PORTLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/22/11 -- FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011. Revenue was $390.0 million, up 18% compared to second quarter 2010 revenue of $331.1 million. Operating income in the second quarter was $41.7 million, compared to $89.8 million in the second quarter of 2010, and was impacted by a previously announced litigation settlement and related expenses, as well as delayed government procurement. Second quarter 2011 net income was $29.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with net income of $59.5 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in the second quarter a year ago. Excluding the net after tax impact of the litigation settlement and related expenses, second quarter 2011 net income was $57.2 million, or $0.35 per diluted share.

Revenue from the Company's Commercial Systems division increased 32% from the second quarter of 2010, to $215.0 million. Within the Commercial Systems division, revenue from the Thermal Vision and Measurement segment was $164.8 million, an increase of 21% over the second quarter combined results of Thermography and CVS last year. Commercial Systems' Raymarine segment contributed $50.2 million of revenue during the quarter.

Revenue from the Company's Government Systems division increased 4% over the second quarter of 2010, to $174.9 million. Within the Government Systems division, revenue from the Surveillance segment was $141.5 million, a decrease of 16% from the second quarter of 2010 results of the Company's legacy Government Systems business. Revenues from Government Systems' other two segments, Detection and Integrated Systems were $17.2 and $16.2 million, respectively.

The Company's backlog of firm orders for delivery within the next twelve months was approximately $486 million at June 30, 2011, a decrease of $42 million during the quarter. Backlog in the Government Systems division was $319 million, decreasing $41 million during the quarter as a result of procurement delays. Backlog in the Commercial Systems division was $167 million, down $1 million during the quarter.

FLIR today also announced that it has acquired Aerius Photonics, LLC, a leading provider of short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) detectors and advanced laser components, for $27 million in cash. Aerius Photonics, based in Ventura, California, specializes in the design, development, and manufacture of high-sensitivity photonic components for use in various applications in the commercial and military markets. Products include indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs)-based infrared detectors, high-powered vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) diodes, ultra-lightweight laser rangefinders and altimeters, and infrared illuminators and pointers.

"The second quarter finished with solid results for our Commercial Systems division, which posted one of its best growth quarters along with substantially improved profitability. Our Government Systems division was impacted by order and shipment delays," noted Earl Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR. "We are excited to add Aerius to our Commercial Systems business. Aerius will enhance our ability to serve OEMs in numerous sectors as well as augment our multi-spectral systems development capabilities."
