Financial report summary

  • Our commercial business is sensitive to the number of flight hours that our customers’ planes spend aloft, the size and age of the worldwide aircraft fleet and our customers’ profitability. These items are, in turn, affected by general economic and geopolitical and other worldwide conditions.
  • Our sales to manufacturers of aircraft are cyclical, and a downturn in sales to these manufacturers may adversely affect us.
  • We rely heavily on certain customers for much of our sales.
  • We generally do not have guaranteed future sales of our products. Further, when we enter into fixed price contracts with some of our customers, we take the risk for cost overruns.
  • U.S. military spending is dependent upon the U.S. defense budget.
  • We intend to pursue acquisitions. Our business may be adversely affected if we cannot consummate acquisitions on satisfactory terms, or if we cannot effectively integrate acquired operations.
  • We are subject to certain unique business risks as a result of supplying equipment and services to the U.S. Government.
  • Our business may be adversely affected if we would lose our government or industry approvals or if more stringent government regulations are enacted or if industry oversight is increased.
  • Our indebtedness could adversely affect our financial health and could harm our ability to react to changes to our business and prevent us from fulfilling our obligations under our indebtedness.
  • To service our indebtedness, we will require a significant amount of cash. Our ability to generate cash depends on many factors beyond our control and any failure to meet our debt service obligations could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • The terms of the senior secured credit facility and Indentures may restrict our current and future operations, particularly our ability to respond to changes or to take certain actions.
  • We could incur substantial costs as a result of violations of or liabilities under environmental laws and regulations.
  • We are dependent on our senior management team and highly trained employees and any work stoppage or difficulty hiring similar employees could adversely affect our business.
  • We may be subject to periodic litigation and regulatory proceedings, including Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour class action lawsuits, which may adversely affect our business and financial performance.
  • Our business is dependent on the availability of certain components and raw materials from suppliers.
  • Our operations depend on our manufacturing facilities, which are subject to physical and other risks that could disrupt production.
  • Operations and sales outside of the United States may be subject to additional risks.
  • We face significant competition.
  • We could be adversely affected if one of our components causes an aircraft to crash.
  • We have recorded a significant amount of intangible assets, which may never generate the returns we expect.
  • Volatility in the equity markets or interest rates could substantially increase our pension costs and required pension contributions.
  • We may be subject to risks relating to changes in its tax rates or exposure to additional income tax liabilities.
  • Our stock price may be volatile, and an investment in our common stock could suffer a decline in value.
  • Future sales of our common stock in the public market could lower our share price.
  • Our corporate documents and Delaware law contain certain provisions that could discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of our company.
  • We do not regularly declare and pay quarterly or annual cash dividends on our stock.
Management Discussion
  • For fiscal year 2019, we generated net sales of $5,223.2 million, gross profit of $2,809.3 million or 53.8% of sales, and net income of $889.8 million. We believe we have achieved steady, long-term growth in sales and improvements in operating performance since our formation in 1993 due to our competitive strengths and through execution of our value-driven operating strategy. More specifically, focusing our businesses on our value-driven operating strategy of obtaining profitable new business, carefully controlling the cost structure and pricing our highly engineered value-added products to fairly reflect the value we provide and the resources required to do so has historically resulted in improvements in gross profit and income from operations over the long term.
