WELLAND, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 25, 2013) - CRS Electronics Inc. ("CRS" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LED), a developer and manufacturer of LED lighting, reports that it has released its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the related management's discussion and analysis of financial position and results of operations ("MD&A").
Fiscal 2012 was a very challenging year for CRS. The Company experienced various production issues which led to significant cost overruns for its retail sales campaign and resulted in lower than budgeted revenues and an overall $5.2 million net loss for the year.
For Fiscal 2013 the Company will be focusing on increasing revenues by launching a new commercial sales initiative of both lamps and lighting fixtures in North America and achieving Energy Star certification and DLC certification to support this commercial effort. The Company has commenced restructuring efforts to move production of our LED lamps and new lighting fixtures overseas and use the Canadian base as a distributor center for our LED products as well as a catalogue of synergistic products sourced through our new investors.
"We are very excited with our executive management team and our plans for 2013. We believe that, under the leadership of Mr. Jones, our new CEO, we will be able to gain new market shares and improve the results of the Company," said Mr. Chang Jiang Wu, Executive Chairman of CRS Electronics Inc.
Copies of the audited financial statements and related MD&A can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
