NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the three months ended March 30, 2012 and April 1, 2011
(Unaudited)


1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The December 31, 2011, condensed consolidated balance sheet amounts have been derived from the previously audited consolidated balance sheet of Kaman Corporation and subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”), but do not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In the opinion of management, the remainder of the condensed financial information reflects all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature, unless otherwise disclosed in this report. Certain amounts in the prior period condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to current presentation. The statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of trends or of results to be expected for the entire year.

The Company has a calendar year-end; however, its first three fiscal quarters follow a 13-week convention, with each quarter ending on a Friday. The first quarter for 2012 and 2011 ended on March 30, 2012 and April 1, 2011, respectively.

Pension Accounting

In 2011 the Company elected to change its method of recognizing pension expense. Previously, for its non-contributory qualified defined benefit pension plan ("Qualified Pension Plan") the Company used the market-related value of plan assets reflecting changes in the fair value of plan assets amortized over a four-year period. Under the new accounting method, the market-related value of plan assets reflects the actual change in the fair value of plan assets for the year. While the historical policy of recognizing pension expense is considered acceptable under U.S. GAAP, the Company believes that the new policy is preferable as it eliminates the delay in recognition of the change in fair value of plan assets for the calculation of market-related value of plan assets.

The impacts of all adjustments made to the condensed consolidated financial statements are summarized below:

2. RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (ASC Topic 220) - Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” ASU No. 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of equity and requires an entity to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The amendments are effective retrospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The guidance requires changes in presentation only and was adopted by the Company this quarter.

4. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

The following table presents the carrying value and fair value of financial instruments that are not carried at fair value at March 30, 2012, and December 31, 2011:

$
233,098

 
$
261,967

 
$
203,522

 
$
218,048


The above fair values were computed based on quoted market prices and discounted future cash flows, as applicable. Differences from carrying values are attributable to interest rate changes subsequent to when the transaction occurred. The fair values of Cash and cash equivalents, Accounts receivable, net, Notes payable, and Accounts payable - trade approximate their carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

The Company uses a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. This hierarchy requires us to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:
 
Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 — Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for markets that are not active or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The table below segregates all financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis (at least annually) into the most appropriate level within the fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used to determine their fair value at the measurement date:

The Company’s derivative instruments are foreign exchange contracts that are measured at fair value using observable market inputs such as forward rates and our counterparties’ credit risks. Based on these inputs, the derivative instruments are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy and have been included in other current assets and other assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. Based on the continued ability to trade and enter into forward contracts, we consider the markets for our fair value instruments to be active.

The Company evaluated the credit risk associated with the counterparties to these derivative instruments and determined that as of March 30, 2012, such credit risks have not had an adverse impact on the fair value of these instruments.

The Company’s contingent consideration liability, included in Other accruals and payables and Other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, is associated with the acquisition of Target Electronic Supply ("Target"). This liability was measured at fair value based on the potential payments of the liability associated with the unobservable input of the estimated post-acquisition financial results of Target through 2014 and, therefore, is a Level 3 liability. The table below presents a rollforward of the instruments valued using Level 3 inputs:

5. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Derivatives Overview

The Company is exposed to certain risks relating to its ongoing business operations, including market risks relating to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Derivative financial instruments are recognized on the consolidated balance sheets as either assets or liabilities and are measured at fair value. Changes in the fair values of derivatives are recorded each period in earnings or accumulated other comprehensive income, depending on whether a derivative is effective as part of a hedged transaction. Gains and losses on derivative instruments reported in accumulated other comprehensive income are subsequently included in earnings in the periods in which earnings are affected by the hedged item. The Company does not use derivative instruments for speculative purposes.

5. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (CONTINUED)

Derivatives Overview- Continued

The Company holds forward exchange contracts designed to hedge forecasted transactions denominated in foreign currencies and to minimize the impact of foreign currency fluctuations on the Company’s earnings and cash flows. Some of these contracts were designated as cash flow hedges. The Company will include in earnings amounts currently included in accumulated other comprehensive income upon recognition of cost of sales related to the underlying transaction. During the first quarter of 2011 the loss of $0.2 million was reclassified to income from other comprehensive income for derivative instruments formerly designated as cash flow hedges. Over the next twelve months the income related to cash flow hedges expected to be reclassified from other comprehensive income is $0.1 million. No amounts were reclassified to income from other comprehensive income for derivative instruments formerly designated as cash flow hedges during the first quarter of 2012.

