Teledyne Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter Results

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY):

“We are pleased to report record quarterly and full year earnings per share. In addition, we are proud of our consistent performance, having grown full year earnings per share for nine consecutive years”

  • Record fourth quarter earnings per share of $0.99
  • Fourth quarter 2010 earnings per share included $0.24 of tax credits offset by $0.08 of acquisition and disposition activity. Fourth quarter 2009 earnings per share of $0.88 included $0.16 of net tax credits offset by after-tax charges of $0.04
  • Record full year earnings per share of $3.27
  • Announced agreement to acquire DALSA Corporation
  • Announced agreement to sell Teledyne’s general aviation piston engine businesses

Teledyne Technologies today reported fourth quarter 2010 sales of $452.3 million, compared with sales of $454.4 million for the same period of 2009. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $36.6 million ($0.99 per diluted share), compared with net income of $32.2 million ($0.88 per diluted share) in the fourth quarter of 2009. The fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009 included net tax credits of $9.0 million and $6.0 million, respectively. The fourth quarter of 2010 also included certain pretax charges totaling $4.8 million for acquisition and disposition related expenses. The fourth quarter of 2009, also included certain pretax charges totaling $2.5 million for the net impact of product recall and replacement costs, acquisition related expenses and inventory write-downs.

“We are pleased to report record quarterly and full year earnings per share. In addition, we are proud of our consistent performance, having grown full year earnings per share for nine consecutive years,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Teledyne continues to evolve, with a greater proportion of sales and operating profit derived from commercial electronics and instrumentation for global energy, water quality and industrial applications. We also recently announced two significant transactions which will further transition our business mix. The pending acquisition of DALSA Corporation, whose imaging sensors, cameras and software primarily serve the commercial machine vision market, will add total sales of approximately $200 million on a full year basis. In addition, the pending sale of Continental Motors to a strong international buyer will enhance Continental Motors’ opportunity to enter the global market for general aviation piston engines, while allowing Teledyne to focus on our core businesses. Following these transactions, which we expect to close in the first quarter of 2011, Teledyne will be transformed into a pure-play electronics, instrumentation and engineering focused company.”

Full Year 2010

Sales for 2010 were $1,777.9 million, compared with $1,765.2 million for 2009. Net income for 2010 was $120.5 million ($3.27 per diluted share), compared with $113.3 million ($3.10 per diluted share) for 2009. Net income for 2010 included pension expense of $5.2 million ($4.4 million in net pension income after recovery from certain government contracts), compared with pension expense of $22.5 million ($10.1 million in net pension expense after recovery from certain government contracts) in 2009. Net income for 2010 and 2009 also included net tax credits of $12.5 million and $15.0 million, respectively.

Review of Operations (Comparisons are with the fourth quarter of 2009, unless noted otherwise. The fourth quarter of 2010 contained 13 weeks and the fourth quarter of 2009 contained 14 weeks.)

Electronics and Communications

The Electronics and Communications segment’s fourth quarter 2010 sales were $335.6 million, compared with $321.9 million, an increase of 4.3%. Fourth quarter 2010 operating profit was $48.1 million, compared with operating profit of $46.0 million, an increase of 4.6%.

The fourth quarter 2010 sales change resulted primarily from higher sales of defense electronics, electronic instrumentation and other commercial electronics. The revenue growth in defense electronics was driven by acquisitions made in 2010. Sales of defense electronics included $9.9 million in sales from recent acquisitions, including the Paradise Datacom and Labtech divisions of Intelek plc (“Intelek”) and Optimum Optical Systems, Inc. Sales of electronic instrumentation primarily reflected higher sales of industrial instrumentation, partially offset by reduced sales of environmental instrumentation products. Sales of other commercial electronics primarily reflected higher sales for avionics systems. The increase in operating profit reflected the impact of higher sales, lower pension expense and a $0.8 million reduction in certain insurance reserves, partially offset by $1.4 million in pretax acquisition-related costs. The fourth quarter of 2009 included inventory write-downs of $0.7 million. Operating profit included pension expense of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $2.5 million. Pension expense allocated to contracts pursuant to U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (“CAS”) was $0.7 in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $0.6 million.

