1  In the second quarter of 2016, the Corporation adopted a new accounting standard issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board for employee share-based payment awards and reported the impacts as though the standard had been adopted on Jan. 1, 2016. Accordingly, the Corporation recognized additional income tax benefits as an increase to net earnings and operating cash flows of $11 million ($0.04 per share) and $115 million ($0.37 per share) in the quarter and six months ended June 26, 2016. The adjustments for the second quarter of 2016 include only the quarterly impacts, whereas the adjustments for the first six months of 2016 include the second quarter impacts and the reclassification of income tax benefits of $104 million originally recognized in additional paid-in capital and cash flows from financing activities in the first quarter of 2016. The new accounting standard did not impact any periods prior to Jan. 1, 2016.

 

 


2016 FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

The following table and other sections of this news release contain forward-looking statements, which are based on the Corporation’s current expectations. Actual results may differ materially from those projected. It is the Corporation’s practice not to incorporate adjustments into its financial outlook for proposed acquisitions, divestitures, ventures and changes in law until such items have been consummated or enacted. Accordingly, the Corporation’s outlook for 2016 reflects a full year of operations of the Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) business as the transaction to separate and merge the IS&GS business with Leidos Holdings, Inc. is expected to close in the third quarter of 2016. The outlook for 2016 will be updated to exclude the IS&GS business when and if the transaction closes. For additional factors that may impact the Corporation’s actual results, refer to the “Forward-Looking Statements” section in this news release.

The Corporation may determine to fund customer programs itself pending government appropriations. If the Corporation incurs costs in excess of funds obligated on a contract, it may be at risk for reimbursement of the excess costs. In 2014 and 2015, the Corporation received customer authorization and initial funding to begin producing F-35 aircraft to be acquired under low-rate initial production (LRIP) 9 and 10 contracts, respectively. The Corporation continues to negotiate these contracts with its customer. Throughout the negotiation process, the Corporation has incurred costs in excess of funds obligated and has provided multiple notifications to its customer that current funding is insufficient to cover the production process.  Despite not yet receiving additional funding, the Corporation continued work in an effort to meet the customer’s desired aircraft delivery dates. As a result, as of June 26, 2016, the Corporation has approximately $900 million of potential cash exposure and $3.0 billion in termination liability exposure related to the F-35 LRIP 9 and 10 contracts. The Corporation is currently negotiating final contract terms with its customer and expects to receive additional funding by the end of 2016.


CASH DEPLOYMENT ACTIVITIES

The Corporation’s cash deployment activities in the second quarter of 2016 consisted of the following:

  • repurchasing 2.1 million shares for $501 million, compared to 4.9 million shares for $937 million in the second quarter of 2015;
  • paying cash dividends of $501 million, compared to $467 million in the second quarter of 2015;
  • repaying $452 million of long-term notes upon scheduled maturity, compared to no repayments in the second quarter of 2015; and
  • making capital expenditures of $235 million, compared to $191 million in the second quarter of 2015.

SEGMENT RESULTS

We operate in five business segments: Aeronautics, IS&GS, Missiles and Fire Control (MFC), Mission Systems and Training (MST) and Space Systems. We organize our business segments based on the nature of the products and services offered. During the fourth quarter of 2015, we realigned certain programs among our business segments. The amounts, discussion and presentation of our business segments for all periods presented in this news release reflect the program realignment. Additionally, the results of our MST business segment include the operations of Sikorsky since its November 6, 2015 acquisition date. Accordingly, the results of Sikorsky operations are included in our business segment results of operations for the quarter ended June 26, 2016 but not for the quarter ended June 28, 2015.

Operating profit of the business segments includes the Corporation’s share of earnings or losses from equity method investees as the operating activities of the equity method investees are closely aligned with the operations of the Corporation’s business segments. United Launch Alliance (ULA), which is part of the Space Systems business segment, is the Corporation’s primary equity method investee. Operating profit of the Corporation’s business segments excludes the FAS/CAS pension adjustment, which represents the difference between total pension expense recorded in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (FAS) and pension costs recoverable on U.S. Government contracts as determined in accordance with U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (CAS); expense for stock-based compensation; the effects of items not considered part of management’s evaluation of segment operating performance, such as charges related to significant severance actions and certain asset impairments; gains or losses from divestitures; the effects of certain legal settlements; corporate costs not allocated to the Corporation’s business segments; and other miscellaneous corporate activities.

Changes in net sales and operating profit generally are expressed in terms of volume. Changes in volume refer to increases or decreases in sales or operating profit resulting from varying production activity levels, deliveries or service levels on individual contracts. Volume changes in segment operating profit are typically based on the current profit booking rate for a particular contract.

In addition, comparability of the Corporation’s segment sales, operating profit and operating margin may be impacted favorably or unfavorably by changes in profit booking rates on the Corporation’s contracts accounted for using the percentage-of-completion method of accounting. Increases in the profit booking rates, typically referred to as risk retirements, usually relate to revisions in the estimated total costs that reflect improved conditions on a particular contract. Conversely, conditions on a particular contract may deteriorate resulting in an increase in the estimated total costs to complete and a reduction in the profit booking rate. Increases or decreases in profit booking rates are recognized in the current period and reflect the inception-to-date effect of such changes. Segment operating profit and margin may also be impacted favorably or unfavorably by other items. Favorable items may include the positive resolution of contractual matters, cost recoveries on restructuring charges, insurance recoveries and gains on sales of assets. Unfavorable items may include the adverse resolution of contractual matters; restructuring charges, except for significant severance actions which are excluded from segment operating results; reserves for disputes; certain asset impairments; and losses on sales of assets. The following table presents summary operating results of the Corporation’s five business segments and reconciles these amounts to the Corporation’s consolidated financial results.

