FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Woodward, Inc. (NASDAQ:WWD) today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2022. (All amounts are presented on an as reported (U.S. GAAP) basis unless otherwise indicated. All per share amounts are presented on a fully diluted basis. All comparisons are made to the same period of the prior year unless otherwise stated.)

Third Quarter Overview

  • Net sales were $614 million, compared to $557 million, an increase of 10 percent.

  • Net earnings were $39 million, or $0.64 per share, compared to net earnings of $49 million, or $0.74 per share.

  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $86 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022, compared to $318 million. Free cash flow1 for the first nine months of fiscal 2022 was $49 million, compared to $297 million. Adjusted free cash flow1 for the first nine months of fiscal 2022 was $52 million. There were no adjustments made to free cash flow during the first nine months of the prior fiscal year.

“We delivered double digit sales growth in the quarter. Aerospace segment sales were boosted by increased aircraft utilization and strong OEM build rate demand. In our Industrial segment, we saw sales growth in most of our end markets. Weakness in China natural gas truck production and unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates contributed to a decrease in Industrial segment sales,” said Chip Blankenship, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Profitability was impacted by labor and material inflation, as well as greater than expected global supply chain and labor disruptions. We remain focused on mitigating these impacts to fully realize the ongoing recovery in our end markets.”

Third Quarter Company Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $614 million, compared to $557 million, an increase of 10 percent. Sales for the third quarter were negatively impacted by approximately $18 million from foreign currency exchange rates. The impact of ongoing global supply chain and labor disruptions remains consistent with the second quarter of 2022 at approximately $100 million.

Net earnings were $39 million, or $0.64 per share, for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $49 million, or $0.74 per share. EBIT1 was $58 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $67 million.

The effective tax rate was 21.6 percent for the third quarter of 2022, compared to 16.8 percent.

Segment Results

Aerospace

Aerospace segment net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $402 million, compared to $341 million, an increase of 18 percent.

Commercial OEM and aftermarket sales increased significantly compared to the prior year quarter, driven by higher OEM production rates, continued recovery in passenger traffic, and increasing aircraft utilization. Defense sales were down compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to lower defense aftermarket sales as a result of global supply chain and labor disruptions.

Segment earnings for the third quarter of 2022 were $57 million, compared to $53 million. Segment earnings as a percent of segment net sales were 14.1 percent for the third quarter of 2022, compared to 15.6 percent. Aerospace segment earnings increased primarily as a result of significantly higher commercial OEM and aftermarket sales. Segment earnings, including as a percent of segment net sales, were negatively impacted by net inflationary impacts on material and labor costs, as well as increases in manufacturing costs related to supply chain disruptions and inefficiencies related to training recent hires.

Industrial

Industrial segment net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $213 million, compared to $216 million, a decrease of 1 percent. Industrial sales for the third quarter of 2022 declined primarily due to weakness in China natural gas engines and the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates, partially offset by higher marine sales driven by higher utilization of the in-service fleet as well as increased industrial turbomachinery sales supporting increasing demand for power generation and process industries. The foreign currency exchange rates' unfavorable impact on Industrial segment net sales for the third quarter of 2022 was approximately $16 million.

Industrial segment earnings for the third quarter of 2022 were $21 million, or 9.9 percent of segment net sales, compared to $27 million, or 12.6 percent of segment net sales. Industrial segment earnings decreased primarily as a result of additional costs incurred due to supply chain disruptions and training recent hires, net inflationary impacts on material and labor costs, and unfavorable foreign currency effects. These impacts were partially offset by higher sales volume.

Nonsegment

Nonsegment expenses were $19 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $14 million.

Year-to-Date Results

Net sales for the first nine months of 2022 were $1.74 billion, compared to $1.68 billion. Net earnings for the first nine months of 2022 were $118 million, or $1.84 per share, compared to $159 million, or $2.42 per share. Adjusted net earnings for the first nine months of 2022 were $122 million, or $1.91 per share. There were no adjustments to earnings in the prior year period.

The effective tax rate was 17.2 percent for the first nine months of 2022, compared to 14.1 percent. The adjusted effective tax rate for the first nine months of 2022 was 17.6 percent. There were no adjustments to the effective tax rate in the first nine months of the prior year.

