Financial report summary

  • Business disruptions could seriously affect our sales and financial condition or increase our costs and expenses.
  • The adoption of new accounting guidance or changes in the interpretations of existing guidance could affect our financial results.
Management Discussion
  • Net sales decreased for the three-month fiscal period ended April 2, 2021, as compared to the corresponding period in 2020, due to a 14.5% decrease in organic sales and $6.8 million in lower sales due to the sale of our UK Composites business. The decrease in organic sales was primarily driven by $16.4 million in lower sales under our safe and arm devices programs, a $12.5 million decrease in sales on our commercial business and general aviation programs and a $1.2 million decrease in sales on our defense programs, excluding safe and arm devices. These decreases were partially offset by a $1.5 million increase in sales in industrial and other commercial programs. Sales under our medical programs remained relatively flat when compared to the corresponding period in 2020. Foreign currency exchange rates relative to the U.S. dollar had a favorable impact of $1.7 million on net sales for the three-month fiscal period ended April 2, 2021.
