TRIUMPH GROUP REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER FISCAL 2018 RESULTS
Introduces Fiscal Year 2019 Guidance Reflecting Year-Over-Year Sales Growth


BERWYN, Pa. - May 10, 2018 - Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE: TGI) (“Triumph” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018, which ended March 31, 2018.

Full Fiscal and Fourth Quarter 2018 Highlights
For the full fiscal year 2018, sales were $3.2 billion, loss per share was ($8.48), or earnings per diluted share of $2.53 on an adjusted basis, cash used in operations was ($288.9) million and free cash use was ($330.9) million.
Net sales were $896.9 million for fourth quarter fiscal year 2018.
Operating loss for fourth quarter fiscal year 2018 was ($280.0) million, reflecting an operating margin of (31.2%), and included a previously disclosed $345.0 million non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill in Aerospace Structures. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $71.1 million with an adjusted operating margin of 7.9%.
Net loss for the fourth quarter fiscal year 2018 was ($298.8) million, or ($6.04) per share, and included a $6.91 per share charge related to the aforementioned impairment charge. On an adjusted basis, net income was $50.1 million, or $1.01 per diluted share.
Cash used in operations for fourth quarter fiscal year 2018 was ($90.6) million, and free cash use was ($100.7) million.
Management provides guidance for fiscal 2019 for net sales of $3.3 to $3.4 billion and earnings per diluted share of $0.00 to $0.50, or $1.50 to $2.10 on an adjusted basis.
“Triumph Group’s fourth quarter results reflect strategic and operational accomplishments as we continue on our path to predictable profitability. We ended the year within our guidance on all measures while net sales increased on a sequential basis, with all three of our segments delivering top line growth.” stated Daniel J. Crowley, Triumph’s president and chief executive officer. “Product Support generated year-over-year margin improvement while Integrated Systems produced both year-over-year and sequential improvement in margin.”

Mr. Crowley continued, “During the quarter, we continued to strengthen our relationships with our customers as we work towards mutually beneficial arrangements as well as program optimization. Our business development results continue to accelerate with new awards yielding a book-to-bill ratio of greater than one for the fifth consecutive quarter and increasing our backlog to $4.49 billion, up 3% sequentially and 13% year-over-year. As part of the ongoing optimization of our portfolio, we completed the divestiture of another non-core business during the fiscal fourth quarter, which we expect to contribute incrementally to our cash flow in fiscal 2019.”

Mr. Crowley concluded, “We are well positioned in FY19 to return to top-line growth as development programs enter production and we expect our cost reduction progress to lead to more consistent profitability. As demonstrated between fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018, we expect cash flow to improve year over year in fiscal 2019. We are refining our outlook for fiscal 2019 cash guidance to account for potential contract settlements under discussion now, divestitures and working capital needs. We will provide our cash flow outlook, in addition to updates on our progress towards our other guidance targets, in future quarters.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Overview

After accounting for divestitures, sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 were up organically from the comparable prior year period, reflecting higher production deliveries on the Global Hawk/Triton, Global 7000, and G650 programs partially offset by the completion of and production rate reductions on previously disclosed programs.

Fourth quarter operating loss of ($280.0) million included a previously disclosed $345.0 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge for Aerospace Structures as well as the other adjustments shown below. Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 was ($298.8) million, or ($6.04) per share, or $1.01 earnings per diluted share on an adjusted basis. Triumph’s results included the following:

The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 was 49.8 million and 49.7 million for the full fiscal year 2018.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2018, cash flow used in operations was ($90.6) million, reflecting approximately ($55.0) million for the net liquidation of customer advances, along with spending on key development programs transitioning into production and transformation related costs.

Outlook

Based on anticipated aircraft production rates and completed divestitures, the Company expects that revenue for fiscal year 2019 will be approximately $3.3 to $3.4 billion, up from fiscal 2018 as development programs enter production and sales from continuing programs and new wins offset sunsetting programs. Additionally, the Company expects fiscal year 2019 earnings per diluted share to be $0.00 to $0.50, or $1.50 to $2.10 adjusted for pension accounting changes and transformation related costs.

The Company’s current outlook reflects adjustments detailed in the attached tables but does not take into account the impact of any potential future divestitures. In addition, the Company’s outlook is inclusive of the projected impact of the adoption of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers and ASU 2017-07 (Pension).

Conference Call

Triumph Group will hold a conference call today, May 10th at 8:30 a.m. (ET) to discuss the fourth quarter fiscal year 2018 results. The conference call will be available live and archived on the Company’s website at http://www.triumphgroup.com. A slide presentation will be included with the audio portion of the webcast. An audio replay will be available from May 10th to May 17th by calling (855) 859-2056 (Domestic) or (404) 537-3406 (International), passcode #4373459.

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:
Divestitures may be useful for investors to consider because they reflect gains or losses from sale of operating units. We do not believe these earnings necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
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 gains or losses 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 (including impairments) 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.
 
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.
