Datapulse Technology has reported a higher profit of $1.5 million for the 1Q15. The company recorded a 10.3 percent fall in revenue from $10.6 million to $9.5 million this quarter, mainly due to a reduction of revenue from its DVD media storage products and services, but was partially offset by an increase in sales of Blu Ray products and services. A 16.5 percent fall in total operating expenses to $8 million helped the company to achieve the 57 percent jump in net profit, despite lower business activities and sales.
