Operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $2.4 million compared to operating income of $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

The Company had a non-operating, net investment loss of $0.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to non-operating, net investment income of $0.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The Company's net after tax income was $1.2 million ($.13 per basic and diluted share) for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to net after tax income of $1.1 million ($.11 per basic and diluted share) for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, the Company had revenue of $49.2 million and net after tax income of $4.8 million ($.51 per basic and diluted share) versus revenues of $47.5 million and net after tax income of $4.6 million ($.49 per basic and diluted share) for the nine months ended June 30, 2011.

E. J. Elliott, Gencor's Chairman, stated, "Although revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was flat compared to revenue in the third quarter of last fiscal year we are pleased with the Company's performance. Revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, benefited from orders that typically are received and completed earlier in the fiscal year. Fiscal year to date revenue of $49.2 million is the Company's highest nine month total since 2008. This is reflective of Gencor winning large contracts, even though the market remains very competitive. Gross profit margin of 25.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was the highest gross profit margin in nine quarters. The Company has begun to see the results of its cost-focused initiatives."
