1.  BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Triumph Group, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2008 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009.  For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008.

 

2.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

ORGANIZATION

 

The Company designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls aircraft components and accessories. The Company serves a broad, worldwide spectrum of the aviation industry, including original equipment manufacturers of commercial, regional, business and military aircraft and aircraft components, as well as commercial and regional airlines and air cargo carriers.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Effective April 1, 2008, the Company adopted Emerging Issues Task Force Issue No. 06-10, Accounting for Collateral Assignment Split-Dollar Life Insurance Agreements (“EITF 06-10”).  EITF 06-10 states that an employer should recognize a liability for postretirement benefits based on the applicable life insurance arrangements.  The Company recognized a cumulative-effect adjustment of  $2,991 reducing the April 1, 2008 balance of retained earnings and creating a long-term liability.  The adoption of this EITF will not have a significant impact on the Company’s future results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

 

In May 2008, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued FASB Staff Position (“FSP”) No. APB 14-1, Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May Be Settled in Cash Upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement) (“FSP APB 14-1”)FSP APB 14-1 clarifies that convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion (including partial cash settlement) are not addressed by paragraph 12 of APB Opinion No. 14, Accounting for Convertible Debt and Debt Issued with Stock Purchase Warrants.  Additionally, this FSP specifies that issuers of such instruments should separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner that will reflect the entity’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized in subsequent periods.  This FSP is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  Early adoption is not permitted.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of FSP APB 14-1 on the Company’s financial condition and results of operations.

 

In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 161, Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“SFAS 161”), which amends and expands

(unaudited)

 

2.               SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

the disclosure requirements of FASB Statement No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“SFAS 133”), with the intent to provide users of financial statements with an enhanced understanding of: (a) how and why an entity uses derivative instruments; (b) how derivative instruments and related hedged items are accounted for under SFAS 133 and its related interpretations; and (c) how derivative instruments and related hedged items affect an entity’s financial position, financial performance and cash flows. SFAS 161 requires enhanced qualitative disclosures about objectives and strategies for using derivatives, quantitative disclosures about fair value amounts of and gains and losses on derivative instruments and enhanced disclosures about credit-risk-related contingent features in derivative instruments. This statement applies to all entities and all derivative instruments. SFAS 161 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2008.

 

In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141(R), Business Combinations (“SFAS 141(R)”) and SFAS No. 160, Accounting and Reporting of Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements, an amendment of ARB No. 51 (“SFAS 160”). SFAS 141(R) and SFAS 160 significantly change the accounting for and reporting of business combination transactions and noncontrolling (minority) interests. SFAS 141(R) and SFAS 160 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008. SFAS 141(R) and SFAS 160 are effective prospectively; however, the reporting provisions of SFAS 160 are effective retroactively. SFAS 141(R) is required to be adopted concurrently with SFAS 160.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of SFAS 141(R) and SFAS 160 on the Company’s financial condition and results of operations.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

In December 2004, the FASB issued SFAS No. 123(R), Share-Based Payment, (“SFAS 123(R)”) which requires companies to measure compensation cost for all share-based payments (including employee stock options) at fair value. The Company adopted SFAS 123(R), using the modified-prospective transition method, beginning on April 1, 2006, and therefore began to expense the fair value of all outstanding options over their remaining vesting periods to the extent the options were not fully vested as of the adoption date and began to expense the fair value of all options granted subsequent to March 31, 2006 over their requisite service periods. SFAS 123(R) also requires the benefits of tax deductions in excess of recognized compensation expense to be reported as a financing cash flow ($183 and $811 for the three months ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively), rather than an operating cash flow.  Stock-based compensation expense related to employee stock options recognized under SFAS 123(R) for the three months ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007 was $805 and $540, respectively, and, in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 107 the Company has classified share-based compensation within selling, general and administrative expenses to correspond with the same line item as the majority of the cash compensation paid to employees. Previous periods have not been restated.

