Business Group Results

Autocam Precision Components

Net sales for the third quarter of 2017 were $81.7 million, compared to $80.5 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 1.5% or $1.2 million. Growth related to our Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) automotive business accounted for the increase. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter decreased $1.4 million to $9.7 million, compared to $11.1 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Mr. Holder commented, “Autocam continues to take share and outgrow its CAFE end market. During the quarter we had several program wins that required immediate investments due to the short project launch requirements. These investments had a small near term impact on their profitability.”

Precision Engineered Products

Net sales for the third quarter of 2017 were $66.5 million, compared to $66.2 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.3 million. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $13.3 million, compared to $15.2 million in 2016.

Mr. Holder commented, “The impacts of the hurricanes during the third quarter had a negative effect on our profitability as we were unable to ship to several of our customers. We expect this to resolve in the fourth quarter.”

Mr. Holder concluded, “The third quarter was another transformative period for the organization as we divested our PBC business. Additionally, our performance this quarter was negatively impacted by weather delays within the business. We expect these anomalies to our performance to normalize in the fourth quarter.”
