CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SIFCO Industries, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SIF) today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended June 30, 2014.

  • Income from continuing operations before income taxes in third quarter fiscal 2014 was $2.6 million compared to $4.2 million in third quarter fiscal 2013.
  • Net income from continuing operations for third quarter fiscal 2014 was $2.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2.9 million, or $0.53 per diluted share in third quarter fiscal 2013.

    First Nine Months

  • Net sales from continuing operations increased 3.1% in the first nine months of fiscal 2014 to $86.7 million, compared to $84.1 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2013.
  • Income from continuing operations before income taxes in the first nine months of fiscal 2014 was $6.6 million compared to $8.5 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2013.

    CEO Michael S. Lipscomb stated, "SIFCO’s year-over-year sales from its continuing operations reflect sustained growth in its aerospace component sales and a recovery in its energy component sales during the quarter. We foresee strong aerospace sales volume and even though we see looming problems with long term volume in energy, we see continuing recovery in the energy markets during the remainder of fiscal 2014. SIFCO is well positioned for sales growth for the remaining quarter in fiscal 2014.”

    The Company is engaged in the production and sale of a variety of metal working services and products produced primarily to the specific design requirements of its customers. The services include forging, heat-treating, coating welding, machining and selective plating. The products include forged components (both conventional and precision), machined forged parts, other machined metal components as well as turbine engine component repairs. The Company’s operations were conducted in three business segments during fiscal 2013: (i) SIFCO Forged Components, continuing into fiscal 2014; (ii) Turbine Component Services and Repair ("Repair Group"), discontinued in fiscal 2013; and (iii) Applied Surface Concepts ("ASC"), divested in fiscal 2013. Due to the divestiture and discontinuation of the two segments in fiscal 2013, management now evaluates the Company as a single reporting segment in the Aerospace and Energy ("A&E") industries.
