Recent Milestone Advancements Drive Investors’ Demand, Triggering A 9% Rise in Stock Price
YAKIMA, WA — MAY 25, 2023 — CubCrafters, a leading designer and manufacturer of Light-Sport and Part 23 Certified aircraft, announced today that the price of shares in their Regulation A+ public offering was raised to $5.45 due to a number of positive developments.
In November of 2022, for the first time in its history, CubCrafters began accepting investments at $5 per share with a minimum investment of $400 per investor. Since that time, investors have enthusiastically responded and subscribed to the stock offering.
The Company reported that 2022 was a banner year. While many aircraft manufacturers were struggling, the company achieved strong financial performance, which included:
- Strong continuing new aircraft demand resulting in a nearly two-year backlog in orders, even with improvements in manufacturing efficiencies
- Revenue increased 5% in 2022, with more than double the net profits in 2022 vs. 2021
- Earnings have returned to near pre-pandemic levels, with EBIDTA above 9% in 2022
- The acquisition of Summit Aircraft Skis, allowing more vertical integration while also broadening the CubCrafters product lineup and adding a new profit center
- Successfully launching a new aircraft model for international markets, with initial purchase commitments for a dozen of these new aircraft in 2024 and 2025

In addition to good 2022 financial performance, a number of additional positive developments have recently been announced by the Company. These include: the initial testing of a patented new electric propulsion technology for fixed wing aircraft, the addition of robotics to some aircraft parts manufacturing processes, and a successful collaboration with Red Bull to raise the Company’s international profile with the landing of a CubCrafters airplane on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, a spectacular event that has been viewed by more than half a billion people worldwide.
“Since our public offering announcement, demand for our shares continued to grow,” stated Patrick Horgan, CubCrafters’ President and CEO. “The milestone achievements that we announced in 2022, such as the introduction of the new Carbon Cub UL model powered by the multi-fuel Rotax 916iS engine, two rounds of NASA funding of our Electric Lift Augmenting Slats [ELAS] project, and strong 2022 financial performance drove the share price change.”
“With strong emphasis on our core business, we continue to execute on capital-efficient and strategic expansions improving our product quality and performance, while working to improve and optimize our customer service and support — all strong reasons for investors to participate in CubCrafters’ bright and exciting future,” Horgan added.
“We are in a unique position to serve our customers through a diverse product line that appeals to every segment of the adventure aircraft market — both domestic and international — which will serve us well to fuel continued growth,” said Brad Damm, Vice President, CubCrafters. “We are more excited than ever about the future of this Company, and we look forward to more investors joining us in building that future.”
