EAST AURORA, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A) (NYSE: MOG.B) today announced first quarter sales of $621 million, up 3% from a year ago. Net earnings were $34 million and earnings per share were $.75, both 6% lower compared to last year's first quarter on lower industrial sales.
Aircraft segment sales of $252 million were up 9% from last year with gains in both military and commercial markets. Commercial aircraft sales increased 16% compared to a year ago. Strong OEM production sales of $75 million included a 47% increase in sales to Boeing. Commercial aircraft aftermarket sales of $27 million were 5% higher.
Military aircraft sales were up 5% to $150 million. Military aftermarket sales were 17% higher, at $57 million, and OEM sales were unchanged.
Space and Defense sales at $87 million were down marginally from a year ago. Sales in satellite-related businesses were stronger and helped by recent acquisitions. This increase offset weaker launch vehicle and NASA sales. Sales for ground vehicle and security and surveillance systems were also soft during the quarter.
Industrial Systems sales of $148 million were down 6% from a year ago. Sales of simulation and test systems were 3% higher, at $33 million, while industrial automation sales were down 4% and sales of wind power controls were down 36%.
Components Group sales of $99 million were very strong, up 13% in the quarter. Sales of energy market products, including marine sales, more than doubled to $24 million compared to a year ago. Medical components sales were 8% higher partially offsetting lower sales into defense and industrial markets.
Medical Devices sales were unchanged at $35 million. Pump sales were down while sales of administration sets were up 12%.
Twelve month consolidated backlog was $1.3 billion, unchanged from a year ago.
The Company also updated its projections for fiscal 2013. Given the results of the first quarter, the Company's revised forecast includes sales of $2.62 billion, a net earnings range of $160 million to $165 million and a range of $3.50 to $3.60 for earnings per share. The midpoint of the range, at $3.55, represents a 7% increase in EPS.
"We're off to a slow start in 2013," said John Scannell, CEO. "The weakness in the major economies around the world is affecting our industrial business. On the other hand, the aircraft market is strong. We have moderated our forecast for the year slightly but we are still projecting growth in both sales and earnings in 2013, despite the headwinds in our industrial markets."

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance.
