"Sales of our legacy Aerostructures products and at the recently acquired Valent plants met our expectations with combined sales increasing from fourth quarter 2012 levels," said Ronald S. Saks, Chief Executive Officer of LMI. "We anticipate growing revenue from this segment through 2013, based on both newly awarded work commencing during the year, as well as customer production rate increases scheduled later in 2013, notably for the Boeing 737 model. Revenue in the quarter included $6.9 million of tooling for a development program in which limited production is now starting. We also expect an additional $12.0 million of tooling revenue, about $9.0 million on this program, to be completed in 2013.
