CPS Technologies Corporation Announces 2014 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) -  CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: CPSH) today announced revenues of $5.9 million and a net profit of $619 thousand for the Fourth Quarter ended December 27, 2014. This compares with revenues of $5.1 million and a net profit of $276 thousand for the Fourth Quarter ended December 28, 2013. 

Revenues for the year ended December 27, 2014 totaled $23.1 million compared with $21.4 million for the year ended December 28, 2013. Net income for the year totaled $1.0 million for both the fiscal years ended December 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, said, "We were very pleased with fourth quarter results as well as setting a revenue record for the year. In the fourth quarter our gross margin percentage rebounded to 26%, up from 22% in our third quarter when we experienced manufacturing inefficiencies.

"In 2014 a key objective was to broaden our salesforce. We added new sales representatives in Israel and in four regions in the USA. Although our sales cycles are long, the new sales representatives are bearing fruit in generating prototyping opportunities and design wins that will generate future growth. 

"We are making progress in diversifying into new market segments to both generate growth, and, through the portfolio effect, help moderate fluctuations in demand in individual segments. For example, in the fourth quarter shipments of fracking balls totaled $400 thousand and the final shipment of a component to the Raytheon Corporation for the development phase of the Advance Missile Defense Radar ("AMDR") program totaled $300 thousand. We believe that these two new products have the potential to be significant revenue streams in the years to come. However, the sale of fracking balls is very volatile as oil prices fluctuate and future sales of our AMDR component is dependent upon the Navy approval to advance the Program into the production phase.

Mr. Bennett continued, "Other important accomplishments in 2014 include generating cash to a level over $2 million at year end, the highest level in several years, qualifying for listing on NASDAQ as of January 8th, 2015, and adding Tom Culligan, retired Senior Vice-President of the Raytheon Corporation to our Board of Directors."
