Essex Corp.

This Columbia-based diversified technology compan reported a small second-quarter profit after posting a loss in the same period last year.

Revenues declined 30 percent during the period, partly because of the loss of a Department of Energy training contract in November 1991. Essex said the General Accounting Office recently upheld the company's protest that the competition was flawed. Relief has not been determined. Essex noted recovery of certain costs on previously completed contracts, lower costs of medical benefits and income from sale of a temporary staffing operation.

Microprose Inc.

This Hunt Valley-based developer of entertainment software reported a net loss of $1.3 million, or 19 cents a share, for the first fiscal quarter, which ended June 30.

The company said June 29 that a loss for the quarter was expected. Microprose attributed the loss to a company decision to delay introduction of several products. Those products are now in final testing.

During the first quarter, Microprose acquired the assets and business of Vektor Grafix, a small Leeds, England-based software developer.
