HANOVER, Md., Brekford Corp. (the “Company” OTCBB: BFDI), a leading public safety technology service provider of fully integrated traffic safety solutions, vehicle up-fitting, and ruggedmobile technology is pleased to announce net income for fiscal first quarter 2012. First quarter performance includes a 20.13% increase in revenue, 42.23% increase in gross profit and an increase of 9.17% in net profit.
“We are pleased with the strong performance of our expansion efforts in Q1, especially in consideration of the frontloaded costs that were needed to cover personnel, inventory, customer support and engineering for several new contract implementations, which can take four to seven months,” stated C.B. Brechin, Brekford CEO. “Our average contract length is for anywhere between three to six years. This represents substantial growth potential for investors who understand the business cycle, as well as the emerging opportunities in the industry overall.”
“Our solutions deliver shareholder results that are preforming better than forecasted in the present market environment, which is directly attributable to Brekford’s trusted name, strategic positioning and the growth opportunity that exists in the traffic safety sector,” added Brechin. “R&D is feverishly working on state-of-the-art technology that will bear lower upfront costs and shorter deployment, further increasing shareholder value in upcoming quarters.”
