CVD Reports 2018 Results


CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – April 01, 2019 - CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems and materials, today announced financial results for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2018.


CVD annual revenue was $24.3 million in 2018 as compared to $41.1 million in 2017, a decrease of $16.8 million or 40.8%. Fourth quarter revenue was $4.7 million in 2018 as compared to $9.8 million in 2017, a decrease of $5.1 million or 51.9%.


Net loss for the year totaled $5.2 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $5.3 million or $.82 per diluted share in the prior year. Fourth quarter 2018 net loss was $1.9 million, or $.29 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1.6 million, or $.24 diluted share in the prior year period.


While 2018 year-end backlog of approximately $3 million is down from year-end 2017, the Company has received new orders in excess of $6 million in the first quarter of 2019. As a result of the time required to complete these orders, we anticipate revenue in the first two quarters of 2019 may approximate the revenue in the last two quarters of 2018 and therefore the Company expects to report operating losses in the first two quarters of 2019. The Company’s return to profitability will be dependent upon, among other things, the receipt of new equipment orders and the ramp up of the materials business, as well as managing its planned expenditures and operating expenses, including its ability to sublet a portion of the new facility.


“2018 was a transitional year for CVD. After completing a large contract with a major customer, the Company has accelerated its focus on the materials business. During 2018, the Company invested $2.5 million in building improvements and machinery related to CVD Materials and incurred additional expenses in connection with our recently acquired facility in Central Islip, New York. We anticipate operations at the new facility will commence at the end of the second quarter or during the third quarter of 2019. During 2019, we will continue to invest in further building improvements and machinery to accelerate and diversify our business into the materials market. With the building and machinery components nearing completion, this will allow us to enhance our marketing efforts by showcasing our operations with new and existing customers. The expanded materials operations this year will enhance our capabilities in providing i) corrosion resistant coatings through our Tantaline® subsidiary for medical, pharma, oil and gas applications, ii) sensors through our MesoScribe™ subsidiary for aerospace and turbine applications, and iii) through our CVD Materials subsidiary for carbon composite materials for medical applications, substrate materials for the electronics industry and further expansion into other coatings for aerospace, medical, and industrial applications,” said Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer.


The Company will hold a conference call to discuss its results today at 4:30 pm (Eastern Time).
