Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation (E&S) (OTCPK: ESCC) today reported financial results in its Form 10-Q filing for the first quarter ended March 28, 2014.
Sales for the first quarter of 2014 were $6.7 million, compared to sales of $4.7 million for the first quarter 2013. Net loss for the quarter was $0.6 million or $0.05 per share compared to a net loss for the first quarter 2013 of $1.4 million or $0.12 per share. Sales backlog as of March 28, 2014 was $19.7 million compared to $17.2 million as of December 31, 2013. Operating expenses for the quarter totaled $2.5 million compared to $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2013.
Comments from David H. Bateman, President and Chief Executive Officer: “Although sales volume and the $551 net loss in the first quarter of 2014 showed improvement to the comparable period of 2013, which reported a loss of $1,357, it did not compare favorably to the most recent two consecutive profitable quarters in the last half of 2013. The weaker sales and resulting net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was primarily the result of the timing of work and deliveries on customer projects rather than a negative trend in the overall business. New bookings were strong and the sales backlog improved which creates a more encouraging outlook for the remainder of 2014. Also cash balances improved as a result of progress payments received on new customer orders. With the improved backlog and strong sales prospects, we believe that sales and results for the remainder of 2014 will improve resulting in annual levels comparable to 2013.
“We continue to expect variable but reasonable consistent future sales and gross profits from our current product lines at annual levels sufficient to cover or exceed operating expenses excluding the current expense of the Pension Plan. The success of our efforts to settle our pension liabilities for an amount that the business can satisfy remains critical to the long term viability of the Company. We believe an improved financial position that would result from relief of the Pension Plan burden may present opportunities for better results through the availability of credit and stronger qualification for customer projects. We remain positive for the success of the business.”

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
