Psychemedics Corporation Announces Year End Results Record Annual and Quarterly Revenue

Declares Quarterly Dividend

ACTON, Mass., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Psychemedics Corporation (Amex: PMD) today announced fourth quarter and year-end financial results for the period ended December 31, 2007, which included record revenues for both the quarterly and full-year periods. The Company also announced a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share payable to shareholders of record as of March 7, 2008 to be paid on March 21, 2008. This will be the Company's 46th consecutive quarterly dividend.

The Company's revenue for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $24,568,824, up 5% as compared to $23,425,090 for all of 2006. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $4,483,687 or $0.85 per share, a decrease of 9% over the comparable period last year during which the Company earned $4,902,201 or $0.94 per share. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $5,891,412, an increase of 2% as compared to $5,797,012 in the fourth quarter of 2006. Net income was $906,817 or $0.17 per share, down 23% from $1,175,963 or $0.22 per share for the same period of 2006.

Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to report that Psychemedics has once again set new records for revenue for both the fourth quarter and full year, despite a very challenging hiring environment. Our revenue increase, however, was below historical trends caused by a decline in our base business (accounts over one year), largely influenced by a major auto-related client who was off 84% from its spike in hiring in 2006. Our new business continues to remain healthy."

Kubacki continued, "While our earnings did not match last year's record results due to increased general and administrative expenses and extra R&D expenses, we continue to show very strong operating margins. Our gross margin remained at 60% for 2007 and 2006, while our pre-tax margin continued to be above 30%, despite higher than anticipated legal and accounting expenses and increased R&D. Our 2007 net income was also unfavorably impacted by a three percentage point increase in our effective tax rate, resulting in lower net income and earnings per share. It is important to note that the fourth quarter is seasonably low and, therefore fluctuations in revenue, expenses and/or tax rates have a disproportionate impact on the results.

"We continue to see significant opportunities for further growth. To capitalize on these prospects, we have already in 2008 added a Director of Marketing who will establish and manage our lead generation initiative, thereby increasing our sales team's productivity. In 2007, we added two regional sales professionals and anticipate further additions in 2008."

Kubacki concluded, "The Company's balance sheet remains strong with approximately $10.0 million of cash and short-term investments, no long-term debt and over $12.8 million of working capital. Our directors share our confidence in the future of Psychemedics and remain committed to rewarding shareholders and sharing the financial success of the Company with them as we grow. Therefore we are pleased to declare our 46th consecutive quarterly dividend."
