Business Wire

EXTON, Pa. -- April 24, 2013

Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its
financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, ended March 31, 2013.

For the second quarter of 2013, the Company reported revenue of $8.2 million,
a 21 percent increase compared to the second quarter fiscal 2012 revenue of
$6.8 million. The Company reported second quarter 2013 net income of $1.1
million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $289,000, or
$0.02 per diluted share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions
& Support, Inc. (“ISSC”) said, “In the second quarter, we achieved our
strategic objectives, profitably growing the business and signing new
contracts that should provide a solid foundation on which to build over the
next several years. During the first half of this year, we have been awarded
more than $85 million in new orders, highlighted by the contract to upgrade
Delta’s MD 88 and MD 90 fleet. This contract not only adds substantially to
our backlog, but also is another in a series of market validations of our
growing portfolio of advanced technologies, in this case, our Next Generation
Flight Management System. By focusing on developing new products, we can offer
a compelling value proposition to our customers and capitalize on the market’s
increasing emphasis on price-for-performance. With other new products in
development, we will integrate a number of systems in the cockpit for both
retrofit and OEM markets. We believe that our strategy to invest a substantial
portion of our resources in research and development will create value for
shareholders by growing revenues, profits, and cash flows over the next
several years.”

At March 31, 2013, the Company had $16.3 million of cash on hand and no debt.
The cash position is net of approximately $25 million paid to shareholders as
a special dividend in December 2012.

Six Months Revenues up 28%

Revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2013 were $14.8 million, compared
to $11.5 million for the six months ended March 31, 2012. Net income for the
six months ended March 31, 2013 was $1.4 million, or $0.09 per diluted share,
compared to a net loss of $54,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the first
half of last fiscal year.

Second Quarter orders of $69 million increase backlog to over $90 million

Orders for the second quarter were $69 million, including the $62 million
Delta contract, increasing backlog at March 31, 2013 to over $90 million from
$29 million at December 31, 2012. Production deliveries on the Delta contract
are expected to begin in mid 2014 and to extend over several years. Backlog
excludes potential future sole-source production orders from products
currently in development under the Company’s development contracts, including
two new general aviation aircraft, one of which is the previously announced
Eclipse 550, on which orders are expected to extend over the next decade.

Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “This was a strong quarter,
highlighted by the award of the contract to upgrade Delta’s MD88/90 fleet.
With this contract, our advanced Flight Management System and Global
Positioning System Receivers have now been selected in all three market
segments: the B-737, MD88/90 in the air transport market, the C-130 and L-100
in the military market, and the Eclipse E500 and E550 in the general aviation
market. Our flight management systems are among the industry’s most advanced
aircraft performance and navigation solutions, and provide cost-effective,
state-of-the-art technology, which enables legacy avionics platforms to be
upgraded with the capabilities, efficiency, and performance similar to the
latest production aircraft, including offering valuable NextGen

He continued, “These platforms are extremely versatile, and provide a strong
foundation to add additional aircraft types in each of our markets,
substantially increasing our addressable market. Continued economic
uncertainty has placed a premium on products that provide operators the best
price-to-performance value. For over 25 years, IS&S has built its reputation
as an industry leader with dependable, high-quality products that deliver high
performance at a much lower cost than our competitors’ offerings. We are very
pleased that this unwavering commitment is getting increased market

Business Outlook

Mr. Hedrick concluded, “For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013, we
expect revenues to increase approximately 30% compared to fiscal 2012.
Continued investment in product development to support our double digit growth
will limit earnings from these increased revenues. Revenues and earnings from
the production phases of several of these development efforts, including the
Delta Airlines MD88/90 order, will begin in fiscal 2014. We estimate that
earnings per share for fiscal 2013 will be in the range of $0.18 to $0.20.
This estimate compares to earnings per share for fiscal 2012 of $0.03 plus a
non-recurring benefit of $0.15 related to a tax valuation reserve adjustment.”
