Neal J. Keating, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “While we faced several challenges during the third quarter we are pleased that Aerospace continued to deliver improved margin performance and Distribution achieved its fourth consecutive quarter of organic sales growth. In addition, we generated very strong free cash flow during the quarter, which provides us the ability to increase our free cash flow outlook for the year.

Distribution achieved sales growth of 13.0%; our highest rate of growth since the second quarter of 2011. Organic sales growth trends through mid-September were favorable; however, we experienced significantly weaker sales in late September, reducing our organic growth for the quarter to 1.7%. In addition, the first phase of our ERP implementation went live during the quarter causing a larger sales disruption than anticipated. We remained focused on servicing our customers and deployed additional resources after go-live to support our operations. Despite the impact this had on our results for the quarter, we have gained important experience from this critical phase of the implementation that will improve our future implementation efforts. Profit performance was also impacted by the higher expenses associated with our sales force expansion which we believe will provide positive momentum as we enter 2015.

Aerospace continues to deliver strong profit performance with sequential operating margin improvement to 17.4%. We are currently preparing the first of the New Zealand SH-2G(I) aircraft for acceptance by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence and expect this to occur in the next few weeks. We have had a number of program wins and contract extensions during the quarter and, more recently, we are pleased that the Peruvian Navy has agreed to buy New Zealand’s existing fleet of SH-2s. We are negotiating final terms with General Dynamics Canada and are prepared to provide upgrades and overhaul services for these aircraft. Once under contract, we expect program activities to commence later this year. Quoting activity remains high and there are a number of programs that would fit nicely with our capabilities and would allow us to expand our presence on a number of key platforms.”

Net sales $ 308,571 $ 272,951 $ 35,620 $ 877,627 $ 800,352 $ 77,275
Operating income $ 13,272 $ 14,675 $ (1,403 ) $ 39,826 $ 32,974 $ 6,852
% of sales 4.3 % 5.4 % (1.1 )% 4.5 % 4.1 % 0.4 %

The increase in sales in the third quarter resulted from $31.1 million in sales from acquisitions and an increase of $4.6 million in organic sales. Sales from acquisitions are classified as organic beginning with the thirteenth month following the acquisition. (See Table 6 for additional details regarding the Segment’s sales per sales day* performance.)

The decrease in operating income in the third quarter was driven by higher operating expenses, primarily related to net costs associated with our sales force expansion, an increase in incentive compensation, severance costs recorded during the period, higher depreciation expense and the impact associated with our ERP implementation. These increases were partially offset by the addition of operating income from 2013 and 2014 acquisitions.

% of sales 17.4 % 18.3 % (0.9 )% 16.5 % 17.4 % (0.9 )%

Sales for the third quarter increased due to higher shipments of the JPF to the U.S. Government, work performed on our SH-2G(I) contract with New Zealand and the delivery of three cabins under our AH-1Z program. These increases were partially offset by reduced deliveries of the JPF to foreign militaries, a reduction in shipments on our Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter program, decreased volume for our Egypt SH-2G(E) upgrade and Learjet 85 programs, and lower sales of engineering design services.

Operating margin in the third quarter was lower than the prior year primarily due to lower commercial sales of the JPF to foreign militaries and decreased volume under our Egypt SH-2G(E) upgrade program. These decreases were partially offset by work performed on our SH-2G(I) contract with New Zealand and higher sales to the U.S. Government under the JPF program.

Chief Financial Officer, Robert D. Starr, said, “Aerospace delivered a solid performance for the quarter, with a 17.4% operating margin, due to continued strong performance for our bearings products and the New Zealand Program. While we are pleased with this performance, our year over year margin results were lower largely due to the mix of our JPF sales in the quarter which shifted from higher margin direct commercial sales to lower margin USG sales. We have lowered our Aerospace sales outlook to reflect project delays and timing of deliveries for certain aerostructure programs. Based upon our anticipated fourth quarter sales mix we have raised our full-year operating profit margin outlook to 16.8% to 17.0%.

Distribution sales grew 13.0% to a record $309 million due to the contribution of B.W. Rogers and continued organic sales growth. We have reduced our sales outlook to reflect the estimated disruption related to our ERP implementation and to account for lower organic growth rate expectations that are largely attributable to weakness in the domestic mining sector, project delays within our Automation, Control and Energy product platform and continued sales weakness in Mexico. Our revised margin outlook reflects the deleveraging impact associated with the decrease in sales and the impact of the ERP roll-out.

We are reducing our Corporate expense outlook by $1 million to approximately $51 million, excluding costs associated with the sale of the idle facility in Moosup, based on favorable trends through the third quarter driven by our cost control initiatives.

Finally, given our better than anticipated performance in free cash flow during the quarter we are raising our outlook for the year to $55 million to $60 million.”

