For the first six months of fiscal 2009, total revenue increased 9% to $10.6 million from $9.71 million for the first six months of fiscal 2008. The revenue increase was primarily due to a 10% increase in product sales to $9.42 million for the first half of fiscal 2009 from $8.58 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the first half of fiscal 2009 was $4.20 million, or $0.88 per diluted share compared to $3.23 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2008.
"We are pleased with our strong quarterly results,'' said NVE President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel A. Baker, Ph.D. "Increases in product sales and contract research and development revenue drove record earnings.''
