Huntington Ingalls Industries reports third quarter 2012 revenues of $1.60 billion, up 0.2 percent from the same period last year.
- Revenues were $1.60 billion for the third quarter 2012
- Diluted earnings per share was $0.26 for the quarter
- Adjusted diluted earnings per share, which excludes a non-cash workers' compensation charge and the impact of a non-cash tax expense, was $0.74
- Cash and cash equivalents were $766 million at quarter-end
Segment operating income in the quarter was $89 million, with a segment operating margin of 5.6 percent, compared to a loss of $187 million in the same period last year. Total operating income for the quarter was $66 million, compared to a loss of $190 million in the same period of 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to the absence in 2012 of the goodwill impairment charge recorded in 2011. Total operating margin was 4.1 percent for the quarter.
Cash provided by operating activities in the third quarter was $137 million, down $95 million from the same period last year. New business awards for the quarter were $1.7 billion, bringing total backlog to $16.4 billion as of Sept. 30, of which $12.9 billion is funded.
"Core operating performance at HII continues to improve, and the company remains on pace to deliver 9 percent plus operating margins by 2015," said Mike Petters, HII's president and chief executive officer. "Although the underperforming ships at Ingalls continue to prove challenging, we delivered LPD-23 Anchorage during the third quarter, and we expect to deliver LPD-24 Arlington by the end of this year.
Our backlog remains healthy at $16.4 billion and we are working diligently with our Navy and Coast Guard customers to provide affordable and high-quality warships."
