Companies mentioned in this article: Lockheed Martin

BETHESDA, Md., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) today reported second quarter 2014 net sales of $11.3 billion, compared to $11.4 billion in the second quarter of 2013. Net earnings in the second quarter of 2014 were $889 million, or $2.76 per diluted share, compared to $859 million, or $2.64 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. Cash from operations in the second quarter of 2014 was $977 million, compared to cash from operations of $623 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Second quarter 2014 net earnings included FAS/CAS pension income of $85 million, which increased net earnings by $53 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to FAS/CAS pension expense of $120 million, which reduced net earnings by $74 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 financial results were not impacted by amendments to certain of the Corporation's defined benefit pension plans as discussed later in this news release.

"Based on our solid program execution and operational performance through the first half of the year, we increased our 2014 financial guidance for profit, earnings, and cash flow," said Lockheed Martin Chairman, President and CEO Marillyn Hewson. "Our sound strategy, diverse portfolio and focus on affordability are yielding results and delivering value to our customers and shareholders."

    (1) The Corporation's updated financial outlook for FAS/CAS pension income reflects an increase of $100 million for

    the second half of 2014. The increase is due to amendments to freeze certain defined benefit pension plans,

    partially offset by the incorporation of the new participant longevity assumptions, a reduction in the discount rate

    from 4.75% to 4.25% and changes in other actuarial assumptions.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

Pension Re-measurements

As previously announced in a Form 8-K filed on July 1, 2014 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Corporation amended certain of its defined benefit pension plans for non-union employees to freeze future retirement benefits and will transition employees to an enhanced defined contribution retirement savings plan. The freeze will take effect in two stages. Beginning on Jan. 1, 2016, the pay-based component of the formula used to determine retirement benefits will be frozen and on Jan. 1, 2020 the service-based component of the formula used to determine retirement benefits will be frozen so that participants will no longer earn further credited service. When the freeze is complete, the majority of the Corporation's salaried employees will have transitioned to an enhanced defined contribution retirement savings plan.

As a result of these plan amendments, the Corporation was required to re-measure the assets and benefit obligations for the affected defined benefit pension plans in accordance with GAAP in the second quarter of 2014. The Corporation's re-measurements reflect the use of updated assumptions, including participant longevity (also known as mortality) and the discount rate. Recent actuarial studies indicate life expectancies are longer and have the resultant effect of increasing the total expected benefit payments to plan participants. The Corporation also elected to re-measure the assets and benefit obligations of substantially all other defined benefit pension plans in the second quarter of 2014. The assumptions the Corporation makes affect both the calculation of the benefit obligations as of the measurement date and the calculation of net periodic benefit cost in subsequent periods. The re-measurements did not impact the Corporation's operating results for the second quarter of 2014. The net increase in the defined benefit pension obligations will be amortized into earnings as a component of net periodic benefit cost in future periods combined with reduced service and interest costs beginning in the third quarter of 2014.

Cash Deployment Activities

The Corporation's cash deployment activities in the second quarters of 2014 and 2013 consisted of the following:

    --  making contributions to its pension trust of $515 million during the
        second quarter of 2014, compared to $750 million during the second
        quarter of 2013;
    --  paying cash dividends of $421 million during the second quarter of 2014,
        compared to $371 million during the second quarter of 2013;
    --  making capital expenditures of $150 million during the second quarter of
        2014, compared to $176 million during the second quarter of 2013; and
    --  repurchasing 0.8 million shares for $124 million during the second
        quarter of 2014, compared to 4.5 million shares for $465 million during
        the second quarter of 2013.  The Corporation ceased discretionary share
        repurchases while it was considering amendments to certain of its
        defined benefit pension plans.  The Corporation's balanced cash
        deployment strategy has not changed and, accordingly, the Corporation
        anticipates resuming discretionary share repurchases in the third
        quarter of 2014.

Segment Results

The Corporation operates in five business segments: Aeronautics, Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS), Missiles and Fire Control (MFC), Mission Systems and Training (MST), and Space Systems. The Corporation organizes its business segments based on the nature of the products and services offered.

