Traci Keiko Mitchell

Hi, everyone and thanks for joining our quarterly earnings conference call. I'm Traci Mitchell and I'm joined today by John Regazzi, our CEO; Lutz Henckels, our Chief Financial Officer and Executive VP.

Before we begin, I need to remind everyone that this conference call may include forward-looking statements, including statements about future results of operations and margins, future order growth and shipments. Actual results may differ significantly due to risks and uncertainties, such as delays with manufacturing and orders for our products and services, receipt or timing of future orders, cancellations or deferrals of existing orders, the company's capital needs, the trading of our common stock and the volatility and the market price of our common stock, results of pending or threatened litigation and general market conditions.

For further discussion, see our most current annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 30 2019, Part I, under the heading Risk Factors and Part II, under the heading Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

With those reminders in place, I would now pass the call on to John.

The contract includes a firm commitment for the first year's production valued at $2.9 million with options for the following years valued up to 5.5 million.

Finally, I just returned from attending an Industry Trade Show held in Washington DC, where the company was an exhibitor. Our business development team had numerous quality engagements with potential customers, who are now generally convinced the Giga-tronics solution can meet their advanced simulation needs.
