Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2008 Financial Results; Includes Impact of Machinists' Strike at Boeing and Lower Pension Income Forecast; Provides 2009 Financial Outlook

- Full-year 2008 Revenues of $3.8 billion; Operating Income of $406 million

WICHITA, Kan., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPR) reported fourth quarter and full-year 2008 financial results reflecting solid operating performance, the unfavorable impact from the Machinists' strike at Boeing, and a lower pension income forecast which unfavorably impacted the company's contract accounting estimates.

Spirit's fourth quarter 2008 revenues were $646 million and operating income was $28 million, as the combination of the Machinists' strike at Boeing and a lower pension income forecast for the remainder of the contract blocks impacted financial results for the quarter.

Despite the strike and pension impact in the third and fourth quarters of 2008, full-year 2008 revenues were $3.772 billion and operating income was $406 million. Increased production volumes during the first eight months of 2008 and lower period expenses for the year were more than offset by strike- related reduced deliveries to Boeing in the third and fourth quarters of 2008.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $20 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share compared to $76 million, or $0.54 per fully diluted share, for the same period in 2007. Full-year 2008 net income was $265 million, or $1.91 per fully diluted share compared to $297 million, or $2.13 per fully diluted share for 2007. Fourth quarter and full-year 2008 net income benefited from the federal research and experimentation (R&E) tax credit's retroactive extension, which reduced the fourth quarter 2008 tax expense by $8 million, increasing fully diluted earnings per share by $0.06 per share.

During the third quarter of 2008, Spirit responded to a labor strike at its largest customer, The Boeing Company. The work stoppage by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) resulted in Spirit taking immediate action to implement a reduced work week schedule for certain employees supporting most Boeing programs, which remained in effect throughout the fourth quarter of 2008. As a result, fourth quarter 2008 ship set deliveries to Boeing were 63 units below pre-strike delivery levels, resulting in a revenue reduction of $451 million and a reduction in earnings per share of $0.28. The 2008 full year impact of the strike resulted in 72 fewer deliveries, resulting in a revenue reduction of $504 million and a reduction in earnings per share of $0.41 per share.

The company's U.S. pension plan remained fully funded at year-end 2008. As a result of the plan's asset performance during 2008 and the increased pension obligation resulting from a lower discount rate at the December 31st measurement date, Spirit now expects significantly reduced non-cash pension income in future periods. The reduced non-cash pension income forecast negatively impacts the profitability of the current contract accounting blocks and resulted in an unfavorable cumulative catch-up adjustment of $20 million, or $0.10 earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2008. The reduction in the plan's assets and the increase in the pension obligation during 2008 also resulted in a $186 million reduction in Other Comprehensive Income during the fourth quarter of 2008.

"Our 2008 results reflect a successful, yet challenging year," said President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Turner. "We increased production rates early in the year, made good progress on development programs, strengthened and matured customer relationships, and maintained our strong operating performance across the company while managing through the challenges of the Machinists' strike at Boeing during the third and fourth quarters of 2008," Turner continued. "We continued to advance our strategy by winning new business and establishing the Spirit brand throughout the industry," Turner added. During the year, Spirit announced projects underway with Gulfstream and Rolls-Royce and new business wins with Airbus, Cessna, Mitsubishi, Southwest Airlines and Continental Airlines. The new manufacturing facility in the state of North Carolina is progressing to plan, and the Malaysian facility is on schedule to open in the first quarter of 2009.

"Our strategy remains solid and the company is financially strong as we move into less certain times in the commercial aerospace market," Turner stated. "We are working closely with our customers and monitoring developments across the industry as we look forward into 2009 and beyond."

Spirit's backlog increased by over $5 billion in 2008 as the company executed its growth and customer diversification strategy by capturing new business in the large commercial aircraft, regional jet, and business jet market segments. The company's backlog at the end of 2008 was $31.7 billion, up 20 percent from year-end 2007. Spirit's backlog is calculated based on contractual prices for products and volumes from the published firm order backlogs of Boeing and Airbus, along with firm orders from other customers.

Spirit updated its contract profitability estimates during the fourth quarter of 2008, resulting in a $27 million unfavorable cumulative catch-up adjustment. This adjustment reflects $20 million for the lower pension income forecast in the current accounting blocks; $5 million from unfavorable foreign exchange rate movements; $2 million of net impact from other matters including customer requested delivery delays on the 787 and 747-8 programs; increasing costs from certain suppliers; and the IAM strike at Boeing. Spirit recognized a $3.5 million favorable cumulative catch-up adjustment during the fourth quarter of 2007.

Cash flow from operations was $58 million for the fourth quarter and $205 million for the full-year 2008, compared to $75 million for the fourth quarter and $180 million for the full-year 2007. The company's continued investment in new development programs, reflected largely as growth in pre-production inventory balances, was more than offset by earnings, customer advances, and accounts receivable performance.

Cash balances at the end of the year were $217 million and debt balances were $588 million. During the fourth quarter of 2008, the company borrowed and repaid $100 million from its credit facility as it adjusted to a reduced work week schedule implemented as a result of the Machinists' strike at Boeing. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2008, the company's $650 million revolving credit facility was undrawn. Approximately $14 million of the credit facility is reserved for financial letters of credit. The company's credit ratings remained unchanged with a BB rating at Standard & Poor's and a Ba3 rating at Moody's.

2009 Outlook

Spirit revenue for the full-year 2009 is expected to be between $4.25 and $4.35 billion based on previously provided 2009 Boeing delivery guidance of 480-485 aircraft; anticipated ramp up of 787 deliveries; 2009 expected Airbus deliveries of around 483 aircraft; internal Spirit forecasts for non-OEM production activity and non-Boeing and Airbus customers; and foreign exchange rates consistent with year-end 2008 levels.

Fully diluted earnings per share for 2009 is expected to be between $2.15 and $2.35, largely reflecting flat production of large commercial aircraft, excluding the impact of the strike at Boeing, and a continued focus on expense management and improving operating efficiencies.

Cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, net of customer reimbursements, is expected to be positive in the aggregate for the full-year 2009 with capital expenditures to be between $250 million and $275 million.
