EDGEWOOD, N.Y., April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVU) today announced financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2021.

“Our reported results for the first half of 2021 came in at the high end of the estimated ranges that were previously published” said Dorith Hakim, president and CEO. “The combination of a 45% increase in revenue and the nearly tripling of gross margin to 16.0% resulted in a $6.6 million increase in bottom line profitability versus the first half of 2020. Revenue growth was driven by continued execution of our funded military backlog, with revenue from contracts with our military OEM customers increasing 75% and revenue from commercial aviation contracts declining 47%.”

“For the second quarter, cash flow from operations was $2.4 million, an expected reversal from the $4.9 million use of funds for the first quarter as product deliveries began to reduce contract assets and inventory. As a result, we continue to expect to report positive cash flow from operations for the second half of 2021 and for the full year of 2021. We also continued to pay down our debt and, as of June 30, 2021, had an outstanding balance on our term loan of $6.2 million.”

Added Ms. Hakim, “Funded backlog as of June 30, 2021 of approximately $157 million was, as expected, 23% lower than the funded backlog as of June 30, 2020, reflecting the receipt of more than $60 million in new firm orders during the first quarter of 2020. Since June 30, 2021, we have won, but 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 more than $500 million in total backlog as of the end of 2021.”

“In addition to reaffirming our expectation for generating positive cash flow from operations for 2021, we continue to expect to report higher revenue and improved profitability. Based on an updated review of our program portfolio, we expect to report 2021 revenue of greater than $100 million compared to $87.6 million for 2020, and net income between $7.5m to $8.0 million, including the $4.8 million of other income related to the forgiveness of our Paycheck Protection Program loan, compared to a net loss of $(3.7) million for 2020.”

Concluded Ms. Hakim, “In the several weeks since my appointment as CEO of CPI Aero, I have been immediately impressed by the dedication of the Company’s employees to sustaining our reputation for high quality performance and reliability in partnership with our customers on increasingly complex programs. I am excited about the opportunities ahead to build on that reputation and grow the Company as our customers continue to outsource high value work to their supply chains, including CPI Aero.”
