NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Aug. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) reported second quarter 2014 revenues of $1.72 billion, up 2.1 percent compared to the same period last year. Second quarter diluted earnings per share was $2.04, compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.12 in the same period of 2013. Pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $1.75, compared to $1.36 in the same period of 2013.

Segment operating income for the second quarter was $163 million, compared to $136 million in the same period last year. Total operating income for the quarter was $181 million, compared to $116 million in the same period last year. The increase in operating income was primarily attributable to risk retirement at Ingalls on the National Security Cutter (NSC) program and ships delivered under the LPD-17 San Antonio-class (LPD) program, a $6 million favorable overhead adjustment at Ingalls resulting from a change in non-income based tax liabilities, as well as the favorable FAS/CAS Adjustment.

New business awards for the quarter were approximately $7.0 billion, consisting primarily of the contract for Block IV of the SSN-774 Virginia-class submarine (VCS) program. Total backlog at the end of Q2 2014 was $24.2 billion, of which $14.4 billion was funded.

On May 30, 2014, HII completed the acquisition of UniversalPegasus International Holdings (UPI). HII reported the post-acquisition results of UPI as part of its newly created Other segment. Revenues of the Other segment were $20 million, and Other operating income was less than $1 million for the quarter, primarily due to the acquisition of UPI.

“With the acquisition of UniversalPegasus, HII is leveraging its engineering and program management core competencies in the energy market, while remaining focused on our Navy program execution to reach 9-plus percent margins in 2015,” said Mike Petters, HII’s president and chief executive officer.

Ingalls revenues for the second quarter decreased $20 million, or 3.4 percent, from the same period in 2013, driven by lower sales in amphibious assault ships, partially offset by higher sales in the NSC program and surface combatants. The decrease in amphibious assault ships revenues was due to lower volumes on LHA-6America and LPD-25 USS Somerset, partially offset by higher volumes on LHA-7 Tripoli. Revenues on the NSC program were higher due to higher volumes on NSC-6 Munro, NSC-7 Kimball, NSC-5 James and NSC-4Hamilton construction contracts. Surface combatants revenues were higher due to higher volumes on DDG-117Paul Ignatius, DDG-119 (unnamed) and DDG-114 Ralph Johnson construction contracts, partially offset by lower volumes on the DDG-1000 Zumwalt-class program.

Ingalls operating income for the quarter was $59 million, an increase of $28 million over the same period in 2013. Ingalls operating margin was 10.3 percent for the quarter, compared to 5.2 percent in Q2 2013. These increases were primarily due to risk retirement on the NSC program and ships delivered under the LPD program, as well as a $6 million favorable overhead adjustment resulting from a change in non-income based tax liabilities.

Key Ingalls highlights for the quarter:

  • Delivered LHA-6 America to the U.S. Navy
  • Launched NSC-5 James
  • Authenticated the keel for LHA-7 Tripoli
  • Received a $76.5 million fixed-price contract to purchase long-lead materials for NSC-8 Midgett

Newport News revenues for the second quarter increased $37 million, or 3.4 percent, from the same period in 2013, primarily driven by the acquisition of The S.M. Stoller Corp., which was completed in January 2014, and higher revenues in submarines and energy, offset by lower revenues in fleet support services. Submarines revenues related to the SSN-774 Virginia-class submarine program were higher due to higher volumes on Block III construction and Block IV advance procurement contracts, partially offset by lower volumes on Block II boats following the delivery of SSN-783 USS Minnesota, the last ship of the block. Higher energy revenues were primarily driven by commercial volumes. Lower revenues in fleet support services were primarily due to the redelivery of SSN-765 USS Montpelier.

Newport News operating income for the quarter was $104 million, a $1 million decrease from the same period in 2013. Newport News operating margin was 9.2 percent for the quarter, down from 9.6 percent in Q2 2013. These decreases were mainly related to lower risk retirement on the VCS program and the execution contract for the CVN-71 USS Theodore Roosevelt refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH), partially offset by higher risk retirement on the construction contract for CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford.

Key Newport News highlights for the quarter:

  • Reached pressure hull complete construction milestone on SSN-785 John Warner
  • AMSEC received an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to provide engineering, technical, repair and logistics support to the U.S. Navy's Carrier Engineering Maintenance Assist Team (CEMAT) and Surface Ship Engineering Maintenance Assist Team (SEMAT) programs. The cumulative value of the contract, if all options are exercised, is $187 million.
  • Placed the new upper-level structure on CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln's island

Exhibit B: Reconciliations

We make reference to “segment operating income,” “segment operating margin,” “pension-adjusted operating income,” “pension-adjusted operating margin,” “pension-adjusted net earnings,” and “pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share.”

Segment operating income is total operating income before the FAS/CAS Adjustment and deferred state income taxes.

Segment operating margin is segment operating income as a percentage of total sales and service revenues.

Pension-adjusted operating income is total operating income adjusted for the FAS/CAS Adjustment.

Pension-adjusted operating margin is pension-adjusted operating income as a percentage of total sales and service revenues.

Pension-adjusted net earnings is net earnings adjusted for the tax effected FAS/CAS Adjustment.

Pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share is pension-adjusted net earnings divided by the weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding.

Segment operating income and segment operating margin are two of the key metrics we use to evaluate operating performance because they exclude items that do not affect segment performance. We believe pension-adjusted operating income, pension-adjusted operating margin, pension-adjusted net earnings and pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share are also useful metrics because they exclude non-operating items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance. Therefore, we believe it is appropriate to disclose these measures to help investors analyze our operating performance. However, these measures are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and may not be defined or calculated by other companies in the same manner.
