CPI Aerostructures Announces 2016 Second Quarter Financial Results

Reports Revenue of $22.3 Million; EPS of $0.21

EDGEWOOD, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2016) - CPI Aerostructures, Inc. ("CPI Aero®") (NYSE MKT: CVU) today announced financial results for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016.

Summary Highlights

  • For the 2016 Second Quarter, Revenue, Pre-Tax Income and EPS Increased 2%, 86% and 75%, respectively;

  • For the 2016 Second Quarter, Revenue, Pre-Tax Income and EPS on an As Adjusted Basis Increased 22%, 86% and 75%, respectively;

  • Backlog of $395 Million as of June 30, 2016, up $8 Million From 2015 Year-End;

  • Defense backlog up 5% at June 30, 2016 from 2015 year-end; multi-year defense contracts now represent 74% of total backlog;

  • Entering second-half 2016 with a new, strategic award from Raytheon with a revenue potential of $31 million over the next decade.

Revenue for the 2016 second quarter was $22.3 million compared with $21.9 million for the 2015 second quarter. Gross profit was $5.0 million for the second quarter of 2016, versus $3.8 million for the second quarter of 2015. Pre-tax income for the 2016 second quarter was $2.8 million compared with $1.5 million in the 2015 second quarter. Net profit for the 2016 second quarter was $1.8 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared with $1.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the 2015 second quarter.

Second quarter 2016 results include $2.5 million in zero-margin revenue related to the A-10 Wing Replacement Program (WRP). In reporting first quarter 2016 results, CPI Aero announced that it had incurred a non-cash charge of approximately $13.5 million related to its estimate to perform through the conclusion of the order. Accordingly the company is recording A-10 WRP revenue for the remainder of the program at zero gross profit. The results summarized below are presented on an adjusted basis that excludes the impact of the A-10 WRP from the applicable periods.

Second Quarter 2016 vs. Second Quarter 2015 (As Adjusted)

  • Revenue was $19.8 million compared to $16.3 million, an increase of 22%; 
  • Gross profit was $5.0 million compared to $3.8 million, an increase of 31%;
  • Pre-tax income was $2.9 million compared to $1.5 million, an increase of 86%;
  • Net income was $1.8 million compared to $1.0 million, an increase of 83%; and,
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.21 compared to $0.12, an increase of 75%.

Six Months 2016 vs. Six Months 2015 (As Adjusted)

  • Revenue was $39.3 million to $32.0 million, an increase of 23%; 
  • Gross profit was $8.7 million compared to $7.5 million, an increase of 16%;
  • Pre-tax income was $3.5 million compared to $2.9 million, an increase of 20%;
  • Net income was $2.2 million compared to $1.9 million, an increase of 14%; and,
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.26 compared to $0.22 per diluted share, an increase of 18%.

Douglas McCrosson, president and chief executive officer, said, "Our second quarter performance reflects our continued focus on operational excellence as we rationalize costs and increase productivity to enhance profitability. Our results for the quarter and the first six months also validate a business strategy first set into motion in 2014 that places greater sales emphasis on the defense market. Top and bottom line growth in the quarter were driven by multi-year defense programs won over the past 18 months, particularly our programs with Northrop Grumman on the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye for the U.S. Navy and for Japan and the T-38 Pacer Classic III prime contract with the U.S. Air Force. I am especially pleased about the prospects for incremental top line growth coming from these newer programs as we sunset the A-10 WRP program. With a backlog of $395 million at quarter-end, 75% of which represents multi-year defense programs, we believe that our business strategy will lead to revenue growth and margin expansion that is sustainable over the next several years."

Continued Mr. McCrosson, "Not reflected in our $395 million backlog as of June 30, 2016 is a new, strategically important program we announced after the close of the quarter for the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) pod structure with Raytheon. This is a significant win for CPI Aero as it opens up a new avenue for growth in a market that will be important to our future. In Raytheon, we have gained a new customer that is a global leader in Electronic Warfare to boost our aerosystems segment and is complementary to our Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance pod-based systems we produce currently for Northrop Grumman and United Technologies Aerospace Systems. This program could represent $31 million of revenue over the next decade. Our bid pipeline is robust and aligned with our strategy, with almost 70% of the value targeted at defense markets and almost 45% aimed at capturing new work for our aerosystems segment. We advanced many of these new business pursuits at the recent Farnborough International Air Show and expect many of these and other opportunities will be decided during 2016."

Financial Outlook
Mr. McCrosson added, "Based on our results of the first half of the year and outlook for the second half of the year, we are affirming our financial guidance for 2016. Excluding the A-10 Wing Replacement Program from our projected results for 2016, we still expect adjusted revenue for 2016 to be in the range of $82.5 million to $88.5 million. Adjusted pre-tax income for fiscal 2016 is expected to be in the range of $9.8 million to $10.5 million."

Mr. McCrosson concluded, "Our business is stronger today than it was at the start of 2016. We are moving beyond the A-10 program that for so long has dominated the conversations on CPI Aero and that has diverted attention from the positive improvements we have made to our business over the course of the past several years. We have a growing backlog, the bulk of which is related to newer defense programs announced during the past 18 months. We are operating efficiently with overhead and G&A rates that are historically low and projected to get lower, and are improving gross profit margins on newer programs as these begin to transition from development rates to production rates. We are being requested to provide proposals on aircraft and systems that will be mainstays of future aviation in both commercial and military end markets and are laser-focused on turning many of these proposals into firm orders during the remainder of 2016. While there is still plenty of work to do for the second half of 2016, we are looking ahead, confident in our belief that this year's business momentum will carry over into 2017 and that we will see higher revenue, greater income and better cash flow over 2016."

ADJUSTED STATEMENT OF EARNINGS
30-JUN-16
 

Adjusted Earnings (arrived at by eliminating the Company's A-10 Program with Boeing from reported results) is not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Adjusted earnings is a key metric CPI Aero has used in evaluating its financial performance. Adjusted earnings is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by Regulation G promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. CPI Aero considers Adjusted Earnings important in evaluating its financial performance on a consistent basis across various periods. Due to the significance of the non-cash and non-recurring change in estimate recognized in the three months ended March 31, 2016, Adjusted Earnings enables the Company's Board of Directors and management to monitor and evaluate the business on a consistent basis. CPI Aero uses Adjusted Earnings as a measure, among others, to analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating decisions and investments. The presentation of Adjusted Earnings should not be construed as an inference that CPI Aero's future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items or by non-cash items, such as changes in estimates. Adjusted Earnings should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, pre-tax income, net income and cash flows from operating activities.
