Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 2.02 Results of Operation and Financial Condition.

NEWARK, N.Y. -- October 31, 2013 -- Ultralife Corporation (NASDAQ:
ULBI) reported operating income from continuing operations of $0.7 million on revenue of $20.4 million for the quarter ended September 29, 2013. For the third quarter of 2012, the company reported operating income from continuing operations of $1.8 million on revenue of $26.2 million.

Discontinued operations reflect the operating results of RedBlack, which was sold on September 28, 2012. All revenue, gross margin and operating expense amounts presented below represent results from continuing operations.

Revenue was $20.4 million, compared to $26.2 million for the third quarter of 2012, a 22% decline. Battery & Energy Products sales declined by $3.1 million to $13.5 million, primarily due to the continued slowdown in the government and defense order rate for rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries. Communications Systems sales were $6.9 million, compared to $9.5 million for the same period last year, a decrease of $2.7 million. Included in the prior year Communications Systems' sales was $3.4 million related to the final shipment of SATCOM systems units. Absent the SATCOM shipment, Communications Systems sales increased 11% reflecting higher shipments of amplifiers to US and international customers.

Gross profit was $6.1 million, or 30.1% of revenue, compared to $8.2 million, or 31.4% of revenue, for the same quarter a year ago, a decrease of 130 basis points. Battery & Energy Products' gross margin was 26.7%, compared to 28.7% last year, a 200 basis point decrease reflecting lower overhead absorption as a consequence of strict inventory control. Communications Systems' gross margin was 36.9%, compared to 36.1% last year, an increase of 80 basis points reflecting favorable mix.

Operating expenses declined $1.0 million or 15% to $5.5 million, compared to $6.5 million a year ago, primarily due to reductions in general and administrative expense and continued focus on controlling discretionary spending. As a percent of revenue, operating expenses were 26.9%, compared to 24.7% a year ago.

Operating profit was $0.7 million, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2012, reflecting lower gross profit including the impact of the SATCOM shipment, partially offset by operating expense reductions. Operating margin was 3.2%, compared to 6.7% for the year-earlier period.

Net income from continuing operations was $0.6 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.09 per share, for the third quarter of 2012. Net income from discontinued operations was $0.0 million, or $0.00 per share, compared to $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, for the same quarter last year.

For 2013, although the Company's pending project pipelines are growing, the continuing U.S. Government budget challenges have muddled our predictability of converting Communication Systems' sales opportunities in the timeframe originally forecasted. Primarily for this reason, management now expects that an overall year-over-year revenue decline could be approximately 20%, with Communications Systems revenues down in a comparable range for the year versus our prior expectations. Given the potential for reduced revenue, management now expects to report operating results in the range of breakeven to a modest operating loss for the year.

Management cautions that the timing of orders and shipments may cause variability in quarterly results.
