Second Quarter 2023 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)
Consolidated sales were up $45.3 million, or 35.1%, from the second quarter of 2022, and up 11.4% sequentially. Aerospace sales increased $49.1 million over the comparator quarter, or 44.9%, driven primarily by higher sales to the commercial transport market. Test Systems sales decreased $3.8 million on lower defense revenue.
Consolidated operating income was $2.4 million, an improvement over an operating loss of $8.4 million in the prior-year period. The current period operating income improvement was driven by the contribution margin from the increased sales. The current period was impacted by litigation-related legal expenses of $4.9 million partially offset by a reduction in legal reserves of $1.3 million.
Interest expense was $5.9 million in the current period, compared with $1.7 million in the prior-year period, primarily driven by higher interest rates on the Company’s new credit facilities. Interest expense includes approximately $0.7 million of non-cash amortization of capitalized financing-related fees.
Income tax expense was $8.1 million in the current period, primarily due to a valuation allowance applied against the deferred tax asset associated with research and development costs that are required to be capitalized for tax purposes.
Consolidated net loss was $12.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared with net loss of $11.0 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the prior year.
Consolidated adjusted EBITDA was $15.8 million, or 9.1% of consolidated sales, compared with an adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million, or 1.6% of consolidated sales, in the prior-year period.
Bookings were $207.1 million in the quarter resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.19:1. The quarter closed with a record backlog of $611.1 million. Approximately $502.0 million of backlog is expected to ship over the next twelve months.

Aerospace Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)
Aerospace Second Quarter 2023 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)
Aerospace segment sales increased $49.1 million, or 44.9%, to $158.4 million, and up 16.8% sequentially. The increase was driven by a 61.9% increase, or $42.8 million, in commercial transport sales. Sales to this market were $112.1 million, or 64.3% of consolidated sales in the quarter, compared with $69.2 million, or 53.6% of consolidated sales in the second quarter of 2022. Improving global airline travel driving higher fleet utilization and increased production rates resulted in increased demand.
General Aviation sales increased $6.9 million, or 38.0%, to $25.0 million.
Aerospace segment operating profit improved to $13.7 million, or 8.7% of sales, compared with operating loss of $3.3 million in the same period last year. The improved operating profit was driven by higher volume primarily in the commercial transport market.
Aerospace bookings were $188.8 million for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.19:1. Backlog for the Aerospace segment was a record $522.6 million at quarter end.
Mr. Gundermann commented, “The recovery in our Aerospace segment over the last four quarters has been dramatic, with revenue increasing from $112 million per quarter to $158 million. Bookings during that period have totaled $656 million with a book-to-bill of 1.21:1, indicating strong demand for our products and opportunity for further growth. The increase in global passenger travel is driving the recovery, resulting in higher production rates and retrofit activity across all portions of the industry.”
Test Systems Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)
Test Systems Second Quarter 2023 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)
Test Systems segment sales were $16.1 million, down $3.8 million primarily as a result of lower defense revenue.
Test Systems segment operating loss was $6.1 million compared with nearly break-even in the second quarter of 2022. Test Systems operating loss for the current period was negatively affected by mix, under absorption of fixed costs due to volume and $2.2 million in increased litigation-related legal expenses.
Shortly after the first quarter ended, the Test Systems segment implemented restructuring initiatives to align the workforce and management structure with near-term revenue expectations and operational needs. These initiatives are expected to provide savings of $4 million to $5 million annually, beginning with the third quarter.
Bookings for the Test Systems segment in the quarter were $18.3 million and included the initial $9.6 million production order for the Handheld Radio Test Sets (“HHRTS”) Program for the U.S. Marine Corps. Book-to-bill ratio was 1.14:1 for the quarter. Backlog was $88.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2023 compared with backlog of $83.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2022.
In April 2023, Astronics announced that the Test business had been awarded a contract award to produce portable radio test equipment for the U.S. Marine Corps’ HHRTS Program. This program is expected to generate revenue of approximately $40 million over a five-year period.

Mr. Gundermann commented, “Our Test business had a difficult quarter, with lower-than-expected revenue and high legal costs. We expect significant improvement in the coming quarters as our radio test programs advance, setting up 2024 as a much better year.”
Liquidity and Financing
Cash on hand at the end of the quarter was $4.3 million. Capital expenditures in the quarter were $2.2 million. Net debt was $178.7 million.
Cash used for operations was $2.0 million in second quarter of 2023, improving from cash used of $19.2 million in the prior quarter. Astronics expects to be cash flow positive for the remainder of 2023. During the quarter, higher inventory and accounts receivable were partially offset by increased accounts payable and accrued expenses.
David Burney, the Company’s CFO, said, “Our liquidity during the second quarter was tighter than expected as inventory levels continued to increase. We are challenged by elevated inventory levels as we forecast strong sales growth but struggle with the inefficiencies in the supply chain. We expect inventory levels to begin to decline and liquidity to improve as we move through the second half of the year.”
2023 Outlook
Revenue guidance for 2023 is unchanged at $640 million to $680 million with expectations of achieving the higher end of the range. Planned capital expenditures for 2023 are expected to be in the range of $7 million to $12 million.
Peter Gundermann commented, “We are pleased with the progress we made in the first half of 2023 and are confident about the second half as well. Demand remains strong, and our supply chain, though imperfect, continues to improve. We feel we have line of sight to the high end of our range based on existing backlog and the established momentum of our revenue ramp. Sales in the first half of the year were $331 million and we began the second half of 2023 with $330 million of scheduled backlog. With that, we expect our typical additional drop-in and pull-in orders could deliver revenue at the high end of our guidance. There’s modest risk with the supply chain and timing of major Test segment contract awards. We expect margins to continue to improve with expected increases in volume, lower cost inputs, pricing improvements, and the effects of restructuring activities accomplished in the second quarter. We also expect our year end to be busy with shipments and continued demand strength, setting up for another strong year of improvement in 2024.”

Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Performance Measures
In addition to reporting net income, a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle (“GAAP”) measure, we present Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation expense, goodwill, intangible and long-lived asset impairment charges, equity investment income or loss, legal reserves, settlements and recoveries, restructuring charges, gains or losses associated with the sale of businesses and grant benefits recorded related to the AMJP program), which is a non-GAAP measure. The Company’s management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare the performance of its core operations from period to period by removing the impact of the capital structure (interest), tangible and intangible asset base (depreciation and amortization), taxes, equity-based compensation expense, goodwill, intangible and long-lived asset impairment charges, equity investment income or loss, legal reserves, settlements and recoveries, litigation-related expenses, restructuring charges, gains or losses associated with the sale of businesses and grant benefits recorded related to the AMJP program, which is not commensurate with the core activities of the reporting period in which it is included. As such, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance when evaluating its business and as a basis for planning and forecasting. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is not calculated through the application of GAAP. As such, it should not be considered as a substitute for the GAAP measure of net income and, therefore, should not be used in isolation of, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.
