Prior to the current quarter, on March 14, 2019, TransDigm completed the acquisition of Esterline Technologies Corporation (NYSE:ESL), a supplier of products to the global aerospace and defense industry in a transaction valued at approximately $4 billion in total consideration.
Also prior to the current quarter, on February 13, 2019, TransDigm completed the private offering of $4.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 6.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2026. The net proceeds of the $4.0 billion secured notes were used to fund the purchase price of the Esterline acquisition and to allow for substantial near term financial flexibility.
The acquisition of Esterline and the associated financing described above significantly impacted certain year-over-year comparisons.
Net sales for the quarter rose 69.1%, or $677.6 million, to $1,658.3 million from $980.7 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 11.8%. Acquisition sales contributed $561.4 million, of which $545.3 million were from Esterline.
Net income from continuing operations for the quarter decreased 33.5% to $144.5 million, or $2.57 per share, compared to $217.4 million, or $3.91 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase in net sales described above was offset primarily by higher operating costs and acquisition-related expenses attributable to Esterline, as well as higher interest expense and effective tax rate related to the new debt.
