EDGEWOOD, N.Y., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®”) (NYSE American: CVU) today announced financial results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020.

“Through continued execution of our funded defense backlog, we delivered solid results for the second quarter,” said Douglas McCrosson, president and CEO of CPI Aero. “Revenue was essentially flat with last year, reflecting revenue increases in our defense business offset by weakness in our commercial aviation business. As expected, gross margin percentage rebounded from the first quarter and we continue to expect that full-year 2020 gross margin percentage will be higher than 2019. Notably, we generated operating cash flow for the quarter, demonstrating initial evidence of our working capital improvement initiatives. On a year-to-date basis, cash from operations improved $2.5 million vs. last year despite a headwind of cash payments of approximately $.8 million for non-recurring professional fees related to the restatement.”

“Subsequent to the quarter end, we applied for full forgiveness of our $4.8 Paycheck Protection Loan we received under the CARES Act in April. The forgiveness application has been accepted by our lender during the fourth quarter and forwarded to the Small Business Administration for review and final approval. We expect that upon SBA approval, the balance sheet will reflect the conversion of the loan to a grant and the amount of the loan that is forgiven will be included in future results as ‘Other Income’. Despite the revenue decline during the first half of the year, our funded defense backlog of $205.6 million at June 30 is fueling a strong second half of the year, both in terms of accelerating revenue and margin improvement, and we expect to end the year with higher revenue and operating income than 2019,” concluded McCrosson.
