Company’s first profitable quarter fueled by existing order backlog and new bookings of laser material processing products
LAKE MARY, FL, February 9, 2016 – Fonon Corporation (FNON) today announced its expectation of a profitable first quarter of fiscal 2016 based on its total reportable order backlog, which exceeds $1 million in open orders.
The new order backlog of Fonon’s laser material processing systems consists of orders for which written authorization has been accepted and shipment dates assigned, and shipments which have occurred but for which revenue has not yet been recognized.
Sales of new products, including the MarkStar Professional handheld laser marking system, into the automotive, biomedical, aerospace, glass and defense industries have been bolstered by demand trends across Fonon’s core market of industrial manufacturing.
“In Q1 of 2016 the Company entered into a strong revenue-generating stage, based on booked sales orders of new Company products for 2D and 3D laser marking, cutting and engraving,” said Dmitriy Nikitin, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Fonon. “This is a direct result of prior investments, dynamic execution of the Company 2015 Reorganization Plan, and shareholder confidence in our technology, products and team.”
These statements about estimated results are preliminary and expectations do not include the potential impact of any new product sales or development agreements that Fonon may enter into during the balance of Q1 2016.
