Fourth Quarter Results
Transcend recorded stronger than expected diluted earnings per share of $0.26 for the fourth quarter of 2010, including $(0.01) per diluted share of acquisition transaction costs, due in large part to the contribution from the October 21, 2010 acquisition of Spryance Inc. d/b/a Heartland (Heartland).
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased 26% to $26,976,000 compared to $21,377,000 for the fourth quarter of 2009, including $3,722,000 of revenue contributed by Heartland. Excluding the Heartland business, which is now generating an annual revenue run rate of over $19 million, revenue increased 9%.
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased 43% to $10,445,000, or 39% of revenue, compared to $7,289,000, or 34% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of 2009.
Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased 85% to $5,062,000, or 19% of revenue, compared to $2,736,000, or 13% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of 2009 (2009 includes a $735,000 contingent consideration charge related to an acquisition).
