23 Jul, 2013, 16:05 ET from Aware, Inc.

BEDFORD, Mass., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading supplier of biometrics software and services and DSL service assurance software products, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013. 

Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $4.9 million, an increase of 19% compared to $4.1 million in the same quarter last year. Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $307,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, which compares to net income of $54.9 million, or $2.49 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. Net income in the second quarter of 2012 included a gain on the sale of patent assets of $71.2 million.  Operating income before patent related income in the second quarter of 2013 was $283,000 compared to $119,000 in the second quarter of 2012.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, revenue increased 17% to $10.5 million, compared to $9.0 million in the same period a year ago.  Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $2.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. These results compared to net income of $56.0 million, or $2.60 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. Year-to-date net income in 2012 also included the aforementioned $71.2 million gain on the sale of patent assets.  Operating income before patent related income for the first six months of 2013 was $2.3 million compared to $1.2 million for the same period a year ago.

The improvement in operating income before patent related income in the three and six month periods this year compared to the corresponding periods last year was primarily due to increased profitability in our biometrics business and lower general and administrative expenses.

Rick Moberg, Aware's co-chief executive officer and chief financial officer, said, "We are pleased to report this is our eight consecutive profitable quarter on an operating and net income basis. We look forward to continuing to build our software and services business in upcoming quarters."
