Moog Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

EAST AURORA, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2016) - Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A) (NYSE: MOG.B) today announced second quarter earnings per share of $0.85, up 6% from last year on slightly lower sales of $611 million. Cash flow from operating activities was strong, at $79 million, while net earnings of $31 million were down marginally from a year ago.

Total Aircraft Controls sales in the quarter were slightly higher at $276 million. Commercial OEM sales were 3% higher, at $114 million. Increased sales to Airbus, up 36%, offset slightly weaker Boeing sales, down 5%, and business jet sales, down 20%. Commercial aftermarket sales were $30 million, up 2%, on initial provisioning spares for the A350 program.

Military aircraft sales were down 2%, to $132 million. OEM sales were slightly higher, at $81 million, with higher foreign military sales offsetting lower V-22 tilt rotor sales. Military aftermarket sales were down 6%, to $51 million, as the C-5 modernization program continues to wind down.

Space and Defense segment sales were $89 million, 4% lower than a year ago. Space sales were $43 million, a decrease of 12% due to lower sales of controls for satellites. Defense sales of $46 million were up 4% on improved military vehicle sales.

Sales in the Company's Industrial Systems segment were flat at $128 million. Sales of simulation and test products, including motion bases for flight training simulators, were 11% higher, at $31 million. Excluding currency effects, industrial automation sales of $66 million were stable and in line with the broader industrial economy. Sales into energy markets were down 6% from last year, to $31 million.

Components segment sales at $94 million, were 18% lower than last year but up nicely from the first quarter. Sales of aerospace and defense products were $40 million, down 13%, partly due to softer helicopter program and aftermarket sales. Sales into energy, industrial and medical markets experienced slowdowns across a range of programs.

The Medical Devices segment had sales of $24 million in the quarter, mostly unchanged from a year ago. Through the first six months of the year, excluding previously divested life sciences sales, organic sales are up 11%.

The Company incurred $8 million in restructuring during the quarter, mostly associated with the Aircraft Controls segment.

The twelve month consolidated backlog is $1.2 billion compared to $1.3 billion a year ago.

The Company maintained its previous guidance for 2016 to include sales for the year at $2.47 billion and earnings per share of $3.35, plus or minus $0.15 per share. 

"We're pleased with the results of the quarter," said John Scannell, Chairman and CEO. "We came in at the high end of our guidance, had strong cash flow and we're maintaining our sales and EPS forecast for the full year."

  • 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;
  • we may not realize the full amounts reflected in our backlog as revenue, which could adversely affect our future revenue and growth prospects;
  • 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 The Boeing Company as a customer or a significant reduction in sales to The Boeing Company 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;

  • 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 otherwise adversely affect our business;
  • governmental regulations and customer demands related to conflict minerals may adversely impact our operating results;
  • 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;
  • our operations are subject to environmental laws, and complying with those laws may cause us to incur significant costs; and
  • we are involved in various legal proceedings, the outcome of which may be unfavorable to us.

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.
