Sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 increased 14% to $16,208,000, compared to $14,268,000 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the quarter increased 39% to $2,363,000 ($0.27 per share) from $1,704,000 ($0.20 per share) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.
Raymond M. Soto, Bolt's chairman and CEO, commented, "The 14% increase in sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 is attributable to our marine seismic data acquisition businesses which reported a 23% increase in sales, partially offset by a 14% decrease in sales in our underwater robotic vehicle business. During the quarter we shipped the first order of our SmartSource™ digital controller which was a major contributor to the increase in sales and net income."
