Hickok Incorporated Reports Third Quarter And Nine Month Results

CLEVELAND, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hickok Incorporated (OTC QB: HICKA.PK), a Cleveland based supplier of products and services for the automotive, emissions testing, locomotive, and aircraft industries, today reported operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2014.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded net income of $386,911 or 24 cents per share, compared with a net loss of $133,777 or 8 cents per share, in the same period a year ago. Sales in the third quarter were $2,130,412, compared with $1,339,931 a year ago. The current year third quarter benefited from the large order received in January 2014.

In the first nine months, the Company reported a net loss of $231,031 or 14 cents per share, compared with net income of $129,458 or 8 cents per share, in the same period a year ago. Sales were $4,297,121, compared to $5,043,172 a year ago. Sales for the nine months of fiscal 2014 and 2013 benefited from large orders from a Tier 1 Supplier of an OEM. The entire large order in fiscal 2013 was shipped in the first half of year. The remaining balance of approximately $810,000 of the fiscal 2014 large order will be shipped in the fourth quarter of the current year.

Robert L. Bauman, President and CEO, said, "As I projected in our last press release the third quarter was strong and the fourth quarter should also be strong due to the large order for a Tier 1 supplier to an OEM. Our non-OEM sales continued to be weaker than projected in the third quarter but they are beginning to show signs of recovery." He also added, "We are continuing to pursue other opportunities that should offer real future revenue growth possibilities."

Backlog at June 30, 2014 was $1,287,000, an increase of 97% from the backlog of $652,000 a year earlier. The $697,000 increase was due primarily to increased orders for diagnostic products to automotive OEM's of approximately $860,000 and aftermarket products of approximately $62,000, offset in part by a decrease in orders for indicator product of approximately $161,000 and emissions products of approximately $64,000. The Company anticipates that most of the current backlog will be shipped in the last quarter of fiscal 2014. The current order backlog increased substantially due to the large order for a Tier 1 Supplier and the remaining balance of this order will ship in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

The Company's current assets at June 30, 2014 of $3,837,570 are 2.3 times current liabilities, there is no long-term debt and working capital is $2,151,941. These compare to June 30, 2013 current assets of $3,126,016 that were 4.3 times current liabilities, no long-term debt and working capital of $2,396,782. At June 30, 2014 shareholder's equity was $2,519,074 or $1.54 per share.

Hickok provides products and services primarily for the automotive, emissions testing, locomotive, and aircraft industries. Offerings include the development, manufacture and marketing of electronic and non-electronic automotive diagnostic products used for repair and emission testing. The Company also develops and manufactures indicating instruments for aircraft, locomotive and general industrial applications.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.

As popularity of the smart home is growing and continues to go mainstream, technological factors play a greater role. The IoT protocol houses the interoperability battery consumption, security, and configuration of a smart home device, and it can be difficult for companies to choose the right kind for their product.
