Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO, stated, “The increase in revenue for the three and nine month periods was primarily the result of work performed for the Boeing Company on the A-10 attack jet and Northrop Grumman Corporation on the E-2D surveillance airplane. As expected, 2011 third quarter revenue increased by only 28% with the big surge in revenue to come in the fourth quarter. As we are now well into the fourth quarter, we can say with added confidence that the fourth quarter of 2011 will be the highest revenue quarter in CPI Aero’s history by a significant margin.“As compared to last year, for the first nine months of this year, revenue generated from government subcontracts and commercial subcontracts increased by 69.2% and 19.5%, respectively, offset by a 39% revenue decrease from prime government contracts. This was an anticipated shift resulting from our marketing focus on subcontracting work over the last several years.”
