  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "December quarter results were better than expected, a function of better oil prices, higher drilling activity and excellent cost control. Revenue of $7.0 million was 24% higher than our estimate and 41% greater than the September quarter. Gross margin of 50.7% was a bit lower than we expected and down from the 52.6% posted in September and well within the range of profitability typically posted by the company. Of course, cost control was excellent as was balance sheet management. Working capital, ex cash and debt, was flat versus the prior quarter despite the significant increase in sales. DSO was up a bit, from 67 to 73, in the normal range. Inventory, which has been stubbornly high, fell over $1 million. We are raising our estimates and remain buyers of the stock. For this year, we have revenue of $29.9 million, up 45% from the prior twelve months and EBITDA of $3.6 million, up from break-even in the prior twelve months. March is usually down from the December quarter but the company is seeing strong demand and expects the first half to look similar to December, followed by the typical increase in September revenues."
