EDGEWOOD, N.Y., Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®” or the “Company”) (OTC Expert Market: CVUA) today announced financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2022.
“Today we filed our first quarter 2022 results on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022. While our first quarter 2022 revenue was lower than first quarter 2021, we have improved our gross profit margin by 110 bps. Net loss for the first quarter 2022 was $(0.03) million including $0.8 million severance accrual,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO.
Added Ms. Hakim, “2022 is a transition year for CPI Aero as we completed a number of programs in 2021 and are preparing to ramp up on newer programs. As a result, we expect lower revenue in 2022 versus 2021 and therefore implemented actions in the first quarter of 2022 intended to align our costs with our outlook for revenue while sustaining profitability and positive operating cash flow for the year. We have improved our cash balance to $2.9 million as of March 31, 2022 versus $0.8 million on March 31, 2021 while reducing our debt by $0.9 million. In addition, total backlog as of March 31, 2022 increased to $504.3 million compared to $501.7 million as of December 31, 2021.”
Concluded Ms. Hakim, “We are focused on becoming current with our Securities and Exchange Commission reports which will occur upon the filing of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”). The Company believes the filing of the Form 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 Form 10-Q will be filed as soon as practicable.”
