Moog Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

29 April 2016

East Aurora, NY — Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) today announced second quarter earnings per share of $0.85, up 6% from last year on slightly lower sales of $611 million. Cash flow from operating activities was strong, at $79 million, while net earnings of $31 million were down marginally from a year ago.

Total Aircraft Controls sales in the quarter were slightly higher at $276 million. Commercial OEM sales were 3% higher, at $114 million. Increased sales to Airbus, up 36%, offset slightly weaker Boeing sales, down 5%, and business jet sales, down 20%. Commercial aftermarket sales were $30 million, up 2%, on initial provisioning spares for the A350 program.

Military aircraft sales were down 2%, to $132 million. OEM sales were slightly higher, at $81 million, with higher foreign military sales offsetting lower V-22 tilt rotor sales. Military aftermarket sales were down 6%, to $51 million, as the C-5 modernization program continues to wind down.

Space and Defense segment sales were $89 million, 4% lower than a year ago. Space sales were $43 million, a decrease of 12% due to lower sales of controls for satellites. Defense sales of $46 million were up 4% on improved military vehicle sales.

Sales in the Company’s Industrial Systems segment were flat at $128 million. Sales of simulation and test products, including motion bases for flight training simulators, were 11% higher, at $31 million. Excluding currency effects, industrial automation sales of $66 million were stable and in line with the broader industrial economy. Sales into energy markets were down 6% from last year, to $31 million.

Components segment sales at $94 million, were 18% lower than last year but up nicely from the first quarter. Sales of aerospace and defense products were $40 million, down 13%, partly due to softer helicopter program and aftermarket sales. Sales into energy, industrial and medical markets experienced slowdowns across a range of programs.

The Medical Devices segment had sales of $24 million in the quarter, mostly unchanged from a year ago. Through the first six months of the year, excluding previously divested life sciences sales, organic sales are up 11%.

The Company incurred $8 million in restructuring during the quarter, mostly associated with the Aircraft Controls segment.

The twelve month consolidated backlog is $1.2 billion compared to $1.3 billion a year ago.

The Company maintained its previous guidance for 2016 to include sales for the year at $2.47 billion and earnings per share of $3.35, plus or minus $0.15 per share.   

“We’re pleased with the results of the quarter,” said John Scannell, Chairman and CEO. “We came in at the high end of our guidance, had strong cash flow and we’re maintaining our sales and EPS forecast for the full year.”
