 "Although earnings did not reach last year's levels, we produced solid profits in a recession year, increased our research and development investment for the future and reduced bank debt by more than $30 million," according to chairman and chief executive officer Charles H. Kaman. "Our diversification and leading edge technologies are fundamental to our strategy for the new defense environment of reduced spending and increased focus on cost-effective systems.
 "In industrial markets, we continued to focus on increasing value to our customers through applying technology and helping customers reduce costs, improve productivity and increase profitability.
 "Our commercial business was stable during the year and we received some significant new aerospace subcontract work which will run through the end of the decade. Our music business continued to grow and gain market share internationally.
 "Kaman has never been financially stronger. We have put into place substantial domestic and foreign long-term credit facilities and the ability to pursue opportunities as they arise. While we must manage and adjust our business very carefully in this uncertain economic environment, we are well positioned in our markets and are confident about our long-term prospects," said Kaman.
 Kaman Corp., based here, is a highly diversified company with business activities in defense (40 percent), industrial (40 percent), and commercial (20 percent) markets.