9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Legal Matters

Wichita Subpoena Matter

In 2011, the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas issued a grand jury subpoena to the Aerospace segment's Wichita facility regarding a government investigation of record keeping associated with the manufacture of certain composite parts. Management is cooperating with the government's investigation and believes that it has fully complied with all legal obligations in connection with the manufacture of the parts in question. At March 30, 2012, the Company had no amount accrued for this matter, as it is unable to estimate the amount of costs, if any, that might be incurred in connection with the resolution of this matter at this time. The Company believes that the likelihood of an adverse outcome to this matter is remote.


Other Matters

Revenue Sharing Agreement with the Commonwealth of Australia

The Company is actively engaged in efforts to resell the former Australia SH-2G(A) (now designated the SH-2G(I)) aircraft, spare parts and equipment to other potential customers. Pursuant to the terms of its revenue sharing agreement with the Commonwealth of Australia, the Company will share all proceeds from the resale of the aircraft, spare parts, and equipment with the Commonwealth on a predetermined basis, and total payments of at least $39.5 million (AUD) must be made to the Commonwealth regardless of sales. Cumulative payments of $33.1 million (AUD) have been made through March 30, 2012. An additional payment of $6.4 million (AUD) must be paid in March of 2013 to the extent that cumulative payments have not yet reached $39.5 million (AUD) at that date.

To secure these payments, the Company has provided the Commonwealth of Australia with an unconditional letter of credit, which is being reduced as such payments are made. The letter of credit balance at March 30, 2012, was $13.2 million which was reduced to $6.6 million subsequent to the end of the quarter. The letter of credit balance will continue to be reduced as payments are made to the Commonwealth of Australia. As of March 30, 2012, the U.S. dollar value of the remaining $6.4 million (AUD) required payment was $6.6 million, which is due in March 2013. In late 2008, the Company entered into foreign currency exchange contracts that limit the foreign currency risks associated with these required payments. These contracts will enable the Company to purchase $3.4 million (AUD) for $2.2 million. See Note 5, Derivative Financial Instruments, for further discussion of these instruments.

40 mm

The Orlando facility is one of five defendants in a qui tam suit under the False Claims Act brought by John D. King, a former employee of one of the other defendants. The case, United States ex rel. King v. DSE, Inc., et al., No. 9:08-cv-02416 (M.D. Fla.), is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. The United States Department of Justice has declined to intervene in the suit, and the case is being brought by Mr. King. The suit alleges that the Orlando facility knowingly submitted false claims or made false statements in connection with its work on 40 mm grenade programs. Management believes that it has fully complied with its legal obligations in connection with this program. At March 30, 2012, the Company had no amount accrued for this matter, as it is unable to estimate the amount of costs, if any, that might be incurred in connection with the resolution of this matter at this time. The Company believes that the likelihood of an adverse outcome to this matter is remote.

Moosup

This facility is currently being held for disposal. Site characterization of the environmental condition of the property, which began in 2008, is continuing.

Other Matters - Continued

Moosup - continued

The total anticipated cost of the environmental remediation activities associated with the Moosup property is $4.3 million, all of which has been accrued. The total amount paid to date in connection with these environmental remediation activities is $2.3 million. A portion ($0.2 million) of the accrual related to this property is included in other accruals and payables and the balance is included in other long-term liabilities. The remaining balance of the accrual reflects the total anticipated cost of completing these environmental remediation activities. Although it is reasonably possible that additional costs will be paid in connection with the resolution of this matter, the Company is unable to estimate the amount of such additional costs, if any, at this time.

New Hartford

In connection with the sale of the Company’s Music segment in 2007, the Company assumed responsibility for meeting certain requirements of the Connecticut Transfer Act (the “Transfer Act”) that applied to our transfer of the New Hartford, Connecticut, facility leased by that segment for guitar manufacturing purposes (“Ovation”). Under the Transfer Act, those responsibilities essentially consist of assessing the site's environmental conditions and remediating environmental impairments, if any, caused by Ovation's operations prior to the sale. The site is a multi-tenant industrial park, in which Ovation and other unrelated entities lease space. The environmental assessment process, which began in 2008, is still in process.

