CONCORD, Mass., Dec. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) today announced its results for the fiscal year ended September 26, 2020. For the year ended September 26, 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $(911,000), or $(0.49) per share, on revenue of $4,108,000, compared to net income of $631,000, or $0.34 per share, on revenue of $7,024,000 for the year ended September 28, 2019.

Carl H. Guild Jr., President and CEO of Technical Communications Corporation, commented, “As stated in our previous quarters’ earnings reports, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to delay several projects that are in the pipeline, and those delays continue although we have experienced some limited progress toward the resumption of the procurement process. TCC and our customers have implemented substantial video communications in an effort to move the projects forward. We have seen evidence that certain countries are beginning to loosen restrictions, and TCC is preparing to increase its business development efforts as soon as it is allowed and safe.

TCC has and will continue to pursue and accept U.S. government small business financial aid as it becomes available. The entire TCC team is committed to doing what is necessary to stay prepared for an expected business upturn in fiscal 2021.”
