CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technology Research Corporation ("TRC"), (Nasdaq:TRCI), today announced revenue and earnings for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Revenue was $9.2 million for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010, a decrease of $0.4 million from revenue of $9.6 million for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2009. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $0.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share compared with net income of $1.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share for the same period one year earlier. Operating cash flow, which we define as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, was $1.1 million for the current quarter, as compared to $1.9 million in the second fiscal quarter of last year.
Orders for the quarter just ended were $7.0 million, an increase of $1.9 million from the same fiscal quarter last year. Military orders were $2.7 million, an increase of $1.5 million from the second quarter of the previous year and commercial orders were $4.3 million, an increase of $0.4 million from the first quarter of the prior year.
Owen Farren, President and CEO, said: "While our commercial sales have rebounded nicely from last year's levels, our results were impacted this quarter on the military side by delays in some orders and programs. This impacted Patco as well as TRC's traditional military business. Furthermore, we faced a tough comparison to last year's second quarter, which was exceptional as a result of heavy deliveries to our largest military customer. While we expect to continue to be impacted in our third quarter by similar delays, we remain positive about our Company's direction.
"TRC continues to make very good progress on our strategic goal of providing new and advanced power management and control products and intelligent battery systems to our customers. We will do this through a combination of targeted acquisitions and internal product development."
Cash and cash equivalents were $9.3 million at September 30, 2010, an increase of $1.1 million from March 31, 2010. The Company continues to have no borrowings outstanding under its line of credit.
The second quarter dividend of $0.02 per share was paid on October 15, 2010 to shareholders of record as of September 30, 2010.
