AeroVironment, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2017 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

 

MONROVIA, Calif., June 27, 2017

— AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter ended April 30, 2017.

 

“Through the successful execution of our strategic plan, AeroVironment achieved record performance in our fourth quarter, with revenue of $125 million and fully diluted earnings per share of $1.30,” said Wahid Nawabi, AeroVironment president and chief executive officer.  “International demand for our Family of small unmanned aircraft systems and domestic demand for our Family of Tactical Missile Systems drove full year revenue to $264.9 million, within our guidance range, and fully diluted earnings per share to $0.54, significantly above guidance and 38 percent higher than last year.  Our team executed our fiscal 2017 plan effectively, growing year-end funded backlog by 19 percent over the previous year to $78 million, while creating value for our customers, employees and stockholders and positioning AeroVironment for long-term growth.”

 

 

FISCAL 2017 FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

 

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $125.4 million, an increase of 48% from fourth quarter fiscal 2016 revenue of $84.8 million. The increase in revenue resulted from an increase in sales in our Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) segment of $39.8 million and an increase in sales in our Efficient Energy Systems (EES) segment of $0.8 million.

 

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $58.7 million, an increase from fourth quarter fiscal 2016 gross margin of $37.9 million. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in product margin of $26.5 million, partially offset by a decrease in service margin of $5.8 million. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin increased to 47% from 45%. The increase in gross margin percentage was primarily due to an increase in the proportion of product sales to total revenue.

 

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $34.0 million compared to fourth quarter fiscal 2016 income from operations of $6.8 million. The increase in the year over year income from operations was primarily a result of an increase in gross margin of $20.7 million and a decrease in research and development (R&D) expense of $6.4 million.

 

Other income, net, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.0 million compared to other income, net of $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. 

 

Provision for income taxes for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $4.6 million compared to provision for income taxes of $1.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in provision for income taxes was primarily due to an increase in income before taxes.

 

Net income attributable to AeroVironment for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $30.5 million compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 of $5.4 million.

 

Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.30 compared to earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 of $0.23.
