Logistics and Manufacturing Services

  • Fourth quarter 2010 sales were $135.8 million, up 6 percent from $128.6 million in the same period last year. The increase in sales was driven by growth in the North American distribution businesses and modest improvement in the aerospace aftermarket business. Sales in the Company’s European-based distribution business were flat net of foreign exchange. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted fourth quarter 2010 sales by $1.8 million.
  • Operating profit of $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 was up 47 percent compared to the prior year period operating profit of $5.2 million. Operating profit improved primarily due to an increase in sales volumes from the North American distribution businesses, and to a lesser extent the aerospace aftermarket, and was partially offset by higher product and employee-related costs.
  • Full year 2010 sales were $548.5 million, up 2 percent from $539.1 million in 2009. The increase was primarily a result of organic sales growth from end-market improvements in the North American distribution businesses. Aerospace aftermarket sales decreased from 2009 reflecting the continued trend of deferred maintenance. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted sales of $1.1 million in 2010.
  • Full year 2010 operating profit decreased 16 percent to $36.9 million from 2009 primarily due to lower sales from the Company’s higher margin aerospace aftermarket business, continued investments to benefit sales force productivity in the distribution businesses, and the impact of higher product and employee-related costs. The segment benefited from volume increase from the North American distribution businesses as industrial and automotive end-markets showed improvements from 2009.

Precision Components

  • Fourth quarter 2010 sales were $149.5 million, up 15 percent from $129.9 million in the same period last year. The increase in sales was primarily a result of continued improving market conditions in industrial manufacturing and transportation businesses based in North America and Europe. Sales in the aerospace original equipment manufacturing business were relatively flat compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. Foreign exchange negatively affected sales by $1.3 million in the fourth quarter.
  • Operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $10.7 million, up 74 percent from the fourth quarter of 2009. Operating profits improved primarily as a result of an increase in sales volumes from the industrial manufacturing and transportation businesses based in North America and Europe and lower cost structures partially offset by costs to meet increased customer demand and employee-related costs. Additionally, fourth quarter 2009 results included $3.6 million (pre-tax) of severance and plant consolidation charges.
  • Full year 2010 sales were $595.9 million, up 19 percent from $501.5 million in 2009. The increase was primarily a result of increased sales in the industrial manufacturing businesses based in North America and Europe as well as general market improvements in the transportation industry, including automotive. Sales in the aerospace OEM business were relatively flat in 2010 compared to 2009. The impact of foreign currency translation increased sales by approximately $0.7 million in 2010.
  • Full year 2010 operating profit was $49.6 million compared to $16.6 million in 2009. Operating profit improvements in 2010 were due primarily to the profit impact of higher sales levels, lower cost structures resulting from previous actions and lean initiatives. These improvements in operating profit were partly offset by additional costs resulting from higher demand including employee-related costs, such as incentive compensation and temporary labor. In addition, the 2009 results included approximately $10.7 million (pre-tax) in restructuring charges primarily for employee termination costs and asset write-downs associated with moving the operations of two facilities.

Additional Information

  • For the full year 2010, other expenses (income), net was expenses of $2.5 million, compared to income of $2.0 million the prior year. The income in 2009 resulted primarily from a $3.8 million gain on the repurchase of certain convertible subordinated notes.
  • The Company’s effective tax rate from continuing operations for 2010 was 16.8 percent compared with 2.4 percent in 2009. The increase in the 2010 effective tax rate from 2009 was due primarily to a shift in the mix of income derived from higher taxing jurisdictions and the repatriation in 2010 of a portion of current year foreign earnings to the U.S in the amount of $7.5 million.

2011 Outlook

“As we look ahead to 2011, we remain committed to expanding our geographic reach and enhancing our product offerings to customers worldwide. We believe that our focus on driving profitable sales growth, together with continued stabilization and growth in our end-markets, will benefit us in the future. We expect our top-line to grow 5 to 8 percent and earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.15 to $1.30”, said Christopher J. Stephens Jr., Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer.
