Lockheed Martin Reports First Quarter 2017 Results
- Net sales of $11.1 billion
- Net earnings from continuing operations of $763 million, or $2.61 per share
- Generated cash from operations of $1.7 billion
- Returned $1.0 billion to stockholders, inclusive of $500 million in share repurchases

BETHESDA, Md., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) today reported first quarter 2017 net sales of $11.1 billion, compared to $10.4 billion in the first quarter of 2016. Net earnings from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2017 were $763 million, or $2.61 per share, compared to $806 million, or $2.61 per share, in the first quarter of 2016. Cash from operations was $1.7 billion in both the first quarter of 2017 and 2016.

First quarter 2017 net earnings from continuing operations includes a $120 million charge, recorded at Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS), for a loss program to design, integrate, and install an integrated air missile defense C4I system for an international customer and a $64 million charge, which represents the Corporation's portion of a noncash asset impairment charge recorded by an international equity method investee. These charges had the effect of reducing net earnings by $114 million, or $0.39 per share. Net earnings from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 included a special charge of $80 million for workforce reductions at the Corporation's Aeronautics business segment, which decreased net earnings $49 million, or $0.16 per share.

"Our team delivered strong performance for our customers in the first quarter that resulted in sales growth in every business segment," said Chairman, President, and CEO Marillyn Hewson. "While our net earnings were impacted by certain adjustments, we increased our outlook for full year cash from operations by $300 million to at least $6.0 billion and we continue to position the company to deliver outstanding value to customers and shareholders."

1 On Aug. 16, 2016, the Corporation completed the divestiture of its Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) business. Accordingly, the operating results of IS&GS have been classified as discontinued operations in the first quarter of 2016. However, cash from operations in the first quarter of 2016 includes the cash flows generated by IS&GS as the Corporation retained this cash as part of the divestiture. Certain items have been reclassified between Unallocated items in continuing operations and net earnings from discontinued operations as a result of the divestiture of IS&GS. See the "Unallocated items" section of this news release for additional information related to these reclassifications.

 

2 In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation revised its estimated costs to complete a program to design, integrate, and install an air missile defense command, control, communications, computers – intelligence (C4I) systems, EADGE-T, for an international customer. As a result of the change in estimate, the Corporation recorded an additional reserve of $120 million at the RMS business segment. This charge reduced net earnings by $74 million, or $0.25 per share.  

 

3 Severance charges in the first quarter of 2016 consist of amounts associated with the elimination of certain positions at the Aeronautics business segment. These charges reduced net earnings by $49 million, or $0.16 per share.

 

4 In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation recognized a $64 million charge, which represents the Corporation's portion of a noncash asset impairment charge recorded by an international equity method investee, and had the effect of reducing net earnings by $40 million, or $0.14 per share. 

 

5 In the second quarter of 2016, the Corporation adopted a new accounting standard that changed the accounting for certain aspects of employee equity awards, including the classification of tax benefits or expenses upon vesting. As a result, the Corporation has adjusted its results for the first quarter of 2016 to recognize additional income tax benefits of $104 million ($0.34 per share) as an increase to net earnings from continuing operations and cash from operating activities.

 

2017 Financial Outlook

The following table and other sections of this news release contain forward-looking statements, which are based on the Corporation's current expectations.

Cash Deployment Activities

The Corporation's cash deployment activities in the first quarter of 2017 consisted of the following:

  • repurchasing 1.9 million shares for $500 million, compared to 2.4 million shares for $501 million in the first quarter of 2016;
  • paying cash dividends of $544 million, compared to $533 million in the first quarter of 2016; and
  • making capital expenditures of $170 million, compared to $151 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Segment Results

The Corporation operates in four business segments organized based on the nature of products and services offered: Aeronautics, Missiles and Fire Control (MFC), Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) and Space Systems.

During the third quarter of 2016, the Corporation increased its ownership interest in the AWE Management Limited (AWE) venture from 33 percent to 51 percent and began consolidating AWE. Consequently, the Corporation's operating results for the first quarter of 2017 include 100 percent of AWE's sales and 51 percent of AWE's operating profit. Prior to increasing its ownership interest, the Corporation accounted for its investment in AWE using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method of accounting, the Corporation only recognized its share, or 33 percent, of AWE's earnings or losses. Accordingly, the Corporation's operating results for the first quarter of 2016 do not include any sales generated by AWE and only 33 percent of AWE's net earnings. AWE has been aligned under the Corporation's Space Systems business segment.

Operating profit of the business segments includes the Corporation's share of earnings or losses from equity method investees as the operating activities of the equity method investees are closely aligned with the operations of the Corporation's business segments. United Launch Alliance (ULA), which is part of the Space Systems business segment, is the Corporation's primary equity method investee. Operating profit of the Corporation's business segments excludes the FAS/CAS pension adjustment, which represents the difference between total pension expense recorded in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (FAS) and pension costs recoverable on U.S. Government contracts as determined in accordance with U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (CAS); expense for stock-based compensation; the effects of items not considered part of management's evaluation of segment operating performance, such as charges related to significant severance actions and certain asset impairments; gains or losses from divestitures; the effects of certain legal settlements; corporate costs not allocated to the Corporation's business segments; and other miscellaneous corporate activities.

