GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:A, ROP, GRMN, HXGBY, TRMB » details
Applied Energetics, Inc. is a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware. The company designs, develops and manufactures solid state Ultra Short Pulse ('USP') lasers for commercial applications and applied energy systems for commercial and military applications. Additionally, it develops and manufactures high-voltage systems for government and commercial customers for a range of applications. Upon its inception in 2002, it began developing LGE and LIPC technologies intended to precisely deliver high voltage electrical charges by using a laser to create a conductive path in the atmosphere. It has protected the enabling intellectual property through U.S. Patent filings. LGE development has been funded through multiple Department of Defense ('DoD') contracts in support of U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, and the Office of Secretary of Defense programs, as well as through internally funded research initiatives. During 2011, it continued the development and advancement of its LGE technology by working with its customer, the U. S. Army's Research, Development and Engineering Command ('ARDEC'). It has completed all contracted work authorized under the ARDEC contract. It have recently responded to ARDEC requests for proposal on contracts for development of its LGE technology; however, there is no assurance that a contract will be awarded. Historically, revenue was derived from contracts with Government agencies or contractors to the Government representing approximately 90% and 97%, of total revenue for 2011, and 2010, respectively. The significant reduction in Government funding for its LGE, LIPC and counter-IED technologies and systems has had, and will continue to have, a material adverse effect on Applied Energetics. It do not anticipate significant funding from its Government Customers in 2012 and thus continued operations will be dependent on funding from new customers yet to be developed. When it refers to 'Government' it means the U.S. Government and its agencies. At December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, it had a backlog (i.e., work load remaining on signed contracts) of approximately $390,000 and $3.3 million, respectively, to be completed within the twelve months following those dates. As February 29, 2012, its backlog was approximately $0.2 million. As a contractor and subcontractor to the Government, it is subject to various laws and regulations that are more restrictive than those applicable to non-Government contractors.
