DORADO, PUERTO RICO / ACCESSWIRE / January 29, 2015 / Pharma-Bio Serv, Inc. (Pharma-Bio Serv or the Company) (PBSV), a compliance, project management and technology transfer support consulting firm, that provides services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, medical device, cosmetic, food and allied products industries, today announced total net revenues of $27.6 million for the year ended October 31, 2014, a decrease of approximately $5.5 million, or 16.7%, when compared to the same period last year. The revenue decrease is mainly attributable to a decline from consulting projects in the United States and Europe.
Net income for year ended October 31, 2014 was approximately $2.4 million, a decrease of $2.5 million when compared to the same period last year. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decline in revenue, the increase in selling general and administrative expenses, and operations investments incurred to diversify markets, services and customer base, and the impact of the effective income tax rates (including Puerto Rico favorable tax grants) over income before tax.
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended in October 31, 2014 were approximately $6.1 million, a net increase of approximately $0.3 million when compared to the same period last year. The Company continued investing in its business development and operations support for all its divisions in order to diversify their services, and expand their markets and customer base.
“While we are disappointed with our 2014 results, management is excited about a number of investments and initiatives we have put in place to continue growing operations in our key markets, while expanding our markets and customer base through diversified service offerings. We remain confident in delivering on our ambitious business plan with new initiatives, extensive business development and growth in existing and new markets,” said Victor Sanchez, CEO.
