TransDigm Group Reports Fiscal 2018 Third Quarter Results

CLEVELAND, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE: TDG), a leading global designer, producer and supplier of highly engineered aircraft components, today reported results for the third quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Highlights for the third quarter include:

  • Net sales of $980.7 million, up 9.2% from $897.7 million;
  • Net income from continuing operations of $217.4 million, up 28.0% from $169.8 million;
  • Earnings per share from continuing operations of $3.91, up 26.5% from $3.09;
  • EBITDA As Defined of $487.1 million, up 8.8% from $447.6 million;
  • Adjusted earnings per share of $4.01, up 19.0% from $3.37; and
  • Revisions to fiscal 2018 financial guidance.

Net sales for the quarter rose 9.2%, or $83.0 million, to $980.7 million from $897.7 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 4.4%.  

Net income from continuing operations for the quarter rose 28.0% to $217.4 million, or $3.91 per share, compared to $169.8 million, or $3.09 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase in net income primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above, lower effective tax rate and improvements to our operating margin resulting from the the strength of our proprietary products and continued productivity efforts. This growth in net income was partially offset by higher interest expense.

Adjusted net income for the quarter rose 20.8% to $223.2 million, or $4.01 per share, from $184.7 million, or $3.37 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago.  Adjusted earnings per share in the current fiscal year includes $0.42 of favorable impact from the enactment of tax reform. Excluding this favorable tax impact, current earnings per share of $3.59 increased 6.5% over the prior year.

EBITDA for the quarter increased 10.1% to $467.0 million from $424.4 million for the comparable quarter a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 8.8% to $487.1 million compared with $447.6 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the quarter was 49.7%.

“We are pleased with our operating results for both the fiscal third quarter and year-to-date periods,” stated Kevin Stein, TransDigm Group’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Third quarter revenue in each of our major markets of commercial OEM, commercial aftermarket and defense grew sequentially and over the prior year. Ongoing overall trends supporting these end markets continue to be positive. Our smaller sub-markets of business jets and helicopters reported strong revenue growth in the current quarter in both commercial OEM and aftermarket, an encouraging sign after prolonged weakness. Despite the dilutive impact of recent acquisitions, our EBITDA as Defined margin of 49.7% remained strong, highlighting our continued focus on our value based operating strategy.”

During the quarter, TransDigm successfully raised $1.2 billion of incremental debt including $500 million aggregate principal amount of 6.875% senior subordinated notes due 2026, and $700 million in additional tranche E term loans.  The proceeds were used to replenish the cash used to fund the purchase price for its acquisitions of the Kirkhill elastomers business and Extant Components Group Holdings, Inc. This cash and the remainder of the net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including potential future acquisitions, dividends or repurchases under its stock repurchase program. TransDigm also repriced $5.1 billion of existing tranche E and F term loans to opportunistically lower the associated interest rates.

Subsequent to the quarter, on July 13, 2018, TransDigm completed the acquisition of Skandia Inc. from Graycliff Partners LP for approximately $84 million, including the assumption of debt. Skandia is a leading provider of highly engineered foam, foam fabrication, flammability testing and acoustic solutions for the business jet market.

Year-to-Date Results

Net sales for the thirty-nine week period ended June 30, 2018 rose 7.0% to $2,761.7 million from $2,580.4 million in the comparable period last year.  Organic net sales growth was 4.7%.

Net income from continuing operations for the thirty-nine week period ended June 30, 2018 increased 64.5% to $731.2 million, or $12.14 per share, compared with $444.4 million, or $6.25 per share, in the comparable period last year. The current thirty-nine week period was positively impacted by a lower effective tax rate due to tax reform.  The current effective tax rate was a benefit of 3.9% compared to a provision of 24.7% for the comparable period of fiscal 2017. The balance of the increase in net income primarily reflects growth in net sales described above, lower refinancing costs and lower acquisition-related costs, as well as 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 level of weighted average outstanding borrowings to $12.5 billion from $11.3 billion outstanding in the comparable period last year.

Earnings per share were reduced in both 2018 and 2017 by $1.01 per share and $1.72 per share, respectively, representing dividend equivalent payments made during each year.

Net loss from discontinued operations for the thirty-nine week period ended June 30, 2018 was $2.9 million, or $0.05 loss per share, compared to $1.0 million, or $0.02 loss per share in the comparable period a year ago.

Adjusted net income for the thirty-nine week period ended June 30, 2018 rose 49.9% to $747.1 million, or $13.44 per share, from $498.6 million, or $8.94 per share, in the comparable period a year ago.  Adjusted earnings per share in the current fiscal year includes $3.83 of favorable impact from the enactment of tax reform. Excluding this favorable tax impact, current earnings per share of $9.61 increased 7.5% over the prior year.

