SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or Exchange Act.  Forward-looking statements are predictive in nature and can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and generally include words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar expressions. Certain of the matters discussed herein concerning, among other items, our operations, cash flows, financial position and economic performance including, in particular, future sales, product demand, competition and the effect of economic conditions, include forward-looking statements.
 
Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, including projections of orders, sales, operating margins, earnings, cash flow, research and development costs, working capital, capital expenditures, distribution channels, profitability, new products, adequacy of funds from operations, and general economic conditions, these statements and other projections contained herein expressing opinions about future outcomes and non-historical information, are subject to uncertainties and, therefore, there is no assurance that the outcomes expressed in these statements will be achieved.  Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from the expectations expressed in forward-looking statements contained herein. Given these uncertainties, you should not place any reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date hereof. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and elsewhere in this report and the risks discussed in our other filings with the SEC.
 
We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under the securities laws of the United States.

The Company has occasionally maintained balances in its bank accounts that were in excess of the FDIC limit.  The Company has not experienced any losses on these accounts.

AIM has several sole-source suppliers of various parts that are used in one or more of its products. If any of these sole source suppliers were to go out of business or be unable to provide it parts for any reason, AIM would be required to develop new suppliers or to re-engineer its products, or both, which could delay shipment of products and have a material adverse effect on its operating results.

Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing the net income applicable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. Potentially dilutive shares, using the treasury stock method, are included in the diluted per-share calculation for all periods when the effect of their inclusion is dilutive.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB ASC 718, "Compensation – Stock Compensation." Under the fair value recognition provision of the ASC, stock-based compensation cost is estimated at the grant date based on the fair value of the award. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options and warrants granted using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model. Stock-based compensation amounted to $10,000 and $9,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and $25,000 and $15,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 respectively, and was included in operating expenses on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income.
 
Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the acquisition cost of businesses over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired. The goodwill amount of $4,620,000 relates to the acquisition of WMI ($291,000), NTW ($162,000), Woodbine ($2,402,000), Eur-Pac ($1,659,000) and ECC ($106,000). Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested at least annually for impairment, or if circumstances occur that more likely than not will reduce the fair value of the reporting unit below its carrying amount.  

The Company has determined that there has been no impairment of goodwill at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Effective January 1, 2014, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2013-11, “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists” (“ASU 2013-11”).  ASU 2013-11 is expected to reduce diversity in practice by providing guidance on the presentation of unrecognized tax benefits and will better reflect the manner in which an entity would settle at the reporting date any additional income taxes that would result from the disallowance of a tax position when net operating loss carryforwards, similar tax losses, or tax credit carryforwards exist. This guidance is effective prospectively for the Company for annual and interim periods beginning January 1, 2014.  The adoption of ASU 2013-11 did not have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
 
AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASU 2014-09”).  The amendments in ASU 2014-09 affect any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of nonfinancial assets unless those contracts are within the scope of other standards (e.g., insurance contracts or lease contracts). This ASU will supersede the revenue recognition requirements in ASC 605, “Revenue Recognition” and most industry-specific guidance and creates ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.”
 
The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. To achieve that core principle, an entity should apply the following steps:
 
Step 1: Identify the contract(s) with a customer.
Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract.
Step 3: Determine the transaction price.
Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract.
Step 5: Recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation.
 
ASU 2014-09 is effective for public entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period.  The Company is currently evaluating the effects of the adoption of ASU 2014-09 on its consolidated financial statements.

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-12, “Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period” (“ASU No. 2014-12”).  ASU No. 2014-12 requires that a performance target that affects vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period be treated as a performance condition. An entity should recognize compensation cost in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the periods for which the requisite service has already been rendered. If the performance target becomes probable of being achieved before the end of requisite service period, the remaining unrecognized compensation cost should be recognized prospectively over the remaining requisite service period. The total amount of compensation cost recognized during and after the requisite service period should reflect the number of awards that are expected to vest and should be adjusted to reflect those awards that ultimately vest. ASU 2014-12 becomes effective for interim and annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted.  The adoption of ASU 2014-12 is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

The Company does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.

The Company has a loan facility with PNC (the “Loan Facility”) secured by substantially all of its assets.

On April 1, 2014, the Loan Facility was amended and the Company paid a loan amendment fee of $15,000. These amendments added Woodbine as a borrower on the Loan Facility and increased the maximum borrowings to $22,676,000 less repayments of Term Loan A made on or after the closing date. The maximum borrowings consisted of the following:

(i)  
a $20,000,000 revolving loan (includes inventory sub-limit of $12,500,000) and
(ii)  
$2,676,000 for Term Loan A.
 
