Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

EXTON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NAS: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2012 ended September 30, 2012.

Three Month Results

For the fourth quarter, the Company reported revenue of $6.9 million, up 7% from revenue of $6.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company reported fourth quarter 2012 net income of $2.8 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to $12,000, or $0.00 per share in the same quarter a year ago. For the fourth quarter, the Company generated positive operating cash flow of $1.3 million, up from $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Of the reported net income and earnings per share, $2.4 million and $0.15, respectively, resulted from the reversal of income tax valuation allowances related to book to tax temporary differences and to research and development credits. The Company established the valuation allowances in 2008, following several years of losses, at which time the realization of certain deferred tax assets was considered unlikely in accordance with the requirements of ASC Topic 740 "Income Taxes". Over the past several years, the Company has been profitable, and, in accordance with the requirements of ASC Topic 740, has concluded that, based upon an analysis of past results and future projections, the valuation allowances for certain deferred tax assets should be reversed.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. ("ISSC"), said, "Revenues for the last three months of the year increased for the third consecutive quarter, which, together with continued operating efficiency, enabled us to achieve full year profitability for the fourth consecutive year. The results were accomplished while we were investing in new product development programs to leverage our core technology, expand our market opportunities, and increase our growth potential. Consequently, we not only ended fiscal 2012 in a strong financial position, but we entered fiscal 2013 with a more robust product portfolio and a larger addressable market. While economic uncertainty will present challenges to the health of our end markets in the near term, we are confident that the investments which we are making to strengthen the Innovative Solutions & Support franchise will create value for our shareholders over the longer term."

At September 30, 2012, the Company had $43.0 million of cash on hand and no debt. During the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year the Company used cash of approximately $107,000 to repurchase 31,221 shares of Company stock at an average cost of $3.44 per share.

Backlog was approximately $19.7 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $23.0 million at June 30, 2012, and $27.5 million at September 30, 2011. For the year, new orders of $28.2 million exceeded sales of $24.6 million. Backlog at September 30, 2012 was net of $11.4 million of order reductions primarily by American Airlines. We expect backlog to improve in the future because of potential future sole source production sales resulting from the present customer-funded Engineering Modification and Development ("EMD") contracts.

Full Year Fiscal 2012 Results

Revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 were $24.6 million compared to $25.7 million for the twelve months ended September 30, 2011. Net income was $3.0 million, or $0.18 per share, for fiscal 2012 compared to $0.7 million, or $0.04 per share for the twelve months ended September 30, 2011. Of the reported net income and earnings per share, $2.4 million and $0.15, respectively, resulted from the reversal of the income tax valuation allowances that were discussed above. Cash flow from operating activities was $1.4 million for the twelve months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $2.3 million for the prior year. During fiscal 2012, the Company used $798,000 of cash to repurchase 211,722 shares of its stock at an average cost of $3.77 per share.

Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, "The profitability and positive cash flow generated in fiscal 2012 has provided us with additional resources to continue our development efforts and to leverage our expanding portfolio of products to gain share in our commercial air transport, military and general aviation markets. Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. has already placed an initial production order for one of our new products, our advanced avionics suite for their Eclipse 550 jet. In addition, we announced two new products that we are confident will be well received, our NextGen Cockpit/IP® II flight deck for business and general aviation aircraft, and our Integrated Multifunction Standby Unit for a variety of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. Together with the progress that we are making in the development of our new System Integration and Cockpit Avionics, we continue to build our reputation for improving aircraft performance with dependable, high-quality products that offer owners an exceptional value proposition."

At the end of the quarter, the Company had $760,000 due from American Airlines. Based upon the present status of the bankruptcy proceedings, we are not able to determine the amount, if any, that could be uncollectible.

Business Outlook

For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013, we expect to increase sales and generate profit, which would represent our fifth consecutive profitable year. Our ability to provide specific targets and ranges remains difficult as a result of the uncertain current economic climate; however, we are cautiously optimistic about results for 2013. We anticipate that sales will increase over 2012 sales; however, income before income taxes will not grow as fast as sales because of the continued high investment in lower margin EMD programs and in IR&D. We will provide additional commentary during our earnings conference call.

Conference Call

The Company will be hosting a conference call December 6, 2012 at 10:00 AM ET to discuss these results and its business outlook.
