Management Commentary

Cemtrex Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil, commented on the results: “The second quarter was highlighted by new technology deployments and continued overall growth in our business. Revenue in the quarter grew 7% to $17.2 million, driven by strong demand for AIS products and services, with Industrial Services segment revenue increasing 47% to $9.1 million. For Vicon, although the quarter was affected by the delay of some of its projects, for the half fiscal year the segment is still growing year over year. Operating loss for the second quarter was $1.0 million, compared to operating income of $0.4 million a year ago, mainly due to decreased gross profit in our Security segment and increased payroll expenses. The operating loss for the six month period was $1.8 million compared to $1.5 million a year ago, despite the higher sales. However, these results include approximately $1 million in one-time expenses from employee related charges and legal expenses that we do not anticipate incurring in the future. Our goal of reaching a full year operating profit remains and we are working hard to drive revenue and maintain tight cost controls.

“Turning to our Security segment, Vicon continued to push the deployment of new technologies and products, including its innovative new cloud security platform Anavio. The platform enables users to manage their access control, video, and intercom via a single tool, so there’s no shuffling between separate security systems in order to achieve complete situational awareness and control. New features include face authentication that ensures only authorized people can access facilities, and a powerful ‘person of interest’ feature, whereby users can forensically track a specific person (or people) throughout a facility. We continue to make investments into our sales and marketing resources in the segment to drive further sales over the next several quarters. We also were able to reduce our inventory by over $1 million of this fiscal year as we strive to make our operations more efficient. With the launch of Anavio along with new technologies and continued improvements to our core software platform Valerus, we expect to drive further growth and see additional opportunity to grow gross margin in 2024.

“AIS and our Industrial services segment captured new orders from leading companies, building a pipeline of growth that we believe will produce a record year of revenue. We continue to believe with additional orders ahead, AIS has the potential to reach more than 30% annual revenue growth in FY’24. During the quarter AIS secured orders including a $1.6 million order for two relocation projects from a leading printing and graphics company, and a $0.5 million order to remove existing equipment for an engineering and construction company, affirm AIS’ commitment to delivering excellence across its service offerings.

“Looking ahead, strengthened by an improved balance sheet from our $10 million upsized underwritten public offering, of which a portion of the proceeds were used to pay off some of our indebtedness, we are well positioned to build on our momentum and remain focused on our goal to achieve positive operating income in fiscal year 2024 on a full year basis. We continue to explore acquisition opportunities that can enhance our market reach and service capabilities, and further drive growth in the months and years ahead,” concluded Govil.

Second Quarter FY 2024 Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023 was $17.2 million and $16.1 million, respectively, an increase of 7%. The Security segment revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2024, decreased by 18% to $8.1 million. The Security segment decrease was due to the delay of multiple projects for the Security segment’s products and services. The Industrial Services segment revenues for the second quarter increased by 47% to $9.1 million, mainly due to increased demand for the segment’s services as well as additional business from the Heisey acquisition completed during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2023.

Gross Profit for the three months ended March 31, 2024, was $6.9 million, or 40% of revenues, as compared to gross profit of $7.3 million, or 46% of revenues, for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Total operating expenses for three months ended December 31, 2023, were $8.0 million, compared to $7.0 million in the prior year’s quarter.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2024 was $1.0 million as compared to an operating income of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2023. The operating loss was primarily due to a decrease in gross profit in the Security segment and overall increased payroll expenses.

Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 was $1.6 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.5 million in 2023.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $4.1 million at March 31, 2024, as compared to $6.3 million at September 30, 2023.

Inventories decreased to $7.4 million at March 31, 2024, from $8.7 million at September 30, 2023.
