Q2 Results Reflect Solid Defense Market Sales Growth and Benefits of Cost Containment Actions

Expect Strong FY’20 Free Cash Flow Generation

Maintain Healthy Balance Sheet with Ample Liquidity

DAVIDSON, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) reports financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights:

  • Reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.74, with Adjusted diluted EPS of $1.31;
  • Reported free cash flow (FCF) of $130 million, up 71% compared to the prior year period, with Adjusted FCF of $136 million, up 70%, and Adjusted FCF conversion of 247%;
  • Net sales of $550 million, down 14%, with defense market sales up 5%;
  • New orders of $620 million, up 3%, led by strong growth in naval defense;
  • Reported operating income of $55 million, down 48%, with Reported operating margin of 10.1%, down 640 basis points; and
  • Adjusted operating income of $79 million, down 27%, with Adjusted operating margin of 14.3%, down 250 basis points.

“Our second quarter performance reflects our team’s ability to take swift action and effectively manage the business in this exceptionally challenging environment,” said David C. Adams, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “Across Curtiss-Wright, we continue to take the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our employees and ensure the continuity of our operations. Our results reflect solid sales growth in our defense markets, the benefits of our ongoing cost containment initiatives and strong free cash flow which produced a robust free cash flow conversion of 247% in the quarter.

“Looking ahead to the remainder of 2020, we expect continued overall growth in our defense markets, which remain strong, along with sequential improvement in our commercial markets, as we slowly rebound from lower second quarter demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are increasing and accelerating difficult, but essential, restructuring actions aimed at mitigating the challenging conditions within our commercial end markets. As a result, we now anticipate $35 million in restructuring costs in 2020 to generate $40 million in annualized savings, which is expected to benefit our performance for the remainder of 2020 and in 2021.

“Our balanced portfolio, along with the anticipated cost savings generated by these actions, provides the necessary confidence to reinitiate our full-year 2020 guidance. Further, it supports our ability to generate strong Adjusted free cash flow of $350 to $380 million. Overall, we remain focused on executing on our long-term strategy to deliver significant value for our shareholders.”

Full-Year 2020 Adjusted Guidance (compared to Full-Year 2019 Adjusted Actuals):

  • Overall sales expected to be down 4% to 6%; Defense market growth remains in-line with prior guidance at 8% to 10%;
  • Adjusted operating income expected to be down 5% to 8%;
  • Adjusted operating margin expected to be down 30 to 50 basis points to new range of 16.0% to 16.2%, as cost containment actions expected to partially offset impact of decline in sales volume;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS range of $6.60 to $6.85, with approximately 40% of full-year 2020 EPS expected to be recognized in the fourth quarter;
  • Adjusted FCF guidance range of $350 to $380 million, with Adjusted FCF conversion increasing to approximately 130%; and
  • The Company now anticipates $35 million in restructuring costs in 2020 to generate $40 million in annualized savings, which is expected to benefit our performance for the remainder of 2020 and in 2021; this exceeds the original expectations of $28 million in restructuring costs in 2020 to generate $20 million in annualized savings which were to begin in 2021.

Financing of $300 Million in Senior Notes:

  • During the second quarter, the Company priced a private placement debt offering of $300 million for senior notes, consisting of $150 million 3.10% notes due 2030 and $150 million 3.20% notes due 2032; The offering is expected to close on August 13, 2020; and
  • Curtiss-Wright maintains a flexible and conservative capital structure, including significant dry powder for acquisitions and other corporate needs.

Adjusted results exclude $15 million in restructuring costs, a non-cash impairment of capitalized development costs related to a commercial aerospace program, one-time inventory step-up, backlog amortization and transaction costs for current and prior year acquisitions, and one-time transition and IT security costs associated with the relocation of our DRG business.

  • Sales of $550 million, down $89 million, or 14%, compared to the prior year (down 17% organic, up 3% acquisitions);
  • Sales to the defense markets increased 5%, led by solid growth in aerospace and naval defense, while sales to the commercial markets decreased 29%, due to reduced demand in the general industrial, commercial aerospace and power generation markets resulting from the widespread impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the accompanying tables for an overall breakdown of sales by end market;
  • Adjusted operating income was $79 million, down 27%, while Adjusted operating margin decreased 250 basis points to 14.3%, reflecting unfavorable overhead absorption on lower organic revenues in the Commercial/Industrial and Power segments, partially offset by the benefits of our company-wide cost containment actions; and
  • Non-segment expenses of $8 million decreased by $2 million, or 21% compared to the prior year, primarily due to lower corporate spending.

  • Reported net earnings of $31 million, down $49 million, or 61% from the prior year, reflecting lower segment operating income, a non-cash currency translation loss related to the liquidation of a foreign legal entity and a higher effective tax rate;
  • Reported diluted EPS of $0.74, down 60% from the prior year, reflecting lower net earnings, partially offset by a lower share count;
  • Adjusted net earnings of $55 million, down 33%;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS of $1.31, down 31%; and
  • Effective tax rate of 27.4%, an increase from 22.7% in the prior year quarter, primarily due to the aforementioned foreign currency translation loss.

Adjusted free cash flow excludes a capital investment related to the new, state-of-the-art naval facility principally for DRG which impacted both periods, and the cash impact from restructuring in the current period.

  • Reported free cash flow was $130 million, an increase of $54 million compared to the prior year, principally driven by higher collections, timing of tax payments and a reduction in capital expenditures, partially offset by lower cash earnings;
  • Capital expenditures decreased $6 million to $11 million compared to the prior year, primarily due to lower capital investments within the Power segment; and
  • Adjusted free cash flow, which excludes restructuring in the current period, as well as the DRG facility investment in the current and prior year periods, improved by $56 million, or 70%, to $136 million.

