The Company also announced a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share payable to shareholders of record as of August 22, 2011 to be paid on September 2, 2011.

The Company's revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $6.2 million versus $5.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, an increase of 15%. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $1.1 million or $0.21 per diluted share, versus $873 thousand or $0.17 per diluted share, for the comparable period last year, an increase of 25%.

Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said,
"Our second quarter results were strong, particularly since we were comparing against our highest growth quarter last year. New business was exceptionally healthy in the quarter. We continued to have robust margins including a 28% pre-tax margin. While we maintained tight cost control, we continue to make investments in sales and marketing.
We continue to have a strong balance sheet with more than $4.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments 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 $0.12 dividend for the quarter. This is our 60th consecutive quarterly dividend, which represents a major milestone of paying a dividend for the last 15 years straight. In addition, we continue to have a buyback program in place."
