ORANGE COUNTY EARNINGS : Applied Data Posts Another Quarter Loss

October 25, 1985

Continued softness in the personal computer market has left Applied Data Communications with lower earnings for its second quarter and the first half of its fiscal 1986, the Tustin company reported Wednesday.

Net income for the quarter was $119,000, down 41% from $201,000 a year earlier. Revenues to $2.76 million, down 18% from nearly $3.4 million for fiscal 1985's second quarter.

Net income for the first six months fell 62%, to $201,000 from 538,000 a year ago. Revenues were $5.9 million, a decline of 14% compared with $6.85 million in revenues for the six-month period last year.

The company has been reporting reduced earnings for more than a year, but previously announced reductions in the company's operating costs, including a 10% reduction in its work force, have enabled Applied Data to earn a profit, Pat Kane, the company's president, said.

Kane also revealed that Robert T. Wall has resigned from the board of directors to pursue other business interests and that a company committee is searching for a replacement.

ADC designs, manufactures and markets equipment for duplicating diskettes and equipment for testing various disk drives.
