Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Strategy/Overview
Our strategy continues to emphasize growth in our core markets of instrumentation, digital imaging, aerospace and defense electronics and engineered systems. Our core markets are characterized by high barriers to entry and include specialized products and services not likely to be commoditized. We intend to strengthen and expand our core businesses with targeted acquisitions. We aggressively pursue operational excellence to continually improve our margins and earnings. At Teledyne, operational excellence includes the rapid integration of the businesses we acquire. Using complementary technology across our businesses and internal research and development, we seek to create new products to grow our company and expand our addressable markets.
Consistent with this strategy, we made five acquisitions in 2012. We acquired VariSystems Inc. ("VariSystems") in the first quarter, a majority interest in the parent company of Optech Incorporated ("Optech") in the second quarter, and LeCroy Corporation ("LeCroy"), the parent company of PDM Neptec Limited ("PDM Neptec") and BlueView Technologies, Inc. ("BlueView") in the third quarter. In the first nine months of 2011, we acquired DALSA Corporation ("DALSA"), a majority interest in Nova Sensors, Inc. and a minority interest investment in Optech. We also continue to evaluate our businesses to ensure that they are aligned with our strategy. On April 19, 2011, we completed the sale of our general aviation piston engine businesses, which comprised the former Aerospace Engines and Components segment. Accordingly, our consolidated financial statements classify the Aerospace Engines and Components segment as a discontinued operation.
Our Recent Acquisitions

Third quarter of 2012 compared with the third quarter of 2011 Our third quarter 2012 sales were $547.4 million, compared with sales of $496.4 million for the same period of 2011, an increase of 10.3%. Net income from continuing operations was $42.7 million ($1.14 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2012, compared with $34.1 million ($0.91 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 25.2%.
The third quarter of 2012, compared with the same period in 2011, reflected higher sales in each business segment except Aerospace and Defense Electronics. Incremental revenue in the third quarter of 2012 from recent acquisitions was $58.3 million.
Segment earnings increased to $69.9 million for the third quarter of 2012, from $65.7 million for the same period of 2011. Segment earnings reflected $3.8 million of acquisition related transaction costs. The incremental operating profit included in the results for the third quarter of 2012 from recent acquisitions was $2.2 million and included acquisition related transaction costs.

Cost of sales % of sales             63.8 %      66.7 %

Cost of sales increased by $17.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with the third quarter of 2011, which primarily reflected the impact of higher sales. Cost of sales as a percentage of sales for the third quarter of 2012 decreased to 63.8% from 66.7% in the third quarter of 2011 and reflected the impact of the LeCroy and Optech acquisitions which carry a lower cost of sales percentage than the average for our other businesses.
Certain contracts are accounted for under the percentage of completion ("POC") method and related contract cost and revenue estimates for significant contracts are generally reviewed and reassessed quarterly. The aggregate effects of these changes in estimates on contracts accounted for under the POC accounting method, in the third quarters of 2012 and 2011, were $5.4 million and $2.0 million of favorable operating income and $6.0 million and $1.4 million of unfavorable operating income, respectively.
Selling, general and administrative expenses, including research and development and bid and proposal expense, increased by $29.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with the third quarter of 2011, and reflected higher research and development expense due to our acquisitions, the impact of higher sales, $3.8 million in acquisition related expenses and higher acquired intangible asset amortization expense.

Corporate expense was $9.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared with $8.9 million for the third quarter of 2011, and reflected higher employee related expenses.
Interest expense, net of interest income, was $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. The increase in interest expense primarily reflected the impact of higher outstanding debt levels. Other income and expense in the third quarter of 2011 included a $4.5 million pretax charge to write off a minority investment in a private company. The Company's effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2012 was 24.5% compared with 30.9% for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease reflected a remeasurement of uncertain tax positions in the quarter, as well as a change in the proportion of domestic and international income. The third quarter of 2012 included tax benefits of $3.1 million related to the remeasurement of uncertain tax positions, including an expiration of the statute of limitations in the U.S. The third quarter of 2011 included tax benefits of $2.4 million related to the remeasurement of uncertain tax positions, including an expiration of

the statute of limitations in the U.S. Excluding the impact of the remeasurements, the effective tax rate would have been 30.0% for the third quarter of 2012, compared with 35.4% for the third quarter of 2011. First nine months of 2012 compared with the first nine months of 2011 Our first nine months 2012 sales were $1,559.9 million, compared with sales of $1,467.4 million for the same period of 2011, an increase of 6.3%.

