TSR, Inc., (Nasdaq:TSRI) a provider of computer programming consulting services, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended August 31, 2010.

For the quarter ended August 31st, revenues increased 3.0% from the same quarter last year to $9.4 million. Consolidated net income attributable to TSR decreased from $63,000 in the prior year quarter to $22,000 in the current quarter. Additionally, earnings per share decreased from $0.02 to $0.01.

Joe Hughes, CEO, stated, “The increase in revenue for the first quarter of 3.0% resulted primarily from the average number of consultants on billing with customers increasing from 215 for the quarter ended August 31, 2009 to 222 for the current quarter. Expenses increased at a greater rate than revenue, primarily due to the hiring of additional technical recruiters, resulting in net income attributable to TSR of only $22,000.

“The broad based economic downturn has had a serious impact on our bottom line. While there are indications that the economy is improving, the outlook remains uncertain, particularly in light of continued weakness in the job market and high unemployment. Any improvements in the economy or IT spending appear to be slow and uncertain and we expect any improvements in our operating results to also be slow and uncertain.”