 
AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
On June 9, 2014, the Loan Facility was further amended. These amendments added Eur-Pac as a borrower on the Loan Facility and increased the maximum borrowings to $25,613,000 less repayments of Term Loan A made on or after the closing date. The maximum borrowings consisted of the following:

(i)  
a $23,000,000 revolving loan (includes inventory sub-limit of $15,000,000) and
(ii)  
$2,613,000 for Term Loan A.

On October 1, 2014, the Loan Facility was again amended coincident with the acquisition of AMK (see Note 2). This amendment added AMK as a borrower on the Loan Facility and increased the maximum borrowings to $29,112,000 less repayments of Term Loan A made on or after the closing date. The amendment also allowed for a Seller Mortgage and Note in the amount of $2,500,000, granted by AMK and Air Group in favor of the former owner of AMK. The maximum borrowings consist of the following:

(i)  
a $23,000,000 revolving loan (includes inventory sub-limit of $15,000,000);
(ii)  
$2,613,000 term loan, less repayments  for Term Loan A and
(iii)  
a new term loan of $3,500,000 (“Term Loan B”).

Under the terms of the Loan Facility the revolving credit note bears interest at (a) the sum of the Alternate Base Rate plus three quarters of one percent (0.75%) with respect to Domestic Rate Loans and (b) the sum of the Eurodollar Rate plus two and one half of one percent (2.50%) with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans.   The revolving credit note had an interest rate of 4.0 % per annum at both September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, and an outstanding balance of $15,232,000 and $12,029,000, respectively. The maturity date of the revolving credit note is November 30, 2016.

Each day, the Company's cash collections are swept directly by the bank to reduce the revolving loan and the Company then borrows according to a borrowing base. As such, the Company generally has no cash on hand. Because the revolving loan contains a subjective acceleration clause which could permit PNC to require repayment prior to maturity, the loans are classified with the current portion of notes and
capital lease obligations.

Under the terms of the Loan Facility prior to the amendment discussed below, the maturity date of Term Loan A was the first business day (as defined) of January 2015. Term Loan A bore interest equal to (a) the sum of the Alternate Base Rate plus one and three quarters of one percent (1.75%) with respect to Domestic Rate Loans or (b) the sum of the Eurodollar Rate plus three percent (3.00%) with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans. Repayment under Term Loan A consisted of 19 consecutive monthly principal installments, the first 18 of which were $150,000 commencing on the first business day of July 2013, with the 19th and final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest payable on the first business day of January 2015.

On April 1, 2014, the Company borrowed an additional $1,328,000.  The repayment of Term Loan A was amended on that date to thirty-two consecutive monthly principal installments, the first thirty-one of which shall be in the amount of $31,859 commencing on the first business day of May 2014, and continuing on the first business day of each month thereafter, with a thirty-second and final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest on the last business day of November 2016. Term Loan A bears interest equal to (a) the sum of the Alternate Base Rate plus one and three quarters of one percent (1.75%) with respect to Domestic Rate Loans or (b) the sum of the Eurodollar Rate plus three percent (3.00%) with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the balance due under Term Loan A was $2,517,000 and $1,948,000, respectively.
 
To the extent that the Company disposes of collateral used to secure the Loan Facility, other than inventory, the Company must promptly repay the draws on the credit facility in an amount equal to the net proceeds of such sale.
 
 
AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The terms of the Loan Facility require that, among other things, the Company maintain a specified Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio.  In addition, the Company is limited in the amount of Capital Expenditures it can make. The Company is also limited to the amount of Dividends it can pay its shareholders as defined in the Loan Facility.  As of both September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company was in compliance with all terms of the Loan Facility.

The Company's receivables are payable directly into a lockbox controlled by PNC (subject to the terms of the Loan Facility). PNC may use some elements of subjective business judgment in determining whether a material adverse change has occurred in the Company's condition, results of operations, assets, business, properties or prospects allowing it to demand repayment of the Loan Facility.

As of September 30, 2014 the future minimum principal payments for Term Loan A are as follows:

On October 1, 2014, the Company borrowed $3,500,000 under Term Loan B for the acquisition of AMK.  The repayment of Term Loan B consists of sixty consecutive monthly principal installments, the first fifty-nine of which shall be in the amount of $58,333 commencing on the first business day of December 2014, and continuing on the first business day of each month thereafter, with a sixtieth and final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest on the last business day of November 2019. Term Loan B bears interest at the same rate as Term Loan A. The first interest payment was on the first business day of November 2014.

