NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) reported second quarter 2015 revenues of $1.75 billion, up 1.5 percent compared to the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share was $3.20, compared to diluted earnings per share of $2.04 in the same period of 2014. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $1.99, compared to $1.75 in the same period of 2014.

Segment operating income for the second quarter was $243 million, compared to $163 million in the same period last year. Total operating income for the quarter was $269 million, compared to $181 million in the same period last year. The increase in operating income was primarily due to an insurance litigation settlement and favorable FAS/CAS Adjustment, partially offset by a non-cash goodwill impairment charge related to the Other segment.

New contract awards for the quarter were approximately $4.5 billion, bringing total backlog at the end of Q2 2015 to $24.3 billion, of which $13.7 billion was funded.

"Our persistent focus on program execution and risk retirement resulted in solid operating performance during the quarter, and we continue to make progress toward meeting our commitment of achieving 9-plus percent shipbuilding operating margin in 2015," said HII President and CEO Mike Petters.

Q2 2015 Significant Events

Hurricane-related Insurance Litigation Settlement

During the second quarter of 2015, the company settled an insurance litigation matter involving its Ingalls Shipbuilding segment and received $150 million in cash. The settlement decreased Ingalls revenues by $13 million due to overhead credits to the customer and increased Ingalls operating income by $136 million.

Goodwill Impairment Charge

During the second quarter of 2015, the company recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $59 million related to its Other segment. The impairment was due to continued deterioration of the market fundamentals in the oil and gas industry, including further decline in projected oil and gas prices, significant cutbacks in customers' capital spending plans and additional project delays by customers. The company determined that no events occurred and no circumstances changed that would reduce the fair value of the company's remaining reporting segments below their carrying value as of June 30, 2015.

Impact of the Significant Events on Q2 2015 Financial Results

Reported revenues for the second quarter were $1.75 billion, a 1.5 percent increase over the same period in 2014. Adjusting for the $13 million unfavorable impact of the insurance litigation settlement, second quarter revenues were $1.76 billion, a 2.3 percent increase over the same period last year.

Segment operating income in the quarter was $243 million and segment operating margin was 13.9 percent. Adjusting for the $136 million favorable impact of the insurance litigation settlement and the unfavorable impact of the $59 million goodwill impairment charge, segment operating income in the quarter was $166 million and segment operating margin was 9.4 percent.

Total operating income in the quarter was $269 million and total operating margin was 15.4 percent. Adjusting for the $136 million favorable impact of the insurance litigation settlement and the unfavorable impact of the $59 million goodwill impairment charge, total operating income in the quarter was $192 million and total operating margin was 10.9 percent.

Reported diluted earnings per share in the quarter was $3.20, compared to $2.04 in the same period last year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the quarter was $1.99, which excludes the after-tax impacts of the insurance litigation settlement of $1.80 per share, the goodwill impairment charge of $0.96 per share and the FAS/CAS adjustment of $0.37 per share. This compares to adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter 2014 of $1.75, which excludes the after-tax FAS/CAS adjustment of $0.29 per share.

1 Non-GAAP metrics that exclude the impact of insurance litigation settlement in 2015. See Exhibit B for reconciliation.

Ingalls revenues for the second quarter decreased $26 million, or 4.5 percent, from the same period in 2014, due to lower revenues in amphibious assault ships and the National Security Cutter (NSC) program and a $13 million decline that resulted from the insurance litigation settlement, which was partially offset by higher revenues in surface combatants. Adjusting for the insurance litigation settlement, Ingalls revenues of $559 million decreased $13 million or 2.3 percent from the same period last year. Lower amphibious assault ships revenues were due to lower volumes on the LPD program, partially offset by higher volume on LHA-7 Tripoli. Lower revenues on the NSC program were due to lower volume on NSC-4 USCGC Hamilton, partially offset by higher volumes on NSC-8 Midgett and NSC-7 Kimball. Higher surface combatants revenues were due to increased volumes on DDG-121 (unnamed), DDG-119 Delbert D. Black and DDG-117 Paul Ignatius, partially offset by lower volumes on delivered ships in the DDG-1000 Zumwalt-class destroyer program.

