PCS Edventures! Provides Operational Update
BOISE, Idaho, March 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PCS Edventures!, Inc., (PCSV) a leading provider of K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education programs and drone products, today announced the following updates on its operations.
On March 17, 2023, the Company received payment for the remainder of the first order of our Discover Drones program from the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC). As announced in our press release dated February 9, 2023, we retired all Company debt with the proceeds from this second payment. We will end Fiscal Year 2023 on March 31, 2023 as a debt-free company.
Our Discover Drones program continues to gain traction in the drone education space. As we disclosed in our press release dated January 11, 2023, the Company’s Discover Drones program was selected by the Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council for their Scale-Up Program. The Company expects to learn the size of this order in late April of 2023. The Executive Director of the Iowa STEM Advisory Council informed the Company that grant applications for the Company’s Discover Drones program were abundant, but not all applications are approved and accepted. The Company was highly encouraged from this feedback. The Company has the inventory on hand to fulfill the anticipated order from Iowa.
The Air Force JROTC has indicated that there is demand for a second order of the Company’s Discover Drones program from its sites, but that funding for a second order has not been finalized, so the order could not be guaranteed. While the Air Force was adamant that such an order could not be guaranteed to materialize, tey communicated a size and timing range to the Company about a second order assuming that funding was available. Given the information provided to the Company, management believes that it is prudent to prepare for a second order and is procuring inventory for that scenario.
Mike Bledsoe, President, commented, “The Company is on very solid financial footing heading into our 2024 Fiscal Year. We are debt-free, have an unused $300,000 line of credit with our primary bank, and should end Fiscal Year 2023 with over $400,000 in cash. We also have the wind at our backs operationally as we build upon the revenue momentum we generated in Fiscal Year 2023. On a preliminary basis, Fiscal Year 2023 revenue should be approximately 70% greater than Fiscal Year 2022 revenue, with a slightly better gross profit margin. Orders for the Company’s products continue to be robust, and our market is well-funded at this time. Our primary focus is on execution in this favorable environment.”
