CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: CPSH) today announced revenues of $6.0 million and net income of $452 thousand for the quarter ended September 28, 2013. This compares with revenues of $2.7 million and a net loss of $531 thousand for the quarter ended September 29, 2012.

Revenues for the nine months ended September 28, 2013 increased 64% to $16.3 million from $9.9 million for the corresponding period in 2012. Net Income for the nine month period in 2013 totaled $691 thousand, compared with a net loss of $1,438 thousand for the first nine months of 2012.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, commented, "This is the fourth consecutive quarter that we have achieved increases in revenues, gross margin, operating profit and net income while also generating positive cash flow. The percentage increases in revenues were well into the double digits for all major product lines for both the quarter and nine months versus 2012. While our business is and will continue to be volatile quarter to quarter, it is clear that demand for our products has returned to levels prior to the Eurozone crisis which significantly depressed our 2012 revenues. When demand declined in 2012 we retained professional staff and continued production line improvements; as a result our margins are higher today than prior to the crisis."

Mr. Bennett continued, "Our strategy is rooted in the belief that there are numerous opportunities for growth in metal matrix composites, the class of materials in which we are the world-wide market leader. While we continue to strengthen our strong relationships with customers in the traction and automotive sectors, we are also expanding our sales and marketing efforts in Japan where we see substantial opportunities with large electronic companies. In addition we are allocating increased resources to address new opportunities where our technology offers a compelling advantage such as the military and the oil and gas areas."

The Company announced last week that it will hold its quarterly investor conference call on November 5, 2013 at 4:30 P.M. (Eastern). Grant Bennett, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Ralph Norwood, Chief Financial Officer, will discuss the Company's financial results for the three months ended September 28, 2013.
