American Science & Engineering Inc.'s Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.50 per share, payable on June 3, 2015 to the holders of record of the company's common stock at the close of business on May 26, 2015.

For the quarter, the company reported total net sales and contract revenues of $31,167,000 against $65,576,000 a year ago. This decrease in revenues is primarily attributable to decreases in cargo revenue as a large cargo project was completed in the prior period, and a decrease in mobile cargo revenue as there was a large shipment in the prior period, offset somewhat by an increase in fuel services. Operating income was $934,000 against $5,978,000 a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $904,000 against $5,947,000 a year ago. Net income was $877,000 or $0.12 per diluted share against $3,955,000 or $0.50 per diluted share a year ago. The company generated $1.9 million of free cash. For the full year, the company reported total net sales and contract revenues of $126,750,000 against $190,249,000 a year ago. This decline was attributable to a decrease across all product lines with cargo decreasing $35.1 million as the prior year included a large port project that completed in that year. Operating income was $1,165,000 against $22,756,000 a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $1,047,000 against $22,733,000 a year ago. Net income was $979,000 or $0.13 per diluted share against $15,117,000 or $1.91 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash used for operating activities was $11,136,000 against net cash provided by operating activities of $32,546,000 a year ago. Purchases of property and equipment were $2,580,000 against $1,821,000 a year ago.
