PRINCETON, N.J., April 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCQB:MKRS) today announced financial results for 2016.
Revenues for 2016 were $5,067,365 compared to $7,360,204 in 2015, a decrease of $2,292,839, or 31%. The decrease was due primarily to the completion of the production contracts for 64 ADEPT units in 2015 and significant delays in the award of several Navy contracts.
Costs of sales were $2,047,002 in 2016 compared to $3,585,127 in 2015, a decrease of $1,538,125, or 43%. The decrease was due primarily to the timely completion of production contracts in 2015 for 64 ADEPT units. As a percentage of revenue, cost of sales decreased to 40% of revenues for 2016 as compared to 49% of revenues for 2015, due primarily to a change in the mix of costs incurred in 2016 and significant decreases in material purchases due to delays in receiving production orders.
The Company reported net income of $82,490 in 2016 as compared to $461,536 in 2015. The decreases in profits and revenue were largely the result of significant delays in the award of several Navy contracts in 2016.
Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO, commented, “After our biggest year ever in 2015, we used 2016 to position Mikros for continued growth by strengthening our engineering, contracting and quality departments, and investing R&D funds into developing commercial applications of our military product lines. In 2016, we also completed a recapitalization transaction in which we eliminated $2,955,433 of aggregate liquidation preferences applicable to our previously outstanding shares of preferred stock while limiting dilution to our existing shareholders to approximately 9.5%. This simplified our balance sheet and our common stock can now reflect the full equity value of the Company.
Mr. Meaney continued, “We solidified the foundation for future growth by generating multiple new contract awards from the United States Navy. In September, we received the largest contract in Company history when the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Port Hueneme, California awarded us a five year, $48,000,000 IDIQ contract for our ADSSS® system. We followed this up in February when we received a second five year IDIQ contract in the amount of $35,000,000 for our ADEPT® product line. Since then, we have received in excess of $14,000,000 of delivery orders under these IDIQ contracts, driving backlog to record levels. For 2017, we expect additional delivery orders under these IDIQ contracts, multiple new contract awards, as well as growth in our commercial business. The combination of two substantial long-term contracts, renewed emphasis on national defense, and the availability of condition based maintenance systems for complex distributed systems which both government and commercial customers are demanding, positions us well to have a very successful year in 2017.”
