  • Income from continuing operations for second quarter fiscal 2010 was $20.7 million, or $1.25 per diluted share

WAYNE, Pa., Oct 26, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE:TGI) today reported that net sales for the second quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2010 totaled $313.1 million, a three percent decrease from last year's second quarter net sales of $323.4 million. Income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $20.7 million, or $1.25 per diluted share, versus $25.1 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, for the second quarter of the prior year. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $19.5 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, versus $24.0 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, for the second quarter of the prior year. The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was 16.6 million shares. During the quarter, the company generated $40.8 million of cash flow from operations. The results for the quarter included $1.5 million of incremental non-cash interest expense associated with the adoption of APB 14-1, which required a change in the accounting for convertible debt interest, and approximately $1.0 million of start up costs related to the Mexican facility. Prior year period results were also restated to reflect the adoption of APB 14-1, resulting in an incremental $1.6 million of interest expense over the previously reported amount.

Net sales for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 were $629.3 million, a two percent decrease from net sales of $643.9 million last fiscal year. Income from continuing operations for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was $42.2 million, or $2.54 per diluted share. Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2010 was $37.5 million, or $2.26 per diluted share. During the six months ended September 30, 2009, the company generated $73.3 million of cash flow from operations.

Aerospace Systems

The Aerospace Systems segment reported net sales for the quarter of $256.4 million compared to $257.6 million in the prior year period. Organic sales decreased ten percent over the prior year due to the continued decline in the business jet market, program delays particularly on the Boeing 787 aircraft and the softening of the regional jet market. Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $39.1 million, compared to $46.5 million for the prior year period. Operating income for the quarter included $1.2 million of legal expenses associated with the ongoing trade secret litigation.

Aftermarket Services

The Aftermarket Services segment reported net sales for the quarter of $57.3 million compared to $66.5 million in the prior year, a decrease of fourteen percent primarily due to lower passenger and freight traffic and the continued effects of airline inventory de-stocking. Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $3.5 million, compared to $2.9 million for the prior year period, a twenty percent increase. Operating performance at the Phoenix APU businesses improved to a small profit for the quarter.

Outlook

Commenting on the company's performance and its outlook, Richard C. Ill, Triumph's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "In light of current market conditions, we are pleased with our performance in our second quarter. We continue to control costs and strengthen our balance sheet with strong cash generation and working capital management. Despite the uncertain and inconsistent operating environment, we continue to see opportunities for our company to grow and improve, such as the recently announced development award on the Sikorsky CH-53K aircraft."

"Based on current projected aircraft production rates and our existing share count, we are maintaining our prior guidance that earnings per share from continuing operations for the current fiscal year will be approximately $5.00 per diluted share."
