Moog's Third Quarter Sales and EPS Higher

EAST AURORA, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A) (NYSE: MOG.B) announced today third quarter earnings of $48 million, or $1.08 a share, an increase of 44% over last year's $.75 per share. Sales in the quarter of $684 million were up 2% from last year's $671 million.

Aircraft sales in the quarter of $294 million were up 8% from a year ago. Commercial aircraft sales of $147 million were up $30 million, or 25%. Sales of OEM products to Boeing were 39% higher, at $70 million, while Airbus sales were up 21%. Commercial aftermarket revenue, at $34 million, was 20% higher in the quarter due to strong initial provisioning of 787 spares.

Military aircraft sales of $148 million were down 5% year over year. F-35 sales of $23 million were down $6 million, the result of a decrease in development program support. OEM sales for helicopters were down $7 million, as delivery rates moderated from a year ago. Foreign military sales were higher, offsetting some of the weakness in domestic military OEM sales. Military aftermarket sales were up 7% on increases in repair contracts on various programs, including the F-35 and V-22.

Space and Defense sales of $103 million were 2% higher in the quarter. Space market sales were higher, at $61 million, on improved sales of components for satellites, launch vehicles and the NASA Soft Capture System. Defense sales were $42 million, down $6 million. A year ago this segment benefited from the LAV-25 turret upgrade program.

Sales in the Industrial Systems segment were flat at $148 million. Within the energy market, slower sales of steam and gas turbine products were offset by higher wind energy sales as a new AC pitch control system was introduced in Brazil. Industrial automation sales were up 9%, at $80 million, on small increases in each of the underlying product lines. Sales of simulation and test products were down $6 million, or 16%, due to inventory adjustments at some OEM customers.

The Components segment had sales in the quarter of $111 million, down 2% from last year. Sales into aerospace and defense markets were slightly lower on weaker military aircraft OEM sales and slower spares activity. Non-aerospace and defense sales, including products sold into marine energy markets, were up $2 million, to $64 million.

The Medical Devices segment had sales of $29 million, down $9 million. A year ago, the Ethox Buffalo operation was sold, accounting for a third of the sales decrease. Lower pump and administration set sales accounted for the other $6 million decline.

The current backlog of $1.38 billion is up 6% from the same quarter a year ago.

The Company updated its guidance for fiscal 2014 to include sales of $2.65 billion, net earnings of $165 million and earnings per share of $3.65, compared to $2.63 in fiscal 2013.

The Company also provided its initial projections for fiscal 2015 with sales of $2.69 billion, net earnings of $181 million and earnings per share of $4.25, a 16% increase over fiscal 2014 guidance.

"This was a very good quarter for our company with increased sales, record earnings and very strong cash flow," said John Scannell, Chairman and CEO. "We are on track for fiscal '14, which will be a great year for Moog. As we look to fiscal '15, we should see further improvement. We're forecasting very modest sales growth but a 16% increase in earnings per share. Company operating margins in fiscal '15 will expand by 50 basis points, despite some margin challenges in our Aircraft segment. We also expect another year of strong cash flow. Overall, if fiscal '15 turns out as we expect, it will be another record year for the company."

In conjunction with today's release, Moog will host a conference call beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET, which will be broadcast live over the Internet. John Scannell, Chairman and CEO, and Don Fishback, CFO, will host the call. Supplemental financial data will be available on the webcast web page approximately 60 minutes prior to the conference call.

These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to several factors, risks and uncertainties, the impact or occurrence of which could cause actual results to differ materially from the expected results described in the forward-looking statements. These important factors, risks and uncertainties include:

  • the markets we serve are cyclical and sensitive to domestic and foreign economic conditions and events, which may cause our operating results to fluctuate;
  • we operate in highly competitive markets with competitors who may have greater resources than we possess;
  • we depend heavily on government contracts that may not be fully funded or may be terminated, and the failure to receive funding or the termination of one or more of these contracts could reduce our sales and increase our costs;
  • we make estimates in accounting for long-term contracts, and changes in these estimates may have significant impacts on our earnings;
  • we enter into fixed-price contracts, which could subject us to losses if we have cost overruns;
  • if our subcontractors or suppliers fail to perform their contractual obligations, our prime contract performance and our ability to obtain future business could be materially and adversely impacted;
  • contracting on government programs is subject to significant regulation, including rules related to bidding, billing and accounting kickbacks and false claims, and any non-compliance could subject us to fines and penalties or possible debarment;
  • the loss of Boeing as a customer or a significant reduction in sales to Boeing could adversely impact our operating results;
  • our new product research and development efforts may not be successful which could reduce our sales and earnings;
  • our inability to adequately enforce and protect our intellectual property or defend against assertions of infringement could prevent or restrict our ability to compete;
  • our business operations may be adversely affected by information systems interruptions, intrusions or new software implementations;
  • our indebtedness and restrictive covenants under our credit facilities could limit our operational and financial flexibility;
  • significant changes in discount rates, rates of return on pension assets, mortality tables and other factors could affect our earnings and equity and increase our pension funding requirements;
  • a write-off of all or part of our goodwill or other intangible assets could adversely affect our operating results and net worth;
  • our sales and earnings may be affected if we cannot identify, acquire or integrate strategic acquisitions, or if we engage in divesting activities;
  • our operations in foreign countries expose us to political and currency risks and adverse changes in local legal and regulatory environments;
  • unforeseen exposure to additional income tax liabilities may affect our operating results;
  • government regulations could limit our ability to sell our products outside the United States and could otherwise adversely affect our business;
  • the failure or misuse of our products may damage our reputation, necessitate a product recall or result in claims against us that exceed our insurance coverage, thereby requiring us to pay significant damages;
  • future terror attacks, war, natural disasters or other catastrophic events beyond our control could negatively impact our business; and
  • our operations are subject to environmental laws, and complying with those laws may cause us to incur significant costs.

These factors are not exhaustive. New factors, risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time that may affect the forward-looking statements made herein.
