TransDigm Group Reports Fiscal 2019 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

November 19, 2019

CLEVELAND, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE: TDG), a leading global designer, producer and supplier of highly engineered aircraft components, today reported results for the fourth quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Fourth quarter highlights include:

Fiscal 2019 highlights include:

On September 20, 2019, TransDigm completed the divestiture of its Esterline Interface Technologies (EIT) group of businesses to an affiliate of KPS Capital Partners, LP for approximately $190 million. On July 21, 2019 TransDigm received a binding offer pursuant to a put option agreement from Eaton Corporation plc (NYSE:ETN) for the acquisition by Eaton of Souriau-Sunbank Connection Technologies (Souriau-Sunbank) in a transaction valued at approximately $920 million. The transaction is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of calendar 2019. Accordingly, the EIT and Souriau-Sunbank results are presented as discontinued operations, and as such, $126.6 million of net sales and $25.5 million of EBITDA As Defined are excluded from continuing operations for the quarter. Net sales of $294.0 million and $63.3 million of EBITDA As Defined are excluded for the full fiscal year. Both EIT and Souriau-Sunbank were acquired by TransDigm in March 2019 as part of the Esterline Technologies acquisition.

The acquisition of Esterline as well as the associated financing, the subsequent divestiture of EIT, and the expected divestiture of Souriau-Sunbank significantly impacted certain year-over-year comparisons.

Net sales for the quarter rose 46.9%, or $491.9 million, to $1,541.3 million from $1,049.4 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Organic sales growth was 8.0%. Acquisition sales contributed $407.6 million, substantially all from Esterline.

Net income from continuing operations for the quarter increased 37.2% to $316.0 million, or $4.08 per share, compared to $230.3 million, or $4.14 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase in net income from continuing operations primarily reflects the increase in net sales described above partially offset by higher operating costs attributable to Esterline, as well as higher interest expense.

GAAP earnings per share were reduced in the quarter by $1.54 per share, representing dividend equivalent payments made in the fourth quarter related to the $30.00 per share dividend declared and paid in the quarter. No dividend equivalent payments were made during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

Net income from discontinued operations for the quarter was $30.9 million, or $0.55 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.03 loss per share in the comparable period a year ago.

Adjusted net income for the quarter increased 28.1% to $316.4 million, or $5.62 per share, from $247.0 million, or $4.44 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago.

EBITDA for the quarter increased 43.1% to $700.2 million from $489.4 million for the comparable quarter a year ago. EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 34.8% to $707.2 million compared with $524.8 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the quarter was 45.9%.

“We are pleased with our operating results and the strength of the consolidated TransDigm business,” stated Kevin Stein, TransDigm Group’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our consolidated business performed exceptionally well in the fourth quarter with good growth in all major end markets. The Esterline acquisition continues to track ahead of our expectations.”

Financing Activity Subsequent to the Quarter

On November 13, 2019, TransDigm successfully completed a private offering of $2.65 billion of 5.50% senior subordinated notes due 2027. TransDigm will use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to redeem all of its $1.15 billion of outstanding 6.0% senior subordinated notes due 2022. The remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include potential future acquisitions, dividends or repurchases under its stock repurchase program.

Full Fiscal Year Results

Fiscal 2019 net sales rose 37.1%, or $1,412.1 million, to $5,223.2 million from $3,811.1 million in the comparable period last year. Organic sales growth was 10.5%. Acquisition sales contributed $1,010.5 million, primarily from Esterline.

Fiscal 2019 net income from continuing operations declined 12.7% to $839.3 million, or $12.94 per share, compared to $961.5 million, or $16.28 per share, in the comparable period last year. The increase in net sales described above was offset primarily by higher operating costs and acquisition-related expenses attributable to Esterline, as well as higher interest expense and effective tax rate related to the new debt. Excluding these negative impacts, the strong operating performance of the legacy TransDigm business would have translated to higher net income and earnings per share growth. Further, fiscal 2018 net income includes a one-time provisional benefit of $146.4 million, or $2.63 per share due to the enactment of tax reform.

