Executive Management Discusses Q1 Profitability and Board Expansion for FY2016
Boise, Idaho, August 13, 2015 — PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. (PCSV), a leader of K-12 STEM Education is excited to announce the results of its 10Q financial results for FY2016 Q1 ended June 30: Total revenues for Q1 were $1,291,219, up 29% from the same quarter in the prior year, which yielded an operating income of $233,000 and a net income of $130,000. The end results for the quarter are demonstrative of significant growth from FY2015.
Robert Grover, Co-CEO, said of the results, “PCS is on the right track. Because of commitment to product development, marketing focus, and now having featured products with a nationwide distribution partner, School Specialty, we expect to see increased sales in our STEM products. We’re also excited about new opportunities that we are exploring in advanced robotics such as drones, an area in which we have developed curriculum and supply chain partners.”
Russelee Horsburgh, Controller and Vice President, said “In addition to the 29% revenue increase, our ongoing cost-cutting measures contributed to our bottom line results through more effective utilization of resources, and efficient use of marketing dollars. Compared to the same quarter from last year, we reported operating expenses of $124,000 less accomplished through reduction in wages and G&A expenses. As a company, we continue to implement more rigorous programs for driving accountability, efficiency, and growth each quarter to continue this trend of positive earnings.”
Todd Hackett, Co-CEO stated, “It is encouraging to see that the efforts put forth to create a positive net income for the business over the last three months have been so successful. It is important that at this stage we aggressively grow the company and continue to innovate. I’m particularly excited about the opportunity that drone sales could bring to the company’s Q3 in the retail space. We are exploring this opportunity carefully. Let me stress that maintaining profitability is key. I feel it is time that all of our shareholders begin reaping the benefits from their continued support of PCSV.”
