Sutron 4th-Quarter Profit Rises 79 Percent on Higher Revenue, Lower Income Taxes

STERLING, Va. (AP) -- Sutron Corp., which provides hydrologic, meteorologic and oceanic monitoring products, systems and services, said Thursday its fourth-quarter profit surged 79 percent on increased revenue and lower income taxes.

Quarterly net income grew to $1.2 million, or 27 cents per share, versus $675,782, or 16 cents per share, during the same period in the previous year.

Revenue climbed to $6.1 million, up 26 percent from $4.9 million a year ago.

Sales rose on higher shipments of standard products by its hydromet products unit, an increase in project work by the integrated systems division and an increase in contract sales due to work performed on the Central Water Commission of India contract by its India project office, Chairm and Chief Executive Raul McQuivey said in a statement.

For the year, earnings surged 67 percent to $2.4 million, or 56 cents per share, compared with $1.5 million, or 34 cents per share, in the prior-year period.

Annual revenue increased 26 percent to $19.4 million from $15.4 million in 2005.

Shares of Sutron gained 27 cents, or 3.6 percent, to $7.18 in afternoon trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market, down from its new high of $9.85 earlier in the session. The stock had previously traded in a 52-week range of $6.40 to $8.79.
