AeroVironment Stock Is Moving After Hours: What's Going On? - AeroVironment (NASDAQ:AVAV)

AeroVironment Inc AVAV shares are moving around in Tuesday’s after-hours session after the company reported mixed fiscal third-quarter results.

  • Q3 Revenue: $134.4 million beat estimates of $125.49 million
  • Q3 EPS: $0.33 missed estimates of $0.41

AeroVironment said revenues jumped 49% on a year-over-year basis while the company’s backlog climbed 83%. 

AeroVironment’s top-line results reflect strong, growing demand for its unmanned robotics solutions, particularly driven by a “significant rise” in orders for its advanced Puma and Switchblade systems.

“This quarter’s performance sets the stage for a strong finish to fiscal 2023 – a transformational year for the Company – and we have modestly increased our top line guidance accordingly,” said Wahid Nawabi, chairman, president and CEO of AeroVironment.

We have also reduced our EPS guidance based on two non-cash impacts; accelerated depreciation tied to our Medium UAS business and greater than expected unrealized losses tied to our equity investments.”

For fiscal year 2023, AeroVironment now expects revenue to be between $510 million and $525 million and adjusted earnings to be in a range of $1.13 to $1.33 per share.
