Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "In 2010, sales and profits were back on the growth track. While we are very proud that we have been profitable every year since 1993, including the severe 2009 recession, our focus continues to be sales and earnings growth. While some of our growth in 2010 can be attributed to the economic recovery, the primary increase has come from new customers and introducing new programs to existing customers."
Kubacki continued: "Beyond the strong financial performance of 2010, the Company has invested in its future with the addition of two new officers in the Company (Corporate VP – Sales & Marketing and VP – Controller) as well as an enhanced sales team. Despite the tough environment, we continued to bring on new clients, including expanding internationally, with sales/marketing agreements made for the UK and Europe, which will set the foundation for future revenue growth. We have also improved our internet presence with a complete overhaul of our website and continue to expand our e-commerce platform."
Kubacki concluded, "The Company's balance sheet remains strong with approximately $5.7 million in cash and short-term investments and no long-term debt. Our directors share our confidence in the future of Psychemedics and remain committed to rewarding shareholders and sharing the financial success of the Company with them as we grow. Therefore, we are pleased to declare our fifty-eighth consecutive quarterly dividend."
