LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlas Technology International, Inc. (OTCQB:ATLT), a rapidly growing designer, manufacturer and distributor of touch screen devices, today announced record revenues and earnings for its fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017.

"Our financial results for our fourth quarter and full year were outstanding for a company still in its infancy as a public company," said Matthew Tsai, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Technology International, Inc.  "As much as we would like to celebrate we, perhaps more than anybody else, realize how cutthroat the competition has become in this industry.  As a result, we are seeing new and tougher challenges but at the same time the emergence of dozens of new and even larger and more lucrative opportunities than the industry has ever experienced.  It is due to these opportunities that we decided to move our corporate headquarters to the United States and better position ourselves for the next wave of growth and expansion from both the industry and Atlas Technology," continued Mr. Tsai.

"The touchscreen industry has grown to become the fastest-growing segment of the display market since Apple's launch of its iPhone in 2007.  After all, it is quite evident that touchscreen technology, in one form or another, can be found today across a number of high-demanding consumer goods such as mobile phones, handheld games, game consoles, and tablet PC applications, which collectively is expected to account for more than $30 billion in touchscreen revenues this year, up from just $7 billion in 2010.  In addition, we see strong touchscreen growth over the next several years from the continued demand for larger display applications such as all-in-one PCs, notebook PCs and consumer gaming products. 

"We are very fortunate to have the experience, relationships, proprietary technology and, perhaps, most important the vision twenty years ago while working in the R&D departments at our respective positions to start preparing for Atlas' debut in an industry that has grown faster than even our most aggressive expectations.  Although Fiscal 2017 generated significant financial gains across all of our business segments, it was more importantly a year of refining our business strategy and making key investments in technology, IP and people to ensure that Fiscal 2018 will turn into a "breakthrough year" for Atlas Technology.  This breakthrough, which can only be possible through the ongoing support of our clients, employees and shareholders, will represent a new era of growth, expansion and my highest priority -- the enhancement of shareholder value," concluded Mr. Tsai.

Atlas Technology Achieves Record Revenues and Earnings for Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2017
Atlas Technology reported $1,843,145 in revenues for its fourth quarter of Fiscal 2017 ended June 30, 2017, up 32% from $1,393,365 in revenues from its third fiscal quarter. Revenues once again outpaced the Company's previously announced guidance of $1.6-$1.8 million.  The increase in revenues was primarily driven from new contracts from the Company's growing portfolio of blue-chip multinational companies as well as continued growth with its existing clientele.  Gross margins expanded to a bit over 35% from 34% in the third fiscal quarter, due primarily to new revenue channels as well as overall economies of scale.

The Company reported net income of $275,784 for its fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017, exceeding its previously announced guidance of $180,000-$200,000 and nearly three times earnings from the prior quarter. 

At June 30, 2017, Atlas Technology International had over $2.5 million in cash and accounts receivables, up significantly from both the year-ago quarter and sequentially from the third quarter of fiscal 2017.  The Company continues to grow with virtually no long-term debt.  The Company's fourth fiscal quarter represented its second consecutive quarter of positive operating cash flow, a significant improvement from a loss in the year-ago quarter.

Company Expected to Modify its Capitalization Structure Either Through a Stock Buyback Program or the Cancellation of Majority of Founders' Shares
The Company today also reported that it expects to modify its capitalization structure by either implementing a stock buyback program or cancelling current outstanding shares owned by the Founders.  The goal will be to decrease the current shares outstanding by more than half to less than 30 million shares outstanding.  The Company believes a capitalization structure of this size is more in-line with its peer group and will almost immediately attract the interest of a broader audience from the investment community.

Company Provides Positive First Quarter 2018 Guidance
The Company anticipates revenues for its first quarter of Fiscal 2018 ending September 30, 2017 to be in the range of $1,900,000 to $2,200,000 and net income in the range of $350,000-$400,000.
