ORLANDO, Fla.: M-tron Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: MPTI) (“Company” or “MtronPTI”) announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023. Management will host an earnings call on Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at 10:30am EST.

  • Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, were $41.2 million, an increase of $9.3 million, or 29.3%, from $31.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.
  • Consolidated gross margin improved to 40.7% for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to 35.6% for the prior year.
  • Order backlog was $47.8 million, an increase of 3.6% compared to $46.2 million as of December 31, 2022.
  • Diluted net income per share for the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 was $1.28 and $0.67, respectively.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP measure, was $7.7 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 versus $4.0 million for the prior year.

Michael Ferrantino, MtronPTI’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “MtronPTI had a great first year as a public company. We focused on improving our topline results each quarter while maintaining and improving margins wherever possible and maintaining our vigilance on general and administrative costs. We look forward to the continuing success of MtronPTI while helping our motivated employees and valued customers reach their goals in 2024 and beyond.”

Results from Operations

MtronPTI’s portfolio is divided into three product groupings, Frequency Control, Spectrum Control and Integrated Microwave Assemblies, and has expanded from primarily crystal-based components to include higher levels of integration, advanced materials science, cavity-based products, and various types of compensation methods employing integrated circuits and other methods to create products geared for applications that require high reliability in harsh environments. These products are differentiated by their precise level of accuracy, stability over time and within harsh environments, and very low phase noise.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023 were $41,168,000, an increase of $9,323,000, or 29.3%, from $31,845,000 for the year ended December 31, 2022. The increase in revenue reflects strong aerospace and defense product shipments.

Gross margin improved to 40.7% for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to 35.6% for the prior year. Gross margins improved over last year reflecting the increased business volume and the effects of product mix changes, offset by inflationary headwinds due to labor and materials cost increases.

As of December 31, 2023, our order backlog was $47,831,000, an increase of 3.6% compared to $46,180,000 as of December 31, 2022. In 2023 our book to bill ratio was greater than 1, at 1.04, with 2023 bookings of $42,818,000 following very strong 2022 bookings of $48,586,000. Our sales funnel continues to be strong as we continue with our new product offering and provide excellent technical and customer service to our customers.

During the fourth quarter, all MtronPTI full-time employees below the executive level were issued a one-time stock option grant based on their respective years of service. The purpose of the grant was to reward employees for their past contribution to the Company and serves to align employee interests with those of our stockholders. The stock option grant vested immediately, and with a strike price of $36.06 and a life of three years, the Company recorded $2,013,000 of stock-based compensation expense related to its 183,300 stock options granted.

The Company reported an operating income of $4,299,000 for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to operating income of $2,875,000 for the year ended December 31, 2022. This increase reflects the higher revenues and effects from product mix changes, offset by increased engineering, selling and administrative expenses, which were 30.3% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to 26.6% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022. Excluding the $2,013,000 one-time expense for stock options, engineering, selling and administrative expenses would have been 25.4% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2023, an improvement over the 26.6% recorded for the prior year.

Quarterly, income before income taxes grew incrementally each quarter during 2024, from $719,000 in Q1, 2024, to $2,046,000 for Q3, 2024. Without the impact from the $2,013,000 one-time expense for stock options, income before income taxes for Q4, 2024 would have been $2,066,000, which would compare favorably to the $2,595,000 that was recorded for the entire 2022 year.

Net income was $3,489,000 for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to $1,798,000 for the year ended December 31, 2022. Basic and diluted net income per share for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $1.29 and $1.28, respectively, versus $0.67 per share for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP measure, was $2,425,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 versus $1,114,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2022, a portion of which was reported on a standalone basis. Adjusted EBITDA was $7,692,000 for the year ended December 31, 2023 versus $4,008,000 for the year ended December 31, 2022, a portion of which was reported on a standalone basis. Adjusted EBITDA excluded excess Separation costs of $28,000 for 2023 and $219,000 for 2022. Included within the non-cash stock compensation is $2,013,000 for the impact of the one-time employee stock option grant. Note that adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2022 does not include any adjustments for the potential impact from the additional costs of being a publicly traded company. Management calculated the incremental direct costs of being a public company which do not have any comparable amounts in the prior year when results were presented partially on a standalone basis at $107,000 and $842,000 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023, respectively.

MtronPTIs Separation

On October 7, 2022, the separation of the MtronPTI business from The LGL Group, Inc. ("LGL" or "LGL Group") was completed (the "Separation") and the Company became an independent, publicly traded company trading on the NYSE American under the stock symbol "MPTI." The Company’s financial results for periods up to the Separation represent combined financial statements prepared on a “carve-out” basis. The Company’s financial statements and results for the periods after the Separation are consolidated and presented based on the results of the Company as a standalone company.
