PDSi Revises Fourth Quarter Projections

11/23/2004 - Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. (PDSi) (AMEX: PNS) announced that earlier projections of sales near last year’s fourth quarter record of $7.7 million and continued profitability for the quarter are being revised downward. A large customer’s new product line introduction is going well, however, it is running behind the earlier forecasted demand. Therefore, significant orders for computer controllers for that new product line have been moved into 2005.

“We expect large order movement between quarters to happen occasionally, which is why we look at our business on an annual basis.” Michael R. Sayre, Executive Vice President and CFO of PDSi, said. “We are continuing our plans to grow the Company and we’ve previously discussed how increased levels of spending for future growth combined with this type of order movement could result in less profitable, or even loss, quarters. Due to the movement of these orders, we now expect to report fourth quarter sales about 10% less than the fourth quarter of 2003 and a loss for the quarter. However, we still expect to report significant increases in both sales and earnings for the 2004 year.”
