Mikros Systems Announces First Quarter Results

Princeton, NJ – May 15, 2012 – Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Highlights

  • The Company posted revenue of $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2012, versus $1.2 million in the same period of 2011, primarily reflecting the timing of task orders
  • Gross profit margins increased to 65.7% in the quarter from 50.2% in the first quarter of 2011
  • Generated $0.4 million of additional ADEPT awards with the U.S. Navy

“While we reported lower revenue this quarter versus last year due to the timing of our Navy contracts, we remain very well positioned for top line expansion going forward,” Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO. “Our profit margins were strong, and we recently announced additional task orders for development and deployment of our core ADEPT technology – bolstering our growth outlook. Even with the threat of sequestration hanging over U.S. defense spending, our products are focused on efficiently upgrading the Navy’s operating readiness – making them attractive during times of budget uncertainty. We are actively bidding on a number of other opportunities and are confident in our ability to expand our base of business and post improved performance in the quarters to come.”
