On September 20, 2019, TransDigm completed the divestiture of its Esterline Interface Technologies (EIT) group of businesses to an affiliate of KPS Capital Partners, LP for approximately $190 million. On July 21, 2019 TransDigm received a binding offer pursuant to a put option agreement from Eaton Corporation plc (NYSE:ETN) for the acquisition by Eaton of Souriau-Sunbank Connection Technologies (Souriau-Sunbank) in a transaction valued at approximately $920 million. The transaction is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of calendar 2019. Accordingly, the EIT and Souriau-Sunbank results are presented as discontinued operations, and as such, $126.6 million of net sales and $25.5 million of EBITDA As Defined are excluded from continuing operations for the quarter. Net sales of $294.0 million and $63.3 million of EBITDA As Defined are excluded for the full fiscal year. Both EIT and Souriau-Sunbank were acquired by TransDigm in March 2019 as part of the Esterline Technologies acquisition.
The acquisition of Esterline as well as the associated financing, the subsequent divestiture of EIT, and the expected divestiture of Souriau-Sunbank significantly impacted certain year-over-year comparisons.
Net sales for the quarter rose 46.9%, or $491.9 million, to $1,541.3 million from $1,049.4 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 8.0%. Acquisition sales contributed $407.6 million, substantially all from Esterline.
Net income from continuing operations for the quarter increased 37.2% to $316.0 million, or $4.08 per share, compared to $230.3 million, or $4.14 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase in net income from continuing operations primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above partially offset by higher operating costs attributable to Esterline, as well as higher interest expense.
