Kadant Inc reported revenues from continuing operations of $85.9 million in the first quarter of 2008, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 3 percent, compared to $88.2 million in the first quarter of 2007. The 2008 period included a $4.5 million, or 5 percent, increase from foreign currency translation and the 2007 period included $1.2 million in revenues from the Casting Products business that was sold in April 2007.

Excluding these items, revenues decreased $5.6 million, or 7 percent, in the first quarter of 2008 compared to the 2007 period. Operating income from continuing operations in the 2008 quarter increased 2 percent to $7.6 million versus $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2007.

This increase included a net gain from restructuring costs and other income of $0.5 million, most of which was associated with a gain on the sale of assets. Income from continuing operations (after-tax) was $5.1 million in the first quarter of 2008, or $.36 of diluted earnings per share (EPS), versus income of $4.7 million, or $.33 of diluted EPS, a year ago. Including the discontinued operation, net income in the first quarter of 2008 was $5.1 million, or $.36 per diluted share, versus $4.3 million, or $.30 per diluted share, in the 2007 quarter.

“Although our revenues were slightly below our guidance for the quarter, we were able to exceed the top end of our earnings guidance by 4 cents per diluted share,” said William A. Rainville, chairman and chief executive officer of Kadant.
