Key Operational Highlights

  • ICOP recorded the second highest revenues in more than 12 months, for the third quarter of 2010.

  • Domestic sales increased 18% over the same nine (9) month period in 2009.

  • The Company recently participated in the 117th Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Orlando, Florida where new products and features were showcased including a .0004 lux night vision camera, ICOP's "DP2 Integration" product, to manage backend video for legacy units (vendor no longer in business), new industry-leading high-speed wireless upload capabilities and solid state hard drives.

  • ICOP received an initial order to deploy ICOP Model 20/20-W® mobile video systems to 11 Air Force Bases in the Southern US, stretching from Arizona to Florida.

  • Purchasing contracts were announced for the State of Montana, and a cooperative purchasing contract in New Jersey.

  • The Company announced an initial order for 104 ICOP Model 20/20-W systems from the US Department of Homeland Security that have been deployed at all land-based points of entry on the Southwest border between the United States and Mexico, including at the US Border Patrol driver training school for use in training pursuit officers.

  • In July, ICOP was notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC that the Company met the requirements of the March 24, 2010 decision of the Listing Qualifications Panel of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (the "Panel"), and that the Panel has determined to continue the listing of the Company's securities on The NASDAQ Stock Market.

  • As a result of the resignation of one of the independent directors on September 23, 2010, the Company needs to appoint one additional independent director no later than our 2011 shareholder meeting in order to comply with NASDAQ Listing rules. The Company is interviewing candidates and expects to meet this schedule.

  • On November 1, 2010, the Company agreed to settle the litigation brought against it by two institutional investors. The terms of the non- cash settlement include the surrender of the investors' Series 1 Warrants, the Company's issuance of an aggregate of 600,000 shares of unregistered common stock to the investors, and a mutual release of all claims. The common stock is being issued in reliance on the exemption from registration in Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act. The settlement is subject to the approval of the Court. A $1 million non-cash settlement expense was recorded in the third quarter of 2010.

Financial highlights for the three months ended September 30, 2010:

  • Revenues increased to $2.6 million, a 31% increase compared to third quarter revenues of $1.9 million reported in 2009.

  • Gross margin for the third quarter of 2010 was 42.3%, compared to 39.7%, for the same period in 2009, primarily due to higher cost of goods sold for 2009 due to our summer special program which offered promotional items that were expensed to cost of goods sold.

  • Operating expenses in the third quarter 2010 totaled $1.9 million compared to $2.1 million for 2009, a decrease of 10%. The decrease is mainly due to the decline in depreciation, stock based compensation and promotional expenses. Overall operating expenses as a percentage of sales decreased from 110.4% in 2009 to 75.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2010.

  • Operating loss for the three month period year over year increased $557 thousand, approximately 40%, primarily due to the $1 million recorded for potential non-cash settlement in the Financing Transaction Litigation.

Financial highlights for the nine months ended September 30, 2010:

  • Revenues increased to $6.3 million, a 9% increase compared to $5.8 million reported in 2009.

  • Gross margin for 2010 was 42.1%, compared to 46.8%, for the same period in 2009, primarily due to higher cost of goods sold for 2010 which is attributable to increased sales for certain products having a lower margin. The decline is also due to higher margins in 2009 for certain markets along with the result of the cost of inventory being higher in 2010 as a result of unfavorable foreign currency movements in the U.S. Dollar compared to the Japanese Yen.

  • Operating expenses were $6.3 million and $6.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, a decrease of $91 thousand (1%). Overall operating expenses as a percentage of sales decreased from 110.0% in 2009 to 99.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. This decrease is mainly due to lower stock based compensation, research and development, and depreciation expense offset by increased travel costs. The increase in travel costs is attributed to trade events, activities relating to a recently formed client services team and greater focus on direct sales.

  • Operating loss for the nine month period year over year increased $1.1 million, approximately 30%, primarily due to the $1 million recorded for potential non-cash settlement in the Financing Transaction Litigation.

On September 30, 2010, we had $192 thousand in cash, $2.2 million in accounts receivable, $2.5 million in inventory, $410 thousand in prepaid expenses and other current assets and $2.9 million in current liabilities, for a net working capital of $2.4 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements. You should not rely on forward-looking statements because they are subject to uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. The Company may experience significant fluctuations in future operating results due to a number of economic, competitive, and other factors, including, among other things, our ability to continue as a going concern, our history of losses and negative cash flow, our need for additional capital to acquire inventory, support operations, and capitalize on opportunities and our reliance on third-party manufacturers and suppliers, government agency budgetary and political constraints, new or increased competition, changes in market demand, and the performance or reliability of our products. This, plus other uncertainties and factors described in our most-recent annual report and our most-recent prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could materially affect the Company and our operations.