 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Intangible assets cost and accumulated amortization at June 30, 2008 were $129,920 and $54,427, respectively.  Intangible assets cost and accumulated amortization at March 31, 2008 were $129,920 and $51,432, respectively.  Intangible assets consists of two major classes: (i) product rights and licenses, which at June 30, 2008 had a weighted-average life of 11.3 years, and (ii) non-compete agreements, customer relationships and other, which at June 30, 2008 had a weighted-average life of 10.3 years.  Gross cost and accumulated amortization of product rights and licenses at June 30, 2008 were $74,082 and $39,818, respectively, and at March 31, 2008 were $74,082 and $38,087, respectively.  Gross cost and accumulated

amortization of noncompete agreements, customer relationships and other at June 30, 2008 were $55,838 and $14,609, respectively, and at March 31, 2008 were $55,838 and $13,345, respectively.  Amortization expense for the three months ended June 30, 2008 and 2007 was $2,995 and $2,599, respectively.  Amortization expense for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2009 and the succeeding five fiscal years by year is expected to be as follows: 2009: $11,980; 2010: $11,807; 2011: $10,022; 2012: $8,495; 2013: $8,350; and 2014: $7,377.

 

3.  ACQUISITIONS

 

FISCAL 2008 ACQUISITIONS

 

Acquisition of B. & R. Machine & Tool Corp.

 

Effective February 27, 2008, the Company acquired the assets and business of B. & R. Machine & Tool Corp. (“B&R”) through a newly organized, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Triumph Structures – Long Island, LLC.  Triumph Structures – Long Island, LLC provides aircraft structural components and dynamic parts and assemblies for commercial and military aerospace programs. The results for Triumph Structures – Long Island, LLC are included in the Company’s Aerospace Systems segment.

 

The purchase price for B&R of $84,044 includes cash paid at closing, estimated deferred payments and direct costs of the transaction.  Included in the estimated deferred payments is an earnout note for $13,000.  Payments under the earnout note are contingent upon the achievement of certain earnings levels during the earnout period.  The maximum amounts payable in respect of fiscal 2009, 2010 and 2011 are $3,500, $4,500 and $5,000, respectively.  The excess of the purchase price over the preliminary estimated fair value of the net assets acquired of $34,635 was recorded as goodwill, all of which is tax deductible. The Company has also identified intangible assets valued at approximately $20,000 with a weighted-average life of 10 years. The Company is awaiting final valuation of inventory and final appraisals of tangible and intangible assets related to its acquisition of B&R.  Accordingly, the Company has recorded its best estimate of the value of inventory, intangible assets and property and equipment.  In addition, the Company is currently estimating cost of goods sold for this subsidiary utilizing estimated gross profit rates.  Therefore, the allocation of purchase price for the acquisition of B&R is not complete and is subject to change.

 

The following condensed balance sheet represents the amounts assigned to each major asset and liability caption in the aggregate for the B & R acquisition:

The following unaudited pro forma information for the Company for the three months ended June 30, 2007 has been prepared assuming the B&R acquisition had occurred on April 1, 2007. The pro forma information for the three months ended June 30, 2007 is as follows: Net sales: $285,369; Income from continuing operations: $18,109; Income per share from continuing operations - basic: $1.10; Income per share from continuing operations – diluted:  $1.05.

 

The unaudited pro forma information includes adjustments for interest expense that would have been incurred to finance the purchase, additional depreciation based on the estimated fair market value of the property and equipment acquired, and the amortization of the intangible assets arising from the transactions.  The unaudited pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations of the Company as it would have been had the transaction been effected on the assumed date.

 

4.  DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND ASSETS HELD FOR SALE

 

In September 2007, the Company sold the assets of Triumph Precision, Inc., a build-to-specification manufacturer and supplier of ultra-precision machined components and assemblies in its Aerospace Systems segment.  The effective date of the sale was July 1, 2007.  The Company recognized a pre-tax loss of $650 on the sale of the business, which included costs to sell of $150.  The Company has also decided to sell Triumph Precision Castings Co., a casting facility in its Aftermarket Services segment that specializes in producing high quality hot gas path components for aero and land based gas turbines.   The Company recognized a pre-tax loss of $3,500 in the first quarter of fiscal 2008 based upon a write-down of the carrying value of the business to estimated fair value less costs to sell.  The write-down was applied to inventory and long-lived assets, consisting primarily of property, plant and equipment.  For financial statement purposes, the assets, liabilities, results of operations and cash flows of these businesses have been segregated from those of the continuing operations and are presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations and assets and liabilities held for sale.

