EXTON, Pa.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended September 30, 2016.
Revenues for fiscal 2016 were $28.0 million compared to $20.1 million for fiscal 2015. For the current year, operating income was $2.4 million, and net income was $2.0 million or $0.12 per share. In fiscal 2015, the Company reported an operating loss of $(3.6) million and a net loss of $(5.9) million or $(0.35) per share.
Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. said, “Fiscal 2016 was a year of significant improvement, returning to positive growth in revenues, profits and cash flow, while also positioning ISSC to capitalize on emerging opportunities expected to arise with the approach of new NextGen mandates. We believe our strategy is sound and is working as we transformed the nature of our revenue over the past year so that we now generate over 90% of our revenue from profitable production contracts. The transformation of the air traffic control system, often referred to as the 'NextGen mandates', holds great promise, as it is expected to yield significant improvements to both aircraft safety and performance. Over the past year, we have significantly increased our commitment to internally developed new products and are expanding our distribution channels in order to further penetrate this market. The fully NextGen - compliant cockpit we’ve developed - capable of meeting all known upcoming mandates over the next 10 years - illustrates our ability to quickly respond to emerging opportunities. I am confident that we have adopted strategy, developed the technologies, and the financial strength that will enable us to continue to create value for our shareholders.”
At September 30, 2016, the Company had $18.8 million of cash on hand and remained debt free. Cash increased by $2.5 million during the course of fiscal 2016. New orders for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 were $4.4 million, and backlog at September 30, 2016 was $4.6 million, compared to $6.4 million at June 30, 2016. Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders from products in development under the Company’s engineering development contracts, including the Pilatus PC-24, and the KC-46A, both of 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.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company reported revenues of $6.2 million, compared to revenues of $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Cash provided by operating activities was $1.9 million for the quarter. The Company reported fourth quarter fiscal 2016 operating income of $500,000 and net income of $400,000, or $0.02 per share. The Company reported a fourth quarter fiscal 2015 net loss of $2.6 million, or $(0.15) per share.
Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “Fiscal 2016 was a transformational year in which we modified our strategy, realigned our resources and strengthened relationships, all of which now serve as a solid foundation from which to continue to grow. By concentrating on production contracts, we’ve sharpened our focus, which has returned gross margins to their higher, historic levels. A greater emphasis on internally funded research and development investment has enabled us to create new products that we believe can quickly capitalize on current market needs. These products also appeal to broad market opportunities in contrast to the narrower market potential of the customer-funded engineering programs that characterized many past development efforts. And, by supplementing our strong base of customers with an expanding distribution network, we can continue to build a steady stream of increasingly more stable underlying book-and-ship production revenue. At the same time, we are preparing for a market that is anxious to implement the latest in NextGen technology. By incorporating NextGen technologies such as ADS-B in, ADS-B out, LPV and RNP capabilities into our products, many operators are not waiting for FAA mandates and are choosing to start to update their cockpits now. This is creating increased interest, especially in our Flight Management System. We enter fiscal 2017 in strong financial position, and with a game plan that is intended to optimize the value of our franchise and benefit our shareholders.”