Aerospace segment net sales for the first nine months of 2022 were $1.11 billion, compared to $1.03 billion. Aerospace segment earnings for the first nine months of 2022 were $167 million, or 15.1 percent of segment net sales, compared to $169 million, or 16.4 percent of segment net sales.

Industrial segment net sales for the first nine months of 2022 were $632 million, compared to $648 million. Industrial segment earnings for the first nine months of 2022 were $62 million, or 9.8 percent of segment net sales, compared to $88 million, or 13.6 percent of segment net sales.

Nonsegment expenses were $64 million for the first nine months of 2022, compared to $47 million. Adjusted nonsegment expenses for the first nine months of 2022 were $58 million. There were no adjustments to nonsegment expense for the first nine months of the prior year.

Cash Flow and Financial Position

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal year 2022 was $86 million, compared to $318 million. Payments for property, plant, and equipment for the first nine months of 2022 were $37 million, compared to $21 million in 2021.

Free cash flow for the first nine months of 2022 was $49 million, compared to $297 million. Adjusted free cash flow for the first nine months of 2022 was $52 million. There were no adjustments to cash flow in the prior year. The decrease in free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow was primarily related to working capital increases as a result of production delays from supply chain disruptions.

During the first nine months of 2022, $462 million was returned to stockholders in the form of $34 million of dividends and $428 million of repurchased shares.

Total debt was $766 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $740 million at June 30, 2021. Debt-to-EBITDA1 leverage was 2.0 times EBITDA at June 30, 2022, compared to 1.7 times EBITDA at June 30, 2021.

Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook

In light of the continuing global supply chain and labor disruptions and net inflationary impacts, we are revising our FY22 guidance as follows:

Total net sales for 2022 are now expected to be between $2.35 billion and $2.40 billion. Aerospace sales growth is expected to be between 8 and 10 percent. Industrial sales are expected to be approximately flat.

Aerospace segment earnings as a percent of segment net sales are now expected to be approximately 15 percent. Industrial segment earnings as a percent of segment net sales are now expected to be between 9 and 10 percent.

The adjusted effective tax rate is now expected to be approximately 17 percent.

Adjusted free cash flow is now expected to be approximately $100 million to $120 million. Capital expenditures are still expected to be approximately $60 million.

Adjusted earnings per share is now expected to be between $2.55 and $2.75 based on approximately 63 million of fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

Adjusted and Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures: Adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, and adjusted nonsegment expenses exclude, as applicable, (i) costs related to business development activities and (ii) a charge and partial reversal related to a non-recurring matter unrelated to the ongoing operations of the business. Woodward believes that these items are short-term costs or charges and are otherwise not related to the ongoing operations of the business. Therefore, Woodward uses them to illustrate more clearly how the underlying business of Woodward is performing. Adjusted free cash flow is free cash flow (defined below) plus the cash payments for costs related to business development activities and restructuring activities. Management believes these adjustments to free cash flow better portray Woodward’s operating performance. Guidance with respect to non-U.S. GAAP measures as provided in this release excludes, as applicable, costs, charges and payments related to (i) business development activities, and (ii) restructuring activities.

EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes), EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow, adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, and adjusted nonsegment expenses are financial measures not prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). Management uses EBIT and adjusted EBIT to evaluate Woodward’s operating performance without the impacts of financing and tax related considerations. Management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in evaluating Woodward’s operating performance, making business decisions, including developing budgets, managing expenditures, forecasting future periods, and evaluating capital structure impacts of various strategic scenarios. Management also uses free cash flow, which is derived from net cash provided by or used in operating activities less payments for property, plant, and equipment, as well as adjusted free cash flow (as described above), in reviewing the financial performance of Woodward’s various business segments and evaluating cash generation levels. Securities analysts, investors, and others frequently use EBIT, EBITDA and free cash flow in their evaluation of companies, particularly those with significant property, plant, and equipment, and intangible assets that are subject to amortization. The use of any of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted EBIT, and adjusted EBITDA exclude certain financial information compared with net earnings, the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, users of this financial information should consider the information that is excluded. Free cash flow does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs. Management’s calculations of EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted nonsegment expenses, free cash flow, and adjusted free cash flow may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
