Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, ended June 30, 2014.
For the third quarter, the Company reported revenue of $10.6 million, an increase of 20% from revenue of $8.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The Company reported third quarter 2014 net income of $497,000, or $0.03 per share, an increase from $307,000, or $0.02 per share, in the same quarter a year ago. Results for the third quarter of 2013 included a $0.03 per share non-recurring charge related to a previously disclosed legal matter.
Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (“ISSC”), said, “Results for the third quarter continue to reflect progress on our engineering development programs. As third quarter investment in engineering programs declined from the peak in the second quarter, we have been able to advance several development programs to close to completion. This year, we have begun production deliveries on the Eclipse 550, the KC-46A, the USAF PC-12, and the foreign C-130 full cockpit. As these programs are completed and the related products are certified, we believe that commercial air transport, military, and general aviation operators will want to capitalize on the significant price for performance advantages of the resulting products. By leveraging our core technology to develop a more comprehensive portfolio of products, we are expanding our addressable market and creating value for our shareholders."
At June 30, 2014, the Company had $14.4 million of cash on hand and no debt. During the third quarter of the current fiscal year the Company used approximately $813,000 of cash to fund operations compared to cash generated by operating activities of $670,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The year-over-year change in operating cash reflects primarily differences in the timing of cash expenditures and receipts associated with engineering programs during the quarter. We expect these differences to reverse as the programs meet contractual billing milestones and/or as production begins.
New orders for the quarter were $2.2 million, and backlog at June 30, 2014 was $72.5 million. Backlog includes a large contract with Delta Airlines, on which the Company anticipates beginning initial production deliveries later this year. Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders, including the Eclipse 550, the Pilatus PC-24, and the KC-46A, all of which the Company expects to remain in production for a decade.
Nine Months Results
Revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 were $34.2 million, an increase of 45% compared to $23.5 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 was $3.2 million, an increase of 68% compared to $1.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2013. Net income was $2.3 million, or $0.13 per share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2014, increases of 32% and 30%, respectively, compared to $1.7 million or $0.10 per share for first nine months of fiscal 2013.
Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “With several of our engineering programs at advanced stages of development, we are focused on completing development and transitioning these programs to full production. Consequently, engineering revenues have been much higher than normal. As these high levels of engineering investment begin to decline and production revenues replace them, we expect to generate gross margins more consistent with our historical experience. Further, as these programs achieve certification and enter production, we anticipate that our price for performance model will continue to generate interest from other potential customers. As a result of the operational changes that we made earlier this year, the organization is poised to simultaneously execute its development programs, to deliver on production orders, and to continue earning a profit for our shareholders.”
For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014, IS&S expects to increase sales, operating income, and net income compared to fiscal 2013 and to report its sixth consecutive profitable year, characterized by growing production volume as a result of its engineering investments. The Company will provide additional commentary during its earnings conference call.
The Company will be hosting a conference call July 30, 2014 at 10:00 AM ET to discuss these results and its business outlook.

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...

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Software developers are gaining more influence over the purchase decisions of technologies with which they must build on and with which they must integrate. For example, the success of Amazon Web Services, Heroku and MongoDB has been driven primarily by individual software developers choosing to use these tools, ra...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
