CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: CPSH) today announced revenues of $6.1 million and net income of $194 thousand for the quarter ended September 27, 2014. This compares with revenues of $6.0 million and net income of $452 thousand for the quarter ended September 28, 2013.

Revenues for the nine months ended September 27, 2014 increased 5% to $17.2 million from $16.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013. Net Income for the first nine months of 2014 totaled $384 thousand, compared with net income of $691 thousand for the corresponding period in 2013.

Grant Bennett, CEO, commented, "We are pleased and excited about developments during the quarter. We saw the emergence of components used in oil and gas applications into a significant product line as shipments exceeded $500 thousand during the quarter. Although this business will be volatile from quarter to quarter, we expect it to be significant for the next several years. Another positive development during the quarter was our $600 thousand order for baseplates from Raytheon Corporation related to the Navy's Air Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) Program. The current contract covers the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) Phase of Raytheon's contract with the U.S. Navy. If the Navy exercises all options with Raytheon, we expect production orders which will last 5-10 years. The components for oil and gas applications and the contract with Raytheon have the potential to add two additional significant revenue streams to our existing product business."

Mr. Bennett continued, "Both of these contracts are good examples of the length of our sales cycle; we have been pursuing these opportunities for several years. We increased sales and marketing resources this year to begin the sales cycle for similar opportunities. During September and October we continued these initiatives by visiting with senior executives at major potential customers in both Europe and Asia. 

"As announced yesterday, we are delighted to welcome Tom Culligan to our Board of Directors. His experience most recently as CEO of Raytheon International Inc. and Senior Vice-President of Raytheon Company and previously with Honeywell, Lockheed, McDonnell-Douglas and Allied Signal, will be valuable as we pursue our growth strategy on a global landscape," said Bennett.

The Company announced last week that it will hold its quarterly investor conference call on October 29, 2014 at 4:30 P.M. (Eastern). Grant Bennett, Chief Executive Officer, and Ralph Norwood, Chief Financial Officer, will discuss the Company's financial results for the quarter.
