Costar Technologies, Inc. Announces Financial Results For the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2019


COPPELL, Texas, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Costar Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Markets Group: CSTI) announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 that have been reviewed by the independent accounting firm BKD, LLP.

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2019

President and Chief Executive Officer, James Pritchett stated, "We experienced a significant rebound in revenue from our unusually low first quarter, which was negatively impacted by severe weather conditions across the United States that postponed projects creating order delays for our CohuHD segment. Some of the delayed orders were shipped in the second quarter with the balance expected to be fulfilled in the second half of the year. Our Arecont Vision business recovered from the effects of its bankruptcy filing and delivered strong positive results, recording its first positive EBITDA since we acquired the business last year. We are excited about the remainder of 2019 as Arecont Vision's financial performance continues to improve and we move into our historically strong second half of the year."

Scott Switzer, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "While the turnaround has been labor-intensive, we are thrilled to report that AVC went from a loss of $2.3 million dollars in the first quarter to nearly break even in the second quarter. It's a real testament to the team moving from 28% gross profit margin to 43% over the same period. We look forward to the rest of the year where we expect AVC to be a significant contributor to the profitability of the Company."

The Company's outside independent auditors completed their analysis of the Company's financial condition. The Independent Auditor's Review Report, including financial statements and applicable footnote disclosures, is available on our website at www.costartechnologies.com.
