Moog Reports 22% Increase in Net Earnings

EAST AURORA, NY--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A) (NYSE: MOG.B) today announced second quarter earnings of $31 million, a 22% increase over last year's second quarter. Earnings per share of $.66 were 20% higher. Total sales of $574 million were up $64 million, or 12%, from a year ago.

Total Aircraft Controls sales in the quarter of $206 million were up $17 million from last year. Military aircraft sales were $123 million, up $9 million. On-going production programs including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, F-15 fighter, V-22 tilt rotor aircraft and the Black Hawk helicopter had slightly lower sales while military aftermarket sales in the quarter were very strong, up $19 million, or 55%.

The Company's commercial aircraft sales were $74 million, up $9 million, with sales to Boeing and Airbus totaling $37 million. This included a $5 million increase in deliveries for the Boeing 787. Revenue on business jet programs increased 52% to $7 million. Commercial aftermarket sales of $24 million were up $3 million and the Company's navigation aids product line had sales of $10 million.

The Space and Defense Controls segment had another excellent quarter. Sales at $88 million were up $9 million from a year ago. In the defense controls product line, the Driver's Vision Enhancer program generated another $7 million in sales. Security and surveillance sales of $12 million were $7 million higher, assisted by the recent Pieper acquisition in Germany.

The Company's Industrial Systems segment continues to grow stronger. Sales in the quarter of $156 million increased $35 million from the prior year. This was the seventh consecutive quarter of sales growth for legacy industrial products sold by the segment. Sales of controls for capital equipment improved by 28% as the Company's major industrial product lines, including plastics, metal forming and steel mill controls recorded significant sales increases. Wind energy products generated $34 million in revenue, a 31% increase.

Sales for the Components Group of $90 million were unchanged from last year's second quarter but there has been a significant mix shift. Increased sales of marine, medical and industrial products have offset reduced military sales. Eurofighter revenues are winding down and the level of activity in overhaul and upgrades of military vehicles is much reduced from last year's level. The Company's marine product line is used primarily in off-shore oil exploration and sales in this market increased $4 million as the price of oil continued to increase.

The Medical Devices segment had sales of $34 million, up 6% from last year. Sales of pumps were down $1 million while administrative set sales were $1 million higher and sales of sensors and hand pieces were $2 million higher. This segment is on track to resolve a previously announced software recall for IV pumps and those pumps did not ship during the quarter.

The Company's twelve month backlog of $1.2 billion is up 8% from a year ago.

The Company has increased its guidance for the year. Sales for the year will be $2.27 billion. Net earnings are now projected at $129 million and earnings per share at $2.80, an increase of 19% over the previous fiscal year.

"In total, our second quarter sales and earnings were better than our forecast and we're on track for a record year," said R.T. Brady, Chairman and CEO. "Aircraft, Space and Defense, and Industrial Systems will be up significantly from last year. The Components Group will deliver another solid performance. Medical Devices sales are developing more slowly than we'd forecasted and we've revised our plan to reflect that. The overall result will be a year better than our original forecast and we're now projecting a 19% increase in earnings per share."
