The net claim settlement resulted in a gain of $19,744,000. -- First quarter 2019 cash flows from operating activities were increased by $27,497,000, relative to the same quarter in 2018. -- In Comtek's continuing effort to reduce airline operator's key metric of turnaround time for repaired aircraft components, while still providing premium quality, Comtek has embarked on deploying a forward base of operations located in the United Kingdom.

Review of 2019 First Quarter Financial Results
For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, the Avcorp Group recorded income from operations totaling $15,057,000 from $42,225,000 revenue, as compared to $4,606,000 operating losses from $43,276,000 revenue for the previous quarter. It should be noted that 2019 operating income benefited by $517,000 income from amortization of onerous contracts provision into income (March 31, 2018: $3,581,000 amortization of unfavourable contract liability and onerous contract liability). On January 25, 2019, the Company and its subsidiary Avcorp Composite Fabrication Inc. (the "Avcorp Parties") entered into an agreement with HITCO Carbon Composites, Inc., SGL Carbon, LLC, and SGL Carbon SE (the "SGL parties") and a customer to settle all claims related to alleged deficiencies in HITCO's non-destructive inspection processes and other business matters including a lease renewal and collection of previously provisioned accounts receivable in exchange for gross consideration of USD$12,000,000 from the SGL parties to Avcorp and mutual releases among the Avcorp Parties, SGL Parties and a customer related to the acquisition. The net claim settlement resulted in a gain of $19,744,000. Continued consolidation of operating costs have resulted in reduced current quarter operating losses, in comparison to the same quarter in 2018 after the benefit of amortization to income of unfavourable contracts liability and onerous contracts provisions, and the income impact of the net claim settlement have been removed.
During the quarter ended March 31, 2019, cash flows from operating activities, excluding the impact of changes in non-cash working capital, provided $12,998,000 of cash as compared with utilization of $4,572,000 of cash during the quarter ended March 31, 2018; a significant improvement, primarily attributable to a reduction in operating losses during 2019 in comparison to 2018 and net claim settlement collected of USD$10,810,000.
As at March 31, 2019, the Company had $2,405,000 cash on hand (December 31, 2018: $2,051,000) and had utilized $72,005,000 of its operating line of credit (December 31, 2018: $85,840,000).
