EXTON, PA — Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) recently announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, ended June 30, 2021.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company reported net sales of $6.2 million up 3% from the third quarter a year ago. The Company reported net income of $2.7 million, or $0.16 per share, which includes a $1.5 million tax benefit from the release of the deferred tax valuation allowance, up 108% from the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IS&S, said, “Revenues in the quarter were up both year-over-year, as well as sequentially from the second quarter of this year, as momentum builds. This growth was achieved during difficult times with the ongoing pandemic which is most encouraging and bodes well for the Company’s future.”
“We continue to expand in a number of our key markets. In air cargo conversions, demand remains robust for our Boeing 757 and 767 Flat Panel Display Systems, particularly from a premier on-line retailer, contributing to both our solid third quarter performance and growth in our backlog. OEM activity was also strong during the quarter, with an increase in the pace of autothrottle deliveries to Textron for the King Air. In fact, the August 2021 issue of Flying Magazine reviewed the King Air 360 and made it a point to feature our autothrottle with positive reviews. Flying Magazine called it ‘surely the star of the King Air 360’ from a pilot’s perspective, while Textron’s 360 technical marketing advisor and sales engineer called our autothrottle an ‘elegant little engineering solution.’ I’m pleased this highly respected aviation publication has validated the effort we have put into this groundbreaking control and safety solution for single-pilot aircraft. We look forward to building on our growing foundation of both retrofit and OEM programs as our strategy to create additional value for our shareholders.”
The Company’s cash on hand increased to $7.5 million on June 30, 2021, with net cash flows from operating activities of $1.5 million in the third quarter. Since September of 2020, nearly $20 million of cash has been distributed to shareholders while the Company remains in a strong financial position with significant liquidity and no debt.
New orders in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were approximately $9.0 million and backlog as of June 30, 2021 increased 40% to $9.5 million, up from $6.7 million at March 31, 2021. New orders for the nine- month period ended June 30, 2021 were approximately $22.0 million. Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders from the Pilatus PC-24, Textron King Air and the KC-46A programs, which the Company expects to remain in production for approximately a decade. 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, 2021 were $16.2 million up 6% from the nine months ended June 30, 2020. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 was $3.5 million, or $0.21 per share, up 75% from the first nine months of fiscal 2020.
