EXTON, Pa. -- April 23, 2014

Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) today announced its
financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, ended March 31, 2014.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company reported sales of $12.5
million, a 52 percent increase compared to sales of $8.2 million for the
second quarter of fiscal 2013. The Company reported second quarter 2014 net
income of $0.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to second quarter
2013 net income of $1.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

Geoffrey Hedrick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Solutions
& Support, Inc. (“ISSC”) said, “Sales, margins and profits continue to be
consistent with our goals for fiscal 2014. We are pleased with the growth of
our production sales, which are generating gross margins similar to our
historical experience of approximately 50%.” Quarterly engineering sales were
a record $4.4 million.

At March 31, 2014, the Company had $15.3 million of cash on hand and remained
debt-free. Cash used in operating activities for the quarter was $585,000
compared to cash used of $222,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Net orders for the quarter were $6.7 million, and backlog at March 31, 2014
was $80.9 million. The backlog includes a large contract with Delta Airlines,
on which the Company anticipates beginning initial production deliveries this
fiscal year.  Backlog excludes potential future sole-source production orders
from products in development under the Company’s engineering development
contracts, including the Eclipse 550, the Pilatus PC-24, and the KC-46A, all
of which the Company expects to remain in production for a decade following
completion of their development phases. The Company expects that these
sole-source contracts will add to production sales already in backlog.

Six Months Results

Total sales for the six months ended March 31, 2014 were $23.6 million, up 59
percent year over year. Production sales for the six months ended March 31,
2014 were $15.8 million, up 36% from the comparable prior year period. Net
income for the six months ended March 31, 2014 was $1.8 million, up 29%
compared to $1.4 million year over year. Earnings per share for the six months
ended March 31, 2014 were $0.10 per diluted share, up 11%, compared to $0.09
per diluted share for the first half of the last fiscal year.

Shahram Askarpour, President of ISSC, commented, “We are pleased with our
overall performance and with the growth of our production volumes as certain
engineering development programs begin to transition to production. The
Eclipse program is now in production, and we expect the Delta program to enter
production later this year. In anticipation of the sales growth, we have
strengthened our organization to complete our engineering development program
milestones and to manage the growth in production.”

Mr. Hedrick concluded, "The increase in production volumes of existing
products and the progress in the development of new products are evidence of
the success of our price-for-performance strategy. Consequently, we intend to
continue engineering investments, which totaled in excess of 35% of sales in
the first six months of this fiscal year, so that we can offer a growing
portfolio of both OEM and retrofit flight management systems, GPS sensors, and
other NextGen air traffic control products to the commercial air transport,
military and general aviation markets."

Business Outlook

For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014, IS&S expects to increase sales,
operating income, and net income compared to fiscal 2013 and to report its
sixth consecutive profitable year, characterized by growing production volume
resulting from its engineering investments. The Company will provide
additional commentary during its earnings conference call.
