CPI Aerostructures Announces 2010 Year-End Results

EDGEWOOD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®”) (NYSE Amex: CVU) today announced audited results for the 2010 fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010.

“The adjustments that we made for the T-38 program and two other contracts subject to early termination/completion that are accounted for in a similar manner, eliminate the possibility of similar revenue adjustments on these ongoing contracts in future years.”

Fourth Quarter 2010 vs. 2009

  • Revenue was $7,464,546 from $12,729,858;
  • Gross margin was (45%), compared to 30% in last year’s fourth quarter;
  • Pre-tax loss was $4,758,535, compared to pre-tax income of $2,240,661; and,
  • Net loss was $2,965,535, or $0.44 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1,559,661, or $0.25 per diluted share.

Full Year 2010 vs. 2009

  • Revenue was $43,990,784 from $43,906,825;
  • Gross margin was 14% as compared to 26%;
  • Pre-tax income was $542,896 as compared to $5,861,007;
  • Net income was $529,896 or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to $3,946,007 or $0.64 per diluted share;
  • New orders were a record $61.7 million, compared to $23.4 million; and,
  • Solicitations not yet awarded totaled a maximum realizable value of approximately $486 million.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s CEO & President, stated, “As previously announced, 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 and the year. This non-cash adjustment is a GAAP change in estimate, and conforms to the procedures used for the percentage of completion method (“POC”) of accounting.

“The adjustments that we made for the T-38 program and two other contracts subject to early termination/completion that are accounted for in a similar manner, eliminate the possibility of similar revenue adjustments on these ongoing contracts in future years.

“Without the impact of the above adjustment, we would have slightly exceeded our 2010 guidance of revenue in the range of $49 million to $51 million and net income in the range of $4.6 million to $4.8 million.”

The change in estimate adjustment, and the related impact, is described more fully in our press release of January 20, 2011.

He added, “2010 was a record year in terms of new contract awards which approximated $61.7 million of which approximately $8.5 million were government prime contract awards, $48.6 million were government subcontract awards and $4.6 million were commercial subcontract awards.

“We started 2011 on a very strong note. Since the beginning of the year we have received several contracts including: a $17.7 million contract from Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. for structural assemblies and kits for the S-92® civil helicopter program; and a $4 million purchase order to manufacture seats for the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft from Northrop Grumman Corporation. We look forward to additional new orders from existing contracts as well as from the $486 million of solicitations that we have bid on but remain unawarded as of December 31, 2010.”

Mr. Fred noted, “One of the major achievements of 2010 was being named by Sikorsky to its Supplier Gold status which was followed earlier this year with the $17.7 million S-92® civil helicopter order, the largest contract we have ever received from Sikorsky. The work we have performed for major prime contractors has enhanced our reputation and stature which we are using to establish relationships with additional prime manufacturers, including other helicopter and business/private jet companies, who have come to recognize CPI Aero as a premier supplier of aircraft structure.”

Affirms Long-Term Guidance

Mr. Fred concluded, “Our 3-year, compounded annual growth rate guidance for revenue in the range of 30% to 35%, and for net income in the range of 50% to 60% - provided by CPI Aero in 2008, remains intact. We remain confident that we will achieve our 2011 guidance which calls for revenue to be in the range of $78 million to $81 million, a 77% to 84% increase over 2010, primarily due to increased work on our three major long-term programs: A-10, E-2D and G650. Net income for 2011 is expected to be in the range of $9.2 million to $9.5 million. Our gross margin for the year should be in the range of 25% to 27%. In addition, we estimate that for 2012, revenue should be in the range of $88 million to $91 million, with resulting net income of between $11 million and $12 million.”
