Additional information may be found in the company’s 10-q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Revenues from the company’s rapidly growing Communications Services in the second quarter rose 54% to $1,839,000, accounting for 74% of total company revenues compared with 37% in the second quarter of 2011. Revenues from recurring services within the Communications segment were up 90% to $1,554,000 reflecting higher call volumes from correctional facilities and the increased number of facilities on the network.
Government Services revenue in the second quarter decreased to $649,000 compared with $1,997,000 in the second quarter a year earlier. The decrease in revenue in this segment was primarily attributable to SPAWAR contracts ending in 2011 and 2012 and the stagnation of contract funding in the Federal DoD market. The ending of the SPAWAR contracts accounted for approximately $747,000 of the decrease from the prior year.
Lattice CEO Paul Burgess said, “We continue to see strong growth in our communications business as demand for our technology and direct services remain robust. With an increase in sales both domestically and internationally, it is a clear indication our proprietary technology is being more widely accepted within the corrections industry and bodes well for our market share growth. With recent contract awards for our Government Services division we anticipate earnings growth within the division to rebound in the second half of the year.”
