On 05/08/2014, Mechanical Technology announced its latest quarterly results. ALBANY, N.Y., May 08, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Mechanical Technology, Incorporated (MTI or the Company), (trading symbol:MKTY), a company engaged, through its subsidiary MTI Instruments, Inc. (MTI Instruments), primarily in the design, manufacture and sale of test and measurement instruments and systems that provide solutions for precision linear displacement, vibration measurement and balancing developed for markets that require the exacting measurement and control of products and processes in the development and implementation of automated manufacturing, assembly, and consistent operation of complex machinery, announces its 2014 first quarter results and business update.
Product revenue in MTI Instruments for the three months ended March 31, 2014 decreased by $819 thousand to $1.4 million from $2.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013. This decrease in product revenue was attributable to the lack of sales of accessory kits sales to the U.S. Air Force under an existing contract, no semi-automated wafer metrology tool sales and a decline in commercial aviation balancing system activity.
Gross profit, as a percentage of product revenue, increased to 58.1%, compared to 55.7% for the same period in 2013 due to lower product material costs and the composition of the product sales mix.
Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $432 thousand ($0.08 per share on a fully diluted basis) compared to net income of $86 thousand ($0.02 per share on a fully diluted basis) during the comparable 2013 period. This decrease in net income was primarily attributable to the decrease in product revenue.
According to Capital IQ, Mechanical Technology, Incorporated (MKTY) has a market cap of $5.57 million, an enterprise value of 4.83 million, and trailing 12 month revenues of $1.7 million.
Mechanical Technology (MTI) was founded in 1961 by two entrepreneurial engineers dedicated to developing and commercializing new technologies.
Currently, MTI is involved in the field of non-contact precision instrumentation through its wholly-owned subsidiary MTI Instruments, Inc. (MTII) and in the field of micro fuel cells, an equity investment MTI MicroFuel Cells Inc. (MTI Micro)
