CAE reports second quarter financial results for fiscal year

CAE reports second quarter financial results for fiscal year 2013 
- Revenue of C$514.4 million compared to C$433.5 million in prior
year  
- Net income attributable to equity holders of C$36.5 million
compared to C$38.4 million in prior year  
- Book-to-sales ratio of 1.15x and $3.91 billion order backlog  
- Announcing additional restructuring of European military operations 
MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- (NYSE:CAE)(TSX:CAE) -
CAE today reported financial results for the second quarter ended
September 30, 2012. Net income attributable to equity holders was
$36.5 million ($0.14 per share) this quarter, compared to $38.4
million ($0.15 per share) last year. All financial information is in
Canadian dollars. 
Excluding the $9.8 million pre-tax impact of restructuring,
integration and acquisition costs this quarter, net income
attributable to equity holders was $43.5 million ($0.17 per share).
In the second quarter last year, before acquisition and integration
charges of $8.4 million pre-tax, net income attributable to equity
holders was $41.1 million ($0.16 per share). 
Also included in this quarter's financial results were other
non-recurring gains including $8.3 million pre-tax in foreign
exchange gains and a $5.0 million pre-tax gain on the expiry and
reversal of contingent liability related to a prior acquisition. Of
these amounts, $7.7 million is attributed to Military and $5.6
million to Civil. 
Revenue for the quarter was $514.4 million, 19% higher than $433.5
million last year.  
"During the quarter, we recorded strong order bookings for simulators
in Civil and added more long-term recurring training services in
Military," said Marc Parent, CAE's President and Chief Executive
Officer. "However our results were impacted in Civil training by a
slower than usual summer and the ongoing integration of Oxford. In
Military, we have been restructuring our European operations
headquartered in Germany to adapt to lower demand, but this has not
kept pace with the drop in new orders in that country. The resulting
lower revenue and profit in that region during the quarter negated
otherwise good performance in the rest of the business. In light of
the clarity we now have about the magnitude of the expected
restructuring of the German armed fo
rces, we are undertaking
additional restructuring estimated to cost $15 million to right-size
our operations for current and anticipated contracts."  
Looking forward, Parent added, "With very strong Military bid
activity by CAE currently underway, we remain confident in the
long-term growth and profitability of CAE's Military business. We
have signed several multi-year services contracts this year but these
translate to revenue over a longer period of time than products
sales. As a result of this, and our actions underway in Europe, we
now expect Military revenue to decline slightly this year. We expect
Military margins to begin recovering toward the latter part of the
year. In Civil, we are already experiencing a stronger performance in
training as we head into the second half of the year and we expect
this to continue. In civil products, with 19 simulator sales
announced so far, we are tracking our expectation for sales in the
mid-30s."

Civil segments  
Revenue for our combined Civil segments increased 36% in the second
quarter to $288.0 million compared to $211.7 million last year.
Second quarter operating income was $46.2 million (16.0% of revenue)
compared to $42.3 million (20.0% of revenue) last year. This
quarter's results include the recently acquired Oxford Aviation
Academy (Oxford), which is being integrated with CAE's existing
operations to realize significant ongoing cost and revenue synergies. 
Civil training results were seasonally lower than usual during the
summer months and were further impacted by some disruption from our
ongoing integration of Oxford with our existing operations. Demand
for products continued to be robust with 12 full-flight simulator
orders booked in the second quarter for customers mainly in Asia.
During the quarter, we also obtained training services contracts
expected to generate $179.3 million in future revenue. These include
a long term agreement with easyjet in Europe, making CAE its
preferred training supplier, and an exclusive multi-year contract
with an airline in South America.  
We received $302.7 million in combined civil segment orders this
quarter representing a book-to-sales ratio of 1.05x. The ratio for
the trailing 12 months was 1.10x.

Additional financial highlights  
Income taxes this quarter were $12.5 million representing an
effective tax rate of 25%, compared to 21% last year. The tax rate
was lower in the second quarter last year due to the recognition of
certain tax assets.  
Free cash flow(3) was positive $17.7 million this quarter. The
increase from last quarter was mainly attributable to favourable
changes in non-cash working capital and more cash provided by
operating activities. The decrease from the second quarter of fiscal
2012 was mainly attributable to unfavourable changes in non-cash
working capital, partially offset by more cash provided by operating
activities.  
Capital expenditures totalled $44.0 million this quarter, including
$33.4 million in growth capital expenditures and $10.6 million for
maintenance.  
Net debt(4) was $994.8 million compared with $988.9 million as at
June 30, 2012.  
CAE will pay a dividend of $0.05 per share effective December 31,
2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December
14, 2012.

Notes 


 
1.  Operating profit is non-GAAP measure that shows us how we have performed
    before the effects of certain financing decisions and tax structures. We
    track operating profit because we believe it makes it easier to compare
    our performance with previous periods, and with companies and industries
    that do not have the same capital structure or tax laws. 
 
2.  Backlog is a non-GAAP measure that represents the expected value of
    orders we have received but have not yet executed. 
 
3.  Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that shows us how much cash we have
    available to build the business, repay debt and meet ongoing financial
    obligations. We use it as an indicator of our financial strength and
    liquidity. We calculate it by taking the net cash generated by our
    continuing operating activities, subtracting maintenance capital
    expenditures, other assets not related to growth and dividends paid and
    adding proceeds from disposal of property, plant and equipment. 
 
4.  Net debt is a non-GAAP measure we use to monitor how much debt we have
    after taking into account liquid assets such as cash and cash
    equivalents. We use it as an indicator of our overall financial
    position, and calculate it by taking our total long-term debt, including
    the current portion of long-term debt, and subtracting cash and cash
    equivalents.
