CVD Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results


CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV),
a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced
its second quarter 2018 financial results.

"The second quarter was a transitional one for CVD as we wind down the
large aviation component projects and invested in our new CVD Materials
facility - moving forward on our plan for added future growth in this
sector," said Len Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The
new CVD Materials facility expands our local footprint and expertise to
seamlessly integrate customer needs and specifications into our products
and solutions. In tandem we increased our investment in R&D across our
portfolio to bring more value to our customers in high potential
markets. As a result of this increased R&D investment, we recently filed
three (3) provisional patent applications for our Tantaline® corrosion
resistant coatings and treatment to specialty metals for demanding
applications. Additionally, we are preparing to file a provisional
patent on carbon composites that has applications in areas such as
aerospace, medical, MEMs and filtration. These investments will help
position us to meet future demand and profitability over the longer-term
in new and growing markets."

Revenue for the second quarter was $6.4 million, compared to $9.2
million in the prior quarter and $10.8 million from the same period last
year. Net loss for the second quarter was $1.3 million compared to
income of $0.6 million in the prior quarter and income of $1.3 million a
year ago. This loss is primarily a result of the ongoing costs related
to the CVD Materials business, costs associated with maintaining a
production staff in anticipation of receiving additional equipment
orders (which to date have not materialized) and existing contract
adjustments. Net loss per share was $0.21 compared to income of $0.09 in
the first quarter of 2018 and income of $0.20 a year ago. Backlog as of
June 30, 2018 was $6.4 million compared to $9.8 million on March 31,
2018. In light of our results for this quarter Management and the Board
will continue to evaluate the Company's business strategy, including
cost structure, needed capital and capital infrastructure investments.

CVD's significant investment in the Materials facility will transform
the Company over the long term: 1) CVD holds the proprietary knowledge
and has the capability to build the production systems required to meet
demand and 2) CVD possesses the intimate knowledge necessary to operate
the systems in a cost-effective manner, providing a significant
operational and financial competitive advantage to take the Company to
the next level. Execution of this growth strategy should provide an
additional, diverse and stable revenue stream that should significantly
improve growth and profitability over the long-term.

The Company will hold a conference call to discuss its results today at
4:30 pm (Eastern Time). To participate in the live conference call,
