“2011 was a decisive year in the history of Teledyne, both financially and strategically," said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Full year sales, earnings per share, GAAP operating margin, and free cash flow all were at record levels. In addition to the financial performance, the divestiture of our aircraft piston engine business, along with its liabilities, significantly reduced our risk profile, while the acquisition of DALSA was a major commitment to digital imaging. Teledyne is a different company today. Following a decade of progressive change and continuous improvement in operations, we enter 2012 as a company primarily serving industrial growth markets. We now possess higher technology businesses, a greater research and development capability, and provide proprietary highly engineered products to markets such as offshore energy, global infrastructure, factory automation, transportation and communications.
