CONCORD, Mass., Aug. 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:TCCO) today announced its results for the three and nine months ended June 23, 2012. For the third quarter of the Company's 2012 fiscal year, the Company reported a net loss of $(915,000), or $(0.50) per share, on revenue of $734,000, as compared to net income of $1,000,000, or $0.55 per share, on revenue of $4,023,000 for the quarter ended June 25, 2011. For the nine months ended June 23, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $(352,000), or $(0.19) per share, on revenue of $6,791,000, as compared to net income of $2,014,000, or $1.10 per share, on revenue of $9,865,000 for the nine months ended June 25, 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 September 14, 2012 to all shareholders of record on August 31, 2012.
Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, "As reported in our press release for the second quarter, delays in the award of certain key contracts have occurred, resulting in lower revenues and a net loss in the third quarter. It is expected that the low revenue conditions will continue through the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 and the first quarter of fiscal 2013. We are optimistic, however, that the delayed contracts may be awarded prior to the end of calendar 2012, thereby allowing revenues to return to more normal levels in early 2013. Backlog at the end of the third quarter was $1,316,000.
Mr Guild continued, "In the area of new product development, field testing at customer installations has begun for our new DSD72S-SP(STM) military grade optical SONET/SDH encryptor. Testing to date has been very successful and we expect to continue field and operations testing into 2013, with the expectation that initial procurement decisions will be made in the latter half of 2013. The new CX7211 100Mbs to 1000Mbs rate selectable IP encryptor accompanied by the associated key and operation management system, KeyNet, is on schedule for first deliveries in October 2012 and is expected to be a best-in-class competitor for the high quality security required for embassy and foreign office operations."
