Astronics Corporation Reports 2019 Second Quarter Financial Results

  • Sales for the quarter were $189.1 million; after adjusting for the divested semiconductor business, sales increased 5.4%
  • Consolidated orders for the quarter were $170.7 million
  • Backlog at the end of the quarter was $380 million
  • Updated outlook for 2019 reflects rescheduled programs, delayed business jet antenna program and 737 MAX grounding

EAST AURORA, N.Y.--()--Astronics Corporation (Nasdaq: ATRO), a leading supplier of advanced technologies and products to the global aerospace and defense industries, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 29, 2019. Earnings per share for prior periods are adjusted for the 3 for 20 (15%) distribution of Class B Stock for shareholders of record on October 12, 2018. Financial results include the divestiture of the Test Systems’ semiconductor business on February 13, 2019.

Peter J. Gundermann, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Financial results in the quarter were as expected with sales, after adjusting for the sale of the semiconductor business, up 5% over last year’s second quarter, but down from the robust level we had in the first quarter. For the first half of the year, adjusted sales were up over 12%. During the quarter we completed our initial restructuring initiatives in both the Test Systems and Aerospace segments and expect to realize approximately $8 million to $9 million in annualized savings beginning in the third quarter this year.”

He added, “Our outlook for the second half of the year is weaker than our previous expectations as our business jet antenna program was delayed due to an unusual satellite failure. We also have seen indications of a slowdown in demand for connectivity hardware. While this is concerning for the near term, we remain encouraged with the opportunities we have in this market because of the breadth of our product offerings. Airline passengers continue to indicate that inflight entertainment (IFE) is a critical element of their flight choice decision and airlines are moving quickly to determine the best method for delivering this to their customers. We are uniquely positioned to offer a complete suite of cost competitive hardware for both the airline’s and the IFE providers’ needs, whatever service is employed.”

For comparability purposes, in addition to reporting consolidated and segment results of operations on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this press release also contains certain financial information regarding consolidated sales, operating income and net income, as well as Test Systems segment sales and operating profit, adjusted to remove the effects of the divested semiconductor business from all periods presented. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding the performance of the ongoing business. The reconciliation of GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures is contained in the section labeled "Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Performance Measures".

Consolidated Review

Second Quarter 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Consolidated sales were down 9.4%, or $19.5 million, including sales of the semiconductor business which was divested in the first quarter of 2019. Excluding the divestiture, adjusted consolidated sales were up 5.4%, or $9.7 million, demonstrating growth in both the Aerospace and Test Systems segments.

Consolidated operating income decreased to $10.6 million, or 5.6% of sales, compared with

$20.1 million, or 9.6% of sales in the prior-year period. The decline was primarily due to the divestiture of the semiconductor business. Adjusted consolidated income from operations excluding the operations of the divested semiconductor test business was $8.5 million, or 4.6% of adjusted consolidated sales, compared with $9.9 million, or 5.6% of adjusted consolidated sales, in the prior-year period.

Impacts to operating income and margin included $2.2 million in severance charges associated with restructuring initiatives, tariff expenses of $2.3 million and operating losses of $7.7 million related to the challenged Aerospace businesses. The $7.7 million operating loss included a charge for inventory reserves of $1.6 million. Operating losses related to challenged Aerospace businesses were $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $10.7 million in the trailing first quarter of 2019.

Mr. Gundermann commented, “We made solid progress with the restructuring of operations in both our Aerospace and Test Systems to right-size the organization to our current expectations and improve our operating performance. We expect that the $8 million to $9 million in expected annual savings from the restructuring will begin to be apparent in our third quarter as much of the activity was completed later in the second quarter. Given the delays in certain programs, we plan to make additional changes in the organization over the next several months and would expect additional restructuring expense, as well as related cost savings, in future quarters.”

The effective tax rate for the quarter was 23.8%, compared with 18.4% in the second quarter of 2018. The 2019 second quarter tax rate was unfavorably impacted by the gain on the sale of the semiconductor business.

Net income was $6.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with $14.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share in the prior year.

Bookings were $170.7 million, for a book-to-bill ratio, excluding semiconductor activity, of 0.91:1. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $379.7 million. Approximately $263.9 million of backlog is expected to ship in the remainder of 2019.

Year-to-Date 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Consolidated sales were up 2.5%, or $9.6 million. Excluding sales of the semiconductor business, adjusted consolidated sales were up 12.2%, or $42.5 million, demonstrating growth in both the Aerospace and Test Systems segments.

