Northrop Grumman Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results
3


Sales
Second quarter 2019 sales increased $1.3 billion primarily due to the addition of a full quarter of Innovation Systems sales as well as higher sales at Mission Systems and Aerospace Systems.
Operating Income and Margin Rate
Second quarter 2019 operating income increased $129 million, or 16 percent, primarily due to a $199 million increase in segment operating income, partially offset by a $40 million increase in unallocated corporate expense, largely due to intangible asset amortization and PP&E step-up depreciation, and a $30 million decrease in net FAS (service)/CAS pension adjustment. Operating margin rate declined to 11.2 percent from 11.5 percent primarily due to higher intangible asset amortization and PP&E step-up depreciation, partially offset by improved segment performance.
Segment Operating Income and Margin Rate
Second quarter 2019 segment operating income increased $199 million, or 26 percent, due to higher operating income at all four sectors, including a full quarter of operating income from Innovation Systems. Segment operating margin rate increased to 11.6 percent from 10.9 percent largely due to improved performance at Mission Systems and Technology Services. In addition, segment operating income and margin rate benefited from cost synergies realized in connection with the 2018 acquisition of Orbital ATK.
Federal and Foreign Income Taxes
The second quarter 2019 effective tax rate decreased to 16.2 percent from 19.2 percent in the second quarter of 2018 primarily due to higher research credits.
Net Earnings
Second quarter 2019 net earnings increased $72 million primarily due to higher operating income and a lower effective tax rate, partially offset by a $58 million decrease in FAS (non-service) pension benefit and a $26 million decrease in other, net, principally due to lower interest income.
Operating Cash Flows
Second quarter 2019 cash provided by operating activities increased $732 million to $1.6 billion principally due to improved trade working capital, including recovery of receivables delayed by the ERP conversion discussed in the first quarter of 2019, and higher net earnings. After capital expenditures of $252 million, second quarter 2019 free cash flow was $1.4 billion.
Year to date 2019 cash provided by operating activities increased $56 million principally due to higher net earnings, partially offset by an increase in trade working capital.
Awards and Backlog
Second quarter and year to date 2019 net awards totaled $13.5 billion and $25.8 billion, respectively, and backlog increased to $63.0 billion as of June 30, 2019. Significant new awards in the second quarter include $4.1 billion for the F-35 program, $3.6 billion to deliver an additional 24 E-2D Advance Hawkeye aircraft and related equipment to the U.S. Navy, $843 million for space restricted programs, $316 million for the Global Hawk program and $265 million for the Intermediate Range Conventional Prompt Strike hypersonic program.

Operating Income
Second quarter 2019 operating income totaled $169 million and operating margin rate was 11.3 percent.

Sales
Second quarter 2019 sales were comparable to the second quarter of 2018, and reflect lower Global Services sales, principally due to the completion in 2018 of a state and local services contract, offset by higher Global Logistics and Modernization volume.
Operating Income
Second quarter 2019 operating income increased $18 million, or 19 percent, and operating margin rate increased to 10.8 percent from 9.1 percent primarily due to improved performance on Global Services programs and the absence in 2019 of a negative EAC adjustment recognized on a state and local services contract in the prior year period.

Northrop Grumman Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Disclosure: This earnings release contains non-GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) financial measures, as defined by SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) Regulation G and indicated by a footnote in the text of the release. Definitions for the non-GAAP measures are provided below and reconciliations are provided in the body of the release. Other companies may define these measures differently or may utilize different non-GAAP measures.
Segment operating income and segment operating margin rate: Segment operating income, as reconciled in the “Consolidated Operating Results and Cash Flows” table within the body of this release, and segment operating margin rate (segment operating income divided by sales) reflect total earnings from our four segments, including allocated pension expense recognized under CAS, and excluding unallocated corporate items and FAS pension expense. These measures may be useful to investors and other users of our financial statements as supplemental measures in evaluating the financial performance and operational trends of our sectors. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to operating results presented in accordance with GAAP.
Free cash flow: Net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. We use free cash flow as a key factor in our planning for, and consideration of, acquisitions, stock repurchases and the payment of dividends. This measure may be useful to investors and other users of our financial statements as a supplemental measure of our cash performance, but should not be considered in isolation, as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to operating cash flows presented in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow is reconciled in the “Consolidated Operating Results and Cash Flows” table within the body of this release.
MTM-adjusted diluted EPS: Diluted earnings per share excluding the per share impact of any potential mark-to-market ("MTM") (expense) benefit and related tax impacts. This measure may be useful to investors and other users of our financial statements as a supplemental measure in evaluating the company’s underlying financial performance per share by presenting the company’s diluted earnings per share results before the non-operational impact of pension and OPB actuarial gains and losses.