The Company's estimate of its portion of the cost to assess the environmental conditions and remediate this site is $2.2 million, unchanged from previously reported estimates, all of which has been accrued. The total amount paid to date in connection with these environmental remediation activities is $0.5 million. A portion ($0.5 million) of the accrual related to this property is included in other accruals and payables and the balance is included in other long-term liabilities. The remaining balance of the accrual reflects the total anticipated cost of completing these environmental remediation activities. Although it is reasonably possible that additional costs will be paid in connection with the resolution of this matter, the Company is unable to estimate the amount of such additional costs, if any, at this time.

Bloomfield

In connection with the Company’s 2008 purchase of the portion of the Bloomfield campus that Kaman Aerospace Corporation had leased from NAVAIR, the Company assumed responsibility for environmental remediation at the facility as may be required under the Transfer Act and continues the effort to define the scope of the remediation that will be required by the CTDEP. The assumed environmental liability of $10.3 million was determined by taking the undiscounted estimated remediation liability of $20.8 million and discounting it at a rate of 8%. This remediation process will take many years to complete. The total amount paid to date in connection with these environmental remediation activities is $3.9 million. A portion ($2.1 million) of the accrual related to this property is included in other accruals and payables, and the balance is included in other long-term liabilities. Although it is reasonably possible that additional costs will be paid in connection with the resolution of this matter, the Company is unable to estimate the amount of such additional costs, if any, at this time.

United Kingdom

In connection with the purchase of U.K. Composites, the Company accrued, at the time of acquisition, £1.6 million for environmental compliance at the facilities. The remaining balance of the accrual at March 30, 2012 was £0.7 million, with £0.7 million having been paid to date in connection with these environmental remediation activities and £0.2 million released to income. The U.S. dollar equivalent of the remaining environmental compliance liability as of March 30, 2012, is $1.1 million, which is included in other accruals and payables. The Company continues to assess the work that may be required, which may result in a change to this accrual. Although it is reasonably possible that additional costs will be paid in connection with the resolution of this matter, the Company is unable to estimate the amount of such additional costs, if any, at this time.

10. COMPUTATION OF EARNINGS PER SHARE

The computation of basic earnings per share is based on net earnings divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for each year. The computation of diluted earnings per share includes the common stock equivalency of dilutive options granted to employees under the Stock Incentive Plan.

Excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation for the three months ended March 30, 2012, and April 1, 2011, respectively, are 343,930 and 380,183 shares of equity awards granted to employees that are anti-dilutive based on the average stock price.

Shares issuable under the Convertible Notes were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation for the periods ended March 30, 2012 and April 1, 2011 because the conversion price was greater than the average market price of our stock during the period. Excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation for the periods ended March 30, 2012 and April 1, 2011 are 3,393,665 and 3,386,739 shares, respectively, issuable under the warrants sold in connection with the Company’s convertible note offering as they would be anti-dilutive.

Key events
We have signed a memorandum of agreement ("MOA") for the next multi-year contract on the Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter cockpit program, which will allow us to continue to perform work under this program through 2017.
During 2011 Parker Hannifin Corporation ("Parker") recognized us nationally as a value-added reseller of Parker hydraulics, fluid connector and automation products. The integration has progressed during the first quarter of 2012 and has brought us full access to the Parker motion technologies portfolio of products across our U.S. locations.
We delivered 4,422 fuzes under our Joint Programmable Fuze ("JPF") program with the U.S. Government during the first quarter of 2012, more than the number of fuzes delivered during the first quarter of 2011. However, we experienced JPF lot acceptance test failures that required us to suspend lot acceptance testing and fuze deliveries. Our current findings and associated corrective actions related to the recent test failures have been reviewed with our customer and we anticipate that we will resume acceptance testing in May.
During the first quarter of 2012, we were awarded JPF orders totaling $31.1 million from the United States Air Force ("USAF") under Option 8.
During the fourth quarter of 2011, the U.S. Marine Corps deployed the Unmanned K-MAX® in Afghanistan. Through the first quarter of 2012 the Unmanned K-MAX® has successfully delivered more than 1.0 million pounds of supplies to forward operating bases and combat outposts.
Through March 30, 2012, we have made cumulative payments of $33.1 million (AUD) to the Commonwealth of Australia in accordance with our settlement agreement related to the SH-2G(A) Helicopters. Of this amount, $6.3 million (AUD) was paid in March 2012.
On March 27, 2012, we announced the retirement of Lowell J. Hill, Senior Vice President - Human Resources'. Greg T. Troy was appointed to the role of Senior Vice President - Human Resources following Mr. Hill's retirement.
On February 7, 2012, our common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

The increase in net sales for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 was attributable to an organic increase in sales in our Industrial Distribution segment and the contribution of sales from our 2011 acquisitions, partially offset by a decrease in sales in our Aerospace segment. Foreign currency exchange rates had a $1.0 million unfavorable impact on sales during the three months ended March 30, 2012. (See segment discussion below for additional information.)

