Chairman and CEO Michael S. Lipscomb stated, “Our operations team has done an excellent job of addressing the challenges that the Company faced in the first half of the year. The Company’s results in Q3 reflect the highest quarterly sales and gross margin percentage year to date. If you adjust for the $1.8 million in transaction costs we booked in Q3 related to the C*Blade acquisition, the Company also realized its highest quarterly net income on a year to date basis. While we know there are continued challenges in our businesses, we’re confident that the improvements that we saw in Q3 will continue into Q4. We also look forward to the added benefit of having C*Blade as part of the SIFCO family.”
