CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2015 Results

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: CPSH) today announced revenues of $5.4 million and net income of $8 thousand for the quarter ended September 26, 2015. This compares with revenues of $6.1 million and net income of $194 thousand for the quarter ended September 27, 2014.

Revenues for the nine months ended September 26, 2015 were $16.3 million compared with revenues of $17.2 million for the corresponding period a year ago, a decline of 5%. Net Income for the nine month period in 2015 totaled $197 thousand compared with net income of $384 thousand for the corresponding period a year ago.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, commented, "During the third quarter there were three factors which significantly impacted our results. First, we incurred $200 thousand of sales returns of a new product for the oil and gas industry. These returns were due to issues related to introducing a new composite. Working closely with our customer, significant improvements were made by the end of the quarter. Secondly, we continued to be adversely affected by the strong dollar which was reflected in price reductions of approximately $200 thousand compared with the third quarter of 2014. And thirdly, the core business continued to show operational improvements which contributed to the fact that we generated cash and profits despite these headwinds."

Mr. Bennett continued, "During the past few months we continued to invest in future growth opportunities. We were awarded a $1 million order from the Army for additional armor panels for testing and evaluation which we expect to ship in the fourth quarter this year and the first quarter in 2016. We spent two weeks in Japan and China meeting with large potential customers and are excited about our opportunities there which we expect will generate significant business beginning toward the latter part of 2016. We also continued to make progress in developing new business with our rep network in the U.S."

The Company will be hosting its second quarter conference call with investors at 4:30 pm on Tuesday, November 3. Those interested in participating in the conference call should dial:
