Total sales were $1.26 billion, an increase of 12% from $1.13 billion in the same period in 2013, primarily due to the acquisition of ARINC. Analysts expected revenue of $1.30 billion for the quarter.

The company also announced it entered into an agreement to sell its satellite communications systems business formerly known as Datapath, Inc., which designs, manufactures and services ground-based satellite communication systems primarily for military customers.
