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).

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
