WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Aug. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempus Applied Solutions Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: TMPS) reported its first quarterly operating profit as part of the Company's financial results for the second quarter of 2017 (01 April – 30 June). Tempus delivered in excess of $300,000, or $0.03 per share (average weighted number of shares), in operating profit versus $1.10 million loss and negative $0.12 per share from the same period in 2016.
Tempus CEO Scott Terry stated, "The Company is confirming its ability to achieve profitable operations due to the combination of quality revenue and rightsizing the organization to manage the existing revenue. We are looking forward to more opportunities during 2017 as evidenced by the recent agreement to acquire the L-1011 aerial refueling aircraft."
During the second quarter, the Company's share price rose from $0.10 per share in March 2017 to $0.49 by 30 June 2017, with significantly higher trading volumes, and is currently trading at just under $0.30 per share. As a consequence of the increased share price, the Company's warrant liability increased in Q2 2017, resulting in a non cash expense of approximately $700,000, which led to a net loss for the quarter of $(0.05) per share compared to $(0.07) per share for Q2 2016.
Mr. Terry added that the Company "will continue to explore opportunities to add shareholder value through organic growth and potential acquisitions as the Company's market value increases and operating profitability is demonstrated."
