 Craig E. LaBarge, chief executive officer and president, commented: "These are excellent results. They show continued growth of our sales and profits just as we have been forecasting. In addition, we continue to be pleased with the level of new orders which we are receiving.
 "One of the highlights of the recently ended quarter was the major new contract we announced with General Dynamics Space Systems Division of San Diego, Calif. This contract, under which we will produce electrical cables and harness assemblies for the Atlas II and Titan IV/Centaur launch vehicles, is consistent with our strategy of rapid growth in our commercial business. Our goal this year is for commercial business to account for a record 25 percent of our revenues, while our defense electronics sales continue to increase.
 "Our backlog also remains healthy. As of Dec. 29, 1991, it stood at $76.6 million, compared with $73 million a year earlier.
 "We are continuing to perform in line with our plans. As the year progresses, we are optimistic that we will continue to produce good results."
