GARDNER, Mass., Sept. 28, 2021 /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, 2021.

Fourth quarter fiscal 2021 highlights:

  • Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $2.67 million compared to $2.24 million in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year, an increase of 19%.
  • Gross margins for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 were 29% compared to 29% in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year; and compared to 33% for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
  • Net Loss of $442,443 during the quarter included $419,678 of stock-based compensation. This compared to a loss of $323,085, including $64,334 of stock-based compensation in the same quarter of the previous fiscal year.

Fiscal year 2021 highlights:

  • Revenue for the year ended June 30, 2021 was a record $10.67 million compared to $9.92 million in the previous fiscal year.
  • Gross margins for the year ended June 30, 2021 were 32% compared to 34% in the previous fiscal year.
  • Net Loss of $102,826 during the year included $808,962 of Other Income due to the forgiveness of the SBA PPP Loan as well as $733,930 of stock-based compensation. This compared to a loss of $1,426,149, including $547,345 of stock-based compensation in the previous fiscal year.
  • The Company's cash position remains strong with an ending balance for the year of $862,000.

"I am extremely pleased with the overall performance of Precision Optics in fiscal 2021, highlighted by record annual revenues and a product pipeline that is larger than at any point in the Company's history," commented Precision Optics' CEO, Joseph Forkey. "We continued to focus on operational efficiencies, with operating expenses down 9% compared to fiscal 2020, culminating in an annual improvement to adjusted EBITDA of nearly $750,000. We see this as a tremendous achievement in the face of a rather difficult environment last year for a number of our customers, and our associated products, in the medical device space due to the pandemic.  Our ability to back-fill some of these reductions in production with new development work in our product pipeline should position us well for fiscal 2022 and beyond."

"Despite the impact the pandemic has had on certain surgical applications in the near-term, the long-term market for these products and others that require our capabilities remains extremely robust. Both large, established corporate players, and well-funded startup companies, are aggressively pursuing development efforts for next generation applications that leverage the unique and proprietary micro-optic and 3D capabilities we provide. Our end-to-end solutions allow these visionary companies to innovate in ways they are unable to achieve on their own. Over the past few years, this increasing awareness of our enabling capabilities is gaining traction as our product development pipeline of projects continues to expand. Unique to our business model is the ability to attract new product engagements that generate revenue initially through engineering development work and later through long-term production that can support stable growth for many years."

Dr. Forkey concluded, "With a strong fiscal 2021 behind us, we look forward to building upon this momentum going forward."
