements in first quarter fiscal 2021 revenue and gross margins, as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020."

Dr. Forkey continued, "Our three recently commercialized production programs all continue at levels similar to recent months and we are advancing other programs in development toward production. There are also a number of new opportunities we are pursuing with combined significant revenue potential. One program including prototype deliveries for a new defense / aerospace customer is a great example of the successful integration of Ross Optical. There are clearly macro challenges in the economy but we believe continued execution in our core business plus investment in high opportunity products and markets will lead to strong growth in our business going forward."
