LRAD Corporation to Report Over $3 Million in Fiscal Q3 2010 Revenues

Company Anticipates Strong Fiscal Q4 to Result in Record Revenue Growth and First Profitable Fiscal Year

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the global leader in acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today that it expects to report fiscal Q3 2010 revenues of over $3.0 million and nine-month fiscal year revenues of over $12.0 million for the period ended June 30, 2010. Due to orders received late in fiscal Q3 and orders expected this quarter, the Company anticipates a strong fiscal Q4 and reporting on a fiscal basis its fourth consecutive year of record LRAD® revenues, its third consecutive year of record Company revenues, and its first profitable year for the period ending September 30, 2010.

"Fiscal Q3 was representative of what we've addressed previously in that our quarters are uneven due to long selling cycles, the infancy of the AHD market, and the timing of when orders are received," remarked Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "Based on orders booked in the quarter, we finished strong by receiving and reporting over $3.2 million of LRAD systems and services orders in the last two weeks of fiscal Q3. The majority of these orders carry over into fiscal Q4 2010 and fiscal year 2011."

Brown added, "In spite of a general slowdown in global defense-related spending due to uncertain economic conditions, we anticipate a strong fiscal Q4, reporting our first profitable fiscal year, and the continued expansion of our domestic and international LRAD business in fiscal 2011."
