TSR, Inc., (Nasdaq: TSRI) a provider of computer programming consulting services, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended May 31, 2010.
For the quarter ended May 31st, revenues increased 2.1% from the same quarter last year to $9.6 million. Consolidated net income attributable to TSR decreased from $93,000 in the prior year quarter to $6,000 in the current quarter. Additionally, earnings per share decreased from $0.02 to less than one cent.
For the year ended May 31st, revenues decreased 13.7% from the prior year to $37.0 million. Consolidated net income attributable to TSR decreased from $621,000 in the prior year to $143,000 in the current year. Additionally, earnings per share decreased from $0.15 to $0.04.
Joe Hughes, CEO, stated, “The increase in revenue for the fourth quarter of 2.1% resulted primarily from increased billing rates. However, the average number of consultants on billing with customers declined from 227 for the quarter ended May 31, 2009 to 218 for the current quarter. Additionally, expenses increased at a greater rate than revenue, resulting in net income attributable to TSR of only $6,000.
“The broad based economic downturn has had a serious impact on our bottom line. While customers’ IT spending during our 2010 fiscal year does not appear to be declining the way it had in prior fiscal years during the economic downturn, any improvements appear to be slow and uncertain and we expect the economic conditions to continue to adversely affect earnings into our next fiscal year.”
