Sykesville, MD – August 13, 2015 – GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (NYSE MKT: GVP), a global energy industry performance improvement company, today announced financial results for the second quarter (“Q2”) ended June 30, 2015. Results for Q2 2015 include the results of Hyperspring, LLC (“Hyperspring”), which was acquired on November 14, 2014.
With the acquisition of Hyperspring, GSE has commenced reporting selected financial results for two business segments: Staff Augmentation, which provides personnel to fulfill staff positions on a short-term basis to energy industry customers; and Performance Improvement Solutions, which provides simulation, engineering and training solutions and services to the nuclear and fossil fuel power industry and to the chemical and petrochemical industries. Hyperspring’s results are included in the Staff Augmentation segment.
Kyle J. Loudermilk, Chief Executive Officer of GSE, said, “I am excited to be joining the Company at this critical juncture in its history, and see a compelling opportunity to create sustainable incremental value for stockholders. However, our recent financial performance has disappointed our stockholders, which we clearly need to address as that is unacceptable. In the near future, we will be completing a review of our global operations, identifying those areas in which we can generate efficiencies and areas where growth can be attained, to return us to profitability. Going forward, we will continue to leverage the Company’s core strengths—its talented workforce, unique technologies, diverse client base and strong balance sheet—in order to grow our Performance Improvement Solutions and Staff Augmentation segments. At the same time, we expect to explore growth opportunities in adjacent markets and, over time, transform our business model towards a greater mix of recurring revenues.”
