CONCORD, Mass. – May 27, 2020 – Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) today announced its results for the quarter and six months ended March 28, 2020. For the quarter ended March 28, 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $(361,000), or $(0.20) per share, on revenue of $723,000, compared to net income of $173,000, or $0.09 per share, on revenue of $1,928,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2019. For the six months ended March 28, 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $(842,000), or $(0.46) per share, on revenue of $1,389,000, compared to a net loss of $(75,000), or $(0.04) per share, on revenue of $3,041,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2019.
Carl H. Guild Jr., President and CEO of Technical Communications Corporation, commented, "During the Company's first six months of 2020, revenue bookings slowed due to delays on several projects and the associated field testing that was required. In January, the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic began to adversely impact our foreign customers' operations, causing project flow to effectively shut down. As of this date, there are indications that procurement action is resuming, albeit slowly. We expect that the pre-virus projects remain viable and look to resume field testing and project capture during the next six months."
Also, the Company received an order in May valued at $1.85 million from ADS, Inc. for the Company's DSP9000 and HSE6000 encryption systems. This order is in support of a foreign military sales contract between the U.S. government and a Middle Eastern government. Delivery of the equipment and training services are expected to occur over the next six months.
Commenting on the contract award, Carl H. Guild, Jr. said, "This order is an add-on to a contract on which we initially began deliveries in September 2019. We are pleased that our customer has again selected TCC systems to secure its military communications network. We believe the combination of our quality systems, commitment to meeting unique requirements, and full lifecycle services have fostered this longstanding relationship. We also expect additional follow-on sales as our customer continues to expand its network."
