  • Net sales for third quarter fiscal year 2015 increased to $917.4 million
  • Operating loss for third quarter fiscal year 2015 was ($61.3) million and included a pre-tax charge of $152.0 million for forward losses associated with the 747-8 program through the duration of the contract
  • Net loss per share for third quarter fiscal year 2015 was ($0.79), which included certain items described below totaling ($2.20) per diluted share. Excluding these items, net income was $72.1 million and earnings per share were $1.42 per diluted share
  • Year-to-date cash flow from operations before pension contributions of $55.9 million was $365.9 million
  • Successfully completed agreement to assume production of Gulfstream G650 and G280 wing programs

BERWYN, Pa.--()--Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE: TGI) today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2015, which ended December 31, 2014.

“During the third quarter, we continued to extend Triumph’s core capabilities in complex aerostructures with the assumption of the Gulfstream G650 and G280 wing programs and we are pleased with the progress of the transition to date,” said Jeffry D. Frisby, Triumph’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, our Aerospace Systems Group and Aftermarket Services Group continued to perform well, delivering positive organic revenue growth and sustaining their strong operating margins. We generated strong cash flow during the quarter, enabling us to reduce our debt and opportunistically buy back shares to return capital to our shareholders and we remain focused on driving value through enhanced execution, identifying efficiencies and pursuing strategic growth opportunities.”

“Following Boeing’s recent 747-8 rate cut announcement, we conducted an in-depth review of our assumptions for the program through the end of the contract and recorded a one-time charge in the fiscal third quarter to account for forward losses. The charges are a prudent measure that considers, among other factors, lower expected build rates as well as higher actual and forecasted costs than originally targeted for the duration of our contract. Notwithstanding this decision, we will continue to take actions to reduce costs and enhance performance on the 747-8 program.”

Net sales for the fiscal third quarter of 2015 were $917.4 million, up from fiscal third quarter 2014 net sales of $915.8 million. Organic sales for the quarter decreased seven percent primarily due to decreased production on the C-17 program and lower non-recurring revenue. Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was ($39.8) million, or ($0.79) per share, compared to $35.4 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the third quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Results in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 included charges in the Aerostructures segment of $169.2 million pre-tax, or ($2.16) per diluted share, as detailed in the segment results discussion below. The majority of these costs were related to a forward loss charge of $152.0 million pre-tax, or ($1.94) per diluted share, associated with the 747-8 program to cover the duration of the contract. In addition, operating results for the quarter included $3.5 million pre-tax, or ($0.04) per diluted share, of transaction fees related to the assumption of the Gulfstream G650 and G280 wing programs. Excluding these items, earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $1.42 per diluted share. Excluding non-recurring items, earnings per share for the prior fiscal year’s third quarter were $0.99 per diluted share. The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share on an adjusted basis for the quarter was 50.8 million shares.

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal year 2015 were $2.808 billion, down slightly from net sales of $2.827 billion for the comparable period of the last fiscal year. Net income for the nine months of fiscal year 2015 was $155.9 million, or $3.04 per diluted share, versus $164.0 million, or $3.11 per diluted share, in the prior year period. In addition to the third quarter charges totaling $172.7 million pre-tax described above, the year-to-date results included the first two quarters of fiscal year 2015 costs related to the Red Oak facility transition, the refinancing of the Senior Notes due 2018 and a gain, net of legal fees, related to the settlement of the Eaton litigation. Excluding these items, net income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2015 was $206.6 million, or $4.02 per diluted share.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2014, the company generated $365.9 million of cash flow from operations before pension contributions of $55.9 million; after these contributions, cash flow from operations was $310.0 million.

During the quarter, the company repurchased 336,271 shares of stock under the company’s existing 5.5 million share repurchase authorization. As of December 31, 2014, approximately 3.5 million shares remained under the share repurchase authorization.

Segment Results

Aerostructures

The Aerostructures segment reported net sales of $559.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 compared to $637.2 million in the prior year period. Organic sales for the quarter declined eleven percent primarily due to decreased production on the C-17 program and lower non-recurring revenue. Operating loss for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was ($102.5) million, compared to operating income of $54.0 million for the prior year period, and included a net unfavorable cumulative catch-up adjustment on long-term contracts of $2.1 million. Excluding the 747-8 program, there was a net favorable cumulative catch-up adjustment of $0.9 million. Operating results for the quarter included a one-time $152.0 million pre-tax charge for forward losses and a $3.0 million unfavorable cumulative catch-up adjustment associated with the 747-8 program. The forward loss charges reflect anticipated production rate cuts through the duration of the contract, which extends into fiscal year 2019, and revised cost estimates due to higher actual and forecasted costs, including the impact of the new mortality tables on the pension obligations. Also included in operating results were $3.3 million of costs related to the Red Oak facility transition as well as $13.9 million of charges related to lower than expected performance at Triumph Structures- International. Excluding these items, the segment’s operating margin for the quarter was 16 percent.

Aerospace Systems

The Aerospace Systems segment reported net sales of $279.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 compared to $211.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of thirty-two percent, reflecting the impact of the Triumph Actuation Systems-Yakima and Triumph Actuation Systems-UK and IOM acquisitions completed at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Organic sales growth for the quarter was two percent. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $41.9 million compared to $32.5 million for the prior year period, an increase of twenty-nine percent, reflecting an operating margin of fifteen percent. Organic operating margin for the quarter was sixteen percent as compared to fifteen percent for the prior year period.

Aftermarket Services

The Aftermarket Services segment reported net sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 of $80.7 million compared to $69.6 million in the prior year period, an increase of sixteen percent, reflecting the impact of the Triumph Aviation Services-NAAS Division acquisition completed early in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015. Organic sales growth for the quarter was seven percent. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $12.5 million compared to $9.3 million for the prior year period, an increase of thirty-four percent, reflecting an operating margin of sixteen percent.

