Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously disclosed, on May 22, 2020, CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (the “Company”) received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) Division of Enforcement (the “Division”) seeking documents and information relating, among other things, to previously disclosed errors in and restatement of the Company’s financial statements, the Company’s October 16, 2018 equity offering and the recent separation of the Company’s former Chief Financial Officers. By letter dated March 12, 2021 and received on March 16, 2021, the Division Staff notified the Company that the Division has concluded its investigation and, based on the information the Division has as of such date, it does not intend to recommend an enforcement action by the Commission against the Company. The Division’s notice was provided under the guidelines described in the final paragraph of Securities Act Release No. 5310 which states in part that the notice “must in no way be construed as indicating that the party has been exonerated or that no action may ultimately result from the staff’s investigation.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Except for historical information, all of the statements, expectations, and assumptions contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K are forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding the Division’s intention not to recommend an enforcement action by the Commission against the Company. Actual results may differ materially from those explicit or implicit in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to: the risk that the Commission may decide to initiate an enforcement action or take other action against the Company and the other risk factors disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 and other SEC filings, copies of which are available on the Company’s website at www. cpiaero.com. The Company assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.





Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
