· Revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased 44% to $2.2 million from $1.5 million in the same year-ago period, primarily due to higher demand for our custom products in the industrial and medical markets, and also for our standard products. Revenue for the 2021 year-to-date period increased 18% to $5.9 million from $4.9 million last year, due to increased purchase levels across all the markets we serve. Increases in purchase volume by our industrial and consumer market customers was due to an increase in demands on corresponding products and programs, while increased demand in the medical market was a reflection of the pandemic-impacted levels in the prior year.
· Gross margin increased to 58.1% in the current quarter from 52.4% in the year-ago quarter, which was positively impacted by changes in product and customer mix. Gross margin for the current year-to-date period was relatively unchanged from the prior year.
· Income from operations was $259 thousand for the third quarter of 2021, compared with loss of $79 thousand in the same period in 2020. Operating income was impacted by higher gross profit on higher revenues and lower engineering expenses due to receipt of a research incentive grant from the Singapore government, and was offset partially by higher selling, general and administrative expenses associated with continued strategic investments in personnel and operational and administrative infrastructure, and increased legal and professional fees associated with pursuit of acquisitions.
· In the third quarter of 2021, after-tax net income was $223 thousand, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $65 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the same year-ago period.
· Interlink ended the quarter with $6.6 million in cash and cash equivalents.

"We are committed to pursuing acquisition opportunities to accelerate our growth and to diversify our products and customers.
