Bristol’s Barnes Group sees 3Q net drop

Bristol aerospace- and industrial-parts manufacturer Barnes Group Inc. posted a 20 percent drop in third-quarter earnings.

Three-month net earnings of $18.5 million, or 34 cents per share, vs. $23.2 million, or 41 cents per share, in the third quarter 2011.

Barnes said its latest earnings were impacted by a $5.1 million pre-tax purchase of accounting adjustments and acquisition costs of Massachusetts manufacturer Synventive.

Barnes' sales in the third quarter increased to $306.1 million vs. $298.6 million last, boosted largely by the aerospace and industrial manufacturing divisions.

As a result of the softer third quarter, Barnes revised its earnings outlook to $1.73 a share for the year.
