ELMA, N.Y., May 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE American – SVT) a designer and manufacturer of servo-control components and other advanced technology products announced today the results of its operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
“The aviation industry continues to be impacted by COVID-19,” said Kenneth D. Trbovich, CEO and Chairman of the Board. “The deferral of customer orders at the ATG resulted in a decline in revenue for the first quarter of 2021. While the economic outlook for the remainder of 2021 remains uncertain, we continue to adjust our operations while seeking to retain our skilled employees that we believe will be critical to our success as business conditions normalize.”
In the first quarter of 2021, Servotronics reported net income of $541,000 (or $0.23 per share Basic and $0.22 Diluted) on consolidated revenues of $9,060,000 as compared to net income of $1,898,000 (or $0.80 per share Basic and $0.79 Diluted) on revenues of $15,448 for the comparable period ended March 31, 2020.
The decrease in revenue for the three month period ended in March 31, 2021 when compared to the same three month period ended March 31, 2020 is attributable to a decrease in units shipped at the ATG of approximately $7,055,000 offset slightly by an increase in price/mix of units shipped of approximately $464,000. Additionally, there was an increase in shipments at the CPG of approximately $149,000 and an increase of approximately $54,000 in price/mix of units shipped as compared to the same period ended March 31, 2020.
Net income at the ATG was lower by approximately $1,470,000 while the net loss at the CPG decreased by approximately $113,000. The consolidated decrease in net income is primarily the result of decreases in revenue partially offset by the employee retention credit and decreases in selling, general and administrative expenses.
As permitted under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, the Company recognized a $1,730,000 employee retention credit (ERC) during the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The ERC is a refundable tax credit against certain employment taxes and is recognized in other income.
The Company is composed of two groups – the ATG and the CPG. The ATG primarily designs, develops and manufactures servo controls and other components for various commercial and government applications (i.e., aircraft, jet engines, missiles, manufacturing equipment, etc.). The CPG designs and manufactures cutlery, bayonets, pocket knives, machetes and combat knives, survival, sporting, agricultural knives and other edged products for both commercial and government applications.
