“I am pleased with our net sales growth for the quarter ended June 30, 2011,” commented David M. Sindelar, Chief Executive Officer. “The record level of net sales was consistent with our expectations and reflected the strong backlog of orders on which we have commented for the past several quarters, and the partial period benefit of price increases implemented in the second quarter. Our backlog remains strong as we also achieved a record level of bookings during the second quarter, with the pace of second quarter orders running at parity with our reported net sales. Except for a minor sequential decline in net sales to military and aerospace customers, our 13.4% net sales growth over the first quarter of 2011 was fairly consistent across all of our end markets. Our outlook for the second half of 2011 remains solid overall. However, we are beginning to hear some news of inventory level corrections from customers in our industrial & instrumentation sector and our computer and datacommunications sector.”
