Hexcel Corporation (NYSE: HXL) today reported third quarter 2019 results including net sales of $572.5 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.90.

Nick Stanage, Chairman, CEO and President said: “Hexcel delivered 90 cents of adjusted diluted EPS, or growth of 12.5% compared to the third quarter of 2018. I’m especially pleased with our teams’ performance, delivering strong leverage and a 19.2% operating margin. These strong results reflect our relentless focus on continuous improvement and Operational Excellence. Our generation of Cash from Operations continued to be strong and is now $277 million YTD. As we look forward, we see further growth in our markets, tempered by the extended uncertainty for the timing of the Boeing 737 MAX return to service, which is pushing a portion of our growth originally expected in 2019 into future periods. As a result of this, combined with the continued strong dollar FX impact, we are reducing our 2019 sales guidance while maintaining our 2019 guidance for EPS, capital expenditures and free cash flow. Despite the market uncertainty related to the 737 MAX recertification timing, we are confident on delivering earnings and cash flow in line with our annual guidance and continuing to drive strong shareholder value.”

Markets

Sales for the third quarter of 2019 were $572.5 million, an increase of 5.9% (6.6% in constant currency) compared to the third quarter of 2018.

Commercial Aerospace

  • Commercial Aerospace sales of $385.9 million increased 3.4% (3.6% in constant currency) in the third quarter of 2019 as compared to the prior year period. Growth was driven by production rate increases for the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 787. Overall, growth in the quarter was impacted by the reduced demand from the Boeing 737 MAX program, with Boeing continuing to operate at a build rate of 42 planes per month.
  • Sales to “Other Commercial Aerospace” which includes regional and business aircraft were up strongly by 16.8% for the third quarter of 2019 as compared to 2018. Strong sales to certain Gulfstream programs were the primary drivers.

Space & Defense

  • Space & Defense sales of $109.8 million increased 21.5% (22.7% in constant currency) for the quarter as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Growth in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter was the primary driver in the quarter supported by other fixed-wing programs. The quarter included sales from ARC Technologies acquired in the first quarter of 2019.

Industrial

  • Total Industrial sales of $76.8 million for the third quarter of 2019 were in line with the third quarter of 2018 (+2.7% in constant currency). Wind energy sales (the largest sub-market in Industrial) increased 10.2% in constant currency compared to Q3 2018. This was a slower rate of growth than recent quarters which saw a strong growth ramp up that began in the second half of 2018. Other Industrial sales, including automotive, have a tendency to fluctuate quarter to quarter and were down in the third quarter of 2019 due to program timing.

Consolidated Operations

  • Gross margin for the third quarter of 2019 was 27.6% compared to 26.5% in the third quarter of 2018. The year-over-year improvement reflects strong operational execution combined with the decline in a number of operational headwinds incurred in 2018.
  • Operating expenses were managed tightly in the third quarter and were in line with Company expectations. Selling, General and Administrative expenses increased 5.4% in constant currency, and Research & Technology expenses increased 4.0% in constant currency.
  • Operating income in the third quarter of 2019 was $109.9 million, or 19.2% of sales, compared to $96.5 million, or 17.9% of sales, in 2018. Exchange rates, after taking hedges into account, favorably impacted the third quarter by approximately ten basis points compared to 2018.

Year-to-Date 2019 Results

Sales of $1,791.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 increased 11.2% in constant currency compared to the same period in 2018.

Commercial Aerospace (68% of YTD sales)

  • Commercial Aerospace sales of $1,217.9 million increased 7.3% in constant currency compared to the first nine months of 2018. Growth was driven by the transition to the latest generation of narrowbodies that have higher composite content as well as build rate increases for the A320neo, and the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 programs.
  • Sales to “Other Commercial Aerospace,” which include regional and business aircraft customers, increased 9.9% year to date, driven by higher business jet sales, notably Gulfstream.

Space & Defense (18% of YTD sales)

  • Space & Defense sales of $329.4 million increased 22.6% in constant currency compared to the first nine months of 2018. Strong sales for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, other fixed-wing programs, and the acquisition of ARC Technologies drove the increase.

