We are supplying requirements for critical defense programs including the Sea Hawk and Black Hawk Helicopters, the A-10 Thunderbolt Attack Jet and the C-5 Cargo Jet as well as civilian aircraft programs including the S-92 helicopter and the Gulfstream G650.

Additionally, using 2008 as the baseline, for the three-year period ending in 2011, we expect to achieve a compound annual growth rate for revenue in the range of 30% to 35%, with a resulting compound annual growth rate for net income in the range of 50% to 60%.”
