“On November 22nd, we pre-released our expected FY22 Q3 results which demonstrated an uptick in orders and activity, as we had forecast. Revenues from marine technology product sales rose 23% sequentially and were up 31% year-over-year. Our order flow is increasing, as expected, and our backlog of approximately $10.0M included orders for commercial sonar and source controller products, in addition to sonar systems for military applications. Based on our backlog and ongoing order activity that is expected to include two anticipated large orders in Q4, we expect revenues from continuing operations in FY22 to exceed those of FY21. On November 12th, we issued 432,000 shares of our 9% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock in an underwritten public offering. This generated net proceeds to the Company of about $9.5M, after underwriter discounts, commissions and other costs, We also negotiated the sale of a substantial portion of our legacy leasing assets during Q3. This resulted in proceeds to the company of over $2.5M in Q3, with approximately another $2.0M expected in Q4 of this year…Our long-term outlook remains positive as we progress with our strategic initiatives to expand our product offerings to meet the increasing needs of the maritime market, which will underpin our future growth. The continued disruptions in the global supply chain that began earlier this year do pose a risk to this favorable outlook”.
