Teledyne Technologies Reports Second Quarter Results

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) —

Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY):

  • Second quarter sales from continuing operations of $534.9 million
  • Second quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $1.32
  • Results include pretax charges of $10.8 million ($0.22 per share) for severance, facility consolidations and asset impairments, offset by a pretax gain of $17.9 million ($0.32 per share) on the sale of real estate no longer needed as a result of prior facility consolidations
  • Raising full year 2016 GAAP earnings outlook from continuing operations to $5.10 to $5.20, an increase from the prior outlook of $5.05 to $5.15
  • Completed three previously announced acquisitions
  • Divested the Teledyne Printed Circuit Technology business

Teledyne today reported second quarter 2016 sales from continuing operations of $534.9 million, compared with sales from continuing operations of $573.6 million for the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of 6.7%. Net income from continuing operations was $46.1 million ($1.32 per diluted share) for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $48.4 million ($1.34 per diluted share) for the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of 4.8%. Net income attributable to Teledyne was $45.7 million ($1.31 per diluted share) for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $48.3 million ($1.34 per diluted share) for the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of 5.4%.

“In the second quarter, we achieved strong organic growth in our imaging and aerospace and defense electronics segments. Sales of electronic test and measurement and environmental instrumentation also increased,” said Robert Mehrabian, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of prior cost reduction actions, operating margin for our aerospace and defense electronics segment improved significantly and was a record. Similar aggressive cost reduction efforts in the second quarter were primarily focused within our marine instrumentation businesses and should result in improved margins in the future. Finally, we continued to improve our business portfolio, acquiring two electronics and one software company, while divesting a lower margin contract manufacturing business.”

Review of Operations (Comparisons are with the second quarter of 2015, unless noted otherwise.) The results reflect the classification of our Printed Circuit Technology business as a discontinued operation which was sold in the third quarter on July 8, 2016 for $9.3 million in cash. The Printed Circuit Technology business was previously reported as part of the Aerospace and Defense Electronics segment.

Second Quarter Activity

During 2016, as part of a continuing effort to reduce costs and improve operating performance we took actions to consolidate and relocate certain facilities and reduce headcount across various businesses, reducing our exposure to weak end markets and high cost locations. In connection with these efforts, in the second quarter of 2016, we incurred pretax charges totaling $10.8 million for severance, facility consolidation and asset impairment expense. The charges were comprised of $5.8 million in severance related costs, $4.4 million in facility closure and relocation expense and $0.6 million in asset impairment expense. While the majority of these actions have been completed, Teledyne will continue to incur severance and facility consolidation expenses during the remainder of 2016. We incurred $2.1 million of similar expenses in the second quarter of 2015, partially offset by the reversal of reserves of $1.7 million that were no longer needed. In addition, in the second quarter of 2016 we completed the sale of a former operating facility located in California whose operations were consolidated with another facility. The pretax gain on this sale was $17.9 million and is included in other income. In the second quarter of 2015, other income included a gain on a legal settlement of $3.0 million. Also in the second quarter of 2016, we completed the acquisitions of two test and measurement instrumentation companies and one imaging software company for initial aggregate cash consideration of approximately $60.0 million.

Instrumentation

The Instrumentation segment’s second quarter 2016 sales were $220.1 million, compared with $271.3 million, a decrease of 18.9%. Second quarter 2016 operating income was $20.1 million, compared with $45.7 million, a decrease of 56.0%.

The second quarter 2016 sales decrease primarily resulted from lower sales of marine instrumentation partially offset by increased sales of electronic test and measurement instrumentation. Sales for marine instrumentation decreased by $58.0 million and primarily reflected lower sales of interconnect systems and other marine sensors for energy exploration and production, partially offset by higher sales of interconnects and marine systems for U.S. Government applications. Sales of electronic test and measurement instrumentation increased $6.6 million and included $5.5 million in incremental sales from recent acquisitions. Sales of environmental instrumentation increased $0.2 million. The decrease in operating income reflected the impact of lower sales and lower margins for marine instrumentation and higher severance and facility consolidation costs. The second quarter of 2016 reflected $7.4 million in higher severance and facility consolidation and asset impairment costs, compared with the second quarter of 2015.

