    · Revenues Increased 29%
    · Record Bookings of $36.5 million
    · Record Backlog of $23.6 million
    · Board of Directors Authorizes New $5.0 Million Share Repurchase Program

    SAN DIEGO, Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD)*, a global leader in long range voice broadcast systems, advanced mass notification systems, and distributed recipient software solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2018.

    “Revenues in fiscal year 2018 increased 29% from fiscal 2017 to $26.3 million,” remarked Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “The revenues came in under our expectations when $4.7 million in scheduled September shipments were delayed due to unexpected government funding issues primarily in one Asia Pacific country. We expect the government funding issues will be resolved and the orders to ship in fiscal Q2 and Q3 of 2019.”

    *Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Summary*

    *• Revenues*: Fiscal year 2018 revenues totaled $26.3 million, compared to $20.3 million in fiscal year 2017.

    · The 29% increase in revenues was primarily driven by increases of 24% and 16% in the acoustic hailing device (“AHD”) and mass notification (“MN”) business segments, respectively, and a $1.5 million partial-year contribution from Genasys Holdings S.L. (“Genasys”).
    · Domestic revenues increased 102% while international revenues decreased 11% due to the aforementioned shipment delays caused by unexpected government funding issues primarily in one Asia Pacific country.

    *• Net Loss*: The Company reported a net loss of $3.7 million, or $0.12 per share, for fiscal 2018, compared with a net loss of $877,000, or $0.03 per share, in fiscal 2017.

    · Net loss was higher in fiscal 2018 due largely to the previously announced $2.4 million non-cash income tax expense related to a reduction in the value of the Company’s deferred tax asset, which resulted from the reduction to the U.S. corporate income tax rate for the calendar year ended December 31, 2018.
    · Gross profit margin was 48.4%, compared to 50.6% in the prior fiscal year, largely due to higher manufacturing facility expenses associated with overlapping lease payments at two facilities.
    · Operating expenses increased $3.1 million, or 28%, from fiscal 2017, primarily due to $1.2 million of Genasys’ operations, acquisition related costs of $371,000, $352,000 of computer systems related expenses, and $239,000 of facility expenses due to the Company’s relocation to a larger facility and the overlap of leases.

    *• Balance Sheet*: Cash and cash equivalents totaled $11.1 million at September 30, 2018, down from $12.8 million at September 30, 2017.

    · Lower cash and cash equivalents were primarily due to $2.4 million of cash outlays to acquire Genasys Holdings in January 2018, $1.2 million to pay down Genasys’ promissory notes, and $725,000 used for Company stock repurchases, partially offset by $2.4 million of proceeds from the exercise of stock options.
    · Working capital totaled $21.1 million at September 30, 2018, compared to $25.4 million at September 30, 2017. The reduction in working capital was primarily due to the acquisition of Genasys.

    “Fiscal 2018 was a year of investment and transition for the Company as we made our first acquisition by purchasing Genasys, a leading distributed recipient software solutions provider, we relocated to a facility with more engineering and manufacturing space to support current and expected business growth, and we implemented a new ERP system to streamline our business processes,” Danforth added. “While making these investments, we grew bookings to a record $36.5 million, up 29% compared to last fiscal year, resulting in a record backlog of $23.6 million at September 30, 2018, almost double last fiscal year’s backlog.”

    *Select Fiscal Year 2018 Operating and Business Highlights*

    · Announced our largest domestic order to date, an $11.0 million U.S. Army Program of Record order that is part of a larger AHD requirement.
    · Acquired Genasys, a leading software provider of advanced location-based mass messaging solutions for emergency warning systems and workforce management. 
    · Received $5.4 million in AHD orders from Southeast Asia for public safety, law enforcement, defense, border, and maritime security applications.
    · Announced $5.3 million in other U.S. Military and Government AHD, spares, and accessories orders for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and State Department.
    · Announced $2.5 million in mass notification orders for LRAD 360-XT systems integrated with a gas detection alarm and LRAD’s solar power option, and a Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) funded critical infrastructure project.
    · Moved into a facility with expanded engineering and manufacturing capacity to support current and expected future business growth.
    · Repurchased 286,746 shares of LRAD common stock for $725,445, or $2.53 per share. $3.2 million remains on the buyback program as of September 30, 2018.

    The Company’s Board of Directors recently authorized a new share repurchase program, under which the Company may repurchase up to $5 million of its outstanding shares of common stock through December 31, 2020. The new program will take effect when the current repurchase program expires.

    “Since joining the Company two years ago, we have grown revenues 24% in fiscal 2017, 29% in fiscal 2018, and we expect revenue growth to accelerate in fiscal 2019,” concluded Danforth. “Based on our $23.6 million backlog at September 30, 2018, the strength of the current bookings forecast, and our substantial business pipeline, we expect positive cash flow, profitability, and record fiscal year revenues in 2019.”

    We include in this press release Non-GAAP operational metrics of bookings and backlog, which we believe provide helpful information to investors with respect to evaluating the Company’s performance. We consider bookings and backlog as leading indicators of future revenues and use these metrics to support production planning. Bookings is an internal, operational metric that measures the total dollar value of customer purchase orders executed in a period, regardless of the timing of the related revenue recognition. Backlog is a measure of purchase orders received that have not been shipped, but are planned to ship within the next 12 months.

