- Increases 2021 financial outlook for earnings per share

BETHESDA, Md., July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin Corporation [NYSE: LMT] today reported second quarter 2021 net sales of $17.0 billion, compared to $16.2 billion in the second quarter of 2020. Net earnings in the second quarter of 2021 were $1.8 billion, or $6.52 per share, compared to $1.6 billion, or $5.79 per share, in the second quarter of 2020. Second quarter 2021 net earnings include a loss of $225 million ($169 million, or $0.61 per share, after tax), recorded at Aeronautics, related to performance issues experienced on a classified program. Net earnings for the second quarter 2020 include a noncash impairment charge of $128 million ($96 million, or $0.34 per share, after tax) for an investment in a joint venture that the company sold. Cash from operations in the second quarter of 2021 was $1.3 billion, compared to $2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2020.

"In my first year leading our company, I'm proud of the extraordinary resolve demonstrated by our 114,000 team members to rise above the challenges of the pandemic in support of our customers, our nation and our allies. This is reflected in our solid sales growth across each business area this quarter," said Lockheed Martin Chairman, President and CEO James Taiclet. "Our teams continue to deliver on key platform programs while also advancing technologies critical for 21st century deterrence and scientific discovery. And as a result, we are maintaining our prior guidance for full-year sales, segment operating profit, and cash from operations, while raising guidance for full-year EPS."

Business segment operating profit is a non-GAAP measure. See the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of this news release for more
information.

 

3

The company has experienced performance issues on a classified program at its Aeronautics business segment. During the second quarter of
2021, the company completed a comprehensive review of the program and determined that estimated total costs to complete the program are
expected to exceed the contract price. As a result, the company recorded a loss of $225 million ($169 million, or $0.61 per share, after tax) at its
Aeronautics business segment.

 

4

In the second quarter of 2020, the company recognized a noncash impairment charge of $128 million ($96 million, or $0.34 per share, after
tax) for its investment in the international equity method investee, Advanced Military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Center (AMMROC),
which the company sold.

 

5

Cash from operations in the second quarter of 2021 reflects federal income tax payments of $640 million and cash payments for the employer
portion of payroll taxes of $182 million, compared to no payments in the second quarter of 2020 due to the deferral of $400 million of federal tax
payments from the second quarter of 2020 to the third quarter of 2020 pursuant to IRS guidance and $160 million for the employer portion of
payroll taxes from the second quarter of 2020 to fourth quarters of 2021 and 2022 pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic
Security Act

The company's 2021 financial outlook reflects the anticipated impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic based on the company's understanding at
the time of this news release. However, the ultimate impacts of COVID-19 on the company's financial outlook for 2021 and beyond remains
uncertain and there can be no assurance that the company's underlying assumptions are correct. Additionally, the 2021 financial outlook reflects
the UK Ministry of Defence's renationalization of the Atomic Weapons Establishment program on June 30, 2021. The 2021 financial outlook also
reflects the impact of the unrealized and realized gains from investments held by the Lockheed Martin Ventures Fund year to date, but does not
include any future gains or losses related to market volatility and changes in valuations of the company's investment holdings. Further, the 2021
financial outlook does not incorporate the pending acquisition of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. previously announced on Dec. 20, 2020.

Net sales and operating profit of the company's business segments exclude intersegment sales, cost of sales, and profit as these activities are eliminated in consolidation. Operating profit of the company's business segments includes the company'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 company's business segments also excludes the FAS/CAS pension 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 divestitures, and other miscellaneous corporate activities.

The company 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 company's consolidated financial statements must present pension and other postretirement benefit plan income calculated in accordance with FAS requirements under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The operating portion of the net FAS/CAS pension adjustment represents the difference between the service cost component of FAS pension income and total CAS pension cost. The non-service FAS pension income component is included in other non-operating income. The net FAS/CAS pension adjustment increases or decreases CAS pension cost to equal total FAS pension income (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 company's segment sales, operating profit and operating margin may be impacted favorably or unfavorably by changes in profit booking rates on the company'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, 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 company's consolidated net adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, represented approximately 22% of total segment operating profit in the second quarter of 2021, as compared to 27% in the second quarter of 2020.

Aeronautics' net sales during the second quarter of 2021 increased $163 million, or 3%, compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to about $100 million for the F-16 program due to increased production volume that was partially offset by decreased sustainment volume; and about $90 million for the F-35 program due to increased production and sustainment volume that was partially offset by decreased development activities. These increases were partially offset by lower net sales of approximately $60 million for the F-22 program due to decreased sustainment volume.