Operating profit for the business segments includes the Corporation's share of earnings or losses from equity method investees because the operating activities of the equity method investees are closely aligned with the operations of the Corporation's business segments. United Launch Alliance (ULA), which is part of the Space Systems business segment, is the Corporation's primary equity method investee. Operating profit of the Corporation's business segments excludes the FAS/CAS pension adjustment, which represents the difference between total pension expense recorded in accordance with GAAP (FAS) and pension costs recoverable on U.S. Government contracts as determined in accordance with U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (CAS); expense for stock-based compensation; the effects of items not considered part of management's evaluation of segment operating performance, such as charges related to significant severance actions and goodwill impairments; gains or losses from divestitures; the effects of certain legal settlements; corporate costs not allocated to the Corporation's business segments; and other miscellaneous corporate activities.

Changes in net sales and operating profit generally are expressed in terms of volume. Changes in volume refer to increases or decreases in sales or operating profit resulting from varying production activity levels, deliveries, or service levels on individual contracts. Volume changes in segment operating profit are typically based on the current profit booking rate for a particular contract.

In addition, comparability of the Corporation's segment sales, operating profit, and operating margins may be impacted by changes in profit booking rates on the Corporation's contracts accounted for using the percentage-of-completion method of accounting. Increases in the profit booking rates, typically referred to as risk retirements, usually relate to revisions in the estimated total costs that reflect improved conditions on a particular contract. Conversely, conditions on a particular contract may deteriorate resulting in an increase in the estimated total costs to complete and a reduction of the profit booking rate. Increases or decreases in profit booking rates are recognized in the current period and reflect the inception-to-date effect of such changes. Segment operating profit and margins may also be impacted, favorably or unfavorably, by other items. Favorable items may include the positive resolution of contractual matters, cost recoveries on restructuring charges, and insurance recoveries. Unfavorable items may include the adverse resolution of contractual matters; restructuring charges, except for significant severance actions which are excluded from segment operating results; reserves for disputes; and significant asset impairments. Segment operating profit and items such as risk retirements, reductions of profit booking rates, or other matters are presented net of state income taxes.

The following table presents summary operating results of the Corporation's five business segments and reconciles these amounts to the Corporation's consolidated financial results.

Aeronautics' net sales for the second quarter of 2014 increased $448 million, or 13 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of about $210 million for F-35 production contracts due to increased volume; approximately $85 million for the F-35 development contract due to an adjustment recorded during the second quarter of 2013 to reflect the inception-to-date impact of the downward revision to the profit booking rate that was not repeated in 2014; about $75 million for the C-130 program due to increased aircraft deliveries (six aircraft delivered in the second quarter of 2014 compared to five delivered during the same period in 2013) and aircraft contract mix, partially offset by decreased sustainment activities; approximately $45 million for the C-5 program due to increased aircraft deliveries (two aircraft delivered in the second quarter of 2014 compared to one delivered during the same period in 2013), partially offset by decreased support and spares activities; and approximately $40 million for the F-22 program due to increased risk retirements and volume. Net sales for the F-16 program were comparable as aircraft contract mix was offset by increased sustainment activities.

Aeronautics' operating profit for the second quarter of 2014 increased $46 million, or 11 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to higher operating profit of about $35 million for the F-22 program due to increased risk retirements; approximately $25 million for the C-130 program due primarily to aircraft contract mix; and about $85 million for the F-35 development contract due to the adjustment mentioned above recorded during the second quarter of 2013. The increases were partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $80 million for the F-16 program due to decreased risk retirements and aircraft contract mix; and about $15 million for various other programs due to lower risk retirements. Operating profit was comparable for F-35 production contracts, as increased volume was offset by lower risk retirements. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, for the second quarter of 2014 were comparable to the same period in 2013.

IS&GS' net sales for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $160 million, or 8 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of approximately $175 million due to the wind-down or completion of certain programs (primarily command and control programs); and about $150 million due to a decline in volume for various programs, which reflects lower funding levels and programs impacted by in-theater force reductions (such as Persistent Threat Detection System). The decreases were partially offset by higher net sales of about $165 million due to the start-up of new programs, growth in recently awarded programs and integration of recently acquired companies.