Gross profit increased for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 primarily due to organic increases in gross profit at our Industrial Distribution segment and the contribution of gross profit from our 2011 acquisitions, offset by an organic decrease in our Aerospace segment.

The organic increase in gross profit in our Industrial Distribution segment was primarily the result of higher sales volume compared to the prior year. The organic decrease in gross profit in our Aerospace segment was due to lower gross profit on our JPF and other legacy fuze programs, lower volume of work on our unmanned K-MAX® aircraft system, fewer shipments of Sikorsky BLACK HAWK Helicopter Cockpits and the phase-out of joining and installation work under our Sikorsky offload program. These decreases in Aerospace were partially offset by increased volume on our bearing product lines and increased gross profit on our helicopter aftermarket work related to the Egypt upgrade program.

SG&A increased for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 primarily due to organic increases in expenses at our Industrial Distribution segment, increases in our Corporate expenses, and the addition of SG&A expenses from our 2011 acquisitions. These increases are offset by decreases in organic SG&A expenses at our Aerospace segment due to the absence of the legal fees associated with the settlement of the FMU-143 program litigation matters in 2011.

The organic increase at our Industrial Distribution segment was attributable to an increase in variable costs such as employee related costs. The increase in Corporate expenses was attributable to higher costs associated with an acquisition that we elected not to pursue and the absence of the non-recurring benefit of $2.4 million received in the first quarter of 2011 associated with the death of a former executive.

The decrease in interest expense, net for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 was primarily due to the lower interest rate on the revolving credit facility and term loan, offset by higher average borrowings. At March 30, 2012, the interest rate for the outstanding amounts on both the Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Agreement was 1.62% compared to 2.24% at April 1, 2011.

Net Sales

Net sales for three months ended March 30, 2012, increased as compared to the comparable period in 2011 due to a 9.6% increase in sales, when measured on a same day sales basis. Organic sales grew 3.3% when measured on a same day sales basis and our 2011 acquisitions contributed $14.6 million in sales during the quarter. The growth in organic sales is due to an increase in sales volume for our Original Equipment Manufacturer ("OEM") and Maintenance, Repair and Operations ("MRO") customers, offset by lower national account sales volume, including lower profit business we elected not to renew. By industry, sales increased in machinery manufacturing, durable goods, mining, and primary metal manufacturing. These increases were partially offset by declines in sales volume in the food, beverage and paper manufacturing industries.

Operating Income

Operating income for the three months ended March 30, 2012, increased versus the comparable period in 2011 due to increased sales volume and the resulting impact on our ability to leverage operating costs, higher gross margin and the contribution of operating income from our 2011 acquisitions. The increases were partially offset by higher employee related expenses primarily driven by significant increases in pension and group health costs.

Net sales

Net sales decreased for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 due to:

a decrease in sales volume on our legacy fuze programs;
an absence of commercial sales of the JPF fuze to foreign militaries;
lower volume on our helicopter offload programs, specifically the phase-out of joining and installation work under the Sikorsky offload program;
lower shipments under our Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter cockpit program;
lower volume of work on our unmanned K-MAX® aircraft system; and
a reduction in C-17 ship set deliveries due to a customer-driven reduction in volume.

These decreases were partially offset by:

an increase in sales volume on bearings products in the military, commercial and business / regional jet markets;
the incremental contribution of sales from the acquisition of Vermont Composites;
higher volume on our helicopter aftermarket programs, including the Egypt SH-2G(E) upgrade program and the K-MAX® fleet program;
increased shipments to the United States Government ("USG") of the JPF fuze despite lot acceptance test failures that required us to suspend lot acceptance testing and fuze deliveries during the quarter; and
increased shipments on the Boeing 777 program.



23


Operating Income

Operating income decreased for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 due to the lower sales volume mentioned above. Specifically, the lower volume of work on our unmanned K-MAX aircraft system, the customer-driven volume reductions under our Sikorsky BLACK HAWK programs and the timing of deliveries under our legacy fuze programs accounted for $6.5 million of the operating income reduction when compared to the first quarter of the prior year. In addition to the program related decreases, operating income was also impacted by higher employee related expenses associated with group health costs.

