The Company’s revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2011 were impacted primarily by: (i) a full year of revenues in the current year period related to a contract that commenced at various dates during the prior year period to provide security services to a major transportation company; (ii) expansion of services provided to new and existing security customers and several airlines and (iii) rate increases at Los Angeles International Airport (“LAX”) in connection with higher wage and related benefit rates resulting from local living wage ordinances and a collective bargaining agreement. The increase in our revenues was partially offset by: (i) the loss of revenues associated with a contract with Delta Air Lines at John F. Kennedy International Airport (“JFK”); (ii) the loss of a contract to provide services to a major domestic airline carrier at Oakland International Airport (“OAK”) and (iii) reductions in service hours and rates of certain security and aviation services customers.The Company’s operating and net income for the three months and fiscal year ended March 31, 2011 compared to the corresponding periods of fiscal 2010 was impacted primarily by: (i) the loss of the aviation services contracts at JFK and OAK as noted above; (ii) higher wage and related benefit rates at LAX resulting from local living wage ordinances and a collective bargaining agreement which we were not able to fully recover through increases to our customer billing rates during the current year period and (iii) reductions in service hours and rates of certain security services customers. The decrease in operating and net income was partially offset by expansion of security services to a major transportation services company and of services provided to new and existing security customers and several airlines as discussed above. Commenting on the fiscal 2011 results, Barry I. Regenstein, President of Command Security, stated “Our financial performance in fiscal 2011 was essentially the same as in fiscal 2010, reflecting the impact from the continued challenging macroeconomic environment, as well as the loss of several large aviation services contracts, offset by consistent organic growth to new and existing security services customers which is continuing during the start of fiscal 2012. While we expect these difficult economic conditions will persist throughout our 2012 fiscal year, we continue to take measures that are designed to manage our expenses and streamline our cost structure. We believe these actions better position our business for long-term growth. As we begin fiscal 2012, we are very focused on the challenges we face as we continue to build our business nationally. Our efficient and effective security solutions, focused strategy and our strong culture, will remain the keys to our success in the coming year and beyond.” About Command Security Corporation Command Security Corporation provides uniformed security officers , aviation security services and support security services to commercial, financial, industrial, aviation and governmental customers throughout the United States.
