SIMI VALLEY, Calif. –

AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended July 27, 2019.

  • Revenue of $86.9 million, up 11 percent year-over-year
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.71 down $0.14 year-over-year; non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.74, up $0.15 year-over-year
  • Funded backlog of $165.2 million, an increase of five percent year-over-year

“Our team delivered outstanding first quarter results of $87 million in revenue, $0.71 and $0.74 in GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, respectively, and funded backlog of $165 million,” said Wahid Nawabi, AeroVironment president and chief executive officer. “Strong performance globally in our small unmanned aircraft systems product line reflects our continued leadership in this category, which will benefit further from our newly acquired VAPOR unmanned helicopter solutions. We now have visibility into the timing of U.S. Army orders for our Switchblade tactical missile systems, and we are making great progress in our HAPS program, with ground testing underway and flight testing about to begin. Across our business, we are executing our plans and delivering results that support our current year guidance and long-term value creation objectives.”

FISCAL 2020 FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $86.9 million, an increase of 11% from first quarter fiscal 2019 revenue of $78.0 million. The increase in revenue was due to an increase in product sales of $10.5 million, partially offset by a decrease in service revenue of $1.7 million.

Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $41.3 million, an increase of 27% from first quarter fiscal 2019 gross margin of $32.6 million. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in product margin of $9.9 million, partially offset by a decrease in service margin of $1.2 million. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin increased to 47% from 42%. The increase in gross margin percentage was primarily due to the increase in sales volume and an increase in the proportion of product revenue to total revenue.

Income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $18.9 million, an increase of 33% from first quarter fiscal 2019 income from continuing operations of $14.2 million. The increase in income from continuing operations was primarily a result of an increase in gross margin of $8.7 million, partially offset by an increase in research and development expense of $2.3 million and an increase in selling, general and administrative expense of $1.7 million.

Other income, net for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1.7 million compared to other income, net of $9.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in other income, net was primarily due to a one-time gain from a litigation settlement during the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Provision for income taxes for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was a $2.1 million compared to $2.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in provision for income taxes was primarily due to a decrease in income before income taxes.

Equity method investment loss, net of tax for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1.3 million compared to $0.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The equity method loss is associated with our investment in the HAPSMobile Inc. joint venture formed in December 2017.

Net income attributable to AeroVironment for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $17.1 million, a decrease from first quarter fiscal 2019 net income attributable to AeroVironment of $27.3 million. The first quarter of fiscal 2019 included a one-time gain from a litigation settlement.

Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $0.71 compared to earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for the first quarter fiscal 2019 of $0.85. The first quarter of fiscal 2019 included a one-time gain from a litigation settlement of $0.26.

Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $0.74 for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 of $0.59.

BACKLOG

As of July 27, 2019, funded backlog (remaining performance obligations under firm orders for which funding is currently appropriated to us under a customer contract) was $165.2 million compared to $157.0 million as of July 28, 2018.

FISCAL 2020 — OUTLOOK FOR THE FULL YEAR

For fiscal 2020, the Company continues to expect to generate between $350 million and $370 million in revenue and between $1.35 and $1.55 in earnings per diluted share. This financial guidance assumes approximately 5% ownership of the HAPSMobile joint venture and includes the expected losses of Pulse Aerospace, which the Company acquired on June 10, 2019. The Company continues to expect non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, which excludes acquisition related expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets to be between $1.47 and $1.67.

The foregoing estimates are forward looking and reflect management's view of current and future market conditions, including certain assumptions with respect to our ability to obtain and retain government contracts, changes in the timing and/or amount of government spending, changes in the demand for our products and services, activities of competitors, changes in the regulatory environment, and general economic and business conditions in the United States and elsewhere in the world. Investors are reminded that actual results may differ materially from these estimates.
