Highlight of Business Operations:

Operating income for the second quarter of 2010 increased 19% from the second quarter of 2009. Operating income for the second quarter of 2010 was favorably impacted by a richer revenue mix and improved operating efficiencies. Operating income was negatively impacted in the second quarter of 2010 by $1,131,000, or 1.7 percentage points due to the continuation of 2010 start-up and development costs for several new programs which generated approximately $2,831,000 in sales, higher expenses from the amortization of intangible assets and higher stock-based compensation expenses. In addition, operating income for the second quarter of 2010 was favorably impacted by an adjustment to operating expenses of approximately $1,144,000, or 1.1 percentage points, relating to the reversal of certain accounts payable accruals recorded in prior periods. The Company assessed the materiality of this reversal and concluded it was immaterial to previously reported annual and interim amounts. Operating income for the second quarter of 2009 was adversely impacted by an inventory valuation adjustment of $782,000, or 0.8 percentage points.

At July 3, 2010, trade receivables from Boeing, Raytheon, United Technologies and the United States government were $13,096,000, $4,322,000, $3,797,000 and $720,000, respectively. The sales and receivables relating to Boeing, Raytheon, United Technologies and the United States government are diversified over a number of different commercial, space and military programs.

relating to the reversal of certain accounts payable accruals recorded in prior periods. During the second quarter of 2010, the Company determined that certain accounts payables that were accrued during the period from 2004 to 2009, in fact had been paid or were not otherwise owed to suppliers. The Company assessed the materiality of this reversal and concluded it was immaterial to previously reported annual and interim amounts. Gross profit for the six months of 2009 was negatively impacted by $5,141,000, or 2.4 percentage points of sales, due to an inventory reserve of $4,359,000 related to the Eclipse Aviation Corporation bankruptcy filing in March 2009 and an inventory valuation adjustment of $782,000.

Net cash used in operating activities for the six months of 2010 and 2009 was $9,330,000 and $15,069,000, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities for the six months of 2010 was impacted by an increase in accounts and unbilled receivables of $5,656,000 primarily related to the timing of billings to customers and extension of payments by the customers, a reduction in accrued and other liabilities of $8,764,000 (consisting primarily of a $6,428,000 decrease in accrued bonuses, a $2,153,000 reduction in customer deposits and $183,000 reduction in other accrued liabilities), a decrease in accounts payable of $5,541,000 and an increase in inventory of $6,328,000 primarily related to a reduction in customer progress payments.

Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months of 2010 of $4,421,000 included approximately $3,078,000 of repayment of borrowings, $1,572,000 of dividend payments, partially offset by $220,000 of cash receipts related to the exercise of stock options.

At July 3, 2010, the Company had $98,450,000 of unused lines of credit, after deducting $450,000 for outstanding standby letters of credit. The Company had outstanding loans of $21,100,000 and was in compliance with all covenants at July 3, 2010.
