Technical Communications Corporation Reports Results for the Fiscal Year Ended September 25, 2021
CONCORD, Mass., Dec. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) today announced its results for the fiscal year ended September 25, 2021. For the year ended September 25, 2021, the Company reported a net loss of $(1,088,000), or $(0.59) per share, on revenue of $1,866,000, compared to a net loss of $(911,000), or $(0.49) per share, on revenue of $4,108,000 for the year ended September 26, 2020.
Carl H. Guild Jr., President and CEO of Technical Communications Corporation, commented, "For the fiscal year 2021, TCC continues to experience significant delays in the capture of new international business. Although we have experienced growth in the number of new opportunities, the procurement times have approximately doubled due to the many and diverse effects of the COVID pandemic. Customers are reluctant to have in-person meetings and performance demonstrations all of which are necessary to consummate sales. In response, TCC has developed an effective capability to support customers through video communications and there is evidence that progress is being made in closing on selected projects.
We expect that business recovery can occur in 2022 as the negative effects of the pandemic lessen, the demands for cyber security increase and TCC's customer customizable approach to data encryption security gains in popularity. During 2021, TCC completed the development of its new line of high-grade digital data encryptors and we expect to be conducting a variety of application demonstrations during the year. Our customers have responded well to TCC's concept of customer customized encryption security where they can participate in the development of the chosen solution."
