Woodward Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Results

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWD) today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2019 ending June 30, 2019.  (All amounts are presented on an as reported (U.S. GAAP) basis and comparisons are year over year unless otherwise indicated. All per share amounts are presented on a fully diluted basis.)

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales were $752 million, up 28 percent. Organic net sales1 were $673 million, up 20 percent
  • Earnings per share increased to $1.02, up from $0.77
  • Adjusted earnings per share1 were $1.30, up from $1.12
  • Cash from operations for the first nine months of 2019 was $219 million; free cash flow1 was $141 million

“Fundamentals in our Aerospace and Industrial segments remain strong. Our Aerospace segment continued to deliver great results while overcoming lower initial provisioning related to the Boeing 737MAX. The Industrial segment continues to show year-over-year improvement, despite headwinds related to renewables,” said Thomas A. Gendron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Woodward. “Looking forward, we believe we will finish the year with sales and earnings in the upper end of our previous guidance.”

Third Quarter Company Results

Woodward adopted the FASB Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC 606”) effective October 1, 2018, and results for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2019, including adjusted and organic amounts, are presented on that basis. We continue to believe the impact of adoption of the new standard will not be material for the full fiscal year 2019, although there will be ongoing quarterly variability in both sales and net earnings resulting from the adoption of ASC 606 as compared to those amounts under ASC 605. In the third quarter, Woodward identified an inconsistency in the application of ASC 606, which had an immaterial financial impact to our ASC 606 results for each of the three quarters of fiscal 2019. The inconsistency also immaterially affected the opening balance in retained earnings as of October 1, 2018. The impacts were recorded in the third quarter and year-to-date results are unaffected.  Please refer to the tables included in this release and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

Net sales were $752 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $588 million for the prior year quarter. Organic net sales for the third quarter of 2019, which exclude sales attributable to Woodward L’Orange, were $673 million, compared to $563 million in the prior year quarter, an increase of 20 percent. The prior year quarter included one month of Woodward L’Orange sales.

Net earnings were $66 million for the third quarter of 2019, or $1.02 per share, compared to $49 million, or $0.77 per share, for the prior year quarter.

Adjusted net earnings were $84 million for the third quarter of 2019, or $1.30 per share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $71 million, or $1.12 per share, for the prior year quarter.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2019 was 28.4 percent, compared to 9.7 percent in the prior year. The effective tax rate for the current quarter was impacted by $11 million of tax expense related to the transition impacts of the change in U.S. tax legislation.

Segment Results

Aerospace
Aerospace segment net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 were $499 million, compared to $405 million for the third quarter a year ago, an increase of 23 percent.

Aerospace segment sales in the quarter benefitted from continued strength across commercial OEM and military markets, partially offset by lower commercial aftermarket. OEM sales have not been significantly impacted by the effects of the Boeing 737MAX grounding, although initial provisioning was lower as anticipated.

Segment earnings for the third quarter of 2019 were $103 million, compared to $84 million for the same quarter last year. The increase in segment earnings was primarily the result of higher sales volume in the quarter.

Segment earnings as a percent of segment sales were 20.7 percent for the third quarters of both 2019 and 2018.

Industrial
Industrial segment net sales for the third quarter of 2019 were $253 million, compared to $184 million for the third quarter of 2018. Organic Industrial segment net sales1 for the third quarter of 2019, which excludes sales of $79 million attributable to Woodward L’Orange, were $175 million, a 10 percent increase as compared to $159 million in the prior year quarter, which excludes one month of Woodward L’Orange sales. Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact on organic sales of approximately $6 million for the third quarter of 2019. On a constant currency basis organic sales would have increased approximately 14 percent.

Industrial segment sales were driven by strong natural gas vehicle sales in China and the addition of Woodward L’Orange, partially offset by continuing challenges in our renewables business.

On April 9, 2019, Senvion GmbH, a German wind turbine manufacturer and a significant customer to Woodward’s renewables business, filed insolvency proceedings and declared it would be exploring options for the sale or partial liquidation of the company. Although our exposure specifically with respect to Senvion is not material to Woodward as a whole, the potential loss of this customer would be significant to the renewables business. We continue to monitor these proceedings and any potential future impacts.

