Hexcel Corporation (NYSE:HXL) today reported fourth quarter and full year 2019 results including fourth quarter net sales of $564 million and GAAP diluted EPS of $0.86 per share.

Chairman, CEO and President Nick Stanage said: "The fourth quarter of 2019 completed a strong year for Hexcel, returning $0.86 of diluted EPS and $172 million of free cash flow. Revenue for the full year was $2,356 million, up 8.6% in constant currency compared to 2018, with adjusted diluted EPS for the year coming in 16% above 2018 at $3.54. Free cash flow for 2019 was $287 million, an increase of 21% over 2018. Our team continues to deliver productivity and efficiency improvements across the business, as evident in our strong 2019 annual performance. Turning to 2020, we are staying close to Boeing, and all our customers, as we monitor the uncertainty regarding the timing of the 737 MAX’s return to service and expected production levels. In consideration of the production cuts that affected total year sales in 2019, we have included our best assumptions in our 2020 guidance. With an exciting year ahead of us, we remain confident in the outlook for Hexcel, our healthy cash flow generation and our ability to deliver exceptional shareholder value."

The Merger of Hexcel and Woodward

Last month, Hexcel announced a definitive agreement to combine in an all-stock merger of equals with Woodward Inc. to create a premier integrated systems provider serving the aerospace and industrial sectors. Mr. Stanage said, "We are extremely excited about the prospects of bringing these two great companies together to drive even stronger investment in innovation and shareholder return in the future. Ahead of the deal closing, our focus is clear, and we will continue to drive Hexcel performance and value creation."

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results

Sales of $564.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 were 1.0% higher in constant currency than the fourth quarter of 2018.

Commercial Aerospace

  • Commercial Aerospace sales of $379.8 million decreased 1.5% (also decreased 1.5% in constant currency) for the quarter compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. Lower sales to legacy narrowbody programs without offsetting growth in the Boeing 737 MAX, and the A380 cessation caused the downside, partially mitigated by higher sales related to the Boeing 787 and 777X programs.
  • Sales to "Other Commercial Aerospace," which include regional and business aircraft, increased over 20% in constant currency for the fourth quarter of 2019 as compared to 2018. The business jet category was the largest growth contributor of the various size classes in this market.

Space & Defense

  • Space & Defense sales of $115.3 million increased 18.0% (18.9% in constant currency) for the quarter as compared to 2018. Aside from the contribution from ARC Technologies, growth was broad-based across a number of defense and space programs, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program.

Industrial

  • Total Industrial sales of $69.2 million in the fourth quarter were down 11.2% (9.3% in constant currency) compared to a strong fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Wind energy sales (the largest submarket in Industrial), which had increased substantially throughout the year, posted a softer fourth quarter with some inventory alignment towards the end of 2019. Order backlog at our key Wind Energy customer continues to be very strong.

Consolidated Operations

Gross margin for the fourth quarter was 26.0% compared to 26.8% in the prior year period. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were higher than the prior year period, reflecting the acquisition of ARC Technologies. R&T costs were lower in the quarter compared to the prior year as a result of timing related to qualification costs. Adjusted operating income in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $97.4 million, or 17.3% of sales, compared to $103.5 million, or 18.4% of sales, in 2018. The impact of exchange rates in the fourth quarter of 2019 was unfavorable by approximately 20 basis points.

FY 2019 Results

Full year 2019 sales were $2,355.7 million, an increase of 8.6% in constant currency compared to 2018.

Commercial Aerospace (68% of YTD sales)

  • Commercial Aerospace sales for the year of $1,597.7 million increased 4.8% (5.1% in constant currency) compared to 2018. Growth was driven by higher narrowbody build rates and the transition away from legacy platforms to the latest generation platforms with higher shipset values, and growth in the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 programs.
  • Sales to "Other Commercial Aerospace," which include regional and business aircraft customers, increased approximately 13% in 2019, driven by higher business jet sales.

Space & Defense (19% of YTD sales)

  • Space & Defense sales for the year of $444.7 million increased 20.2% (21.6% in constant currency) compared to 2018. The acquisition of ARC Technologies drove the largest part of the increase, and there were also strong sales across a broad range of programs including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Excluding the additional sales from ARC Technologies, S&D increased high-single-digits.

Industrial (13% of YTD sales)

  • Total Industrial sales for the year of $313.3 million increased 6.5% (10.6% in constant currency) compared to 2018.
  • The launch of a number of new wind turbine platforms utilizing the latest generation Hexcel composites led to an increase in wind energy sales of approximately 25% in constant currency compared to 2018.