Outlook

Mr. Frisby continued, “We took important steps during the quarter to significantly reduce the risk on the future performance of our 747-8 program and to extend our core capabilities to drive growth and value to our shareholders. Completing the transfer of the Gulfstream G650 and G280 wing programs was an important milestone that enhances our leadership position in that sector. We believe that we are well positioned in our end markets and are committed to leveraging the strength of our portfolio to drive growth.”

Based on current projected aircraft production rates, the company now expects revenue for fiscal year 2015 to be approximately $3.9 billion and earnings per share for the fourth quarter fiscal 2015 to be approximately $1.70, excluding Red Oak facility transition costs and based on a weighted average share count of 50.6 million shares. The company updated its expectation for Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter fiscal 2015 to be approximately $165.0 million, which excludes the Red Oak facility transition costs, and expects to generate free cash flow available for debt reduction, acquisitions and share repurchases after pension contributions for the fiscal year of approximately $300.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Disclosures

We prepare and publicly release quarterly unaudited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) guidance on Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations, we also disclose and discuss certain non-GAAP financial measures in our public releases. Currently, the non-GAAP financial measure that we disclose is Adjusted EBITDA, which is our net income before interest, income taxes, amortization of acquired contract liabilities, curtailments, settlements and early retirement incentives, legal settlements, depreciation and amortization. We disclose Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated and an operating segment basis in our earnings releases, investor conference calls and filings with the SEC. The non-GAAP financial measures that we use may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Also, in the future, we may disclose different non-GAAP financial measures in order to help our investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare our future results of operations to our previously reported results of operations.

We view Adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure and as such we believe that the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to it is net income. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude from net income the financial items that we believe should be separately identified to provide additional analysis of the financial components of the day-to-day operation of our business. We have outlined below the type and scope of these exclusions and the material limitations on the use of these non-GAAP financial measures as a result of these exclusions. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity, as an alternative to net income (loss), income from continuing operations, or as an indicator of any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors in our securities should not rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a substitute for any GAAP financial measure, including net income (loss) or income from continuing operations. In addition, we urge investors and potential investors in our securities to carefully review the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income set forth below, in our earnings releases and in other filings with the SEC and to carefully review the GAAP financial information included as part of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our Annual Reports on Form 10-K that are filed with the SEC, as well as our quarterly earnings releases, and compare the GAAP financial information with our Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to internally measure our operating and management performance and by investors as a supplemental financial measure to evaluate the performance of our business that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, we believe provides additional information that is useful to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. We have spent more than 15 years expanding our product and service capabilities partially through acquisitions of complementary businesses. Due to the expansion of our operations, which included acquisitions, our net income has included significant charges for depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes these charges and provides meaningful information about the operating performance of our business, apart from charges for depreciation and amortization. We believe the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA helps investors meaningfully evaluate and compare our performance from quarter to quarter and from year to year. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our ongoing operating performance because the isolation of non-cash income and expenses, such as amortization of acquired contract liabilities, depreciation and amortization, and non-operating items, such as interest and income taxes, provides additional information about our cost structure, and, over time, helps track our operating progress. In addition, investors, securities analysts and others have regularly relied on Adjusted EBITDA to provide a financial measure by which to compare our operating performance against that of other companies in our industry.

Set forth below are descriptions of the financial items that have been excluded from our net income to calculate Adjusted EBITDA and the material limitations associated with using this non-GAAP financial measure as compared to net income:

  • Legal settlements may be useful to investors to consider because they reflect gains or losses from disputes with third parties. We do not believe that these earnings necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Curtailments, settlements and early retirement incentives may be useful to investors to consider because it represents the current period impact of the change in defined benefit obligation due to the reduction in future service costs. We do not believe these charges (gains) necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Amortization of acquired contract liabilities may be useful for investors to consider because it represents the non-cash earnings on the fair value of below market contracts acquired through acquisitions. We do not believe these earnings necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Amortization expenses may be useful for investors to consider because it represents the estimated attrition of our acquired customer base and the diminishing value of product rights and licenses. We do not believe these charges necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash charges related to our operating cost structure.
  • Depreciation may be useful for investors to consider because they generally represent the wear and tear on our property and equipment used in our operations. We do not believe these charges necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash charges related to our operating cost structure.
  • The amount of interest expense and other we incur may be useful for investors to consider and may result in current cash inflows or outflows. However, we do not consider the amount of interest expense and other to be a representative component of the day-to-day operating performance of our business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Disclosures (continued)

  • Income tax expense may be useful for investors to consider because it generally represents the taxes which may be payable for the period and the change in deferred income taxes during the period and may reduce the amount of funds otherwise available for use in our business. However, we do not consider the amount of income tax expense to be a representative component of the day-to-day operating performance of our business.

Management compensates for the above-described limitations of using non-GAAP measures by using a non-GAAP measure only to supplement our GAAP results and to provide additional information that is useful to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business.

Modified Adjusted EBITDA is included to adjust for the impacts of our recent relocation from our Jefferson Street Facility and our provision for forward losses on our 747-8 long-term contract, in order to show the more comparable results period to period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Disclosures (continued)

Cash provided by operations, before pension contributions has been provided for consistency and comparability. We also use free cash flow available for debt reduction as a key factor in planning for and consideration of strategic acquisitions, stock repurchases and the repayment of debt. This measure should not be considered in isolation, as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to operating results presented in accordance with GAAP. The following table reconciles cash provided by operations, before pension contributions to cash provided by operations, as well as cash provided by operations to free cash flow available for debt reduction.
