Command Security Corporation Reports Financial Results for Three Months Ended June 30, 2015

HERNDON, Va., Aug. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Command Security Corporation (NYSE MKT: MOC) today reported its financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were $33.7 million compared with revenues of $37.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $4.8 million (14.3% of revenues) compared with $5.5 million (14.5% of revenues) for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.5 million (1.6% of revenues) compared with operating income of $1.2 million (3.1% of revenues) for the three months ended June 30, 2014.  Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.3 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared with $0.7 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

The decrease in revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2015, was primarily due to the loss of the Western region services contract with a major transportation company effective May 31, 2014, and a decline in healthcare related security services partly offset by increases in aviation and construction related security services.

The decrease in operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as compared with the three months ended June 30, 2014 was driven primarily by the aforementioned loss of the Western region services contract with a major transportation company and the reduction in healthcare related security services, partly offset by increases in aviation and construction related services.

The decrease in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to June 30, 2014, was due to the aforementioned decrease in operating income and a decrease in equity earnings of Ocean Protection Services (OPS), partly offset by a reduction in income taxes.  The decrease in equity earnings of OPS was primarily driven by a reduction in total missions during the quarter ended June 30, 2015, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2014, as well as changes in the number and composition of assigned security personnel.  

Craig P. Coy, Chief Executive Officer of Command Security, said, "We continued to work on  fundamental business improvement principles  with our focus on operational performance, customer satisfaction and process improvements in every functional area of the Company.  For example, the implementation of our new CommandTrack™ mobile operating platform provides real-time visibility and operational efficiencies for our customers and managers.  We also consolidated regional command centers into a single national operations center utilizing our integrated enterprise operating system.  Our emphasis on new opportunities for growth and enhanced operating capabilities remains a high priority.”
