Ducommun Reports Results For The Third Quarter Ended October 1, 2011

Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE:DCO) today reported results for its third quarter and nine months ended October 1, 2011.

Recent Highlights

  • Net sales increased 86% for the third quarter of 2011 versus the third quarter of 2010, reflecting increased sales of $83.8 million from the LaBarge, Inc. (“LaBarge”) acquisition
  • Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2011 were $0.09 and, excluding merger-related expenses, were $0.34
  • Firm backlog at the end of the third quarter 2011 was approximately $611.7 million

“We are pleased to report our first full quarter of financial results that include LaBarge under the Ducommun umbrella,” said Anthony J. Reardon, president and chief executive officer. “The integration of our operations remains on track, with the combined Ducommun LaBarge Technologies benefiting from strong demand across a diverse set of end markets. In addition, Ducommun AeroStructures saw revenue grow in the third quarter by 11% year-over-year, reflecting increases in both commercial and military sales. We expect further expansion in the quarters to come along with margin improvement driven by higher operating leverage and the impact of synergies from our acquisition.”

Sales for the third quarter of 2011 increased 86% to $185.1 million, compared to $99.4 million for the third quarter of 2010, reflecting revenue of $83.8 million from the LaBarge acquisition and 2% organic growth, primarily from increased sales of products for commercial aircraft. Net income for the third quarter was $1.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.8 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the comparable period last year. Excluding pre-tax acquisition-related expenses (including cost of sales relating to the write-up of LaBarge inventory) of $3.9 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, net income was $3.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. During the quarter, the Company generated $3.7 million of cash flow from operations, excluding $9.7 million of acquisition-related costs.
