CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

/EIN News/ -- NORTON, Mass., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:CPSH) today announced revenues of $3.9 million and a net loss of $259 thousand for the quarter ended July 2, 2016.  This compares with revenues of $5.6 million and net income of $114 thousand for the quarter ended June 27, 2015.

Revenues for the six months ended July 2, 2016 were $9.2 million compared with revenues of $10.9 million for the corresponding period a year ago, a decline of 16%.  The net loss for the six- month period in 2016 totaled $62 thousand compared with net income of $188 thousand for the corresponding period a year ago.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, commented, “Although this revenue decline is consistent with comments offered during our conference call in May, the results are disappointing.  Early in Q2 demand for baseplates for power modules used in trains and wind turbines declined unexpectedly, surprising both us and our customers.  We experienced similar unexpected demand volatility in 2012; demand returned after several quarters. At that time economic uncertainty in Europe was the primary reason for the decline; there are some indications this is at least one factor today.  In Q2 demand in most other product families also declined slightly, but within the range of expected quarter-to-quarter volatility.  The underlying markets remain long-term growth markets and we view these declines as short-term.  However, we have moved quickly to reduce manufacturing personnel to align with current volumes, institute salary adjustments, and sharply curtail discretionary spending.  These actions will minimize the effects of depressed revenues on cash flow while at the same time allowing us to maintain our sales and technical resources essential for growth,”

Mr. Bennett continued, “We are pressing forward with our strategy to strengthen our sales and marketing reach and focus.  Our search for a Senior Vice-President for Business Development and Strategy is progressing well.  We have been pleased with the quality of the candidates, have begun interviewing and are targeting a decision by Labor Day.  We are confident our unique technologies have multiple applications globally and see this individual as key to focusing our resources on the most attractive opportunities.  One final note-in July we completed a major redo of our website (www.alsic.com) and have received positive feedback from both prospective customers and investors.”

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