ProDex Inc. (PDEX) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2010-12-31. Prodex Inc. has a market cap of $6.9 million; its shares were traded at around $2.19 with and P/S ratio of 0.3.



Highlight of Business Operations:

Selling expenses decreased $2,000 to $351,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 from $353,000 for the corresponding period in 2009. This change was attributable in part to increases in selling expenses between periods for costs of improvements made in the 2010 period to our website amounting to $56,000 and increased participation in trade shows that resulted in an increase of $13,000 from 2009 to 2010. These increases in 2010 were offset by a decrease from 2009 to 2010 in salary expense amounting to $71,000 arising from a current vacancy in our Vice President Sales position.

General and administrative expenses decreased $42,000, or 4%, to $897,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 from $939,000 for the corresponding period in 2009, due primarily to the patent impairment charge of $140,000 recognized during the 2009 period. In addition, severance expense increased by $112,000 in the 2010 period over the 2009 period.

Research and development cost increased $29,000, or 5%, to $605,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 from $576,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2009. The increase was due primarily to increased small motor development costs of $33,000.

Based on the fluctuations discussed above, net income for the three months ended December 31, 2010 was $401,000, or $0.12 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively, as compared to net income of $580,000, or $0.18 per share on a basic and diluted basis, for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

Selling expenses increased $134,000 to $775,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2010 from $641,000 for the corresponding period in 2009. Costs of improvements to our website, increased advertising expenses, and increased participation in trade shows resulted in increases of $121,000, $70,000 and $36,000, respectively, from 2009 to 2010. These increases were offset by a decrease in salary expense, amounting to $115,000, arising from a current vacancy in our Vice President of Sales position.

General and administrative expenses decreased $6,000 to $1,660,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2010 from $1,666,000 for the corresponding period in 2009, due primarily to the patent impairment charge of $140,000 recognized during the 2009 period. In addition, bonus accruals and employee stock option expense decreased by $69,000 and $59,000, respectively, in the three-month period ended December 31, 2010 from the corresponding period in 2009, and severance and legal expenses increased by $112,000 and $82,000, respectively, in the 2010 period over the 2009 period.
