Teledyne management operated the company cautiously in 2009, with a focus on cost cutting, maximizing cash flow and improving operations, said Chairman, President and CEO Robert Mehrabian. “While some of our commercial markets are beginning to improve, we expect weakness in selected government services businesses in 2010, and we will continue to manage the company appropriately,” Mehrabian said. “. In addition, given our strong cash flow and ample liquidity, we plan to pursue acquisitions more aggressively, as we have in prior years.” Mark R. Madler
