Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO, stated, “Our 2011 fourth quarter was the best quarter in CPI Aero’s history in terms of revenue and net income. For the year as a whole, the 68.5% increase in revenue was primarily the result of work performed on our three major subcontract awards won in 2008: the Gulfstream G650 program, Boeing A-10 program and NGC E-2D program which accounted for 11%, 30% and 26% of our 2011 revenue, respectively. In 2011 revenue generated from prime government contracts increased by 51% to approximately $6.7 million; revenue generated from government subcontracts increased by 79% to approximately $57 million primarily the result of the A-10 and E-2D programs; and, revenue generated from commercial contracts increased by 35% to approximately $10.2 million due to higher production rates on the G650 aircraft.”
