Suisun City Operations Continue Profitability

SUISUN, CA – (Marketwired – September 13, 2017) – WPCS International Incorporated (NASDAQ: WPCS), a full-service low-voltage solutions provider in the business of developing, installing, and servicing integrated structured cabling, audio-visual, and security systems today announced that on September 12, 2017, it filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, for the three months ended July 31, 2017.

Sebastian Giordano, CEO of WPCS, commented, “We are pleased to report that for the three months ended July 31, 2017 our Suisun City Operations generated net income of $184,000.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended July 31, 2017

Revenue for the three months ended July 31, 2017 increased $107,000, or 3.1%, to $3,523,000, as compared to $3,416,000 for same prior year period due to an approximately $380,000 increase in revenue in Suisun City Operations offset by an approximately $273,000 decrease in revenue from our Texas Operations. We do not anticipate any further revenues from the Texas Operations since it was closed in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017.

The Company had a net loss from operations of $440,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2017 due primarily to an operating loss of $446,000 as well as interest expense of $2,000, which were partially offset by income of $8,000 from a legal settlement. This compared to net income from operations of $557,000 for the same prior year period, which was primarily due to the receipt of proceeds from a one-time legal settlement of $1,150,000.
