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 true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

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...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
