August, 02, 2021

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWD) today reported financial results for its third 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.

Third Quarter Overview

  • Net sales were $557 million, compared to $524 million.
  • Net earnings and adjusted net earnings1 were both $49 million, or $0.74 per share. For the third quarter of fiscal 2020, net earnings were $38 million, or $0.61 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $31 million, or $0.48 per share.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $318 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to $212 million for the same period of the prior year. Free cash flow1 and adjusted free cash flow1 for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 were both $297 million. For the first nine months of fiscal 2020, free cash flow was $173 million and adjusted free cash flow was $169 million.

“We delivered significantly improved performance in the quarter compared to the prior year period. Global economies are beginning to recover; however, both of our segments were impacted by COVID, supply chain disruptions and regional market volatility,” said Thomas A. Gendron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Woodward continues to generate strong cash flow by leveraging our operational structure and optimizing working capital, which is enabling increased investments in growth opportunities and a return to our pre-COVID capital allocation strategy to drive long-term shareholder value.”

Third Quarter Company Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $557 million, compared to $524 million for the third quarter of last year, an increase of 6 percent. Sales were negatively impacted by approximately $30 million due to global supply chain disruptions, which delayed orders scheduled for third quarter shipment.

Net earnings and adjusted net earnings were both $49 million, or $0.74 per share, for the third quarter of 2021. For the third quarter of 2020, net earnings were $38 million, or $0.61 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $31 million, or $0.48 per share.  

EBIT1 and adjusted EBIT1 were both $67 million for the third quarter of 2021. For the third quarter of 2020, EBIT was $53 million and adjusted EBIT was $52 million.

The effective tax rate and the adjusted effective tax rate1 were both 16.8 percent for the third quarter of 2021. For the third quarter of 2020, the effective tax rate was 14.6 percent and the adjusted effective tax rate was 29.1 percent.

Segment Results

Aerospace

Aerospace segment net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $341 million, compared to $306 million for the third quarter a year ago, an increase of 11 percent.

Commercial OEM and aftermarket both increased due to higher aircraft production rates and recovering domestic passenger traffic compared to a weak third quarter in the prior year. Defense sales were slightly lower than the prior year quarter.

Segment earnings for the third quarter of 2021 were $53 million, compared to $41 million for the third quarter of last year. Segment earnings as a percent of segment net sales were 15.6 percent for the third quarter of 2021, compared to 13.4 percent in the same quarter of the prior year. The increase in segment earnings was primarily the result of higher volume, predominantly in commercial OEM.

Industrial

Industrial segment net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $216 million, compared to $217 million for the third quarter of the prior year. For the third quarter of 2020, Industrial segment net sales excluding renewable power systems and related businesses1 (“RPS”), which was divested on April 30, 2020, were $210 million. For the current year quarter, foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable impact on Industrial sales of approximately $11 million.

Industrial segment net sales excluding RPS for the third quarter of 2021 increased slightly primarily due to the impact of favorable foreign currency exchange rates, partially offset by softness in China natural gas engines and the impact of global supply chain constraints.

Industrial segment earnings for the third quarter of 2021 were $27 million, or 12.6 percent of segment net sales, consistent with the prior year quarter.

Nonsegment

Nonsegment expenses and adjusted nonsegment expenses1 were both $14 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. For the third quarter of 2020, nonsegment expenses were $15 million and adjusted nonsegment expenses were $17 million.

Year-to-Date Results

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 were $1.68 billion, compared to $1.96 billion for the same period last year. Foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable impact on net sales of approximately $32 million for the first nine months of 2021. Net earnings and adjusted net earnings for the first nine months of 2021 were both $159 million, or $2.42 per share. For the first nine months of 2020, net earnings were $183 million, or $2.85 per share, and adjusted net earnings were $206 million, or $3.20 per share.

The effective tax rate and the adjusted effective tax rate for the first nine months of 2021 were both 14.1 percent. For the first nine months of 2020, the effective tax rate was 14.3 percent and the adjusted effective tax rate was 18.7 percent.

Aerospace segment net sales for the first nine months of 2021 were $1.03 billion, compared to $1.25 billion for the same period last year. Aerospace segment earnings for the first nine months of 2021 were $169 million, or 16.4 percent of segment net sales, compared to $252 million, or 20.1 percent of segment net sales, for the same period last year.

Industrial segment net sales for the first nine months of 2021 were $648 million, compared to $710 million for the same period last year. Foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable impact on net sales of approximately $31 million for the first nine months of 2021. Industrial segment earnings for the first nine months of 2021 were $88 million, or 13.6 percent of segment net sales, compared to Industrial segment earnings of $82 million, or 11.5 percent of segment net sales, for the same period last year.

Industrial segment net sales excluding RPS for the first nine months of 2020 were $642 million. Industrial segment earnings excluding RPS for the first nine months of 2020 were $78 million, or 12.2 percent of segment net sales excluding RPS.

Nonsegment expenses and adjusted nonsegment expenses were both $47 million for the first nine months of 2021. For the first nine months of 2020, nonsegment expenses were $94 million and adjusted nonsegment expenses were $57 million.

Cash Flow and Financial Position

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $318 million, compared to $212 million for the same period of the prior year. Payments for property, plant, and equipment for the first nine months of 2021 were $21 million, compared to $39 million for the same period of 2020.

Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow for the first nine months of 2021 were both $297 million. For the first nine months of 2020, free cash flow was $173 million and adjusted free cash flow was $169 million. The increase in free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow was primarily related to effective working capital management and lower capital expenditures, partially offset by lower net earnings.

Total debt was $740 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $929 million at June 30, 2020. Debt-to-EBITDA1 leverage at June 30, 2021, was 1.7 times EBITDA, compared to 1.8 times EBITDA at June 30, 2020.

Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook

While we expect sales, earnings and free cash flow results for the fourth quarter to be higher than the third quarter, considerable uncertainty remains with respect to the COVID-19 variants, global supply chain disruptions, and regional market volatility, all of which are expected to continue. Accordingly, we are not providing more detailed guidance at this time.

RECONCILIATION OF CASH FLOW FROM OPERATING ACTIVITIES TO FREE CASH FLOW 1 AND ADJUSTED FREE CASH FLOW 1  
(Unaudited - in thousands, except per share amounts)  
                 
    Nine-Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2021     2020  
                 
Net cash provided by operating activities (U.S. GAAP)   $ 317,915     $ 212,416  
Payments for property, plant, and equipment     (21,347 )     (39,072 )

Cash paid for merger and divestiture transaction costs     -       17,624  
Cash paid for restructuring charges     -       14,052  
Net cash proceeds from cross-currency interest rate swaps     -       (55,191 )
Adjusted free cash flow (Non-U.S. GAAP)   $ 296,568     $ 168,596  

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 net 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, and the losses from assets sold, associated with the Company’s divestiture of the renewable power systems and related businesses (which we refer to as “RPS” or the disposal group), (iii) restructuring charges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, (iv) RPS and related sales and earnings, (v) costs associated with the previously proposed merger with Hexcel Corporation, which merger agreement was terminated on April 5, 2020, (vi) acceleration of stock compensation expense related to restructuring activities, and (vii) the net gain on settlement of cross-currency interest rate swaps. 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, cash payments added back for merger and divestiture transaction costs, and cash payments made for restructuring charges, less net cash proceeds from cross-currency interest rate swaps. 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.