Changes in net sales and operating profit generally are expressed in terms of volume. Changes in volume refer to increases or decreases in sales or operating profit resulting from varying production activity levels, deliveries or service levels on individual contracts. Volume changes in segment operating profit are typically based on the current profit booking rate for a particular contract.

In addition, comparability of the Corporation's segment sales, operating profit and operating margin may be impacted favorably or unfavorably by changes in profit booking rates on the Corporation's contracts accounted for using the percentage-of-completion method of accounting. Increases in the profit booking rates, typically referred to as risk retirements, usually relate to revisions in the estimated total costs that reflect improved conditions on a particular contract. Conversely, conditions on a particular contract may deteriorate resulting in an increase in the estimated total costs to complete and a reduction in the profit booking rate. Increases or decreases in profit booking rates are recognized in the current period and reflect the inception-to-date effect of such changes. Segment operating profit and margin may also be impacted favorably or unfavorably by other items. Favorable items may include the positive resolution of contractual matters, cost recoveries on restructuring charges, insurance recoveries and gains on sales of assets. Unfavorable items may include the adverse resolution of contractual matters; restructuring charges, except for significant severance actions which are excluded from segment operating results; reserves for disputes; certain asset impairments; and losses on sales of assets.

The following table presents summary operating results of the Corporation's business segments and reconciles these amounts to the Corporation's consolidated financial results.

Aeronautics' net sales in the first quarter of 2017 increased $307 million, or 8 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $355 million for the F-35 program due to increased volume on aircraft production and sustainment activities; and about $60 million for the F-16 program due to higher volume on aircraft modernization programs. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of approximately $100 million for the C-5 program due to one less aircraft delivery and lower sustainment activities.

Aeronautics' operating profit in the first quarter of 2017 increased $16 million, or 4 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. Operating profit increased approximately $60 million for the F-35 program due to increased volume on aircraft production and sustainment activities and higher risk retirements. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of about $25 million for various programs due to lower profit booking rate adjustments and establishment of a reserve; and approximately $10 million due to lower equity earnings from investees. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were about $15 million higher in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.

MFC's net sales in the first quarter of 2017 increased $55 million, or 4 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. The increase was attributable to higher net sales of approximately $60 million for air and missile defense programs due to increased deliveries on certain programs (primarily Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC-3)); and about $60 million for fire control programs (primarily LANTIRN® and SNIPER®) due to increased deliveries. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $50 million for tactical missiles programs (primarily Precision Fires) due to fewer deliveries.

MFC's operating profit in the first quarter of 2017 was comparable to profit in the same period of 2016. Operating profit decreased approximately $25 million for tactical missiles programs due to lower risk retirements and fewer deliveries (primarily Precision Fires). This decrease was partially offset by an increase of about $25 million for higher risk retirements and increased deliveries on fire control programs (LANTIRN® and SNIPER®) and air and missile defense programs (PAC-3). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, in the first quarter of 2017 were comparable to the same period in 2016.

RMS' net sales in the first quarter of 2017 increased $97 million, or 3 percent, compared to the same period in 2016.  The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of about $280 million due to certain adjustments recorded in 2016 required to account for the November 6, 2015 acquisition of Sikorsky.  This increase was partially offset by a net decrease of approximately $100 million primarily driven by fewer deliveries of helicopters; and a decrease of about $65 million at C4ISR and Undersea Systems and Sensors (C4USS) programs and training and logistics services programs due to volume.  

RMS' operating profit in the first quarter of 2017 decreased $121 million, or 53 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. Operating profit decreased about $110 million for C4USS programs due to a $120 million charge for performance matters on the international contract, EADGE-T; and about $25 million for training and logistics services programs due to lower risk retirements. These decreases were partially offset by an increase of about $35 million for Sikorsky due to certain adjustments recorded in the first quarter of 2017 and 2016 required to account for the November 6, 2015 acquisition of Sikorsky and amortization of intangible assets, partially offset by a decrease of about $20 million primarily driven by fewer deliveries of helicopters and lower equity earnings from investees. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were about $115 million lower in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.

Space Systems' net sales in the first quarter of 2017 increased $230 million, or 11 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. The increase was attributable to approximately $325 million due to net sales from AWE, which the Corporation began consolidating in the third quarter of 2016. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of $35 million for the Orion program due to lower volume; and a decrease of $25 million for government satellite programs (primarily Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) and Mobile User Objective System (MUOS)) due to decreased volume.

Space Systems' operating profit in the first quarter of 2017 increased $44 million, or 18 percent, compared to the same period in 2016. Operating profit increased about $40 million due to increased equity earnings from an investee (ULA). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were about $25 million higher in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.

Total equity earnings recognized by Space Systems (primarily ULA) represented about $80 million, or 28 percent, of this business segment's operating profit in the first quarter of 2017, compared to approximately $50 million, or 20 percent, in the first quarter of 2016.