Aeronautics’ net sales in the second quarter of 2016 increased $244 million, or 6 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $390 million for the F-35 program due to increased volume on aircraft production and sustainment activities. This increase was partially offset by lower net sales of approximately $180 million for the C-5 program due to decreased deliveries (two aircraft delivered in the second quarter of 2016 compared to four delivered in the same period in 2015) and sustainment activities.

Aeronautics’ operating profit in the second quarter of 2016 increased $34 million, or 8 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. Operating profit increased approximately $60 million for the F-35 program due to increased volume and sustainment activities and higher risk retirements. This increase was partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $25 million on various programs, primarily due to lower risk retirements and decreased volume. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were approximately $25 million lower in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

IS&GS’ net sales in the second quarter of 2016 decreased $71 million, or 5 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease was attributable to lower net sales of approximately $50 million as a result of the completion of certain programs to provide IT solutions to U.S. defense and intelligence agencies (including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) IT program) and increased competition, coupled with the fragmentation of existing large contracts into multiple smaller contracts that are awarded primarily on the basis of price when re-competed; and approximately $20 million due to lower volume, primarily as a result of schedule delays caused by development issues on a large international data center migration and consolidation program due to unanticipated challenges in application remediation and data center migration activities.

IS&GS’ operating profit in the second quarter of 2016 increased $44 million, or 41 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to higher operating profit of approximately $40 million due to contract close-out activities and completion of various programs and, to a lesser extent, improved program performance; and approximately $20 million due to reserves recorded in the second quarter of 2015 that were not repeated in the second quarter of 2016. These increases were partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $15 million as a result of the development issues on the international data center migration and consolidation program described above. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were approximately $55 million higher in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

MFC’s net sales in the second quarter of 2016 increased $31 million, or 2 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was attributable to higher net sales of approximately $60 million for fire control programs due to increased deliveries (including SNIPER® and Special Operations Forces Contractor Logistics Support Services (SOF CLSS)); and approximately $35 million for air and missile defense programs (primarily Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) due to increased deliveries). This increase was partially offset by lower net sales of approximately $45 million for tactical missiles programs due to fewer deliveries (primarily Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS)); and approximately $20 million for various other programs due to lower volume.

MFC’s operating profit in the second quarter of 2016 decreased $40 million, or 14 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease was attributable to lower operating profit of approximately $15 million for air and missile defense programs primarily due to a reserve for contractual matters, lower risk retirements and contract mix; approximately $15 million for tactical missile programs, primarily due to lower risk retirements on various programs and fewer deliveries (primarily GMLRS); and approximately $10 million for fire control programs, primarily due to lower risk retirements (Apache) and program mix. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were approximately $35 million lower in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

MST’s net sales in the second quarter of 2016 increased $1.1 billion, or 53 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to net sales of approximately $1.2 billion from Sikorsky, net of adjustments required to account for the acquisition of this business which occurred in the fourth quarter of 2015. This increase was partially offset by lower net sales of approximately $60 million for various programs, primarily due to decreased volume.

MST’s operating profit in the second quarter of 2016 decreased $60 million, or 23 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower operating profit of approximately $30 million from undersea systems programs, which includes a reserve for performance matters on an international program and lower risk retirements; and due to an operating loss of approximately $30 million from Sikorsky due primarily to intangible amortization and adjustments required to account for the acquisition of this business. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments and other matters, were approximately $35 million lower in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

Space Systems’ net sales in the second quarter of 2016 decreased $71 million, or 3 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of approximately $115 million for government satellite programs due to decreased volume (primarily Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS), Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) and Mobile User Objective System (MUOS)). This decrease was partially offset by higher net sales of approximately $40 million for strategic and defensive missile systems due to increased volume.

Space Systems’ operating profit in the second quarter of 2016 increased $46 million, or 16 percent, compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to approximately $80 million of increased equity earnings in joint ventures (primarily ULA). This increase was partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $20 million for government satellite programs due primarily to lower risk retirements (SBIRS and MUOS); and approximately $20 million for commercial satellite programs due primarily to performance matters on certain programs. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments and other matters, were approximately $75 million lower in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.

Total equity earnings recognized by Space Systems (primarily ULA) represented approximately $120 million, or 35 percent, of this business segment’s operating profit in the second quarter of 2016, compared to approximately $40 million, or 14 percent, in the second quarter of 2015.


INCOME TAXES

The Corporation’s effective income tax rate was 27.1 percent in the second quarter of 2016, compared to 30.8 percent in the second quarter of 2015. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for U.S. manufacturing activities and for dividends paid to the Corporation’s defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature. The rate in the second quarter of 2016 also benefited from the research and development tax credit, which was permanently extended and reinstated in the fourth quarter of 2015, and from the additional tax benefits related to employee share-based payment awards which are now recorded as income tax benefit or expense in earnings effective with the adoption of an accounting standard update in the second quarter of 2016. The Corporation early adopted the accounting standard update during the second quarter of 2016 and was therefore required to report the impacts as though the accounting standard update had been adopted on Jan. 1, 2016.  Accordingly, the Corporation recognized additional income tax benefits of $11 million and $115 million during the quarter and six months ended June 26, 2016.  The adjustments for the second quarter include only the quarterly impacts, whereas the adjustments for the first six months of 2016 include the second quarter impacts and the reclassification of income tax benefits of $104 million originally recognized in additional paid-in capital in the first quarter of 2016.
