Company Posts Strong Quarterly and Full Year Results and Issues 2016 Guidance

DULLES, Va.Feb. 29, 2016-- Orbital ATK, Inc. (NYSE: OA), a global leader in aerospace and defense technologies, today announced both GAAP and adjusted financial results for the fourth calendar quarter and calendar year ended December 31, 2015. The company is presenting adjusted results because it believes these non-GAAP metrics are useful to understand the underlying operating performance of the company by including the pre-merger Orbital and ATK Aerospace and Defense results in comparable periods and excluding significant transaction and merger-related expenses and other non-operational expenses in all periods (for details see reconciliation tables at the end of this release).

Orbital ATK reported GAAP revenues of $1,137 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $747 million in the same quarter in 2014. GAAP operating income and profit margin were $87.3 million and 7.7%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $81.0 million and 10.8%, respectively, in the same quarter of 2014. The company reported GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.88 in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.74 in the fourth quarter of 2014. Net cash provided by operating activities was $170.3 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Orbital ATK reported adjusted revenues of $1,137 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to adjusted revenues of $1,116 million in the comparable period of 2014.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the quarter were $1.45, compared to $1.26 for the fourth quarter of 2014. Free cash flow was $122.2 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Full year 2015 GAAP revenues were $4,369 million, compared to $2,995 million in 2014. GAAP operating income and profit margin were $319.6 million and 7.3%, respectively, in 2015, compared to $311.1 million and 10.4%, respectively, in 2014. GAAP earnings per diluted share in 2015 were $2.85 compared to $2.78 in 2014. Net cash provided by operating activities was $443.5 million in 2015.

Full year 2015 adjusted revenues were $4,515 million, compared to $4,438 million in 2014. Adjusted operating income and profit margin were $499.8 million and 11.1%, respectively, in 2015, compared to $438.2 million and 9.9%, respectively, in 2014. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in 2015 were $5.02, compared to $4.18 in 2014. Adjusted free cash flow was $290.0 million in 2015.

Orbital ATK completed the year with strong financial and operational results for both the fourth quarter and full year, said David W. Thompson, Orbital ATK s President and Chief Executive Officer. In the fourth quarter, our revenue, profit margin, earnings per share and cash flow all exceeded our expectations. For the full year, record new orders generated a very strong 116% book-to-bill ratio, giving us excellent visibility into the work we will perform for our customers over the next several years.

Mr. Thompson added, We recently marked the one-year anniversary of completing the merger between Orbital and ATK Aerospace and Defense. I want to thank our customers, employees and shareholders for their encouragement, hard work and support throughout the year, which helped make the transition and integration such a success in a relatively short period of time.

______
The adjusted financial results contained in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures and are adjusted to give effect to the merger of Orbital Sciences Corporation (Orbital) and Alliant Techsystems Inc. (ATK) on February 9, 2015 as if it had occurred on January 1, 2014. In addition, adjusted results exclude significant transaction and merger-related expenses and other non-operational expenses in all periods.

Fourth Quarter Twelve Months
($ in millions, except per share data) 2015 2014 2015 2014
Adjusted Revenues $ 1,137 $ 1,116 $ 4,515 $ 4,438
Adjusted Operating Income 133.0 127.7 499.8 438.2
Adjusted Net Income 86.5 75.0 298.9 249.3
Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share $ 1.45 $ 1.26 $ 5.02 $ 4.18
Adjusted results. See reconciliation tables in the "Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section for details.

Adjusted revenues increased $21 million, or 1.9%, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to adjusted revenues in the same period in 2014, driven by a $31 million increase in Flight Systems Group ( FSG ) adjusted revenues, an $11 million increase in Space Systems Group ( SSG ) adjusted revenues, and a $3 million decrease in corporate eliminations. These revenue increases were partially offset by a $23 million decrease in Defense Systems Group ( DSG ) adjusted revenues.

Adjusted operating income increased $5.3 million, or 4.2%, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter in 2014 as a result of a $21.6 million increase in FSG, a $22.8 million increase in SSG and a $2.3 million increase in DSG, mostly offset by a $41.4 million decrease in corporate income primarily resulting from the 2014 insurance settlement.

Adjusted revenues increased $77 million, or 1.7%, in 2015 compared to adjusted revenues in 2014, driven by a $33 million increase in FSG adjusted revenues and a $122 million increase in SSG adjusted revenues. These revenue increases were partially offset by a $78 million decrease in DSG adjusted revenues. Corporate eliminations were flat year over year.

