Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Financial Results
Public Company Information:
For the third quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company reported total revenues of $6.5 million, compared to third quarter fiscal 2015 total revenues of $4.9 million. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2016 was $3.9 million, or more than double the same period a year ago. Gross margin in the quarter was 60% as production revenues were 50% higher than those of the comparable period a year ago. The Company reported third quarter 2016 net income of $227,000, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.21 per share, in the third quarter a year ago, of which $3.3 million was attributable to a non-cash, valuation allowance of the Company’s deferred tax assets.
Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IS&S, said, “I am pleased to report another profitable quarter, once again largely due to an increasing proportion of higher margin production revenue. Gross margins in the quarter were 60%, which led to a doubling of gross profits in the quarter and helped maintain gross margins at the 60% level through the first nine months of this year. Similar to last quarter, the bottom line reflects a significant increase in year-over-year legal expenses as well as a strong commitment to internally fund research and development, which reached nearly 22% of revenues this quarter. Although new order activity has been uneven this year, orders are up over 50%, revenues are up almost 30% and cash flows from operations have improved by over 80% over the first nine months of this fiscal year as compared to fiscal 2015. Book-and-ship activity has played a meaningful role in quarterly results over the past 18 months, which, we expect to continue. We have never had a broader set of products or richer set of relationships than we do now, all of which we believe reflect our ability to deliver products that meet the industry’s intense price-for-performance demands and will drive top-line growth for the future. Financial results so far this year show that we have succeeded in returning to growth this year and that we will be entering the next fiscal year in an even stronger position.”
At June 30, 2016, the Company had $17.5 million of cash on hand, up approximately $1.2 million from September 30, 2015. Cash provided by operating activities was $0.7 million for the quarter. Cash balances also reflect the use of $170,000 to repurchase shares during the quarter.
New orders in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 were $5.3 million, and backlog was $6.4 million at June 30, 2016. Backlog excludes potential future production orders from products in development under the Company’s engineering development contracts, including the Pilatus PC-24 and the KC-46A, which the Company expects to remain in production for a decade following completion of their respective development phases. The Company expects that these contracts will add to production sales already in backlog.
Nine Months Results
Total sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2016 were $21.7 million, an increase of 28%, compared to $16.9 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2015. Gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was $13.1 million(1), up 109% from the year ago period. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2016 was $1.6 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to a loss of $3.3 million, or $0.20 per share, over the first three quarters of fiscal 2015.
Shahram Askarpour, President of IS&S, added, "Over the first three quarters of fiscal 2016 we have made significant progress in our strategy to broaden our product offering with more internally-developed solutions and to further diversify our customer base, both domestically and internationally. We have also effectively transitioned to primarily production revenues, a driver of significantly better gross margins and one of our key strategic imperatives. With an established and growing base of owners and operators who have successfully implemented an IS&S solution, we are seeing an increase in repeat business from these customers as they look to further upgrade their fleets. This is leading to a steady cadence of book-and-ship production order flow. By internally developing a range of new products targeting the NexGen mandate, such as Autothrottle and IGNS, we have a growing portfolio of products that can be adapted to many different aircraft with a minimal investment in additional engineering time or expense, thereby increasing our versatility and expanding our market opportunity. We remain focused on continuous product improvement and innovation, and believe that the progress achieved this year has us on track to continue to build value for our shareholders over the long-term."
(1)In January 2016, the company renegotiated an agreement with a customer whereby $1.3 million of an unbilled receivable and our obligations associated with certain product levels were canceled. The bad debt expense related to the impairment of the unbilled receivable was previously recognized in the company's September 30, 2015 audited financial statements. In addition, as a result of the changes to the agreement, we recognized an approximately $1.2 million positive impact to the statement of operations in the second quarter resulting from a reversal of $1.2 million in associated liabilities consisting of deferred revenue and a contract loss accrual.
