TransDigm Group Reports Fiscal 2017 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

CLEVELAND, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE: TDG), a leading global designer, producer and supplier of highly engineered aircraft components, today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2017.

Highlights for the fourth quarter and fiscal year include:

  • Fourth quarter net sales of $923.9 million, up 5.6% from $875.2 million;
  • Fourth quarter net income from continuing operations of $184.1 million, up 19.1% from $154.7 million;
  • Fourth quarter earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.21, down 20.2% from $2.77;
  • Fourth quarter EBITDA As Defined of $460.1 million, up 8.7% from $423.3 million;
  • Fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of $3.48, up 5.8% from $3.29;
  • Fiscal 2017 net sales of $3,504.3 million, up 10.5% from $3,171.4 million;
  • Fiscal 2017 net income from continuing operations of $628.5 million, up 7.2% from $586.4 million;
  • Fiscal 2017 earnings per share from continuing operations of $8.45, down 18.7% from $10.39;
  • Fiscal 2017 EBITDA As Defined $1,710.6 million, up 14.4% from $1,495.2 million; and
  • Fiscal 2017 adjusted earnings per share of $12.38, up 7.7% from $11.49.

During the fourth quarter of 2017, TransDigm began the process of disposing of our Schroth operations in connection with an agreement with the Department of Justice. Accordingly, the Schroth results are presented as discontinued operations, and as such, $10.1 million of net sales are excluded from continuing operations for the quarter and $24.6 million of net sales are excluded for the full fiscal year. Schroth was previously acquired in February 2017.

Net sales for the quarter, which excludes $10.1 million of net sales from discontinued operations, rose 5.6%, or $48.7 million, to $923.9 million from $875.2 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic net sales growth was 2.7%.

Net income from continuing operations for the quarter rose 19.1% to $184.1 million, or $2.21 per share, compared to $154.7 million, or $2.77 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. Earnings per share were reduced in the quarter by $1.15 per share representing dividend equivalent payments made during the quarter. The increase in net income primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above, lower acquisition related costs and improvements to our operating margin resulting from the strength of our proprietary products and continued productivity efforts. This growth in net income was partially offset by higher interest expense.

Net loss from discontinued operations in the quarter was $30.7 million, or $0.56 loss per share.

Adjusted net income for the quarter rose 3.8% to $190.7 million, or $3.48 per share, from $183.6 million, or $3.29 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago.

EBITDA for the quarter, which excludes $0.9 million from discontinued operations, increased 13.1% to $436.0 million from $385.4 million for the comparable quarter a year ago. EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 8.7% to $460.1 million compared with $423.3 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the quarter was 49.8%.

As previously reported, during the quarter TransDigm issued a new $1.8 billion first lien term loan and also drew $100 million on its accounts receivable securitization facility. The proceeds were used, together with cash on hand, to repay $1.2 billion of its existing tranche C term loans and to fund a $22 per share special dividend and related payments.

Year-to-Date Results

Fiscal 2017 net sales, which excludes $24.6 million from discontinued operations, rose 10.5% to $3,504.3 million from $3,171.4 million in the comparable period last year. Organic net sales growth was 2.4%.

Fiscal 2017 net income from continuing operations increased 7.2% to $628.5 million, or $8.45 per share, compared with $586.4 million, or $10.39 per share, in the comparable period last year. The increase in net income primarily reflects growth in net sales described above, lower acquisition-related costs and improvements to our operating margin resulting from the strength of our proprietary products and continued productivity efforts. This growth in net income was partially offset by higher interest expense due to an increase in the weighted average level of outstanding borrowings to $11.0 billion from $8.8 billion outstanding in the comparable period last year, higher refinancing costs and higher effective tax rate.

Net loss from discontinued operations in fiscal 2017 was $31.7 million, or $0.57 per share.

Earnings per share were reduced in both 2017 and 2016 by $2.87 per share and $0.05 per share, respectively, representing dividend equivalent payments made during each fiscal year.

Fiscal 2017 adjusted net income rose 6.5% to $687.5 million, or $12.38 per share, from $645.3 million, or $11.49 per share, in the comparable period a year ago.

Fiscal 2017 EBITDA , which excludes $3.0 million from discontinued operations, increased 15.1% to $1,581.0 million from $1,373.6 million for the comparable period a year ago. EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 14.4% to $1,710.6 million compared with $1,495.2 million in the comparable period a year ago. EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the period was 48.8%.

