CURTISS-WRIGHT CORPORATION and SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES to CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)



1.           BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Curtiss-Wright Corporation and its subsidiaries (the "Corporation" or the "Company") is a global, diversified manufacturing and service company that designs, manufactures, and overhauls precision components and provides highly engineered products and services to the aerospace, defense, power generation, and general industrial markets.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Curtiss-Wright and its majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Corporation have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted as permitted by such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of these financial statements.

Management is required to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in the accompanying financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates. The most significant of these estimates includes the estimate of costs to complete long-term contracts under the percentage-of-completion accounting methods, the estimate of useful lives for property, plant, and equipment, cash flow estimates used for testing the recoverability of assets, pension plan and postretirement obligation assumptions, estimates for inventory obsolescence, estimates for the valuation and useful lives of intangible assets, legal reserves, and the estimate of future environmental costs. Changes in estimates of contract sales, costs, and profits are recognized using the cumulative catch-up method of accounting. This method recognizes in the current period the cumulative effect of the changes on current and prior periods. Accordingly, the effect of the changes on future periods of contract performance is recognized as if the revised estimate had been the original estimate. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, there were no significant changes in estimated contract costs. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been reflected in these financial statements.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Corporation’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of trends or of the operating results for a full year.

Recent accounting pronouncements adopted

ASU 2014-09 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers - On January 1, 2018, the Corporation adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and the related amendments (“new revenue standard”) using the modified retrospective method. The Corporation recognized the cumulative effect of initially applying the new revenue standard as an adjustment to the retained earnings balance as of January 1, 2018. Comparative information for prior periods has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standard in effect for those respective periods.

The cumulative effect from the adoption of the new revenue standard as of January 1, 2018 was as follows:

ASU 2017-07, Retirement Benefits - Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost - On January 1, 2018, the Corporation adopted the amendments to ASC 715 that improve the presentation of net periodic pension and postretirement benefit costs. The Corporation retrospectively adopted the presentation of service cost separate from the other components of net periodic costs and included it as a component of employee compensation cost in operating income. The interest cost, expected return on assets, amortization of prior service costs, and net actuarial gain/loss components of net periodic benefit costs have been reclassified from operating income to other income, net. Additionally, the Corporation elected to apply the practical expedient which allows it to reclassify amounts disclosed previously in Note 15 of the Corporation's 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K as the basis for applying retrospective presentation for comparative periods.

The effect of the retrospective change on the Corporation's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, was as follows:

ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations - Clarifying the Definition of a Business - On January 1, 2018, the Corporation adopted the amendments to ASC 805 which clarify the definition of a business. The standard introduces a screen for determining when assets acquired are not a business and clarifies that a business must include, at a minimum, an input and a substantive process that contribute to an output. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Recent accounting pronouncements to be adopted
Standard
Description
Effect on the condensed consolidated financial statements
ASU 2016-02 Leases
In February 2016, the FASB issued final guidance that will require lessees to put most leases on their balance sheets but recognize expenses on their income statements in a manner similar to today’s accounting.
The adoption of this standard is expected to result in an increase of approximately $130 million to $140 million in total assets and total liabilities in the Corporation’s Condensed Consolidated Balance sheet as the Corporation is required to recognize a right-of-use asset and lease liability for all leases greater than 12 months. However, the standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Corporation’s cash flows or results of operations. 


Date of adoption: January 1, 2019
ASU 2018-02 Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income
In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-02, Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. This ASU permits the reclassification of tax effects stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings as a result of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Act). The standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted.
 
The Corporation is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Date of adoption: January 1, 2019
ASU 2018-07 Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting
In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The ASU simplifies the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees by aligning it with the accounting for share-based payments to employees, with certain exceptions. The standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted.

