“Our selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of revenue for the third quarter and nine months decreased to 7.6% and 8.6%, respectively, as compared to 9.2% and 10.8%, respectively, in the same periods of last year, mainly due to changes we implemented earlier this year in our policy of issuing stock options to our board of directors.”Mr. Fred added, “As of November 7, 2012, we received approximately $68.9 million of new contract awards, of which approximately $63.0 million was for government subcontract awards, as compared to a total of $81.5 million of new contract awards, of all types, in the same period last year.” Included in new contract awards are:
- A $12.7 million purchase order from Boeing for assemblies on the A-10 aircraft.
- A $10.7 million order from Goodrich Corporation to supply structural aerospace assemblies; for the first time in CPI Aero’s history, this contract gives the Company the authority to design modifications to the structure it is manufacturing.
- An $18.8 million long-term agreement with Sikorsky to manufacture gunner window assemblies for the BLACK HAWK helicopter.
- A $5 million initial order as part of an approximately $41 million long-term contract with Cessna to supply structural assemblies, predominately wing spars, for the Citation X aircraft.
Discussing the outlook for 2013, Mr. Fred added, “As is the case for our industry peers, it remains unclear whether sequestration will take effect in January 2013 and what the impact of even deeper cuts in defense spending will have on CPI Aero’s existing and projected defense contracts. We plan to announce our 2013 guidance once the federal budget situation becomes sufficiently defined.”Mr. Fred concluded, “Finally, to support our continued growth, this summer we raised approximately $13.5 million through a public offering, which has given us greater financial flexibility. We used $4 million of the net proceeds to repay a portion our revolver and as of September 30, 2012, we have credit lines in place with a combined borrowing capacity of $22.5 million.” Conference Call CPI Aero’s President and CEO, Edward J.
