  • First quarter 2020 revenue was $40,205,000 compared to $42,225,000 in 2019. 2020 revenue decreased by $2,020,000 as a result of lower deliveries caused by lower customer requirements, the novel Coronavirus ("COVID-19"), and 737 MAX grounding.

This was mainly due to improvement in operational performance and consolidation of costs.

  • First quarter 2020 foreign exchange loss was $2,858,000 (March 31, 2019: $430,000 gain). The Canadian dollar significantly weakened against the US dollar resulting in a loss predominately from the translation of the Company's US dollar denominated Bank indebtedness and Term debt.

  • 2020 cash flows used in operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital was $2,540,000 (March 31, 2019: cash inflow of $12,998,000). 2020 cash flows used in operating activities worsened by $1,107,000 relative to 2019, after the positive net cash settlement in 2019 of $14,431,000 (USD$10,810,000).

  • On March 2, 2020, the Company entered into an amendment to the standby credit facility ("2019 Panta Loan") with Panta Canada B.V. ("Panta") securing and drawing an additional $2,686,000 (USD$2,000,000).

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter-End

The loan has a term of 2 years.

In addition, 2019 benefitted from a net settlement gain of $19,744,000.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, cash flows from operating activities, excluding the impact of changes in non-cash working capital, utilized $2,540,000 of cash as compared with $12,998,000 of cash provided during the quarter ended March 31, 2019.
