Sponsored by Businesswire

Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (“IS&S” or the “Company”) (ISSC) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2019, ended September 30, 2019.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company reported net sales of $4.8 million, up 33% from $3.6 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. The Company reported fourth quarter net income of $1.0 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $414,000, or ($0.03) per share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Revenues were also up sequentially for the seventh time in the last eight quarters.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IS&S, said, “The fourth quarter was a strong finish to a year in which we generated growth in revenues, earnings and cash flow. For the year, revenues were up 27%. These results reflect the strategy I discussed last year to focus on fewer, but potentially more lucrative, growth opportunities. We also ended fiscal 2019 with our best quarter of new orders, the highest quarterly order intake rate in more than two years. In addition, we received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for our patented ThrustSense® Auto-throttle retrofit for the King Air included revolutionary aircraft safety system integrated into the auto-throttle.”

The ThrustSense® system, designed to prevent Engine-out loss-of-control accidents was recently reviewed in the aircraft industry periodical Aviation International News:

the King Air ThrustSense system adds more than just easier speed control and engine management. In the King Air, the IS&S auto-throttles also offer a significant safety benefit in case of failure of one engine, especially on takeoff. This hazard has come under the microscope as a result of a pair of King Air takeoff accidents: in Wichita in 2014; and Addison, Texas, on July 1 this year.”

“This FAA STC,” continued Hedrick, “establishes a solid foundation to expand our technology throughout the King Air and other families of twin-engine equipped aircraft.”

At September 30, 2019, the Company had $22.4 million of cash on hand, up over two million dollars from September 30, 2018 as net cash flows from operating activities were in excess of $2.1 million for the year. New orders in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 were over $6 million, the highest new order quarter this year, and backlog as of September 30, 2019, was $5.9 million. Backlog excludes potential future ongoing production orders from the Pilatus PC-24 and the KC-46A programs both of which are currently in production. The Company expects both programs to remain in production for multiple years and that these contracts will add to production sales already in backlog.

Full Year Results

Total sales for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, were $17.6 million, up 27% from $13.9 million for full year 2018. The company reported fiscal 2019 net income of $1.9 million, or $0.11 per share, a significant improvement from a net loss of $3.7 million, or ($0.22) per share for fiscal 2018.

Conference Call
