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 29 for the first quarter of 2020 and

March 31 for the first quarter of 2019. 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.

 

2

Business segment operating profit is a non-GAAP measure. See the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"

section of this news release for more information.

 

3

In the first quarter of 2019, the corporation recognized a previously deferred non-cash gain of $51 million

($38 million, or $0.13 per share, after tax) related to properties sold in 2015 as a result of completing its

remaining obligations.

 

4

Net earnings in the first quarter of 2019 include benefits of $75 million, or $0.26 per share, from additional

tax deductions, based on proposed tax regulations released on March 4, 2019, which clarified that foreign

military sales qualify as foreign derived intangible income. Approximately $65 million, or $0.23 per share,

of the total benefit was recorded discretely because it relates to 2018.

 
     

 

2020 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. Actual results may differ materially from those projected. It is the corporation's typical practice not to incorporate adjustments into its financial outlook for proposed acquisitions, divestitures, ventures, changes in law, or new accounting standards until such items have been consummated, enacted or adopted. For additional factors that may impact the corporation's actual results, refer to the "Forward-Looking Statements" section in this news release.

The corporation's 2020 financial outlook includes updated guidance for net sales reflecting the currently

expected impacts related to COVID-19. The ultimate impact of COVID-19 on the corporation's financial

outlook for 2020 remains uncertain. Additionally, the corporation's financial outlook for 2020 does not

include any non-cash impairment charge related to its equity method investment in AMMROC as

discussed below or potential impacts to the corporation's programs, including the F-35 program, resulting

from U.S. Government actions related to Turkey. Currently, the corporation does not expect U.S.

Government actions related to Turkey will have a material impact on its 2020 financial results.

 

2

The net FAS/CAS pension adjustment above is presented as a single amount and includes total expected

2020 U.S. Government cost accounting standards (CAS) pension cost of approximately $1,975 million and

total expected financial accounting standards (FAS) pension income of approximately $115 million. CAS

pension cost and the service cost component of FAS pension expense are included in operating profit.

The non-service cost components of FAS pension expense are included in non-operating income

(expense). For additional detail on the corporation's FAS/CAS pension adjustment, see the supplemental

table included at the end of this news release.

 

3

Although the corporation typically does not update its outlook for proposed changes in law, the above

includes the effect of proposed tax regulations confirming that foreign military sales (FMS) qualify for tax

deductions for foreign derived intangible income. The corporation believes incorporating the effect of the

proposed regulations yields more accurate disclosure of the company's expectations because the

proposed regulations describe the tax treatment of FMS sales in accordance with the corporation's

analysis of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

 

COVID-19

The global outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and a national emergency by the U.S. Government in March 2020 and has negatively affected the U.S. and global economy, disrupted global supply chains, resulted in significant travel and transport restrictions, including mandated closures and orders to "shelter-in-place," and created significant disruption of the financial markets. Lockheed Martin has taken measures to protect the health and safety of its employees, work with its customers to minimize potential disruptions and support its community in addressing the challenges posed by this global pandemic. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the corporation's operational and financial performance, including its ability to execute its programs in the expected timeframe, will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the pandemic and related actions taken by the U.S. Government, state and local government officials, and international governments to prevent disease spread, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. The outbreak did not have a material impact on the corporation's operating results or business in the first quarter of 2020. However, the corporation is beginning to experience some issues in each of its business areas related to COVID-19, primarily in access to some locations and delays of supplier deliveries. The corporation is updating its 2020 guidance for net sales to reflect these impacts, as production and supply chain activities have recently slowed in the Aeronautics business area. However, the ultimate impact of COVID-19 on the corporation's 2020 outlook for sales, segment operating profit, earnings and cash flows from operations remains uncertain. The corporation's 2020 outlook assumes, among other things, that its production facilities continue to operate and it does not experience significant work stoppages or closures, it is able to mitigate any supply chain disruptions and these do not worsen, and it is able to recover its costs under contracts and government funding priorities do not change. In addition, the corporation's financial performance assumes actual returns on its pension assets during 2020 will be 7.0%, and the discount rate used to re-measure its pension liabilities at year-end 2020 will be 3.25%.  Differences between these assumed values and actual values will affect the corporation's plan funded status and stockholders' equity as measured at year-end 2020. The corporation is also monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on the fair value of its assets. While the corporation does not currently anticipate any material impairments on its assets as a result of COVID-19, future changes in expectations for sales, earnings and cash flows related to intangible assets and goodwill below its current projections could cause these assets to be impaired. While these are the corporation's current assumptions, this is an emerging situation and these could change, including if the duration of the pandemic is extended, which could affect outlook.

