Sponsored by Businesswire

TSR, Inc. (Nasdaq:TSRI), a provider of computer programming consulting services, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended August 31, 2019.

For the quarter ended August 31, 2019, revenue decreased 9.9% from the same quarter last year to $14.9 million. Net loss attributable to TSR for the current quarter was $663,000 as compared to net income attributable to TSR of $38,000 in the prior year quarter. Additionally, net loss per share for the current quarter was $0.34 compared to net income per share of $0.02 in the prior year quarter.

Christopher Hughes, CEO, stated, “Revenue decreased 9.9% for the first quarter reflecting a decrease in average billing rates for IT consultants on billing with customers resulting from a shift in business mix with fewer placements for high end skills across the customer base and reduced opportunities for administrative and clerical placements with a large customer. Cost of sales decreased at a lower percentage rate than revenue, yielding a decrease in gross margin. Customer demands for discounts and aggressive pricing combined with a competitive market environment have continued to apply downward pressures on gross margins. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $670,000 for the quarter. The increase in SG&A was due to an increase in professional and advisory fees of $766,000 in connection with various stockholder lawsuits and the contested proxy solicitation relating to our 2018 annual meeting, which was postponed as a result of these lawsuits and to allow additional time for the Board of Directors to consider the stockholder proposals to be brought before the annual meeting.”
