Huntington Ingalls Reports 2Q Earnings

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. reported second quarter 2011 sales of $1.56 billion, down 2.9 percent from the same period last year, and operating margin of 5.8 percent, up from negative 1.2 percent last year. Second quarter diluted earnings per share was $0.80, up from a loss of $0.23 in 2010. Cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of 2011 was $186 million, up $91 million, or 96 percent, over the same period last year. New business awards for the 2011 second quarter were approximately $1.0 billion, bringing total backlog to $16.8 billion as of June 30.                     

Second quarter consolidated sales decreased $47 million from the same period in 2010, driven by lower sales volume on the DDG-51 program and the CVN-65 USS Enterprise Extended Dry-docking Selected Restricted Availability (EDSRA). These decreases were partially offset by higher sales on the LHA program, the National Security Cutter program and the advanced planning contract for the CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln Refueling and Complex Overhaul (RCOH). Additionally, during the second quarter of 2010 the LPD program was impacted by the decision to wind down shipbuilding operations at the Avondale, La., facility in 2013, which resulted in a reduction to revenues of $115 million in 2010 to reflect revised estimates to complete LPD-23 Anchorage and LPD-25 Somerset.

Segment operating income in the quarter was $98 million, up $108 million from the year earlier period. Total operating income was $91 million, up from negative $20 million last year. Total operating margin was 5.8 percent for the quarter, compared with negative 1.2 percent in 2010. The results for the second quarter of 2010 included a $113 million pre-tax charge resulting from the decision to wind down shipbuilding operations at the facility in Avondale. Excluding the non-recurring items related to Avondale, total operating margin was 5.4 percent(2) in the second quarter of 2010.

The value of new contract awards during the three months ended June 30, 2011, was approximately $1 billion. Significant new awards during this period include the construction contract for DDG-113 and additional contract work for the CVN-71 USS Theodore Roosevelt RCOH.       

Ingalls revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2011, decreased $6 million from the same period in 2010, primarily driven by lower sales in the DDG-51 program, partially offset by higher sales in the LHA program. The decrease in the DDG-51 program was primarily due to the deliveries of DDG-107 USS Gravely in the third quarter of 2010 and DDG-110 USS William P. Lawrence in the first quarter of 2011. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2010 the LPD program was impacted by the decision to wind down shipbuilding operations at the Avondale facility in 2013, which resulted in a $115 million reduction to revenues to reflect revised estimates to complete LPD-23 and LPD-25.

Ingalls operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2011, was $19 million compared with an operating loss of $94 million in the same period in 2010. Ingalls operating margin was 2.7 percent for the quarter, compared with negative 13.2 percent for the same period last year. The three months ended June 30, 2011, included negative cumulative margin corrections of $19 million on the LPD-22 through LPD-25 contract, partially offset by performance improvements on other programs. The results for the second quarter of 2010 included a $113 million pre-tax charge resulting from the Avondale decision. Excluding the non-recurring items related to Avondale, Ingalls operating margin was 2.3 percent(3) in the second quarter of 2010, compared with 2.7 percent this quarter.

Key Ingalls program milestones for the quarter:

    * Awarded construction contract for DDG-113, the first destroyer in the restart of the DDG-51 program
    * Began fabrication of LPD-26 John P. Murtha, the latest in the San Antonio class of amphibious transport docks
    * Christened amphibious transport dock LPD-23 Anchorage
    * Conducted builder's trials for the latest National Security Cutter, WMSL-752 Stratton

Newport News revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2011, decreased $41 million, or 4.5 percent, from the same period in 2010, primarily driven by lower sales volume on the CVN-71 USS Theodore Roosevelt RCOH and CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford, partially offset by higher sales volume on the advanced planning contract for the CVN-72 USS Abraham Lincoln RCOH. The year-over-year decrease was also driven by performance improvements realized on the Virginia-class submarine program in the second quarter of 2010, which was not recurring in the same period in 2011.

Newport News operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2011, was $79 million compared with $84 million in the same period 2010. The decrease was primarily due to the lower sales volume described above and the impact of performance improvements realized on the Virginia-class submarine program in the second quarter of 2010, which were not recurring in the same period in 2011. Newport News operating margin was 9.1 percent for the quarter, relatively flat compared with 2010.

Key Newport News program milestones for the quarter:

    * Began ramp-up of Virginia-class production to two submarines per year
