As if it was almost a given that the Hanover, Maryland based traffic enforcement specialists would be chosen, the news announcement on Thursday forced Brekford’s stock to trade to as high as 70% off its 52 week low set back in August. This news comes just one month after announcing a $2.2 million contract for vehicle upfitting services from an unnamed Federal law enforcement agency and a quasi-government electric power utility located in the Eastern U.S.
Are they good at what they do? Well, as of June 30, 2012, Brekford Corp. ONLY had cash on hand of $2,771,931 and net accounts receivable of $3,661,061. They were only able to book $8,236,363 in revenues for the first six months of 2012 versus $7,468,623 for the same period in 2011, an increase of only 10.28%. The effect of the INCREASE in revenues booked did however not carryover to net profit, $249,845 versus $445,035, respectively, due a an increase in SGA expenses.
Was the increase in SGA expenses worth it? Brekford booked Baltimore, the quasi-government utility contract, as well as a multi-year speed enforcement contract in the Town of Princess Anne, Maryland. With growing revenues from local agencies and cities, BFDI might not be one of the dolalr volume leaders on the OTC any time soon, but they surely are a good penny stock to have targeted for 2013 and beyond.
