Intelligent Systems Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Systems Corporation [NYSE American: INS;] announced today its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“We re-affirm our previously reported preliminary second quarter 2019 revenues of about $7.5 million (actual $7,512,000) and preliminary income from operations of $2.5 to $2.7 million (actual $2,601,000) representing significant growth from the same period last year. Comparisons between year-over-year quarters and the first half of the year show significant gains that are not likely to be replicated at the same percentage increases going forward.”
