11:23 EDTDAKTDaktronics responds to ICS-CERT Vanguard alert
Daktronics reported that recently a small number of North Carolina Department of Transportation Daktronics Vanguard dynamic message signs were compromised. As a result, on June 5, the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team, or ICS-CERT, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, issued an alert referencing a hardcoded password in the Vanguard controller as the primary cause. The ICS-CERT later clarified the alert on Friday, June 6, stating the password is not hardcoded but is a default password that display owners should change upon installation. The company said: "While the recommendations provided by the ICS-CERT are commonly known as best practices for all display network owners, the alert itself is only applicable to transportation agencies using variable or dynamic message signs. United States transportation system device standards require manufacturers of variable or dynamic message signs to meet unique specifications that are not applicable to other Daktronics products and control systems. We appreciate our customers' continued trust in Daktronics and look forward to discussing any questions or concerns they may have regarding their Daktronics display."

07:35 EDTDAKTDaktronics reports Q3 EPS 1c, consensus 9c
Reports Q3 revenue $118.1M, consensus $128.7M. The company said: ""While our third quarter is historically our lightest for revenue, this year we also experienced an operating loss for the quarter, which is uncommon. We were able to grow sales by 2.4% during the quarter as compared to fiscal 2014, but at a lower gross profit margin rate. A portion of the quarter-over-quarter margin decline is due to higher fixed costs in our manufacturing and services departments. Some of this increase is due to overall salary and benefit increases and a portion relates to the additional operating costs of Data Display, which was acquired in the second quarter. Margins continued to be impacted by the overall competitiveness in the market place as well as the sales mix. In the third quarter, we worked on larger-dollar projects which typically have lower margins due to the competition of the bid and the installation service mix. Orders declined for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Order swings by quarter are not unusual and are often caused by specific large project transactions, especially in our Live Events, Commercial, and International business units."
