May 24, 2017 at 6:01 AM EDT

BERWYN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 24, 2017-- Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE:TGI) (“Triumph” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

Fourth Quarter and Full Fiscal Year 2017 Highlights

  • Net sales were $919.9 million for fourth quarter fiscal year 2017.
  • Operating income for fourth quarter fiscal year 2017 was $150.8 million, reflecting an operating margin of 16% that excludes a $266.3 million non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill for Triumph Aerospace Structures.
  • Net income for fourth quarter fiscal year 2017 was $139.5 million, or $2.81 per diluted share, excluding the aforementioned impairment charge.
  • Fourth quarter fiscal year 2017 results also included transformation related costs of $14.5 million.
  • Cash flow from operations for fourth quarter fiscal year 2017 was $454.0 million, and free cash flow was $498.3 million, both of which included an increase in customer advances of approximately $324.0 million.
  • For the full fiscal year 2017, sales were $3.5 billion, adjusted earnings per diluted share were $6.54 and free cash flow was $315.7 million.

“Our fourth quarter performance and year-end results reflect continued strength in Integrated Systems and Product Support, improved profitability in Precision Components, as well as mutually-beneficial contract amendments in our Aerospace Structures business,” said Daniel J. Crowley, Triumph’s president and chief executive officer. “Over the past four quarters, we continued to improve program performance and rebuild customer confidence, leading to new business opportunities in both commercial and defense markets. As a result of our One Triumph transformation strategy, we realized new operational and go-to-market efficiencies, growing our backlog sequentially as a result of our enhanced business development efforts. At the same time, we are addressing the operational and financial challenges in Aerospace Structures to better position this business unit for the future.”

“Under our transformation plan, we delivered three consecutive quarters of improved free cash flow and exceeded our fiscal year 2017 cost reduction goals, realizing $69 million in savings which will benefit future years. We anticipate an incremental $70 million in cost savings in fiscal year 2018. Looking ahead, we will continue to enhance shareholder value from a stronger backlog and improved performance across the business.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Overview

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 declined 13% from the prior year quarter. On an organic basis, excluding the impact of divestitures, sales were down 13% primarily due to production rate reductions by customers on the 747-8, C-17 and G450/550 programs, changes in model mix, decreased volume in military end market and foreign exchange rates. These factors were partially offset by increased production rates on the 767/Tanker program and stronger organic sales in the Product Support segment resulting from key contract wins with regional and commercial operators for structures and interiors.

Operating income included $14.5 million of restructuring costs and an impairment charge of $266.3 million. Cumulative catch-up adjustments on long-term contracts were a net favorable $72.7 million, which included the benefit of positive adjustments related to the 747-8 program.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $126.8 million, or a loss of $2.57 per share. Triumph’s results included the following:

The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 was 49.4 million.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, cash flow from operations was $454.0 million, which included approximately $324.0 million of increases in customer advances. Excluding these increases in customer advances, cash flow from operations was $130.0 million, a sequential improvement from a cash use of $41.4 million resulting from strong working capital management partially offset by continued investment in key development programs and restructuring efforts. As previously announced, on May 5, 2017, Triumph reached an agreement with its lender group on amendments to its credit agreement to provide the Company with greater financial flexibility as it continues executing its transformation plan.

Outlook

Based on anticipated aircraft production rates and divestitures completed in fiscal year 2017, the Company forecasts revenue for fiscal year 2018 to be approximately $3.1 to $3.2 billion, and to increase in fiscal year 2019 as development programs enter into production and sales from new wins offset sunsetting programs. The Company will provide additional fiscal year 2018 guidance when it has analyzed the impact of recently settled contracts and has greater visibility regarding the timing of ongoing customer negotiations.

Commenting on the outlook, Mr. Crowley said, “During fiscal 2018, we will demonstrate follow-through on our comprehensive efforts in fiscal 2017 to streamline our structure, reduce costs, resolve contract issues, and grow our backlog. We remain focused on performing to our commitments and enhancing our customer relationships which we expect to lead to improving profitability, stronger free cash flow and, ultimately, greater value for our shareholders.”

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:

 

  • 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 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.

Cash provided by operations, is provided for consistency and comparability. We also use free cash flow as a key factor in
planning for and consideration of strategic acquisitions 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 to free cash flow.
