Preliminary 2014 Financial Results:

The Company expects to report fourth quarter revenue of approximately $8.4 million and fiscal 2014 revenues of approximately $28 million, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of approximately $0.4 million for the fourth quarter and a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.2 million for 2014. The Company expects to report net income between $0 - 0.1 million for the fourth quarter and a net loss for 2014 of approximately $2.5 million.

"We were pleased to deliver higher revenues and to achieve profitable results during the fourth quarter," said Anthony Angelini, President and Chief Executive Officer of TSS. "We have been focused on operating our business profitability without compromising the service and value that we deliver to our customers. Our gross profit margin doubled compared to the previous year driving a substantial improvement in our results."

Filing of Form 12b-25

The Company also announced today that it has filed a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission providing the Company a 15 day extension to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The Company must extend its filing date to provide additional time to complete the audit of its financial statements, which could not be accomplished by the original filing date without incurring unreasonable effort and expense because the Company needs additional time to respond to information requests from its independent registered public accounting firm. The Company expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K within the fifteen day extension period provided by Rule 12b-25.

Important factors that could cause actual results, developments and business decisions to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements include, among other things: the Company's 2014 results are unaudited results based on current expectations and are subject to quarter-end closing adjustments and the completion of the Company's annual audit;  the Company's reliance on a significant portion of its revenue from a limited number of customers; risks relating to operating in a highly competitive industry; risks relating to rapid technological, structural, and competitive changes affecting the industries the Company serves; risks involved in properly managing complex projects; risks relating the possible cancellation of customer contracts on short notice; risks relating our ability to continue to implement our strategy, including having sufficient financial resources to carry out that strategy; risks relating to our ability to meet all of the terms and conditions of our debt obligations; uncertainty related to current economic conditions and the related impact on demand for our services; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. These uncertainties may cause the Company's actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made in the Company's SEC reports, which are designed to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect its business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.
