Document Security Systems (NYSEAMERICAN:DSS) news for Monday includes the tech company’s earnings report for the third quarter of 2020 boosting DDS stock up. That’s thanks to the company’s diluted earnings per share of 70 cents beating out Wall Street’s losses per share estimate of 12 cents. Its revenue of $4.17 million also beats analysts’ estimates of $3.02 million.

  • That’s a massive boost from the company’s net loss of $1.25 million in the same period of the year prior.

Frank Heuszel, CEO of Document Security Systems, said the following about the news.

“This was a truly transformational quarter for DSS with a $1.20 per share in net income from continuing operations and shareholder equity increasing nearly five-fold to $73.3 million. We also demonstrated our vision of sharing the economic benefits of our success with our shareholders in the third quarter, after completing the acquisition of Impact BioMedical, by declaring a special share dividend.”
