The operating losses however went down considerably to $173,000 in the first fiscal quarter of 2022 from an operating loss of as much as $607,000 in Q1 2021.
“We saw some improvement in supply chain shortages during the first quarter that allowed us to improve on our results compared to last year,” said Anthony Angelini, President and Chief Executive Officer of TSS. “Our facilities and reseller businesses saw improved profit in the first quarter. We anticipate the supply situation will continue to improve throughout the balance of 2022. Based on this improvement and our backlog of projects, we expect a significant improvement in our revenue and profitability throughout the year.”
