Quarterly Report


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

The following should be read in conjunction with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contained in the Company's Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2013. All references to years in this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations are to fiscal years and amounts may differ from reported values due to rounding.
OVERVIEW
We are a worldwide designer, manufacturer and systems integrator of high performance precision motion and fluid controls and control systems for a broad range of applications in aerospace and defense and industrial markets. Within the aerospace and defense market, our products and systems include:
military and commercial aircraft flight controls, satellite positioning controls, controls for gun aiming, stabilization and automatic ammunition loading for armored combat vehicles, thrust vector controls for space launch vehicles and controls for steering tactical and strategic missiles. In the industrial market, our products are used in a wide range of applications including:
injection molding machines, metal forming, heavy industry, material and automotive testing, pilot training simulators, motors used in sleep apnea devices, enteral clinical nutrition and infusion therapy pumps, oil exploration, wind energy, power generation, surveillance systems and slip rings used on CT scanners.
We operate under five segments, Aircraft Controls, Space and Defense Controls, Industrial Systems, Components and Medical Devices. Our principal manufacturing facilities are located in the United States, United Kingdom, Philippines, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, China, Costa Rica, Japan, Luxembourg, India, Canada and Ireland.
We have long-term contracts with some of our customers. These contracts are predominantly within Aircraft Controls and Space and Defense Controls and represent 33% of our 2013 sales. We recognize revenue on these contracts using the percentage of completion, cost-to-cost method of accounting as work progresses toward completion. The remainder of our sales are recognized when the risks and rewards of ownership and title to the product are transferred to the customer, principally as units are delivered or as service obligations are satisfied. This method of revenue recognition is predominantly used within the Industrial Systems, Components and Medical Devices segments, as well as with aftermarket activity.
We concentrate on providing our customers with products designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards. Our products are applied in demanding applications, where performance really matters. In achieving a leadership position in the high performance, precision controls market, we have capitalized on our strengths, which include:
superior technical competence,

customer diversity and broad product portfolio, and

well-established international presence serving customers worldwide.

These strengths afford us the ability to innovate our current solutions into new, complimentary technologies, providing us the opportunity to advance our products from one market to another. In addition, we aim to provide more systems solutions for the platforms on which we currently participate while strengthening the current niche market positions that we serve. These activities will help us achieve our financial objectives of increasing our revenue base and improving our long term profitability and cash flow from operations. In doing so, we expect to maintain a balanced, diversified portfolio in terms of markets served, product applications, customer base and geographic presence. Our fundamental strategies to achieve our objectives include:
maintaining our technological excellence by building upon our systems integration capabilities while solving our customers' most demanding technical problems, in applications where performance really matters,

striving for organic growth as well as cost improvements,

utilizing our global capabilities,

developing products for new and emerging markets,

growing our profitable aftermarket business, and

capitalizing on strategic acquisitions and opportunities.


We face numerous challenges to improve shareholder value. These include, but are not limited to, adjusting to dynamic global economic conditions that are influenced by governmental, industrial and commercial factors, pricing pressures from customers, strong competition, foreign currency fluctuations and increases in employee benefit costs. We address these challenges by focusing on strategic revenue growth, by continuing to improve operating efficiencies through various process and manufacturing initiatives and using low cost manufacturing facilities without compromising quality. Based on periodic strategic reviews, including the financial outlook of our business, we may also engage in restructuring activities, including reducing overhead, consolidating facilities and exiting some product lines.

Acquisitions and Divestitures

All of our acquisitions are accounted for under the purchase method and, accordingly, the operating results for the acquired companies are included in the consolidated statements of earnings from the respective dates of acquisition. Under purchase accounting, we record assets and liabilities at fair value on the consolidated balance sheet. The purchase price described for each acquisition below is net of any cash acquired, includes debt issued or assumed and the fair value of contingent consideration.

In 2013, we completed two business combinations. One of these business combinations was in our Space and Defense Controls segment. We acquired Broad Reach Engineering for $46 million. Based in Colorado, Broad Reach Engineering is a leading designer and manufacturer of spaceflight electronics and software for aerospace, scientific, commercial and military missions. The company also provides ground testing, launch and on-orbit operations. We also completed one business combination in our Components segment. We acquired Aspen Motion Technologies, located in Radford, Virginia, for $34 million. Aspen is a designer and manufacturer of high-performance permanent magnet brushless DC motors, integrated digital controls and motorized impellers for motors. Aspen also specializes in custom motor designs for end product integration and significant product enhancement in a variety of high-performance industrial applications.

In 2013, we completed one divestiture in our Medical Devices segment. We sold our Buffalo, New York operations of Ethox Medical for $5 million.

Also in 2013, we began exploring strategic options for the Medical Devices segment, including the possibility of selling the entire segment. We are still in that assessment process.

Reviews for Impairment of Goodwill

We tested goodwill of our Medical Devices reporting unit for impairment in the fourth quarter of 2013 as part of our annual test. Our test resulted in a fair value of our Medical Devices reporting unit that was less than its carrying amount, requiring us to measure goodwill for impairment. We determined the implied fair value of goodwill, and recognized a $38 million goodwill impairment charge in our fourth quarter of 2013 for the excess of the carrying amount of goodwill over its implied fair value.

We performed an interim test on goodwill for impairment of our Medical Devices reporting unit in the first quarter of 2014. We performed a quantitative assessment for this reporting unit, which had $85 million of goodwill as of the date of our test. Based on this test, the fair value of our Medical Devices reporting unit exceeded its carrying value. Therefore, goodwill was not impaired.

The fair value of our Medical Devices reporting unit exceeded its carrying amount by 1%. The determination of each of our assumptions is subjective and requires significant estimates. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the results of our impairment review. If cash flows generated by our Medical Devices reporting unit were to decline in the future or there were negative revisions to key assumptions, we may be required to record impairment charges.


CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

On an ongoing basis, we evaluate the critical accounting policies used to prepare our consolidated financial statements, including, but not limited to, revenue recognition on long-term contracts, contract loss reserves, reserves for inventory valuation, reviews for impairment of goodwill, purchase price allocations for business combinations, pension assumptions and deferred tax asset valuation allowances.

There have been no material changes in critical accounting policies in the current year from those disclosed in our 2013 Form 10-K.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In March 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-05, "Parent's Accounting for the Cumulative Translation Adjustment upon Derecognition of Certain Subsidiaries or Group of Assets within a Foreign Entity or of an Investment in a Foreign Entity." This ASU is intended to eliminate diversity in practice on the release of cumulative translation adjustments into net income when a parent either sells part or all of its investment in a foreign entity, or when it no longer holds a controlling financial interest. In addition, the amendments resolve the diversity in practice for the treatment of business combinations achieved in stages involving a foreign entity. The provisions of this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2013 and interim periods within those fiscal years. This amendment is applicable to us beginning in the first quarter of 2015. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.
