CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCBB: CPSH) today announced revenues of $3.6 million and a net loss of $373 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. This compares with revenues of $4.8 million and net income of $13 thousand for the quarter ended July 2, 2011.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 decreased 33% to $7.2 million from $10.7 million for the corresponding period in 2011. The net loss for the six month period was $907 thousand compared with net income of $29 thousand for the first half of 2011.

Mr. Bennett, CEO, said, "As a component manufacturer, our revenues in the short term are a function of demand for current products; our revenues in the intermediate and long term are a function of demand for current products plus demand generated by new design wins. To paraphrase Charles Dickens, who was referring to a previous European crisis, this year has been 'the best of times, the worst of times.' It is the best of times because we have achieved very significant design wins which will generate new demand in the future, including new demand in Q4 of this year and Q1 of next year. These design wins include several baseplates for hybrid automobiles, for example.

"It is 'the worst of times' because demand for current products, particularly in Europe which accounts for more than half our revenue, has declined throughout the year. None of our European customers have been able to accurately forecast the impact of the Euro crisis on customer demand and all surprises this year have been negative.

"Earlier this month we reduced employment in both manufacturing and overhead positions to match our costs to what we believe demand will be for the rest of this year. Our assessment of demand is based primarily on actual demand over the last few months rather than on customer provided forecasts which continue to show higher demand. Manufacturing personnel are currently operating 4 days a week because we believe we will need to respond quickly in Q4 to meet demand from new design wins and this can be done immediately by returning to 5 days a week.

"Related to the new design wins, we are also having success in expanding our customer base in Asia and Europe for our AlSiC components and hermetic package product lines. We remain confident and excited about future growth and profitability."
