IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2021 / PRO-DEX, INC. (NASDAQ:PDEX) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2021 third quarter ended March 31, 2021. The Company also filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.
Quarter Ended March 31, 2021
Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $3.2 million, or 38%, to $11.7 million from $8.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, due primarily to increased sales of $2.6 million of our thoracic driver, which was launched in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year, as well as increased sales of $923,000 of our CMF drivers, which we sell to various distributors including to our existing largest customer.
Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased $1.2 million, or 37%, to $4.4 million from $3.2 million for the same period in fiscal 2020.
Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 increased $1.0 million, or 67%, compared to the same period in fiscal 2021 mostly due to increased investment in internal product development and stock compensation expense.
Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $2.0 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2020.
Nine Months Ended March 31, 2021
Net sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 increased $4.9 million, or 21%, to $28.6 million from $23.7 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, due primarily to increased sales of $4.9 million of our thoracic driver, which was launched in the third quarter of the prior fiscal year.
Gross profit for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 increased $1.6 million, or 18%, compared to the same period in fiscal 2020. The gross profit increase is directly related to our 21% increase in revenue and our ability to better absorb our fixed manufacturing costs.
Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 increased 63% to $6.5 million from $4.0 million in the prior fiscal year's corresponding period, mostly due to increased investment in internal product development and sustaining engineering of $1.7 million and increased general and administrative expenses of $0.9 million, including stock based compensation expense and operating costs related to our new commercial building.
Net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 was $3.6 million, or $0.90, per diluted share, compared to $3.6 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in fiscal 2020.
'We are extremely pleased with our third quarter results.

We have come very far as a company and we could not be more pleased,' said the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer Richard L. ('Rick') Van Kirk. 'While not every quarter will set records, we will strive to execute properly and continue to drive year over year growth.'
