For the Year Ended December 31, 2005
ATLANTA Thursday, March 30, 2006 Tri-S Security Corp. (NASDAQ: TRIS), a provider of security services and equipment for government and private entities, today announced its expected results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2005.
All comparative financial results presented for the year ended December 31, 2004 include the stub period from January 1, 2004 through February 27, 2004 for Tri-S Securitys predecessor company, Paragon Systems, Inc. (Paragon), which Tri-S Security acquired on Feb. 27, 2004.
Revenue for 2005 increased $11,855,000 to $41,985,000, or 39.3%, compared to revenue of $30,130,000 for 2004.