These decreases were partially offset by:

higher gross profit generated by our bearings products resulting from the increased sales volume noted above;
gross profit generated from the increased shipments of JPF fuzes to the USG; and
the absence of legal fees related to the settlement of the FMU-143 program litigation matters in 2011.

Backlog increased $25.5 million during the first quarter of 2012. This increase was driven by orders for our bearing products, new USG orders under our JPF program, and new orders for composite applications. These increases were offset by a reduction in the Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopters cockpit program backlog, which we expect will increase upon receipt of purchase orders under the next multi-year contract. See below for further discussion of this program.

Major Programs/Product Lines

Below is a discussion of the significant changes in the Aerospace segment's major programs during the first three months of 2012. Please see our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a complete discussion of our Aerospace segment's programs.

BLACK HAWK

The Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter cockpit program involves the manufacture of cockpits including the installation of all wiring harnesses, hydraulic assemblies, control pedals and sticks, seat tracks, pneumatic lines, and the composite structure that holds the windscreen for most models of the BLACK HAWK helicopter. During the first quarter of 2012 we delivered 35 cockpits compared to 45 cockpits in the first quarter of 2011, due to a reduction in the requirements of our customer. We have signed an MOA for the next multi-year contract for this program, which will allow us to continue to perform work under this program through 2017. Orders placed to date for the program will allow us to continue deliveries through 2012.

FMU-152 – Joint Programmable Fuze (“JPF”)

We manufacture the JPF, an electro-mechanical bomb safe and arming device, which allows the settings of a weapon to be programmed in flight. During 2009, we entered into a contract modification with the USG for the award of Options 6, 7 and 8 under our multi-option JPF contract. During the first quarter of 2012, we were awarded orders totaling $31.1 million from the USAF under Option 8. Total JPF backlog at March 30, 2012, is $140.7 million, which is scheduled to be delivered into 2014.

During the first quarter of 2012, we experienced JPF lot acceptance test failures that required us to suspend lot acceptance testing and fuze deliveries. A total of 4,422 fuzes passed acceptance testing and were delivered to our customer during the quarter, which was short of our goal of 5,000 fuzes but higher than the prior year quarter. The product line continues to perform above contract requirements for lot acceptance and operational reliability has been in excess of 99%. We occasionally experience lot acceptance test failures due to the complexity of the product and the extreme parameters of the acceptance test, which occurred during the first quarter. Unlike many other product lines, when an acceptance failure occurs, testing and delivery are halted until a root cause is identified and a corrective action plan is implemented. Given the maturity of the product, we now generally experience isolated failures, rather than systematic ones. As a result, identifying a root cause can take longer and result in less smooth delivery performance from quarter to quarter. There were two recent test failures; the first appears to be an isolated problem in a supplied component, where a small amount of contamination caused a circuit

24


interruption, while the second appears to be a minor failure related to electrical contacts. Despite these failures, we have been able to continue production at the subassembly level, which will allow us to implement any required process changes and still return to acceptance testing quickly. In addition, we have more than adequate production and test capacity over the next several quarters to meet our plan for the year. Our findings with respect to the most recent test failures and associated corrective actions were reviewed with our customer and we anticipate that we will resume acceptance testing in May.

Other Matters

SH-2G(I)

We have experienced increased levels of interest regarding the SH-2G(I) aircraft and have received small orders for the spare parts and related equipment. We continue to work closely with potential customers for the sale of the 11 SH-2G(I) aircraft, spare parts and equipment.


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Discussion and Analysis of Cash Flows

We assess liquidity in terms of our ability to generate cash to fund working capital and investing and financing activities. Significant factors affecting liquidity include: cash flows generated from or used by operating activities, capital expenditures, investments in our business segments and their programs, acquisitions, divestitures, dividends, availability of future credit, adequacy of available bank lines of credit, and factors that might otherwise affect the company's business and operations generally, as described under the heading “Risk Factors” and “Forward-Looking Statements” in Item 1A of Part I of our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

We continue to rely upon bank financing as an important source of liquidity for our business activities including acquisitions. We believe this, when combined with cash generated from operating activities, will be sufficient to support our anticipated cash requirements for the foreseeable future. However, we may decide to raise additional debt or equity capital to support other business activities including potential future acquisitions. We anticipate our capital expenditures will be approximately $30.0 to $35.0 million in 2012, primarily related to machinery and equipment, facility renovations and information technology infrastructure.

