Ducommun Reports Results For The Third Quarter Ended September 29, 2012

Stocks in this article: DCO

Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE:DCO) today reported results for its third quarter and the nine months ended September 29, 2012.


  • The Company reported net income of $5.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, up $2.2 million versus $2.9 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, reported in the third quarter of 2011 excluding pre-tax merger-related expenses of $2.7 million
  • Cash generated from operating activities in the third quarter of 2012 was $5.7 million, an improvement of $11.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2011
  • The Company made a voluntary $10.0 million principal pre-payment on its term loan
  • Firm backlog at the end of the third quarter was approximately $642 million

“Ducommun’s focus on the bottom line again produced tangible results this quarter,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “While revenue was flat both year-over-year and sequentially, reflecting some softness in segments outside aerospace and defense, we recorded higher operating performance across a number of fronts driven by better asset utilization and improved product mix. Our margins expanded, cash flow rose, and earnings increased appreciably to $0.48 per diluted share.

“At the same time, we pre-paid $10 million of our term loan in September and plan for further pre-payments totaling between $10 million and $15 million in the fourth quarter, as we continue to de-lever the balance sheet. Our backlog is strong, and we remain confident about the future based on the enduring programs we serve, our pipeline of new opportunities, and our unique range of capabilities. As we turn toward 2013, we believe we have more room to grow and strengthen Ducommun and are dedicated to this end for our shareholders, our employees, and our customers.”
