CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results

NORTON, Mass., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:CPSH) today announced revenues of $5.2 million and a net loss of $257 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  This compares with revenues of $3.7 million and a net loss of $333 thousand for the quarter ended July 1, 2017.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $9.4 million compared with revenues of $6.6 million for the corresponding period a year ago.  The net loss for the six-month period in 2018 totaled $832 thousand compared with a net loss of $938 thousand for the corresponding period a year ago.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, commented, “Revenues for the second quarter represent the highest quarterly level in over two years and are 40% above the level achieved a year ago.  This continues the trend in the first quarter when revenues were up 46% versus the first quarter of 2017.”  Mr. Bennett continued, “Over the past year we significantly increased market share at existing customers.  These market share gains involved a more aggressive pricing strategy, a substantial investment in working capital and the need to add both direct labor and support personnel.  While these actions required a significant cash investment and have increased our breakeven point, we are confident that this growth strategy will generate significant value over the intermediate and long term.”

Mr. Bennett continued, “As we plan for the future, we expect key customers in our base business to enjoy significant growth and the Company to continue to capture the largest market share.   On top of this base business we are starting to realize the substantial growth potential in three other broad areas:  increased business with U.S. electronics defense contractors, penetration in both China and Japan, and opportunities to extend our proprietary technologies in armor and other industrial applications.”

The Company will be hosting its second quarter conference call with investors at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, August 1.  Those interested in participating in the conference call should dial:
