Revenue for the period grew to $4.8 million, an increase of $2.6 million over the first six months of 2020, resulting in more than 100% increase in gross profit. This, coupled with a 12% reduction in operating expenses, resulted in significant net income of $749 thousand and positive adjusted EBITDA(2) of more than $1.4 million for the period. Although our revenues have historically been project-based and spiky, the significant bookings backlog and deferred revenue do provide some positive indication for the remainder of 2021.

We expect continued volatility in our revenue and income for the next 12 months due to COVID-19's ongoing impact on our clients and the global economy in general. Supply chain delays and component price increases due to COVID-19 are expected to impact lead times and costs to produce our products. On June 30, 2021, we had specific large orders totalling over $4 million that we weren't able to ship because of electronic components delays. We expect to ship these orders over the next six months, and we continue to build inventory of our standard products so that orders for these products will generally be fulfilled quickly.

"Our results in the first half of 2021 are very encouraging and we are optimistic that the global economy is starting to pick up as the world begins to adapt to operate in the age of COVID-19. For this reporting period, I'm very pleased to report more than 100% revenue growth to $4.8 million, backlog of orders and deferred revenue totalling over $5 million and a cash balance of $4.1 million," said Harris Liontas, President and CEO. "These results demonstrate our clients' trust in our products and professional services to reliably operate, maintain, and enhance their most critical systems. Our solutions are designed to be adaptable to meet the stringent requirements of our industry-leading customers and their new business requirements in the future. This adaptability is what differentiates us from other vendors and supports our clients in differentiating themselves in their own industries."
