Stamford, CT, February 3, 2021 — PASSUR® Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR), a global leader in digital operational excellence, announced revenues of $11,529,000 for fiscal year 2020, compared with $15,046,000, for fiscal year 2019, a decrease of $3,517,000 or 23%.
The Company had a net loss of $12,304,000, or $1.60 per diluted share, for the year ended October 31, 2020 after an impairment charge of $9,874,000 taken during the second quarter, ended April 30, 2020, or $2,430,000 before the impairment charge, as compared to a net loss for fiscal year 2019 of $3,837,000, or $0.50 per diluted share.
Given the impact of the current COVID-19 environment on customers, during fiscal year 2020 the Company wrote off $6,134,000 in capitalized software, which was included in the $9,874,000 impairment charge above. In addition, due to the FAA mandated use of ADS-B feeds system-wide as of January 2020 and the commercial availability of ADS-B feeds, PASSUR also wrote off its entire investment of $3,565,000 in the PASSUR network and $175,000 of related lease assets, which had previously incorporated and integrated ADS-B feeds, where available, with data generated by the PASSUR network and had become redundant. Such write-off was also included in the impairment charge above.
Brian Cook, PASSUR’s President and CEO, stated “We are proud to announce that the Company’s income from operations for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, ended July 31, 2020, was positive for the first time in six quarters, on revenue of $2.2 million. For the quarter ended October 31, 2020, the Company also had a positive operating income on revenue of $1.9 million. In addition, for the quarter ended October 31, 2020, the Company had a positive net income. All of the previous eight fiscal quarters had net losses.”
Cook became PASSUR’s CEO in February 2020 and President in June 2020. He has been a PASSUR Director since November 2018, and had previously served as Vice President and General Manager Travel and Transportation at DXC Technologies and at Hewlett Packard, which was merged into DXC.
In July 2020 PASSUR received a grant of $3.0 million from the CARES Act Payroll Support Program for Air Carriers and Contractors, paid in installments in July, August, and September 2020, which is being used for the continuation of payment of employee wages, salaries, and benefits for certain eligible employees.
