TSR, Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended May 31, 2020

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TSR, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSRI), a provider of information technology consulting and recruiting services, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended May 31, 2020.

For the quarter ended May 31, 2020, revenue decreased 5.0% from the same quarter last year to $14.8 million. Operating income for the current quarter was $350,000 as compared to an operating loss of $855,000 in the prior year quarter. Net income attributable to TSR for the current quarter was $421,000 as compared to net loss attributable to TSR of $601,000 in the prior year quarter. Additionally, net income per share for the current quarter was $0.21 compared to net loss per share of $0.31 in the prior year quarter.

For the year ended May 31, 2020, revenue decreased 6.7% from last year to $59.1 million. Net loss attributable to TSR for the current year was $1,126,000 as compared to net loss attributable to TSR of $1,336,000 in the prior year. Additionally, net loss per share for the current year was $0.57 compared to a net loss per share of $0.68 in the prior year.

Thomas Salerno, CEO, stated, “Revenue decreased 5.0% for the fourth quarter due to a decrease in the average number of consultants on billing with customers. However, cost of sales decreased at a greater rate than revenue, yielding an increase in gross profit. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $1,141,000 for the quarter. The decrease in SG&A was due to a significant decrease in legal expenses which had been incurred in connection with litigation and the contested proxy solicitation related to our 2018 annual meeting. Operating income for the current quarter was $350,000 as compared to an operating loss of $855,000 in the prior year quarter.

The Company benefited from a tax provision of the CARES Act which allows for the carryback of net operating losses. The Company had calculated the income tax benefit from the net operating loss for fiscal 2019 at the federal income tax rate of 21%, however, in prior years, taxes were paid at 34%. The new tax legislation created an additional income tax benefit in excess of $200,000. The combination of these changes resulted in net income of $421,000 in the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year compared with a loss of $601,000 in the prior year quarter.”

“Revenue decreased 6.7% for the year due to a decrease in the average number of consultants on billing with customers. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $744,000 for the year. The decrease in SG&A was offset by the decrease in gross profit of $647,000 from the reduced revenue and by the interest expense incurred from the line of credit established in November 2019 and the Paycheck Protection Program Loan received in April 2020. The Company also had an additional tax benefit in excess of $200,000 as described above. This resulted in a reduced loss of $1,126,000 in the current fiscal year compared with a loss of $1,336,000 in the prior year.”

“Like the whole US economy, the landscape for our services remains uneven and unpredictable. Even with the backdrop, one highlight I want to share is how proud I am of all the TSR employees who stepped up and created our Feed the Heroes program at the onset of the Corona Virus Pandemic. Through monetary donations from our employees and Board of Directors, we were able to raise thousands of dollars and feed approximately 2,000 front line workers that were battling COVID-19 at ten local hospitals, local police departments, and local transit and sanitation departments. As hard as this time has been for everyone, I am pleased the TSR team scored a small win for local restaurants while supporting our hometown heroes.”

The Company will file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020 today with further details at www.sec.gov.
