Technical Communications Corporation Reports Results for the Fiscal Quarter Ended December 28, 2013 Business Wire CONCORD, Mass. -- February 7, 2014 Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM:TCCO) today announced its results for the first quarter of its 2014 fiscal year. For the quarter ended December 28, 2013, the Company reported net income of $184,000 or $0.10 per share, on revenue of $2,509,000, compared to a net loss of $(310,000), or $(0.17) per share, on revenue of $1,597,000 for the quarter ended December 29, 2012. Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, “During the quarter, we shipped the balance of our large production contract to the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command to upgrade the DSD 72A-SP military bulk encryption system currently in use by the Government of Egypt. We also received $955,000 in orders for our DSP 9000 radio encryption system from a U.S. radio manufacturer for deployment into Afghanistan.” “Our traditional government products continue to be in demand and sales of these products accounted for the majority of revenues during the quarter. At the same time, we continue to ramp up marketing efforts for our new secure voice and data products, and have had positive market response to date.” “Revenues for the balance of fiscal 2014 are difficult to predict due to delays in the award of certain foreign and domestic procurements currently in process. We nevertheless remain confident that the release of our new data and voice products will result in improved future revenue and profitability.” During fiscal 2014 the Company is focusing technical efforts on three principal areas: development of solutions that meet the needs of original equipment manufacturers; product enhancements that include expanded features, planned capability and applications growth; and custom solutions that tailor our products to meet the unique needs of our customers.