Capital Leases Payable – Equipment

The Company is committed under several capital leases for manufacturing and computer equipment. All leases have bargain purchase options exercisable at the termination of each lease. Capital lease obligations totaled $1,539,000 and $1,787,000 as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, with various interest rates ranging from 7.0% to 9.5%.

In connection with the acquisition of WMI on August 24, 2007, the Company incurred a note payable (“Note”) to the former stockholders of WMI.   The obligation under the Note is subordinate to the Company’s indebtedness to PNC. As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the balance owed to the sellers of WMI is $218,000 and $732,000, respectively.

The Note and payment terms have been adjusted and/or amended several times.  On October 1, 2010, the Company entered into a letter agreement with the former stockholders of WMI making the new balance of the note $2,397,967.  Payments on the note began on October 1, 2010.  It was further agreed that payments would be made according to the following schedule: equal monthly installments of $40,000 on the first business day of each month until December 31, 2011, followed by equal monthly installments of $60,000 on the first business day of each month commencing on January 1, 2012 and continuing until the entire principal amount of the obligation is paid in full, which is estimated to be in January 2015.  Interest shall accrue at the rate of 7% per annum, and each payment will first apply to interest and then to principal.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the balance owed under the note was $218,000 and $732,000, respectively.

Interest expense related to the note payable to the former stockholders of WMI was $6,000 and $17,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and $27,000 and $61,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Junior Subordinated Notes

In 2008 and 2009, the Company sold in a series of private placements to accredited investors $5,990,000 of principal amount in Junior Subordinated Notes. The notes bear interest at the rate of 1% per month (or 12% per annum).
 
 
AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
In connection with the offering of the Company's Junior Subordinated Notes, the Company issued to Taglich Brothers, Inc. ("Taglich Brothers"), as placement agent, a Junior Subordinated Note in the principal amount of $510,000. The terms of the note issued to Taglich Brothers are identical to the notes. In connection with the amounts raised in 2009, the Company issued to Taglich Brothers a Junior Subordinated Note on the same terms as the Junior Subordinated Notes referred to above for commission of $44,500.

In conjunction with the Private Placement of our common stock to raise money for the NTW Acquisition, the Company solicited the holders of our Junior Subordinated Notes to convert their notes to Common Stock at a price of $6.00 per share. On June 29, 2012, the Company issued 867,461 shares of its Common Stock in exchange for approximately $5,204,000 of its Junior Subordinated Notes. On July 26, 2012, the Company repaid $115,000 of our Junior Subordinated Notes along with the accrued interest thereon of approximately $1,000.

On June 3, 2014, in conjunction with our Registered Direct Offering (see Note 8), the holders of our remaining Junior Subordinated Notes converted their notes to Common Stock at a price of $9.00 per share.  On the same date, the Company paid the remaining accrued interest of $1,000 that was due to the holders.

The balance owed on the Junior Subordinated Notes at September 30, 2014 was $0 and at December 31, 2013 amounted to $1,000,000.  Interest expense on the Junior Subordinated Notes amounted to $0 and $30,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively and $61,000 and $90,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The gross proceeds of the offering were $10,530,000 comprised of $9,530,000 in cash and $1,000,000 in the conversion of our Junior Subordinated Notes (see Note 7).  The Company paid to Taglich Brothers a commission of approximately $842,000 and warrants to purchase up to 46,800 shares of common stock at a per share price of $11.25. Additionally, the Company paid legal fees on behalf of Taglich Brothers in the amount of $75,000 and paid a qualified independent underwriter approximately $50,000 for their services.  The Company netted cash of approximately $8,562,000 from the Offering.  A portion of these funds were used to finance the acquisition of Eur-Pac Corporation (see Note 2).

On June 4, 2014, in connection with the acquisition of Eur-Pac, the Company issued 20,000 shares of its common stock to the former stockholders of Eur-Pac.

Derivative Liability

In connection with the issuances of equity instruments or debt, the Company may issue options or warrants to purchase common stock. In certain circumstances, these options or warrants may be classified as liabilities, rather than as equity. In addition, the equity instrument or debt may contain embedded derivative instruments, such as conversion options or listing requirements, which in certain circumstances may be required to be bifurcated from the associated host instrument and accounted for separately as a derivative liability instrument. The Company accounts for derivative liability instruments under the provisions of FASB ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging.”