Investment in Advanced Military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Center LLC (AMMROC)

As of March 29, 2020, the corporation had an investment in the AMMROC joint venture with a carrying value of $435 million. Substantially all of AMMROC's current business is dependent on a single customer contract to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for fixed and rotary wing military aircraft that was up for re-competition. In April 2020, subsequent to the end of the corporation's first quarter, the customer announced its intent to award the contract to a competitor. The corporation is working with AMMROC's management and its joint venture partner to understand its options, including whether there is a basis to challenge the award and retain the MRO services, explore the possibility of AMMROC continuing to provide MRO services as a subcontractor to the competitor, an opportunity to replace the contract with other customer arrangements, or winding down the business. At this time, the corporation cannot determine the extent of the non-cash impairment charge, if any, related to its investment. However, if the customer moves forward with transitioning the MRO services to the competitor and AMMROC is not a subcontractor (or has only a limited role), the corporation expects there would be an adverse impact to AMMROC's business and the carrying value of its investment, which could be significant and an impairment could occur as early as the second quarter of 2020. Other than the impact to earnings for a potential non-cash impairment charge, currently the corporation does not expect any other significant impacts to its 2020 operating results, financial position or cash flows.

Cash Activities

The corporation's cash activities in the first quarter of 2020 included the following:

  • paying cash dividends of $693 million, compared to $638 million in the first quarter of 2019;
  • repurchasing 1.7 million shares for $756 million, which includes $500 million paid pursuant to an accelerated share repurchase agreement (ASR), which will settle in the second quarter; compared to 1.0 million shares for $281 million in the first quarter of 2019. The actual number of shares delivered under the ASR is based on an average volume-weighted average price (VWAP) over the plan period and, based on the average VWAP as of April 20, 2020, the corporation expects to receive approximately 0.5 million additional shares upon final settlement;
  • making capital expenditures of $293 million, compared to $284 million in the first quarter of 2019; and
  • no net proceeds from or repayments of commercial paper, compared to making net repayments of $200 million in the first quarter of 2019.

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

Net sales and operating profit of the corporation's business segments exclude intersegment sales, cost of sales, and profit as these activities are eliminated in consolidation. Operating profit of the corporation's business segments includes the corporation's share of earnings or losses from equity method investees as the operating activities of the investees are closely aligned with the operations of its business segments.

Operating profit of the corporation's business segments also excludes the FAS/CAS operating adjustment described below, a portion of corporate costs not considered allowable or allocable to contracts with the U.S. Government under the applicable U.S. Government cost accounting standards (CAS) or federal acquisition regulations (FAR), and other items not considered part of management's evaluation of segment operating performance such as a portion of management and administration costs, legal fees and settlements, environmental costs, stock-based compensation expense, retiree benefits, significant severance actions, significant asset impairments, gains or losses from significant divestitures, and other miscellaneous corporate activities.

The corporation recovers CAS pension cost through the pricing of its products and services on U.S. Government contracts and, therefore, recognizes CAS pension cost in each of its business segments' net sales and cost of sales. The corporation's consolidated financial statements must present pension and other postretirement benefit plan expense calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (referred to as FAS expense). The operating portion of the net FAS/CAS pension adjustment represents the difference between the service cost component of FAS pension expense and CAS pension cost. The non-service FAS pension expense component is included in other non‑operating expense on the corporation's consolidated statements of earnings. The net FAS/CAS pension adjustment increases or decreases CAS pension cost to equal total FAS pension expense (both service and non-service).

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 for which it recognizes revenue over time using the percentage-of-completion cost-to-cost method to measure progress towards completion. Increases in 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, 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 27 percent of total segment operating profit in the first quarter of 2020 as compared to 33 percent in the first quarter of 2019.

Aeronautics' net sales in the first quarter of 2020 increased $785 million, or 14 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $695 million for the F-35 program due to increased volume on production, sustainment, and development contracts; and about $70 million for higher volume on classified development contracts.

Aeronautics' operating profit in the first quarter of 2020 increased $87 million, or 15 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. Operating profit increased approximately $80 million for the F-35 program due to higher volume on production, sustainment, and development contracts. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, in the first quarter of 2020 were comparable to the same period in 2019.

MFC's net sales in the first quarter of 2020 increased $269 million, or 11 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $175 million for tactical and strike missile programs due to increased volume (primarily High-Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS) and hypersonic development programs); and about $125 million for integrated air and missile defense programs due to increased volume (primarily Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3)). These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $40 million as a result of lower volume on energy programs and the divestiture of the Distributed Energy Solutions business in November 2019.

MFC's operating profit in the first quarter of 2020 decreased $21 million, or 5 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. Operating profit decreased approximately $55 million for integrated air and missile defense programs due to lower risk retirements on international contracts (primarily PAC-3 and THAAD). This decrease was partially offset by an increase of $20 million for sensors and global sustainment programs due to higher risk retirements (primarily Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN®) and Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (SNIPER®)). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $30 million lower in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.

RMS' net sales in the first quarter of 2020 were comparable to the same period in 2019. Net sales decreased approximately $95 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to lower volume (primarily combat rescue helicopter and Black Hawk production programs). This decrease was mostly offset by an increase of about $85 million for C6ISR (command, control, communications, computers, cyber, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) programs due to higher volume (primarily undersea combat systems programs).

