SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the global leader in acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today that it expects to report fiscal Q1 2011 revenues of $2.2 million with an additional $7.2 million of LRAD® systems in transit (FOB destination) for the period ended December 31, 2010. The Company also announced that it is on track to report record first half fiscal year revenues with $12.8 million in back orders as of December 31, 2010, which includes the $7.2 million in transit, scheduled for delivery and receipt prior to March 31, 2011.

"As we have previously indicated, we're on pace to report record first half and full fiscal year revenues," remarked Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "In addition to the $2.2 million in revenues we expect to report for fiscal Q1 2011, we built $7.2 million of LRAD systems that are in transit to an international customer. This revenue will be recognized this quarter (fiscal Q2 2011)."

"We are scheduled to build and ship the balance of the $12.8 million in LRAD back orders along with other U.S. and international orders this quarter," Brown concluded.