 

Revenues of discontinued operations were $2,099 and $4,464 for the three months ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively.  The loss from discontinued operations was $1,203 and $3,894, net of income tax benefit of $648 and $2,097 for the three months ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively.  Interest expense of $681 and $756 was allocated to discontinued operations for the quarter ended  June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively, based upon the actual borrowings of the operations, and such interest expense is included in the loss from discontinued operations.

Credit Facility

 

On October 20, 2006, the Company amended the existing amended and restated credit agreement (the “Credit Facility”) with its lenders to increase the Credit Facility to $350,000 from $250,000, extend the maturity date to June 30, 2011 and amend certain other terms and covenants. The Credit Facility bears interest at either: (i) LIBOR plus between 0.625% and 2.00%; (ii) the prime rate; or (iii) an overnight rate at the option of the Company. The applicable interest rate is based upon the Company’s ratio of total indebtedness to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. In addition, the Company is required to pay a commitment fee of between 0.175% and 0.400% on the unused portion of the Credit Facility.

 

On December 22, 2006, the Company amended the Credit Facility with its lenders primarily to eliminate a financial covenant restricting aggregate capital expenditures to 200% of consolidated depreciation expense in any fiscal year. The Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Company’s subsidiaries.

 

At June 30, 2008, there were $189,615 in borrowings and $5,903 in letters of credit outstanding under the facility.  At March 31, 2008 there were $193,750 in borrowings and $5,941 in letters of credit outstanding under the facility.  The level of unused borrowing capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility varies from time to time depending in part upon its compliance with financial and other covenants set forth in the related agreement.  The Company is currently in compliance with all such covenants.  As of June 30, 2008, the Company had borrowing capacity under this facility of $154,482 after reductions for borrowings and letters of credit outstanding under the facility.

6.  LONG-TERM DEBT (Continued)

 

Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes

 

On September 18, 2006, the Company issued $201,250 in convertible senior subordinated notes (the “Notes”). The Notes are direct, unsecured, senior subordinated obligations of the Company, and rank (i) junior in right of payment to all of the Company’s existing and future senior indebtedness, (ii) equal in right of payment with any other future senior subordinated indebtedness, and (iii) senior in right of payment to all subordinated indebtedness.

 

The Company received net proceeds from the sale of the Notes of approximately $194,998 after deducting debt issuance expenses of approximately $6,252. The use of the net proceeds from the sale was for prepayment of the Company’s outstanding senior notes, including a make-whole premium, fees and expenses in connection with the prepayment, and to repay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company’s Credit Facility. Debt issuance costs have been recorded as other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and are being amortized over a period of five years.

 

The Notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 2.625% per annum, payable in cash semi-annually in arrears on each April 1 and October 1 beginning April 1, 2007. During the period commencing on October 6, 2011 and ending on, but excluding, April 1, 2012 and each six-month period from October 1 to March 31 or from April 1 to September 30 thereafter, the Company will pay contingent interest during the applicable interest period if the average trading price of a Note for the five consecutive trading days ending on the third trading day immediately preceding the first day of the relevant six-month period equals or exceeds 120% of the principal amount of the Notes. The contingent interest payable per Note in respect of any six-month period will equal 0.25% per annum calculated on the average trading price of a Note for the relevant five trading day period. This contingent interest feature represents an embedded derivative. Since it is in the control of the Company to call the Notes at any time after October 6, 2011, the value of the derivative was determined to be de minimis. Accordingly, no value has been assigned at issuance or at June 30, 2008.

