CPS Technologies Corporation Announces First Quarter 2014 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: CPSH) today announced revenues of $6.0 million and net income of $248 thousand for the quarter ended March 29, 2014. This compares with revenues of $5.0 million and net income of $3 thousand for the quarter ended March 30, 2013.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 was $1.5 million or 26% of sales compared with $914 thousand or 18% of sales in the first quarter of 2013. This improvement in margin was due to in large part to the 19% increase in revenues, and, to a lesser degree, price increases on selected products.

Commenting on the results, Grant Bennett, President and CEO, said: "This was the fifth quarter in a row when sales and earnings have exceeded the same quarter for the previous year. Sales were higher in the first quarter versus last year to all major customers with our traction business being particularly strong. The continued strength of our base business provides funds and momentum for us to aggressively pursue new opportunities. During the quarter we hired new exclusive sales representatives to develop business in Israel as well as the mid-Atlantic and Rocky Mountain regions of the US. Although the very nature of our products requires time to generate a revenue stream, we are confident there are many unmet needs in each of these geographic areas -- none of which have had a CPS sales representative in the past."

Mr. Bennett continued, "During the quarter CPS sales and senior management personnel had meetings with existing and potential large customers in Europe, Taiwan and the U.S. -- all of which support our belief that the potential for our technology to solve thermal management problems is wide ranging and growing."
