Revenue increased 16% to $20.5 million for the third quarter resulting in quarterly earnings of three cents per share

OLATHE, KANSAS, March 16, 2023,Butler National Corporation (OTCQB: BUKS), a leader in the growing global market for aircraft modification, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and a recognized provider of gaming management services, announces its financial results for the third quarter fiscal 2023 ended January 31, 2023.  The Company will defer the conference call for the quarter to a planned fiscal year end results call following the filing of the Company’s Form 10-K.

Management Comments

The quarter-ended January 31, 2023, was a positive quarter.  Both the Professional Services and Aerospace Products segments experienced increases in revenue. Revenue increased 16% to $20.5 million in the three months ended January 31, 2023, as compared to $17.6 million in the three months ended January 31, 2022. The increase in revenue reflects an increase of 25% in Aerospace Products revenue and an increase of 8% in Professional Services revenue. Our Aerospace Products segment continues to focus on new opportunities in international markets, obsolescence solutions and the development of new Federal Aviation Administration supplemental type certificates (“STCs”). Sports wagering became legal in the State of Kansas on September 1, 2022, and resulted in a new revenue source of $1.2 million for the Professional Services segment. In addition to the online platform, we initially opened a temporary physical sports book and now feature a permanent DraftKings branded physical sports book at Boot Hill Casino.

Third quarter fiscal 2023 net income was $2.0 million compared to a net income of $2.7 million in the third quarter fiscal 2022. Third quarter fiscal 2023 operating margin was 17% compared to 25% in third quarter fiscal 2022. We continue to review operational processes and methods to control general and administrative expenses.

During the three months ended January 31, 2023, we invested approximately $578  in the development and acquisition of new products.  This expenditure for design and development engineering, testing, and certification of new products is the foundation for Aerospace Products and is essential to our long-term revenue and profits.


We are positive about the remainder of fiscal 2023. Our cash position increased $4.7 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2023 and backlog remains strong at $27.1 million. Working with our contracted platform, we have brought online sports wagering to Kansans on behalf of the Kansas Lottery. We opened our permanent retail sports book at Boot Hill Casino & Resort on February 28, 2023. Management and all employees are focused on the development of new products, staffing, production and cost management.  We are committed to our customers and to increasing shareholder value.