 

The Notes mature on October 1, 2026 unless earlier redeemed, repurchased or converted. The Company may redeem the Notes for cash, either in whole or in part, anytime on or after October 6, 2011 at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest, including contingent interest and additional amounts, if any, up to but not including the date of redemption. In addition, holders of the Notes will have the right to require the Company to repurchase for cash all or a portion of their Notes on October 1, 2011, 2016 and 2021, at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, including contingent interest and additional amounts, if any, up to, but not including, the date of repurchase. The Notes are convertible into the Company’s common stock at a rate equal to 18.3655 shares per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes (equal to an initial conversion price of approximately $54.45 per share), subject to adjustment as described in the Indenture. Upon conversion, the Company will deliver to the holder surrendering the Notes for conversion, for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes, an amount consisting of cash equal to the lesser of $1,000 and the Company’s total conversion obligation and, to the extent that the Company’s total conversion obligation exceeds $1,000, at the Company’s election, cash or shares of the Company’s common stock in respect of the remainder.

 

The Notes are eligible for conversion upon meeting certain conditions as provided in the indenture governing the Notes. For the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively, the Notes were not eligible for conversion.  Accordingly, the Company has classified the Notes as long-term as of June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively.

6.  LONG-TERM DEBT (Continued)

 

To be included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share, the average price of the Company’s common stock for the quarter must exceed the conversion price per share of $54.45. The average price of the Company’s common stock for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007 was $58.98 and $62.72, respectively.  Therefore, 283,930 and 487,444 additional shares were included in the diluted earnings per share calculation as of the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007, respectively.  If the Company undergoes a fundamental change, holders of the Notes will have the right, subject to certain conditions, to require the Company to repurchase for cash all or a portion of their Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, including contingent interest and additional amounts, if any.

 

Interest Rate Swap

 

The Company uses interest rate swaps, a type of derivative financial instrument, to manage interest costs and minimize the effects of interest rate fluctuations on cash flows associated with its Credit Facility.  The Company does not use derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.  While interest rate swaps are subject to fluctuations in value, these fluctuations are generally offset by the value of the underlying exposures being hedged.  The Company minimizes the risk of credit loss by entering into these agreements with major financial institutions that have high credit ratings.  The Company accounts for its interest rate swaps in accordance with SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities, (“SFAS 133”), which requires that all derivatives be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value.  SFAS 133 also requires that changes in the fair value be recorded each period in current earnings or other comprehensive income, depending on whether a derivative has been designated as part of a hedge transaction and, if it is, depending on the type of hedge transaction.  Interest rate swaps are designated as cash flow hedges.  Changes in the fair value of a cash flow hedge, to the extent the hedge is effective, are recorded, net of tax, in other comprehensive income (loss), a component of stockholders’ equity, until earnings are affected by the variability of the hedged cash flows.  Cash flow hedge ineffectiveness, defined as the extent that the changes in the fair value of the derivative exceed the variability of cash flows of the forecasted transaction, is recorded currently in earnings.

 

In March 2008, the Company entered into an $85,000 floating-to-fixed interest rate swap agreement (the “Swap”), maturing June 2011.  Under the Swap, the Company receives interest equivalent to the one-month LIBOR and pays a fixed rate of interest of 2.925 percent with settlements occurring monthly.  The objective of the hedge is to eliminate the variability of cash flows in interest payments for $85,000 of floating rate debt under the Credit Facility.  To maintain hedge accounting for the Swap, the Company is committed to maintaining at least $85,000 in borrowings on the revolver at an interest rate based on one-month LIBOR, plus an applicable margin, through June 2011.  The Swap’s fair value of $1,899 is included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheet and the corresponding change in fair value is included in other comprehensive income, a component of stockholders’ equity.   For the three months ended June 30, 2008, $29 of losses were reclassified into earnings from accumulated other comprehensive income.

 

7.               FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS 157”).  This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  On April 1, 2008, the provisions of SFAS 157 became effective for financial assets and financial liabilities of the Company.

7.               FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS (Continued)

 

SFAS 157 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  SFAS 157 classifies the inputs used to measure fair value into the following hierarchy:

 

Level 1

 

Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

 

 

 

Level 2

 

Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, or unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability

 

 

 

Level 3

 

Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability

 

The following table provides the assets reported at fair value and measured on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2008:

Effective April 1, 2007, the Company adopted FASB Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes (“FIN 48”).  The cumulative effect of adoption of FIN 48 has been recorded as a charge of $291 to retained earnings, an increase of $66 to net deferred income tax liabilities and an increase of $225 to income taxes payable as of April 1, 2007.

