Net loss was $2,901,000 or $0.13 per basic and diluted share compared to net income of $1,655,000 or $0.07 per basic and diluted share a year ago. The decrease in revenue resulted from decreased sales in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) segment of $13.0 million offset by an increase in sales in Efficient Energy Systems (EES) segment of $0.8 million. The loss from operations was a result of lower revenue, resulting in $6.0 million lower gross margin, and higher selling, general & administrative (SG&A) expense of $0.4 million and research and development (R&D) expense of $1.7 million. Loss per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 increased by $0.01 due to the decrease in fair value of the conversion option of convertible bond investment and related sales of stock. In the second quarter, the company invested approximately $1 million or 2% of revenue in property improvements and capital equipment. On an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of the CybAero convertible notes and equity-related transactions, second quarter 2015 EPS would have been a $0.12 loss per share. For the six months period, the company reported revenue of $104,530,000 compared to $108,984,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $10,603,000 compared to $3,171,000 a year ago.

Acquisitions of property and equipment were $1,070,000 compared to $6,047,000 a year ago. The decrease in revenue resulted from decreased sales in UAS segment of $7.1 million offset by an increase in EES segment of $2.6 million. The higher loss from operations was the result of lower revenue, resulting in a $4.5 million decrease in gross margin, higher SG&A expense of $1.3 million and higher R&D expense of $1.6 million. Loss per share for the first six months of fiscal 2015 decreased by $0.01 due to the increase in fair value of the conversion option of convertible bond investment and related sales of stock. On an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of the CybAero convertible notes and equity transactions, year-to-date EPS would have been a $0.30 loss per share. For fiscal 2015, the company continues to expect to generate revenue of between $250 million and $270 million and gross profit margin of between 34.5% and 37.5% at the respective revenue levels.
