$68 Million in New Contract Awards as of July 31st, 50% Higher than Same Period of 2012;
Expects a Solid Year for New Business

CPI Aerostructures, Inc. ("CPI Aero®") (NYSE MKT: CVU) today announced financial results for the 2013 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter 2013 vs. 2012

  • Revenue was $21,110,452 compared to $20,854,627;
  • Gross margin was 20.1% compared to 27.7%;
  • Pre-tax income was $2,584,276 compared to $4,024,019; and,
  • Net income was $1,784,276 or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $2,696,019 or $0.36 per diluted share.

First Half 2013 vs. 2012

  • Revenue was $41,037,885 compared to $40,575,722;
  • Gross margin was 21.1% compared to 26.5%;
  • Pre-tax income was to $5,005,551 compared to $6,734,338; and,
  • Net income was $3,455,551 or $0.41 per diluted share compared to $4,615,338 or $0.63 per diluted share.

* Diluted earnings per share for 2013 second quarter and six month periods were calculated on 16% and 18% more shares outstanding, respectively, than in the prior year periods due to the Company's 1.2 million share public offering completed in July 2012.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero's President & CEO, stated, "2013 second quarter and first half results were in line with our expectations. Our revenue for both reporting periods slightly increased, as compared to the same periods of 2012; however, as we previously reported, we expect our revenue for the full year to decline from 2012's full year revenue."

Mr. Fred continued, "For the 2013 first half, the slight increase in our total revenue was due to higher revenue from government and commercial subcontracts, offset by a decrease in revenue from prime government contracts. Specifically:

  • Revenue generated from government subcontracts increased by 9.2% to approximately $27.6 million, due to $5 million higher revenue from the A-10 program, $2 million higher revenue from our program with UTC Aerospace, offset by a $6 million decrease from the E-2D program.
  • Revenue generated from commercial subcontracts increased by 12% to approximately $13.1 million, primarily due to increased production rates on the G650 program.
  • As anticipated, revenue generated from prime government contracts substantially decreased to approximately $0.3 million, as we have transitioned away from being a government prime contractor."

Mr. Fred added, "Our 2013 first half gross margin was affected by adjustments to our long-term programs with Spirit, Northrop Grumman and Boeing, as well as our C-5 TOP program as follows:

  • The adjustment for the Spirit program is the result of price reductions given as part of the agreement to increase the program value and extend its life until 2019.
  • The Northrop Grumman adjustment is a reserve against anticipated price reductions that may be necessary upon completion of a government price analysis.
  • Boeing adjustment is due to negotiations for engineering changes.
  • The adjustment for the C-5 TOP program was the result of excess time and work required on wing tip panels.

"Due to these reductions and adjustments, we currently expect our gross margin for the 2013 full year to be within the range of 23% to 24%, lower than our projected range of 25% to 27%. We intend to compensate for this shortfall by continued reductions in selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) which should allow us to achieve the net income target we projected for 2013."

Mr. Fred noted, "Our 2013 second quarter and first half SG&A expenses as a percent of revenue decreased to 7.1% and 8.2%, respectively, as compared to 7.5% and 9.0% in the same periods of 2012, respectively. The decrease for both periods was mainly due to lower accrued officers' bonus, accounting, legal and other consulting fees, slightly offset by increased salaries due to higher headcount."

Mr. Fred added, "Lower gross margins, although slightly offset by lower SG&A expenses, resulted in a decrease in net income for the 2013 second quarter and first half, as compared to the same periods of 2012. Our 2013 first half operating cash flow, although negative, improved significantly in the second quarter as compared to the first quarter of 2013 and was in line with expectations. We had negative cash flow from operations of approximately $7.35 million in the first quarter of the year and negative cash flow from operations of only approximately $285,000 in the second quarter. We expect continued improvement in cash flow in the third and fourth quarters of the year which should result in positive cash flow from operations of approximately $3 million for 2013 full year, as we had projected at the end of 2012. Our cash flow is expected to improve due to the completion of our contract negotiations with Boeing."

Mr. Fred added, "Our total backlog at June 30, 2013 increased by $20.0 million to $411.9 million as compared to $391.9 million at December 31, 2012. This increase was attributable to a $35.7 million increase in backlog on commercial programs, offset by a $15.7 million decrease in backlog for military programs. Funded backlog increased to $74.8 million, at June 30, 2013 from $52.3 million at December 31, 2012, which was the result of a $26.0 million increase in funded backlog on commercial programs, offset by a $3.5 million decrease in funded backlog for military programs."

Discussing new contract awards, Mr. Fred noted, "Even with the federal budget sequester, we have recently seen acceleration in new order releases for military aircraft, as our customers have received more definite information regarding certain key defense programs. In that regard, in July, we received a $47 million long-term agreement from Sikorsky for the production of the BLACK HAWK fuel panels, a program for which CPI Aero has provided assembly labor since 2010. We expect this program to transition into full production during the third quarter of 2013. Including this new order, new contract awards as of July 31st, from all customers were approximately $68 million, as compared to approximately $45 million in new contract awards for the same period in 2012. We expect additional contracts to be released before 2013 year-end and to have a solid year for new business from both the military and commercial segments."

Mr. Fred added, "As previously announced, for 2013 we continue to expect:

  • Revenue and earnings to be lower than 2012 and more similar to those of 2011.
  • Commercial programs to generate a larger percentage of our overall revenue as compared to 2012.
  • Product shipments to be greater than in 2012, or any other year, as many of our programs have transitioned from development to production.
  • Increased shipments, combined with less spending for startup costs associated with new contracts and a decline in non-recurring expenses on our maturing programs, to result in positive cash flow from operations of approximately $3 million."

Mr. Fred concluded, "Over the last several years, we have taken steps to further diversify our business and we have focused our new business efforts on larger and more complex contract awards, especially for commercial programs, including contracts for large commercial aircraft parts. We expect several of these contracts to be awarded to us in the coming months and we believe that we are well positioned to resume our growth in 2014."