Industrial segment earnings for the third quarter of 2019 were $26 million, or 10.4 percent of segment sales, compared to $11 million, or 6.0 percent of segment sales, in the third quarter a year ago.

Adjusted Industrial segment earnings1 for the third quarter of 2019 were $29 million, or 11.4 percent of segment sales, compared to $19 million, or 10.5 percent of segment sales, in the third quarter a year ago. Segment earnings continue to benefit from the impact of higher sales volume.

Nonsegment
Nonsegment expenses totaled $27 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $31 million for the same period of the prior year. Adjusted nonsegment expenses1 for the third quarter of 2019 were $20 million, compared to adjusted nonsegment expenses of $12 million for the same quarter last year.

Total debt was $1.19 billion at June 30, 2019, compared to $1.16 billion at March 31, 2019.

During the first nine months of 2019, $139 million was returned to stockholders in the form of dividends and repurchased shares.

Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook

Total net sales for fiscal 2019 are now expected to be approximately $2.90 billion, with Aerospace sales up approximately 19 percent and Industrial sales up approximately 35 percent, both as compared to the prior year.

Aerospace segment earnings as a percent of segment sales are still expected to be approximately 20 percent. Adjusted Industrial segment earnings as a percent of segment sales are expected to be slightly below 14 percent.

1Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures: Adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted Industrial segment earnings, adjusted EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) and adjusted EBITDA (earnings, before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), tax rate, and adjusted nonsegment expenses exclude, as applicable, (i) restructuring charges, (ii) move costs associated with the relocation of our Duarte, California operations to the Company’s newly renovated Drake Campus in Fort Collins, Colorado (“Duarte move related costs”), (iii) purchase accounting impacts related to the revaluation of the Woodward L’Orange inventory recognized in cost goods sold and the amortization of the Woodward L’Orange backlog intangible, (iv) L'Orange acquisition transaction and integration costs (v) cost associated with a Forward Option related to the L’Orange acquisition, (vi) warranty and indemnity insurance costs associated with the acquisition of L’Orange, (vii) German real estate transfer tax costs associated with the acquisition of L’Orange, and (viii) the transition impacts of the change in U.S. federal tax legislation in December 2017.  Woodward believes that these items are short-term costs or are otherwise not related to the ongoing operations of the business and therefore, excludes them to illustrate more clearly how the underlying business of Woodward is performing. Organic sales and organic Industrial segment net sales exclude sales attributable to Woodward L’Orange, which was acquired on June 1, 2018.

EBIT, EBITDA, free cash flow, organic net sales, organic Industrial net sales, adjusted net earnings, adjusted Industrial segment net earnings, adjusted net earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, and adjusted nonsegment expenses are financial measures not prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). Management uses EBIT to evaluate Woodward’s operating performance without the impacts of financing and tax related considerations. Management uses EBITDA in evaluating Woodward’s operating performance, making business decisions, including developing budgets, managing expenditures, forecasting future periods, and evaluating capital structure impacts of various strategic scenarios. Management uses free cash flow, which is derived from net cash provided by or used in operating activities less payments for property, plant, and equipment, in reviewing the financial performance of Woodward’s various business segments and evaluating cash generation levels. Securities analysts, investors, and others frequently use EBIT, EBITDA and free cash flow in their evaluation of companies, particularly those with significant property, plant, and equipment, and intangible assets that are subject to amortization. The use of any of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because EBIT and EBITDA exclude certain financial information compared with net earnings, the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, users of this financial information should consider the information that is excluded. Free cash flow does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs. Management’s calculations of EBIT, EBITDA, and free cash flow may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. We refer to certain financial measures excluding the impact of currency exchange rate fluctuations as “constant currency basis”. We calculate financial measures on a constant currency basis by removing any realized or unrealized currency gains or losses on working capital from the particular measure in the current period and then converting our current period local currency financial results using the foreign currency exchange rates in effect during the prior year period. The financial measures, when calculated on a constant currency basis, are intended to supplement our reported operating results and, when considered in conjunction with the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, facilitate a better understanding of changes in the metrics from period to period and the core operations of the Company.