Note 11. SEGMENT REPORTING

In accordance with FASB ASC 280, “Segment Reporting”, the Company discloses financial and descriptive information about its reportable operating segments. Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available and regularly evaluated by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

The Company is operating in four segments. AIM manufactures components and subassemblies for the defense and aerospace industry.  NTW manufactures aerospace components, principally landing gear for F-16 and F-18 fighter aircraft. WMI provides specialty welding services and metal fabrications to the defense and commercial aerospace industry and the results of Woodbine are included within the WMI segment beginning on April 1, 2014, the date it was acquired.  Eur-Pac’s primary business is “kitting” of supplies for all branches of the United States Defense Department including ordnance parts, hose assemblies, hydraulic, mechanical and electrical assemblies. The results of Eur-Pac are included from its date of acquisition. The results of ECC are included within Eur-Pac as of September 1, 2014, the date it was acquired. While each of these segments service the same industries and a similar customer base, we evaluate the performance of each segment separately in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing profitability.

Beginning on January 1, 2013, the Company began to allocate all of the corporate selling and general and administrative costs of AIRI to three of its subsidiaries. For both 2014 and 2013, these are allocated 50% to AIM and 25% to each of WMI and NTW.  There was no corporate allocation made to Eur-Pac during 2014.

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements and the notes to those statements included in this Form 10-Q. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should specifically consider the various risks identified in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, which was filed on March 25, 2014, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.
 
Business Overview
 
We are an aerospace company operating primarily in the defense industry, though the proportion of our business represented by the commercial sector is increasing.  We design and manufacture structural parts and assemblies that focus on flight safety, including landing gear, arresting gear, engine mounts, flight controls, Nacelle Struts, which transmit the thrust of a jet engine to the body of the aircraft, and other components. We also provide sheet metal fabrication of aerostructures, tube bending and welding services.  
 
As a result of recent acquisitions, we specialize in the production of electromechanical systems, harness and cable assemblies, electronic equipment and printed circuit boards, and the assembly of packages or “kits” containing supplies for all branches of the United States Defense Department, including ordnance parts, hose assemblies, hydraulic, mechanical and electrical assemblies.
 
Our products are currently deployed on a wide range of high profile military and commercial aircraft including Sikorsky's UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, Lockheed Martin's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Northrop Grumman's E2D Hawkeye, Pratt & Whitney’s Geared fan jet engine, the US Navy F-18 and USAF F-16 fighter aircraft, and in the commercial sector, Boeing's 777, Airbus' 380 commercial airliners, and other commercial airliners.
 
Since July 2013 we have acquired several businesses:
 
 
·
On July 1, 2013 we acquired the business and operations of Decimal Industries, Inc. (“Decimal”) in an asset acquisition.  These operations have been absorbed into Welding Metallurgy, Inc. (“WMI”).
 
 
·
On November 6, 2013, we acquired 100% of the stock of Miller Stuart Inc., (“MSI”). MSI continues to operate as an independent business unit and its results are reported in the WMI segment.
 
 
·
On April 1, 2014, we acquired 100% of the stock of Woodbine Products, Inc. ("WPI"). We are incorporating the operations of WPI into WMI.
 
 
·
On June 1, 2014, we acquired 100% of the stock of Eur-Pac Corporation (“EPC”) of Waterbury, Connecticut. For the immediate future EPC will continue to operate as an independent business unit.
 
 
·
On September 1, 2014 we acquired 100% of the stock of Electronic Connection Corporation (“ECC”) of Bloomfield, CT. We are now in the process of incorporating the operations of ECC into EPC.
 
 
·
On October 1, 2014 we acquired 100% of the stock of AMK Technical Services (“AMK”) of South Windsor; CT. AMK will be operated as an independent business unit.
 
During the third quarter of 2014, we had five operating subsidiaries – Air Industries Machining Corp. (“AIM”), WMI, Nassau Tool Works, Inc. (“NTW”), MSI and EPC, including ECC since September 1, 2014, which we divide into four operating segments.
 
AIM has manufactured components and subassemblies for the defense and commercial aerospace industry for over 40 years.  
 
WMI has provided specialty welding services and metal fabrications to the defense and commercial aerospace industry since 1979.  Decimal, now part of WMI, was founded in 1968 and its principal business is the fabrication of welded and brazed chassis structures housing electronics, radars and avionics  for the aerospace industry. WPI, now part of WMI, was founded in 1954 and its principal business is the fabrication of precision sheet metal assemblies for the aerospace industry.
 