GAAP earnings per share were reduced in both 2019 and 2018 by $1.97 per share and $1.01 per share, respectively, representing dividend equivalent payments made during each year.

Net income from discontinued operations in fiscal 2019 was $50.4 million, or $0.90 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.08 loss per share in the comparable period a year ago.

Fiscal 2019 adjusted net income increased 3.7% to $1,028.1 million, or $18.27 per share, from $991.2 million, or $17.83 per share, in the comparable period a year ago.

Fiscal 2019 EBITDA increased 20.8% to $2,148.3 million from $1,778.4 million for the comparable period a year ago. EBITDA As Defined for the period increased 28.9% to $2,418.8 million compared with $1,876.6 million in the comparable period a year ago. EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales for the period was 46.3%.

Mr. Stein continued, “Fiscal 2019 was a busy but very successful year for TransDigm. Full year organic revenue growth was strong at 10.5%, we completed the largest acquisition in our history and returned $30 per share, or approximately $1.7 billion, to our shareholders in the form of special dividend paid in August. The recently completed financing transactions will leave us with significant liquidity and financial flexibility to meet any capital market requirements or other opportunities. We look forward to fiscal 2020 and the opportunity to continue to create value for our stakeholders.”

Please see the attached tables for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, and adjusted net income; a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to EBITDA and EBITDA As Defined, and a reconciliation of earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share for the periods discussed in this press release.

Fiscal 2020 Outlook

Assuming no additional acquisitions or divestitures, TransDigm expects fiscal 2020 financial guidance to be as follows:

Please see the attached table 6 for a reconciliation of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined to net income and reported earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share guidance mid-point estimated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Information

EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, EBITDA As Defined Margin, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release as supplemental disclosures to net income and reported results. TransDigm Group defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and defines EBITDA As Defined as EBITDA plus certain non-operating items, refinancing costs, acquisition-related costs, transaction-related costs and non-cash charges incurred in connection with certain employee benefit plans. TransDigm Group defines adjusted net income as net income plus purchase accounting backlog amortization expense, effects from the sale on businesses, refinancing costs, acquisition-related costs, transaction-related costs and non-cash charges incurred in connection with certain employee benefit plans. EBITDA As Defined Margin represents EBITDA As Defined as a percentage of net sales. TransDigm Group defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by the total shares for basic and diluted earnings per share. For more information regarding the computation of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined and adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share, please see the attached financial tables.

TransDigm Group presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they are useful indicators of its operating performance. TransDigm Group believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to measure operating performance among companies with different capital structures, effective tax rates and tax attributes, capitalized asset values and employee compensation structures, all of which can vary substantially from company to company. In addition, analysts, rating agencies and others use EBITDA to evaluate a company’s ability to incur and service debt. EBITDA As Defined is used to measure TransDigm Inc.’s compliance with the financial covenant contained in its credit facility. TransDigm Group’s management also uses EBITDA As Defined to review and assess its operating performance, to prepare its annual budget and financial projections and to review and evaluate its management team in connection with employee incentive programs. Moreover, TransDigm Group’s management uses EBITDA As Defined to evaluate acquisitions and as a liquidity measure. In addition, TransDigm Group’s management uses adjusted net income as a measure of comparable operating performance between time periods and among companies as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance.

None of EBITDA, EBITDA As Defined, EBITDA As Defined Margin, adjusted net income or adjusted earnings per share is a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and such financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, earnings per share, cash flows from operating activities or other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, TransDigm Group’s calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Although we use EBITDA and EBITDA As Defined as measures to assess the performance of our business and for the other purposes set forth above, the use of these non-GAAP financial measures as analytical tools has limitations, and you should not consider any of them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results of operations as reported in accordance with GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
