“Once again ‘Team AS&E’ achieved outstanding year-end results with record revenues, net income, and EPS — and, we delivered strong cash flow for the fiscal year,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E’s President and CEO. “Revenue growth in the year was driven by market gains and the aggressive sale of existing and new products, resulting in a diversified product mix and revenue increases in all business areas.  We increased internal research and development investment 14% over last year, allowing us to introduce more new products, enhance existing products with new features and options, and accelerate the development cycle for bringing new technologies to market.”

 

Fabiano continued, “With our continued investment in global marketing and sales activities, our fiscal year bookings reached a record high of $298 million and increased the demand for our unique technology from our key market verticals — military, critical infrastructure, ports, and borders.  Despite the global economic uncertainties, our sales pipeline reached an all-time high at the end of the fiscal year with new opportunities in the U.S., Middle East, APAC, Latin America, and Europe.  These achievements in the year were the result of the successful execution of our strategies to grow revenue and earnings to increase shareholder value over the long-term. We’re also pleased to be able to continue to return cash to shareholders through a cash dividend.”

 

As previously announced, Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO, and Ken Galaznik, Senior Vice President, CFO and Treasurer, will host the quarterly conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the results and respond to questions. Please dial 1-800-261-3417 at least 10 minutes prior to starting time. For international participants, dial 1-617-614-3673. Please tell the Operator the confirmation code: 93037663.
