CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: CPSH) today announced revenues of $6.1 million and an operating profit of $208 thousand for the Fourth Quarter ended December 29, 2018. This compares with revenues of $3.8 million and an operating loss of $396 thousand for the Fourth Quarter ended December 30, 2017.

Revenues for the year ended December 29, 2018 totaled $21.6 million compared with $14.6 million for the year ended December 30, 2017. The operating loss for the year narrowed to $0.9 million in fiscal 2018, compared with an operating loss of $1.9 million in fiscal 2017.

Grant Bennett, President and CEO, said, “In the Fourth Quarter we achieved a 60% increase in revenue versus last year, generated our largest operating profit in three years and paid off our line of credit. These results reflect a continuation of the momentum we begin in the first quarter last year, resulting in a 48% revenue gain for the full year versus 2017 with increasing margins from the first quarter through the fourth.”

Mr. Bennett continued, “Despite the strong operating performance and expected future performance, we have established a reserve against nearly all of our $3 million deferred tax asset based on available evidence, primarily historical losses. That being said, it is critical to point out that the establishment of this reserve has no effect on cash, has no impact on the tax return and does not dilute existing tax credits, most of which do not expire until 2030.”

Finally, Mr. Bennett added: “As we look forward this year and next, we see several growth opportunities. Traction is our largest end market and it is growing. In China, rail spending is projected to growth rapidly, an estimated 45% in 2019 alone. The AlSiC market in Japan is estimated to be the size of the market in Europe and we are quoting business that could become meaningful as soon as later this year. In addition, we expect our participation in the defense and aerospace sectors will continue to grow for several years into the future.”

The Company will be hosting its fourth quarter conference call with investors at 4:30PM today.
