Norton, Massachusetts, March 3, 2022. CPS Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:CPSH) today announced revenues of $6.2 million and an operating profit of $312 thousand for the quarter ended December 25, 2021. This compares with revenues of $4.2 million and an operating loss of $291 thousand for the quarter ended December 26, 2020. For the year ended December 25, 2021 revenues were $22.4 million with an operating profit of $513 thousand. This compares to revenue of $20.9 million and operating profit of $914 thousand for the year ended December 26, 2020.
Michael McCormack, President and CEO, said: “Revenues in the fourth quarter 2021 showed significant improvement over revenues in the third quarter of 2021, 13%, but even more significantly an increase of 50% over the fourth quarter of 2020. For the year we showed positive revenue growth reflecting our second highest annual revenue total in the company’s history. Further, our 2021 bookings were 165% of shipments. As such, we expect continued growth in 2022 beyond what we were able to accomplish in 2021.
We previously discussed several significant expenses that were incurred to streamline the business. While not yet fully implemented we did do enough so that 61% of our operating profit for the year was realized during the fourth quarter of 2021.
I would also like to mention that although our net after tax profit for the year was $3.2 million, this includes $2.7 million resulting from the reversal of our deferred tax valuation allowance. In 2018, due to recurring losses, it was judged “more likely than not” that CPS would be unable to use its deferred tax asset. As such, a reserve was set up against that asset and an additional loss of $3.0 million was incurred. Upon re-evaluation, based on the Company’s profitability and the expected growth of CPS over the next several years, we have now judged that it is “more likely than not” that CPS will be able to use the deferred tax asset and the remaining reserve of $2.7 million has been reversed.
As part of the Defense Industrial Base, CPS has been open and operating throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. To date all of our major customers remain open and operational. Although some have been negatively affected by the pandemic, others continue to grow. These observations do not mean that CPS will be unaffected by the pandemic going forward, but we continue to see demand increasing rather than declining. We remain very pleased with our 2021 performance and are optimistic about the long-term growth opportunities across all lines of business into Fiscal Year 2022.
Beyond Fiscal Year 2022, we are cautiously optimistic that our collective growth initiatives, specifically in longer-term new product development investments, will expand the current product lines both in terms of revenues and earnings. We have re-engaged with the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs having made several submissions and will continue to do so. Staff additions made in the fourth quarter of 2021 are also proving to be important players in the future growth of CPS. Lastly, we will make additional measured investments to increase the capacity of our current high volume manufacturing.”
