Trans-Lux Reports Positive Net Income And Strong EBITDA For The Second Quarter

NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2016 /PR Newswire/ — Trans-Lux Corporation (OTC: TNLX) (“Trans-Lux” or the “Company”), a leading supplier of Digital Displays and next generation LED lighting, reports the financial results for the second quarter and the six months ended June 30, 2016. Trans-Lux President and Chief Executive Officer J.M. Allain made the announcement.

Second Quarter 2016

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016 totaled $5.8 million, compared with $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Trans-Lux recorded income for the second quarter of 2016 of $82,000 ($0.02 per share) compared to a loss of $582,000 (loss of $0.35 per share) in the second quarter of 2015. The Company had EBITDA of $490,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared with $122,000 for the same period in 2015. Improved gross margins and lower operating expenses were the primary reasons for the improved operating results and net income in the second quarter, despite slightly lower revenues.

In addition to our improved second quarter, the Company had a number of recent successes in July 2016. The Company completed a successful financing package for up to $3 million in a revolving credit line for working capital and a $1 million term loan for an upcoming equipment purchase. The Company also redeemed $353,000 of high interest Notes & Debentures, which had matured in 2012, at a significant discount, reducing current debt and accrued interest from our balance sheet. “These improvements to operating results, working capital liquidity and our financial statements position us well for continued growth,” said Mr. Allain.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2016

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 totaled $9.6 million, down from $10.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Loss for the first half of 2016 was $1.0 million (loss of $0.66 per share), compared with a loss of $1.3 million (loss of $0.75 per share) in the first half of 2015. The Company had negative EBITDA of $148,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016, compared with positive EBITDA of $105,000 for the same period in 2015. Despite slightly lower revenues, both gross profit and gross margin were higher in 2016. Lower selling, general and administrative expenses also contributed to the improved operating results. “As we move into the second half of 2016, our continued primary focus will be increasing bottom line profits by expanding our product line, promoting our brand and establishing new channel partners,&rdquo said Mr. Allain.
