TransDigm Group Reports Fiscal 2018 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

TransDigm Group Reports Fiscal 2018 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

PR Newswire

CLEVELAND, Nov. 6, 2018

CLEVELAND, Nov. 6, 2018 /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, 2018.

Highlights for the fourth quarter and fiscal year include:

Net sales for the quarter rose 13.6%, or $125.5 million, to $1,049.4 million from $923.9 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 7.7%.       

Net income from continuing operations for the quarter rose 25.1% to $230.3 million, or $4.14 per share, compared to $184.1 million, or $2.21 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase in net income primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above and lower effective tax rate due to the enactment of U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (tax reform).

Earnings per share were reduced in the prior period by $1.15 per share, representing dividend equivalent payments made during the quarter. No dividend equivalent payments were made during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

Adjusted net income for the quarter rose 29.6% to $247.0 million, or $4.44 per share, from $190.7 million, or $3.48 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago.

EBITDA for the quarter increased 12.2% to $489.4 million from $436.0 million for the comparable quarter a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 14.1% to $524.8 million compared with $460.1 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the quarter was 50.0%.

W. Nicholas Howley, TransDigm Group's Executive Chairman, stated, "In fiscal 2018 we were able to allocate approximately $660 million to purchase three aerospace businesses that all met our stringent strategic and value creation requirements. In addition, after our fiscal year end, we announced an agreement to purchase Esterline for around $4.0 billion. When completed, it will be our largest acquisition to date. We plan to finance the acquisition through a combination of existing cash on hand and the incurrence of new term loans. We have obtained commitments for $3.7 billion, close to the full amount of financing required. This pending acquisition does not change our views and priorities on capital allocation and we expect to maintain the financial flexibility to meet any anticipated operating, acquisition or other opportunities that may arise."

"Fiscal 2018 was a good year for TransDigm," stated Kevin Stein, TransDigm Group's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased with our full fiscal year operating results, and they were in-line with our original guidance, excluding the recent acquisitions. Our commercial aftermarket and defense revenues were both stronger than originally anticipated, partially offset by slightly weaker commercial OEM revenues. The slightly weaker commercial OEM was primarily due to softness in wide-body commercial transport aircraft revenue that we believe is timing related. Business jet and helicopter revenues were encouraging and have finally shown signs of more robust growth. Our full fiscal year EBITDA As Defined margin of over 49% remained strong in spite of unfavorable dilution from recent acquisitions."

During 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.

Subsequent to the quarter, on October 9, 2018, TransDigm entered into a definitive agreement under which TransDigm will purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Esterline Technologies Corporation (NYSE: ESL) for $122.50 per share in cash, or a total transaction value of approximately $4.0 billion plus existing debt. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including Esterline stockholder approval and the receipt of required regulatory approvals.  The companies expect to complete the transaction in 2019.

Full Fiscal Year Results

Fiscal 2018 net sales rose 8.8% to $3,811.1 million from $3,504.3 million in the comparable period last year.  Organic net sales growth was 5.5%.

Fiscal 2018 net income from continuing operations increased 53.0% to $961.5 million, or $16.28 per share, compared with $628.5 million, or $8.45 per share, in the comparable period last year. The current period was positively impacted by a lower effective tax rate due to tax reform.  The current effective tax rate was 2.4% compared to 24.9% 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 $12.6 billion from $11.0 billion outstanding in the comparable period last year.

Earnings per share were reduced in both 2018 and 2017 by $1.01 per share and $2.87 per share, respectively, representing dividend equivalent payments made during each year.

Net loss from discontinued operations in fiscal 2018 was $4.5 million, or $0.08 loss per share, compared to $31.7 million, or $0.57 loss per share in the comparable period a year ago.

Fiscal 2018 adjusted net income rose 44.2% to $991.2 million, or $17.83 per share, from $687.5 million, or $12.38 per share, in the comparable period a year ago.  Adjusted earnings per share in the current fiscal year includes $4.48 of favorable impact from the enactment of tax reform. Excluding this favorable tax impact, current earnings per share would be $13.35, an increase of 7.8% over the prior year.

Fiscal 2018 EBITDA increased 12.5% to $1,778.4 million from $1,581.0 million for the comparable period a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 9.7% to $1,876.6 million compared with $1,710.6 million in the comparable period a year ago.  EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the period was 49.2%.

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 2019 Outlook

Mr. Stein stated, "Our fiscal 2019 guidance assumes that our commercial aftermarket and defense revenues will both grow in the mid to high-single-digit percentage range and commercial OEM revenues will grow in the low to mid-single-digit percentage range."

Excluding any impact from the pending acquisition of Esterline, assuming no additional acquisitions, and based on current market conditions, TransDigm expects fiscal 2019 financial guidance to be as follows:

(1) Fiscal 2018 net income includes a one-time provisional benefit of $146.4 million, or $2.63 per share due to the enactment of tax reform. Excluding the one-time provisional tax benefit, fiscal 2018 earnings per share from continuing operations would be $13.65 per share.  The mid-point of fiscal 2019 earnings per share guidance range of $14.90 represents a 9.2% increase over this adjusted number.

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, 2019.

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:
