TSR, Inc., (Nasdaq:TSRI) a provider of computer programming consulting services, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended February 28, 2011.
For the quarter ended February 28th, revenue increased 4.6% from the same quarter last year to $9.4 million. Net loss attributable to TSR increased from $6,000 in the prior year quarter to $67,000 in the current quarter. Additionally, loss per share increased from $0.00 to $0.03.
Joe Hughes, CEO, stated, “The increase in revenue for the third quarter of 4.6% resulted primarily from the average number of consultants on billing with customers increasing from 217 for the quarter ended February 28, 2010 to 238 for the current quarter. However, the net loss increased because recruiting expenses have increased at a greater rate than revenue, primarily due to the initial costs of hiring and training new recruiters. These initial costs are expected to continue for the balance of the fiscal year. The losses in the quarters ended February 28, 2011 and 2010 were primarily attributable to unemployment payroll taxes which are significantly higher in the first calendar quarter each year.”
