Revenue growth during the three months and fiscal year ended March 31, 2010 was primarily attributable to the following events:

  • Expansion of security services provided to new and existing customers, including several of the nation’s largest banks, a large grocery market distribution center in California, a company that provides merchandising and distribution services to a major grocery retailer in New Jersey, a world leader in electronic design automation and a worldwide innovative technology company; and
  • The acquisition of two security services businesses in Florida.

Commenting on the fiscal 2010 results, Edward S. Fleury, Chief Executive Officer of Command Security, stated, “We are encouraged with recent trends as reflected in our financial results in the fourth quarter, which included positive comparable sales, effective cost management and earnings growth. We continue to focus on strategically positioning the Company for growth and additional market penetration expected to result from prudently investing in sales & marketing, technology and acquisitions. Heading into fiscal 2011, we remain focused on investing across our business to better serve our customers which, in turn, will drive superior financial performance over the long term.”

Barry I. Regenstein, President of Command Security, stated, “As we move into fiscal 2011, we are better positioned to respond to market opportunities and move the Company towards reaching higher profitability. We remain focused on carefully managing our costs, achieving gross margin improvement and maintaining adequate liquidity to effectively manage our business regardless of the market direction.”