The Corporation does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Date of adoption: January 1, 2019

Impact from the Tax Act

In accordance with Staff Bulletin No. 118, Income Tax Implications of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Corporation recognized the income tax effects of the Tax Act in its consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Corporation recorded additional provisional tax expense of $6.5 million for foreign

(UNAUDITED)

withholding taxes associated with the Tax Act. The Corporation expects to finalize any provisional amounts associated with the Tax Act over the next six months based on ongoing assessment of its tax positions and other relevant data.

2.           REVENUE

As discussed in Note 1, the Corporation accounts for revenues in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which was adopted as January 1, 2018 on a modified retrospective basis. Under ASC 606, revenue is recognized when control of a promised good and/or service is transferred to a customer in an amount that reflects the consideration that the Corporation expects to be entitled to in exchange for that good and/or service.

Performance Obligations

The Corporation identifies a performance obligation for each promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer. As part of its assessment, the Corporation considers all goods and/or services promised in the contract, regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or implied by customary business practices. The Corporation’s contracts may contain either a single performance obligation, including the promise to transfer individual goods or services that are not separately distinct within the context of the respective contracts, or multiple performance obligations. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Corporation allocates the overall transaction price to each performance obligation using standalone selling prices, where available, or utilizes estimates for each distinct good or service in the contract where standalone prices are not available.

The Corporation’s performance obligations are satisfied either at a point-in-time or on an over-time basis. Revenue recognized on an over-time basis for both the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 accounted for approximately 31% of total net sales. Typically, over-time revenue recognition is based on the utilization of an input measure used to measure progress, such as costs incurred to date relative to total estimated costs. Revenue recognized at a point-in-time for both the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 accounted for approximately 69% of total net sales. Revenue for these types of arrangements is recognized at the point in time in which control is transferred to the customer, typically based upon the terms of delivery.

Contract backlog represents the remaining performance obligations that have not yet been recognized as revenue. Backlog includes deferred revenue and amounts that will be invoiced and recognized as revenue in future periods. Total backlog was approximately $2.2 billion as of June 30, 2018, of which the Corporation expects to recognize approximately 86% as net sales over the next 12 -36 months. The remainder will be recognized thereafter.

Contract Balances

Timing of revenue recognition and cash collection may result in billed receivables, unbilled receivables (contract assets), and deferred revenue (contract liabilities) on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. The Corporation’s contract assets primarily relate to its rights to consideration for work completed but not billed as of the reporting date. Contract assets are transferred to billed receivables when the rights to consideration become unconditional. This is typical in situations where amounts are billed as work progresses in accordance with agreed-upon contractual terms or upon achievement of contractual milestones. The Corporation’s contract liabilities primarily consist of customer advances received prior to revenue being earned. Revenue recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2018 included in the contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the year was approximately $113 million. Contract assets and contract liabilities are reported in the "Receivables, net" and "Deferred revenue" lines, respectively, within the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

3.           ACQUISITIONS

The Corporation continually evaluates potential acquisitions that either strategically fit within the Corporation’s existing portfolio or expand the Corporation’s portfolio into new product lines or adjacent markets.  The Corporation has completed a number of acquisitions that have been accounted for as business combinations and have resulted in the recognition of goodwill in the Corporation's financial statements.  This goodwill arises because the acquisition purchase price reflects the future earnings and cash flow potential in excess of the earnings and cash flows attributable to the current product and customer set at the time of acquisition.  Thus, goodwill inherently includes the know-how of the assembled workforce, the ability of the workforce to further improve the technology and product offerings, and the expected cash flows resulting from these efforts. Goodwill may also include expected synergies resulting from the complementary strategic fit these businesses bring to existing operations.

The Corporation allocates the purchase price at the date of acquisition based upon its understanding of the fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities. In the months after closing, as the Corporation obtains additional information about these assets and liabilities, including through tangible and intangible asset appraisals, and as the Corporation learns more about the newly acquired business, it is able to refine the estimates of fair value and more accurately allocate the purchase price. Only items identified as of the acquisition date are considered for subsequent adjustment.  The Corporation will make appropriate adjustments to the purchase price allocation prior to completion of the measurement period, as required.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Corporation acquired one business for an aggregate purchase price of $213 million, which is described in more detail below. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Corporation acquired two businesses for an aggregate purchase price of $233 million, which are described in more detail below.

The Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2018 includes $22 million of total net sales and $3 million of net losses from the Corporation's 2018 acquisition. The Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2017 includes $25 million of total net sales and $4 million of net losses from the Corporation's 2017 acquisitions.

The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition for all acquisitions consummated during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

(UNAUDITED)

Total intangible amortization expense for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $21.1 million as compared to $19.1 million in the comparable prior year period.  The estimated amortization expense for the five years ending December 31, 2018 through 2022 is $43.6 million, $43.5 million, $41.6 million, $39.8 million, and $37.3 million, respectively.

8.           FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
Forward Foreign Exchange and Currency Option Contracts
 
The Corporation has foreign currency exposure primarily in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Canada.  The Corporation uses financial instruments, such as forward and option contracts, to hedge a portion of existing and anticipated foreign currency denominated transactions.  The purpose of the Corporation’s foreign currency risk management program is to reduce volatility in earnings caused by exchange rate fluctuations.  Guidance on accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities requires companies to recognize all of the derivative financial instruments as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets based upon quoted market prices for comparable instruments.
 
Interest Rate Risks and Related Strategies
 
The Corporation’s primary interest rate exposure results from changes in U.S. dollar interest rates. The Corporation’s policy is to manage interest cost using a mix of fixed and variable rate debt. The Corporation periodically uses interest rate swaps to manage such exposures. Under these interest rate swaps, the Corporation exchanges, at specified intervals, the difference between fixed and floating interest amounts calculated by reference to an agreed-upon notional principal amount. The Corporation’s foreign exchange contracts and interest rate swaps are considered Level 2 instruments which are based on market based inputs or unobservable inputs and corroborated by market data such as quoted prices, interest rates, or yield curves.

Effects on Consolidated Balance Sheets

As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the fair values of the asset and liability derivative instruments were immaterial.

Effects on Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings
 
Undesignated hedges

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the gains or losses recognized in income on forward exchange derivative contracts not designated for hedge accounting were immaterial.

Debt

The estimated fair value amounts were determined by the Corporation using available market information that is primarily based on quoted market prices for the same or similar issuances as of June 30, 2018.  Accordingly, all of the Corporation’s debt is valued at a Level 2.  The fair values described below may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values.  Furthermore, the use of different methodologies to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Corporation made a $50 million contribution to the Curtiss-Wright Pension Plan, and does not expect to make any further contributions in 2018. Contributions to the foreign benefit plans are not expected to be material in 2018.

Defined Contribution Retirement Plan

Effective January 1, 2014, all non-union employees who were not currently receiving final or career average pay benefits became eligible to receive employer contributions in the Corporation’s sponsored 401(k) plan. The employer contributions include both employer match and non-elective contribution components, up to a maximum employer contribution of 6% of eligible compensation. During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the expense relating to the plan was $7.4 million and $6.8 million, respectively. The Corporation made $10.8 million in contributions to the plan during the six months ended June 30, 2018, and expects to make total contributions of $14.0 million in 2018.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, there were no anti-dilutive equity-based awards. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, approximately 38,000 shares issuable under equity-based awards were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share as they were anti-dilutive based on the average stock price during the period.

11.           SEGMENT INFORMATION
 
The Corporation manages and evaluates its operations based on end markets to strengthen its ability to service customers and recognize certain organizational efficiencies. Based on this approach, the Corporation has three reportable segments: Commercial/Industrial, Defense, and Power.

