PCS Edventures Inc. Discusses EBITDA Positive Q3
Executive management discusses company profitability.
Boise, ID, February 26, 2015 — PCS Edventures, Inc. (PCSV), a leading K12 education company focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math solutions for the K12 market, released its 10-Q for FY2015 Q3 on February 11th, 2015. The results were a $18,184.77 EBIDTA positive quarter for the company that has made large investments in market development as well as product development over the past 18 months. The positive results come in a quarter that is typically a down quarter for the company due to the drop in traditional K12 domestic sales during the Oct-Dec holiday season.
Robert Grover, Co-CEO of PCS, said of the results, “In the past 18 months we have been investing in product R&D, expanding our International footprint through larger contracts in the Middle East, and expanding our domestic sales force focusing on STEM product sales. We have also continued to reduce overhead and trim operational costs in all ways possible while simultaneously improving product efficiencies. The positive quarterly results indicate that our overall strategy which involves the monetizing of our core STEM technologies and solutions through multiple avenues is working. We are now seeing growing revenue streams from retail robotics, International contracting, domestic learning labs, and domestic educational sales, all of which work together to create a business model with multiple points of scalability. We are establishing a foundation for future growth that leverages our core competencies in many ways.”
Russelee Horsburgh, Vice President of PCS, said “Revenues for three months ended December 31, 2014 increased by $433,983 (125%) to $782,322, as compared to revenues during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 of $348,339. All revenue streams showed growth, with $304,339 in International contract sales and $87,795 in domestic sales growth as the biggest gains. These same International contracts produced a marked improvement in our gross profit margin this quarter.”
Todd Hackett, Co-CEO, said regarding the third quarter results that he found it very encouraging to have positive growth in what is normally known as a difficult quarter. The increased contract and sales activity has helped to develop more market strength and will ultimately further company growth. Optimism is even higher as the company looks toward a strong fourth quarter.
PCS Edventures concludes its fiscal year on March 31st and will be providing further information and discussion on the company’s progress in April.
