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.

First quarter 2020 operating loss was $4,700,000 compared to operating income of $15,057,000 in 2019. Operating loss improved by $380,000 in comparison to 2019, after the benefit of the amortization of onerous contract provisions and a net claim settlement have been removed. 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).
