Highlights:

- Net income of $48.7 million was up 22%, resulting in $0.48 per diluted share, versus $39.8 million and $0.39 last year, respectively.

Chief Executive Officer Comments

Mr. Stanage commented, “This was another strong quarter for Hexcel, as solid execution combined with increased sales to yield excellent results. For the quarter, our adjusted diluted EPS of $0.48 was 23% higher than last year on a 4% increase in constant currency sales. We are also particularly pleased that our adjusted operating income was 16.7% of net sales for the quarter, 140 basis points better than last year.”

Looking ahead, Mr. Stanage said, “While there is some concern that our customers will reduce year-end inventories, we expect aerospace sales (both Commercial Aerospace and Space & Defense) to continue their steady growth trend. Though challenging Industrial sales have limited our top line growth, strong operational performance allows us to raise our 2013 earnings guidance.”
