Effective October 1, 2018, Cubic adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as amended (commonly referred to as ASC 606), using the modified retrospective transition method whereby prior periods were not restated. See “New Accounting Standards Implemented” in Cubic’s Form 10-Q for disclosure of the impact of ASC 606.

Consolidated Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Results

Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 29% to $382.7 million, compared to $296.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, reflecting growth from Cubic Transportation Systems and Cubic Mission Solutions. The adoption of the new revenue recognition standard (ASC 606) increased sales by $15.3 million, driven by organic growth from Cubic’s next-generation fare payment system contract in Boston. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $5.4 million.

Operating income in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was $34.7 million, compared to $10.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Operating income was favorably impacted by a $32.6 million gain on the sale of real estate assets in Orlando and San Diego. This increase was partially offset by an increase in acquisition-related expenses and amortization of purchased intangibles for the acquired businesses. Operating income was also impacted by restructuring costs related to supply chain processes and cost optimization initiatives in certain businesses. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $0.3 million.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 9% to $30.6 million, compared to $28.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $0.6 million.

Net income from continuing operations attributable to Cubic in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was $24.1 million, compared to $0.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, reflecting the gain on sale of real estate described above. Adjusted net income was $20.7 million or $0.66 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to $13.1 million or $0.48 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, reflecting higher Adjusted EBITDA and lower taxes, which more than offset increases in shares outstanding and interest expense.

Net cash provided by continuing operations was $1.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to net cash used in continuing operations of $32.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Adjusted Free Cash Flow was positive $52.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to negative $26.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase in Adjusted Free Cash Flow was supported by net proceeds from the sale of real estate totaling $44.9 million and contract milestone payments in the transportation business.

Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS)

CTS sales increased 29% to $212.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to $164.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase in sales was primarily driven by system development on the New York and Boston next-generation fare payment systems contracts, as well as the acquisitions of Trafficware and GRIDSMART. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $4.7 million.

CTS Adjusted EBITDA increased 13% to $24.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to $21.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $0.6 million.

Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS)

CMS sales increased 122% to $95.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to $42.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, reflecting increased deliveries in all CMS product lines, particularly expeditionary satellite communications solutions and secure network products.

CMS Adjusted EBITDA increased 90% to $9.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 from $4.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by accelerated investment in a protected communications contract and increased investment in new technologies.

Cubic Global Defense (CGD)

CGD sales decreased 16% to $75.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to $88.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, reflecting the timing of international orders. Foreign currency translation had an unfavorable impact of $0.7 million.

New Accounting Standards Implemented

Effective October 1, 2018, Cubic adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as amended (commonly referred to as ASC 606), using the modified retrospective transition method whereby prior periods were not restated. The adoption of ASC 606 resulted in a change in the Company’s significant accounting policy regarding revenue recognition and resulted in changes to Cubic’s accounting policies regarding contract estimates, backlog, inventory, contract assets, long-term capitalized contract costs and contract liabilities. The condensed consolidated statements of operations for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2018 and condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018 are presented under the legacy revenue recognition guidance under ASC 605. See “New Accounting Standards Implemented” in Cubic’s Form 10-Q for disclosure of the impact of ASC 606.

In addition, please refer to the risk factors contained in our SEC filings available at www.sec.gov, including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Because the risks, estimates, assumptions and uncertainties referred to above could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date hereof, and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to results reported under GAAP, we provide certain non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures consist of Adjusted net income, Adjusted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS), Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide additional insight into our ongoing operations and underlying business trends, facilitate a comparison of our results between current and prior periods, and facilitate the comparison of our operating results with the results of other public companies that provide non-GAAP measures. We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for strategic planning purposes, and as a factor in determining incentive compensation for certain employees. These non-GAAP measures facilitate company-to-company operating comparisons by excluding items that we believe are not part of our core operating performance. Adjusted net income is defined as GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Cubic excluding amortization of purchased intangibles, restructuring costs, acquisition related expenses, strategic and IT system resource planning expenses, gains or losses on the disposal of fixed assets, other non-operating expense (income), tax impacts related to acquisitions, and the impact of U.S. Tax Reform. Adjusted EPS is defined as Adjusted net income on a per share basis using the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Cubic before interest expense (income), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, other non-operating expense (income), acquisition related expenses, strategic and IT system resource planning expenses, restructuring costs, and gains or losses on the disposal of fixed assets. Strategic and IT system resource planning expenses consists of expenses incurred in the development of our ERP system and the redesign of our supply chain which include internal labor costs and external costs of materials and services that do not qualify for capitalization. Acquisition related expenses include business acquisition expenses including retention bonus expenses, due diligence and consulting costs incurred in connection with the acquisitions, and expenses recognized related to the change in the fair value of contingent consideration for acquisitions.

Free Cash Flow is defined as Net cash provided by (used in) continuing operations minus capital expenditures plus proceeds from the sale of fixed assets. Management believes that Free Cash Flow is meaningful to investors because management reviews cash flows generated from operations after taking into consideration capital expenditures and fixed asset sales, which are necessary to maintain and expand Cubic’s business. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is Free Cash Flow minus operating cash flow associated with the Boston Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) in which Cubic has a 10% equity stake. The SPV has contracted with Cubic for the design-build and operations and maintenance phases of the next-generation fare collection system for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority and pays Cubic progress payments during the design-build phase of the project. These payments are primarily funded by non-recourse debt issued by the SPV. Management believes that Adjusted Free Cash Flow is meaningful to improving investors’ understanding of the underlying performance of and cash generated by the businesses. Additional information regarding the company’s Boston SPV can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2018. Free Cash Flow or Adjusted Free Cash Flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since other non-discretionary expenditures are not deducted from the measure.

These non-GAAP measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to the company or as alternatives to net income as a measure of performance. In addition, other companies may define these non-GAAP measures differently and, as a result, our non-GAAP measures may not be directly comparable to the non-GAAP measures of other companies. Furthermore, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider these measures in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Investors are advised to carefully review our GAAP financial results that are disclosed in our SEC filings. With respect to our fiscal year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS guidance, certain items that affect GAAP net income cannot be reasonably predicted as we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the comparable forecasted GAAP measures without unreasonable effort. As such, we are unable to provide a reasonable estimate of GAAP net income or GAAP EPS, or a corresponding reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS guidance to GAAP net income or GAAP EPS for the full year. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

We reconcile Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income to GAAP net income, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We reconcile Adjusted EPS to GAAP EPS, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. On May 31, 2018 Cubic sold the CGD Services business. The operating results of this business and loss on sale have been excluded from the figures for all periods presented. We reconcile Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to Net cash provided by (used in) continuing operations, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
