Dépèche transmise le 26 octobre 2011 par Business Wire

MELBOURNE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) reported revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 of $1.46 billion compared with $1.41 billion in the prior-year quarter. GAAP net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $122 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared with $164 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $129 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared with $165 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Revenue and earnings in the prior-year quarter benefited from $235 million in expedited shipments of tactical radios to equip MRAP vehicles. Non-GAAP net income excludes acquisition-related costs in both quarters. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in Tables 5 through 8, along with the accompanying notes.

“Harris began fiscal 2012 with significantly higher orders, showing both strong year-over-year and sequential growth”

Orders in the first quarter were $1.62 billion, a 23 percent increase compared with $1.32 billion in the prior-year quarter and a sequential 20 percent increase compared with $1.35 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

“Harris began fiscal 2012 with significantly higher orders, showing both strong year-over-year and sequential growth,” said Howard L. Lance, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Orders in the first quarter also exceeded revenue, resulting in a greater than one book-to-bill for the company. RF Communications won several key U.S. and international pursuits, driving a book-to-bill of greater than one in Tactical Communications and further solidifying Harris as the world leader in tactical wideband networking.

“Integrated Network Solutions was awarded significant new contracts during the quarter, including several multi-year awards in Healthcare Solutions for U.S. government agencies. In Government Communications Systems, we continued to benefit from the pick-up in classified program wins that began in the previous quarter.”

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, Harris repurchased $400 million in shares under the company’s new $1 billion share repurchase authorization approved by the Board of Directors earlier in the quarter. Approximately 10.6 million shares were repurchased, representing an 8.6 percent reduction in the shares outstanding.

RF Communications

Revenue for the RF Communications segment in the first quarter was $497 million compared with $567 million in the prior year. Revenue included $373 million in Tactical Communications and $124 million in Public Safety and Professional Communications. The prior-year first quarter revenue benefited from $235 million in expedited shipments of tactical radios to equip MRAP vehicles. International revenue in Tactical Communications increased significantly driven by major deliveries to Australia, Kenya, and countries in North Africa and Central Asia. Tactical Communications revenue in the U.S. market, excluding shipments for MRAP vehicles, also increased significantly as a result of continuing Falcon III® adoption in support of the transition to wideband networking.

Operating income for the RF Communications segment was $154 million in the first quarter compared with $229 million in the prior-year quarter, which benefited significantly from the expedited shipments of tactical radios to equip MRAP vehicles and the related favorable product mix.

First quarter orders for the RF Communications segment totaled $514 million, including $398 million in Tactical Communications and $116 million in Public Safety and Professional Communications. At the end of the first quarter, total segment backlog was $1.5 billion, including $796 million in Tactical Communications and $712 million in Public Safety and Professional Communications. The book-to-bill in Tactical Communications was greater than one.

Tactical Communications orders in the U.S. market included $66 million for Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radios to provide wideband networking capability for the first eight Brigade Combat Teams under the U.S. Army’s Brigade Combat Modernization Program, $29 million from the U.S. Air Force to provide Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radios for networked-enabled missions such as fire coordination and precision air support, $20 million for Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radios and vehicular amplifier adapters to equip MRAP vehicles for the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, and orders of $16 million and $15 million from the U.S. Department of Defense for Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radios. Harris also received a $22 million order from the U.S. Department of Defense for Falcon II® high-frequency vehicular radios.

Tactical Communications orders in the international market included two orders totaling $52 million from a country in Southeast Asia for Integrated Command and Control Systems with Falcon III and Falcon II tactical radios, a $38 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with an $8 million initial delivery order to supply military communications and field support services to international partners in the Caribbean and South America, $5 million from Poland for Falcon III AN/PRC-117G wideband networking radios, $5 million from the Republic of Georgia for Falcon II radios, and $4 million from Kuwait for Falcon II radios.

Public Safety and Professional Communications orders included $16 million from a large electric utility company to provide advanced OpenSky® data and voice communications systems, $7 million from channel partner Dailey Wells Communications for a P25 system and radios for Bexar County, Texas, and $4 million from Mobile County, Alabama for a P25 system.

Integrated Network Solutions

Revenue for the Integrated Network Solutions segment was $554 million in the first quarter, an increase of 26 percent compared with $442 million in the prior year. Revenue increased primarily as a result of the April 4, 2011 acquisition of Schlumberger’s Global Connectivity Services business and the July 30, 2010 acquisition of CapRock Communications. Adjusting for the impact of acquisitions, revenue increased 5 percent in the quarter compared with the prior year.

Operating income for the Integrated Network Solutions segment was $9 million in the first quarter compared with $27 million in the prior year. Non-GAAP operating income, excluding acquisition-related costs, was $19 million in the first quarter compared with $29 million in the prior year, decreasing primarily as a result of losses in the company’s new cyber and commercial healthcare initiatives.

New contract awards in the quarter in the Integrated Network Solutions segment included a five-year, $55 million task order under the Enhance the Veteran Experience and Access to HealthCare (EVEAH) blanket purchase agreement to integrate and deploy a Surgical Quality Workflow Management (SQWM) tool to support Veterans Integrated Service Networks and VA Hospitals; a five-year, $37 million task order from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) under the CIO-SP2 contract vehicle to provide clinical data management and quality assurance and control; a five-year, $25 million contract from the Air Force Space Command Space and Missile Systems Center under the U.S. General Services Administration’s Alliant contract vehicle to sustain the ground system for the Defense Meteorological Satellites Program; and a five-year, $9 million contract from Farstad Shipping to deliver turnkey satellite communications to a fleet of 53 offshore supply vessels operating in the North Sea, Brazil, Australia and Indian Pacific regions.

Government Communications Systems

First quarter revenue for the Government Communications Systems segment was $444 million, a 5 percent increase compared with $424 million in the prior year. Operating income was $63 million in the first quarter compared with $45 million in the prior year. Operating margin was a strong 14.2 percent in the quarter driven by excellent program performance and a more favorable mix of products such as commercial satellite reflectors, classified products, and Highband Networking RadiosTM.

Year-over-year revenue increased from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite – Series R (GOES-R) Ground and Antenna Segment weather programs for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Modernization of Enterprise Terminals (MET) program for the U.S. Army, various classified programs, wireless and geospatial products, Highband Networking Radios for the U.S. Army, and commercial satellite reflectors. As expected, revenue declined from two completed programs, the Field Data Collection Automation (FDCA) program for the 2010 U.S. Census and the FAA’s microwave network build-out.

Major awards during the quarter in the Government Communications Systems segment included a ten-year contract, with a potential value of $85 million, from the FAA to upgrade the Alaska Satellite Telecommunications Infrastructure (ASTI) communications network; a five-year, $51 million delivery order for the U.S. Army’s MET program for advanced satellite terminals that provide the worldwide backbone for high-priority military communications; and five large awards from classified customers totaling $125 million.

Earnings Guidance

The company reiterated its previous guidance for non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2012 in the range of $5.10 to $5.30 per diluted share ($4.92 to $5.12 per diluted share on a GAAP basis). Fiscal 2012 non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes acquisition-related costs. Fiscal 2012 revenue is still expected to be in the range of $6.15 to $6.30 billion, which represents a year-over-year increase of about 4 to 6 percent compared with fiscal 2011.
