  • Operating income more than doubles; Achieved 18.4% operating margin in quarter from strong operating leverage and cost controls

  • Record backlog at quarter end expected to drive significant sales in fourth quarter


  • Expects full year 2013 revenue of $13.5 million to $14.5 million; Implies record-breaking sales of $6.2 million to $7.2 million in fourth quarter


DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Companies, Inc. (OTCQB:CAPC) ("Capstone" or the "Company"), a leader in the design and manufacture of specialty power failure lighting solutions and innovator of consumer safety and security products for the Hospitality, Retail and Institutional channels, reported unaudited third quarter and nine month year-to-date 2013 financial results.



Stewart Wallach, Capstone's CEO, commented, "We are realizing record-breaking results as our strategy to continually develop new products and broaden our distribution channels has established traction. Major retailers promoting our products tell us that Capstone's safety lighting innovations have been well received by their customers. We have gained more direct import sales opportunities as a result."



Record Third Quarter Results Driven by Strong Revenue


Revenue was $5.7 million, up 21% compared with the prior-year period. The year-round shelf presence of Capstone's safety lighting solutions, facilitated by the domestic distribution strategy that was put into place in 2012, has improved placement for the Company's products during the 2013 holiday shopping season as well.




Gross profit for the quarter was up over 50% to $1.6 million. Gross margin was 27.4%, up from 22.1% during the prior-year period. Higher revenue levels, productivity improvements and a more favorable product mix drove the margin improvement. 



Total operating expenses were $0.5 million down $0.1 million due to cost containment initiatives.  Operating income of $1.0 million more than doubled from prior-year levels.  Operating leverage on the higher revenue and slightly lower strategic investments drove increased operating margin of 18.4% during the third quarter, doubling the prior year's third quarter.     



Net income nearly tripled to $0.9 million from net income of $0.3 million in the prior-year period.



Year-to-Date Results



Revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 was $7.3 million, an increase of 26% from $5.9 million in the prior-year period. Increased presence at large retailers, the continued progression of the domestic strategy and the resumption of seasonal direct imports drove the revenue improvement.



Gross profit for the first nine months of 2013 of $1.9 million was up 46% over the same period in 2012. As a percent of sales, gross margin was 26.5%, a 380 basis point improvement year-over-year. 



Operating income was $0.3 million in the first nine months of 2013 compared with an operating loss of $0.2 million in the prior-year period. Net income improved measurably to just above breakeven compared with a net loss of $0.4 million in the first nine months of 2012.



Well Positioned for Record Fourth Quarter Revenue



Record net order backlog as of September 30, 2013 was $7.8 million.  Of that, backlog expected to convert to revenue during the remainder of 2013 is approximately $6.0 million to $6.5 million, driving expectations for record-breaking revenue in the fourth quarter. Direct import revenue related to the holiday shopping season is expected to account for 80% of fourth quarter revenue. Solid re-order activity was driven by strong results from the Company's domestic distribution strategy. Heavy demand from end users throughout the year drove more frequent holiday season promotions at our major retailer customers. It should be noted that certain factors beyond the control of Capstone, including shipping container availability and weather-related factors, can cause changes in the actual timing of shipments. As a result, such variations can impact the timing of backlog conversion to revenue.



Confirming our expectations, revenue for the month of October 2013 was $3.6 million. This was a dramatic improvement over the prior year, as revenue for the entire fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.5 million. Accordingly, revenue in this year's fourth quarter is expected to be at a record level, resulting in full year 2013 revenue between $13.5 million and $14.5 million.         



Mr. Wallach noted, "This is an exciting time for Capstone. The Company is more nimble than ever before, able to make smart decisions more efficiently and quickly. Product innovation, strategic distribution channel rationalization, and end user responsiveness are changing the financial profile of our Company into a long-term profitable growth story. Additionally, our product diversification strategy is progressing and we are beginning to see the early stages of the FIFA watch program develop.  We eagerly anticipate orders related to that program in the near future."



He added, "Our Capstone International team in China continues to expand manufacturing capabilities and explore product diversification opportunities by capitalizing on our strong reputation for safe and efficient manufacturing practices. The FIFA program is only the first of what we expect to be many successful milestones, and we are very confident with Larry Sloven, our President of Capstone International, leading and maximizing the growth potential of that part of our business."