Adjusted operating income increased $61.6 million, or 14.1%, in 2015 compared to 2014, driven by a $81.4 million increase in FSG, a $35.9 million increase in SSG, and a $4.6 million increase in DSG adjusted operating income, partly offset by a $60.3 million decrease in corporate primarily resulting from the 2014 insurance settlement.

Net income and earnings per share for both quarters reflect an income tax rate of 25.4% for the fourth quarter of 2015 and an income tax rate of 34.0% for the fourth quarter of 2014. The tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2015 reflects the retroactive extension of the R&D tax credit.

We closed 2015 with another strong quarter of financial results, including strong cash flow, said Garrett E. Pierce, the company s Chief Financial Officer. As we look forward to 2016 and beyond, we expect to continue to see benefits from the merger in terms of additional cost and revenue synergies that will propel margin expansion, top-line growth and continued robust free cash flow.

Mr. Pierce also noted, Beginning January 1, 2016, we moved to a calendar-based fiscal year, completing the transition that occurred throughout 2015 after the merger.

Operational Highlights

Orbital ATK s strong operational execution led to the achievement of numerous milestones in the quarter. These included the following important events:

In the Flight Systems Group, integration of the upgraded first stage propulsion system for the Antares rocket progressed well and a second ship-set of engines was also received in the quarter. The company carried out several successful launches, including an Intermediate Range Ballistic Target and a Patriot Target Vehicle for missile defense testing and two Coyote naval target missiles. Orbital ATK supported several successful customer launches with propulsion systems and composite structures, including a Minuteman III missile for the Air Force and three United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V launch vehicles. The company reached production milestones in its aerospace structures division, including delivery of the 3,000th F-35 part and the 200th Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine case.

In the Defense Systems Group, Orbital ATK delivered more than 7,000 tactical missile rocket motors, warheads and related products, and produced over 250 million rounds of small- and medium-caliber ammunition in the fourth quarter. The company also increased production of its AARGM tactical missiles and successfully demonstrated a hypersonic air-breathing engine for future missile applications as well as precision weapons technologies for customers. DSG also opened in-country offices in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates to better support customers in those countries.

In the Space Systems Group, the company successfully launched its Cygnus spacecraft to the International Space Station aboard a ULA Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, marking the resumption of cargo delivery missions for NASA. In addition, production remained on schedule for several commercial satellite programs, including final testing and ground delivery of the Thaicom-8 communications satellite that is currently scheduled for launch this spring. The company-built Dawn interplanetary spacecraft reached its final orbit around Ceres, returning first-of-its-kind images and scientific data about the giant asteroid. Orbital ATK also shipped fuel and oxidizer tanks for integration into NASA s James Webb Space Telescope and carried out five successful suborbital research rocket launches during the fourth quarter.

Commenting on fourth quarter 2015 operations, Chief Operating Officer Blake E. Larson said, Our focus on operational excellence throughout the company resulted in another quarter of very solid progress on numerous major contracts. In the quarter, we reinstated cargo delivery missions to the International Space Station for NASA, ramped up our monthly production rate on the A350 program for Airbus, increased production rates on the AARGM tactical missile program for the U.S. Navy, and met production demand in our small caliber ammunition business for commercial and government customers. We also exceeded our cost synergy targets for 2015, with more progress to be made this year, which should enable us to reach the high end of our expectations.

New Business Summary

In the fourth quarter of 2015, Orbital ATK recorded approximately $855 million in new firm and option contract bookings. In addition, the company received approximately $305 million in option exercises under existing contracts. For the full year, the company booked about $6.7 billion in new firm and option orders and received $1.3 billion in option exercises. As of December 31, 2015, the company s firm backlog was approximately $8.1 billion and its total backlog (including options, indefinite quantity contract and undefinitized orders) was approximately $13.5 billion.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The adjusted financial results contained in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures adjusted to give effect to the merger of Orbital and ATK in all periods and adjust for the impact of costs and expenses itemized in the tables below. In addition, the adjusted results reflect estimates of interest expense, the income tax rate and diluted shares that would be in effect for the periods as if the merger of Orbital and ATK and divestiture of ATK s Sporting Group had occurred on January 1, 2014. Please refer to the reconciliation tables below for more details.

We define free cash flow as GAAP (U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment. Management believes that the company s presentation of free cash flow is useful because it provides investors with an important perspective on the company s liquidity, financial flexibility and ability to fund operations and service debt. The company s management also uses free cash flow in its operational decision-making.

Adjusted measures are provided so investors can more easily compare current and prior period results of the combined companies. These adjusted results should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures, and other companies may define such measures differently. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. The reconciliation of GAAP results to adjusted results are as follows:
