HERNDON, Va., June 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Command Security Corporation (NYSE MKT:MOC) today reported its financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

Revenues for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014, were $156,710,517, compared with revenues of $150,218,967 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, an increase of 4.3%. Operating income for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, was $2,621,806, or 1.7% of revenue, compared with operating income of $1,669,153, or 1.1% of revenue, in the prior fiscal year. Net income for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 was $1,109,746, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, compared with $496,320, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014, were $38,162,493, compared with revenues of $37,482,094 in the same period of the prior fiscal year, an increase of 1.8%. Operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $35,923 compared with an operating loss of $281,867 in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014, was $137,428 or $0.01 loss per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $417,874 or $0.05 loss per basic share and $0.04 loss per diluted share in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

The increase in revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, compared with the prior fiscal year was due primarily to the expansion of services provided under a contract with a major transportation company, the addition of new revenues from New York based medical care facilities, expansion of aviation services with existing customers related to temporary construction related security services at both LaGuardia and Los Angeles LAX airports, partially offset by a net decrease in aviation related services with several domestic and international airlines operating primarily at Dallas Ft. Worth DFW, New York's LaGuardia and JFK airports, and Los Angeles LAX airport.

The increase in operating income for the year ended March 31, 2014, compared with the prior fiscal year was driven by the increase in revenues and a decrease in general and administrative expenses. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was due mainly to the absence of approximately $1.9 million of relocation and restructuring costs incurred in the prior year in connection with the relocation of the Company's headquarters to Herndon, VA partly offset by increased legal defense costs incurred in connection with legal matters related to on-going suits filed against the Company by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Service Employees Health and Welfare Trust Fund, other legal costs incurred in connection with employment related claims settlements, increased consulting and professional fees incurred in connection with the Company's recently announced investment in Ocean Protection Services and increased information systems related costs incurred as part of our initiatives to improve and streamline systems. 

Craig P. Coy, Chief Executive Officer of Command Security, said, "This has been a very busy year of transition.  Our new corporate team worked diligently on several streamlining efforts, such as revamping and upgrading our enterprise system to improve our operational tasks and increase visibility into our performance.  Operationally, we have consolidated and realigned the organization to focus on our general security and our aviation markets.  We've overhauled our website and our marketing material to improve our 'go to market' message.  Although we did not retain a large contract in the west, our strengthened sales team booked a total of approximately $44 million of new business and renewals of which approximately one-half is new business."

Tom Kikis, Chairman of the Board, added, "Our investment in OPS is an important strategic step for the Company and allows us the opportunity to expand our service and product offerings into a new and emerging market that offers growth and the potential for margins in excess of what the company has historically achieved while also providing an entry into another important part of the security services industry."
