The Company reported substantial increases in revenue and net profit for both the second quarter and first half of 2014. Second quarter revenues were $1,209,802, representing an increase of $842,244 or 229% from the comparable prior year period. For the first half of 2014, the Company reported revenues of $2,093,142 as compared to $1,269,274 for the corresponding period of 2013, an increase of $823,868 or 65%.

The Company continued to report increases in both cash and working capital and added professionals to its engineering staff to meet increased customer demand.
During the second quarter, the Company completed an initial production order under its existing ADEPT Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to design and deliver "v3" ADEPT units. Three Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) units of the new design were delivered to the Navy. Work continues on extending the ADEPT system to a second Navy radar system and upgrading the capabilities of the 69 ADEPT units currently deployed in the fleet. These efforts include installing a faster and more capable controller module and upgrading the Operating System software from Windows XP to Windows 7.
The Company was awarded four new direct labor contracts during the second quarter valued at approximately $1.0 million to be funded over the next two years. These awards include funding for continued training of Navy personnel regarding the ADEPT product, upgrading ADEPT instrumentation functions for data acquisition, and upgrading the Adaptive Distance Support Sensor Suite, or ADSSS, for the Navy's new Littoral Combat Ship.
Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with our second quarter results. We tripled our revenue as compared to the second quarter of 2013 and delivered our most profitable quarter in over five years. Landing four new direct labor contracts contributed nicely to both our top line and profitability and should keep us near full capacity in the coming quarters. Our strategy over the past eighteen months of enhancing our expertise and capabilities by investing in our people and technology is starting to deliver results. Although the defense contracting environment remains very challenging, we remain cautiously optimistic that we can continue to accelerate both revenues and profits during the third and fourth quarter."
