EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVE Corporation (Nasdaq:NVEC) announced today financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased 17% to $5.98 million from $7.22 million in the prior-year quarter.

For fiscal 2014, total revenue decreased 4% to $25.9 million from $27.0 million for the prior fiscal year.