We anticipate a variety of items will have an impact on our liquidity during the next 12 months, in addition to our working capital requirements. These include one or more of following:

the matters described in Note 9, Commitments and Contingencies, in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, including;
the revenue sharing arrangement with the Commonwealth of Australia; and
the cost of existing environmental remediation matters;
required contributions to our qualified pension plan and Supplemental Employees’ Retirement Plan (“SERP”); or
the extension of payment terms by our customers.

However, we do not believe any of these matters will lead to a shortage of capital resources or liquidity that would prevent us from continuing with our business operations as expected.

We regularly monitor credit market conditions to identify potential issues that may adversely affect, or provide opportunities for, the securing and/or pricing of additional financing, if any, that may be necessary to continue with our growth strategy and finance working capital requirements.

Management regularly monitors its pension plan asset performance and the assumptions used in the determination of our benefit obligation, comparing them to actual performance. We continue to believe the assumptions selected are valid due to the long-term nature of our benefit obligation.


25


Pursuant to the terms of the revenue sharing agreement with the Commonwealth of Australia, we will share all proceeds from the resale of the SH-2G(I), formerly SH-2G(A), aircraft, spare parts, and equipment with the Commonwealth on a predetermined basis. Minimum payments of at least $39.5 million (AUD) must be made to the Commonwealth regardless of sales. Cumulative payments of $33.1 million (AUD) have been made through March 30, 2012. An additional payment of $6.4 million (AUD) must be made in March of 2013 to the extent that cumulative payments have not yet reached $39.5 million(AUD) at that date.

To secure these payments, we have provided the Commonwealth with an unconditional letter of credit, which is being reduced as such payments are made. As of March 30, 2012, the U.S. dollar value of the remaining $6.4 million (AUD) required payment was $6.6 million, which is due in March 2013. In 2008, we entered into foreign currency exchange contracts that limit the foreign currency risks associated with these required payments. These contracts will enable the Company to purchase $3.4 million (AUD) for $2.2 million. See Note 5, Derivative Financial Instruments, of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, for further discussion of these instruments.

(a) Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less expenditures for property, plant and equipment, both of which are presented on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. See Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Non-GAAP Financial Measures.

Net cash used by operating activities increased $9.8 million for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 primarily due to the following:

a decrease in net earnings due to lower operating income at our Aerospace segment;
higher inventory-related production expenditures at our Aerospace segment; and
lower cash receipts as compared to the prior year from counterparties upon settlement of our Australian dollar foreign currency exchange contract.
 
These were partially offset by:

Our second guaranteed payment to the Commonwealth of Australia being less than the payment made in the prior year; and
a lower contribution to our qualified pension plan.

Net cash used in investing activities decreased $0.2 million for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011 primarily due to a decrease of $1.9 million in cash used for the purchase of property, plant and equipment, offset by the absence of $2.2 million cash received during the first quarter of 2011 from a life insurance policy.

Net cash provided by financing activities increased $26.9 million for the three months ended March 30, 2012, versus the comparable period in 2011, primarily due to an increase in borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement of $27.2 million for working capital requirements.


26


Financing Arrangements
 
We maintain a Revolving Credit Agreement expiring September 20, 2014. The Revolving Credit Agreement includes an “accordion” feature that allows us to increase the aggregate amount available to $350.0 million, subject to additional commitments from lenders. The Revolving Credit Agreement may be used for working capital, letters of credit and other general corporate purposes, including acquisitions. We also maintain a $42.5 million Term Loan Agreement with a four-year term, which is in addition to our current Revolving Credit Agreement. Principal payments, which started in the third quarter of 2010, of $1.25 million are due quarterly, with $22.5 million of the initial aggregate principal payable in the final quarter of the Term Loan Agreement. We may increase the term loan by up to an aggregate of $50 million with additional commitments from the banks or new commitments from acceptable financial institutions.

Interest rates on amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Agreement and the Term Loan Agreement are variable. At March 30, 2012, the interest rate for the outstanding amounts on both the Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Agreement was 1.62%. At December 31, 2011, the interest rate for the outstanding amounts on both the Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Agreement was 1.68%.

