CVD achieved record revenue of $10.4 million for the current quarter ending June 30, 2015 and a record $20.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Net earnings for the current three and six month periods were $1.3 million and $2.0 million respectively, compared to net earnings of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and a net loss of $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014.  As a result, the Company reported earnings of $0.22 per share basic and $0.21 per share diluted for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and $0.32 per share basic and diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2015. The Company reported earnings of $0.03 per share basic and diluted for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and a net loss of ($0.01) per share basic and diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

The Company increased its backlog to $19.3 million at June 30, 2015, an increase of 32.8% compared to the $14.5 million backlog at June 30, 2014 and an increase of 16.4% compared to the backlog of $16.6 at March 31, 2015. The timing of the receipt of an order is subject to various factors, some of which are not in our control. As a result, our order levels from period to period, tend to be uneven. Order levels attained in one three month period are not necessarily indicative of order levels that will be attained in future periods. Although timing for completion of backlog varies depending on the product mix and can be as long as two years, the Company believes a significant portion of its current backlog will be completed within the next twelve months.

The Company continues to maintain a strong cash position and a healthy working capital ratio.

Leonard Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer stated:  “A significant portion of our orders this quarter came from existing customers. As their businesses expand, they have relied on CVD to supply additional production equipment to expand their capacity.  We believe business from these customers will continue to expand over the next few years.

“As new technologies develop our talents are used to design and manufacture the state of the art process equipment needed to prove the concepts. We continue to work with our customers from the research state, all the way to launching the process in production, and into the capacity ramp to full production.

“In doing this, we have made significant advances in custom chemical deposition equipment for medical, aerospace, and other applications, as well as nanomaterials. As we continue to develop equipment for our customers while doing their research, these developments will continue to build our technology base and continue to fuel our growth.”