2014 Outlook

Our updated 2014 outlook is as follows:

  • Distribution:
    • Sales of $1,185 million to $1,195 million
    • Operating margins of 4.5% to 4.6%
  • Aerospace:
    • Sales of $630 million to $640 million
    • Operating margins of 16.8% to 17.0%
  • Interest expense of approximately $13.5 million
  • Corporate expenses of approximately $51 million, excluding $2.3 million of charges related to the sale of the idle facility in Moosup, CT
  • Estimated annualized tax rate of approximately 34%
  • Depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $38 million
  • Capital expenditures of $30 million to $35 million
  • Free cash flow* in the range of $55 million to $60 million

Non-GAAP Measure Disclosure

Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measures indicated by an asterisk (*) used in this release or in other disclosures provide important perspectives into the Company’s ongoing business performance. The Company does not intend for the information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures. Other companies may define the measures differently. We define the non-GAAP measures used in this report and other disclosures as follows:

Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated on our consolidated results as well as the results of our reportable segments. Adjusted EBITDA differs from Segment Operating Income, as calculated in accordance with GAAP, in that it excludes depreciation and amortization. We have made numerous investments in our business, such as acquisitions and increased capital expenditures, including facility improvements, new machinery and equipment, improvements to our information technology infrastructure and new ERP systems. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional perspective on the operating results of the organization and earnings capacity and helps improve the comparability of our results between periods by eliminating the impact of non-cash depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to cash used for debt service requirements and thus does not reflect available funds for distributions, reinvestment or other discretionary uses. Adjusted EBITDA is not presented as an alternative measure of operating results or cash flows from operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. No other adjustments were made during the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 26, 2014 and September 27, 2013.

Organic Sales per Sales Day – Organic sales per sales day is defined as GAAP net sales of the Distribution segment less sales derived from acquisitions, divided by the number of sales days in a given period. Sales days are essentially days that the Company’s branch locations are open for business and exclude weekends and holidays. Management believes organic sales per sales day provides an important perspective on how net sales may be impacted by the number of days the segment is open for business and provides a basis for comparing periods in which the number of sales days differ.

The following table illustrates the calculation of organic sales per sales day using “Net sales: Distribution” from the “Segment and Geographic Information” footnote in the “Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements” from the Company’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2014. Sales from acquisitions are classified as organic beginning with the thirteenth month following the acquisition. Prior period information is adjusted to reflect acquisition sales for that period as organic sales when calculating organic sales per sales day.

% change in organic sales per sales day (a-b):b 1.7 % (1.2)% 2.3 % (3.4)%

Free Cash Flow – Free cash flow is defined as GAAP “Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities” less “Expenditures for property, plant & equipment”. Management believes free cash flow provides an important perspective on the cash available for dividends to shareholders, debt repayment, and acquisitions after making capital investments required to support ongoing business operations and long-term value creation. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as it excludes certain mandatory expenditures such as repayment of maturing debt. Management uses free cash flow internally to assess both business performance and overall liquidity. The following table illustrates the calculation of free cash flow using “Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities” and “Expenditures for property, plant & equipment”, GAAP measures from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows included in this release.

Free Cash Flow:
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 85.0 to $ 95.0
Expenditures for property, plant and equipment 30.0 to 35.0
Free Cash Flow $ 55.0 to $ 60.0

Debt to Capitalization Ratio – Debt to capitalization ratio is calculated by dividing debt by capitalization. Debt is defined as GAAP “Notes payable” plus “Current portion of long-term debt” plus “Long-term debt, excluding current portion”. Capitalization is defined as Debt plus GAAP “Total shareholders’ equity”. Management believes that debt to capitalization is a measurement of financial leverage and provides an insight into the financial structure of the Company and its financial strength. The following table illustrates the calculation of debt to capitalization using GAAP measures from the condensed consolidated balance sheets included in this release.

Total shareholders’ equity 547,737 511,292
Capitalization $ 885,763 $ 786,506
Debt to capitalization 38.2 % 35.0 %

Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share – Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share are defined as net earnings and diluted earnings per share, less items that are not indicative of the operating performance of the business for the period presented. These items are included in the reconciliation below. Management uses Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in our business and to assess its performance relative to its competitors. We believe that this information is useful for investors and financial institutions seeking to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance.

The following table illustrates the calculation of Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings and Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share using “Net earnings” and “Diluted earnings per share” from the “Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations” from the Company’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2014.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income for Distribution – Non-GAAP adjusted operating income for Distribution are defined as operating income for Distribution, less items that are not indicative of the operating performance of Distribution for the period presented. These items are included in the reconciliation below. Management uses Non-GAAP adjusted operating income to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in our segments and to assess their performance relative to their competitors. We believe that this information is useful for investors and financial institutions seeking to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance.
