Full year 2013 revenues were $1,365.3 million, compared to $1,436.8 million in 2012.

Mr. David W. Thompson, Orbital’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Orbital’s fourth quarter financial results reflected solid growth in revenues, earnings per share and free cash flow, and capped a very successful year in 2013. The company’s operations last year were highlighted by the successful introduction of our Antares medium-class space launch vehicle and Cygnus cargo logistics spacecraft, as we concluded a multi-year research and development program to create these products and set the stage for expanded operational performance in 2014 and beyond.” He added, “With new orders and option exercises for 38 major launch vehicles and satellites and other new business wins last year valued at $2.3 billion, Orbital looks forward to a promising year in 2014.”
