Hartnett, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We enter fiscal 2021 from a position of strength, with a healthy backlog, ample liquidity and a strong balance sheet.

Sale of Houston Building

 

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company sold its manufacturing building located in Houston, TX that was associated with a previously closed facility. The Company sold the building for approximately $8.0 million and recorded a book gain of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

 

COVID-19

 

The COVID-19 health crisis, which was declared a pandemic in March 2020, has led to governments around the world implementing measures to reduce the spread. These measures include quarantines, “shelter in place” orders, travel restrictions, and other measures and have resulted in a slowdown of worldwide economic activity.

 

Our business is operating as an essential business, and as such, our facilities have remained open, with the exception of a few temporary closures at some of our international locations. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted our commercial aerospace and industrial sales in March of our fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. During this period, our commercial aerospace sales also faced headwinds associated with build rate changes on the Boeing 737 MAX.

 

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, we did not experience significant disruptions in our supply chain or with our customers as a result of COVID-19. We anticipate that our production and sales in fiscal 2021 will be negatively affected by the economic implications of the pandemic. Commercial aerospace OEM and aftermarket, which make up approximately half of our sales annually, will be impacted by the decline in air travel and changes in production rates. Our sales to defense markets, which represent approximately one quarter of total sales, will grow over the next year. Our sales to industrial markets will be adversely affected in the first two quarters of fiscal 2021 due to the slowdown of economic activity. We expect to see demand increasing as “shelter in place” directives are eliminated. Management is continuously evaluating the status of our orders and operations, and restructuring efforts are being implemented where necessary to align our cost structure to the new demand levels we experience in the marketplace.

The Company ended the year with total debt of $23.0 million and is in full compliance with all covenants under its credit agreements.

 

Outlook for the First Quarter Fiscal 2021
