Avcorp announces 2012 Third Quarter Results

VANCOUVER, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Avcorp Industries Inc. (TSX: AVP) (the "Company" or "Avcorp") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded a loss from operations of $1,446,000 on $19,324,000 revenue, as compared to a $186,000 operating loss on $20,383,000 revenue for the same quarter in the preceding year; and a net loss for the current quarter of $2,729,000 as compared to a net loss of $150,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Current quarter revenues have decreased from the same quarter in the preceding year primarily as a result of the wind-down of Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) programs. During the third quarter 2012, the Company renewed its long-term agreement with the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group (Boeing CA) which is forecasted to provide in excess of $83 million revenue over the next five years. Start-up and commencement of production deliveries for BAE Systems (Operations) Limited (BAE) F35 program has also contributed to an overall $110 million increase in order backlog during the current quarter.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was negative $1,205,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to a positive EBITDA of $1,455,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.  The decline in EBITDA was primarily as a result of reduced revenues and costs associated with customer contract terminations. During the quarter-ended September 30, 2012, the Company incurred $825,000 (September 30, 2011: $136,000) in costs associated with customer contract terminations.

On September 27, 2012, the Company secured a three year $12,000,000 operating line of credit.  Concurrently, the Company repaid its $6,000,000 term loan.  Also during the quarter the Company increased its share capital by $2,798,000.

Cash flows from operating activities during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 provided $350,000 of cash as compared to utilizing $766,000 of cash during the quarter ended September 30, 2011.  The Company has a working capital surplus of $10,130,000 as at September 30, 2012 which has decreased from the December 31, 2011 $14,663,000 surplus, as a result of utilizing cash on hand to repay long-term debt.  The Company's accumulated deficit as at September 30, 2012 was $78,581,000 (December 31, 2011: $76,016,000).
