2018 Highlights

Key financial results include:

  • First quarter 2018 operating loss was reduced by $4,011,000, in comparison to the same quarter in 2017, primarily as a result of increased revenues, consolidation of costs and improved operating effectiveness

  • Avcorp is a member of Canada's Digital Technology Supercluster ("CDTS") which was awarded funding under the Federal Government's Innovation Supercluster Initiative ("ISI").
  • In Comtek's continuing effort to reduce the operator's key metric of turnaround time for repaired components, while still providing premium quality, Comtek has embarked on deploying a forward base of operations located in the United Kingdom. Doors open in the third quarter and will initially provide much needed support for the growing Q400 fleet in Europe.
  • On April 19, 2018 Avcorp's Board appointed Amandeep Kaler, formerly the General Manager of Avcorp's Delta operations, as the new CEO of Avcorp Group.

Review of 2018 First Quarter Financial Results

For the quarter ending March 31, 2018, the Avcorp Group recorded losses from operations totaling $4,606,000 from $43,276,000 revenue, which include costs incurred on start-up of new programs, as compared to $8,617,000 operating losses from $38,568,000 revenue for the same quarter in the previous year. Increased sales and continued consolidation of operating costs have resulted in reduced current quarter operating losses, in comparison to the same quarter in 2017. It should be noted that 2018 operating losses benefited by $1,965,000 income from amortization of an unfavourable contract liability into income (2017: $2,636,000). 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2018, cash flows from operating activities, excluding the impact of changes in non‑cash working capital, utilized $4,572,000 of cash as compared with utilization of $9,703,000 of cash during the quarter ended March 31, 2017; a significant $5,131,000 improvement, primarily attributable to a reduction in operating losses during 2018 in comparison to 2017. Changes in non-cash working capital during the current quarter further utilized cash flows from operating activities by $7,653,000 as compared to the same quarter in the previous year during which non-cash working capital provided $9,327,000; primarily as a result of a growth in accounts receivable attributable to increased sales.

As at March 31, 2018, the Company had $2,313,000 cash on hand (December 31, 2017: $5,212,000) and had utilized $74,558,000 of its operating line of credit (December 31, 2017: $61,283,000). The Company has a working capital deficit of $75,701,000 as at March 31, 2018 which has increased from the December 31, 2017 $63,613,000 deficit. Working capital surplus/deficit is defined as the difference between current assets and current liabilities. The Company's accounts receivable and inventories net of accounts payable, amount to a $26,519,000 surplus as at March 31, 2018 (December 31, 2017: $37,889,000 surplus). The Company's accumulated deficit as at March 31, 2018 is $164,943,000 (December 31, 2017: $157,185,000).
