07:00 EDTLLLL-3 Communications says book-to-bill ratio gives confidence in 2015 estimates
CEO Michael Strianese commented, “The fundamental growth drivers of our business remained strong during the first quarter as demonstrated by all four of our segments delivering book-to-bill ratios of greater than 1.0x. However, our results for the quarter were below our expectations and were negatively impacted by additional cost growth on international head-of-state aircraft modification contracts in the Platform Systems business of our Aerospace Systems segment. Accordingly, in order to strengthen the Platform Systems management, improve its program performance and enhance its competitiveness, we recently integrated the business into our ISR Systems sector. Additionally, we anticipate opportunities elsewhere in Aerospace Systems later this year that will improve the segment’s results. Despite these challenges, we continued to execute our strategy, capturing key new business wins during the quarter, which resulted in strong funded orders of $2.9 billion and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.06x.”
