EDGEWOOD, NY, May 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVU) today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

“Our reported results for the first nine months of 2021 allow us to meet our stated expectations for increased revenue, significant improvement in profitability and positive operating cash flow for 2021,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO. “Continued execution of our order backlog resulted in a 23.9% increase in revenue and a 5.9 basis point increase in gross margin to 15.8%, resulting in an increase in $11.2 million in net profitability, including the cancellation of our $4.8 million PPP loan, compared to the first nine months of 2020.

“For the third quarter of 2021, we generated operating cash flow of $1.2 million, an expected reversal of the use of funds of (2.4) million dollars for the second quarter of 2021, because product deliveries continue to reduce contract assets and inventory.As a result, we continue to expect positive operating cash flow for the second half of 2021 and for full year 2021. We also continued to repay our debt and, as of September 30, 2021, we had an outstanding balance on our term loan of $5.6 million.

Ms. Hakim added, “The funded backlog as of September 30, 2021 of approximately $138 million was 98% attributable to government contracts and comprised primarily of long-term programs and long-term agreements. This funded backlog is, as expected, 27% lower than the funded backlog as of September 30, 2020, reflecting the receipt of over $60 million in new firm orders during the first quarter of 2020. Since September 30, 2020 2021, however, has won, but has not yet been able to announce, several new contracts for military applications in key strategic sectors including electronic warfare, hypersonic and unmanned systems. We remain on track to report a total backlog of over $500 million by the end of 2021.

“We continue to expect to report 2021 revenue in excess of $100 million versus $87.6 million for 2020, and net income between $7.5 and $8.0 million, including the $4.8 million dollars of other income related to the forgiveness of our Paycheck Protection Program loan, relative to net income. loss of (3.7) million dollars for 2020.”

Ms. Hakim concluded, “We remain confident in CPI Aero’s long-term prospects and look forward to future opportunities as we build on our reputation for high quality and reliable performance.