The Corporation’s measure of segment profit or loss is operating income. Interest expense and income taxes are not reported on an operating segment basis as they are not considered in the segments’ performance evaluation by the Corporation’s chief operating decision-maker, its Chief Executive Officer.
Net sales and operating income by reportable segment were as follows:

13.           CONTINGENCIES AND COMMITMENTS

Legal Proceedings

The Corporation has been named in a number of lawsuits that allege injury from exposure to asbestos.  To date, the Corporation has not been found liable for or paid any material sum of money in settlement in any case.  The Corporation believes its minimal use of asbestos in its past operations and the relatively non-friable condition of asbestos in its products makes it unlikely that it will face material liability in any asbestos litigation, whether individually or in the aggregate.  The Corporation maintains insurance coverage for these potential liabilities and believes adequate coverage exists to cover any unanticipated asbestos liability.

In December 2013, the Corporation, along with other unaffiliated parties, received a claim from Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) filed in the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta, Judicial District of Calgary. The claim pertains to a January 2011 fire and explosion at a delayed coker unit at its Fort McMurray refinery that resulted in the injury of five CNRL employees, damage to property and equipment, and various forms of consequential loss, such as loss of profit, lost opportunities, and business interruption. The fire and explosion occurred when a CNRL employee bypassed certain safety controls and opened an operating coker unit. The total quantum of alleged damages arising from the incident has not been finalized, but is estimated to meet or exceed $1 billion.  The Corporation maintains various forms of commercial, property and casualty, product liability, and other forms of insurance; however, such insurance may not be adequate to cover the costs associated with a judgment against us. In October 2017, all parties agreed in principle to participate in a formal mediation in late 2018 with the intention of settling this claim. In an effort to induce the parties to participate in the formal mediation, CNRL agreed to reduce its claim to approximately $400 million, which reflects the monetary amount of property damage incurred as a result of the fire and explosion. The Corporation is currently unable to estimate an amount, or range of potential losses, if any, from this matter. The Corporation believes that it has adequate legal defenses and intends to defend this matter vigorously. The Corporation's financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows could be materially affected during a future fiscal quarter or fiscal year by unfavorable developments or outcome regarding this claim.

In addition to the CNRL litigation, the Corporation is party to a number of other legal actions and claims, none of which individually or in the aggregate, in the opinion of management, are expected to have a material effect on the Corporation’s results of operations or financial position.

Westinghouse Bankruptcy

On March 29, 2017, WEC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the Court), Case No. 17-10751.  The Court overseeing the Bankruptcy Case approved, on an interim basis, an $800 million Debtor-in-Possession Financing Facility to help WEC finance its business operations during the reorganization process. On January 4, 2018, WEC announced that it had agreed to be acquired by Brookfield Business Partners L.P (Brookfield) for approximately $4.6 billion, with the acquisition expected to close in the third quarter of 2018. On March 27, 2018, the Court approved the sale to Brookfield. The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on the Corporation’s financial condition or results of operations as WEC plans to continue operating in the ordinary course of business under existing senior management.

The Corporation has approximately $2.9 million in pre-petition billings outstanding with WEC as of June 30, 2018. On March 27, 2018, the Court approved WEC's Plan of Reorganization, whereby the Corporation is expected to recover substantially all of its general unsecured claims inclusive of pre-petition billings. As it relates to post-petition work, the Corporation will continue to honor its executory contracts and expects to collect all amounts due.  The Corporation will continue to monitor and evaluate the status of the WEC bankruptcy for potential impacts on its business.

Letters of Credit and Other Financial Arrangements

The Corporation enters into standby letters of credit agreements and guarantees with financial institutions and customers primarily relating to guarantees of repayment, future performance on certain contracts to provide products and services, and to secure advance payments from certain international customers. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, there were $19.7 million and $21.3 million of stand-by letters of credit outstanding, respectively, and $14.0 million and $14.6 million of bank

(UNAUDITED)

guarantees outstanding, respectively. In addition, the Corporation is required to provide the Nuclear Regulatory Commission financial assurance demonstrating its ability to cover the cost of decommissioning its Cheswick, Pennsylvania facility upon closure, though the Corporation does not intend to close this facility.  The Corporation has provided this financial assurance in the form of a $56.0 million surety bond.

