Stocks in this article: KAMN

Outlook

The Company's expectations for 2013 are as follows:

  • Aerospace segment sales of $620 million to $635 million, up 6.7% to 9.3% over 2012
  • Aerospace segment operating margins of 16.0% to 16.5%
  • Distribution segment sales of $1,080 million to $1,115 million, up 6.7% to 10.2% over 2012 (sales from continuing operations)
  • Distribution segment operating margins of 5.2% to 5.6%
  • Interest expense of approximately $13.0 million
  • Corporate expenses of approximately $50 million
  • Tax rate of approximately 35%
  • Capital expenditures of $40 million to $45 million
  • Free cash flow* of $35 million to $40 million

Chief Financial Officer, William C. Denninger, commented, "2012 delivered the improved cash flow performance we have indicated is a focus for us. Our free cash flow* was $52.0 million for 2012, an increase of 345.7% when compared to 2011 and represented a conversion rate of 96%. This was higher than our previous expectation due primarily to improvements in our working capital management. We delivered adjusted diluted earnings per share* of $2.18 for the year through continued focus on the bottom line. At Aerospace, 2013 should see higher sales as we move closer to full rate production on several ramp up programs. At Distribution, we will continue to monitor market conditions, and will adjust our cost base as necessary to support profit margins."

Please see the MD&A section of the Company's SEC Form 10-K filed concurrent with the issuance of this release for greater detail on our results and various company programs.
