Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of TCC, said, "While TCC continues to have a pipeline of initiatives in development, the timing and outcome of these potential contracts is unknown. The delay in the timing of customer orders received during fiscal 2016 resulted in reduced revenues for the period. The Company believes market conditions will improve and provide opportunities to build a successful future through its efforts to enlarge and enhance its product line and expand its customer base by both identifying new customers for existing and new products and offering such products to current customers."
"As market conditions evolve, we will continue to closely monitor and reduce operating expenses as appropriate, while strategically continuing to invest in business development efforts, develop strategic relationships and expand our sales channel network."
