CVD Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – March 30, 2017 – CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced its fourth quarter and full year 2016 financial results.

Revenue for the fourth quarter increased 50.0% to $7.3 million from $4.8 million in the third quarter, and decreased from $8.2 million in the same period last year. For the full year, revenue decreased 46.2% to $21.0 million compared to $39.0 million in 2015.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $770,000 or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($85,000) or ($0.01) per diluted share in the prior quarter, and net income of $391,000 or $0.06 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2015. Net loss for the full year was ($149,000) or ($0.02) per diluted share compared to net income of $3.2 million or $0.51 per diluted share in 2015.

The 2016 fiscal year was heavily impacted by the delays encountered as a result of the protracted negotiations in securing a very significant order with a major aviation component supplier. This order was not finalized until June 22, 2016. The Company received orders totaling $42.6 million during the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, an increase of $18.6 million or 77.5% greater than the $24.0 million received in the prior year. This brought backlog to $27.8 million as of December 31, 2016 compared to $6.1 million as of December 31, 2015, an increase of 356%.

In December, through its wholly owned subsidiary, CVD Materials Corporation, the Company purchased certain assets (including all of the IP) formerly owned by Tantaline A/S of Nordborg, Denmark. This innovative tantalum chemical vapor technology, called Tantaline® treatment, is used to create a tantalum surface alloy on parts including valves, fittings, and process chambers that are prone to corrosion in harsh environments. These parts are used across a broad range of industries including chemical processing, oil & gas, mining, pharmaceutical, and medical.

“2016 set the stage for future growth and expansion of CVD. Although revenues declined in 2016, solid execution of our growth strategy resulted in a strong finish to the year,” said Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the second half of the year, we began to deliver on our backlog and rebuild the pipeline for our core business. With the addition of our new Tantaline® corrosion resistance product line, we have taken the first step into the materials arena by using our equipment and process capability to scale a difficult process to meet market demand. We plan to expand the applications of this technology while we pursue additional material coating opportunities that build on our equipment and process solution capabilities. Entering 2017, we are poised for growth with a strong backlog and a growing customer base.”
