Revisions in the estimated gross profits on contracts and contract amounts are made in the period in which circumstances requiring the revisions become known. During the three and six months ended October 31, 2013, the effect of such revisions in estimated contract profits resulted in an increase to gross profits of approximately $26,000 and $149,000, respectively, and during the three and six months ended October 31, 2012, the effect of such revisions resulted in an increase in gross profits of $1,047,000 and $1,563,000, respectively, from that which would have been reported had the revised estimates been used as the basis of recognition for contract profits in prior years.
 
Although management believes it has established adequate procedures for estimating costs to complete open contracts, additional costs could occur on contracts prior to completion.