Aeronautics' operating profit during the second quarter of 2021 decreased $167 million, or 23%, compared to the same period in 2020. Operating profit decreased due to a loss of approximately $225 million in the second quarter of 2021 for performance issues experienced on a classified program; and about $20 million for the F-22 program due to lower risk retirements and sustainment volume. These decreases were partially offset by higher operating profit of approximately $45 million for the C-130 program primarily due to higher risk retirements on sustainment activities; and about $20 million for the F-16 program due to increased production volume and higher risk retirements. Operating profit for the F-35 program was comparable as higher production and sustainment volume was offset by lower risk retirements. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $180 million lower in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.

MFC's net sales during the second quarter of 2021 increased $143 million, or 5%, compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $110 million for tactical and strike missile programs due to higher production volume (Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM)); and about $35 million for sensors and global sustainment programs due to higher service volume (primarily Special Operations Forces Global Logistics Support Services (SOF GLSS)) and close out activities related to the Warrior Capability Sustainment Program (Warrior) that was terminated by the customer in March 2021.

MFC's operating profit during the second quarter of 2021 increased $31 million, or 8%, compared to the same period in 2020. Operating profit increased approximately $45 million for sensors and global sustainment programs primarily due to the reversal of the portion of previously recorded losses on the Warrior program in the second quarter of 2021 that are no longer expected to be incurred as a result of the program being terminated. This increase was partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $15 million on integrated air and missile defense programs due to lower risk retirements (primarily Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD)). Operating profit for tactical and strike missile programs was comparable as higher production volume (ATACMS and LRASM) was offset by lower volume on the Long Range Stand-Off program. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $25 million higher in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.

RMS' net sales during the second quarter of 2021 increased $203 million, or 5%, compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was attributable to higher net sales of approximately $230 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to higher production volume on the Black Hawk, Combat Rescue Helicopter (CRH), and CH-53K programs that was partially offset by lower production volume on Seahawk programs. This increase was partially offset by lower net sales of about $35 million for integrated warfare systems and sensors (IWSS) programs due to lower volume on the TPQ-53 and the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) programs that was partially offset by higher volume on the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) and Aegis Combat System (Aegis) programs.

RMS' operating profit during the second quarter of 2021 increased $29 million, or 7%, compared to the same period in 2020. Operating profit increased approximately $20 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to higher production volume on the Black Hawk, CRH, and CH-53K programs. Operating profit for IWSS programs was comparable as risk retirements on a ground-based radar program were offset by lower risk retirements on the LCS program. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were comparable in the second quarter of 2021 to the same period in 2020.

Space's net sales during the second quarter of 2021 increased $300 million, or 10%, compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $125 million for the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) program due to higher volume; about $100 million for national security space programs due to higher volume (primarily Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared (Next Gen OPIR)); and about $80 million for strategic and missile defense programs due to higher volume (primarily hypersonic development programs). As previously disclosed, effective June 30, 2021 (subsequent to the second quarter), the UK Ministry of Defence renationalized the AWE program. Accordingly, the AWE program will no longer be included in the company's financial results beginning in the third quarter of 2021.

Space's operating profit during the second quarter of 2021 increased $83 million, or 33%, compared to the same period in 2020. Operating profit increased approximately $45 million for national security space programs primarily due to higher risk retirements (primarily Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS)) and higher volume (primarily Next Gen OPIR); and about $35 million due to higher equity earnings from the company's investment in United Launch Alliance (ULA). Operating profit for the AWE program was comparable as higher volume was offset by accelerated and incremental amortization expense for intangible assets. Operating profit for strategic and missile defense programs was also comparable as higher volume (hypersonic development programs) was offset by lower risk retirements (primarily Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) programs). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were $65 million higher in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.

Total equity earnings (primarily ULA) recognized in Space's operating profit were approximately $45 million, or 13% of Space's operating profit during the second quarter of 2021, compared to approximately $10 million, or 4% in the second quarter of 2020.

Income Taxes

The company's effective income tax rate was 16.4% for the second quarter of 2021 and 17.1% for the second quarter of 2020. The rate for the second quarter of 2021 is lower primarily due to increased tax deductions for foreign derived intangible income. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for foreign derived intangible income, the research and development tax credit, and dividends paid to the company'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 company, this information should be considered supplemental and is not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company'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 company's business segments before unallocated income and expense. This measure is used by the company's senior management in evaluating the performance of its business segments and is a performance goal in the company'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.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements that, to the extent they are not recitations of historical fact, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, and are based on Lockheed Martin's current expectations and assumptions. The words "believe," "estimate," "anticipate," "project," "intend," "expect," "plan," "outlook," "scheduled," "forecast" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially due to factors such as:

  • the impact of COVID-19 or future epidemics on the company's business, including potential supply chain disruptions, facility closures, work stoppages, program delays, payment policies and regulations and the company's ability to recover its costs under contracts;
  • budget uncertainty, the risk of future budget cuts, the debt ceiling and the potential for government shutdowns and changing funding and acquisition priorities;
  • the company's reliance on contracts with the U.S. Government, which are dependent on U.S. Government funding and can be terminated for convenience, and the company's ability to negotiate favorable contract terms;
  • risks related to the development, production, sustainment, performance, schedule, cost and requirements of complex and technologically advanced programs including the company's largest, the F-35 program;
  • planned production rates and orders for significant programs; compliance with stringent performance and reliability standards; materials availability;
  • performance and financial viability of key suppliers, teammates, joint ventures and partners, subcontractors and customers;
  • economic, industry, business and political conditions including their effects on governmental policy and government actions that disrupt the company's supply chain or prevent the sale or delivery of its products (such as delays in approvals for exports requiring Congressional notification);
  • trade policies or sanctions (including potential Chinese sanctions on the company or its suppliers, teammates or partners; U.S. Government sanctions on Turkey and its removal from the F-35 program and potential U.S. Government actions to restrict sales to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates);
  • the company's success expanding into and doing business in adjacent markets and internationally and the differing risks posed by international sales;
  • changes in foreign national priorities and foreign government budgets and planned orders;
  • the competitive environment for the company's products and services, including increased pricing pressures, aggressive pricing in the absence of cost realism evaluation criteria, competition from outside the aerospace and defense industry, and bid protests;
  • the timing and customer acceptance of product deliveries and performance milestones;
  • the company's ability to develop new technologies and products, including emerging digital and network technologies and capabilities;
  • the company's ability to attract and retain a highly skilled workforce; the impact of work stoppages or other labor disruptions;
  • cyber or other security threats or other disruptions faced by the company or its suppliers;
  • the company's ability to implement and continue, and the timing and impact of, capitalization changes such as share repurchases and dividend payments;
  • the company's ability to recover costs under U.S. Government contracts and changes in contract mix;
  • the accuracy of the company's estimates and projections;
  • the impact of pension risk transfers, including potential noncash settlement charges; timing and estimates regarding pension funding and movements in interest rates and other changes that may affect pension plan assumptions, stockholders' equity, the level of the FAS/CAS adjustment; actual returns on pension plan assets and the impact of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021;
  • the successful operation of joint ventures that the company does not control;
  • realizing the anticipated benefits of acquisitions or divestitures, investments, joint ventures, teaming arrangements or internal reorganizations, and market volatility in the fair value of investments in the company's Lockheed Martin Ventures Fund that are marked to market;
  • risks related to the company's proposed acquisition of Aerojet Rocketdyne, including the failure to obtain, delays in obtaining or adverse conditions contained in any required regulatory approvals and the company's ability to successfully and timely integrate the business and realize synergies and other expected benefits of the transaction;
  • the company's efforts to increase the efficiency of its operations and improve the affordability of its products and services;
  • the risk of an impairment of the company's assets, including the potential impairment of goodwill recorded as a result of the acquisition of the Sikorsky business;
  • the availability and adequacy of the company's insurance and indemnities;
  • the company's ability to benefit fully from or adequately protect its intellectual property rights;
  • procurement and other regulations and policies affecting the company's industry, export of its products, cost allowability or recovery, preferred contract type, and performance and progress payments policy, including a reversal or modification to the DoD's increase to the progress payment rate in response to COVID-19;
  • changes in accounting, U.S. or foreign tax, export or other laws, regulations, and policies and their interpretation or application; and
  • the outcome of legal proceedings, bid protests, environmental remediation efforts, audits, government investigations or government allegations that the company has failed to comply with law, other contingencies and U.S. Government identification of deficiencies in its business systems.

These are only some of the factors that may affect the forward-looking statements contained in this news release. For a discussion identifying additional important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, see the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission including, but not limited to, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Risk Factors" in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2020, and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. The company's filings may be accessed through the Investor Relations page of its website, www.lockheedmartin.com/investor, or through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

The company's actual financial results likely will be different from those projected due to the inherent nature of projections. Given these uncertainties, forward-looking statements should not be relied on in making investment decisions. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as of the date of its filing. Except where required by applicable law, the company expressly disclaims a duty to provide updates to forward-looking statements after the date of this news release to reflect subsequent events, changed circumstances, changes in expectations, or the estimates and assumptions associated with them. The forward-looking statements in this news release are intended to be subject to the safe harbor protection provided by the federal securities laws.

The company closes its books and records on the last Sunday of each month, except for the month of December, as our fiscal year ends on
Dec. 31. As a result, quarters are typically 13 weeks in length but the number of weeks in a reporting period may vary slightly during the year
and for comparable prior year periods.