Digital Imaging

The Digital Imaging segment’s second quarter 2016 sales were $99.4 million, compared with $90.8 million, an increase of 9.5%. Operating income was $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $8.8 million, an increase of 21.6%.

The second quarter 2016 sales primarily reflected higher sales of sensors and systems for life sciences and industrial X-ray applications, as well as laser-based mapping systems and geospatial software. Sales of micro electro-mechanical systems (“MEMS”) also increased. The second quarter 2016 sales included $2.9 million in incremental sales from recent acquisitions. The increase in operating income in 2016 reflected the impact of higher sales and favorable product mix differences, partially offset by $1.4 million in higher severance and facility consolidation costs, compared with the second quarter of 2015.

Aerospace and Defense Electronics

The Aerospace and Defense Electronics segment’s second quarter 2016 sales were $153.2 million, compared with $142.9 million, an increase of 7.2%. Operating income was $28.7 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $20.8 million, an increase of 38.0%.

The second quarter 2016 sales reflected higher sales of $6.1 million of microwave and interconnect systems and $4.3 million of avionics products and electronic relays, and flat sales of electronic manufacturing services products. Operating income in the second quarter of 2016 reflected the impact of higher sales, as well as overall improved margins. The 2015 second quarter reflected the reversal of facility and consolidation reserves of $1.7 million that were no longer needed.

Engineered Systems

The Engineered Systems segment’s second quarter 2016 sales were $62.2 million compared with $68.6 million, a decrease of 9.3%. Operating income was $5.6 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $4.8 million, an increase of 16.7%.

The second quarter 2016 sales reflected lower sales of engineered products and services of $4.0 million, lower sales of energy systems products of $1.8 million, and lower turbine engine sales of $0.6 million. The lower sales of engineered products and services primarily resulted from decreased sales of space and missile defense programs. Operating income in the second quarter of 2016 reflected improved margins for engineered products and services and higher pension income of $0.7 million, partially offset by the impact of lower sales.

Additional Financial Information

Cash Flow

Cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $83.2 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $57.9 million. The higher cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of 2016 reflected lower income tax payments, partially offset by higher payments for severance, facility closure and relocation costs and lower net income. The second quarter of 2015 amount included the receipt of $3.0 million related to a legal settlement. Free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations less capital expenditures) was $66.9 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with $44.5 million and reflected higher cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by higher capital expenditures. At July 3, 2016, total debt, including capital lease obligations, was $693.0 million, which included $75.6 million outstanding under the $750.0 million credit facility. Cash totaled $71.7 million at July 3, 2016 and excludes $19.5 million in restricted cash resulting from the recent real estate sale transaction related to a potential Section 1031 like-kind exchange. The company received $7.0 million from the exercise of stock options in the second quarter of 2016, compared with $8.1 million. Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2016 were $16.3 million, compared with $13.4 million. Depreciation and amortization expense for the second quarter of 2016 was $21.6 million, compared with $22.7 million. In the second quarter of 2016, Teledyne completed the acquisitions of two test and measurement instrumentation companies and one imaging software company for initial aggregate cash consideration of approximately $60.0 million, of which approximately half was funded with foreign cash balances. In addition, in the third quarter of 2016, Teledyne completed the sale of assets of Teledyne’s Printed Circuit Technology business for $9.3 million in cash.

While the company’s growth strategy includes possible acquisitions, we cannot provide any assurance as to when, if or on what terms any acquisitions will be made. Acquisitions involve various inherent risks, such as, among others, our ability to integrate acquired businesses, retain customers and achieve identified financial and operating synergies. There are additional risks associated with acquiring, owning and operating businesses internationally, including those arising from U.S. and foreign policy changes and exchange rate fluctuations.

While the company believes its internal and disclosure control systems are effective, there are inherent limitations in all control systems, and misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and may not be detected.

Readers are urged to read the company’s periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for a more complete description of the company, its businesses, its strategies and the various risks that the company faces.
