Dépèche transmise le 1 février 2011 par Business Wire

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE: TGI) today reported that net sales for the third quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 totaled $810.9 million, a 159 percent increase from last year’s third quarter net sales of $313.5 million. Organic sales growth for the quarter was ten percent. Income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 increased 149 percent to $45.0 million, or $1.77 per diluted share, versus $18.1 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, for the third quarter of the prior year. The quarter’s results included approximately $1.0 million pre tax ($0.6 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share) of integration costs related to the acquisition of Vought Aircraft Industries (now Triumph Aerostructures-Vought Aircraft Division). Excluding these integration costs, income from continuing operations for the quarter was $45.6 million, or $1.79 per diluted share. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 increased 697 percent to $44.6 million, or $1.75 per diluted share, versus $5.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the third quarter of the prior year. The tax rate for the quarter was 30.5% and was favorably impacted by the effect of the recently enacted extension of the Research and Development Tax Credit. The tax rate for the remainder of the fiscal year will be approximately 34.5%. The number of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 increased to 25.5 million shares primarily due to the dilutive effect of the company’s convertible notes. During the quarter, the company used $3.0 million of cash flow from operations.

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 were $1.986 billion, a 111 percent increase from net sales of $942.8 million last fiscal year. Income from continuing operations for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 increased sixty-three percent to $98.4 million, or $4.26 per diluted share, versus $60.3 million, or $3.62 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The year to date results included approximately $19.7 million pre tax ($14.6 million after tax or $0.63 per diluted share) of transaction and integration expenses related to the Vought acquisition. Excluding the acquisition-related costs, income from continuing operations for the nine months was $113.0 million, or $4.89 per diluted share. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 increased 126 percent to $97.6 million, or $4.22 per diluted share, versus $43.1 million, or $2.59 per diluted share, in the prior year period. During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, the company generated $114.7 million of cash flow from operations.

Segments

In connection with the Vought acquisition, the company realigned its organizational structure into three reportable business segments, Aerostructures, Aerospace Systems and Aftermarket Services. Prior year period segment results have been adjusted to reflect this change.

Aerostructures

The Aerostructures segment reported net sales for the quarter of $613.5 million compared to $152.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of 302 percent. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $70.6 million compared to $24.2 million for the prior year period, an increase of 192 percent. Operating margin for the segment’s legacy business improved year over year by fifty basis points to sixteen percent.

Aerospace Systems

The Aerospace Systems segment reported net sales for the quarter of $124.7 million compared to $111.8 million in the prior year period, an increase of twelve percent. Organic sales growth for the quarter was seven percent. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $17.4 million compared to $14.9 million for the prior year period, an increase of seventeen percent. The segment’s operating results included $0.7 million of legal expenses associated with the ongoing trade secret litigation.

Aftermarket Services

The Aftermarket Services segment reported net sales for the quarter of $74.7 million compared to $51.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of forty-five percent, all of which was organic. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 was $9.5 million compared to $1.4 million for the prior year period, an increase of 583 percent. Operating margin for the quarter increased to thirteen percent, a 370 percent year over year improvement.

Outlook

Commenting on the company’s performance and its outlook for fiscal year 2011, Richard C. Ill, Triumph’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continued our strong performance during the third quarter with all three of our business segments delivering year over year organic growth in operating income and operating margin. We are proud of the significant cash flow from operations we have generated through nine months, which has exceeded our net income. In addition, our Aftermarket Services Group continues to show robust revenue growth and, even more importantly, significant margin improvement. The integration of Vought remains on track. Therefore, as our end markets and the great majority of our programs continue to strengthen, we are confident in our ability to deliver revenue growth, strong cash flow and earnings expansion throughout the remainder of our fiscal year and beyond."

“Based on current aircraft production rates, our current view of the purchase accounting impact resulting from the Vought acquisition and an increased weighted average share count of 23.7 million shares, we expect that earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2011 will be approximately $6.75 per diluted share excluding transaction and integration costs. Based on the progress of the Vought integration to date, we now expect to generate annual recurring synergies in excess of $18 million within the first twelve to eighteen months of the acquisition.”
