Additionally, product development activity has completed a critical milestone on Titan’s next generation digital Guided Wave Radar product and market introduction is expected by the end of fiscal 2018’s second quarter.”

As well, in June 2017 engineering successfully completed the development of the Titan Gateway telematics offering. This new product is being released in the last quarter of fiscal 2017.
In fiscal 2017’s third quarter TD80 and ancillary product sales, the Company’s Guided Wave Radar signature product line, improved slightly compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2016, however are still materially lower than eight quarters ago. The Company’s quarterly revenues and operating loss for the last eight quarters continue to reflect the negative impact of lower oil and gas prices and the subsequent collapse in demand for new crude oil tankers. Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 decreased by 23% to $2,523,754 from sales of $3,266,521
in the comparative period.

This compares to a net loss of $799,112 and $1,808,772 respectively, in the comparative prior periods. The significant 58% and 64% reductions in the net loss in the respective current quarter and year-to-date were primarily due to the reduction in total expenses and improved gross profit, combined with the year-to-date impact of the $310,963 gain on the sale in the first quarter of the TPZ 3310 and 3500 controller product line.
In the current quarter and year-to-date the Company did not record a provision for income tax recoveries due to uncertainties related to the realization of tax loss carryforwards, whereas, losses in the comparative prior periods were reduced by income tax recoveries of $263,665 in the third quarter and $688,218 for the nine-month period of fiscal 2016.
