Income from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $877,000 as compared to a loss of ($53,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2010. Our net income of $687,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 resulted in earnings of $0.14 per share, basic and diluted, as compared to a net loss of ($90,000) or ($0.02) per share, basic and diluted, for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Our backlog as of March 31, 2011 was $21,369,000. This record number is an increase of 917% from the backlog of $2,101,000, reported for March 31, 2010. In addition, the backlog has increased 115% from the backlog number of $9,944,000 that we reported for December 31, 2010. Timing for completion of the backlog varies depending on the product mix and can be as long as two years. Order backlog usually is a reasonable management tool to indicate future revenues and profits, however it does not provide an assurance of future achievement of revenues or profits as order cancellations or delays are possible. Backlog from quarter to quarter can vary based on the timing of order placements and shipments.

Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “During the 1st quarter we continued to convert into increased revenue and profits the higher level of orders received during the second half of 2010. Our backlog has continued to increase during Q1 to a record level and in Q2 thru May 9 an additional $4 million of new orders was received. These new orders in Q2 include new endeavors in production glass and medical CVD coatings as well as continued orders for our First Nano R&D equipment. With the continuing high order and quotation levels we are also finding new opportunities for the use and application of our custom chemical vapor deposition solutions as well as their usage for manufacturing of Graphene films, Silicon Nanowires and other nano materials.”