New Orders and Backlog

  • New orders of $620 million increased 3% compared with the prior year period, led by strong organic growth in naval defense for aircraft carrier and submarine platforms, which more than offset reduced demand in the commercial markets; and
  • Backlog of $2.2 billion increased 1% from December 31, 2019.

Share Repurchase and Dividends

  • During the second quarter, the Company repurchased 132,443 shares of its common stock for approximately $13 million;
  • Year-to-date, the Company repurchased 1.2 million shares for approximately $125 million, which included a $100 million opportunistic share repurchase program executed in March; and

  • General industrial market sales declines reflect reduced demand for industrial vehicle, valve and controls products, as well as surface treatment services;
  • Reported operating income was $14 million, with Reported operating margin of 6.7%; and
  • Adjusted operating income was $22 million, while Adjusted operating margin decreased 720 basis points to 10.3%, reflecting unfavorable absorption on lower revenues across our commercial markets, partially offset by the benefits of our cost containment initiatives.

  • Sales of $170 million, up $11 million, or 7%, compared to the prior year (down 2% organic, up 9% acquisition);
  • Higher aerospace defense market revenues principally reflect increased sales of embedded computing equipment on various Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) programs, including fighter jets and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms;
  • Strong naval defense market revenue growth was due to higher sales of valves on the Virginia class submarine program as well as the contribution from the 901D acquisition;
  • Reduced ground defense market revenues reflect lower sales on domestic and international tank platforms;
  • Lower commercial aerospace market revenues reflect lower sales of flight test instrumentation equipment;
  • Reported operating income was $28 million, with Reported operating margin of 16.4%; and
  • Adjusted operating income was $37 million, up 10% from the prior year, while Adjusted operating margin increased 60 basis points to 21.6%, primarily reflecting the contribution from the 901D acquisition and the benefits of our cost containment actions.

  • Sales of $166 million, down $21 million, or 11%, compared to the prior year;
  • Lower naval defense market revenues reflect production timing, as we completed the transition of our DRG business from New York to South Carolina in the second quarter and expect a steady, sequential ramp up to full production in the second half of the year; In addition, lower service center sales were partially offset by increased Columbia class submarine revenues;
  • Reduced power generation market sales principally reflect lower domestic and international aftermarket revenues; and
  • Reported operating income was $21 million, with Reported operating margin of 12.8%; and
  • Adjusted operating income was $28 million, down 16%, while Adjusted operating margin decreased 100 basis points to 16.7%, reflecting unfavorable overhead absorption on lower naval defense and power generation revenues, partially offset by the benefits of our cost containment actions.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information (Unaudited)

The Corporation supplements its financial information determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial information. Curtiss-Wright believes that these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional insight into the Company’s ongoing business performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures, and other companies may define such measures differently. Curtiss-Wright encourages investors to review its financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

The Company’s presentation of its financials and guidance includes an Adjusted (non-GAAP) view that excludes significant restructuring costs in 2020 associated with its operations, including one-time actions taken in response to COVID-19, a non-cash impairment of capitalized development costs related to a commercial aerospace program, first year purchase accounting costs associated with its acquisitions, as well as one-time transition and IT security costs, and capital investments, specifically associated with the relocation of the DRG business in the Power segment. Transition costs include relocation of employees and equipment as well as overlapping facility and labor costs associated with the relocation. We believe this Adjusted view will provide improved transparency to the investment community in order to better measure Curtiss-Wright’s ongoing operating and financial performance and better comparisons of our key financial metrics to our peers. Reconciliations of “Reported” GAAP amounts to “Adjusted” non-GAAP amounts are furnished within this release.

The following definitions are provided:

Adjusted Operating Income, Operating Margin, Net Earnings and Diluted EPS

These Adjusted financials are defined as Reported Operating Income, Operating Margin, Net Earnings and Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS) under GAAP excluding: (i) the impact of first year purchase accounting costs associated with acquisitions for current and prior year periods, specifically one-time inventory step-up, backlog amortization and transaction costs; (ii) one-time transition and IT security costs associated with the relocation of a business in the current year period; (iii) the non-cash impairment of capitalized development costs related to a commercial aerospace program; and (iv) significant restructuring costs in 2020 associated with its operations.

Organic Sales and Organic Operating Income

The Corporation discloses organic sales and organic operating income because the Corporation believes it provides investors with insight as to the Company’s ongoing business performance. Organic sales and organic operating income are defined as sales and operating income excluding the impact of restructuring costs, foreign currency fluctuations and contributions from acquisitions made during the last twelve months.

Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow Conversion

The Corporation discloses free cash flow because it measures cash flow available for investing and financing activities. Free cash flow represents cash available to repay outstanding debt, invest in the business, acquire businesses, return capital to shareholders and make other strategic investments. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Adjusted free cash flow excludes: (i) a capital investment in the Power segment related to the new, state-of-the-art naval facility principally for DRG; (ii) a voluntary contribution to the Company’s corporate defined benefit pension plan made in the first quarter of 2020; and (iii) the cash impact from restructuring in 2020. The Corporation discloses free cash flow conversion because it measures the proportion of net earnings converted into free cash flow and is defined as free cash flow divided by net earnings from continuing operations. Adjusted free cash flow conversion is defined as Adjusted free cash flow divided by Adjusted net earnings.
