Hi Roy,

Let's take it one step at a time.

1) Communication sales get us in the black.

2) Fog provides 20-25 % growth rates

3)Mr Dalton implements fiber optic patent into many optical products and we get a multiple like JDSU or NEWP gets.


Of course by then I'll be living in the gulf of Mexico on my 62 foot Hatteras with twin 26" radomes with Trac Vision on one and Trac Phone on the other.Hopefully Mr Trimble can sell me one of his Navigation systems - unless of course KVH has one for sport boats by then.I'll put it right next to my Azymith 2000 digital compass.


I think it is really exciting that Kit can attract such high caliber brains as consultants and directors.

It is also neat to see KVH's products rotate from high dollar toys to communication devices and fog electrical current sensors.

Thanks for the great post!!!

Bob

P.S. I picked up some more KVHI as it dipped below 6 - didn't get enough as it popped up and quit trading. Not much float out there anymore.

I think we're due for a pop soon.

PEOPLE! Do you realize what it means when a man of this stature joins the KVH advisory board and says this!

""I was impressed by KVH's photonic fiber technology and ideas for improving that technology, so I accepted the position and am looking forward to providing input on their ongoing product developments," commented Dr. Dalton."

and when our CEO says this!

"His insight will accelerate our efforts in the optical omponents market for,b> all-fiber optical networking. It is a tremendous honor for us to have someone of his stature helping guide our new fiber optic product developments by sitting on our technical advisory board."

You will when you look through these links.


Oh my! Look at this!

"The materials are used to create polymeric electro-optic modulators, or "opto-chips." These microscopic devices perform functions such as translating electrical signals -- television, computer, telephone and radar -- into optical signals at rates up to 100 gigabytes per second (a gigabyte is 1 billion bytes).

Polymeric electro-optic materials can achieve information-processing speeds as great as 10 times those of current electronic devices and have significantly greater bandwidths than electro-optic crystals currently in use.

In addition, the new materials require a fraction of a volt of electricity to operate, less than one-sixth what the crystals require."

Polymeric Electro Optic Modulators that have bandwidth to burn - use next to no electricity and don't create heat.

Sounds like Agilents bubble switch is "old tech".

I love it - it gets my Chromophores winking.


This is that optic multiple I been dreaming about.Kits just has to be a class genius to retain these quality people.


Thanks Sector, your nose for detail available on the web is outstanding and completly enjoyable.Yes it is also overwhelming- thanks for your hard work.<vbg>

Green Deep Green and lots of it!!! HEHEHEHEHEHE

This stock is such a high potential sleeper.Ticks me off that you caught my bid the other day.

There is very little stock out there to buy.I think its for good reason.

Yup, I wonder where it all went? <g> I'm not about to let mine go too cheaply.

There are a number of MRVC'ers accumulating on the quiet. I tried for another 1K at $6 1/16 most of the day today, but no one would sell to me.

I wonder what will happen when BIG news (the kind the market understands) hits? (although if you can read between the lines and wait about 9 months, today's news was BIG)

Toto, we aren't in Kansas anymore!

KVH Announces 3rd Quarter 2000 Results Quarterly Sales Increase of 56% Drives Return to Profitability
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 19, 2000--KVH Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) today announced that the company generated net income of $18,238 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2000. The company's return to profitability resulted from strong growth in communications and military sales, improvements in gross margin and lower operating expenses during the quarter.

``We made significant investments in R&D over the past three years and we are pleased to see those investments driving sales growth and most importantly, producing profitable results. Mobile Satellite product sales continued to demonstrate strong growth and a rebound in military navigation sales also contributed to our profitability,'' said Martin Kits van Heyningen, president and CEO.

Total revenues for the third quarter increased 56 percent to $7.5 million from $4.8 million in the 1999 period. Quarterly gross profits increased to $3.0 million from $1.5 million and gross margin as a percentage of net sales improved to 40 percent from 31 percent in 1999. Total operating expenses remained nearly flat at about $3.0 million in both the 2000 and 1999 third quarters. The 2000 third quarter operating income was $86,361 compared to $1.6 million loss in 1999. Net earnings for the 2000 third quarter of $18,238 or $0.00 per share compare to a net loss of $1.0 million or $0.14 per share in 1999.

For the nine months ending September 30, 2000, total revenues increased 22 percent to $21.1 million from $17.3 million in the 1999 period. Gross profits increased to $7.8 million from $5.9 million and gross margin as a percentage of net sales increased to 37 percent from 34 percent. Year-to-date total operating expenses increased to $9.1 million from $8.4 million in 1999. The year-to-date operating loss declined to $1.4 million in 2000 from a $2.5 million loss in 1999. A net loss year-to-date of $1.0 million or $0.13 a share compares to a net loss of $1.5 million or $0.21 per share in 1999.

According to Chief Financial Officer Richard Forsyth, ``We anticipate the positive sales trends that we experienced in the third quarter to continue into the fourth quarter of this year. We worked hard at controlling spending in the third quarter and succeeded in decreasing quarterly operating expenses as a percentage of revenues in every cost category. We realized an R&D expense savings of 24 percent over the prior year as we offset internal research spending with customer funding. Current research efforts related to our Mobile Broadband and Photonic Fiber projects are beginning to accelerate and we anticipate that R&D expense will return to historic levels beginning in the fourth quarter of 2000.''

KVH is webcasting its third quarter 2000 conference call live at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time today through the company's web site at kvh.com. The audio also will be archived at the company web site within three hours after the call is completed.