Consolidated operating income improved to $33.5 million, or 8.4% of sales, compared with

$26.8 million, or 6.9% of sales in the prior-year period.

Adjusted consolidated operating income was $30.5 million, or 7.8% of adjusted consolidated sales, compared with $15.9 million, or 4.5% of adjusted consolidated sales, in the prior-year period. Margin expansion was driven by higher volume. These effects more than offset tariff expenses of $4.0 million and severance charges of $2.2 million. The challenged Aerospace businesses had $18.4 million of operating losses, which included a charge for inventory reserves of $3.6 million. Losses from the challenged Aerospace businesses, including program charges in the first half of 2018, were $17.1 million.

The effective tax rate for the first six months of 2019 was 22.7%, compared with 18.0% in the same period of 2018. The tax rate was unfavorably impacted by the gain on the sale of the semiconductor business.

Net income was $84.9 million, or $2.56 per diluted share, compared with $17.3 million, or $0.52 per diluted share in the prior year. The $80.1 million gain on the sale of the semiconductor test business is expected to contribute $58.8 million to net income after taxes. Adjusted net income, excluding the divested semiconductor test business, was $22.4 million in the first six months of 2019 compared with $8.6 million in the prior-year period.

Aerospace Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)

Aerospace Second Quarter 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Aerospace segment sales increased $8.1 million, or 4.9%, to $174.3 million, although Aerospace sales declined sequentially from $188.5 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Electrical Power & Motion sales increased $16.4 million, or 24.2%, due primarily to higher sales in cabin power products. Sales of Lighting & Safety products were up $2.6 million due to an increase in sales of lighting products partially offset by lower sales of passenger service units. Avionics sales were down $10.6 million compared with the prior-year period due to a lower demand in the quarter for inflight entertainment and connectivity (“IFEC”) products.

Aerospace operating profit was $14.4 million, or 8.3% of sales, compared with $18.2 million, or 11.0% of sales, in the same period last year. Aerospace operating profit benefited from higher volume, offset by $2.3 million in tariffs. The challenged Aerospace businesses had $7.7 million of

operating losses, including a $1.6 million inventory reserve. Operating losses for the challenged Aerospace businesses in the second quarter of 2018 were $8.1 million including a $1.6 million

program charge recognized due to the revision of estimated costs to complete a long-term contract.

Restructuring initiatives are expected to provide approximately $3 million in annual savings for the Aerospace segment beginning in the third quarter of 2019.

Aerospace bookings in the second quarter of 2019 were $157.6 million, for a book-to-bill ratio of 0.90:1. Backlog was $310.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2019.

Mr. Gundermann commented, “Demand during the quarter was negatively affected by a couple of events in the industry. The first of these was the unusual loss of a satellite in April that was critical to our planned connectivity system for large business jets. This loss has caused the program to be paused this year, which lowers anticipated shipments and delays the revival of our AeroSat business. The second event is the industry’s concern related to Boeing’s 737 MAX situation, which negatively affects our volume for the 737 MAX production line, but also complicates fleet management plans for airlines, which in some cases may delay certain upgrade initiatives until resolution is apparent.”

Mr. Gundermann continued, “Despite the $7.7 million operating loss from our three challenged aerospace businesses, we are making good progress towards break-even. We have line of sight to this end for two of the three businesses. The third, AeroSat, faces a more difficult task with the delay in the tail-mount antenna program for large business jets. This delay hurt AeroSat’s financial performance in the second quarter, when it generated about 70% of the trio’s collective operating loss. We are watching the situation closely and will be deciding an appropriate action as the situation becomes clearer.”

Aerospace Year-to-Date 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Aerospace segment sales increased by $32.0 million, or 9.7%, to $362.8 million when compared with the prior year’s first six months.

Electrical Power & Motion sales increased $36.3 million, or 25.8%, and Lighting & Safety sales increased $9.6 million, both for similar reasons as in the quarter. Sales of Avionics products were down $9.8 million to $59.5 million, and Systems Certification sales decreased $4.0 million compared with the first six months of 2018.

