CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®”) (NYSE MKT: CVU) today announced record results for the 2012 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012.

Second Quarter 2012 vs. 2011

  • Revenue increased 19.7% to $20,854,627 from $17,426,223;
  • Gross margin was 27.7% compared to 24.4%;
  • Pre-tax income increased 92.1% to $4,024,019 compared to $2,094,816; and,
  • Net income increased 71.6% to $2,696,019 or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to $1,570,816, or $0.22 per diluted share.

First Half 2012 vs. 2011

  • Revenue increased 21.4% to $40,575,722 from $33,435,831;
  • Gross margin was 26.5% compared to 24.2%;
  • Pre-tax income increased 64.0% to $6,734,338 compared to $4,106,865;
  • Net income increased 57.0% to $4,615,338 or $0.63 per diluted share compared to $2,938,865 or $0.41 per diluted share; and,
  • Unawarded solicitations remain at a high level with open solicitations totaling a maximum realizable value of approximately $980 million.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO, stated, “The 19.7% increase in second quarter revenue resulted in a more than 71% increase in net income, as several of our long-term programs including the NGC E-2D program, the Gulfstream G650 program and Boeing A-10 program, are in full scale production and we no longer incur excess costs related to engineering and design changes for these contracts.

“The 21.4% increase in 2012 first half revenue was due to a $7.6 million or 185% increase in revenue generated from commercial customers, with the Gulfstream G650 (up by $4 million) and Honda (up by $1.8 million) accounting for most of the increase. Revenue generated from prime government contracts increased by 14% to approximately $3.6 million, while revenue generated by government subcontracts decreased by 3.5% to approximately $25.3 million. Of note, for the 2012 first half, revenue generated from government subcontracts, commercial contracts and prime government contracts accounted for approximately 62%, 29% and 9% of total revenue, respectively.”

Mr. Fred continued, “Our gross margin for second quarter and first half of 2012 was in line with our expected annual range of 25%-27%. Our selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of revenue for the second quarter and first half decreased to 7.5% and 9.1%, respectively, as compared to 11.9% and 11.6%, respectively, in the same periods of last year, mainly due to changes we implemented in our policy of issuing stock options to our board of directors.”

Mr. Fred continued, “We have continued to receive large contract awards from existing and new customers. As of August 3, 2012, we have been awarded approximately $44.6 million in new contracts most of which are government subcontract awards. Included in this amount are a $12.7 million purchase order from Boeing for assemblies on the A-10 aircraft and a $10.7 million order from Goodrich Corporation for structural aerospace assemblies. In the same period last year, we received $58.6 million of new contract awards.”

He continued, “Additionally, we have approximately $980 million in formalized bids outstanding, and we continue to make bids on contracts on a weekly basis. As previously announced, unawarded solicitations include two bids totaling approximately $647 million to an international aerospace company for work on the Boeing 787.”

Mr. Fred went on to say, “Our record first half results were in line with expectations. We are projecting a much better second half, as well, and a particularly strong fourth quarter, as our newest contracts begin to generate revenue and income. We are reaffirming our 2012 guidance which calls for: revenue to be in the range of $95 million to $98 million; gross margin in the range of 25%-27%; and net income in the range of $12 million to $13 million.

“When we announced our 2012 first quarter results in May, we noted that our 2012 guidance has factored in the current defense budget environment and reflects the cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011. It remains unclear whether 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. As a result, we continue to believe it prudent to refrain from providing 2013 guidance until the federal budget situation becomes sufficiently defined. We expect to announce our 2013 guidance later on this year, aligning the timing with guidance announcements from our industry peers.”

Mr. Fred concluded, “Finally, to support our continued growth, in June and July 2012 we raised approximately $13.5 million through a public offering, which gave us greater financial flexibility. We used $4 million of the net proceeds to repay a portion our revolver and as of June 30, 2012, we have credit lines in place with a combined borrowing capacity of $22.5 million.”