In December 2010, Teledyne and DALSA Corporation (TSX: DSA) (“DALSA”) jointly announced that they entered into a definitive agreement that provides for the acquisition of DALSA Corporation by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Teledyne. Pursuant to the transaction, Teledyne will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of DALSA for CAD $18.25 per share payable in cash. The aggregate value for the transaction is approximately CAD $341 million, taking into account DALSA’s stock options and net cash as of September 30, 2010. The completion of the transaction is subject to a number of closing conditions, including the approval of shareholders of DALSA.

Engineered Systems

The Engineered Systems segment’s fourth quarter 2010 sales were $67.3 million, compared with $86.5 million, a decrease of 22.2%. Operating profit was $6.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with operating profit of $7.9 million, a decrease of 20.3%.

The fourth quarter 2010 sales decrease primarily reflected lower sales for NASA programs and lower sales of missile defense programs, primarily the Ground-based Midcourse Defense engineering services and also reflected lower sales of gas centrifuge service modules, partially offset by $3.5 million in sales from the acquisition of the CML division of Intelek. Operating profit in the fourth quarter of 2010 reflected the impact of lower sales and disposition related costs of $0.8 million related to the reduction of organizational conflict of interest business activity, partially offset by lower pension expense. Operating profit included pension expense of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $2.7 million. Pension expense allocated to contracts pursuant to CAS was $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $2.4 million.

Aerospace Engines and Components

The Aerospace Engines and Components segment’s fourth quarter 2010 sales were $30.8 million, compared with $26.9 million, an increase of 14.5%. The operating loss was $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with an operating loss of $3.0 million.

Fourth quarter 2010 sales primarily reflected higher sales of engines for new OEM aircraft. Operating profit in 2010 included $1.5 million in professional fee expenses related to the potential sale of this segment. Fourth quarter operating profit in 2010 included lower LIFO expense of $1.2 million. Operating profit in 2010 and 2009 included $0.5 million and $1.3 million, respectively, from the reduction in certain insurance reserves. The fourth quarter of 2009 included the net impact of product recall and replacement costs of $1.3 million. In December 2010, Teledyne and AVIC International Holding Corporation (“AVIC International”) announced an agreement to sell Teledyne’s general aviation piston engine businesses, which comprise the Aerospace Engines and Components segment, to Technify Motor (USA) LTD., a subsidiary of AVIC International, for $186 million in cash. The transaction is subject to a number of closing conditions.

Energy and Power Systems

The Energy and Power Systems segment’s fourth quarter 2010 sales were $18.6 million, compared with $19.1 million, a decrease of 2.6%. Operating profit increased to $2.7 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared with operating profit of $0.7 million.

Fourth quarter 2010 sales primarily reflected lower government power systems sales, partially offset by higher battery product sales. Operating profit primarily reflected higher margins related to the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (“JASSM”) turbine engine program and lower LIFO expense of $0.2 million.

Additional Financial Information

Cash Flow

Cash provided by operating activities was $68.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $79.8 million. The lower cash provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter of 2010 reflected the impact of an $8.0 million contribution to a foreign pension plan. Free cash flow (cash from operating activities less capital expenditures) was $52.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $70.4 million and also reflected higher capital spending and lower cash provided by operating activities. At January 2, 2011, total debt was $267.3 million, which included $250.0 million in senior notes and $17.3 million in capital lease obligations. Cash and cash equivalents were $75.1 million at January 2, 2011. The company received $1.6 million from the exercise of employee stock options in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $0.6 million. Capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $16.0 million, compared with $9.4 million. The 2010 amount includes $7.8 million for the purchase of a previously leased facility. Depreciation and amortization expense for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $12.6 million, compared with $11.5 million. As noted earlier, in December 2010 Teledyne entered into an agreement to acquire DALSA for CAD $18.25 per share payable in cash. The aggregate value for the transaction is approximately CAD $341 million, taking into account DALSA’s stock options and net cash as of September 30, 2010. In addition, in December 2010, Teledyne entered into an agreement to sell Teledyne’s general aviation piston engine businesses for $186 million in cash.

