Woodward Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Results

May, 03, 2021

FORT COLLINS, Colo., May 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWD) today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

All amounts are presented on a U.S. GAAP basis unless otherwise indicated. All per share amounts are presented on a fully diluted basis. All comparisons are made to the same period of the prior year unless otherwise stated. Sequential comparisons are made to the first quarter of 2021.

Second Quarter Overview

  • Net sales were $581 million, compared to $720 million.
  • Net earnings and adjusted net earnings1 were both $68 million, or $1.04 per share. For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, net earnings were $91 million, or $1.41 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $104 million, or $1.61 per share.
  • Sequentially, net sales and net earnings were up 8 percent and 64 percent, respectively.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $219 million for the first half of fiscal 2021, compared to $52 million for the same period of the prior year. Free cash flow1 and adjusted free cash flow1 for the first half of fiscal 2021 were both $206 million. For the first half of fiscal 2020, free cash flow was $23 million and adjusted free cash flow was $55 million.

“Our second quarter continued to show encouraging signs of a market recovery on the horizon with sales and earnings showing sequential improvement. The gradual increase in aircraft build rates and utilization drove improved results in our Aerospace segment, and conditions in many of our Industrial markets are showing signs of improvement. COVID-19 cases remain persistent across the globe, though many countries have begun aggressive rollouts of vaccines in recent weeks, leading to further optimism for the back half of 2021,” said Thomas A. Gendron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“We have demonstrated our resilience throughout this pandemic and are emerging with a stronger balance sheet and robust cash flow. Although uncertainty continues across the industry, we will remain vigilant in this dynamic environment and capitalize on future market opportunities,” concluded Mr. Gendron.

Second Quarter Company Results

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $581 million, compared to $720 million for the second quarter of last year, a decrease of 19 percent.

Net earnings and adjusted net earnings were both $68 million, or $1.04 per share, for the second quarter of 2021. For the second quarter of 2020, net earnings were $91 million, or $1.41 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $104 million, or $1.61 per share.  

EBIT1 and adjusted EBIT1 were both $86 million for the second quarter of 2021. For the second quarter of 2020, EBIT was $115 million and adjusted EBIT was $132 million.

The effective tax rate and the adjusted effective tax rate1 were both 13.0 percent for the second quarter of 2021. For the second quarter of 2020, the effective tax rate was 14.8 percent and the adjusted effective tax rate was 16.2 percent.

Segment Results

Aerospace

Aerospace segment net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $365 million, compared to $474 million for the second quarter a year ago. Sequentially, Aerospace segment net sales for the second quarter of 2021 increased 13 percent.

Aerospace sales for the second quarter remained pressured by the pandemic-induced decline in passenger travel. Both commercial aftermarket and OEM decreased significantly compared to the prior year; however, both showed sequential improvement. While defense sales were down slightly compared to the prior year, our backlog remains healthy.

Segment earnings for the second quarter of 2021 were $69 million, compared to $118 million for the second quarter of last year. Segment earnings as a percent of segment net sales were 18.9 percent for the second quarter of 2021, compared to 24.8 percent in the same quarter of the prior year. The decline in segment earnings was primarily the result of lower volume, including a significant decline in commercial aftermarket, partially offset by cost reduction initiatives.

Industrial

Industrial segment net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $217 million, compared to $246 million for the second quarter a year ago. For the second quarter of 2020, Industrial segment net sales excluding renewable power systems and related businesses1 (“RPS”) were $215 million. RPS was divested on April 30, 2020. Foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable impact on Industrial sales of approximately $10 million for the current year quarter.

Industrial segment net sales excluding RPS for the second quarter of 2021 slightly increased primarily due to strength in China natural gas engines and the favorable foreign currency exchange rates impact, partially offset by weakness in many of our other markets.

Industrial segment earnings for the second quarter of 2021 were $28 million, or 12.9 percent of segment net sales, compared to $26 million, or 10.6 percent of segment net sales, for the prior year quarter. Industrial segment earnings increased primarily as a result of cost reduction initiatives.  

Industrial segment earnings of $28 million for the second quarter of 2021 were up compared to $25 million of Industrial segment earnings excluding RPS1, or 11.6 percent of Industrial segment sales excluding RPS, for the same period last year.

Nonsegment

Nonsegment expenses and adjusted nonsegment expenses1 were both $10 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. For the second quarter of 2020, nonsegment expenses were $28 million and adjusted nonsegment expenses were $11 million.