Aerospace operating profit was $40.2 million, or 11.1% of sales, compared with $31.3 million, or 9.5% of sales, in the same period last year. Aerospace operating profit in the first six months of 2019 benefited from higher volume and $2.3 million lower amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets. These benefits were offset by $4.0 million in tariffs and $18.4 million in operating losses from the challenged businesses, which included $3.6 million in inventory reserves. Operating profit in the first half of 2018 was negatively impacted by $17.1 million in operating loss from challenged Aerospace businesses and $1.4 million in acquisition-related inventory step-up expense.

Test Systems Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)

Test Systems Second Quarter 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Test Segment sales decreased $27.6 million to $14.8 million as a result of the divestiture of the semiconductor business. Adjusted Test Systems segment sales, excluding the semiconductor test business from both periods, were up $1.6 million, or 14%, to $12.6 million.

The Test segment was essentially breakeven in the quarter compared with operating profit of

$6.2 million in last year’s second quarter. Adjusted for the sale of the semiconductor business, there was an operating loss of $2.2 million compared with an operating loss of $3.9 million in the prior-year period. Impacting the loss in the quarter were severance charges of $2.0 million related to the restructuring initiatives, which are expected to provide savings of $5 million to $6 million beginning in the third quarter.

Bookings for the Test Systems segment in the quarter were $13.0 million, for a book-to-bill ratio, excluding semiconductor activity, of 1.01:1 for the quarter. Backlog was $69.1 million at the end of the second quarter of 2019.

Mr. Gundermann commented, “Our Test business accomplished a major restructuring in the quarter that will help it adjust to the road ahead, subsequent to the sale of our semiconductor test business. In July, we acquired Freedom Communications Technologies, which represents a nice market and technology extension for our remaining test business. We are pleased to have Freedom as part of our team and are excited to see what we can accomplish together.”

Test Systems Year-to-Date 2019 Results (compared with the prior-year period, unless noted otherwise)

Test Segment sales decreased $22.4 million to $34.5 million compared with $56.9 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted Test Systems segment sales, excluding the semiconductor test business from both periods, were up 57% compared with the prior year to $28.9 million, driven by growth in the Aerospace & Defense market.

Operating profit for the segment was $2.1 million, or 6.0% of sales, compared with operating income of $4.3 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted for the sale of the semiconductor business, there was an operating loss for the segment of $0.9 million which was mostly the result of

$2.0 million in restructuring costs. Operating loss in the prior-year period adjusted for the divestiture of the semiconductor business was $6.6 million.

2019 Outlook

Consolidated sales are expected to be in the range of $740 million to $775 million, of which

$680 million to $700 million is expected from the Aerospace segment and $60 million to $75 million is expected from the Test segment.

Mr. Gundermann concluded, “The approximate 5% reduction at the mid-point of our expectations for the Aerospace segment reflects the impact of the delay of the business jet antenna program and the related satellite failure, along with some softening of demand for IFEC products, which we believe is at least in part a result of the 737 MAX situation, and the delay into 2020 of an unrelated customer program. We are disappointed with the confluence of these events and are looking more closely at changes to the organization to align costs with our new revenue expectations. In the meantime, we expect the restructuring initiatives we completed in the second quarter will generate approximately $8 million to $9 million in annual savings that should be realized beginning in the third quarter and should help to offset the impact on margin of lower volume.”

Consolidated backlog at June 29, 2019 was $379.7 million. Approximately 70% of the backlog is expected to ship in 2019.

The effective tax rate for 2019, excluding the impact of the gain on the sale of the semiconductor business, is expected to be in the range of 15% to 19%.

Capital equipment spending in 2019 is expected to be between $22 million to $28 million.

* The non-GAAP adjustment eliminates all semiconductor test sales and associated direct costs from all periods presented. There are significant indirect costs, overheads, and other general and administrative costs that are not included in the non-GAAP adjustment, as such functions benefited all operations and products within the Test Systems segment and have not been eliminated as a result of the divestiture. The non-GAAP adjustment to net income for the three-month and six-month period ended June 29, 2019 also eliminates the impact of the gain on the sale of the semiconductor business, net of tax at the forecasted consolidated tax rate for 2019.

 (*) During the first quarter of 2019, Test Systems segment backlog of approximately $12.2 million was disposed of in the divestiture of the semiconductor business. Aerospace backlog of approximately $2.0 million has been removed in the second quarter of 2019 above related to the airfield lighting product line, which was divested in July 2019.

(**) Calculations of Test Systems and Total Book:Bill excludes the total semiconductor business, which does include residual warranty backlog that is expected to be recognized.