The predecessor of our subsidiary, NTW was founded in 1959 and its principal business is the fabrication and assembly of  landing gear components and complete landing gear for fighter aircraft for the US and foreign governments.
 
 
MSI was founded in 1966 and is a manufacturer of aerospace components whose customers include major aircraft manufacturers and the US Military. MSI specializes in electromechanical systems, harness and cable assemblies, electronic equipment and printed circuit boards.
 
EPC was founded in 1947 and specializes in military packaging and supplies all branches of the United States Defense Department with ordnance parts and kits, hose assemblies, hydraulic, mechanical and electrical assemblies. ECC, now part of EPC, was founded in 1989 and specializes in wire harnesses and leads for the aerospace and other industries.
 
AMK Technical Services has been a provider of welding services  to the Aerospace industry since 1964. For more than ten years it was owned by Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC) and was part of what once was an aerospace group of companies owned by DMC.  With the divestiture of AMK, Dynamic Materials has exited the aerospace business. AMK’s business is concentrated with aircraft jet engine and ground turbine manufacturers. The acquisition of AMK by Air Industries is the first of what we hope to be a number of acquisitions in the engine segment of the aerospace industry.
 
The aerospace market is highly competitive in both the defense and commercial sectors and we face intense competition in all areas of our business.  Nearly all of our revenues are derived by producing products to customer specifications after being awarded a contract through a competitive bidding process.  As the commercial aerospace and defense industries continue to consolidate and major contractors seek to streamline supply chains by buying more complete sub-assemblies from fewer suppliers, we have sought to remain competitive not only by providing cost-effective world class service but also by increasing our ability to produce more complex and complete assemblies for our customers
 
Our ability to operate profitably is determined by our ability to win new contracts and renewals of existing contracts, and then fulfill these contracts on a timely basis at costs that enable us to generate a profit based upon the agreed upon contract price.  Winning a contract generally requires that we submit a bid containing a fixed price for the product or products covered by the contract for an agreed upon period of time.  Thus, when submitting bids, we are required to estimate our future costs of production and, since we often rely upon subcontractors, the prices we can obtain from our subcontractors.
 
While our revenues are largely determined by the number of contracts we are awarded, the volume of product delivered and price of product under each contract, our costs are determined by a number of factors.  The principal factors impacting our costs are the cost of materials and supplies, labor, financing and the efficiency at which we can produce our products.  The cost of materials used in the aerospace industry is highly volatile.  In addition, the market for the skilled labor we require to operate our plants is highly competitive.  The profit margin of the various products we sell varies based upon a number of factors, including the complexity of the product, the intensity of the competition for such product and, in some cases, the ability to deliver replacement parts on short notice.  Thus, in assessing our performance from one period to another, a reader must understand that changes in profit margin can be the result of shifts in the mix of products sold.
 
A very large percentage of the products we produce are used on military as opposed to civilian aircraft. These products can be replacement spare parts for aircraft already in the fleet of the armed services, or for the production of new aircraft. Reductions to the Defense Department budget have reduced the demand for both production and replacement spares. This has reduced our sales. The impact has been felt most severely at AIM and NTW and, to a lesser degree, at our other subsidiaries. In response to the reduction in military sales, we are focusing greater efforts on the civilian aircraft market.  We were awarded a multi-year contract by a leading aerostructures manufacturer to provide Nacelle thrust struts.  The contract is valued at $39 million and these components will be used in a new geared turbofan jet engine manufactured by one of the world’s leading providers of aircraft engines.  This engine is also expected to be used on several new commercial jetliners. Based on projections of sales from our customers, we expect that the majority of revenue from this contract will be in calendar 2016 and beyond.
 
Results of Operations
 
The following discussion of our results of operations constitutes management’s review of the factors that affected our financial and operating performance for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013.  This discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report.
 
 
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, we had four operating segments, AIM, WMI (including MSI and WPI) NTW, and EPC and separately reported our corporate overhead.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we had three operating segments, AIM, WMI (not including MSI and WPI) and NTW and separately reported our corporate overhead.  The results of operations of Decimal, MSI, WPI, EPC and ECC have been reflected within our financial reports since the dates of their acquisition, July 1, 2013, November 6, 2013, April 1, 2014, June 1, 2014, and September 1, 2014 respectively.

Net sales at AIM for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $9,678,000, a decrease of approximately $(185,000) or (1.9%) compared with $9,863,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The decrease in sales at AIM results from continuing low levels of defense spending and continued delays in manufacturing landing gear product for the Navy’s E2-D aircraft due to late shipments from various suppliers and defective raw materials.  We had previously stated that our backlog indicated and we anticipated a stronger third quarter and this has been the case. We also anticipate a stronger fourth quarter compared with the fourth quarter of 2013.
 
