"We delivered another solid performance in the third quarter despite order push-outs from newer defense programs still in their development phase that delayed revenue recognition. Working capital improvements, in particular, combined with higher margins drove positive operating cash flow of approximately $0.9 million in the quarter that enabled us to further pay down the outstanding balance on our line of credit," stated Douglas McCrosson, CPI Aero president and CEO. "Our defense market strategy continued to yield positive results. New awards from Sikorsky, the U.S. Air Force and Lockheed Martin added to our defense backlog in the quarter, which kept our defense book-to-bill at nearly 1.0. Subsequent to the close of the quarter we received a follow-on order in support of a foreign military aircraft sale valued at approximately $6 million. These awards highlight our growing reputation in the military supply chain as a high quality, lower cost alternative to in-house assembly work grounded in exceptional program execution, value and customer service."
Continued Mr. McCrosson, "Looking ahead, we expect operating cash flow to remain positive on the basis of margin expansion as certain programs transition to full production and cost and process improvements. We remain focused on growing our top-line and expanding our backlog, particularly for our defense products. As the outlook for U.S. defense sector fundamentals improves and spending is allocated to both readiness and modernization, our core competency uniquely positions us to support both legacy and next-generation platforms, and both are reflected in our pipeline of opportunities. Based on our year to date performance and the momentum in backlog we are seeing, we believe we are firmly on a trajectory for sustained top-line growth and profitability."
CPI Aero has updated its financial guidance for fiscal 2017 in light of its third quarter results. The company now expects:
Revenue at the low end of its prior range of $82.5 million and $87.0 million;
Pre-tax income to be at the high end of a range of $8.1 million to $8.5 million;
Effective tax rate of approximately 35%.
