Third Quarter Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $96.3 million, an increase of 1.3% from $95.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in net sales was mainly the result of a 15.8% increase in aerospace and defense driven by commercial aircraft build rates and the aerospace aftermarket offset by a 12.2% decline in industrial sales driven by slowing activity in mining and military vehicles. Gross margin for the third quarter was $36.3 million compared to $33.6 million for the same period last year. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales was 37.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 35.4% for the same period last year.

SG&A for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $16.6 million, an increase of $1.6 million over the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was 17.2% for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 15.8% for the same period last year.

Other operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 totaled $0.6 million, an increase of $0.2 million, compared to $0.4 million for the same period last year. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 other operating expenses consisted of $0.4 million of amortization of intangibles and $0.2 million in costs associated with asset disposals and restructuring. For the same period last year, other operating expenses consisted mainly of $0.4 million of amortization of intangibles.

Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $19.2 million, an increase of 5.2% compared to operating income of $18.2 million for the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, operating income was 19.9% compared to 19.1% for the same period last year.

Interest expense, net for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $0.3 million compared to $0.2 million for the same period last year.

The effective income tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012 includes a $0.1 million and $0.4 million benefit due to the reversal of unrecognized tax benefits associated with the conclusion of state and federal income tax audits. The effective income tax rate without these discrete items would have been 35.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 34.5% for the same period last year.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased 0.5% to $12.1 million compared to $12.2 million for the same period last year. Excluding the after tax impact of the discrete tax benefits in fiscal 2013 and 2012, net income would have been $12.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 2.3% compared to $11.7 million for the same period last year.

Excluding the after tax impact of the discrete tax benefits in fiscal 2013 and 2012, diluted EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 would have been 53 cents per share compared to 52 cents per share for the same period last year, an increase of 1.9%.
