NEWPORT NEWS, Va., May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) reported first quarter 2016 revenues of $1.76 billion, up 12.3 percent from the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share in the quarter was $2.87, compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.79 in the same period of 2015.

Segment operating income for the first quarter was $166 million and segment operating margin was 9.4 percent, compared to $128 million and 8.2 percent, respectively, in the same period last year. Total operating income for the first quarter was $198 million and total operating margin was 11.2 percent, compared to $156 million and 9.9 percent, respectively, in the same period last year. These increases were primarily driven by strong operating performance at Ingalls Shipbuilding and favorable FAS/CAS Adjustment.

New business awards for the quarter were approximately $1.0 billion, bringing total backlog to $21.3 billion as of March 31, 2016.

“Operating results in the quarter were strong, as Ingalls continued to execute well on its programs,” said Mike Petters, HII’s president and CEO. “As we progress through this challenging period at Newport News, with the impending three carrier deliveries, we are working diligently with our Navy customer to bring these ships to completion.”

Income tax benefits of approximately $18 million were recognized as income tax benefit in the statements of operations during the three months ended March 31, 2016. These tax benefits were reported as operating activity in the statements of cash flows and prior year tax benefits were adjusted to conform to the current year operating activity presentation.

Segment Operating Results

Ingalls Shipbuilding

      Three Months Ended    
      March 31    
($ in millions)     2016 2015 $ Change   % Change
Revenues     $ 586   $ 469   $ 117   24.9 %
Operating income (loss)       82     45     37   82.2 %
Operating margin %       14.0 %   9.6 %   440 bps  
                       

Ingalls revenues for the first quarter increased $117 million, or 24.9 percent, from the same period in 2015 due to higher revenues in Surface Combatants and Amphibious Assault Ships, partially offset by lower revenues in the Legend-class National Security Cutter (NSC) program. Higher Surface Combatant revenues were primarily due to increased volume on DDG-121 Frank E. Petersen, Jr. Higher Amphibious Assault Ships revenues were primarily due to increased volumes on LPD-28 Ft. Lauderdale and LHA-7 Tripoli. Lower NSC program revenues were primarily due to the delivery of NSC-5 USCGC James in 2015, partially offset by increased volume on NSC-8 Midgett.

Ingalls operating income for the first quarter was $82 million, an increase of $37 million from the same period last year. Operating margin was 14.0 percent for the quarter, compared to 9.6 percent in the same period last year. These increases were primarily due to performance improvement and higher risk retirement on the LPD and DDG programs.

Key Ingalls milestones for the quarter:

  • Received a $618 million contract modification to build the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer DDG-123
  • Received $117 million of additional long lead time material procurement for amphibious transport dock LPD-28 
  • Authenticated the keel on NSC-7 Kimball (WMSL 756)
  • Completed builder's sea trials on LPD-26 John P. Murtha
  • Launched LPD-27 Portland

Operating margin % 7.7 %   8.8 %     (105) bps  
                   

Newport News revenues for the first quarter increased $92 million, or 8.7 percent, from the same period in 2015, primarily driven by higher revenues in Energy and Submarines, partially offset by lower revenues in Aircraft Carriers. Higher Energy revenues were due to increased volumes and the resolution of outstanding contract changes on a commercial contract, partially offset by decreased volumes associated with environmental remediation programs. Higher Submarines revenues related to the SSN-774 Virginia-class submarine (VCS) program were due to increased volumes on Block IV boats, partially offset by decreased volumes on Block III boats. Lower Aircraft Carriers revenues were due to decreased volumes on the construction contract for CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford and the execution contract for the CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH), partially offset by increased volume on the construction contract for CVN-79 John F. Kennedy.

Newport News operating income for the first quarter was $89 million, a decrease of $4 million from the same period last year. Operating margin was 7.7 percent for the quarter, compared to 8.8 percent in the same period last year. These decreases were primarily due to lower risk retirement on the VCS program, lower volume on the execution contract for the CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln RCOH and lower performance on CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford, partially offset by higher performance on fleet support services.

Key Newport News milestones for the quarter:

  • Christened the Virginia-class submarine Washington (SSN 787)
  • Received a $205 million contract option to continue planning for the RCOH of the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73)
  • Continental Maritime of San Diego was selected as one of three companies to split a five-year, $1.32 billion contract to maintain amphibious warfare and surface combatant ships in San Diego

Revenues in the Other segment for the first quarter decreased $16 million or 40.0 percent from the same period last year, primarily due to lower volumes in oil and gas services. The operating loss for the quarter was $5 million, compared to an operating loss of $10 million in the same period last year. The decrease in the operating loss was driven by significantly lower restructuring costs in the quarter compared to the restructuring costs in first quarter 2015.

Exhibit B: Non-GAAP Measures Definition

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

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

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

Adjusted net earnings is defined as net earnings adjusted for the tax-effected FAS/CAS Adjustment.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share is defined as adjusted net earnings divided by the weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding.

We internally manage our operations by reference to "segment operating income" and "segment operating margin," which are not recognized measures under GAAP. When analyzing our operating performance, investors should use segment operating income and segment operating margin in addition to, and not as alternatives for, total operating income and total operating margin or any other performance measure presented in accordance with GAAP. They are measures that we use to evaluate our core operating performance. We believe that segment operating income and segment operating margin reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We believe these measures are used by investors and are a useful indicator to measure our performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of segment operating income and segment operating margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share are not measures recognized under GAAP. They should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe these measures are useful to investors because they normalize our operating performance by excluding non-recurring items or items that do not reflect our core operating performance. They may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