Industrial (14% of YTD sales)

  • Total Industrial sales of $244.1 million increased 18.0% in constant currency compared to the first nine months of 2018.
  • For the first nine months of 2019, wind energy sales increased almost 40% in constant currency compared to last year.

Consolidated Operations

  • Gross margin for the first nine months of 2019 was 27.6% compared to 26.5% for the first nine months of 2018. Sustained strong operational performance drove the margin improvement year over year . Depreciation expense increased $16.3 million over the first nine months of 2018, due to continued investment for expected future growth.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2019 were approximately 9.9% higher in constant currency than the prior year to support general growth and the acquisition of ARC Technologies. Research and technology expenses for the first nine months of 2019 increased approximately 9.1% in constant currency compared to the prior 2018 period, reflecting continued investment in innovative composite products and solutions to support customers and next-generation applications.
  • Operating income in the first nine months of 2019 was $327.8 million, or 18.3% of sales, compared to $275.4 million, or 16.9% of sales, in 2018. The year-over-year impact of exchange rates was favorable by approximately 35 basis points.

Cash and Other

  • The tax provision was $18.2 million for the third quarter of 2019, reflecting an effective tax rate of 18.4%, compared to 9.1% in 2018. The third quarter of 2018 was significantly impacted by transition adjustments related to U.S. tax reform. The third quarter of 2019 benefitted primarily from tax credits identified during the quarter of $3.0 million. Excluding these benefits, the adjusted effective tax rate was 21.4% compared to 20.3% in 2018. Both periods benefited from deductions associated with share-based compensation payments. The underlying effective tax rate is expected to be 24% for the final quarter of the year.
  • Net cash generated from operating activities for the first nine months of 2019 was $277.3 million, compared to $278.4 million in the first nine months of the prior year. Capital expenditures were $162.7 million for the first nine months of 2019, compared to $150.2 million for the first nine months of 2018. Free cash flow was $114.6 million for the first nine months of 2019, compared to $128.2 million for the same period of the prior year. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided from operating activities less cash paid for capital expenditures. Working capital use YTD is $83.7 million compared to a use of $64.6 million 2018.
  • The Company used $55.7 million to repurchase shares of its common stock during the third quarter of 2019 and used $66.9 million for share repurchases in the first nine months of 2019. The Company has $318 million remaining under the authorized share repurchase program.
  • As announced today, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share. The dividend is payable to stockholders of record as of November 1, 2019, with a payment date of November 8, 2019.

2019 Guidance

  • Sales of $2.340 billion to $2.400 billion (previously $2.375 billion to $2.475 billion)
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $3.43 to $3.53 (unchanged)
  • Free cash flow greater than $250 million (unchanged)
  • Accrual basis capital expenditures of $170 million to $190 million (unchanged)

* The Company is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of our non-GAAP guidance to the corresponding GAAP information because the GAAP measures that we exclude from our non-GAAP guidance are difficult to predict and are primarily dependent on future uncertainties.

To assist in the analysis of the Company’s net sales trend, total net sales and sales by market for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 have been estimated using the same U.S. dollar, British pound and Euro exchange rates as applied for the respective period in 2019 and are referred to as “constant currency” sales.

(b)

FX effect is the estimated impact on “as reported” net sales due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

(a)

The quarter ended September 30, 2019 benefited primarily from tax credits identified during the quarter of $3.0 million. The third quarter of 2018 included discrete benefits of $9.6 million primarily related to a change in accounting method and release of a valuation allowance in a foreign jurisdiction. The nine months ended September 30, 2018 also included a discrete benefit of $1.3 million from the release of reserves for uncertain tax positions.

NOTE: Management believes that adjusted net income, adjusted diluted net income per share, the adjusted tax rate, and free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less cash payments for capital expenditures), which are non-GAAP measures, are meaningful to investors because they provide a view of Hexcel with respect to ongoing operating results excluding special items. Special items represent significant charges or credits that are important to an understanding of Hexcel’s overall operating results in the periods presented. Non-GAAP measurements are not recognized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance.
