For additional detail on the corporation's FAS/CAS pension adjustment see the supplemental table included on page 19 of this news release.
Cash Deployment Activities
The corporation's cash deployment activities in the second quarter of 2018 consisted of the following:
The corporation operates in four business segments organized based on the nature of products and services offered: Aeronautics, Missiles and Fire Control (MFC), RMS and Space. The following table presents summary operating results of the corporation's business segments and reconciles these amounts to the corporation's consolidated financial results.
Missiles and Fire Control
Rotary and Mission Systems
Total net sales
Total business segment operating profit
Special item - severance and restructuring
Total consolidated operating profit
Net sales of the business segments exclude intersegment sales as these activities are eliminated in consolidation. 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. In addition, operating profit of the corporation's business segments includes total pension costs recoverable on U.S. Government contracts as determined in accordance with CAS.
Operating profit of the business segments excludes the FAS/CAS operating adjustment, which represents the difference between the service cost component of pension expense recorded in accordance with FAS and CAS pension cost; the FAS non-service cost component for all postretirement benefit plans, which is recorded in other non-operating expense, net; 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 significant 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 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 for which it recognizes revenue over a period of time using the percentage-of-completion cost-to-cost method to measure progress towards completion. Increases in the profit booking rates, typically referred to as risk retirements, usually relate to revisions in the estimated total costs to fulfill the performance obligations 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 fulfill the performance obligations 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, which may or may not impact sales. Favorable items may include the positive resolution of contractual matters, cost recoveries on severance and 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 certain assets.
The corporation's consolidated net adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, represented approximately 32 percent of total segment operating profit in the second quarter of 2018, compared to approximately 38 percent in the second quarter of 2017.
Aeronautics' net sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased $399 million, or 8 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $370 million for the F-35 program due to increased production volume, partially offset by lower volume on development activities; and about $50 million for the F-22 program due to increased sustainment volume. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of approximately $70 million for the C-5 program due to lower production volume as the current modernization program nears completion.
Aeronautics' operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 increased $5 million, or 1 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. Operating profit increased approximately $65 million for the F-35 program primarily due to increased volume on higher margin production contracts and new development activities, and better performance on sustainment. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of approximately $40 million for the C-5 program due to lower risk retirements and lower production volume; and about $20 million for the C-130 program due to lower volume and timing on sustainment programs. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $50 million lower in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.
MFC's net sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased $301 million, or 17 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $95 million for increased volume on classified programs; about $80 million for air and missile defense programs due to increased volume (primarily Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3)); about $70 million for sensors and global sustainment programs due to increased volume (primarily LANTIRN® and SNIPER®); and about $45 million for tactical missiles programs due to increased volume (primarily Precision Fires).
MFC's operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 increased $26 million, or 10 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. Operating profit increased approximately $35 million for sensors and global sustainment programs due to increased risk retirements and higher volume (primarily LANTIRN® and SNIPER®); and about $35 million for air and missile defense programs due to increased risk retirements and higher volume (primarily THAAD and PAC-3). These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $50 million for tactical missile programs primarily due to a charge recorded in the second quarter of 2018 of approximately $65 million for performance matters on the Warrior Capability Sustainment Program, which relates to designing, developing and installing an upgraded turret. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were comparable in the second quarter of 2018 to the same period in 2017.
RMS' net sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased $152 million, or 4 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $180 million for integrated warfare systems and sensors (IWSS) programs due to higher volume (primarily radar surveillance systems programs and Aegis); and about $105 million for C6ISR (command, control, communications, computers, cyber, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) programs due to higher volume on various programs. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in net sales of approximately $105 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs. Sikorsky helicopter sales reflect lower volume for Black Hawk helicopters, partially offset by higher volume for CH-53K King Stallion helicopters.
RMS' operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 increased $70 million, or 26 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. Operating profit increased approximately $40 million for IWSS programs due to increased risk retirements and higher volume (primarily radar surveillance systems programs and Aegis); and about $30 million for C6ISR programs due to favorable cost performance and higher volume on various programs. Operating profit increased about $10 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to favorable cost performance across the Sikorsky portfolio and better performance on the Multi-Year IX contract, which more than offset lower volume on the Multi-Year VIII contract. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were about $20 million lower in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.
Space's net sales in the second quarter of 2018 decreased $17 million, or 1 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of approximately $60 million for government satellite programs due to lower volume (primarily Advanced Extremely High Frequency systems (AEHF)); and about $20 million for commercial satellite programs due to lower volume. These decreases were partially offset by an increase of approximately $65 million for strategic and missile defense programs due to higher volume (primarily AWE Management Limited (AWE)).
Space's operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 increased $18 million, or 7 percent, compared to the same period in 2017. Operating profit increased approximately $25 million for strategic and missile defense programs due to increased risk retirements (primarily Fleet Ballistic Missiles); and about $25 million for commercial satellite programs, which reflect a lower amount of charges recorded for performance matters on certain programs. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of approximately $30 million for government satellite programs due to lower risk retirements and lower volume (primarily AEHF). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were about $15 million higher in the second quarter of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017.
Total equity earnings recognized by Space (primarily ULA) represented approximately $50 million, or 18 percent, of Space's operating profit in the second quarter of 2018, compared to approximately $45 million, or 18 percent, in the second quarter of 2017.
The corporation's effective income tax rate was 18.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018, compared to 28.8 percent in the second quarter of 2017. The lower rate for the second quarter of 2018 is primarily due to the reduction of the federal statutory rate from 35% to 21% as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Act) enacted in December 2017. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for dividends paid to the corporation's defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature, tax deductions for employee equity awards, and the research and development tax credit. The rate for the second quarter of 2018 benefited from the Tax Act's deduction for foreign derived intangible income. The rate for the second quarter of 2017 also benefited from tax deductions for U.S. manufacturing activities, which the Tax Act repealed for years after 2017.
