Henry Bros. Electronics (HBE) Announces Record Backlog of Approximately $50 Million

FAIR LAWN, N.J., July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Henry Bros. Electronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:HBENews), a turnkey provider of technology-based integrated electronic security solutions, today announced a record backlog of approximately $50 million at June 30, 2010 and booked orders during the second quarter ended June 30, 2010 in excess of $34 million (representing a 110% increase over booked orders reported in the second quarter of 2009).

All regions except Colorado showed an increase in bookings over the prior year. A significant amount of the increase relates to the public sector transportation vertical market. These new booked orders have driven the backlog at June 30, 2010 to a record level.

Jim Henry, CEO of Henry Bros., said, “Outside of our quarterly results, we typically do not release financial information intra-quarter; however, we felt the increase in our backlog and bookings are important metrics to communicate to the market as we enter the second half of 2010. We have also seen an increased dollar volume in proposals being written in the 2010 second quarter as compared with the first quarter this year. Although the market continues to be very price competitive, the increased bookings and resulting backlog make us optimistic about the remainder of the year as well as 2011, and supports the fact that we are back in the strong growth mode that we envisioned when we announced our 2010 guidance of $60 million-$65 million in revenues with operating margins of 4% – 5% for 2010.”
