PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCQB:MKRS) today announced its third quarter and year to date 2016 financial results.
For the three months ended September 30, 2016, revenues were $1.18 million, compared to $1.24 million for the third quarter of 2015. Cost of sales was $446,810 compared to $529,303 for the third quarter of 2015. The Company reported net income of $20,726 for the third quarter of 2016 as compared to net income of $36,736 in the third quarter of 2015.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, revenues were $3.15 million, compared to $5.45 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $1,120,664 compared to $2,868,377 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The Company reported net income of $30,559 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to net income of $298,238 in the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The decreases were primarily due to the completion of the production contracts for 64 ADEPT units in 2015 and significant delays in the award of several Navy contracts.
As in the first and second quarters, Mikros continued to invest considerable resources in the development and marketing of its commercial software products, Diagnostic Profiler and Prognostics Framework. These software offerings, coupled with Mikros hardware products, provide a complete solution for advanced maintenance applications designed to service FAA radar surveillance and support systems, power distribution and utilities infrastructure, commercial shipping, and other complex distributed systems. Current customers for these systems include major multinational corporations and Mikros continues to receive repeat orders from existing customers and inquiries from new potential commercial customers.
During the third quarter, the Company completed a recapitalization transaction pursuant to which all issued and outstanding shares of preferred stock were exchanged or redeemed for a combination of cash and shares of common stock. In this transaction, the Company made aggregate cash payments of $544,017, a net issuance of 3,089,806 additional shares of common stock, and eliminated $2,955,433 of aggregate liquidation preferences applicable to its previously outstanding shares of preferred stock.
Recent Contract Awards
Mikros also received several important Navy contract awards in the third quarter which continue to support both new development and continuing production of its ADEPT and ADSSS product lines.
- In July and August 2016, the Company received two (2) additional contract modifications which added $4.65 million for ongoing development of its current service contract for LCS systems using the ADSSS. This funding will extend the program until June 2018 and allow Mikros to perform installations and support for the LCS ships.
- On September 12, 2016, the Company was awarded a multi-year IDIQ contract with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division, relating to the ADSSS product. The contract provides for the purchase and sale of up to $48 million of ADSSS units and related engineering and logistics support. On September 15, 2016, Mikros received a $3,032,993 delivery order under this contract, to support installations, support and logistics for the LCS ships.
- In September 2016, Mikros received multiple contracts totaling almost $0.4 million to continue logistics support of the ADEPT maintenance workstation. These contracts include general engineering support, repair, calibration and training.
Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO, commented, “These recent contract awards from our Navy customers will continue to support our ADEPT and ADSSS products and fund the first deployments of our production Condition Based Maintenance system on the Littoral Combat Ships. We continue to invest resources to support our business development efforts in several new commercial market segments with a view to generating new commercial applications and expanding our defense business base. As a direct result of these efforts, we recently received our first commercial manufacturing contract at our Manufacturing and Depot Center in Largo FL, where we are focused on developing more third-party production business.”
