CEO Michael S. Lipscomb stated, “Fiscal 2014 was a year of consolidation for SIFCO, in which the transformative changes set in motion in the previous years created the pure play, aerospace and energy (A&E) focused forging business that SIFCO is today. In continuing to take steps to support our strategic vision, the Company significantly invested in infrastructure to support future growth, including beginning an ERP implementation that will eventually be company-wide and replacing legacy equipment with next-generation technology to achieve sustainable cost savings. SIFCO also reached a milestone as a public company.  Because our market capitalization surpassed certain thresholds, SIFCO became an accelerated filer and is no longer a non-accelerated, smaller reporting company. While this required the Company to incur additional unplanned costs associated with  meeting  expanded  reporting and internal controls requirements, the process has strengthened  SIFCO as a company. Overall, we believe that our strategy remains sound, the outlook in our target markets is favorable, and we will continue to provide sustained, long-term growth for our shareholders.”
