Command Security Corporation Reports Results For Third Quarter Of Fiscal 2013

Command Security Corporation (NYSE MKT: MOC) announced today its financial results for its third fiscal quarter of 2013 ended December 31, 2012.

Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2012 were $38,930,273, compared with revenues of $35,784,511 in the same period of the prior fiscal year, reflecting an increase of 8.8%. Operating income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $745,301, or 1.9% of revenue, compared with operating income of $469,864, or 1.3% of revenue, in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $353,648, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of $217,197 or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Revenues for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 were $112,736,873, compared with revenues of $106,678,724 in the same period of the prior fiscal year, reflecting an increase of 5.7%. Operating income for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $1,951,020, or 1.7% of revenue, compared with operating income of $2,132,025, or 2.0% of revenue, in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Net income for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $914,194, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared with $946,380, or $.09 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

The increase in revenues for the nine months ended December 31, 2012, compared with the same period of the prior fiscal year was due primarily to the following events:
  • Increased revenues associated with an expansion of services provided under a contract with a major transportation company;
  • Expansion of services with Delta Air Lines at LaGuardia Airport;
  • A new contract with a large municipal agency located on the west coast;
  • A new contract with an international air freight carrier at four domestic airport locations;
  • A new contract with a community college located in Pennsylvania;
  • A new contract with an airport located in upstate New York; and
  • Services provide to a major construction project located at a New York City metropolitan area airport.

The increase in revenues was partially offset by the following events:
  • The previously reported loss of a security services contract for a large Silicon Valley semiconductor equipment manufacturer’s facility in New York;
  • Reductions in service hours and rates associated with the renewal of a contract with a major international carrier at John F. Kennedy International Airport (“JFK”);
  • The absence in the current period of two large construction contracts at Los Angeles International Airport;
  • Reduction in service hours at a major New York City hospital; and
  • Loss of a service contract with a large international carrier at JFK in the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.

The decrease in operating income and net income for the three months and nine months ended December 31, 2012 as compared with the corresponding periods of the prior year was due primarily to $1,048,818 of additional accrued labor (mainly employee severance) and other related expenses associated with our previously disclosed plan to consolidate and relocate our corporate headquarters to Herndon, Virginia. Adjusting for these expenses, our adjusted operating income for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $1,047,087, or 2.7% of revenue, and $2,999,838, or 2.7% of revenue, respectively, and adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $504,239, or an adjusted $.05 per basic and diluted share, and $1,430,212, or an adjusted $.15 per basic and diluted share, respectively. Adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures; please see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for more information and the accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these financial measures to related GAAP metrics.

Craig P. Coy, Chief Executive Officer of Command Security, said, "I am very pleased with the progress we have made to strengthen our management team, improve our operating performance and consolidate our corporate offices. We’ve added new business with modest offsets from lost business due primarily to non-operational factors."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures.

In addition to financial measures determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we are providing certain non-GAAP measures for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012 for use in assessing our performance. These non-GAAP measures include: (i) adjusted operating income and (ii) adjusted net income, each of which have been adjusted to exclude the impact of certain non-recurring accrued labor charges and expenses related to our corporate headquarter relocation, and (iii) adjusted diluted earnings per common share, which we calculate as diluted earnings per share adjusted to exclude the estimated per share impact of the same specifically identified items used to calculate adjusted operating income and adjusted net income.

Our reported financial results for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012 include substantial non-recurring charges, primarily from accrued labor (mainly employee severance) and other related expenses associated with our previously disclosed plan to consolidate and relocate our corporate headquarters to Herndon, Virginia. We believe that presentation of operating results and related per share amounts exclusive of these costs provides useful supplemental information to facilitate the analysis of our core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The usefulness of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share as performance measures, however, is limited by the fact that they exclude the impact of certain charges and expenses. Therefore, these non-GAAP financial results should be considered as an addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We also use, and recommend that you consider, operating income and net income in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our performance. Finally, other companies may define adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share differently and, as a result, our measures of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share may not be directly comparable to adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share measures of other companies.
