The Hallwood Group Incorporated reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

For the quarter, net income was $5.3 million, or $3.44 per share, compared to net income of $3.0 million, or $1.94 per share, in 2009, on revenue of $47.2 million and $39.7 million, respectively.

Following is a comparison of results for the 2010 and 2009 quarters:

Operating Income. The operating income for the 2010 and 2009 quarters, primarily from textile products operations, was $8.2 million and $4.8 million, respectively. The increase was principally due to an increase in sales of specialty fabric to U.S. military contractors as a result of increases in orders from the military to Brookwood's customers, as well as increased sales in the commercial market segment, sail cloth and flag products. Sales of specialty fabric to U.S. military contractors accounted for $34,657,000 and $28,394,000 in the 2010 and 2009 first quarters, which represented 73.5% and 71.6% of Brookwood's sales, respectively.

Other Income (Loss). Other income (loss) consists of interest expense, and interest and other income. For the first quarter of 2010, other income (loss) was a loss of $60,000, compared to a loss of $61,000 in 2009.

Income Tax Expense. For the 2010 first quarter, the income tax expense was $2.9 million, which included a $2.6 million current federal tax expense and a $313,000 state tax expense, compared to the 2009 first quarter income tax expense of $1.8 million, which included a $1.5 million non-cash deferred federal tax expense and a $243,000 state tax expense.
