Ducommun to Record Third Quarter 2015 Charges

Reading time ( words)

Ducommun Inc. expects to recognize $22.7 million in one-time pretax charges during the third quarter of 2015, comprising the following: a $10.0 million charge for a regional jet program in the Ducommun AeroStructures segment, reflecting estimated cost overruns for the remaining contractual period; a previously disclosed $11.9 million loss on extinguishment of debt related to refinancing the company’s debt; and $0.8 million of restructuring charges, reflecting costs associated with organizational realignments and the closure of two facilities.

Total after-tax charges are expected to be $14.3 million, or approximately $1.28 per diluted share. The company expects to realize annualized savings of approximately $15.0 million on the refinancing of the Company’s debt and approximately $2.0 million to $3.0 million by the facility closures.

With regard to the charge on the regional jet program, Anthony J. Reardon, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, stated, “This action reflects the remainder of the contract, through 2016, as we have not reached agreement on sufficient price adjustments with the customer. We have been unable to reduce costs sufficiently to meet our targets and, therefore, the program remains unprofitable.

“We are streamlining our operations and consolidating certain facilities and functions to reduce costs and enhance margins, resulting in the associated restructuring charge. We continue to strategically review our overall footprint – as well as our product portfolio – and are taking additional actions to operate more efficiently and ensure long-term growth and sustainable margins.”

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
