Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. Announces Third Quarter and First Nine Months of Fiscal 2015 Financial Results

By Business Wire News   


Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 ended June 30, 2015.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company reported revenues of $4.9 million, compared to revenues of $10.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Cash provided by operating activities was $150,000 for the quarter, a significant turnaround from $813,000 used in operating activities in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. The Company reported a third quarter 2015 operating loss of $0.3 million, which included an increased investment in internal research and development and new product development, and a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.21 per share, of which $3.3 million was attributable to a non-cash, valuation allowance of the Company’s deferred tax assets.

In the third quarter of 2014, the Company reported net income of $497,000, or $0.03 per share.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. said, “On the strength of growing interest in our expanding portfolio of products that we believe provide the industry’s best price-for-performance, we were able to increase our product revenues in the quarter versus the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Gross margins in the quarter were up from a year ago as production volume increased and development contracts continue to wind down. We also further reduced operating expenses in the quarter. While we reported an operating loss for the quarter, we increased cash flow from operations by nearly a million dollars from the third quarter of last year, adding to our already strong balance sheet. We are focused on rebuilding our backlog through aggressive marketing and product innovation. During the quarter we introduced our new Integrated Global Navigation System (IGNS) that we believe addresses the need for an economical solution that enables aging Flight Management Systems to be updated to today’s NexGen standards without the downtime or expense of replacing the entire system. This is just another example of Innovative Solutions and Support’s legacy of developing exciting new technologies that provide cost effective solutions to the military, commercial air transport, and business jet markets.”

At June 30, 2015, the Company had $15.8 million of cash on hand and remained debt free.

New orders for the quarter were $3.4 million, and backlog at June 30, 2015 was $4.8 million, compared to backlog of $6.3 million at March 31, 2015. Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders from products in development under the Company’s engineering development contracts, including the Eclipse 550, the Pilatus PC-24, and the KC-46A, all of which the Company expects to remain in production for a decade following completion of their development phases. The Company expects that these sole-source contracts will add to production sales already in backlog.

Nine Months Results

Total sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2015 were $16.9 million compared to sales of $34.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2014. Net loss for the nine months ended June 30, 2015 was $3.3 million, compared to net income of $2.3 million in the comparable year earlier period. The company had a $0.20 loss per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2015, compared to earnings per share of $0.13 for the first nine months of fiscal 2014. Cash provided by operating activities was $913,000 for the first nine months of fiscal 2015, up significantly from $1.6 million of cash used in operations during the first nine months of fiscal 2014.

Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “Our focus is on rebuilding backlog, particularly new production contracts, while continuing to improve operational efficiencies. Consequently, during the quarter we reduced total operating expenses while still increasing our investment in internal research and development. Those efforts yielded the rapid and timely development of our latest new product, the IGNS. On the new business front, we are experiencing increased activity levels in select markets, such as Europe, where we are seeing a concerted sales and marketing effort turn into new orders and opportunities. Our goal is to build on the success we have achieved introducing new technologies that have been employed by industry leaders such as Boeing, Lockheed and others and to expand our product portfolio into new and emerging applications that help owners and operators improve safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs.”
