SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2013. Fiscal First Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights -- Revenue: Fiscal first quarter 2014 revenue grew by $843,000 or 28% to $3.8 million, compared to $3.0 million of revenue generated in the fiscal first quarter of 2013.
- Revenue grew 28% despite the delay of a $1.3 million order from a national police force in Southeast Asia, due to a component supply issue. The delayed order is now scheduled to ship during the fiscal second quarter.
- Operating expenses increased by $224,000 or 14%, primarily due to an increase in the business development team to allow for expanded selling efforts, particularly in the mass notification market.
- Launched the LRAD 360Xm, a highly intelligible, compact, omni-directional product designed for shorter distances and defined spaces, meeting customer demand for a smaller version of the 360X in the mass notification and emergency warning system markets.
- Continued to see successes in International markets with 66% of revenues coming from outside the U.S. during the fiscal first quarter of 2014.
- Received a $4.0 million order for our LRAD-2000X in January 2014 for perimeter/border security; our first significant order for this new product.