AP1000 Program

The Electro-Mechanical Division, which is within the Corporation’s Power segment, is the reactor coolant pump (RCP) supplier for the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plants under construction in China and the United States.  The terms of the AP1000 China and United States contracts include liquidated damage penalty provisions for failure to meet contractual delivery dates if the Corporation caused the delay and the delay was not excusable. On October 10, 2013, the Corporation received a letter from Westinghouse stating entitlements to the maximum amount of liquidated damages allowable under the AP1000 China contract from Westinghouse of approximately $25 million. The Corporation would be liable for liquidated damages under the contract if certain contractual delivery dates were not met and if the Corporation was deemed responsible for the delay. As of June 30, 2018, the Corporation has not met certain contractual delivery dates under its AP 1000 China and U.S. contracts; however there are significant uncertainties as to which parties are responsible for the delays. The Corporation believes it has adequate legal defenses and intends to vigorously defend this matter. Given the uncertainties surrounding the responsibility for the delays, no accrual has been made for this matter as of June 30, 2018.  As of June 30, 2018, the range of possible loss is $0 to $31 million for the AP1000 U.S. contract, for a total range of possible loss of $0 to $55.5 million.

FINANCIAL CONDITION and RESULTS OF OPERATIONS, continued


COMPANY ORGANIZATION
 
Curtiss-Wright Corporation is a diversified, multinational provider of highly engineered, technologically advanced, value-added products and services to a broad range of industries which are reported through our Commercial/Industrial, Defense, and Power segments. We are positioned as a market leader across a diversified array of niche markets through engineering and technological leadership, precision manufacturing, and strong relationships with our customers. We provide products and services to a number of global markets and have achieved balanced growth through the successful application of our core competencies in engineering and precision manufacturing. Our overall strategy is to be a balanced and diversified company, less vulnerable to cycles or downturns in any one market, and to establish strong positions in profitable niche markets. Approximately 40% of our 2018 revenues are expected to be generated from defense-related markets.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (MD&A) is intended to help the reader understand the results of operations and financial condition of the Corporation for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2018. The financial information as of June 30, 2018 should be read in conjunction with the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 contained in our Form 10-K.

The MD&A is organized into the following sections: Consolidated Statements of Earnings, Results by Business Segment, and Liquidity and Capital Resources. Our discussion will be focused on the overall results of continuing operations followed by a more detailed discussion of those results within each of our reportable segments.

Our three reportable segments are generally concentrated in a few end markets; however, each may have sales across several end markets.  An end market is defined as an area of demand for products and services.  The sales for the relevant markets will be discussed throughout the MD&A.

Analytical Definitions

Throughout management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations, the terms “incremental” and “organic” are used to explain changes from period to period. The term “incremental” is used to highlight the impact acquisitions and divestitures had on the current year results. The results of operations for acquisitions are incremental for the first twelve months from the date of acquisition. Additionally, the results of operations of divested businesses are removed from the comparable prior year period for purposes of calculating “organic” and “incremental” results. The definition of “organic” excludes the effect of foreign currency translation.

industrial valve products in the Commercial/Industrial segment, higher sales and favorable overhead absorption, improved profitability due to the absence of first year purchase accounting costs from our TTC acquisition, and favorable contract adjustments in the Defense segment, and the benefits of our ongoing margin improvement initiatives across all segments. These increases were partially offset by declines in the Power segment due to first year purchase accounting costs on the acquisition of the Dresser-Rand government business (DRG), lower production levels on the AP1000 U.S. program, and reduced profitability in the nuclear aftermarket business.

Non-segment operating expense in the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased $1 million, or 16%, to $8 million and $1 million, or 6%, to $17 million, respectively, from the comparable prior year periods. These decreases were primarily due to lower corporate costs.