The financial covenants associated with the Revolving Credit Agreement and Term Loan Agreement include a requirement that (i) the ratio of Consolidated Senior Secured Indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement, cannot be greater than 3.50 to 1.00, (ii) the ratio of Consolidated Total Indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement, cannot be greater than 4.00 to 1.00, and (iii) the ratio of Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement, to the sum of (a) all interest, premium payments, debt discounts, fees, charges and related expenses and (b) the portion of rent expense under capital leases that is treated as interest expense cannot be less than 4.00 to 1.00. We were in compliance with those financial covenants as of and for the quarter ended March 30, 2012, and we do not anticipate noncompliance in the foreseeable future.

Total average bank borrowings during the quarter ended March 30, 2012, were $126.9 million compared to $57.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. This increase is attributable to the acquisitions we completed in 2011 and working capital requirements during the first quarter of 2012. As of March 30, 2012, and December 31, 2011, there was $161.4 million and $191.7 million available for borrowing, respectively, under the Revolving Credit Agreement, net of letters of credit. Letters of credit are generally considered borrowings for purposes of the Revolving Credit Agreement. A total of $18.2 million and $18.3 million in letters of credit was outstanding under the Revolving Credit Agreement as of March 30, 2012, and December 31,
2011, respectively. At March 30, 2012, and December 31, 2011, $13.2 million and $13.1 million of our letters of credit, respectively, related to the guaranteed minimum payments to Australia in connection with the ownership transfer of the 11 SH-2G(A) helicopters (along with spare parts and associated equipment). The letter of credit balance related to the amount due to the Commonwealth of Australia was reduced from $13.2 million at March 30, 2012, to $6.6 million subsequent to the end of the quarter. The letter of credit balance will continue to be reduced as payments are made to Australia.

Other Sources/Uses of Capital

We expect to contribute $10.0 million to the qualified pension plan and $0.5 million to the SERP for the 2012 plan year. Of these amounts $5.0 million and $0.1 million, respectively, had been contributed as of March 30, 2012. For the 2011 plan year, we contributed $19.6 million to the qualified pension plan and $4.4 million to the SERP.

In November 2000, our Board of Directors approved a replenishment of our stock repurchase program, providing for repurchase of an aggregate of 1.4 million common shares for use in administration of our stock plans and for general corporate purposes. There were no shares repurchased under this program during the first three months of 2012. At March 30, 2012, approximately 1.0 million shares remained authorized for repurchase under this program.

On June 26, 2009, we filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures used in this report on Form 10-Q provide investors with important perspectives into our ongoing business performance.  We do not intend for the information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures.  Other companies may define the measures differently. We define the non-GAAP measures used in this report and other disclosures, as follows:

Organic Sales per Sales Day

Organic sales per sales day is defined as GAAP “Net sales from the Industrial Distribution segment” less sales derived from acquisitions completed during the preceding twelve months divided by the number of sales days in a given period.  Sales days are the number of business days that the Industrial Distribution segment’s branch locations were open for business and exclude weekends and holidays.  Management believes sales per sales day provides investors with an important perspective on how net sales may be impacted by the number of days the segment is open for business.  Management uses organic sales per sales day as a measurement to compare periods in which the numbers of sales days differ.  

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is defined as GAAP “Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities” less “Expenditures for property, plant & equipment”, both of which are presented in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Management believes free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available for dividends to shareholders, debt repayment, and acquisitions after making capital investments required to support ongoing business operations and long-term value creation.  Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as it excludes certain mandatory expenditures such as repayment of maturing debt.  Management uses free cash flow internally to assess both business performance and overall liquidity.

CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS AND OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

There have been no material changes outside the ordinary course of business in our contractual obligations or off-balance sheet arrangements during the first three months of 2012. Please see our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a discussion of our contractual obligations and off-balance sheet arrangements.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

Preparation of the company’s financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Management believes the most complex and sensitive judgments, because of their significance to the consolidated financial statements, result primarily from the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. Management’s Discussion and Analysis and the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K describe the significant accounting estimates and policies used in preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements. Actual results in these areas could differ from management’s estimates. There have been no significant changes in the Company's critical accounting policies and significant estimates in 2012.

RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Information regarding recent changes in accounting standards is included in Note 2, Recent Accounting Standards, of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

There have been no significant changes in the company’s exposure to market risk during the first quarter of 2012. Please see the company’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K, for a discussion of the company’s exposure to market risk.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company has carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 30, 2012. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. Based upon our evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of March 30, 2012, the disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Controls
There were no changes in internal controls over financial reporting at the company that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
