    Well, Q1 is historically a weak quarter for them, and orders have a funny way of slipping from one quarter to the next. The following is from yesterday's earnings call:

    "Thomas R. Brown - President and CEO
    Actually last year and that was one of our better first quarters if you look back over history. First quarter is usually a bad quarter for us, but last year we did 3.8 million and a little bit – a small profit.

    Lloyd Korten - Unique Investments
    And you’re anticipating beating that for this quarter?

    Thomas R. Brown - President and CEO
    We’re hopeful, Lloyd. We’re hopeful. We get these orders in, we get these orders out. I hate to give any guidance. We’re hopeful."

    Another thing to be aware of is that they are more than halfway through Q1, so they should have a pretty good idea of how the quarter is playing out at this point.

    LRAD had net income of $3.3M for the year. $1.8M was paid out in employee bonuses. That seems a little high relative to the net income figure.

    On the conference call, mgt said Q1 was off to a good start, but was noncommittal when asked whether it was going to be better than the previous Q1. Last Q1 had revenue of $3.8M and EPS of nil. I'm not getting a warm, fuzzy feeling about next quarter.
