Neal J. Keating, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “2013 was a successful year for Kaman as strong performance across a number of our Aerospace programs enabled us to deliver solid operating results. Despite the challenges encountered at Distribution, the segment achieved organic sales growth of 5.2% for the fourth quarter, our first quarter of year-over-year organic sales growth in Distribution since the second quarter of 2012.

The strong performance at Aerospace was attributable to increased deliveries of bearing products, JPF direct commercial sales and initial milestone achievements under our SH-2G(I) Helicopter program with New Zealand. We continued to make progress on our new program start-ups and initial deliveries on the AH-1Z program to Bell during the fourth quarter, which contributed to a 13.1% sales increase over the prior year. Our “One Kaman” strategy achieved its first significant program win with the recently announced 747-8 wing-to-body fairing contract with Boeing and we are confident this strategy will continue to resonate in the market providing us with additional opportunities on similar programs.

At Distribution we are focusing on making the necessary investments in this business in order to improve its long-term profitability, including the roll-out of our new ERP system. Additionally, we are reviewing the supply base with the intent of consolidating these relationships in order to improve our volume incentives. We are also increasing our sales force, a process which began in the first quarter of 2014, to further capitalize on expected improvements in the markets we serve."

Operating income $ 10,352 $ 11,155 $ 43,326 $ 50,560
% of sales 3.9 % 4.5 % 4.1 % 5.0 %
 

The increase in sales for the fourth quarter is due to the contribution of $6.4 million in sales from our acquisitions (sales from acquisitions are classified as organic beginning with the thirteenth month following the acquisition) and a 3.5% increase in organic sales per sales day*. (See Table 3 for additional details regarding the Segment's sales per sales day performance.) Operating profit margin in the fourth quarter decreased due to lower purchase volume incentives and the recognition of $1.1 million in losses on mining contracts at our Mexico operations. These decreases were partially offset by the contribution from the acquisitions we completed in 2012 and 2013 and cost savings from our first quarter restructuring.

The increase in sales for the full year was due to the contribution of sales from our acquisitions partially offset by a decrease in organic sales of 1.7% when measured on a sales per sales day* basis. Operating income decreased during 2013 as compared to 2012 primarily due to negative operating leverage combined with lower volume incentives due to lower year-over-year organic sales volume, $2.4 million of losses on mining contracts at our Mexico operations and $2.8 million of expense associated with the restructuring in the first quarter of 2013. The first quarter restructuring resulted in cost savings of approximately $6.4 million for the full year.

% of sales 14.8 % 15.0 % 16.7 % 15.3 %
 

Fourth quarter sales increased as a result of higher shipments of our Joint Programmable Fuze ("JPF") to foreign customers, revenues associated with the SH-2G(I) contract with New Zealand and delivery of our first AH-1Z fuselage. Partially offsetting these increases were reductions of JPF shipments to the United States Government ("USG"), lower sales of engineering services and the absence of $2.5 million in sales related to the settlement of a program related matter in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Operating income for the fourth quarter increased due to gross profit from the SH-2G(I) program, higher commercial and military bearing product sales and the absence of $3.3 million in expense associated with the settlement of a program related matter in the fourth quarter of 2012. These increases were partially offset by a $2.1 million non-cash non-tax deductible goodwill impairment charge, higher sales of lower margin programs and decreased gross profit on certain metallic and composite aerostructures programs.

Sales for the full year increased primarily due to an increase in sales attributable to revenue from the SH-2G(I) contract with New Zealand, increased sales on our JPF program, revenue recognized on the AH-1Z program and higher military bearing product sales.

Operating income for the full year increased due to gross profit from the SH-2G(I) program, higher commercial and military bearing product sales and higher gross profit on our JPF program. The higher profit contributions were partially offset by lower gross profit due to cost growth on various programs across the segment, a $2.1 million non-cash non-tax deductible goodwill impairment charge and higher SG&A expense.

