TSR, Inc., (Nasdaq: TSRI) a provider of computer programming consulting services, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended February 29, 2012.
For the quarter ended February 29th, revenue increased 18.3% from the same quarter last year to $11.1 million. Net loss attributable to TSR increased from $67,000 in the prior year quarter to $93,000 in the current quarter. Additionally, net loss per share increased from $0.03 to $0.05.
Joe Hughes, CEO, stated, “Our revenue increase of 18.3% for the third quarter was overshadowed by an increase of 38.8% in the net loss for the period. The increase in revenue resulted primarily from the average number of consultants on billing with customers increasing from 238 in the quarter ending February 28, 2011 to 270 in the quarter ending February 29, 2012. The increase in the net loss was primarily attributable to an increase of cost of sales as a percentage of revenue and also to the increased expenses associated with hiring and training junior technical recruiters. The increase in cost of sales as a percentage of revenue resulted from far more demanding client specifications, billing rate reductions and other competitive pressures. These increased competitive pressures have negatively impacted our gross profit percentages, which pressures were evidenced in the current quarter by rate and margin reductions at several of our major financial services customers.”
