Woodward boost sales, earnings, raises guidance

FORT COLLINS — Woodward Inc. (Nasdaq: WWD), a Fort Collins company that designs, manufactures and services energy-conversion and control solutions for the aerospace and industrial equipment markets, improved its year-over-year sales and earnings in the second quarter of fiscal 2024, resulting in a hike in the company’s full-year 2024 revenue guidance.

In the most recent period, Woodward posted net earnings of $98 million on sales of $835 million. That’s up from net earnings of $36 million on $718 million in revenue during the second quarter of 2023. 

“Our improving operational performance allows us to capitalize on robust demand for Woodward products and services across both aerospace and industrial markets.
