Financial Results, First Quarter of 2014 as Compared to First Quarter of 2013

Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $8,307 compared to revenue of $7,309 for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of approximately 14%. The increase was primarily due to a large restocking order from a major retailer. 

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $2,739. This compares to gross profit of $2,150 for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 27%. The Company's product mix continues to follow the overall security market trend of increased sales of higher margin network product.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $1,668. This compares to selling, general and administrative expenses of $1,545 for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 8%. The increase of $123 was primarily due to an increase in incentive based compensation. 

Net income for the first quarter of 2014 was approximately $1,072, or $0.74 per share. This compares to net income for the first quarter of 2013 of $596, or $0.41 per share.

James Pritchett, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "Over the past quarter, our net income and revenue benefited from a substantial order from one of our largest retail customers. The customer significantly increased their remodel program in 2013 and the first quarter of 2014, making up for a limited number of remodels in the prior two years.  During the quarter, the "catch up" period of its remodel program was completed and resulted in approximately $3,300 in revenue. In coming quarters, we expect this customer to return to more normal ordering patterns. We continue to be pleased with our year-over-year performance improvements and are dedicated to pursuing growth and improved profitability."
