CONCORD, Mass., May 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:TCCO), today announced its results for the three and six months ended March 24, 2012. For the second quarter of the Company's 2012 fiscal year, the Company reported a net loss of ($366,000), or ($0.20) per share, on revenue of $1,617,000, as compared to net income of $515,000, or $0.28 per share, on revenue of $3,107,000 for the quarter ended March 26, 2011. For the six months ended March 24, 2012, the Company reported net income of $563,000, or $0.31 per share, on revenue of $6,057,000, as compared to net income of $1,014,000, or $0.56 per share, on revenue of $5,842,000 for the six months ended March 26, 2011.
Technical Communications Corporation today also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a dividend of $0.10 per share of common stock outstanding. The dividend is payable in cash on June 15, 2012 to all shareholders of record on June 1, 2012.
Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, "The lower than expected revenue for the second quarter was caused by delays in the award of certain international contracts, which delays could continue through the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2012. We expect these contracts to be awarded, but the timing is uncertain. The backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1,941,000."
Mr. Guild continued, "TCC remains committed to its plans for internal product development, including the advancement of its network security product lines with new systems for the SONET/SDH and IP protocols. Initial customer testing of our 72B optical encryptor was successfully completed in the second quarter, and extensive field testing is expected to be conducted later in 2012. Initial deliveries of our new multi-speed, rate configurable IP encryptor are expected to begin in October 2012.
For the radio encryption product line, TCC expects to announce before fiscal year-end the introduction of a pocket-sized encryptor intended for first responder and military field use. This battery powered encryptor is designed to interface with any radio and provide interoperable secure communications at an attractive price. The product is expected to have variants tailored to meet the needs of the military, law enforcement and commercial markets."