    The Company may repurchase shares in open market transactions or under Rule 10b5-1 trading plans from time to time in its discretion, based on ongoing assessments of the Company’s capital needs, the market price of its common stock and general market conditions. Share repurchases may be made by the Company from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices or under one or more trading plans adopted to comply with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Company will carry out all such repurchase transactions in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act and other applicable laws, rules and regulations.

    Now with more torque and lower system weight than a gas-powered outboard system

    SEATTLE (PRWEB) December 13, 2018

    Located on the shore of Lake Union, Pure Watercraft set out to redefine boating with their Pure Outboard electric motor. In the process, they developed a battery pack with the highest energy density in marine, matching that of the best electric cars.

    The 118 lb battery pack uses industry-leading Panasonic lithium-ion cells and has a capacity of 8.85 kWh. More energy per pound means a boat can get up on plane more easily and stay on plane for longer. Active thermal management leads to longer battery life and the ability to travel greater distances at high speed.

    It’s also clean. The Pure Outboard emits no exhaust or noxious fumes, spills no oil or gas into the water, and is whisper quiet. It starts at the touch of a button, is immediately ready to drive, and charges easily via a standard 120V or 240V outlet available in most garages and marinas. Between the savings in fuel costs and the elimination of maintenance costs, a typical outing will cost about one or two dollars in electricity.

    “Our team built the outboard motor and battery pack system from the ground up,” says Andy Rebele, founder and CEO of Pure Watercraft. “Throughout the process, each component has been designed to maximize efficiency.”

    The current system is set to replace traditional combustion outboards up to 40 horsepower. Range depends on use: a typical 16’ aluminum fishing boat equipped with two battery packs could go 4-5 MPH for about 30 hours, or 25 MPH for about an hour. Charge time is as fast as 90 minutes from half to full charge using a 240V outlet.

    The quiet speed of the outboard has already caught the attention of anglers seeking a competitive edge. Likewise, elite rowing teams such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford and the University of Washington have pre-ordered the Pure Outboard for their coaches. “We’re eagerly awaiting the Pure Watercraft system because it will transform how we coach our team,” says Michael Callahan, Head Coach of men’s rowing at the University of Washington.

    Pure Watercraft is starting customer deliveries in January 2019 and is currently accepting $500 pre-order deposits. A system starts at $14,500 for a Pure Outboard motor and one battery pack.

    The United States Navy Memorial will dedicate a Lone Sailor statue in Guam to serve as a reminder of the historic and lasting relationship that Vietnamese refugees, including generations of Vietnamese-Americans, have with members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.

    WASHINGTON (PRWEB) December 14, 2018

    The Lone Sailor statue in the Territory of Guam will be dedicated at the Ricardo J. Bordallo Governor's Complex in a ceremony on Saturday, Dec.15.

    Guam, a strategically vital part of U.S. efforts to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific, has long been home and a port-of-call to many Sailors and Marines.

    The effort to put a Lone Sailor statue in Guam is the initiative of the Vietnamese-American community to demonstrate the special relationship between the United States Navy, Guam and the thousands of Vietnamese refugees who were evacuated from Saigon in the closing days of the Vietnam War during Operation Enduring Freedom.

    More than 111,000 of the 130,000 evacuated Vietnamese refugees were transported to Guam. The greater majority of these refugees resettled in the United States and became citizens, today with thriving businesses and families.

    This statue will serve as a reminder of the historic and lasting relationship those refugees, including generations of Vietnamese-Americans, have with members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, who rescued thousands at sea, and built infrastructure in Guam.

    “Looking across the Pacific Ocean from the island of Guam, this Lone Sailor will also serve as a powerful reminder of our Navy’s heritage in this region,” said Rear Adm. Shoshana Chatfield, commander, Joint Region Marianas. “It honors all women and men who’ve donned the cloth of our nation and put their lives on the line to protect freedom, democracy, and our very way of life – right here in the on Guam, throughout the Marianas and western Pacific.”

    The Ricardo J. Bordallo Governor's Complex is an ideal location for the statue as it is open to the public, remains well-kept by groundskeepers, has ample security, and oversees the water – as a Lone Sailor should.

    The Lone Sailor signifies the men and women who have served, are serving, or will serve in the Navy. He’s called the Lone Sailor, yet he is hardly ever alone. He represents a Sailor who is about 25 years old, a senior second class petty officer who is fast becoming a seagoing veteran. He has done it all -- fired weapons in war, provided humanitarian assistance in far-away lands, been attacked by the enemy and defended our freedom. He has made liberty calls in great cities and tiny villages where he was a tourist, ambassador, adventurer, friend and missionary to those less fortunate. His shipmates remember him with pride and look up to him with respect.

    Efforts to raise funds for the construction of the plaza supporting the statue continue. As we strive to produce the most appropriate setting possible for the statue, all continuing support is greatly appreciated.
