CSP Inc. Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Financial Results; Increased Direct Sales Capabilities for Aria Software-Defined Security (SDS) Solution Position Company for Growth in Fiscal 2020

LOWELL, Mass., Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSP Inc. (NASDAQ: CSPI), a provider of security and packet capture products, managed IT and professional services and technology solutions, reported revenue growth of 12.8% and 8.4% for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal 2019 full year ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

The Company also announced that its board of directors has voted to pay a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share to shareholders of record on December 31, 2019, payable on January 15, 2020.

“We had a solid year end and I believe our goal to transform CSPi to a cybersecurity and wireless managed services company is coming to fruition and we are well-positioned to achieve our near and long-term objectives,” commented Victor Dellovo, Chief Executive Officer.  “I am pleased with the initial roll-out of our ARIA™ Software-defined Security (SDS) solution and we are highly encouraged by the customer feedback.  Their positive experience validates CSPi’s vision and our efforts to increase the direct sales capabilities for ARIA will allow us to maintain this momentum.  Additionally, I believe the recent acknowledgement from CyberDefense Magazine, the premier source of IT security information, will create new revenue opportunities as in-bound requests have increased. We entered fiscal 2020 with a strong tailwind and this success gives me greater confidence that we will continue to execute our goals to further develop applications and enhance the performance of ARIA to drive customer adoption.  I also believe we are in a much stronger position today to deliver significant revenue growth and increased profitability, not only this year, but in the years to come.”

Fiscal 2019 Fourth Quarter Results

Revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter increased to $22.2 million from $19.6 million a year ago. Gross profit for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2019 was $5.1 million, or 23% of sales, compared with $4.8 million, or 24.7% of sales in the year-ago fiscal fourth quarter. Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $334 thousand, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with net income of $16.2 million, or $3.95 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.  The year-ago net income included a gain on sale of discontinued operations, related to the Germany sale, of $16.8 million. Excluding the gain, the Company’s continuing operations would have reported a net loss of $0.7 million, or $0.18 per share.

Fiscal 2019 Full Year Results

Revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019 increased 8.4% to $79.1 million compared to revenue of $72.9 million in fiscal year 2018.
