“We are pleased with our performance during the second quarter. Strong double-digit organic growth in aerospace markets more than offset the weakness in industrial markets” said Dr. Michael J.

Acquisition
On August 15, 2019, the Company completed the acquisition of Swiss Tool Systems for $33.8 million, subject to a final working capital adjustment. With headquarters located in Bürglen, Thurgau, Switzerland, Swiss Tool is a leading world-wide supplier of modular tooling systems and high-precision boring and turning solutions for metal cutting machines. Last twelve months sales were approximately $11.3 million. Swiss Tool will be reported as part of our Engineered Products segment.

Outlook for the Third Quarter Fiscal 2020
The Company expects net sales to be approximately $177.0 million to $179.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. This would result in a growth rate of 3.2% to 4.4% on a year-over-year basis and 3.6% to 4.7% excluding $2.9 million in sales associated with our Miami division, which was sold in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, and $2.5 million of sales associated with Swiss Tool, which we acquired in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The third quarter will be impacted by approximately four to five fewer production and shipping days due to the holiday schedule.