Year-to-Date Results

Net sales for the first half of 2021 were $1.12 billion, compared to $1.44 billion for the same period last year. Net earnings and adjusted net earnings for the first half of 2021 were both $110 million or $1.68 per share. For the first half of 2020 net earnings were $145 million, or $2.24 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $175 million, or $2.71 per share.

The effective tax rate and the adjusted effective tax rate for the first half of 2021 were both 12.8 percent. For the first half of 2020, the effective tax rate was 14.3 percent and the adjusted effective tax rate was 16.6 percent.

Aerospace segment net sales for the first half of 2021 were $686 million, compared to $948 million for the same period last year. Aerospace segment earnings for the first half of 2021 were $115 million, or 16.8 percent of segment net sales, compared to $211 million, or 22.2 percent of segment net sales, for the same period last year.

Industrial segment net sales for the first half of 2021 were $433 million, compared to $492 million for the same period last year. Industrial segment earnings for the first half of 2021 were $61 million, or 14.0 percent of segment net sales, compared to Industrial segment earnings of $54 million, or 11.0 percent of segment net sales, for the same period last year.

Industrial segment net sales excluding RPS for the first half of 2020 were $432 million. Industrial segment earnings excluding RPS for the first half of 2020 were $51 million, or 11.8 percent of segment net sales excluding RPS.

Nonsegment expenses and adjusted nonsegment expenses were both $34 million for the first half of 2021. For the first half of 2020, nonsegment expenses were $79 million and adjusted nonsegment expenses were $38 million.

Cash Flow and Financial Position

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first half of fiscal year 2021 was $219 million, compared to $52 million for the same period of the prior year. Payments for property, plant, and equipment for the first half of 2021 were $13 million, compared to $29 million for the same period of 2020.

Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow for the first half of 2021 were both $206 million. For the first half of 2020, free cash flow was $23 million and adjusted free cash flow was $55 million. The increase in free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow was primarily related to effective working capital management and lower capital expenditures.

Total debt was $737 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $1.07 billion at March 31, 2020. Debt-to-EBITDA1 leverage at March 31, 2021, was 1.7 times EBITDA, compared to 1.9 times EBITDA at March 31, 2020.

Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook

The ongoing rollout of vaccines across many countries is driving optimism for economic recovery, but the enduring turbulence caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including significantly reduced global passenger travel and new viral variants, continues to cloud near-term forecasts. While we believe many of our markets will improve for the remainder of this year and into 2022, we will continue to withhold guidance as we navigate the uncertain economic landscape.

1Adjusted and Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures: Adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, Industrial segment sales excluding RPS, Industrial segment earnings excluding RPS, and adjusted nonsegment expenses exclude, as applicable, (i) the gain on sale of assets associated with the sale of the Company’s real property, (ii) the charge from the impairment of assets held for sale, (iii) renewable power systems and related businesses sales, (iv) renewable power systems (also referred to as the disposal groups) and related businesses earnings, (v) costs associated with the previously proposed merger with Hexcel Corporation, which merger agreement was terminated on April 5, 2020, and (vii) transaction costs associated with the completed divestiture of our renewable power systems portfolio. Woodward believes that these items are short-term costs/benefits or are otherwise not related to the ongoing operations of the business and therefore, uses them to illustrate more clearly how the underlying business of Woodward is performing. Adjusted free cash flow is free cash flow (defined below) plus the cash proceeds from the sale of real property at our former Duarte operations and cash payments added back for merger and divestiture transaction costs. Management believes these adjustments to free cash flow better portrays Woodward’s operating performance.

EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes), EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow, adjusted net earnings, adjusted net earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, Industrial segment sales excluding RPS, Industrial segment earnings excluding RPS, and adjusted nonsegment expenses are financial measures not prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). Management uses EBIT and adjusted EBIT to evaluate Woodward’s operating performance without the impacts of financing and tax related considerations. Management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in evaluating Woodward’s operating performance, making business decisions, including developing budgets, managing expenditures, forecasting future periods, and evaluating capital structure impacts of various strategic scenarios. Management also uses free cash flow, which is derived from net cash provided by or used in operating activities less payments for property, plant, and equipment, as well as adjusted free cash flow (as described above), in reviewing the financial performance of Woodward’s various business segments and evaluating cash generation levels. Securities analysts, investors, and others frequently use EBIT, EBITDA and free cash flow in their evaluation of companies, particularly those with significant property, plant, and equipment, and intangible assets that are subject to amortization. The use of any of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted EBIT, and adjusted EBITDA exclude certain financial information compared with net earnings, the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, users of this financial information should consider the information that is excluded. Free cash flow does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs. Management’s calculations of EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted nonsegment expenses, free cash flow, and adjusted free cash flow may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
