Lifeloc Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LCTC), a global leader in the development and manufacturing of breath alcohol and drug testing devices, has announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019, as well as the results for the 2019 annual shareholder meeting.
First Quarter Financial Highlights
We posted quarterly net revenue of $2.07 million resulting in quarterly net income after taxes of $31 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.20 million and quarterly net income of $11 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2018. Revenue for the quarter declined 6% versus the first quarter last year. This decline appears to have coincided with the federal government shutdown which adversely affected buying in regulated testing areas as well as local law enforcement purchases. Even though revenue declined, earnings improved through lower operating expenses. Gross margin on total revenue remained unchanged in the current quarter 45% versus 45% in the same quarter last year.
Lifeloc conducted its annual shareholder meeting May 6th at the companys headquarters in Wheat Ridge, CO. The proposed slate of directors was elected with over 99% of the votes cast and the appointment of auditors was ratified, also by more than 99% of the votes cast. Following the business portion of the meeting, a brief company status report was presented, and these slides are available on our website, www.lifeloc.com/shareholderMeeting.
Our vision is that Lifeloc becomes the worlds leading company in real-time alcohol and drug abuse detection and monitoring. We have been investing aggressively in product development to achieve this vision, focusing on a few major product developments that are expected to have a significant impact on our performance. We are now at the point where we will start to reap the benefit of these investments.
The premier breathalyzer model of our new platform, the Lifeloc LX9, went into production during the quarter. The LX9 satisfies many market needs for performance and connectivity and combines these features in one easy to use package. To support the new platform, our patented Easycal calibration station has been upgraded to the Easycal G2 second generation calibration station. This model is compatible with our existing installed base of professional breathalyzers as well as the new platform. The G2 model includes RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reading of calibration standard data, which further automates the calibration process.
Likewise, the new model of the R.A.D.A.R. (Real-time Alcohol Detection and Reporting) device is moving forward. Prototype devices are in testing, with production expected later this year. R.A.D.A.R. devices are alcohol monitoring units which can be used as a tool to supervise offenders as an alternative to incarceration. Onboard biometrics automatically verify the identity of the test subject. R.A.D.A.R. devices are a critical step in moving our business towards a recurring revenue model.
Our marijuana breathalyzer remains a key target for product development. The continued broader legalization of marijuana only increases the need for a rapid, quantitative roadside test to identify drivers under the influence of marijuana. The completion of other projects will allow resources to be redirected towards accelerating this effort. The ability of our technology to detect delta-9-THC down to a concentration of 5 nanograms per milliliter and to collect a testable sample from a vapor stream has already been demonstrated in our laboratories. Detection of THC is accomplished through the SpinDx technology, licensed exclusively by Lifeloc Technologies for drugs of abuse from Sandia National Laboratory. More work is needed to convert this technology into a simple-to-operate device suitable for roadside testing.
