Commenting on the Companys 2016 results, Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr. stated, All of the arrows in our statement of operations and, for the first time in several years, our balance sheet as well, are pointed north. In addition, our share price from the start of the year to the end of the year moved from $3.70 per share to $5.02 per share, an increase of 35.7%.

Mr. Ferrantino continued, Although I am pleased with the increase in our share price I am still not satisfied, so our work continues. Our strategy is clear and consistent. We are about growth, both as it relates to our organic strategy of introducing new market driven products, as well as our initiative to add on synergistic pieces to LGL like the purchase of Precise Time and Frequency, Inc. (PTF) in September. PTF added a small amount to our revenue in 2016 and incurred a small loss due to one-time costs related to moving the business over to our systems. I do expect that in Q1 2017 PTF will be accretive.

In closing, Mr. Ferrantino added, To our shareholders who have stood by us, thank you for your patience. All of us at LGL and our subsidiaries are doing our best to see you are properly rewarded. And to our new shareholders and potential shareholders, I believe our future is only limited by our bandwidth which continues to broaden every year.

Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP(generally accepted accounting principles) basis, the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items we believe are discrete events which have a significant impact on comparable GAAP measures and could distort an evaluation of our normal operating performance. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings or diluted earnings per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
