Mikros Systems Corporation Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

PRINCETON, N.J., May 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mikros Systems Corporation (MKRS),  an advanced technology company specializing in electronic systems technology for advanced maintenance in military, industrial and commercial applications, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2019.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $2,020,265 compared to $2,490,660 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $470,395, or 19%.  Revenues in the first quarter of 2019 consisted entirely of engineering and support services which exceeded service revenue in the first quarter of 2018 by $444,642 or 28%. The decrease in total revenues was due primarily to ADEPT unit orders in the first quarter of 2018 without corresponding orders in the first quarter of 2019.  

Costs of sales were $778,542 in the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $1,177,032 in the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $398,490, or 34%. The reduction resulted from a change in the mix of revenue from a combination of production and engineering services in the first quarter of 2018 to engineering and support services in the first quarter of 2019. 

Mikros reported net income of $80,805 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $153,305 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. 

Recent operational highlights included:

  • $850,000 of additional funding under Mikros’ multi-year $35.1 million IDIQ Contract with the Naval Surface Warfare Center
  • Commencement of a pilot program with an energy consulting firm to utilize Mikros’ condition-based maintenance solutions to collect consumption data, decrease system downtime, and proactively manage maintenance for commercial energy users.

“We are very pleased to have delivered another profitable quarter for our stockholders by continuing to provide best in class engineering and support services to our important Navy customer while making substantial progress in developing our commercial business,” stated Chief Executive Officer Tom Meaney.  “Revenue was less than expected in the first quarter due to the timing of production orders for ADEPT units which we have no control over.  However, we did see growth in our core engineering services and support operations and we remain on track to have another excellent year.”   

Additional information regarding the Company’s financial data may be found in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Form 10-Q may be accessed at www.sec.gov or at the Company's website at www.mikrossystems.com.
