Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO, commented, "After coming off our most profitable quarter in five years, our sole focus in the third quarter was to continue to serve our important defense customers and maintain the strong momentum built in the prior months. We are very pleased to report that we delivered on both counts by generating over $125,000 in net income, over $1,000,000 in revenue for the second straight quarter, and obtaining fifteen new labor contracts so far this year. The recent $5,000,000 task order for additional ADEPT units not only contributed to our third quarter results, but also provides us with a good start to the fourth quarter and into 2015. We continue to execute our strategy of expanding the reach of our ADEPT technology and are making meaningful strides in this endeavor. As we look towards year end, we expect to finish strong and deliver a very profitable year for our shareholders."
