"We are pleased to report record quarterly and full year earnings per share. In addition, we are proud of our consistent performance, having grown full year earnings per share for nine consecutive years," said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Teledyne continues to evolve, with a greater proportion of sales and operating profit derived from commercial electronics and instrumentation for global energy, water quality and industrial applications. We also recently announced two significant transactions which will further transition our business mix. The pending acquisition of DALSA Corporation, whose imaging sensors, cameras and software primarily serve the commercial machine vision market, will add total sales of approximately $200 million on a full year basis. In addition, the pending sale of Continental Motors to a strong international buyer will enhance Continental Motors' opportunity to enter the global market for general aviation piston engines, while allowing Teledyne to focus on our core businesses. Following these transactions, which we expect to close in the first quarter of 2011, Teledyne will be transformed into a pure-play electronics, instrumentation and engineering focused company.Click here to read the report
