CPI Aerostructures Reports Third Quarter and Nine Month 2023 Results
Third Quarter 2023 vs. Third Quarter 2022
Nine Months 2023 vs. Nine Months 2022
EDGEWOOD, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVU) today announced financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023.
“During the third quarter, we continued to execute on our plan to strengthen our balance sheet and build shareholder value. However, supply chain technical challenges negatively impacted our throughput and gross profit during the quarter. In addition, our year-over-year comparison was difficult given that the prior year’s third quarter benefited from a favorable mix. Nevertheless, our nine month revenue was up 6.3% and gross profit up 4.4% over prior year,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO.
“We continued to use cash flow from operations and paid off our term loan in full, reducing total debt by $2.8 million over prior year. We remain confident in our long-term outlook based on the corrective actions implemented in our supply chain, the increase in our funded backlog and our total backlog of $503 million as of September 30, 2023.”