9.  INCOME TAXES (Continued)

 

In conjunction with the adoption of FIN 48, the Company has classified uncertain tax positions as non-current income tax liabilities unless expected to be paid in one year.  Penalties and tax-related interest expense are reported as a component of income tax expense.  As of June 30, 2008 and March 31, 2008, the total amount of accrued income tax-related interest and penalties was $471 and $433, respectively.

 

As of June 30, 2008 and March 31, 2008, the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits was $2,988 and $2,950, respectively, of which $2,735 and $2,698, respectively, would impact the effective rate, if recognized.  The Company anticipates that total unrecognized tax benefits may be reduced by $1,140 due to the expiration of statutes of limitation for various federal tax issues in the next 12 months.

 

As of June 30, 2008, the Company’s previous examinations in state jurisdictions were settled without adjustment.  The Company has filed appeals in a state jurisdiction related to fiscal years ended March 31, 1999 through March 31, 2005.  The Company believes appropriate provisions for all outstanding issues have been made for all jurisdictions and all open years.

 

With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations for fiscal years ended before March 31, 2005, state or local examinations for fiscal years ended before March 31, 2004, or foreign income tax examinations by tax authorities for fiscal years ended before March 31, 2006.

11.  SEGMENTS

 

The Company is organized based on the products and services that it provides. Under this organizational structure, the Company has two reportable segments: the Aerospace Systems Group and the Aftermarket Services Group. The Company evaluates performance and allocates resources based on operating income of each reportable segment. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies (see Note 2). Each segment has a president and controller who manage their respective segment. The segment president reports directly to the President and CEO of the Company, the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”), as defined in SFAS No. 131, Disclosure about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.  The segment presidents maintain regular contact with the CODM to discuss operating activities, financial results, forecasts and plans for the segment. The segment controllers have dual reporting responsibilities, reporting to both their segment president as well as the Corporate Controller.  The Company’s CODM evaluates performance and allocates resources based upon review of segment information. The CODM utilizes operating income as a primary measure of profitability.

11.  SEGMENTS (Continued)

 

Our Aerospace Systems segment consists of 34 operating locations, and the Aftermarket Services segment consists of 17 operating locations at June 30, 2008.

 

The Aerospace Systems segment consists of the Company’s operations that manufacture products primarily for the aerospace OEM market. The segment’s operations design and engineer mechanical and electromechanical controls, such as hydraulic systems, main engine gearbox assemblies, accumulators and mechanical control cables. The segment’s revenues are also derived from stretch forming, die forming, milling, bonding, machining, welding and assembly and fabrication of various structural components used in aircraft wings, fuselages and other significant assemblies. Further, the segment’s operations also design and manufacture composite assemblies for floor panels, environmental control system ducts and non-structural cockpit components.  These products are sold to various aerospace OEMs on a global basis.

 

The Aftermarket Services segment consists of the Company’s operations that provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services to both commercial and military markets on components and accessories manufactured by third parties. Maintenance, repair and overhaul revenues are derived from services on auxiliary power units, airframe and engine accessories, including constant-speed drives, cabin compressors, starters and generators, and pneumatic drive units. In addition, the segment’s operations repair and overhaul thrust reversers, nacelle components and flight control surfaces.  The segment’s operations also perform repair and overhaul services and supply spare parts for various types of cockpit instruments and gauges for a broad range of commercial airlines on a worldwide basis.

 

Segment operating income is total segment revenue reduced by operating expenses identifiable with that segment. Corporate includes general corporate administrative costs and any other costs not identifiable with one of the Company’s segments.

 

The Company does not accumulate net sales information by product or service or groups of similar products and services, and therefore the Company does not disclose net sales by product or service because to do so would be impracticable.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

(The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements contained elsewhere herein.)

