Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has reported first quarter 2014 revenues of US$1.59-billion, up 2.0 percent compared to the same period last year. Selected details from the financial report as follows:

  • Revenues were $1.59 billion for the first quarter of 2014
  • Segment operating margin was 8.6 percent, a 91 bps improvement over Q1 2013
  • Total operating margin was 10.0 percent, up from 6.1 percent in the same period last year
  • Diluted earnings per share was $1.81 for the quarter
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share, which excludes the FAS/CAS Adjustment, was $1.53 for the quarter
  • Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter were $742 million

New business awards for the quarter were approximately $2.2 billion, consisting primarily of contracts for continued construction preparation for CVN-79 John F. Kennedy and construction of NSC-7 Kimball. Total backlog at the end of Q1 2014 was $18.7 billion, of which $13.0 billion was funded.

"Notwithstanding continued debate surrounding the defense budget and the impact of sequestration, HII has continued to maintain a healthy backlog and strong operating performance at both segments," said Mike Petters, HII's president and chief executive officer. "With the delivery of LHA-6 America in April 2014, HII has reached a significant milestone on its path to 9 plus percent margins in 2015."
 
HII add that Newport News operating income for the quarter was $94 million, a $2 million decrease from the same period in 2013. Newport News operating margin was 9.0 percent for the quarter, down from 9.5 percent in Q1 2013.

These decreases were mainly related to lower risk retirement on the VCS program and the execution contract for CVN-71 USS Theodore Roosevelt RCOH, partially offset by risk retirement on the construction contract for CVN-78 Gerald R. Ford.
