The Company's revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $6.2 million versus $6.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, an increase of 4%. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $827 thousand or $0.16 per diluted share, versus $858 thousand or $0.16 per diluted share, for the comparable period last year.
Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said,
"We are very pleased to report record sales for any first quarter in the Company's history. This is in comparison to our highest growth quarter last year. While our base business experienced a moderate decrease in the quarter, new business was healthy and in fact, accounted for all the gain in the quarter. We maintained tight cost control, but also continued to make investments in sales and marketing and in research and development.
"We continue to have a strong balance sheet with more than $4.7 million in cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2012 and no long term debt.
"Our directors share our confidence in the long-term future of Psychemedics and remain committed to rewarding shareholders and sharing the financial success of the Company with them as we move forward.
"Therefore, the Board has declared a $0.15 dividend for the quarter. This is our 63rd consecutive quarterly dividend. In addition, we continue to have a share buyback program in place."
