“Fourth quarter results were solid in a tough government spending environment,” said William M. Brown, president and chief executive officer. “Performance benefited from our commitment to operational excellence and ongoing cost-reduction efforts, including restructuring actions announced in April that were executed faster than expected and generated fourth quarter cost savings. As we enter fiscal 2014, we now expect that restructuring and other actions will generate net annualized cost savings of approximately $60 million.”
“We were particularly encouraged by the strong new orders momentum in the international tactical radio market. With a tactical book-to-bill of 1.49 and greater than one in both international and U.S. markets, tactical backlog increased substantially in the fourth quarter.”
