Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the provisions of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, using the modified retrospective method for transition.

Table 3 summarizes Q2 Net sales excluding the impact of ASC 606 and currency translation effects:

In Machine Clothing, when excluding the impact of ASC 606 and currency translation effects, Net sales increased 8.2% compared to Q2 2017. The increase was principally due to global growth in sales for the packaging and tissue grades, more than offsetting a continuing but small decline in publication grade sales.

AEC Net sales grew 35.7% compared to Q2 2017, when excluding the impact of ASC 606 and currency translation effects, primarily driven by growth in the LEAP, Boeing 787, F-35 and CH-53K programs.

Table 4 summarizes Gross profit by segment:

Second-quarter MC Gross profit as a percentage of sales improved to 48.9% as a result of higher sales and strong capacity utilization. AEC’s negative gross profit in Q2 2017 was principally due to the $15.8 million charge related to revisions in the estimated profitability of two contracts, as described above. The additional improvement in AEC Gross profit as a percentage of sales was driven by higher sales and improved labor productivity.
