Avcorp announces 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results

VANCOUVER, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Avcorp Industries Inc. (TSX: AVP) (the "Company" or "Avcorp") today announced its consolidated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2013, the Company generated $19,767,000 revenue as compared to $19,324,000 revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Current quarter revenues have remained relatively stable from the same quarter in the preceding year, primarily as the wind-down of Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna") programs has been offset by an increase in F-35 Outboard Wing program revenues.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was positive $514,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to a negative EBITDA of $1,205,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  The increase in EBITDA was primarily as a result of increased gross profit, as well as reduced administrative and general expenses.

On September 5, 2013 the Company entered into a settlement agreement, from a court directed mediation with Cessna, which settled all outstanding litigation between the Company and Cessna. The settlement required payment by Cessna of US$27,964,000 in satisfaction of the US$28,464,000 judgement entered against Cessna by the United States District Court for the District of Kansas (the "District Court") on May 8, 2013 which judgement was under appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. The settlement funds were received in full by the Company on September 6, 2013.  The acceptance by the Company of a settlement amount less than that awarded by the District Court in a previous quarter has resulted in the Company reducing a previously recorded gain by $525,000 during the current quarter.  The settlement satisfies the judgement and has resulted in the dismissal of the outstanding appeal.

A restructuring provision amounting to approximately $224,000 has been recorded during the current quarter to reflect severance costs associated with employees laid-off during the current quarter.

In addition to the above-noted charges against income, the current quarter $1,139,000 loss (September 30, 2012: $2,729,000 loss) includes a $644,000 foreign exchange loss resulting from holding foreign currency denominated cash, accounts receivable and payable; while the loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 included a $300,000 foreign exchange loss.

Cash flows from operating activities, before consideration of changes in non-cash working capital utilized $4,063,000 of cash for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to utilizing $2,866,000 of cash during the same quarter in the previous year.  The increase in cash utilization in 2013 from 2012 is primarily attributable to recognition of revenues which were funded in previous periods. The Company has a working capital surplus of $30,103,000 as at September 30, 2013 which has decreased from the December 31, 2012 $34,819,000 surplus, as a result of repaying bank indebtedness from settlement proceeds.  The Company's accumulated deficit as at September 30, 2013 is $54,810,000 (December 31, 2012: $55,375,000).