Interest expense in the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased $1 million, or 11%, to $10 million and $3 million, or 16%, to $18 million, respectively, primarily due to maturation of the $150 million 5.51% Senior Notes which were repaid in full on December 1, 2017.

The effective tax rate of 22.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 decreased as compared to an effective tax rate of 30.3% in the prior year period, primarily due to the current period reduction of the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% under the Tax Act.  The effective tax rate of 24.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased as compared to an effective tax rate of 26.9% in the prior year period, primarily due to the U.S. corporate income tax rate reduction under the Tax Act. This decrease was partially offset by additional provisional tax expense associated with the Tax Act for foreign withholding taxes as well as the elimination of the Section 199 manufacturers’ deduction.

Comprehensive income in the second quarter of 2018 was $34 million, compared to comprehensive income of $85 million in the prior year period. The change was primarily due to the following:

Net earnings increased $24 million, primarily due to the higher operating income discussed above.
Foreign currency translation adjustments in the second quarter resulted in a $44 million comprehensive loss, compared to a $33 million comprehensive gain in the prior year period. The comprehensive loss during the current period was primarily attributed to decreases in the British Pound, Canadian dollar, and Euro with the prior period comprehensive gain primarily attributed to increases in the British Pound and Euro.

Comprehensive income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $96 million, compared to comprehensive income of $131 million in the prior year period. The change was primarily due to the following:

Net earnings increased $35 million, primarily due to the higher operating income discussed above.
Foreign currency translation adjustments for the six months ended June 30, 2018 resulted in a $28 million comprehensive loss, compared to a $44 million comprehensive gain in the prior period. The comprehensive loss during the current period was primarily attributed to decreases in the Canadian dollar and British Pound with the prior period comprehensive gain primarily attributed to increases in the British Pound, Euro, and Canadian dollar.

New orders increased $152 million and $113 million during the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018, from the comparable prior year periods. The increase in new orders for each of the respective periods was primarily due to the DRG acquisition in the Power segment and the timing of customer funding in the Defense and Power segments. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in the Commercial/Industrial segment due to the timing of aerospace defense orders and a decline in orders on the Boeing 737 platform.

Sales in the Commercial/Industrial segment are primarily generated from the commercial aerospace and general industrial markets, and to a lesser extent the defense and power generation markets.

Sales in the second quarter increased $21 million, or 7%, to $312 million from the prior year period. In the general industrial market, sales increased $14 million primarily due to higher demand for our industrial vehicle, industrial controls, and industrial valve products. Aerospace defense sales increased primarily due to higher sales of actuation systems on fighter jets. Sales in the commercial aerospace market were essentially flat as higher sales of sensors and controls products and surface treatment services were more than offset by the timing of FAA directive revenues. Favorable foreign currency translation benefited sales $6 million.
 
Sales during the six months ended June 30, 2018 increased $39 million, or 7%, to $609 million from the prior year period. In the general industrial market, sales increased $18 million primarily due to higher demand for our industrial vehicle, industrial controls, and industrial valve products. Sales in the naval defense market benefited $9 million primarily due to higher production levels on CVN-80 pumps. Aerospace defense sales increased $10 million primarily due to higher sales of actuation systems on fighter jets. Sales in the commercial aerospace market were essentially flat as higher sales of sensors and controls products and surface treatment services were more than offset by the timing of FAA directive revenues. Favorable foreign currency translation benefited sales $13 million.
 
Operating income during the second quarter increased $8 million, or 19%, to $52 million from the prior year period, while operating margin increased 160 basis points to 16.6%. Operating income during the six months ended June 30, 2018 increased $17 million, or 23%, to $91 million from the prior year period, while operating margin increased 190 basis points to 14.9%. The increases in operating income and operating margin for each of the respective periods were primarily due to higher sales volumes and favorable overhead absorption for industrial vehicle and industrial valve products as well as ongoing margin improvement initiatives. These increases were partially offset by lower profitability for actuation system products due to lower volume and unfavorable mix.