Outlook

The Company's expectations for 2014 are as follows:

  • Distribution:
    • Sales of $1,115 million to $1,150 million
    • Operating margins of 4.7% to 5.2%
  • Aerospace:
    • Sales of $640 million to $660 million
    • Operating margins of 16.5% to 17.0%
  • Interest expense of approximately $13 million
  • Corporate expenses of approximately $52 million
  • Estimated annualized tax rate of approximately 35%
  • Capital expenditures of $35 million to $40 million
  • Free cash flow* in the range of $40 million to $45 million

Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Robert D. Starr commented, “Full year earnings per share from continuing operations were $2.09, a 3% increase over the prior year, reflecting our ability to adjust and manage through difficult market conditions. Our continued focus on working capital allowed us to generate free cash flow* of $26.8 million during the quarter and $22.0 million for the full year, in line with expectations.

For 2014 we expect sequential earnings improvement throughout the year, with approximately 60% of the cumulative earnings coming in the second half. For Aerospace, we expect 2014 sales to increase more than 5%, with margins consistent with the high level achieved in 2013.

At Distribution, we anticipate improved operating performance as our initiatives deliver results in conjunction with improvements in underlying market conditions. Our 2014 operating margin outlook includes expenses related to our ERP roll-out, as well as the investment in approximately 50 to 60 account managers. Our phased ERP roll-out process, while reducing operational risk, will add operating expense burden ahead of the efficiencies the systems will ultimately deliver. Distribution operating margins are projected to improve as the year progresses and we expect to end the year at a strong run rate.”

Please see the MD&A section of the Company's SEC Form 10-K filed concurrent with the issuance of this release for greater detail on our results and various company programs.

Non-GAAP Measure Disclosure

Management believes the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures indicated by an asterisk (*) used in this release or in other disclosures provide important perspectives into the Company's ongoing business performance. The Company does not intend for the information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures. Other companies may define the measures differently. We define the non-GAAP measures used in this report and other disclosures as follows:

Organic Sales per Sales Day - Organic sales per sales day is defined as GAAP net sales of the Distribution segment less sales derived from acquisitions completed during the preceding twelve months, divided by the number of sales days in a given period. Sales days are essentially days that the Company's branch locations are open for business and exclude weekends and holidays. Sales days are provided as part of this release. Management believes organic sales per sales day provides an important perspective on how net sales may be impacted by the number of days the segment is open for business and provides a basis for comparing periods in which the number of sales days differ.

The following table illustrates the calculation of organic sales per sales day using “Net sales: Distribution” from the “Segment and Geographic Information” footnote in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” from the Company's Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2014. Sales from acquisitions are classified as organic beginning with the thirteenth month following the acquisition. Prior period information is adjusted to reflect acquisition sales for that period as organic sales when calculating organic sales per sales day.

Free Cash Flow - Free cash flow is defined as GAAP “Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities” less “Expenditures for property, plant & equipment.” Management believes free cash flow provides an important perspective on the cash available for dividends to shareholders, debt repayment, and acquisitions after making capital investments required to support ongoing business operations and long-term value creation. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as it excludes certain mandatory expenditures such as repayment of maturing debt. Management uses free cash flow internally to assess both business performance and overall liquidity. The following table illustrates the calculation of free cash flow using “Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities” and “Expenditures for property, plant & equipment”, GAAP measures from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

Debt to Capitalization Ratio - Debt to capitalization ratio is calculated by dividing debt by capitalization. Debt is defined as GAAP “Notes payable” plus “Current portion of long-term debt” plus “Long-term debt, excluding current portion.” Capitalization is defined as Debt plus GAAP “Total shareholders' equity”. Management believes debt to capitalization is a measurement of financial leverage and provides an insight into the financial structure of the Company and its financial strength. The following table illustrates the calculation of debt to capitalization using GAAP measures from the consolidated balance sheets included in this release.

Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share - Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share are defined as net earnings and diluted earnings per share, less items that are not indicative of the operating performance of the business for the period presented. These items are included in the reconciliation below. Management uses Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in our business and to assess the Company's performance relative to its competitors. We believe this information is useful for investors and financial institutions seeking to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance.

The following table illustrates the calculation of Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted net earnings per share using “Net earnings” and “Diluted earnings per share” from the “Consolidated Statement of Operations” included in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2014.