EBITDA for the thirty-nine week period ended June 30, 2018 increased 12.6% to $1,289.0 million from $1,145.0 million for the comparable period a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 8.1% to $1,351.8 million compared with $1,250.5 million in the comparable period a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the period was 48.9%.

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.

Fiscal 2018 Outlook

Mr. Stein continued, “We are raising the low-end and mid-point of our full year revenue and EBITDA As Defined guidance range to reflect our operating performance to date and expectations for the fiscal fourth quarter. At the mid-point, we are increasing our revenue guidance by $20 million, EBITDA as Defined guidance by $15 million, and are decreasing our adjusted earnings per share guidance by $0.06 per share. Our revised adjusted earnings per share guidance decrease primarily reflects the impact of additional interest expense from our recent financing activities.”

Assuming no additional acquisitions, TransDigm now expects fiscal 2018 financial guidance to be as follows:

  • Net sales are anticipated to be in the range of $3,780 million to $3,820 million compared with $3,504 million in fiscal 2017;
  • Net income from continuing operations is anticipated to be in the range of $928 million to $946 million compared with $629 million in fiscal 2017;
  • Earnings per share from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $15.68 to $16.00 per share based upon weighted average shares outstanding of 55.6 compared with $8.45 per share in fiscal 2017;
  • EBITDA As Defined is anticipated to be in the range of $1,860 million to $1,880 million compared with $1,711 million in fiscal 2017; and
  • Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $17.45 to $17.77 per share compared with $12.38 per share in fiscal 2017.

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. Additionally, please see the attached table 7 for comparison of the current fiscal year 2018 guidance versus the previously issued fiscal year 2018 guidance.

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.

(1) During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company committed to disposing of Schroth in connection with the settlement of a Department of Justice investigation into the competitive effects of the acquisition. Therefore, Schroth was classified as held-for-sale beginning September 30, 2017. On January 26, 2018, the Company completed the sale of Schroth in a management buyout to a private equity fund and certain members of Schroth management for approximately $61.4 million, which includes a working capital adjustment of $0.3 million that was settled in July 2018.

(2) Represents accounting adjustments to inventory associated with acquisitions of businesses and product lines that were charged to cost of sales when the inventory was sold; costs incurred to integrate acquired businesses and product lines into TD Group’s operations, facility relocation costs and other acquisition-related costs; transaction-related costs comprising deal fees; legal, financial and tax due diligence expenses; and valuation costs that are required to be expensed as incurred.

(3) Represents the compensation expense recognized by TD Group under our stock incentive plans.

(4) Represents costs expensed related to debt financing activities, including new issuances, extinguishments, refinancings and amendments to existing agreements.

(5) Primarily represents foreign currency transaction gain or loss, payroll withholding taxes related to dividend equivalent payments and stock option exercises and gain or loss on sale of fixed assets.  Prior to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, foreign currency transaction gain or loss other than related to intercompany loans was not included in the adjustments to EBITDA, as the foreign currency transaction gain or loss was immaterial during those periods.  Therefore, the prior periods presented herein were adjusted to conform to the current year presentation.

(6) The EBITDA As Defined margin represents the amount of EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of sales.

(2) Represents the compensation expense recognized by TD Group under our stock incentive plans.

(3) Represents accounting adjustments to inventory associated with acquisitions of businesses and product lines that were charged to cost of sales when the inventory was sold; costs incurred to integrate acquired businesses and product lines into TD Group’s operations, facility relocation costs and other acquisition-related costs; transaction-related costs comprising deal fees; legal, financial and tax due diligence expenses and valuation costs that are required to be expensed as incurred.

(5) Primarily represents foreign currency transaction gain or loss, payroll withholding taxes related to dividend equivalent payments and stock option exercises and gain or loss on sale of fixed assets.  Prior to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, foreign currency transaction gain or loss other than related to intercompany loans was not included in the adjustments to EBITDA, as the foreign currency transaction gain or loss was immaterial during those periods.  Therefore, the prior periods presented herein were adjusted to conform to the current year presentation.

(6) During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company committed to disposing of Schroth in connection with the settlement of a Department of Justice investigation into the competitive effects of the acquisition. Therefore, Schroth was classified as held-for-sale beginning September 30, 2017. On January 26, 2018, the Company completed the sale of Schroth in a management buyout to a private equity fund and certain members of Schroth management for approximately $61.4 million, which includes a working capital adjustment of $0.3 million that was settled in July 2018.