Consolidated Operations

  • Gross margin for the year was 27.2% compared to 26.5% for 2018. The Company continues to focus on Operational Excellence to drive continuous improvements in efficiency and productivity.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year were approximately 11% higher in constant currency than the prior year to support growth including ARC Technologies. Research and technology expenses for the year increased approximately 3% in constant currency compared to 2018, reflecting continued investment in innovative composite products and processes to support customers and next-generation applications.
  • Adjusted operating income for 2019 was $425.2 million, or 18.0% of sales, compared to $378.9 million, or 17.3% of sales, in 2018. The year-over-year impact of exchange rates was nominal. Depreciation and amortization expense for the year increased $18.6 million over 2018, reflecting continued capital investment for future expected growth and to a lesser extent, the January 2019 ARC Technologies acquisition.

Cash and other

  • The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2019 was 16.6% compared to 24.2% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The fourth quarter of 2019 was favorably impacted by a rate adjustment due to the profit mix by country. The full year effective tax rate for 2019 was 20.2% compared to 18.8% in 2018. The adjusted effective tax rate included in the Company’s adjusted net income for 2019 was 21.0% compared to an adjusted rate of 22.0% for 2018.
  • Free cash flow for the year was $287.0 million compared to $237.3 million in 2018. Working capital was a cash source of $12.8 million in 2019 as compared to a use of $31.2 million in 2018, primarily reflecting strong accounts receivable collections. Cash used for capital expenditures was $204.1 million in 2019 compared to $184.1 million in 2018. Free cash flow is defined as cash generated from operating activities less cash paid for capital expenditures.
  • The Company used $76 million to repurchase shares of its common stock during the fourth quarter of 2019 bringing the total for share repurchases in 2019 to $143 million. The remaining authorization under the share repurchase program at December 31, 2019 was $242 million.
  • As announced today, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share. The dividend will be payable to stockholders of record as of February 14, 2020, with a payment date of February 21, 2020.

2020 Guidance

Chairman, CEO and President Nick Stanage said: "As I look to 2020, the fundamentals of our business are positive, despite the headwinds from the Boeing 737 MAX. We continue to see the strong trend of secular penetration for composites onto modern aircraft and are well-positioned to win significant market share on new programs. In relation to the Boeing 737 MAX, our intent is to continue working very closely with Boeing and all of our 737 MAX program customers to meet their demand needs. As you will be aware, there continues to be considerable uncertainty in terms of the number of 737 MAX planes to be produced in 2020. To provide clarity on our guidance, we have assumed that we will sell material for 200 737 MAX aircraft in 2020. As the actual demand becomes clearer as we move through the year we will adjust guidance accordingly."

Mr. Stanage continued, "Given our assumption for the 737 MAX we are forecasting flat-to-low-single-digit revenue growth for 2020 and low-to-mid-single-digit EPS growth. Our cash generation cycle continues to gain momentum and we forecast over $300 million of Free Cash Flow in 2020, demonstrating continued disciplined execution and our focus on Operational Excellence."

Guidance is as follows:

  • Sales: Flat-to-low-single-digit growth
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share: Low-to-mid-single-digit growth
  • Free cash flow greater than $300 million.
  • Accrual basis capital expenditures of $100 million to $120 million.
  • Underlying effective tax rate is estimated at 23.0%.

Market-Specific Sales Outlook

  • Commercial Aerospace: Down low-to-mid-single-digit
  • Space & Defense: Up high-single-digit
  • Industrial: Up mid-single-digit

The Company is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of our non-GAAP guidance to the corresponding GAAP information because the GAAP measures that we exclude from our non-GAAP guidance are difficult to predict and are primarily dependent on future uncertainties.

Merger of Equals with Woodward

On January 12, 2020, Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ:WWD) and Hexcel Corporation (NYSE:HXL) announced a definitive agreement to combine in an all-stock merger of equals to create a premier integrated systems provider serving the aerospace and industrial sectors. Under the terms of the agreement approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies, Hexcel shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 0.625 shares of Woodward common stock for each share of Hexcel common stock, and Woodward shareholders will continue to own the same number of shares of common stock in the combined company as they do immediately prior to the closing. The exchange ratio is consistent with the 30-day average share prices of both companies immediately preceding the announcement of the transaction. Upon completion of the merger, existing Woodward shareholders will own approximately 55% and existing Hexcel shareholders will own approximately 45% of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

The merger is expected to close in the third calendar quarter of 2020, subject to the approval of the shareholders of both Woodward and Hexcel, as well as other customary closing conditions, including required regulatory approvals. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be named Woodward Hexcel.
