· Revenue in the second quarter of 2021 increased 21% to $2.1 million from $1.7 million in the same year-ago period, primarily due to higher demand for our custom products in the consumer and medical markets. Increases in product volume in the consumer market was due to an increase in our customers' demands and purchases on corresponding products and programs, while increased demand in the medical market was partly a reflection of the pandemic-impacted levels in the prior year.
· Gross margin decreased to 54.6% in the current quarter from 58.6% in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin is impacted by the mix of products and customers, and production costs.
· Income from operations was $133 thousand for the second quarter of 2021, compared with $41 thousand in the same period in 2020. Operating income was impacted by higher gross profit on higher revenues, offset partially by higher selling, general and administrative expenses associated with continued strategic investments in personnel and operational and administrative infrastructure.
· In the second quarter of 2021, after-tax net income was $63 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $13 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the same year-ago period.
· Interlink ended the quarter with $6.2 million in cash and cash equivalents.

'We are experiencing strong momentum evidenced by our 32% sequential quarterly revenue growth and our pipeline of new programs entering into mass production in the next six to twelve months,' said Steven N. Bronson, Chairman, President, and CEO of Interlink Electronics. 'We are also committed to augmenting our organic growth with acquisitions.

'Our goal is to build a diversified global technology organization consisting of sensors, test & measurement, engineering services, and specialty manufacturers of precision components and solutions,' added Mr. Bronson.
