James E. Rouse, the Company's President and CEO commented, "We are very pleased with the performance in the second quarter as well as the six months to date. The revenue increase over the same period in 2009 was mainly the result of higher volume in sensors and defense related products. Sensor volume and revenue increased 13% and 25% respectively in the six months, while revenues from defense related products rose over 5% from the same period of 2009. The increase in net income was primarily the result of increased revenue, and gross margin improvement in sensor manufacturing due to recent investments in automation and process improvements. During the quarter as a result of purchase accounting, net income reflects a $98,000 one-time non-taxable non-cash gain, net of transaction costs and related tax benefit, on our recent acquisition of RMDDx Corporation.
"The customization of the Company's SAECG software has been completed to our initial customer's satisfaction and we expect to report software license revenue from this product in the third quarter. Refocusing our efforts to increase software license agreements with cardiac diagnostic OEMs, Harold A. Strandquist, former President of Braemar Corporation, a leader in OEM cardiac equipment supply, has joined the organization in a sales and marketing capacity. Mr. Strandquist's thirty years experience with the cardiac equipment segment makes him the ideal individual to spearhead our efforts to expand sales of SAECG software. Additional research and development work is also planned to increase the breadth of our product offerings in the evolving cardiac diagnostic market.
"We are very excited about our recent acquisition of RMDDx. RMDDx represents a strategic step into the medical device and service sectors complementing our software and component manufacturing businesses. RMDDx is expected to aid in establishing a place for ART in the medical device and diagnostic services market as well as creating a solid platform for further development and application of ART's software. The acquisition was an important step for us in our quest to build on our strong foundation as we seek to achieve sustained growth and increase stockholder value over the long term through diversification, product development and acquisition."
