Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer, commented, "In 2016 we achieved continued profitable growth, including record operating profit, and we significantly strengthened our balance sheet. As a further indicator of the underlying strength of our business, we have restored deferred taxes to our balance sheet as of year-end. 2016 is our third consecutive profitable year and we believe that the strength of our business will enable us to realize the benefit of our deferred tax asset balances from future profitability including from our net operating loss carryforwards.

"Mobile point of sale (mPOS) applications continue to be the primary driver of our barcode scanning sales, but we are also seeing our application developers focus more on areas outside of mPOS, including Manufacturing, Field Service, and Transportation. These are emerging growth areas for Socket as investments in smartphones and tablets used in line-of-business applications are gaining traction and growing year over year. In 2016, our cordless barcode scanning business continued to be driven by growth in mobile business applications running on Apple, Android and Windows-based smartphones and tablets, and we expect this trend to continue. These applications are developed by registered third party developers using our software developer kit to integrate our products into their applications to solve a business problem or improve a business process. We continue to attract new mobile application developers worldwide.

"Operating expenses increases of 15.7% in 2016 reflect costs of expanding our new product development program and additional investment in personnel as we prepare for growth.

"During the year we expanded our product line with a new family of products that strengthen our offerings in non-mPOS markets. This includes our DuraScan™ rugged barcode scanners designed for use with smartphones and tablets that have a weatherproof IP54 rating and level of durability and usability to match the demands of these markets. We also introduced our DuraCase solution that securely attaches our attachable barcode scanners to a smartphone or iPod as a one-handed, dedicated barcode scanning solution, ideal for many inventory based applications. We will be expanding the availability of DuraCase to additional Apple and Android Smartphones this year. We are pleased with the strong market reception to these new products and expect them to be revenue growth drivers in 2017.

"This year we also plan to introduce our D600 contactless reader/writer to facilitate the use of NFC and other contactless technology in business applications. With this product, Socket Mobile will be enabling our many developers to expand beyond barcode reading and serve the need for mobile reading of contactless tickets and other contactless systems. While it will take time for our developers to build this capability into their applications, we expect these products to become contributors to our revenue growth starting in 2018. 

"Our primary goals for 2017 are to continue to attract and support mobile application developers with data collection products designed for the mobile markets they serve and to achieve continued growth and profitability," Mills concluded.