 

OVERVIEW

 

We are a major supplier to the aerospace industry and have two operating segments: (i) Triumph Aerospace Systems Group, whose companies design, engineer and manufacture a wide range of proprietary and build to print components, assemblies and systems for the global aerospace OEM market; and (ii) Triumph Aftermarket Services Group, whose companies serve aircraft fleets, notably commercial airlines, the U.S. military and cargo carriers, through the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft components and accessories manufactured by third parties.

 

·                  Net sales for the first quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009 increased 17% to $320.6 million

 

·                  Operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 43% to $43.3 million

 

·                  Income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 46% to $26.0 million

 

·                  Backlog increased 4% over the first quarter of the prior year to $1.2 billion

 

·                  Income from continuing operations of $1.54 per diluted common share

 

·                  Generated $14.9 million of cash flow from operating activities

 

OUTLOOK

 

Based upon the market assumptions included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, we are reaffirming our revenue guidance and are now increasing full year earnings per share from continuing operations to be at least $5.25.  During the quarter ended June 30, 2008, several airlines have announced an intention to reduce capacity in the very near term in response to the rise in the price of oil.  This may create some mild pressure on our ability to grow sales and earnings of our Aftermarket Services segment.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

(continued)

 

Net sales increased by $45.6 million, or 16.6%, to $320.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $275.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.  The acquisition of the assets of B. & R. Machine & Tool Corp. (“B&R”), now Triumph Structures — Long Island, LLC, contributed $11.7 million of the net sales increase.  Excluding the effects of the B&R acquisition, organic sales growth was $33.9 million, or 12.3%.

 

The Aerospace Systems segment benefited primarily from increased sales to our OEM customers driven by increased aircraft build rates, while the increase in sales for our Aftermarket Services segment was the result of increased demand for our services as a result of growth in global air traffic.

 

Segment operating income increased by $13.9 million, or 38.6%, to $50.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $36.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.  Operating income growth was a direct result of margins attained on increased sales volume as described above, improved execution and the contribution of $3.5 million from the B&R acquisition, partially offset by increases in payroll, power-by-the-hour contract charges, litigation costs, depreciation and amortization, and healthcare expenses.

 

Corporate expenses increased by $0.8 million, or 14.2%, to $6.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $5.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007; however, excluding a $1.8 million insurance reimbursement related to product liability claims in the prior year quarter, corporate expenses decreased primarily due to a decline in litigation costs.

 

Interest expense and other increased by $0.2 million, or 6.9%, to $3.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 compared to $3.2 million for the prior year period.  This increase was due to amortization of debt issuance costs and seller note interest, partially offset by lower interest rates on our revolving credit facility.

 

The effective income tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 was 34.7% compared to 33.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.  The increase in the tax rate was primarily due to the expiration of the research and experimentation tax credit in December 2007. For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009, the Company expects its effective tax rate to be approximately 35%.

 

Loss from discontinued operations before income taxes was $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008, compared with a loss from discontinued operations before income taxes of $6.0 million, which included an impairment charge of $4.0 million, for the first quarter ended June 30, 2007.  The benefit for income taxes was $0.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 compared to a benefit of $2.1 million in the prior year period.

 

Business Segment Performance

 

The Aerospace Systems segment consists of the Company’s operations that manufacture products primarily for the aerospace OEM market. The Aerospace Systems segment’s operations design and engineer mechanical and electromechanical controls, such as hydraulic systems and components, main engine gearbox assemblies, accumulators and mechanical control cables. The Aerospace Systems segment’s revenues are also derived from stretch forming, die forming, milling, bonding, machining, welding and assembly and fabrication of various structural components used in aircraft wings, fuselages and other significant assemblies. Further, the segment’s operations also design and manufacture composite assemblies for floor panels, environmental control system ducts and non-structural cockpit components.  These products are sold to various aerospace OEMs on a global basis.

