Harris Corporation Reports Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Results

2Q17 CapRock current and prior period results reported as discontinued operations

--2Q17 operating cash flow $252 million; free cash flow $224 million

3Q17 announcement of definitive agreement to sell government IT services business for $690 million and approval of new $1.0 billion share repurchase authorization

Fiscal 2017 guidance updated to reflect both CapRock and government IT services in discontinued operations

Harris Corporation (HRS) reported revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 of $1.70 billion compared with $1.75 billion in the prior year, down 3 percent. GAAP income from continuing operations was $168 million, or $1.33 per diluted share, compared with $197 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, in the prior year. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations, excluding Exelis acquisition-related items, was $178 million, or $1.42 per diluted share, compared with $184 million, or $1.47 per diluted share, excluding Exelis acquisition-related items, restructuring and other charges in the prior year. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the tables.

Beginning with the second quarter of fiscal 2017, CapRock’s current and prior period financial results are reported as discontinued operations. In connection with Harris’ recently announced agreement to sell its government IT services business, current and prior period financial results for government IT services will be reported as discontinued operations beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2017.

"Second quarter performance was highlighted by operating margin expansion, continued growth in long-cycle program businesses, and another quarter of rising legacy tactical radio backlog," said William M. Brown, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

"In January, we completed the sale of CapRock and announced our latest portfolio shaping action, the sale of government IT services. These divestitures further sharpen our focus on growing Harris’ core franchises where we have a technology advantage to deliver compelling value to our customers. Proceeds from the transactions will be used to support our capital allocation strategy, including paying down debt, pre-funding pension and returning cash to shareholders."

Also following the close of the quarter, the Harris board approved a new $1.0 billion share repurchase authorization. This new authorization is in addition to the remaining unused authorization of $584 million under the company’s existing repurchase program. The company now expects fiscal 2017 share repurchases to total $700 million.

Communication Systems

Communication Systems segment revenue in the second quarter was $413 million, down 16 percent compared with the prior year. Tactical Communications revenue was $310 million, down 19 percent due to expected lower international tactical sales, but strong international orders drove legacy tactical backlog higher. Public Safety revenue was $103 million, down 5 percent on weak orders. Segment operating income was $121 million compared with $121 million GAAP and $138 million non-GAAP, excluding restructuring and other charges, in the prior year. The decline primarily resulted from lower volume, but operating margin trended higher due to lower costs.

Tactical radio orders in the quarter included $75 million from a country in Eastern Europe, $19 million from Iraq, $16 million from a country in the Middle East, $10 million from the UAE, and $18 million from a country in Central Asia. Public Safety orders included $12 million from Consumers Energy, a large public utility in Michigan.

Following the close of the quarter, Harris was awarded a $56 million tactical radio order from a country in Northern Africa and a 5-year, $403 million, single-award IDIQ contract from the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency to provide tactical radio spares to the U.S. Army and federal civilian agencies.

Space and Intelligence Systems

Space and Intelligence Systems segment revenue in the second quarter was $468 million, up 5 percent compared with the prior year, primarily driven by higher revenue from intelligence community customers. Segment operating income was $77 million compared with $68 million in the prior year, reflecting continued strong program performance and higher pension income.

Harris was awarded follow-on contracts, including $53 million and $29 million from a classified customer to provide counter-communication capabilities and situational awareness to support space asset protection. Harris also received a 31/2-year, $90 million follow-on contract to provide navigation payloads for the Air Force’s ninth and tenth GPS III satellites and a contract from an undisclosed customer to provide unfurlable antenna reflectors for commercial satellites.

Following the close of the quarter, Harris was awarded a 11/2-year, $80 million contract from a new classified customer in an adjacent mission area.

Electronic Systems

Electronic Systems segment revenue in the second quarter was $384 million, up 1 percent compared with the prior year. Revenue was up 6 percent on an organic basis, excluding $18 million of prior-year revenue attributable to the divested Aerostructures business. On an organic basis, higher revenue from electronic warfare solutions and the recent integrated battle management system win in the Middle East was partially offset by lower wireless products sales. Segment operating income was $79 million compared with $63 million GAAP and $69 million non-GAAP, excluding restructuring and other charges, in the prior year, reflecting continued strong program performance and higher pension income.

Harris was awarded a 2-year, $91 million, single-award IDIQ contract from the U.S. Air Force to deliver electronic warfare pods on Moroccan F-16 aircraft; a 3-year, $45 million follow-on contract for carriage and release systems on F-35 aircraft; and a 3-year, $22 million contract from the U.S. Navy to upgrade electronic countermeasure capability on Australian F-18 aircraft under the Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) program.

Critical Networks

Critical Networks segment revenue in the second quarter was $454 million, up 2 percent from the prior year. Higher revenue from FAA NextGen modernization programs and NASA’s Space Communications Network program was partially offset by lower IT services revenue. Segment operating income was $75 million compared with $63 million GAAP and $66 million non-GAAP, excluding restructuring, in the prior year, reflecting the benefit of a contract settlement partially offset by a less favorable mix of program revenue.

Harris was awarded a 14-year (7-year base, 7-year option), $700 million ceiling, single-award IDIQ contract to provide MyFloridaNet-2, a state-wide secure communications network with about 4,000 sites connecting public safety, law enforcement, and other state and local government agencies.

Guidance

In connection with the completed sale of CapRock and pending sale of government IT services, Harris updated its guidance to reflect both CapRock and government IT services reported as discontinued operations and the company’s reorganization into three segments. The air traffic management business will now operate as part of the Electronic Systems segment, and the Critical Networks segment will no longer exist. There were no changes to the Communication Systems or Space and Intelligence Systems segments.

Harris expects fiscal 2017 GAAP income from continuing operations in a range of $5.21 to $5.41 per diluted share and non-GAAP income from continuing operations in a range of $5.40 to $5.60 per diluted share, excluding Exelis acquisition-related integration charges. Fiscal 2017 revenue is expected in a range of $5.76 - $5.88 billion.

Harris will host a conference call today, February 2, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2017 financial results. The dial-in numbers for the teleconference are (877) 303-9481 (U.S.) and (760) 666-3582 (International), using participant code 59654745.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including income from continuing operations and income from continuing operations per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 and the second quarter of fiscal 2016, in each case excluding Exelis acquisition-related items and in the case of the second quarter of fiscal 2016 also excluding restructuring and other charges; free cash flow for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, excluding cash flow for net capital expenditures; segment operating income for the Communication Systems, Electronic Systems and Critical Networks segments for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, in each case excluding restructuring and other charges; the percentage change in revenue for the Electronic Systems segment on an organic basis, excluding revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 attributable to the Aerostructures business divested in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016; and the guidance range for expected income from continuing operations per diluted share for fiscal 2017, excluding Exelis acquisition-related integration charges. A "non-GAAP financial measure" is generally defined as a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future performance that excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments, so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Harris management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Harris management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze Harris business trends and to understand Harris performance. In addition, Harris may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as guides in forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

FY ’17 Second Quarter Summary
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND REGULATION G
DISCLOSURE

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we provide additional measures of income from continuing operations and income from continuing operations per diluted common share and net cash provided by operating activities, adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, expenses and losses or other amounts. Harris management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Harris management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze Harris’ business trends and to understand Harris’ performance. In addition, Harris may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as guides in its forecasting, budgeting, and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Any analysis of non-GAAP financial measures should be used only in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP follows:
