CPI Aerostructures Announces 2012 First Quarter Results

EDGEWOOD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®”) (NYSE Amex: CVU) today announced results for the 2012 first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

“The first quarter 23.2% increase in revenue was accompanied by an improvement in gross margin and lower S, G & A expenses as a percentage of revenue, resulting in a 40.3% increase in net income as compared to the first quarter of 2011.”

First Quarter 2012 vs. 2011

  • Revenue increased 23.2% to $19,721,095 from $16,009,608;
  • Gross margin was 25.2%, compared to 24.0%;
  • Selling, General and Administrative (S, G & A) expenses as a percentage of revenue were 10.7%, compared to 11.2%;
  • Pre-tax income increased 34.7% to $2,710,320, compared to $2,012,050; and,
  • Net income increased 40.3% to $1,919,320, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to $1,368,050, or $0.19 per share.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO, stated, “The first quarter 23.2% increase in revenue was accompanied by an improvement in gross margin and lower S, G & A expenses as a percentage of revenue, resulting in a 40.3% increase in net income as compared to the first quarter of 2011.”

Mr. Fred continued, “Contributing to the top line growth was a 190.5% increase in revenue generated from commercial contracts (accounting for approximately 28% of total revenue) and a 41.6% increase in revenue generated from prime government contracts (accounting for approximately 10% of total revenue). There was a slight decrease in revenue generated from government subcontracts (accounting for approximately 62% of total revenue). Work performed on our three major subcontract awards: NGC E-2D program, the Gulfstream G650 program and Boeing A-10 program accounted for 32%, 20% and 15% of 2012 first quarter revenue, respectively.”

Mr. Fred added, “Thus far this year, we continued to receive large contract awards from existing and new customers. As of May 4, 2012, we received a total of $32.2 million of new contract awards, which included approximately $31.4 million of government subcontract awards, approximately $0.6 million of commercial subcontract awards and approximately $0.2 million of government prime contract awards compared to a total of approximately $47 million of new contract awards, of all types, in the same period last year.”

Mr. Fred added, “It is important to note that nearly a third of the value of the year-to-date total awards were from two new customers: Goodrich Corporation and Embraer. We look forward to additional orders as we have approximately $952 million in unawarded solicitations on which we have bid. Unawarded solicitations include two bids totaling approximately $647 million to an international aerospace company for work on the Boeing 787. To be consistent with the way in which we have historically reported unawarded solicitations, we felt that these bids should be in the total; however we also believe that the large increase in bids outstanding needed to be explained.”

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. Our first quarter results were in line with our expectations. We are projecting the balance of 2012 to have a similar quarterly performance profile as 2011, with a strong second half and a particularly strong fourth quarter as our newest contracts begin to generate revenue and income. Our 2012 guidance has factored in the current defense budget environment and reflects the cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011. However, it is still unclear whether or not sequestration will take effect in January 2013 and what the impact of even deeper cuts in defense spending will have on CPI Aero’s existing and projected defense contracts. Therefore, we believe it is imprudent to provide financial projections for 2013 until the second half of 2012 when we anticipate the federal budget situation will be more sufficiently defined. We believe that timing of the guidance to the latter part of the year also more closely aligns ourselves with our industry peers.”

Mr. Fred concluded, “Finally, to support our expected growth in new orders, customers, programs and of course, revenue and profits over the coming years, we have amended and increased our credit lines to a combined borrowing capacity of $22.5 million. Additionally, we have increased our work force to 165 people, and we are conducting our operations at our new, three times larger, 171,000 sq. ft. facility where we relocated in mid-December 2011.”
