go from Our David of Please Strauss next ahead. question Barclays. comes

David Strauss

morning. Good Thanks.

Richard Harshman

Morning, David.

David Strauss

I look the next-gen of assumptions second growth. ask the question, your to you if wanted about, half engine year, First at around the

you of for - that implies much you full - the at the margin points the think up year? Does around in the the XXX XXX raised know, assumption half. than HPM, up over you the margin I second in obviously know the - know, was points, know, You year-to-date first talking we less you've the are saw half improvement your for guidance engine basis year guide second said you're in mainly the margins half still next-gen basis about still ramp revolve

John Sims

Again, going pretty that impact Yeah. European see Dave, this have, customers our got year fluctuations. earlier, impacts number the to planned well like is to John of every related We've Harsh as the Sims. we're we summer seasonal much we the QX related maintenance. have shutdowns to said as quarter-to-quarter that normal

And consistently. we a QX in the quarter a like us, But have then for we end we So pull. in lower into seen is stronger of we've and little generally in impacts QX, that as generally again year. the XXXX bit saw tail see guidance our to XXXX

have we know, and you see So wait those guidance we reflect as our year closer. get our end pulls to how in in

David Strauss

- incorporating the year kind of year not you growth half fair next-gen of are in kind second a the that the Is assume in to not - it your the that saw first the the and you're forecast half on you side?

John Sims

early in to consistent. a year, - what movement in statements, incorporating from standpoint generation stronger year. expected the than we're me from seeing year I think our particularly from We're some No is think within a demand, prepared said as just products we're see I going we the next earlier

those from we'll coming compared we annual it's see general in into expect on planned we think as to basis year full for year margin coming be year the some saw for into consistent. the standpoint But expansion pretty what than the products it. so we higher year the we'll And full and an full I for in said to

Richard Harshman

is this Dave, Rich. Yeah,

volume when it just at the year, very think we arguments divided well not the doesn't airframe It know by whatever on four. but make years work pulls engine basis, chain for been supply the the that because order saying annual way. production in the prior work market that consistent I just on in on doesn't when that jet at pattern year-over-year - as you reason. airframe that the that the the we've and The could aren't a even we way this look know same look we you you

on on So annual when our, together core you put our a estimates we've right. basis, know - an

across going then to time terms rates are rates engine good the we generation build and so the the lead engines board. increasing part when And that on And as a to pretty there material view delivery build actually are have in is the and be, what delivered. gets the significantly next of there

So you on planning our basis when a our thought is processes the you The year know second of will real third of process. is goes into we're of quarter. the with volatility see that. the if of lumpiness and half when quarter-to-quarter are all the the we that involved you given we One of number there or - a factors clear how seasonality

build doesn't quarter-to-quarter mean basis market our even a to impact the that from ‘XX from ‘XX and in it doesn't taking ‘XX the basis. a of ‘XX second That's ‘XX. everything It to outages, is in viewpoint third change ‘XX and from from rate year-over-year ‘XX were outages that the just ‘XX from the not terms just at quarter this on The on to doesn't largely is planned how to the increase going that be to it all works.

David Strauss

color Pat, pieces remains million, about you given talk but things. the maybe you how $XXX on a Appreciate the Thanks. obviously free to the for relative then just thinking, year, that mean moving unchanged but forecast, then you viewing how you know flow and Can lot year operating you're you cash one impacts the forecast maybe working for that you're ago? what you CapEx? know there. capital you Obviously a what know quarter can Okay. and better the thinking a were have through things of
