Sales of controls for industrial automation applications were down $9 million while sales of wind energy controls were $14 million lower. Sales of simulation products, including motion bases for flight training simulators, were up $4 million but offset by a reduction in test systems for aerospace and automotive applications.
Sales for the Components Group of $99 million were $3 million higher than last year's second quarter. Increased sales of energy products offset slightly lower defense sales. Medical sales were unchanged. The Components Group recently completed two acquisitions, Tritech and Aspen Motion Technologies.
The Medical Devices segment had sales of $35 million, comparable to a year ago, as higher pump sales offset lower set sales.
The Company's twelve month backlog is $1.4 billion.
The Company has updated its guidance for the year. Sales for the year will be $2.59 billion. Net earnings are now projected at $156 to $160 million and earnings per share in a range of $3.40 to $3.50. The midpoint of $3.45 is an increase of 4% over the previous fiscal year.
"Sales, earnings and earnings per share were up this quarter, so the news is generally good," said John Scannell, CEO. "Our industrial markets remain soft so fiscal 2013 looks like it will continue to be a challenging year and we are working to ensure that we meet our operating goals. Our operations should deliver earnings per share in the range of $3.55 to $3.65 but we'll incur a total of $.15 per share in restructuring that reduces the range to $3.40 to $3.50 per share for the year. Sales in the second half of the year will be higher than the first half, and we should see a pickup in earnings in both our Industrial and Space & Defense segments."
