ATLANTA – Friday, May 15, 2009

– Tri-S Security Corp. (NASDAQ: TRIS), a provider of security services for government entities, today announced its results of operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009. Tri-S provides security services through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Paragon Systems, Inc. (“Paragon”).

Revenues increased 80% to $29.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

 

   

Gross profit increased 28% to $0.9 million from a year ago.

 

   

Gross margins were 3.1% compared to 4.3% a year ago. The difference between 2009 and 2008 is primarily attributable to an existing contract awarded to Paragon with a lower margin.

Recent Highlights

 

   

In March 2009, Tri-S Security determined to sell substantially all of the assets (except accounts receivable) of its wholly-owned subsidiary, The Cornwall Group, Inc. (“Cornwall”), and certain of its subsidiaries. Cornwall is based in Miami, Florida and provides physical security for clients in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach, Florida. Tri-S Security determined to sell the Cornwall business so that Tri-S could focus on growing the government business and reduce its overall debt load. The sale was completed on May 13, 2009. This transaction will reduce our overall debt load by approximately $7.0 million, $750,000 of which will be held in escrow to secure the continuation of certain contracts transferred as part of the sale.
