Highlight of Business Operations:Both the Fabrication and Distribution Groups access the Titanium Group as their primary source of titanium mill products. For the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009 approximately 49%, 38%, and 53%, respectively, of the Titanium Groups sales were to the Fabrication and Distribution Groups. The increase in sales to the Fabrication and Distribution Groups in 2011 was primarily due to strengthening demand from the commercial aerospace and defense industries for the Distribution Groups titanium products, increasing its demand for mill products from the Titanium Group.
Excluding the $15.4 million payment recognized in the prior year related to the resolution of Airbus 2009 contractual obligations, the Titanium Groups net sales increased $33.2 million. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in prime mill product shipments to trade customers to 7.7 million pounds in 2011 from 6.6 million pounds in 2010, coupled with an increase in average realized selling prices to $17.53 per pound in 2011 compared to $16.05 per pound in 2010. The increasing build rates by both Boeing and Airbus drove the increased mill product volume. The primary driver for the increase in average realized selling prices was that the 2011 mix combined a higher percentage of flat products which generally carry higher overall prices relative to forged products. Additionally, ferro-alloy net sales increased by $3.5 million due to higher demand from our specialty steel customers.
Excluding the $4.2 million of nonrecurring engineering funds received related to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner® program that were previously paid by the customer, the Fabrication Groups net sales increased $24.0 million compared to 2009. The nonrecurring engineering funds were received to offset certain agreed upon tooling expenses to support the Boeing 787 Dreamliner® program. A corresponding amount was recorded in cost of sales during the current year. The increase in the Fabrication Groups net sales was principally the result of a $29.6 million increase in commercial aerospace sales, primarily driven by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner® Pi Box program ramp-up as well as other Boeing programs. Additionally, the Company completed several engineered components to support the containment of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. These favorable impacts were partially offset by a decline in our military shipments as the F-22, C-17, and other programs continued to wind down.