IS&GS' operating profit for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $19 million, or 10 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to the activities mentioned above for sales.

MFC's net sales for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $152 million, or 7 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of approximately $125 million for various technical services programs due to lower volume; and approximately $125 million for tactical missiles programs due to fewer deliveries (including High Mobility Artillery Rocket System). These decreases were partially offset by higher net sales of about $55 million for fire control programs (primarily Apache due to increased deliveries and Special Operations Forces Contractor Logistical Support Services due to higher volume); and approximately $25 million for air and missile defense programs (primarily Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense due to higher volume, partially offset by Patriot Advanced Capability-3 due to fewer deliveries).

MFC's operating profit for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $36 million, or 9 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower operating profit of approximately $35 million for tactical missile programs due to fewer deliveries and net warranty reserve adjustments for various programs (including Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile and Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System). Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments and other matters, were approximately $35 million lower for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.

MST's net sales for the second quarter of 2014 were comparable to the same period in 2013. Net sales increased approximately $50 million for integrated warfare systems and sensors programs primarily due to increased deliveries for radar programs and increased volume and risk retirements for the Aegis program. The increase was offset by lower net sales of approximately $30 million for the settlements of contract cost matters on certain programs during the second quarter of 2013 (including a portion of the terminated presidential helicopter program) that were not repeated in 2014; and about $15 million for various other programs due to lower volume.

MST's operating profit for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $90 million, or 33 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower operating profit of approximately $75 million due to the settlements of contract cost matters on certain programs during the second quarter of 2013 (including a portion of the terminated presidential helicopter program) that were not repeated in 2014; and about $50 million for reserves recorded on certain training and logistics solutions programs. The decreases were partially offset by higher operating profit of about $30 million due to increased risk retirements on MH-60 and combat systems programs. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments and other matters, were approximately $80 million lower for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.

Space Systems' net sales for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $239 million, or 11 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of about $205 million for government satellite programs due to lower volume (primarily Advanced Extremely High Frequency and Mobile User Objective System (MUOS)).

Space Systems' operating profit for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $28 million, or 10 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower operating profit of approximately $30 million for government satellite programs due to lower risk retirements and volume (primarily Space Based Infrared System and MUOS). The decrease was partially offset by higher operating profit of about $10 million due to higher equity earnings and other program activities. Adjustments not related to volume, including net profit booking rate adjustments, were approximately $25 million lower for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.

Total equity earnings (primarily ULA) recognized by Space Systems represented approximately $80 million, or 32 percent, of this business segment's operating profit for the second quarter of 2014, compared to approximately $75 million, or 27 percent, for the second quarter of 2013.

Income Taxes

The Corporation's effective income tax rates were 33.7% and 29.1% for the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The rates for both periods benefited from tax deductions for U.S. manufacturing activities and for dividends paid to the Corporation's defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2014 was higher primarily due to tax reserve adjustments recorded in the second quarter of 2014 and the benefit of research and development tax credits recognized in the second quarter of 2013, which expired on Dec. 31, 2013 and, therefore, will not be recognized in 2014 unless and until legislation is enacted.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements that, to the extent they are not recitations of historical fact, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, and are based on Lockheed Martin's current expectations and assumptions. The words "believe," "estimate," "anticipate," "project," "intend," "expect," "plan," "outlook," "scheduled," "forecast," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially due to factors such as:

    --  the availability of funding for the Corporation's products and services
        both domestically and internationally due to general economic
        conditions, performance, cost, or other factors;
    --  the Corporation's dependence on U.S. Government contracts (e.g., the
        F-35 program);
    --  changes in domestic and international customer priorities and
        requirements (including declining budgets resulting from general
        economic conditions; affordability initiatives; the potential for
        deferral or termination of awards; the implementation of automatic
        sequestration under the Budget Control Act of 2011 or Congressional
        actions intended to replace sequestration; U.S. Government operations
        under a future continuing resolution; or any future shutdown of U.S.
        Government operations) and the success of the Corporation's strategy to
        mitigate some of these risks by focusing on expanding into adjacent
        markets close to the Corporation's core capabilities and growing
        international sales;
    --  the accuracy of the Corporation's estimates and assumptions including
        those as to schedule, cost, technical, and performance issues under its
        contracts, cash flow, actual returns (or losses) on pension plan assets,
        movements in interest rates, and other changes that may affect pension
        plan assumptions;
    --  the effect of capitalization changes (such as share repurchase activity,
        accelerated pension funding, stock option exercises, or debt levels);
    --  difficulties in developing and producing operationally advanced
        technology systems, cyber security or other security threats,
        information technology failures, natural disasters, public health crises
        or other disruptions;
    --  the timing and customer acceptance of product deliveries;
    --  materials availability and the performance of key suppliers, teammates,
        venture partners, subcontractors, and customers;
    --  charges from any future impairment reviews that may result in the
        recognition of losses and a reduction in the book value of goodwill or
        other long-term assets;
    --  the future effect of legislation, rulemaking, and changes in accounting,
        tax, defense procurement, changes in policy, interpretations, or
        challenges to the allowability and recovery of costs incurred under
        government cost accounting standards, export policy, changes in
        contracting policy and contract mix;
    --  the future impact of acquisitions or divestitures, ventures, teaming
        arrangements, or internal reorganizations;
    --  compliance with laws and regulations, the outcome of legal proceedings
        and other contingencies (including lawsuits, government investigations
        or audits, and the cost of completing environmental remediation
        efforts), and U.S. Government identification of deficiencies in the
        Corporation's business systems;
    --  the competitive environment for the Corporation's products and services,
        export policies, and potential for delays in procurement due to bid
        protests;
    --  the Corporation's efforts to increase the efficiency of its operations
        and improve the affordability of its products and services including
        difficulties associated with moving or consolidating operations;
        providing for the orderly transition of management; attracting and
        retaining key personnel or the transfer of critical knowledge to the
        extent the Corporation loses key personnel through wage competition,
        normal attrition (including retirement), and specific actions such as
        workforce reductions; and supply chain management; and
    --  economic, business, and political conditions domestically and
        internationally (including potential impacts resulting from the
        continuing tension between the international community and Russia over
        Ukraine) and the Corporation's increased reliance on securing
        international and adjacent business.

These are only some of the factors that may affect the forward-looking statements contained in this news release. For a discussion identifying additional important factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, see the Corporation's filings with the SEC including, but not limited to, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Risk Factors" in the Corporation's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013 and its 2014 quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. The Corporation's filings may be accessed through the Investor Relations page of its website, www.lockheedmartin.com/investor, or through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

The Corporation's actual financial results likely will be different from those projected due to the inherent nature of projections. Given these uncertainties, the forward-looking statements should not be relied on in making investment decisions. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as of the date of its filing. Except where required by applicable law, the Corporation expressly disclaims a duty to provide updates to forward-looking statements after the date of this news release to reflect subsequent events, changed circumstances, changes in expectations, or the estimates and assumptions associated with them. The forward-looking statements in this news release are intended to be subject to the safe harbor protection provided by the federal securities laws.

    (1)  The Corporation recognized a non-cash, after-tax decrease to stockholders' equity of $735 million, as a result of the re-measurements of the assets and benefit

       obligations of substantially all of its defined benefit pension plans in the second quarter of 2014.  This decrease primarily was due to incorporation of the new participant

       longevity assumptions (also known as mortality), a reduction in the discount rate from 4.75% at Dec. 31, 2013 to 4.25% at the re-measurement date and other assumptions,

       partially offset by the impact of amendments to freeze certain of the Corporation's defined benefit pension plans for non-union employees.  Partially offsetting the

       re-measurement decrease, was an increase of $334 million related to the recognition of previously deferred amounts.


    (2)  Represents dividends of $1.33 per share declared during each of the first and second quarters of 2014.  Additionally, includes dividends of $1.33 per share

       declared in the second quarter of 2014 and payable in the third quarter of 2014.
