Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Financial Results


Exton, PA. – February 10, 2021– Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (“IS&S” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, ended December 31, 2020.


For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company reported net sales of $4.9 million, up from net sales of $4.5 million in the first quarter a year ago. The Company reported operating income of $232,000 and net income of $240,000, or $0.01 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to operating income of $232,000 buoyed by interest income to a net income of $328,000, or $0.02 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.


Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IS&S, said, “The results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 reflect revenue growth, and positive cash flow compared to the year ago quarter. I am very pleased with the continued success we are experiencing growing our portfolio of production contracts for both retrofit and new production aircraft in spite of the Pandemic’s impact on our anticipated exponential market demand. However, continued demand is providing a solid base of recurring revenue on which to build. We are also experiencing healthy demand for our Boeing 757 and 767 Flat Panel Upgrade system and Eclipse software upgrade. Innovative Solutions and Support remains focused on creating value for our shareholders through the continued development of the industry’s leading price-for-performance technology in the Commercial Air Transport, Military and General Aviation markets.”





“We’ve achieved these results while remaining committed to implementing precautions against COVID-19 that seek to ensure the safety of our employees, suppliers and customers. Reflecting our continued confidence, in December we declared a special, $0.50 per share dividend to provide tangible returns to our shareholders. Together with the $0.65 dividend declared in September, over the last six months of calendar 2020 we returned nearly $20 million of cash to our shareholders. Even after these distributions, we remain in excellent financial condition with significant liquidity and no debt.”


At December 31, 2020, the Company had $5.6 million of cash on hand. Net cash flows from operating activities were $1.7 million in the quarter.


New orders in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 were $5.4 million, and backlog as of December 31, 2020, was $4.2 million. Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders from the Pilatus PC-24, the KC-46A and the Textron King Air 360 and King Air 260 ThrustSense® Autothrottle programs, all of which the Company expects to remain in production for a decade. The Company expects that these contracts will add to production sales already in backlog.
