CONCORD, Mass., Feb. 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:TCCO) today announced its results for the fiscal quarter ended December 25, 2010. For the first quarter of the Company's 2011 fiscal year, the Company reported net income of $499,000, or $0.27 per share, on revenue of $2,735,000, as compared to net income of $2,356,000, or $1.62 per share, on revenue of $4,764,000 for the quarter ended December 26, 2009. 

Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, "Having completed the shipment of our large radio encryption orders for Afghanistan in fiscal 2010, TCC's performance in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 reflects revenue levels consistent with our growth trend experienced prior to fiscal 2010. Shipments in the first quarter consisted of a more traditional mix of encryption system products, including our DSD72A-SP bulk encryption systems for Taiwan, IP encryption systems for satellite communications in the Mid-East, logistics support equipment for a customer in Africa, a corporate communications suite providing IP and cellular encryption services for a customer in the United States, as well as additional deliveries for Afghanistan. Our backlog at December 25, 2010 remained strong at $6.0 million and the Company expects to deliver these orders during the remainder of fiscal 2011."
