During the fourth quarter of 2009, CPI Aerostructures recorded the highest quarterly revenue in the company’s history of approximately $12.7 million with a net income of roughly $1.5 million.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aerostructures’s president and chief executive officer, stated, “We are obviously pleased with our preliminary 2009 financial results, which demonstrate the evolution of our company since 2006, when our revenue was approximately $18 million.” Mr. Fred continued, “We believe that the long-term contracts we received in 2008 and the shift to performing more subcontracting work have transformed CPI Aero into an industry-respected manufacturer of structural assemblies for the global aerospace and defense industry.”
Based on the company’s current visibility, senior management expects 2010 revenue in the range of $48 million to $51 million, generating a net income in the range of $4.3 million to $4.8 million.
