Commenting on the company’s performance and its outlook for fiscal year 2013, Jeffry D. Frisby, Triumph’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continued our strong performance during the third quarter delivering increased revenue, operating income growth and year-over-year operating margin expansion across all three of our business segments. We continued to execute well and generate significant cash flow. Strategically, we completed the acquisition of Embee, Inc. and signed an agreement to acquire Goodrich Pump and Engine Control Systems. In addition to providing a better balance within our business, both of these acquisitions advance our technical capabilities and will significantly enhance our ability to offer additional solutions to our customers. We expect this momentum to carry on into our fourth quarter and are confident of our ability to deliver long-term growth and profitability.”
“Based on the strong year-to-date performance, current production rates, and a weighted average share count of 52.5 million shares, we project sales for fiscal year 2013 to be approximately $3.65 billion and are raising our full year earnings guidance to earnings per share from continuing operations of approximately $6.05 per diluted share, which includes the benefit of the retroactive reinstatement of the research and development tax credit and excludes integration costs and early retirement incentives.”