Net income including discontinued operations was $117.9 million ($3.16 per diluted share) for the first nine months of 2012, compared with $218.4 million ($5.85 per diluted share) for the first nine months of 2011. The first nine months of 2011 includes income from discontinued operations of $113.1 million, which includes a gain on the sale of discontinued operations of $113.8 million.
The first nine months of 2012, compared with the same period in 2011, reflected higher sales in the Instrumentation and Digital Imaging segments and lower sales in the Aerospace and Defense Electronics and Engineered Systems segments. Incremental revenue in the first nine months of 2012 from recent acquisitions was $114.4 million.
Segment earnings increased to $202.3 million for the first nine months of 2012, from $200.8 million for the same period of 2011, and reflected higher results in each business segment except the Instrumentation segment.

65.4%, compared with 66.4% for the first nine months of 2011 and largely reflected favorable product mix differences in the Aerospace and Defense Electronics segment and also reflected the impact of the Optech acquisition which carries a lower cost of sales percentage than the average for our other businesses.
Certain contracts are accounted for under the POC method and related contract cost and revenue estimates for significant contracts are generally reviewed and reassessed quarterly. The aggregate effects of changes in estimates on contracts accounted for under the percentage-of-completion accounting method, in the first nine months of 2012 and 2011, were $12.0 million and $4.1 million of favorable operating income and $14.1 million and $3.2 million of unfavorable operating income, respectively.
Selling, general and administrative expenses, including research and development and bid and proposal expense, in total dollars were higher by $45.3 million in the first nine months of 2012, compared with the first nine months of 2011, and reflected higher research and development expense due to our acquisitions, the impact of higher sales and higher acquired intangible asset amortization. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2012, as a percentage of sales, increased to 23.4%, compared with 21.7% in the first nine months of 2011 and reflected higher acquired intangible asset amortization and higher research and development expense due to acquisitions. Corporate expense was $26.8 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared with $27.4 million for the first nine months of 2011.
Interest expense, net of interest income, was $12.6 million in the first nine months of 2012, compared with $12.4 million for the first nine months of 2011. Other income and expense in the first nine months of 2012 included foreign currency translation gains of $0.4 million, compared with $1.3 million for the first nine months of 2011 and a $0.6 million gain on the purchase of the majority interest in Optech. Other income and expense in the first nine months of 2011 also included a $4.5 million pretax charge to write off a minority investment in a private company.
The Company's effective income tax rate for the first nine months of 2012 was 28.4% compared with 33.5% for the first nine months of 2011. The decrease reflected a remeasurement of uncertain tax positions in the first nine months of 2012, as well as a change in the proportion of domestic and international income. The first nine months of 2012 included tax benefits of $4.3 million related to the remeasurement of uncertain tax positions, including an expiration of the statute of limitations in the U.S. The first nine months of 2011 included tax benefits of $2.4 million related to the remeasurement of uncertain tax positions, including an expiration of the statute of limitations in the U.S. Excluding the impact of the remeasurement, the effective tax rate would have been 31.0% for the first nine months of 2012, compared with 35.0% for the first nine months of 2011.

partially offset by reduced sales of environmental instrumentation. The higher sales of $6.9 million for marine instrumentation products reflected increased sales of interconnect systems used in offshore energy production and also included a total of $3.4 million in revenue from the August 3, 2012 acquisition of PDM Neptec and the July 2, 2012 acquisition of BlueView. Increased sales of $34.2 million for test and measurement instrumentation resulted from the acquisition of LeCroy on August 3, 2012. The decrease in sales of $4.4 million for environmental instrumentation primarily reflected lower domestic sales. The decrease in operating profit reflected $3.8 million in acquisition related transaction costs and $1.4 million in additional intangible asset amortization related to the LeCroy, PDM Neptec and BlueView transactions, partially offset by the impact of higher sales. The incremental operating profit included in the results for the third quarter of 2012 from recent acquisitions was $0.5 million. Third quarter cost of sales in total dollars increased by $16.0 million, compared with the third quarter of 2011, and reflected the impact of higher sales and product mix differences. The decrease in the cost of sales percentage largely reflected the impact of the LeCroy acquisition which carries a lower cost of sales percentage than the average for our other businesses in this segment.

Operating profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $89.5 million, compared with operating profit of $94.6 million for the first nine months of 2011, a decrease of 5.4%. The first nine months 2012 sales increase resulted from higher sales of marine instrumentation and test and measurement instrumentation, as well as environmental instrumentation. The higher sales of $10.3 million for marine instrumentation products reflected increased sales of interconnect systems used in offshore energy production and also included a total of $3.4 million in revenue from the acquisition of PDM Neptec and BlueView. Increased sales of $34.2 million for test and measurement instrumentation resulted from the acquisition of LeCroy. The increase in sales of $4.6 million for environmental instrumentation primarily reflected higher domestic sales. The decrease in operating profit reflected $4.6 million in acquisition expenses and $1.4 million in additional intangible asset amortization related to the LeCroy, PDM Neptec and BlueView transactions, partially offset by the impact of higher sales. The incremental operating profit included in the results for the first nine months of 2012 from recent acquisitions was $1.3 million.
