Mike Harlan, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We feel this was another good quarter, even with mixed financial results. Even though our sales were off somewhat, due in part to a shipments slowdown in September related to our ongoing labor negotiations, our earnings per share and EBITDA for the quarter were still about even with the same quarter last year. Our sales, earnings, and EBITDA for the first half of our fiscal year were all up from the same period last year. Our inventory is up slightly, as we ramp up for higher shipments this quarter. Our bookings were strong again this quarter, including higher government spares orders, and our backlog is close to a new record. Our cash flow continues to be strong, and we were able to make an extra debt payment in the quarter. We are once again fully compliant with all of our debt covenants. With ample cash and no projected use of our Revolver line of credit, we are financially well-positioned."
