  • Sales. Sales were $1,393 in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $1,195 in the second quarter of 2021 and $2,717 in the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $2,404 in the six months ended June 30, 2021.

The increase of $313, or 13%, in the six months ended June 30, 2022 was primarily due to higher sales of 31% from the commercial aerospace market, an increase in material cost pass through of approximately $100, and favorable product pricing of $33, partially offset by lower sales in the defense aerospace market.