RMS' operating profit in the first quarter of 2020 was comparable to the same period in 2019. Operating profit increased approximately $20 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to better cost performance and higher risk retirements on international military aircraft programs. This increase was offset by a $20 million decrease for integrated warfare systems and sensors (IWSS) programs as lower risk retirements were partially offset by charges that were $30 million lower on a ground-based radar program. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $35 million lower in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.

Space's net sales in the first quarter of 2020 increased $277 million, or 10 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $180 million for strategic and missile defense programs due to higher volume (primarily hypersonic development programs and fleet ballistic missile programs); and about $100 million for government satellite programs due to higher volume (primarily Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared (Next Gen OPIR)).

Space's operating profit in the first quarter of 2020 decreased $53 million, or 16 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. Operating profit decreased approximately $40 million for government satellite programs due to lower risk retirements (primarily Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF)); and about $35 million due to lower equity earnings from the corporation's investment in United Launch Alliance (ULA). These decreases were partially offset by an increase of $20 million for commercial satellite programs for charges recorded for performance matters in 2019 not repeated in 2020. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $40 million lower in the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019.

Total equity earnings recognized by Space from equity method investments (primarily ULA) represented approximately $30 million, or 11 percent of Space's operating profit in the first quarter of 2020, compared to approximately $65 million, or 19 percent in the first quarter of 2019.

Income Taxes

The corporation's effective income tax rate was 15.4 percent in the first quarter of 2020, compared to 12.4 percent in the first quarter of 2019. The rate for the first quarter of 2019 benefited from additional tax deductions of $65 million, or $0.23 per share, recorded discretely for 2018, based on proposed tax regulations released on March 4, 2019, which clarified that foreign military sales qualify for foreign derived intangible income treatment. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for employee equity awards, the research and development tax credit, tax deductions for foreign derived intangible income, and dividends paid to the corporation's defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains the following non-generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP) financial measures (as defined by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulation G). While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in evaluating the financial performance of the corporation, this information should be considered supplemental and is not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the corporation's definitions for non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies or analysts.

Business segment operating profit represents operating profit from the corporation's business segments before unallocated income and expense. This measure is used by the corporation's senior management in evaluating the performance of its business segments and is a performance goal in the corporation's annual incentive plan. Business segment operating margin is calculated by dividing business segment operating profit by sales. The table below reconciles the non-GAAP measure business segment operating profit with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, consolidated operating profit.

The corporation's 2020 financial outlook includes updated guidance for net sales reflecting the currently

expected impacts related to COVID-19. The ultimate impact of COVID-19 on the corporation's financial

outlook for 2020 remains uncertain. Additionally, the corporation's financial outlook for 2020 does not

include any non-cash impairment charge related to its equity method investment in AMMROC or potential

impacts to the corporation's programs, including the F-35 program, resulting from U.S. Government

actions related to Turkey. Currently, the corporation does not expect U.S. Government actions related to

Turkey will have a material impact on its 2020 financial results.

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 29 for the first quarter of 2020 and March 31 for the

first quarter of 2019. 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.

2

In the first quarter of 2019, the corporation recognized a previously deferred non-cash gain of $51 million ($38

million, or $0.13 per share, after tax) related to properties sold in 2015 as a result of completing its remaining

obligations.

3

Net earnings in the first quarter of 2019 include benefits of $75 million, or $0.26 per share, from additional tax

deductions, based on proposed tax regulations released on March 4, 2019, which clarified that foreign military

sales qualify as foreign derived intangible income. Approximately $65 million, or $0.23 per share, of the total

benefit was recorded discretely because it relates to 2018.

The corporation projects FAS pension income in 2020, compared to FAS pension expense in 2019, as a result

of completing the planned freeze of its salaried pension plans effective Jan. 1, 2020 that was previously

announced on July 1, 2014. The corporation's FAS pension expense is comprised of service cost, interest

cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of prior service credit, and amortization of actuarial losses.

The service cost and amortization of actuarial losses components of FAS pension expense are significantly

lower due to the freeze. As a result, the expected return on plan assets and amortization of prior service credit

exceed all other FAS pension expense components in 2020. For additional information regarding the

corporation's FAS pension expense or income and CAS pension cost, see the corporation's Annual Report on

Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2019.

2

The corporation records the non-service cost components of net periodic benefit cost as part of other non-

operating income (expense) in the consolidated statement of earnings. The non-service cost components in

the table above relate only to the corporation's qualified defined benefit pension plans. The corporation

expects total non-service income (cost) for its qualified defined benefit pension plans in the table above, along

with non-service cost for its other postretirement benefit plans of $30 million, to total non-service credit of $185

million for 2020. The corporation recorded non-service cost for its other postretirement benefit plans of $116

million in 2019, in addition to its total non-service cost for its qualified defined benefit pension plans in the

table above, for a total of $693 million in 2019.
