Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.
For the first quarter, the Company reported revenue of $6.5 million, a 35 percent increase compared to the first quarter fiscal 2012 revenue of $4.8 million. The Company reported first quarter 2013 net income of $318,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $343,000, or ($0.02) per fully diluted share, in the same quarter a year ago.
Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (“ISSC”) said, “The year is off to a strong start, with 35 percent revenue growth leading to our fourth consecutive profitable quarter. New orders totaled over $16 million in the quarter, which increased backlog by nearly $10 million over the last three months. The majority of the orders are related to strategically important new products. These results reflect our strategy of growth through a combination of near term orders for existing products and simultaneous investment in new capabilities that build upon our proprietary technology to develop new opportunities for us across our various commercial air transport, general aviation, and military markets. Over the course of this year, we expect R & D spending to remain elevated and gross margins to reflect a higher mix of Engineering Modification and Development (“EMD”) contracts as we focus on completing programs that will enable us to bring new products to market. Despite the continuing high level of engineering spend on EMD programs and IR&D, we expect to remain profitable. We are progressing toward the next phase of our growth strategy, as we begin a transition from new product development to production orders.”
In December 2012, the Company paid a special cash dividend of $1.50 per share, or an aggregate payment of approximately $25 million. At December 31, 2012, the Company had $17 million in cash and no debt.
First Quarter orders of $16.3 million, backlog increases by 50%
Orders were $16.3 million in the first quarter and backlog was approximately $29.4 million at December 31, 2012, up almost $10 million over the last three months from $19.7 million at September 30, 2012. Backlog includes only modest levels of potential future sole-source production orders from products currently in development under the Company’s EMD contracts.
Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “The first quarter was noteworthy from both a strategic and operational perspective. We booked over $16 million in new business, including production orders for near-term delivery and orders for new products. These orders include a $4 million military contract to provide the Company’s integrated suite of avionics for the C-130 and L-100 aircraft, and an order from Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. for an initial fifty ship sets of our advanced avionics suite. Strategically, we will be providing a first-of-its-kind military application of our flight management system and Beta 3 GPS receivers that provide RNP (Required Navigational Performance) and LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) capabilities. Operationally, these new contracts include initial orders for the more profitable sole source production of products developed under our EMD programs. We are focused on increasing shareholder value by remaining dedicated to serving customers by improving aircraft performance with dependable, high-quality products that offer competitively priced, enhanced functionality.”
Mr. Hedrick concluded that, “For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013, we expect to increase sales and generate a profit, which would represent our fifth consecutive profitable year. Our ability to provide specific targets and ranges remains difficult in the present economic climate; however, we are optimistic about results for 2013. We continue to project that 2013 sales will increase over 2012 sales; however, the continued high investment in lower margin EMD programs and IR&D will constrain the growth of operating income. We will provide additional commentary during our earnings conference call.”
The Company will be hosting a conference call January 24, 2013 at 10:00 AM ET to discuss these results and its business outlook.

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...
