CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (NYSE American: CVU) today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021.

Commenting on the first quarter 2021 results, Douglas McCrosson, President and CEO, said: “As several new defense programs have entered the manufacturing phase and other early stage programs have increased production , we generated 83% higher revenue while achieving a 1,500 basis point improvement. gross margin compared to a year ago. The efficient execution of our funded military backlog continued to drive revenue growth, as revenue from military contracts more than doubled to $ 28.9 million, while revenue from commercial aviation contracts was almost halved to $ 1.9 million. The combination of improved gross margin and lower interest expense, slightly offset by increased SGA expenses, resulted in a $ 4.6 million decrease in profitability of net income.

Mr. McCrosson added, “However, the rate of sales growth did not unexpectedly increase our working capital requirements during the quarter and net contract assets and accounts receivable increased significantly over the course of the quarter. of the three-month period, resulting in a use of funds in operating activities of $ 4.9. million for the quarter. We expect to report positive operating cash flow through the remainder of 2021 as contractual assets burned along with product deliveries, and we maintain our previously stated belief that operating cash flow for 2021 will be greater than those of 2020. “

“The funded backlog as of March 31, 2021 was $ 162.7 million, including 160.5 or 99% for defense markets, compared to $ 169.6 million as of December 31, 2020, including $ 166.2 million dollars, or 98%, for defense contracts. This 4% decrease was expected given the fact that we received over $ 60 million in new firm orders, including $ 52.1 million in orders from Northrop Grumman for the E-2D program to support several years of deliveries. , during the first quarter of 2020. The total backlog as at March 31, 2021 was $ 451.0 million, including multi-year defense contracts of $ 433.5 million, compared to the total backlog as at March 31, 2021. December 2020 of $ 476.2 million, including multi-year defense contracts of $ 456.8 million, ”continued Mr. McCrosson. “We believe the defense market remains strong and we have a strong portfolio of opportunities for military applications in key strategic industries including electronic warfare, hypersonics and unmanned systems. We have been informed by clients that we have been successful in winning several new contracts which we plan to announce if and when our clients allow it. This gives me confidence to believe that we are on track to end 2021 with a total order book of around $ 500 million, up 5% from the end of 2020. ”

“We affirm our previously stated expectations for 2021 revenue of over $ 100 million versus $ 87.6 million in 2020 and net profit of over $ 4 million, not including $ 4.8 million of Other income related to the cancellation of our paycheck protection July 1, 2021. Program loan, compared to the net loss of $ 3.7 million in 2020. As 2022 approaches, we have the intention to remain focused on improving working capital management, strengthening our balance sheet through further debt reductions, increasing profit margins through improved operational efficiency, and reducing general and administrative expenses as legal and accounting fees return to historic levels. We will also continue to seek opportunities to optimize our product line and move away from products and programs that do not exist. could not achieve a satisfactory margin, ”concluded Mr. McCrosson.
