- Revenues: Fiscal second quarter 2016 revenues totaled $3.6 million, compared to $4.5 million reported in the fiscal second quarter of 2015.
- Revenues declined in the quarter primarily as a result of the timing of customer orders and shipments.
- Shipments in the quarter included the following applications: a Latin American prison system, mass notification projects in Asia, public safety, law enforcement, military and energy security.
- The Company also made an initial delivery to the United States Navy ("Navy") under a new $7.4 million contract award announced on March 31, 2016.
- Net Income/Loss: The Company reported a net loss of $665,000, or $0.02 per share, during the fiscal second quarter of 2016, compared with net income of $291,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, during the fiscal second quarter of 2015.
- The fiscal second quarter net loss included $836,000 of one-time expenses related to the Company's response to and settlement of a proxy contest initiated by one of the Company's stockholders, as well as separation costs related to the planned June 30, 2016 departure of the Company's CEO.
- The Company reported a $547,000 income tax benefit to partially offset the loss.
- Revenues: Revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2016 totaled $6.4 million, compared to $8.9 million reported during the same period in fiscal 2015. The decline was primarily due to delays in contract awards and the timing of customer orders.
- Net Income/Loss: Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2016 declined by $1.8 million to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.03 per share, from net income $796,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, reported during the same period in fiscal 2015.
- Balance Sheet: Cash and cash equivalents totaled $15.0 million at March 31, 2016, a decline from $18.3 million reported at September 30, 2015, primarily due to the use of $1.7 million to repurchase shares of the Company's common stock, $612,000 invested in short-term marketable securities, and $637,000 for the payment of cash dividends. Working capital totaled $22.5 million at March 31, 2016, compared to $25.6 million at September 30, 2015, primarily due to the reduction in cash and cash equivalents, increased accrued liabilities related to the CEO separation agreement and deferred revenues, partially offset by a transfer of marketable securities from long-term to short-term.
- Received a multi-year $7.4 million contract award from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana. The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract adds remotely operated, fully integrated LRAD RXL systems to Situational Awareness Systems on Military Sealift Command ships as well as other Navy and Coast Guard vessels.