"We are pleased with our overall operating results for both the quarter and full fiscal year despite some modest puts and takes," stated W. Nicholas Howley, TransDigm Group's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "For the full year, our commercial transport aftermarket revenues were up in the mid-single-digit percentage range despite weakness in our interior businesses. This was partially offset by continuing weakness in our business jet and helicopter aftermarket revenues. Commercial oem revenues were slightly softer, however our defense revenues grew more than originally anticipated. Our full fiscal year EBITDA As Defined margin of 49% was strong and up almost two margin points over the prior year, reflecting the power of our consistent and strict operating focus."

He continued, "In Fiscal 2017, as part of our regular capital allocation focus, we returned approximately $3 billion to our shareholders through a combination of special dividends and share repurchases. We ended the year with approximately $650 million in cash and have over $1 billion of liquidity available to us with our undrawn revolver and capacity under our credit agreement. This strong liquidity position grows throughout the year and provides us with adequate financial flexibility to support continued growth and pursue acquisition opportunities."

Please see the attached tables for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, and adjusted net income; a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to EBITDA and EBITDA As Defined, and a reconciliation of earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share for the periods discussed in this press release.

During Fiscal 2017, TransDigm repurchased 1,723,624 shares of its common stock with a weighted average per share price of $226 at an aggregate cost of approximately $390 million.

Fiscal 2018 Outlook

Assuming no acquisitions and based upon current market conditions, TransDigm expects fiscal 2018 financial guidance to be as follows:

  • Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $3,645 million to $3,725 million compared with $3,504 million in fiscal 2017;
  • Net income from continuing operations is anticipated to be in the range of $702 million to $738 million compared with $597 million in fiscal 2017;
  • Earnings per share from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $11.61 to $12.25 per share based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 55.6 compared with $7.88 per share in fiscal 2017;
  • EBITDA As Defined is anticipated to be in the range of $1,805 million to $1,855 million compared with $1,711 million in fiscal 2017; and
  • Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $12.78 to $13.42 per share compared with $12.38 per share in fiscal 2017.

Mr. Howley stated, "Our fiscal 2018 guidance assumes that our commercial aftermarket and OEM revenues will grow in mid-single-digit percentage range, and defense revenues up in the low to mid-single-digit percentage range."

Please see the attached table 6 for a reconciliation of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined to net income and reported earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share guidance mid-point estimated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Information

EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, EBITDA As Defined Margin, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release as supplemental disclosures to net income and reported results. TransDigm Group defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and defines EBITDA As Defined as EBITDA plus certain non-operating items, refinancing costs, acquisition-related costs, transaction-related costs and non-cash charges incurred in connection with certain employee benefit plans. TransDigm Group defines adjusted net income as net income plus purchase accounting backlog amortization expense, effects from the sale on businesses, refinancing costs, acquisition-related costs, transaction-related costs and non-cash charges incurred in connection with certain employee benefit plans. EBITDA As Defined Margin represents EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales. TransDigm Group defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by the total shares for basic and diluted earnings per share. For more information regarding the computation of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined and adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share, please see the attached financial tables.

TransDigm Group presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they are useful indicators of its operating performance. TransDigm Group believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to measure operating performance among companies with different capital structures, effective tax rates and tax attributes, capitalized asset values and employee compensation structures, all of which can vary substantially from company to company. In addition, analysts, rating agencies and others use EBITDA to evaluate a company's ability to incur and service debt. EBITDA As Defined is used to measure TransDigm Inc.'s compliance with the financial covenant contained in its credit facility. TransDigm Group's management also uses EBITDA As Defined to review and assess its operating performance, to prepare its annual budget and financial projections and to review and evaluate its management team in connection with employee incentive programs. Moreover, TransDigm Group's management uses EBITDA As Defined to evaluate acquisitions and as a liquidity measure. In addition, TransDigm Group's management uses adjusted net income as a measure of comparable operating performance between time periods and among companies as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance.

None of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, EBITDA As Defined Margin, adjusted net income or adjusted earnings per share is a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and such financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, earnings per share, cash flows from operating activities or other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, TransDigm Group's calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Although we use EBITDA and EBITDA As Defined as measures to assess the performance of our business and for the other purposes set forth above, the use of these non-GAAP financial measures as analytical tools has limitations, and you should not consider any of them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results of operations as reported in accordance with GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • neither EBITDA nor EBITDA As Defined reflects the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest payments, on our indebtedness;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and neither EBITDA nor EBITDA As Defined reflects any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • the omission of the substantial amortization expense associated with our intangible assets further limits the usefulness of EBITDA and EBITDA As Defined;
  • neither EBITDA nor EBITDA As Defined includes the payment of taxes, which is a necessary element of our operations; and
  • EBITDA As Defined excludes the cash expense we have incurred to integrate acquired businesses into our operations, which is a necessary element of certain of our acquisitions.
