Vicon Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal Year 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: VII

From a sales perspective, fourth quarter sales were the highest of any quarter in fiscal 2011. While shipments were down slightly in 2011 versus 2010, new sales orders were identical for both fiscal years at $48.9 million. “Both Europe and the U.S., our primary markets, were and continue to be challenging environments for capital spending whether in the public or private sector”, said Mr. Darby.

Gross margins for the fourth fiscal quarter were similar to that of the full year at 38.7%. The margin decline for the quarter and full year reflects a highly competitive worldwide landscape which necessitated more aggressive pricing for certain projects.

Operating expenses on a comparative basis varied slightly in the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year when the patent litigation expense and certain restructuring costs are excluded. “Recently we took steps to lower operating costs but not impact development plans given the continuing tough sales climate. Notwithstanding the difficulties of 2011, Vicon’s financial position remains strong and our product offerings are some of the best in the industry. Two good positions to be in”, said Mr. Darby.

Vicon develops video management software and also designs, assembles and markets video cameras, network video servers/recorders, encoders and mass storage units. Vicon products are used in video system applications principally for security, surveillance, safety and communication purposes by a broad group of end users worldwide.
