Moog Reports 17% Increase in Earnings per Share

EAST AURORA, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2012) - Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A) (NYSE: MOG.B) today announced second quarter earnings of $35 million and earnings per share of $.77, a 17% increase over last year. Total sales of $625 million were up $51 million, or 9%, from a year ago.

Total Aircraft Controls sales in the quarter of $236 million were up $30 million from last year. Military aircraft sales were $143 million, up $12 million. Sales were higher for ongoing production programs including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the V-22 tilt rotor aircraft and various aircraft sold into Japan, India and South Korea. Military aftermarket sales were very strong at $55 million.

The Company's commercial aircraft sales were $94 million, up $18 million, with sales to Boeing and Airbus totaling $44 million. Revenue on business jet programs increased 44% to $10 million. Commercial aftermarket sales of $29 million were up $4 million.

Space and Defense segment sales of $90 million were up $2 million from a year ago. Space sales were $45 million on increased sales of controls for satellites, launch vehicles and NASA programs. These were offset by lower sales in defense and security markets.

The Company's Industrial Systems segment had a good quarter with sales of $168 million, an increase of $12 million. Sales of test and simulation products were up 49%. These included motion bases for flight training simulators and product test systems for aerospace and automotive applications. Sales of controls for industrial automation and energy were unchanged.

Sales for the Components Group of $96 million were $5 million higher than last year's second quarter. Increased sales of marine, medical and industrial products offset lower defense sales. The Company's marine product line is used primarily in off-shore oil exploration and sales in this market increased 37% as the price of oil continued to rise.

The Medical Devices segment had sales of $35 million, up 3% from last year. Sales of pumps were up $1 million offsetting flat administrative set sales and lower sales of sensors and hand pieces.

The Company's twelve month backlog of $1.3 billion is up 8% from a year ago.

The Company has affirmed its guidance for the year. Sales for the year will be $2.47 billion. Net earnings are now projected at $152 million and earnings per share at $3.31, an increase of 12% over the previous fiscal year.

"The Company delivered another good result in the second quarter," said John Scannell, CEO. "We saw sales growth in all five of our segments, with the biggest increase in our Aircraft segment. In general, the defense business is holding its own, our industrial markets are healthy and our commercial aircraft business is powering ahead. With six months gone, fiscal 2012 is coming together nicely and we continue to forecast a 12% growth in earnings per share over our fiscal 2011 result."

  • we enter into fixed-price contracts, which could subject us to losses if we have cost overruns;
  • if our subcontractors or suppliers fail to perform their contractual obligations, our prime contract performance and our ability to obtain future business could be materially and adversely impacted;
