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. Those planning to dial in to the call should dial the following number and register their names and company affiliations: 877-883-0383, and enter the PIN Number 0070901.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing perf...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
