EDGEWOOD, N.Y., April 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVU) today announced financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2022.

“We closed the year with results from operations and EPS exceeding our 2021 performance,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO. “The combination of the reduction in non-profitable programs and operational performance improvements resulted in a 5.1 percentage point increase in gross margin delivering $9.2 million in bottom line profitability, including our deferred tax asset valuation allowance reduction of $6.5 million described below. We achieved a $2.4 million improvement in net income compared to 2021 on lower revenues with higher margins, while reducing our debt by $3.4 million and increasing working capital by 5.9%. In addition, total backlog as of December 31, 2022 increased to $514.5 million compared to $501.7 million as of December 31, 2021,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO.

Added Ms. Hakim, “After reevaluating our net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”), and based on our performance outlook, we determined that the valuation allowance we maintain on our deferred tax asset should be reduced by $6.5 million, and we realized a tax benefit in the fourth quarter of 2022 of the same amount upon recording this reduction.”

Ms. Hakim noted that “the Company’s financial performance has resulted in the Company regaining compliance with the continued listing standards of Section 1003(a)(i) and 1003(a)(ii) of the NYSE American Company Guide. At December 31, 2022, the Company had income from continuing operations for its last two fiscal years, shareholders’ equity of $4.2 million and total assets and annual revenue in excess of $50 million. As of March 20, 2023, the “BC” compliance indicator was no longer disseminated by NYSE American and the Company was removed from the list of noncompliant issuers on NYSE American’s website.”

Concluded Ms. Hakim, “We have completed a number of programs during 2022 and started ramping up our manufacturing capacity in support of newer programs. As a result, we expect slightly higher revenue in 2023 while sustaining 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.”
