C-COM Reports Profit in Second Quarter

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CMI), a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended May 31, 2014.

Revenues for Q2 were $3,754,738 and the company generated a net after tax profit of $782,188 or 2 cents per share. This compared to Q2 2013 when total revenues were $4,795,627 with a net after tax profit of $966,997 or 3 cents per share, representing a decrease of 21.9% in revenues and 19.1% in net after tax profit.

C-COM had an income tax provision of $500,820 in fiscal 2014, versus $428,463 in fiscal 2013.

The working capital of the Company at May 31, 2014 has increased 12.8% to $19,149,209 compared to $16,975,564 at May 31, 2013.

"This is our 40th profitable quarter out of the last 41 quarters," said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite System Inc.. "While this year's second quarter results are lower than last year's, historically this quarter of our fiscal year is slow. The second quarter of fiscal 2013 was the Company's second largest in the company's history.

Revenues increased approximately $1.4 million over Q1 2014. The continued profitability during the second quarter of 2014 is largely attributable to repeat orders from our large base of loyal customers worldwide", continued Klein. We are signing up new resellers and opening new vertical markets with our next generation products which are contributing to this revenue growth.

The Company also announced the payment of an eligible dividend in the amount of $0.0125 per common share payable on August 21, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of August 7, 2014. Based on its closing price of $1.44 per share on July 21, 2014, this quarterly dividend would provide a yield of 3.47% on an annualized basis. This dividend is part of the Company's ongoing practice of returning value to its shareholders through a quarterly dividend.