 
·
Net sales at WMI for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $3,339,000, a decrease of approximately $(461, 000) or (12.1%) compared with $3,800,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Net sales at WMI for 2014 included sales of $363,000 from new acquisitions.  Of these sales, $99,000 related to MSI, which was acquired on November 6, 2013, and $264,000 related to WPI, which was acquired on April 1, 2014.
 
 
·
Net sales at NTW for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $731,000, a decrease of $(1,658,000) or (69.4%) compared with net sales of $2,389,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. This decline was anticipated due to a delay in receiving expected orders for the US Navy relating to landing gear for F-18 aircraft.  We have begun to receive these orders and expect a return to higher sales in the fourth quarter of 2014 and through all of 2015.
 
 
·

Gross Profit:
 
Air Industries Group calculates gross profit for each operating subsidiary using a gross profit percentage method, using the gross profit percentage for the prior year as the percentage for the subsequent year.  The gross profit percentage is different for each subsidiary. Consolidated gross profit will be disproportionately affected, positively or negatively, by increased or decreased sales among the subsidiaries. Consolidated gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $3,557,000, a decrease of approximately $(186,000) or (5%), compared to approximately $3,743,000 for the comparable period in 2013. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, gross profit as a percentage of sales was 23.5% and was comparable to the 23.3% for the prior year.
 
 
 
·
AIM: Gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $1,744,000, a decrease of approximately $(182,000) or (9.5%), compared to approximately $1,926,000 for the comparable period in 2013.

 
·
WMI: Gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $815,000, a decrease of approximately $(138,000) or (14.5%), compared to approximately $953,000 for the comparable period in 2013. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, the gross profit as a percentage of sales was 24.4% as compared to 25.1% for the prior year.  The products of WPI are generally sold at a higher gross profit margin than WMI’s traditional products, a lower gross profit at MSI partially offset the beneficial impact of WPI’s higher profit margins.

 
·
NTW: Gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $284,000, a decrease of approximately $(580,000) or (67.1%), compared to approximately $864,000 for the comparable period in 2013 due to the previously mentioned lower sales.

 
·
EPC: Gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $713,000. EPC was acquired on June 1, 2014, and  from September 1, 2014, its results include those of ECC.
 
Selling, General & Administrative (“SG&A”): Consolidated SG&A costs for the three months ended September 30, 2014 totaled $2,997,000 an increase of $285,000 or 10.5% compared to $2,712,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The acquisition of EPC on June1, 2014 and ECC on September 1, 2014 increased SG&A costs by approximately $221,000 and accounted for approximately 78% of the increase. The principal components of SG&A costs were:
 
 
·
AIM: SG&A costs for the three months ended September 30, 2014 totaled approximately $850,000, an increase of $27,000 or 3.3% compared to $823,000 for the comparable period 2013.
 
 
·
WMI: SG&A costs for the three months ended September 30, 2014 totaled approximately $1,137,000, an increase of $86,000 or approximately 8.2% compared to $1,051,000 for the comparable period in 2013. The increase in SG&A costs at WMI reflects the additions of the operations of Decimal, MSI and WPI and the costs  expected as a result of the effort to consolidate their operations into WMI.   Once we fully integrate all of these operations into one cohesive operating unit, we anticipate a reduction of these costs.
 
 
·
NTW: SG&A costs totaled approximately $788,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $(51,000) or approximately (6.1%) compared to $839,000 for the comparable period in 2013.
 
 
·
EPC: SG&A costs, including those of ECC from  September 1, 2014, the date it was acquired, totaled $221,000.
 
Interest and Financing Costs; Income Taxes and Net Income:
 
Interest and financing costs were approximately $260,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of approximately $(21,000) or (7.5%) as compared to $281,000 for the comparable period in 2013.  Interest expense decreased primarily as a result of lower loan balances and, to a lesser degree, lower interest rates.
 
Income taxes were a benefit of approximately $(81,000) for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and a benefit of $(1,795,000) for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The income tax benefit in 2013 was the result of the Company determining that it no longer needed to provide a valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets.  This was based upon the fact that management believed that due to the sustained profitability of the Company and the probability that such profitability would continue, the net deferred tax assets was more likely than not to be realized.
 
Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $380,000, and declined by $(2,154,000) (85%) compared to net income of $2,534,000 for the comparable period in 2013.
