(“CPI Aero®” or the “Company”) (OTC Expert Market: CVUA) today announced financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022.

“Today we filed our second quarter 2022 results on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 and we are now current with our Securities and Exchange Commission reports. The Company believes the filing of this Form 10-Q will resolve the condition that led to NYSE American suspending trading in the Company’s common stock on the Exchange and its determination to commence proceedings to delist the common stock from the Exchange. We intend to request that the Exchange retract its delisting determination and resume trading of our common stock although there can be no assurance as to if or when the Exchange may do so,” said Dorith Hakim, President and CEO.

Added Ms. Hakim, “During the second quarter we continued to on-board new programs with first deliveries starting in the fourth quarter of 2022. Our gross profit margin increased 320 basis points due to a 19% increase in revenues in our Aerostructures programs and improved performance in our Welding products. Finally, we continued to pay down our debt while generating positive operating cash flow.”

Concluded Ms. Hakim, “With a total backlog of $504 million as of June 30, 2022, we remain confident in CPI Aero’s long-term outlook and are looking forward to the opportunities ahead as we build on our reputation for high quality and reliable performance.”
