REVENUE RECOGNITION

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 101, “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements” as updated by SEC SAB No. 104, “Revenue Recognition.” Under these guidelines, revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services rendered, the price is fixed or determinable and payment is reasonably assured.

and compliance with those provisions has not been demonstrated, revenues are recognized upon acceptance. Furthermore, revenues for products that require installation for which the installation is essential to functionality or is not deemed inconsequential or perfunctory are recognized upon completion of installation. Revenues for products sold where installation is not essential to functionality and is deemed inconsequential or perfunctory are recognized upon shipment with estimated installation and warranty costs accrued.

Applying the requirements of SAB No. 101 and SAB No. 104 to future sales arrangements used in the Company’s equipment sales may result in the deferral of the revenue for some equipment sales.

The Company also has certain sales transactions for products, which are not completed within the normal operating cycle of the business. It is the Company’s policy to account for these transactions using the percentage of completion method for revenue recognition purposes when all of the following criteria exist. (1) The Company has received the Customer’s purchase order or entered into a legally binding contract. (2) The Customer is credit worthy and collection is probable or Customer prepayments are required at product completion milestones or specific dates. (3) The sales value of the product to be delivered is significant in amount when compared to the Company’s other products. (4) Product costs can be reasonably estimated; there is no major technological uncertainty and the total engineering, material procurement, product assembly and test cycle time extend over a period of six months or longer.

Under the percentage of completion method, revenues and gross margins to date are recognized based upon the ratio of costs incurred to date compared to the latest estimate of total costs to complete the product as a percentage of the total contract revenue for the product. Revisions in costs and gross margin percentage estimates are reflected in the period in which the facts causing the revision become known. Provisions for total estimated losses on uncompleted contracts, if any, are made in the period in which such losses are determined. For the years ended 2008, 2007 and 2006, $6,024,666, $1,637,179 and $1,211,000, respectively, were recognized as revenue using the percentage of completion method.

The Company accounts for shipping and handling costs billed to customers in accordance with the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) Issue 00-10 “Accounting for Shipping and Handling Fees and Cost.” Amounts billed to customers for shipping and handling costs are recorded as revenues with the associated costs reported as cost of goods sold.