Consistent with the manner in which the Corporation's business segment operating performance is evaluated by senior management, certain items are excluded from the business segment results and are included in "Unallocated items." For a description of the items excluded from business segment results, refer to the "Segment Results" section in this news release.

On Aug. 16, 2016, the Corporation completed the divestiture of its former IS&GS business. Accordingly, the operating results of IS&GS have been classified as discontinued operations in the first quarter of 2016. General corporate overhead costs that were historically allocated to and included in the operating results of IS&GS in the first quarter of 2016 have been reclassified into "Unallocated items" and included in the results of the Corporation's continuing operations because they were not directly attributable to IS&GS and the Corporation continues to incur these costs subsequent to the divestiture.

The amount of general corporate overhead costs previously included in the operating results of IS&GS that have been reclassified to and included in the results of the Corporation's continuing operations were $35 million in the first quarter of 2016. These costs are included in the "Other, net" line.

Additionally, the Corporation retained all assets and obligations related to the pension benefits earned by former IS&GS salaried employees through the date of divestiture. Therefore, the non-service portion of net pension costs (interest cost, actuarial gains and losses and expected return on plan assets) for these plans in the first quarter of 2016 have been reclassified to and included in the results of the Corporation's continuing operations because the Corporation continues to incur these costs. The non-service portion of net pension costs previously included in the operating results of IS&GS that have been reclassified to and included in the results of the Corporation's continuing operations were $22 million in the first quarter of 2016. These costs are included in the "FAS/CAS pension adjustment" line.

In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation recognized a $64 million charge, which represents the Corporation's portion of a noncash asset impairment charge recorded by an international equity method investee, which had the effect of reducing net earnings by $40 million, or $0.14 per share. This charge is included in the "Other, net" line.

Income Taxes

The Corporation's effective income tax rate from continuing operations was 23.3 percent in the first quarter of 2017, compared to 18.9 percent in the first quarter of 2016. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for U.S. manufacturing activities, dividends paid to the Corporation's defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature, tax benefits for employee equity awards, and the research and development tax credit. For the first quarter of 2017 and 2016 the tax benefits of employee equity awards reduced our effective tax rate by 6.2 and 10.4 percentage points, respectively.

The Corporation closes its books and records on the last Sunday of the calendar quarter to align its financial closing with

    its business processes, which was on March 26 for the first quarter of 2017 and March 27 for the first quarter of 2016.

    The consolidated financial statements and tables of financial information included herein are labeled based on that

    convention. This practice only affects interim periods, as the Corporation's fiscal year ends on Dec. 31.

           

On Aug. 16, 2016, the Corporation completed the divestiture of its Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) business. 

    Accordingly, the operating results of IS&GS have been classified as discontinued operations in the first quarter of 2016. 

           

In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation revised its estimated costs to complete a program to design, integrate, and 

    install an air missile defense command, control, communications, computers – intelligence (C4I) system, EADGE-T, 

    for an international customer. As a result of the change in estimate, the Corporation recorded an additional reserve of 

    $120 million at the RMS business segment. This charge reduced net earnings by $74 million, or $0.25 per share.

           

In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation recognized a $64 million charge related to the Corporation's portion of a 

    noncash asset impairment charge recorded by an international equity method investee, which had the effect of reducing 

    net earnings by $40 million, or $0.14 per share.

           

Severance charges in the first quarter of 2016 consist of amounts associated with the elimination of certain positions at the 

    Aeronautics business segment. These charges reduced net earnings by $49 million, or $0.16 per share. 

           

6  In the second quarter of 2016, the Corporation adopted a new accounting standard that changed the accounting for

    certain aspects of employee equity awards, including the classification of certain tax benefits or expenses upon vesting. 

    As a result, the Corporation has adjusted its results for the first quarter of 2016 to recognize additional income tax benefits 

    of $104 million ($0.34 per share) as an increase to net earnings from continuing operations and cash from operating activities.

In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation revised its estimated costs to complete a program to design, 

    integrate and install an air missile defense command, control, communications, computers – intelligence  

    (C4I) system, EADGE-T, for an international customer. As a result of the change in estimate, the

2  Severance charges in the first quarter of 2016 consist of amounts associated with the elimination of 

    certain positions at the Aeronautics business segment. These charges reduced net earnings by 

    $49 million, or $0.16 per share. 

                 

As a result of the Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) divestiture in Aug. 2016, the 

   Corporation reclassified $35 million of general corporate overhead costs incurred in the first quarter of 

   2016 and previously allocated to the IS&GS business segment. These costs were not reported as 

   discontinued operations because they were not directly attributable to the IS&GS business and will 

   continue to be incurred by the Corporation.

                 

In the first quarter of 2017, the Corporation recognized a $64 million charge related to the Corporation's

   portion of a noncash asset impairment charge recorded by an international equity method investee,

   which had the effect of reducing net earnings by $40 million, or $0.14 per share.
