The Company reported revenue of $85.1 million for the second quarter compared to $63.1 million for the prior year period. The Company reported a net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.08 per share, for the second quarter compared to a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.23 per share, for the prior year period.

For the six months ended July 3, 2011, the Company reported revenue of $160.9 million compared to $126.0 million for the prior year period and net income of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $6.7 million, or $0.36 per share.

The Company’s income from continuing operations for the six months ended July 3, 2011 was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, as compared to a loss of $6.4 million, or $0.34 per share, for the prior year period. Income from continuing operations for the six months ended July 3, 2011 included a gain of $3.0 million in connection with a settlement regarding prior year volumes with one of its customers.

“Our Industrial Group continued to show important signs of progress during the quarter, with revenue and gross profit increasing on a year-over-year and sequential basis,” said Jeffrey T. Gill, president and chief executive officer. “We expect the improved cost profile and strong operational performance to make a material contribution to the growth and profitability of the Company during 2011 as the commercial vehicle and trailer markets continue to recover.”

“Our Electronics Group continues to be affected by the delayed approval by Congress of the fiscal 2011 Defense Appropriations Bill, as funds have not yet been fully allocated through the various departments and agencies for program use. We continue to expect the eventual recovery of this market as these funds are allocated.”

The Industrial Group

Revenue for our Industrial Group increased 48% to $68.9 million in the second quarter compared to $46.6 million for the prior year period, primarily as a result of increased demand from customers in the commercial vehicle and trailer markets. Gross profit for the quarter increased 210% to $7.1 million, or 10% of revenue, compared to $2.3 million, or 5% of revenue for the same period in 2010, reflecting the positive conversion associated with the increase in revenue and productivity.

The Electronics Group

Revenue for our Electronics Group was $16.2 million in the second quarter compared to $16.5 million in the prior year period, while gross profit for the quarter was $1.0 million, or 6% of revenue, compared to $2.3 million, or 14% of revenue for the same period in 2010. Revenue for the period continued to reflect the impact of the delay in funding for orders as a result of the late enactment of 2011 Federal budget, while gross profit was impacted by unfavorable mix and additional engineering costs for product portfolio improvements.

Outlook

Mr. Gill added, “We will continue to concentrate on the daily execution of our business as we move through 2011. We expect to see strong double digit comparable period growth in the top line of our Industrial Group going forward, as the recovery of the commercial vehicle and trailer markets continue. Our team remains acutely focused on increasing the rate of profit conversion from each revenue dollar, thereby driving further margin expansion and earnings during the year.”

“For our Electronics Group, we expect to see an eventual recovery in the defense market now that the 2011 budget authorization has been enacted and the flow of funds to the various departments and agencies for program use has begun. For the long-term, we will continue to invest in R&D as we focus on delivering solutions for our nation’s rapidly expanding cyber security needs. The impact of these new products and technologies is expected to contribute to the Company’s financial results as early as 2012.”

“The Company is well-positioned and our team is focused on delivering improved operational and financial results during the year.”