Ingalls operating income for the quarter was $198 million, an increase of $139 million over the same period in 2014, and operating margin was 36.3 percent for the quarter, which included a $136 million favorable impact from the insurance litigation settlement. Adjusting for the insurance litigation settlement, operating income was $62 million, an increase of $3 million over Q2 2014, and operating margin was 11.1 percent, compared to 10.3 percent in Q2 2014. These increases were primarily due to risk retirement on DDG-113 John Finn, NSC-5 James and NSC-6 Munro, partially offset by lower revenues.

Key Ingalls highlights for the quarter:

  • Christened the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer John Finn (DDG 113)
  • Delivered NSC-5 James to the U.S. Coast Guard
  • Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed a $20 million bond bill that will help fund capital expenditure investments, including a new dry dock and covered work facilities.

Operating margin % 9.3% 9.2% 14 bps

Newport News revenues for the quarter increased $37 million, or 3.3 percent, from the same period in 2014, primarily due to higher revenues in submarines and fleet support services, partially offset by lower revenues in aircraft carriers. Higher submarines revenues, related to the SSN-774 Virginia-class submarine (VCS) program, were due to increased volumes on Block IV boats, partially offset by lower volumes on Block III boats. Higher fleet support services revenues were primarily due to increased volumes associated with aircraft carrier support services. Lower aircraft carriers revenues were due to lower volumes on the execution contract for the CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) and on the CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford construction contract, partially offset by increased volume for the CVN-79 John F. Kennedy construction preparation contract.

Newport News operating income for the quarter was $109 million, a $5 million increase over the same period last year. Operating margin was 9.3 percent for the quarter, compared to 9.2 percent in Q2 2014. These increases were primarily due to performance improvement and higher risk retirement on the VCS program, partially offset by lower performance on CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford and lower volumes on aircraft carrier RCOH programs.

Key Newport News highlights for the quarter:

  • Delivered Virginia-class submarine SSN-785 John Warner to the U.S Navy
  • Hosted keel-laying ceremony for Virginia-class submarine SSN-789 Indiana
  • Awarded a $3.35 billion detail design and construction contract for the construction of CVN-79 John F. Kennedy
  • SN3 and its partner, Wastren Advantage Inc., received a two-year, $65 million contract extension to work at the Department of Energy Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility in Hanford, Washington.

Exhibit B: Reconciliations

We make reference to "segment operating income," "segment operating margin," "adjusted sales and service revenues," "adjusted segment operating income," "adjusted segment operating margin," "adjusted total operating income," "adjusted operating margin," "adjusted net earnings," and "adjusted diluted earnings per share."

Segment operating income is defined as total operating income before the FAS/CAS Adjustment and deferred state income taxes.

Segment operating margin is defined as segment operating income as a percentage of total sales and service revenues.

Adjusted sales and service revenues is defined as total sales and service revenues adjusted for the impact of the insurance litigation settlement in the second quarter of 2015.

Adjusted segment operating income is defined as segment operating income adjusted for the impacts of the insurance litigation settlement and the non-cash goodwill impairment charge in the second quarter of 2015.

Adjusted segment operating margin is defined as adjusted segment operating income as a percentage of adjusted segment sales and service revenues.

Adjusted total operating income is defined as total operating income adjusted for the impacts of the insurance litigation settlement and the non-cash goodwill impairment charge in the second quarter of 2015.

Adjusted operating margin is defined as adjusted total operating income as a percentage of adjusted sales and service revenues.

Adjusted net earnings is defined as net earnings adjusted for the after-tax impacts of the insurance litigation settlement and the non-cash goodwill impairment charge in the second quarter of 2015 and the FAS/CAS Adjustment.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share is defined as adjusted net earnings divided by the weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding.

We internally manage our operations by reference to "segment operating income" and "segment operating margin," which are not recognized measures under GAAP. When analyzing our operating performance, investors should use segment operating income and segment operating margin in addition to, and not as alternatives for, total operating income and total operating margin or any other performance measure presented in accordance with GAAP. They are metrics that we use to evaluate our core operating performance. We believe that segment operating income and segment operating margin reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We believe these measures are used by investors and are a useful indicator to measure our performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of segment operating income and segment operating margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted sales and service revenues, adjusted total operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted segment operating income, adjusted segment operating margin, adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share are not measures recognized under GAAP. They should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe these metrics are useful to investors because they normalize our operating performance by excluding non-recurring items or items that do not reflect our core operating performance. They may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
