EDGEWOOD, N.Y., Aug. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®” or the “Company”) (OTC Expert Market: CVUA) today announced financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2021.
“We closed the year with EPS and cash flow from operations meeting our outlook for 2021,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO. “The combination of the 18% increase in revenue and 3.4 bps increase in gross margin resulted in $6.8 million in bottom line profitability, including our PPP loan forgiveness of $4.8 million. We achieved a $10.5 million improvement in net income and a $4.4 million improvement in operating cash flow compared to 2020, while reducing our debt by $7.2 million. In addition, total backlog as of December 31, 2021 increased to $501.7 million compared to $476.2 as of December 31, 2020,” said Dorith Hakim, president and CEO.
Added Ms. Hakim, “Today we filed our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. We are focused on becoming current with our Securities and Exchange Commission reports which will occur upon the filing of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022 (the “Forms 10-Q”). The Company believes the filing of the Forms 10-Q will resolve the condition that led to NYSE American suspending trading in the Company’s common stock on the Exchange and its determination to commence proceedings to delist the common stock from the Exchange. The Forms 10-Q will be filed as soon as practicable.”
Concluded Ms. Hakim, “Having completed a number of programs during 2021, we expect 2022 will be a transition year for CPI Aero while we prepare to ramp up on newer programs. As a result, we expect lower revenue in 2022 and have implemented actions in the first quarter of 2022 to align our costs with our outlook for revenue, and maintain our commitment to sustain profitability and positive operating cash flow for the year. We remain confident in CPI Aero’s long-term outlook and are looking forward to the opportunities ahead as we build on our reputation for high quality and reliable performance for our customers.”
