Dynasil Corporation of America Reports Fiscal Year 2017 Financial Results

NEWTON, Mass., Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a developer and manufacturer of optics and photonics products, optical detection and analysis technology and components for the homeland security, medical and industrial markets, today announced earnings attributable to common stockholders of $2.2 million and $0.13 per common share for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 and the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K.  

"For fiscal year 2017, we are reporting a $1.6 million increase in net income, or $0.09 per common share, for 2017 over the prior year," said CEO Peter Sulick. "As our revenue decreased 14% overall in 2017, our positive bottom line results are largely attributable to a U.S. income tax benefit resulting from the tax deconsolidation of Xcede Technologies, Inc., the Company's tissue sealant technology development joint venture."

"The $6.2 million decrease in revenue resulted from a $4.4 million decrease in revenue in our Optics segment which was largely due to a reduction in orders from production adjustments by two of our largest customers. We anticipate both of these customers to increase their orders in fiscal year 2018. Our Contract Research segment had a $1.8 million, or 9%, decrease in revenue largely from the presidential administration transition during the year. Both contracts awards and funding were significantly delayed during this transitional time.  However, these delays were resolved during our fourth quarter and we do not anticipate this situation will reoccur in fiscal year 2018."

"Despite the decrease in revenue, we have several causes to be optimistic in our new fiscal year. The Contract Research revenue backlog increased to $33.2 million at September 30, 2017, up from the September 30, 2016 level of $30 million. Additionally, gross profit as a percent of revenue for the Contract Research segment improved to 41% in fiscal year 2017, compared to 38% in fiscal year 2016 as a result of an increase in the sales of commercial products during fiscal year 2017, which carry a stronger profit margin."   

"Xcede Technologies, Inc. ("Xcede"), our majority-owned subsidiary, continues to make great progress in developing its tissue sealant product, the Xcede Patch, and is on track to begin first-in-human trials in 2018," added Mr. Sulick. "In November 2016, Cook Biotech Inc. committed to manage the Xcede Patch first-in-human clinical study on behalf of Xcede. Xcede is on a development track to complete first-in-human trials within the next 18 months."  

Dynasil earned net income of $1.9 million in 2017 compared to a net income of $0.3 million in 2016. Net income included net losses of approximately $1.4 million and $2.1 million in 2017 and 2016, respectively, associated with research and start-up costs of Xcede. Because Dynasil has voting control of Xcede via its stock ownership, it is required to be included in our consolidated net income for financial reporting purposes. As of September 30, 2017, Dynasil owned 83% of Xcede's common stock and approximately 61% of Xcede's outstanding equity.