The company defines free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities (a measure prescribed by generally accepted accounting principles) less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment.  Adjusted free cash flow eliminates the impact of pension contributions on a net of tax basis.  The company believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is useful to assist management and the investment community in analyzing the company’s ability to generate cash flow, including the impact of voluntary and required pension contributions.

 

(b)

All pension contributions were voluntary.

 

Pension

Pension expense was $1.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared with $5.6 million. Pension expense allocated to contracts pursuant to CAS was $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared with $3.1 million. Pension expense determined allowable under CAS can generally be recovered through the pricing of products and services sold to the U.S. Government. In accordance with pension accounting, in the fourth quarter of 2010 the company recorded a $9.8 million non-cash decrease to stockholders’ equity for the minimum benefit plan liability adjustment component of equity and also recorded a $13.4 million increase to the long-term pension liability. The decrease to equity did not affect net income and was recorded net of deferred taxes.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 18.8% compared with 23.9%. The fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009 included net tax credits of $9.0 million and $6.0 million, respectively, primarily research and development tax credits. Excluding the net tax credits, the effective tax rates for the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, would have been 38.8% and 38.1%, respectively.

The total year 2010 effective tax rate was 31.2% compared with an effective tax rate of 29.4% for 2009. The effective tax rates for total year 2010 and 2009 included tax credits of $12.5 million and $15.0 million, respectively. Excluding these items the company’s effective tax rate for total year 2010 and 2009 would have been 38.4% and 38.7%, respectively.

Forward-Looking Statements Cautionary Notice

This press release contains forward-looking statements, as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, directly and indirectly relating to growth opportunities. All statements made in this press release that are not historical in nature should be considered forward-looking. Actual results could differ materially from these forward-looking statements. Many factors could change the anticipated results: including disruptions in the global economy; insurance and credit markets; changes in demand for products sold to the defense electronics, instrumentation and energy exploration and production, commercial aviation, semiconductor and communications markets; funding, continuation and award of government programs; continued liquidity of our suppliers and customers (including commercial aviation customers); and availability of credit to our suppliers and customers; and a potential decrease in offshore oil production and exploration activity due to April 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Increasing fuel costs could negatively affect the markets of our commercial aviation businesses. Lower oil and natural gas prices could negatively affect our business units that supply the oil and gas industry. In addition, financial market fluctuations affect the value of the company’s pension assets.

Global responses to terrorism and other perceived threats increase uncertainties associated with forward-looking statements about our businesses. Various responses to terrorism and perceived threats could realign government programs, and affect the composition, funding or timing of our programs. Changes in the policies of U.S. and foreign governments could result, over time, in reductions and realignment in defense or other government spending and further changes in programs in which the company participates, including anticipated reductions in the company’s missile defense engineering services and certain NASA programs.

The company continues to take action to assure compliance with the internal controls, disclosure controls and other requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. While the company believes its control systems are effective, there are inherent limitations in all control systems, and misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Teledyne Technologies’ growth strategy includes possible acquisitions. The company cannot provide any assurance as to when, if or on what terms any other acquisitions will be made. Acquisitions involve various inherent risks, such as, among others, our ability to integrate acquired businesses and retain customers and to achieve identified financial and operating synergies. There are additional risks associated with acquiring, owning and operating businesses outside of the United States, including those arising from U.S. and foreign government policy changes or actions and exchange rate fluctuations.

The pending sale of our piston engines businesses and the pending acquisition of DALSA Corporation are subject to a number of closing conditions, including in the case of the DALSA transaction the receipt of DALSA shareholder approval. Anticipated benefits of the DALSA acquisition are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including Teledyne’s ability to integrate the acquired operations, retain customers and achieve operating synergies, the ability of DALSA to develop and market new products, the operating results of DALSA being lower than anticipated, and unexpected acquisition-related costs and expenses.

Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements is contained in Teledyne Technologies’ periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K and its 2010 first quarter, second quarter and third quarter Forms 10-Q. The company assumes no duty to update forward-looking statements.
