CVD Reports First Quarter Orders, Revenues and Backlog Increase

CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ:CVV) announces its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

New orders of approximately $15,725,000 were received during the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to approximately $3,174,000 of new orders received during the three months ended March 31, 2013, Revenues for the current three month period were $4,385,000 an increase of $935,000 or 27.1% compared to revenues of $3,450,000 for the three month period ending March 31, 2013. This influx of new orders brought the backlog levels to $15,257,000 at March 31, 2014 compared to $3,917,000 at December 31, 2013. Timing for completion of the backlog varies depending on the product mix and can range between three months and two years.

The Company, as a result of the increased revenue and higher gross margins for the current three month period, reduced its loss from operations to approximately ($50,000) compared to a loss from operations of approximately ($870,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2013. In April of 2014, New York State eliminated the state income tax for qualified manufacturing companies such as CVD. Due to this change in tax law, the Company was required to write off state-level deferred tax assets of $381,000 which would have been used to offset future taxes payable to New York State. Consequently, we reported a net loss of approximately ($268,000) or ($0.04) per share basic and diluted compared to a net loss of ($440,000) or ($0.07) per share basic and diluted. Without this one time write off which resulted from the change in the New York State tax law, the Company would have posted net earnings of approximately $142,000 or $0.02 per share basic and diluted.

The Company continues to maintain a strong cash position and a healthy working capital ratio.

Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “The increase in new orders are a reflection of the Company’s ability to now commit its efforts towards the operations of the business and leave the matters of moving into our new headquarters behind. Based on the interest in our products and current quotation levels we expect continued growth in orders and resulting profits going forward. The advances we have made in i) Graphene production, ii) deposition equipment for the medical and aerospace applications, iii) custom chemical vapor deposition systems and iv) equipment for research will continue to fuel our growth.”
