_______________________________

* "Adjusted operating income," "adjusted net income" and "adjusted diluted earnings per share" are non-GAAP financial measures. For additional details, please refer to the section of this press release entitled, "Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

The increase in revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, compared with the prior fiscal year was due primarily to the expansion of services provided under a contract with a major transportation company, expansion of services with Delta Air Lines at LaGuardia Airport and the net expansion of services to other new or existing security and aviation customers.

The increase in operating income was driven by the overall increase in revenues and a slight improvement in gross margins partly offset by $1,862,902 of additional labor (mainly employee severance) and other related expenses associated with our previously disclosed plan to consolidate and relocate our corporate headquarters to Herndon, Virginia. This relocation was completed on January 15, 2013.

Craig P. Coy, Chief Executive Officer of Command Security, said, "This has been a very successful fiscal year for the company. We have transitioned our corporate offices under one roof in Herndon, VA and have a new, energetic team working to grow, serve our customers and to meet our shareholders expectations. Our operating and net income for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 reflect strong improvement over the prior year despite the $1.9 million of expenses incurred in connection with the relocation and consolidation of our corporate offices. In the coming fiscal year we will continue focusing on our strategic initiatives to streamline our operations in part through the improved deployment of on-line management systems and to drive growth in key vertical sectors."

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we are providing certain non-GAAP measures for the three months and fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 for use in assessing our performance. These non-GAAP measures include: (i) adjusted operating income, and, (ii) adjusted net income, each of which have been adjusted to exclude the impact of certain non-recurring labor charges and expenses related to our corporate headquarters relocation, and (iii) adjusted diluted earnings per share, which we calculate as diluted earnings per share adjusted to exclude the estimated per share impact of the same specifically identified items used to calculate adjusted operating income and adjusted net income.

Our reported financial results for the three months and fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, include $814,084 and $1,862,902, respectively, of non-recurring charges, primarily from labor (mainly employee severance) and other related expenses associated with our consolidation and relocation of our corporate headquarters to Herndon, Virginia. We believe that presentation of operating results and related per share amounts exclusive of these costs provides useful supplemental information to facilitate the analysis of our core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The usefulness of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share as performance measures, however, is limited by the fact that they exclude the impact of certain charges and expenses. Therefore, these non-GAAP financial results should be considered as an addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Finally, other companies may define adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share differently and, as a result, our measures of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be directly comparable to adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share measures of other companies.
