The Company reported revenue of $91.2 million for the third quarter compared to $73.4 million for the prior year period. The Company reported net income of $6.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the third quarter compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.10 per share, for the prior year period.

Pretax income from continuing operations of $7.9 million for the three months ended October 2, 2011 included a pretax gain of $3.6 million from the disposition of idle assets and a foreign currency translation gain of $2.8 million before tax.

For the nine months ended October 2, 2011, the Company reported revenue of $252.0 million compared to $199.4 million for the prior year period and net income of $6.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $8.6 million, or $0.46 per share.

The Company’s income from continuing operations for the nine months ended October 2, 2011 was $7.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, as compared to a loss of $8.1 million, or $0.43 per share, for the prior year period.

Pretax income from continuing operations of $10.0 million for the nine months ended October 2, 2011 included a pretax gain of $3.0 million in connection with a settlement regarding prior year volumes with one of its customers, a pretax gain of $4.2 million from the disposition of idle assets and a foreign currency translation gain of $2.1 million before tax.

“Our Industrial Group continued to show important signs of progress during the quarter, with revenue and income increasing on a year-over-year basis,” said Jeffrey T. Gill, president and chief executive officer. “We expect the improved cost profile and strong operational performance to make a material contribution to the growth and profitability of the Company during the remainder of the year.”

“Revenue for our Electronics Group increased 15% sequentially for the quarter, while gross profit increased 223% sequentially. While sales volumes for the near term continue to reflect the impact of the delayed approval by Congress of the fiscal 2011 Defense Appropriations Bill, we continued to see improvement in the order flow during the quarter as funds began to be allocated through the various departments and agencies for new program use.”

The Industrial Group

Revenue for our Industrial Group increased 38% to $72.6 million in the third quarter compared to $52.7 million for the prior year period, primarily as a result of increased demand from customers in the commercial vehicle and trailer markets. Gross profit for the quarter increased 197% to $6.9 million, or 10% of revenue, compared to $2.3 million, or 4% of revenue for the same period in 2010, reflecting the positive conversion associated with the increase in revenue and productivity.

The Electronics Group

Revenue for our Electronics Group was $18.5 million in the third quarter compared to $20.7 million in the prior year period, while gross profit for the quarter was $3.3 million, or 18% of revenue, compared to $4.9 million, or 24% of revenue for the same period in 2010. Revenue for the period continued to reflect the impact of the delay in funding for orders as a result of the late enactment of 2011 Federal budget, while gross profit was impacted by unfavorable mix and additional engineering costs for product portfolio improvements.

Outlook

Mr. Gill added, “We will continue to concentrate on the daily execution of our business as we finish 2011. We expect to see strong double digit comparable period growth in the top line of our Industrial Group going forward, as recently announced contracts add additional volume going into the new year. Our team remains acutely focused on increasing the rate of profit conversion from each revenue dollar, thereby driving further margin expansion and earnings during the year.”

“For our Electronics Group, we expect to see the continued recovery of the defense market once the 2012 budget authorization is enacted.”

“The Company is well-positioned and our team is focused on delivering improved operational and financial results during the year.”
