The Company holds cash of $11,791,354, including $7,136,946 of restricted cash.
Bryan Ganz, Byrna Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer stated: “Byrna Technologies generated a significant increase in sales in our fiscal third quarter, both on a year-over-year and a sequential basis. The current socio-political climate has created a heightened sense of the need for effective and reliable less-lethal self-defense in both civilians and law enforcement professionals. This, coupled with increased awareness of the unique aspects of our product resulting from favorable, high-profile media coverage, drove rapid order growth for our Byrna® HD less-lethal personal security device. As we announced yesterday, we recently commenced production at our new Fort Wayne, IN manufacturing facility. I am very proud of our team’s ability to get this new production capacity up and running nearly a year ahead of plan in order to fulfill our robust backlog and satisfy our customers’ orders, as well as capitalize on the extraordinary demand for the Byrna® HD that we expect to continue for the foreseeable future. With Fort Wayne’s 500 unit per day capacity adding to our 600 unit per day production in South Africa, the recent additions to our management team, and investments in corporate infrastructure, we believe Byrna is now very well positioned as a formidable player in the growing less-lethal defense market. Based on our current backlog of orders, the ramp of production at our recently commissioned manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, and the sustained production rate at our facility in South Africa, we expect revenues for the full fiscal year 2020 to be in the range of $16 – $18 million. Additionally, we expect our fiscal fourth quarter of 2020 ending November 30th to be our first quarter of positive net income, as we benefit from increasing operating leverage on continued strong sales growth. Overall, we are optimistic about the Company’s prospects for delivering improved profitability and increased cash flow heading into the end of 2020 and entering 2021, as we work to build greater value for our stockholders.”
