“I am pleased to report during the period we demonstrated very good performance at all levels of the operating statements,” said Michael J. Hartnett, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This resulted from outstanding expense control and execution coupled with an expansion of demand for industrial products. Customer requirements for aircraft products were stable and at the levels we expected. Clearly we see this quarter as a turning point and foreshadows a positive outlook for our fiscal 2022 as the economy recovers from the pandemic.”

Other operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $3.3 million compared to $2.5 million for the same period last year.

The current quarter income tax expense included $1.0 million of tax benefits from share-based stock compensation. Income tax expense for the same period last year was impacted by $0.9 million of benefit from share-based stock compensation and $0.6 million of discrete tax benefit due to a decrease in the reserves for unrecognized tax positions pertaining primarily to the statute of limitations expiration.

 

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $21.6 million compared to $30.5 million for the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, net income was $22.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $30.4 million for the same period last year.
