Castellum, Inc. Announces $6 million Cost Reduction Plan
BETHESDA, Md., May 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Castellum, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE-American: CTM), a cybersecurity and electronic warfare services company focused on the federal government, announces that it is undertaking a cost reduction effort targeting at least $6 million per year in cash and non-cash indirect costs, general and administrative costs, and overhead costs. The Company expects to make the changes over the next 60 days to improve the profitability of the company.
“We are taking a very close look at how to improve the profitability of our company,” said Mark Fuller, President and CEO of Castellum. “While we have done good things growing our revenue to a $50 million run-rate, we need to run leaner so that our bottom line also improves. Taking $6 million in costs out of the business in everything from salary reductions, personnel reductions and changes in how we handle stock-based compensation is an important first step in right-sizing our business. We will continue to pursue accretive acquisitions and invest in organic growth but with a clear eye toward better operating margins and better net margins for our business.”
