Program Execution Generates Operating Margin and EPS Growth

•Revenues were $1.68 billion for the second quarter of 2013
•Segment operating margin was 8.1%, a 70 bps improvement over Q2 2012
•Total operating margin was 6.9%, up from 6.2% in the same period last year
•Diluted earnings per share was $1.12 for the quarter; pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share was $1.36
•Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter were $623 million

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) reported second quarter 2013 revenues of $1.68 billion, down 2.2% from the same period last year. Segment operating income for the second quarter was $136 million, compared to $127 million in the same period last year. Total operating income for the quarter was $116 million, up 9.4% from $106 million in the same period last year. Pension-adjusted operating income for the second quarter was $134 million, or 8% of revenue, up from $125 million, or 7.3% of revenue, in the comparable period of 2012. The income increases were primarily attributable to additional risk retirement on the SSN-774 Virginia-class (VCS) and National Security Cutter (NSC) programs, partially offset by lower volumes on amphibious assault ships and the receipt of $7 million for resolution of a contract dispute with a private party in the same period last year.

Second quarter diluted earnings per share was $1.12, compared to $1.00 in the same period of 2012. Pension-adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $1.36, compared to $1.24 in the comparable period of 2012.

New business awards for the quarter were $5.3 billion, bringing total backlog at the end of the quarter to $20.7 billion, of which $13.7 billion is funded. Significant new awards during the period included contracts for the construction of five DDG-51 Arleigh Burke- class destroyers, the inactivation of CVN-65 USS Enterprise and the construction of NSC-6 Munro.

"I am very pleased with the program execution at both Ingalls and Newport News as we drive performance toward our 2015 target of 9% operating margin," said Mike Petters, HII's president and chief executive officer. "We also continue to strengthen our backlog and long-term revenue visibility through the receipt of major new contract awards."
