TASER International's CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

We caution that these statements are qualified by important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected by the forward-looking statements herein. Such factors include but are not limited to market acceptance of our products, establishment and expansion of our direct and indirect distribution channels, attracting and retaining the endorsement of key opinion leaders in the law enforcement community, the level of product technology and price competition for our products, the degree and rate of growth in the markets for which we compete and accompanying demand for our products, potential delays in international and domestic orders, implementation risk of manufacturing automation, risks associated with rapid technological change, execution and implementation risk of new technology, new product introduction risk, ramping manufacturing production to meet demand, litigation resulting from alleged product related injuries and deaths, media publicity concerning product uses and allegations of injury and death and the negative impact this could have on sales, product quality concerns, potential fluctuations in quarterly operating results, competition, negative reports concerning TASER device uses, financial and budgetary constraints in prospects and customers, dependence upon sole and limited source suppliers, fluctuations in component pricing, risks of governmental investigations and regulations, TASER product tests and reports, dependence upon key employees, employee retention risks and other factors detailed in the company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

With that, I’ll turn it back over to Rick Smith.

Patrick W. Smith

Thanks, Dan. I think we’re all proud to be having a call like one we’re having today. I think the results reflect a lot of hard work by a lot of great people. As you all are probably aware, first quarter revenues came in at $25.6 million, an increase of $2.5 million or 10.9% over the first quarter a year ago.

Sequentially revenues grew by about 20%. This increase was driven primarily by our third consecutive quarter of growth in North American law enforcement, which grew by over 25% as well as by a large order from the United States Army. These increases were partially offset by a 51% decrease in international sales from a year ago period, although we did see a slight sequential increase over the fourth quarter.
