CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) -  CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: CPSH) today announced revenues of $5.1 million and a net loss of $58 thousand for the quarter ended June 28, 2014. This compares with revenues of $5.3 million and net income of $236 thousand for the quarter ended June 29, 2013.

Revenues for the six months ended June 28, 2014 increased 8% to $11.1 million from $10.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013. Net Income for the six month period in 2014 totaled $190 thousand compared net income of $239 thousand for the first half of 2013.

Commenting on the results, Grant Bennett, President and CEO, said: "Last year at this time we announced that we had paid off bank borrowings which had been used during the downturn of our business in 2012 and confirmed that our base business had returned to previous levels. This year, with a cash balance in excess of $1 million and strong orders from customers in our base business, we have increased our investment in sales and marketing to more aggressively identify and pursue growth opportunities. This investment has taken the form of adding sales representation in a few regions in the U.S. as well as Israel, attending sales conferences in the U.S. and overseas and increasing the number of visits to existing and potential customers. We expect this investment to bear fruit down the road; however, since our sales cycle is relatively long, it will take a while for this initiative to show up in our financial results." 

Mr. Bennett continued, "This quarter is a good example of why short-term results can mask progress in achieving our longer term growth objectives. Revenues, for example, are influenced in the short run by the demand of our customers' customers and are seldom consistent throughout the year. Our manufacturing process is a complex one and there are periods, including the second quarter, when our yields and productivity are below our planned levels. That, coupled with higher repair, maintenance and operating supplies in the factory and previously mentioned increase in sales and marketing spending, resulted in a loss in the quarter. As we look forward, our base business remains strong and growing, we are encouraged by the advances we are making with products, particularly in the oil and gas and defense industries, and remain confident in our capabilities to meet thermal management needs in a wide variety of applications."
