Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Financial Results


Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. ("IS&S" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ISSC)
today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal
2017 ended June 30, 2017.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company reported net sales of
$4.5 million, compared to third quarter fiscal 2016 net sales of $6.5
million. Gross margins in the third quarter were 52% compared to 60% in
the third quarter of fiscal 2016. The Company reported net income of
$19,000, or approximately $0.00 per fully diluted share, for the third
quarter of 2017 compared to net income of $227,000, or $0.01 per fully
diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IS&S, said,
"Sales in the third quarter were consistent with the previous quarter,
with a concentration of revenues generated from more profitable product
sales resulting in an increase to gross margin compared to the second
fiscal quarter. More importantly, we continued to implement our strategy
to expand our product portfolio and grow our distribution network. We
are partnering with Blackhawk Modifications, Inc. (Blackhawk) as a
distributor and installation center for our NextGen Flight Deck and
Integrated Turboprop Autothrottle for the King Air 200 and 350
platforms. We'll be working with Blackhawk for flight testing and
product certification and expect to receive a Supplemental Type
Certification (STC) for the Autothrottle on these platforms in the next
few months. In June, the FAA issued to IS&S the first STC for a
Turboprop Autothrottle, (Patent Pending Design) for the PC-12. We
believe based on conversations with aviation experts and partners that
this first-of-its-kind technology should open a market that features at
least twenty-five different aircraft types and over 10,000 individual
aircraft opportunities. We plan to leverage the innovative functionality
of the Autothrottle to add additional value to our NextGen Flight Deck."

At June 30, 2017, the Company had $25.0 million of cash on hand, an
increase of $6.2 million compared to September 30, 2016, our last fiscal
year end.

New orders in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 were $3.0 million and
backlog, as of June 30, 2017, was $4.3 million. Backlog excludes
potential future sole-source production orders from products developed
under the Company's Pilatus PC-24 and Boeing KC-46A engineering
development contracts, both of which the Company expects to remain in
production for more than a decade. The Company expects that these
contracts will add to their production sales already in backlog.

Shahram Askarpour, President of IS&S, added, "This has been a year of
significant commitment to new product development and distribution
network expansion. Research and development expenses were 27% of
revenues through the first three quarters of this year as we continue to
invest in internal development of new products that can address broader
markets, not just individual manufacturers. Already this year, we have
been awarded two STCs that we believe will position us for meaningful
growth opportunities. In addition, we've increased our efforts to build
out our global MRO distribution network. By continually expanding our
product portfolio and enhancing our global distribution network, we are
striving to increase our addressable market and strengthen the value of
our franchise for shareholders."

Nine Months Results

Total net sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2017 were $12.6
million compared to $21.7 million for the first nine months of fiscal
2016. Gross margin for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 was 50%
compared to 60%(1) in the year ago period. Net income for the
nine months ended June 30, 2017 was $4.8 million, or $0.28 per fully
diluted share, compared to $1.6 million(1), or $0.09 per
fully diluted share(1), over the first three quarters of
fiscal 2016. In the second quarter of 2017, as a result the settlement
of the Delta Airlines, Inc. ("Delta") lawsuit, the Company recognized
$4.1 million of other income.


(1) In January 2016, the Company renegotiated an agreement
with a customer whereby $1.3 million of unbilled receivables and our
obligations associated with certain product levels were canceled. The
bad debt expense related to the impairment of the unbilled receivable
was previously recognized in the Company's September 30, 2015 audited
financial statements. In addition, as a result of the changes to the
agreement, we recognized an approximately $1.2 million positive impact
to the statement of operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2016
resulting from a reversal of $1.2 million in associated liabilities
consisting of deferred revenue and a contract loss accrual.
