Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE:TGI) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.

“Our fourth quarter results reflected the strength of our product offering and the extensive capabilities we can provide our customers across the entire aerospace supply chain, and we are pleased to have achieved record quarterly net sales,” said Richard C. Ill, Triumph’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Aerospace Systems Group and the Aftermarket Services Group delivered another quarter of strong operating margins with both growing on a sequential quarterly basis, and Aftermarket Services realizing organic sales growth for the fiscal year. Performance in the Aerostructures segment improved during the quarter with the recently transferred Gulfstream wing programs progressing well, but the segment is not yet at the level of performance we would expect on a go-forward basis.”

Mr. Ill continued, “In fiscal year 2015, we continued to invest in each of our three segments through the completion of key strategic transactions that expanded our capabilities, increased market share and extended our global footprint. We generated strong cash flow from operations and our backlog increased to over $5 billion. While work remains to be done for Triumph to realize its full potential, we are intensely focused on leveraging the strength of our portfolio and controlling our costs to drive sustainable growth and value creation.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2015 Highlights

For the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2015, net sales were a record $1.080 billion, a fifteen percent increase from fiscal fourth quarter 2014 net sales of $936.4 million. Organic sales for the quarter decreased two percent primarily due to decreased production on the C-17 and the 747-8 programs.

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $82.8 million, or $1.66 per diluted share, compared to $42.3 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year. The quarter’s results included approximately $4.2 million pre-tax ($0.05 per diluted share) of costs related to the Jefferson Street/Red Oak facility transition. Excluding these costs, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $85.5 million, or $1.71 per diluted share. Excluding non-recurring items, earnings per share for the prior fiscal year’s fourth quarter were $1.39 per diluted share. The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year 2015 quarter was 50.0 million shares.

Modified adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Modified Adjusted EBITDA) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $149.1 million and reflected a Modified Adjusted EBITDA margin of fourteen percent. This includes a reduction of $20.5 million for the amortization of the fair value of contracts associated with the Gulfstream G650 and G280 wing programs, for which the company had previously received an upfront cash payment of $160.0 million.

During the quarter, the company repurchased 1.2 million shares of stock under the company’s existing 5.5 million share repurchase authorization. As of March 31, 2015, approximately 2.3 million shares remained under the share repurchase authorization.

Full Fiscal Year 2015 Highlights

For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, net sales totaled $3.889 billion, a three percent increase from fiscal year 2014 net sales of $3.763 billion. Organic sales for the fiscal year decreased five percent.

Net income for the fiscal year 2015 was 238.7 million, or $4.68 earnings per diluted share, versus $206.3 million, or $3.91 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2014. Excluding the items detailed below in Table A, net income for fiscal year 2015 was 292.1 million, or $5.73 earnings per diluted share. The prior fiscal year included approximately $72.4 million pre-tax ($0.89 per diluted share) of non-recurring costs. The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2015 was 51.0 shares.

Given this, we will not be providing financial guidance at this time.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Disclosures

We prepare and publicly release quarterly unaudited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) guidance on Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations, we also disclose and discuss certain non-GAAP financial measures in our public releases. Currently, the non-GAAP financial measure that we disclose is Adjusted EBITDA, which is our net income before interest, income taxes, amortization of acquired contract liabilities, curtailments, settlements and early retirement incentives, legal settlements, depreciation and amortization. We disclose Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated and an operating segment basis in our earnings releases, investor conference calls and filings with the SEC. The non-GAAP financial measures that we use may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Also, in the future, we may disclose different non-GAAP financial measures in order to help our investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare our future results of operations to our previously reported results of operations.

We view Adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure and as such we believe that the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to it is net income. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude from net income the financial items that we believe should be separately identified to provide additional analysis of the financial components of the day-to-day operation of our business. We have outlined below the type and scope of these exclusions and the material limitations on the use of these non-GAAP financial measures as a result of these exclusions. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity, as an alternative to net income (loss), income from continuing operations, or as an indicator of any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors in our securities should not rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a substitute for any GAAP financial measure, including net income (loss) or income from continuing operations. In addition, we urge investors and potential investors in our securities to carefully review the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income set forth below, in our earnings releases and in other filings with the SEC and to carefully review the GAAP financial information included as part of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our Annual Reports on Form 10-K that are filed with the SEC, as well as our quarterly earnings releases, and compare the GAAP financial information with our Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to internally measure our operating and management performance and by investors as a supplemental financial measure to evaluate the performance of our business that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, we believe provides additional information that is useful to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. We have spent more than 15 years expanding our product and service capabilities partially through acquisitions of complementary businesses. Due to the expansion of our operations, which included acquisitions, our net income has included significant charges for depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes these charges and provides meaningful information about the operating performance of our business, apart from charges for depreciation and amortization. We believe the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA helps investors meaningfully evaluate and compare our performance from quarter to quarter and from year to year. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our ongoing operating performance because the isolation of non-cash income and expenses, such as amortization of acquired contract liabilities, depreciation and amortization, and non-operating items, such as interest and income taxes, provides additional information about our cost structure, and, over time, helps track our operating progress. In addition, investors, securities analysts and others have regularly relied on Adjusted EBITDA to provide a financial measure by which to compare our operating performance against that of other companies in our industry.

Set forth below are descriptions of the financial items that have been excluded from our net income to calculate Adjusted EBITDA and the material limitations associated with using this non-GAAP financial measure as compared to net income:

  • Legal settlements may be useful to investors to consider because they reflect gains or losses from disputes with third parties. We do not believe that these earnings necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Curtailments, settlements and early retirement incentives may be useful to investors to consider because it represents the current period impact of the change in defined benefit obligation due to the reduction in future service costs. We do not believe these charges (gains) necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Amortization of acquired contract liabilities may be useful for investors to consider because it represents the non-cash earnings on the fair value of below market contracts acquired through acquisitions. We do not believe these earnings necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash earnings related to our operations.
  • Amortization expenses may be useful for investors to consider because it represents the estimated attrition of our acquired customer base and the diminishing value of product rights and licenses. We do not believe these charges necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash charges related to our operating cost structure.
  • Depreciation may be useful for investors to consider because they generally represent the wear and tear on our property and equipment used in our operations. We do not believe these charges necessarily reflect the current and ongoing cash charges related to our operating cost structure.
  • The amount of interest expense and other we incur may be useful for investors to consider and may result in current cash inflows or outflows. However, we do not consider the amount of interest expense and other to be a representative component of the day-to-day operating performance of our business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Disclosures (continued)

  • Income tax expense may be useful for investors to consider because it generally represents the taxes which may be payable for the period and the change in deferred income taxes during the period and may reduce the amount of funds otherwise available for use in our business. However, we do not consider the amount of income tax expense to be a representative component of the day-to-day operating performance of our business.

Management compensates for the above-described limitations of using non-GAAP measures by using a non-GAAP measure only to supplement our GAAP results and to provide additional information that is useful to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business.

Modified Adjusted EBITDA is included to adjust for the impacts of our recent relocation from our Jefferson Street Facility and our provision for forward losses on our 747-8 long-term contract, in order to show the more comparable results period to period.
