SAN DIEGO, Aug. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), a critical communications company, today announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter and first nine months ended June 30, 2019.
Fiscal Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results
“A 66% increase in public safety revenues over fiscal Q3 2018 and strong defense shipments fueled record fiscal third quarter revenue results,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “Bookings for the quarter were $10.4 million, an increase of more than $3 million from the third quarter of fiscal 2018.”
First Nine Months Financial Results
“The $29.2 million in revenues is a Company record for any first nine-month fiscal year period and surpasses all previous total fiscal year revenue results,” continued Mr. Danforth. “Bookings for the fiscal first nine-months were strong at $20.9 million, up $1.4 million from the same period a year ago.”
Select Fiscal Third Quarter 2019 Operating and Business Highlights
“For the fiscal 4th quarter, robust bookings and backlog have the Company on track for an increase in revenues over fiscal Q4 2018,” Mr. Danforth concluded. “Growth in public safety, emergency warning mass notification and defense orders is expected to drive further increases in bookings and backlog, positioning the Company for continued revenue growth through fiscal 2020 and beyond.”
We include in this press release Non-GAAP operational metric of bookings, which we believe provides helpful information to investors with respect to evaluating the Company’s performance. We consider bookings a leading indicator of future revenues and use this metric 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.
