Identix reduces expectations for 2003

MINNETONKA, Minn.—Identix Inc. reported in December that sales figures to date indicate that the company’s 2003 fiscal second quarter results for the period ended Dec. 31, 2002, will fall below expectations.

The reasons, according to a company issued press release, are due to budgetary delays at the federal level, lack of federal grants for state and local projects and a delay in final state level certification of Identix’s full hand scanner.

Instead, Identix currently expects 2003 fiscal second quarter results to reflect revenue in the range of $20 - 23 million, compared with earlier projections of $27 million to $30 million in revenue.
