·      Fourth quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.49 compared to $0.52 last year

·      Fourth quarter cash flow from operations of $72 million

·      Record annual sales of $1,424 million and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.92

WOOD DALE, ILLINOIS (July 14, 2009) — AAR (NYSE: AIR) today reported fiscal year 2009 fourth quarter consolidated sales of $371.7 million and income from continuing operations of $20.5 million, or $0.49 diluted earnings per share.  Sales decreased 5% from $391.7 million reported in the fourth quarter of last year, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 6%. Fourth quarter results include a $10.1 million impairment charge related to inventory acquired before September 11, 2001 and a $1.4 million loss on the sale of marketable securities.  Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 also include a $10.0 million gain on the early extinguishment of debt.


Fourth quarter sales to defense customers increased 7% over the prior year and represented 44% of total sales.  The increase in sales to defense customers was principally attributable to higher shipments of mobility systems products and growth at the Company’s defense logistics business. Sales to commercial customers declined 13% due to lower demand for the Company’s products and services as a result of pressure from lower passenger and freight traffic combined with airline inventory de-stocking.


For the Company’s fiscal year 2009, sales were $1,424.0 million, an increase of 3% over the prior year and income from continuing operations increased 6% to $80.6 million, or $1.92 per diluted share.


 “In the midst of a deep global recession and disrupted credit markets, AAR achieved record annual sales, earnings and operating cash flow and significantly reduced its debt obligations, while making strategic investments in the Company’s growth prospects,” said David P. Storch, Chairman
