Mikros realized gross profit of approximately $2.1 million, or 44% of revenue in 2012, as compared to $2.1 million, or 40% of revenue in 2011 reflecting a reduction in our cost of sales that drove an increase in our profit margin .

In commenting on the quarter and year-end, Chief Executive Officer Tom Meaney stated, "Over the past year, we have focused on delivering mission critical equipment to the U.S. Navy for their AEGIS cruisers and destroyers. This operating strategy continues to deliver increased positive margins and profitability. In addition to streamlining the assembly, delivery and deployment of ADEPT Units, we have also been developing product enhancements aimed at increasing future revenue generating opportunities. Our engineers recently completed an installation of our next-generation ADEPT system aboard USS Freedom, the first Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) placed into operation for the U.S. Navy. This pilot project, along with other contract awards anticipated in 2013, is expected to provide additional growth opportunities for Mikros over the next two to three years. We continue to maintain a strong cash position and believe that we are well positioned to compete in the current environment."
