Net income was $8,057,000 or $0.35 per diluted share compared with net loss of $795,000 or $0.04 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. The increase in revenue resulted from increased sales in its Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) segment of $17.7 million and in its Efficient Energy Systems (EES) segment of $1.7 million. The higher income from operations was a result of higher revenue, resulting in $12.4 million higher gross margin, and lower research and development (R&D) expense of $3.2 million, offset by higher selling, general & administrative (SG&A) expense of $2.7 million. In the fourth quarter, the company invested approximately $1.1 million or 2% of revenue in property improvements and capital equipment. For the full year, the company reported revenues of $251,703,000 compared with $240,152,000 for the same period a year ago.
