  • Solicitations not yet awarded totaled a maximum realizable value of approximately $282 million at February 29, 2012.

* Note: The termination of the T-38 program one release year earlier than expected, resulted in a revenue adjustment based on a change in estimate for the fourth quarter of 2010 and the year as a whole. This non-cash adjustment was a GAAP change in estimate, and conformed to the procedures used for the percentage of completion method (“POC”) of accounting.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO, stated, “Our 2011 fourth quarter was the best quarter in CPI Aero’s history in terms of revenue and net income. For the year as a whole, the 68.5% increase in revenue was primarily the result of work performed on our three major subcontract awards won in 2008: the Gulfstream G650 program, Boeing A-10 program and NGC E-2D program which accounted for 11%, 30% and 26% of our 2011 revenue, respectively. In 2011 revenue generated from prime government contracts increased by 51% to approximately $6.7 million; revenue generated from government subcontracts increased by 79% to approximately $57 million primarily the result of the A-10 and E-2D programs; and, revenue generated from commercial contracts increased by 35% to approximately $10.2 million due to higher production rates on the G650 aircraft.”

Mr. Fred added, “Gross margin for 2011 returned to a more normal level, and was within our expected range of 24%-25%. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 10.7% of revenue from 2010’s 12.3% despite one-time expenses related to moving to our new facility, as well as higher overhead costs.”

Mr. Fred added, “As we reported, in 2011, we received $83.6 million of new contract awards including approximately $47.1 million of commercial contract awards, approximately $24.8 million of government subcontract awards and approximately $11.7 million of government prime contract awards. Approximately $24 million of the year-over-year gain in new contracts were attributable to additional government subcontract awards.”

Mr. Fred added, “We started 2012 on a strong note with year-to-date contract awards totaling $28.1 million, as compared to $22.3 million in the same period of last year. Importantly, last month we received a purchase order from a new customer, Goodrich Corporation and for the first time, CPI Aero will have the authority to design modifications to the structure it is manufacturing. We look forward to additional orders as we have approximately $282 million in unawarded solicitations on which we have bid.”

Mr. Fred went on to say, “We are reaffirming our 2012 guidance which calls for revenue to be in the range of $95 million to $98 million, primarily due to continued work on our three major long-term programs. With gross margin in the range of 25%-27%, we anticipate net income in the range of $12 million to $13 million. We intend to provide our 2013 guidance in our first quarter 2012 earnings release in May.”

Mr. Fred concluded, “Finally, to support our expected growth in new orders, customers, programs and of course, revenue and profits over the coming years, in November 2011 we increased our line of credit with Sovereign Bank to $18 million. In addition, in mid-December we completed the relocation to the 171,000 sq. ft. facility, which is nearly three times the size of our former location. Pictures of the new facility are available on our website www.cpiaero.com.”