 

The Aftermarket Services segment consists of the Company’s operations that provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services to both commercial and military markets on components and accessories manufactured by third parties. Maintenance, repair and overhaul revenues are derived from services on auxiliary power units, airframe and engine accessories, including constant-speed drives, cabin compressors, starters and generators, and pneumatic drive units. In addition, the Aftermarket Services segment’s operations repair and

Aerospace Systems: The Aerospace Systems segment net sales increased by $41.0 million, or 18.8%, to $258.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $217.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. The increase was primarily due to increased sales to our OEM customers of $29.2 million driven by increased aircraft build rates, improved execution, increased market penetration and the additional sales associated with the acquisition of the assets and business of B. & R. Machine & Tool Corp. (now Triumph Structures – Long Island, LLC).

 

Aerospace Systems segment operating income increased by $15.7 million, or 51.9%, to $46.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $30.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. Operating income increased due to higher margins generated on increased sales volume as described above partially offset by increases in staffing, litigation, amortization expenses and increased investments in research and development costs.

 

Aftermarket Services: The Aftermarket Services segment net sales increased by $4.7 million, or 8.0%, to $63.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $58.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. This increase was due to growth in global commercial air traffic and U.S. military maintenance requirements resulting in increased demand for the repair and overhaul of auxiliary power units and the brokering of similar units.

 

Aftermarket Services segment operating income decreased by $1.8 million, or 32.1%, to $3.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $5.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.  Operating income decreased primarily due to a charge of $1.5 million related to a change in estimates used in accounting for a power-by-the-hour contract and a $1.3 million charge for the early termination of a maintenance contract partially offset by higher margins attained on increased sales volume as described above, as well as decreases in payroll and incentive compensation expenses.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

(continued)

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our working capital needs are generally funded through cash flows from operations and borrowings under our credit arrangements.  During the three months ended June 30, 2008, we generated approximately $14.9 million of cash flows in operating activities, used approximately $11.3 million in investing activities and used approximately $3.5 million in financing activities.

 

As of June 30, 2008, $154.5 million was available under our revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”).  On June 30, 2008, an aggregate amount of approximately $189.6 million was outstanding under the Credit Facility, $175.0 million of which was accruing interest at LIBOR plus applicable basis points totaling 3.4% per annum, and $14.6 million of which was accruing interest at the overnight rate of 3.3% per annum.  Amounts repaid under the Credit Facility may be reborrowed.

 

On April 18, 2008, the Company entered into a financing agreement amendment with the City of Shelbyville, Indiana related to the City of Shelbyville, Indiana Economic Development Revenue Bonds, Series 2005 (the “2005 Bonds”).  The amendment divides the original $6.3 million bond, of which $5.8 million was drawn as of April 18, 2008, into two separate bonds, a floating rate bond and a fixed rate bond that replace the original bond in its entirety.  Both bonds are due to mature on October 1, 2020.  The floating rate bond, Series 2005A, is authorized to be issued in the aggregate principal amount of $0.5 million, and bears interest at a variable rate equal to approximately ninety percent of the three-month LIBOR rate (the effective rate was 2.62% at June 30, 2008).  The proceeds of the Series 2005A Bonds of up to $0.5 million are being used to fund the expansion of one of the Company’s subsidiary’s facility. The fixed rate bond, Series 2005B, is authorized to be issued in the aggregate principal amount of $5.8 million, and bears interest at a fixed rate equal to 4.45%.

 

On April 18, 2008, the Company entered into a loan agreement with the Montgomery County Industrial Development Authority related to the Economic Development Revenue Bond, Series 2008 (the “2008 Bonds”).  The proceeds of the 2008 Bonds of up to $5.0 million are being used to fund improvements to property and equipment at one of the Company’s subsidiaries.  The 2008 Bonds are due to mature on April 18, 2023 and bear interest at a variable rate equal to approximately ninety percent of the three-month LIBOR rate (the effective rate was 2.62% at June 30, 2008).  As of June 30, 2008, $0.6 million was drawn against the 2008 bonds.

