SAN DIEGO, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), a global leader in long range voice broadcast systems and advanced mass notification solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal second quarter and first six months ended March 31, 2019.
Fiscal Second Quarter 2019 Financial Summary
Six Months Ended March 31, 2019 Financial Summary
“Defense, law enforcement and public safety mass notification sales were the principal drivers of our fiscal second quarter and first half revenue and earnings growth,” commented Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “Of note in fiscal second quarter, demonstrations in California of our satellite-connected Genasys voice broadcast and emergency warning solutions resulted in a city ordering Genasys systems and software to replace its siren-only installations.”
Select Fiscal Second Quarter 2019 Operating and Business Highlights
“At the request of fire officials and emergency managers in California, we are continuing to demonstrate our Genasys multi-modal systems and critical communication solutions,” Danforth added. “Orders are projected from many of the emergency warning and public safety opportunities we are working in the state and in other domestic and international regions.”
“Fiscal second half sales are expected to remain strong for defense, law enforcement and public safety mass notification applications,” concluded Danforth. “Record first half revenues and anticipated increases in bookings and backlog have the Company well-positioned for profitability and record fiscal year revenues.”
We include in this press release Non-GAAP operational metrics of bookings and backlog, which we believe provide helpful information to investors with respect to evaluating the Company’s performance. We consider bookings and backlog as leading indicators of future revenues and use these metrics to support production planning. Bookings is an internal, operational metric that measures the total dollar value of customer purchase orders executed in a period, regardless of the timing of the related revenue recognition. Backlog is a measure of purchase orders received that have not been shipped, but are planned to ship within the next 12 months.
