GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Aerospace & Defense » Aerospace & Defense
Compare:BA, ERJ, EADSY, RYCEY, HON » details
CPI Aerostructures Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York in January 1980 under the name Composite Products International, Inc. The Company changed its name to Consortium of Precision Industries, Inc. in April 1989 and to CPI Aerostructures, Inc. in July 1992. The Company is engaged in the contract production of structural aircraft parts principally for the U.S. Air Force and other branches of the U.S. armed forces, either as a prime contractor or as a subcontractor to other defense prime contractors. It also acts as a subcontractor to prime aircraft manufacturers in the production of commercial aircraft parts. The Company's strategy for growth has been focused primarily as a subcontractor for defense prime contractors. Due to its success as a subcontractor to defense prime contractors it has pursued opportunities to increase its commercial subcontracting business. As a subcontractor to defense prime contractors such as Northrop Grumman Corporation ('NGC'), The Boeing Company ('Boeing'), Lockheed Martin Corporation ('Lockheed'), Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation ('Sikorsky') and Bell Helicopter, it deliver various pods, and modular and structural assemblies for military aircraft such as the E-2D 'Hawkeye' surveillance aircraft, UH-60 'Black Hawk' helicopter, the A-10 'Thunderbolt' attack jet, the MH-60S mine counter measure helicopter and the C-5A 'Galaxy' cargo jet. 77%, 73% and 43% of its revenue in 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively, was generated by subcontracts with defense prime contractors. The Company also operates as a subcontractor to prime contractors, including Sikorsky and Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. ('Spirit'), in the production of commercial aircraft parts. For Spirit it delivers leading edges for the G650 executive jet. For Sikorsky, it delivers various kits and assemblies for the S-92 civilian helicopter. 14%, 17% and 29% of its revenue in 2011, 2010 and 2009 respectively, was generated by commercial contract sales. It faces competition from prime contractors engaged in the supply of aircraft parts and assemblies to the military, including NGC, Lockheed, Boeing, The Nordam Group and Triumph. The company is subject to regulations administered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, various state agencies and county and local authorities acting in cooperation with federal and state authorities.