 

Effective April 2007, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with a customer relating to a long-term supply agreement (“LTSA”). The LTSA is related to the Company’s acquisition of Rolls-Royce Gear Systems, Inc., in fiscal 2004.  The Company has been producing the component parts for this LTSA at a loss since 2006 which has been reserved for through a loss contract reserve. The agreement provides for the parties to establish a transition plan that provides for the customer to re-source the component parts from other suppliers, essentially terminating the Company’s requirement to provide future deliveries of these component parts. The agreement establishes a date of no later than December 31, 2008 for completion of the re-sourcing effort. Additionally, the Company is required to make a total of four payments of $0.5 million upon successful transition of the component parts by the customer to other vendors.  A payment of $0.5 million was made in October 2007.  The Company recorded the estimated impact of this settlement in its March 31, 2007 balance sheet, which did not result in a significant adjustment to the recorded loss reserve.  As of June 30, 2008, the recorded loss reserve was $2.1 million.  If the transition is completed earlier than December 31, 2008, or the quantity, price or cost of units delivered by the Company is different than anticipated under the settlement agreement, an adjustment to the recorded loss reserve may be required. Because we cannot determine the extent of re-sourcing that may occur or the timing of the re-sourcing, we monitor progress and make appropriate adjustments, as may be necessary, to the loss contract reserve on a periodic basis.

 

Capital expenditures were approximately $11.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008, primarily for manufacturing machinery and equipment.  We funded these expenditures through cash generated from operations.  We expect capital expenditures of approximately $70.0 million for our fiscal year ending March

31, 2009.  The expenditures are expected to be used mainly to expand capacity or replace old equipment at several facilities.

(1) Included in the Company’s balance sheet at June 30, 2008.

(2) Includes fixed-rate interest only.

 

The above table excludes unrecognized tax benefits of $3.0 million as of June 30, 2008 since we cannot predict with reasonable certainty the timing of cash settlements with the respective taxing authorities.

 

The table also excludes our pension benefit obligations.  We made pension contributions of $2.7 million and $0.6 million in fiscal 2008 and 2007, respectively.  These contributions include payments related to a supplemental executive retirement plan of $2.3 million in fiscal 2008, and payments to our union pension plans of $0.4 million and $0.6 million in fiscal 2008 and 2007, respectively.  We expect to make total pension contributions of $3.2 million to our pension plans during fiscal 2009.  For further information, refer to footnote 10, “Employee Benefit Plans” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008.

 

We believe that cash generated by operations and borrowings under the Credit Facility will be sufficient to meet anticipated cash requirements for our current operations.  However, we have a stated policy to grow through acquisition and are continuously evaluating various acquisition opportunities.  As a result, we currently are pursuing the potential purchase of a number of candidates.  In the event that more than one of these transactions are successfully consummated, the availability under the Credit Facility might be fully utilized and additional funding sources, such as the sale of debt or equity securities, may be needed.  There can be no assurance that such funding sources will be available to us on terms favorable to us, if at all.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Company’s critical accounting policies are discussed in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and notes accompanying the consolidated financial statements that appear in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008. Except as otherwise disclosed in the financial statements and accompanying notes included in this report, there were no material changes subsequent to the filing of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008 in the Company’s critical accounting policies or in the assumptions or estimates used to prepare the financial information appearing in this report.

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 relating to our future operations and prospects, including statements that are based on

current projections and expectations about the markets in which we operate, and our beliefs concerning future performance and capital requirements based upon current available information.  Such statements are based on our beliefs as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to us.  When used in this document, words like “may”, “might”, “will”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “potential”, and similar expressions are intended to identify forward looking statements.  Actual results could differ materially from our current expectations.  For example, there can be no assurance that additional capital will not be required or that additional capital, if required, will be available on reasonable terms, if at all, at such times and in such amounts as may be needed by us.  In addition to these factors, among other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are uncertainties relating to the integration of acquired businesses, general economic conditions affecting our business, dependence of certain of our businesses on certain key customers as well as competitive factors relating to the aviation industry. For a more detailed discussion of these and other factors affecting us, see the risk factors described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, filed with the SEC in May 2008.

 

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

For information regarding our exposure to certain market risks, see “Item 7A.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008.  There has been no material change in this information.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

(a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

As of June 30, 2008, we completed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures.  Based on the foregoing, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of June 30, 2008.

 

(b) Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
