Dallas, Texas (November 23, 2011) – StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Parametric Sound Corporation (OTCBB: PAMT), a leading innovator of directed audio products and solutions, yesterday announced financial results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.
The Company closed on November 22, 2011, at $0.69, trading in a fifty-two week range of $1.35 to $0.30.
FY 2011 Highlights:
- Completed first full fiscal year as an independent public company after completion of a spin-off.
- Introduced and commenced worldwide sales of a new and more economical HSS-3000 series of directed audio solutions delivering enhanced output and improved ease of installation.
- Began rebuilding customer pipeline with new products — trials ongoing for volume prospects.
- Converted and retired spin-off related debt and obtained equity investment for working capital to support production and sales.
- HyperSonic® Sound technology subject to three new patent applications in the U.S. and related foreign applications through an exclusive license arrangement.
- Identified important new markets for directed audio — commenced discussions with prospective customers.
- Demonstrated ability of HSS® to deliver a unique 3D audio image.
- Made significant investment in research — continued directed audio improvements planned for fiscal 2012.
In October 2010, following a spin-off, Parametric Sound commenced trading as an independent public company focusing on its leadership role in the directed audio market. Electing to discontinue inherited legacy products, the Company focused on new products with improved economics both for customers and the Company. In July 2011 the Company commenced sales of its new HSS-3000 series. With a dedicated focus on directed audio, the Company continues to add to its substantial body of intellectual property and develop new product solutions for growing markets.
“During the past year, we made considerable progress improving the economics and utility of our HyperSonic Sound directed audio solutions,” said Elwood G. Norris, CEO of Parametric Sound. “We are now building our customer and application pipeline and expect worldwide sales growth in fiscal 2012. The market for digital signage, including kiosks and point of sale systems, continues to grow along with awareness of the benefits of directed audio. We are developing additional products to be introduced in 2012 targeting new markets.”
The financial results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 represents the first full year of operations for Parametric Sound as an independent company. Results for the prior year include allocations prior to the spin-off and are not considered comparable.
The Company reported a net loss for year ended September 30, 2011 of $1,484,458 (loss of $0.09 per share) on revenues of $79,167 from HSS-3000 product sales during the fourth fiscal quarter only. Product deliveries commenced in July 2011, primarily to legacy customers, as the Company began to rebuild distribution and pursue volume directed audio business. Gross profit was $43,643 or 55%. Historical margins are not necessarily indicative of future margins. Operating expenses during the year of $1,220,319 included $619,378 expended on research and development. The Company reported cash of $491,764 at September 30, 2011 and working capital of $426,663. This compares to a working capital deficit of $151,335 at September 30, 2010. As the Company only became an independent reporting company in late September 2010, comparison of current period results with the prior year is not informative.
“Until introduction of HSS-3000 products in July, the HyperSonic product line was stagnant for over five years,” noted Norris. “We are reawakening and rebuilding market awareness and pursuing volume opportunities. We anticipate notable new product announcements, customer collaborations and growing product sales in fiscal 2012. Our team is focused on our core mission of being the dominant worldwide provider of directed audio solutions.”
