Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, "Revenue and operating income increased during the third quarter due to the extraordinary sales volume generated by deliveries of TCC's DSP 9000 RF Encryption Systems currently being deployed in Afghanistan. As previously reported, the Company received orders in April 2010 valued at approximately $9.7 million for encryption equipment to provide secure national communications in Afghanistan. TCC is making shipments on these contracts on an accelerated basis and expects to substantially complete deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2010, which we expect will result in record revenues for fiscal 2010. Upon completion of these deliveries, our revenue is expected to return to the more modest levels achieved during the recent past. The Company continues to expand its market for the DSP9000 RF Encryption System to new customers that can benefit from a universal security solution which can be applied to their existing radio communications suite of equipment.
