Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY):
- Revenue increased 19.6% to $478.8 million compared with last year
- Earnings per diluted share increased 32.8% to $0.89 compared with last year
- Raising 2008 earnings per share outlook
- Recently acquired assets of Webb Research Corp.
Teledyne Technologies today reported second quarter 2008 sales of $478.8 million, compared with sales of $400.3 million for the same period of 2007. Net income for the second quarter of 2008 was $32.6 million ($0.89 per diluted share), compared with net income of $24.3 million ($0.67 per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2007.
“In the second quarter, we achieved record sales and earnings per share, and operating margin increased 76 basis points. As we have previously mentioned, we believe that our mix of government and commercial businesses, many of which are leveraged to offshore energy, environmental and government markets, should position us favorably in uncertain economic and financial markets,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “The offshore energy, hydrographic survey and other industries served by our marine electronics businesses now represent Teledyne’s second largest end market, second only to the defense market. Under the Teledyne Marine umbrella, Teledyne currently provides a number of market leading marine electronic subsystems, including acoustic modems, acoustic and inertial navigation systems, acoustic Doppler current profilers and subsea electrical and optical interconnect solutions. The recently completed acquisition of assets of Webb Research Corp. adds autonomous underwater vehicle systems to our existing capabilities.”
Review of Operations (comparisons are with the second quarter of 2007, unless noted otherwise)
In the fourth quarter of 2007, the company realigned Teledyne Energy Systems, Inc., Teledyne Turbine Engines and Teledyne Battery Products in a new segment called Energy and Power Systems. In addition, the Systems Engineering Solutions segment was renamed Engineered Systems. Previously reported segment financial data for the second quarter and first six months of 2007 reflects the new segment presentation to provide comparability between periods.
Electronics and Communications
The Electronics and Communications segment’s second quarter 2008 sales were $316.3 million, compared with $266.0 million, an increase of 18.9%. Second quarter 2008 operating profit was $47.0 million, compared with operating profit of $37.3 million, an increase of 26.0%.
The second quarter 2008 sales improvement resulted from revenue growth in electronic instruments and defense electronics, partially offset by lower sales of other commercial electronics. The revenue growth in electronic instruments was driven by organic sales growth and the acquisition of assets of Impulse Enterprise (“Impulse”) on December 31, 2007, the acquisition of Storm Products Co. (“Storm”) on December 31, 2007, and the acquisition of S G Brown Limited and its wholly-owned subsidiary TSS (International) Limited (together “TSS International”) on January 31, 2008. Organic sales growth in electronic instruments reflected increased sales of geophysical sensors for the energy exploration market, other marine instruments and environmental instruments for air and water monitoring. The revenue growth in defense electronics was driven by organic sales growth, the acquisition of Storm on December 31, 2007 and the acquisition of assets of Judson Technologies, LLC (“Judson”) on February 1, 2008. Lower sales of other commercial electronics primarily reflected decreased sales of medical electronic manufacturing services, partially offset by higher avionics sales. The increase in segment revenue in the second quarter of 2008 from acquisitions made since the end of the first quarter of 2007 was $30.2 million. Operating profit was favorably impacted by revenue from acquisitions, organic sales growth and sales mix, a settlement of $2.0 million and lower LIFO expense of $0.3 million.
The Engineered Systems segment’s second quarter 2008 sales were $95.7 million, compared with $73.7 million, an increase of 29.9%. Second quarter 2008 operating profit was $9.4 million, compared with operating profit of $6.4 million, an increase of 46.9%.
The second quarter 2008 sales improvement primarily reflected revenue growth in certain manufacturing programs including gas centrifuge service modules for nuclear power applications, as well as defense and environmental programs. Operating profit in the second quarter of 2008 reflected the impact of higher revenue and higher margins in aerospace programs, favorable fee adjustments and improved overhead rates, partially offset by lower margins in certain environmental programs. Operating profit also included pension expense under SFAS No. 87 and No. 158, of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared with $1.6 million. Pension expense allocated to contracts pursuant to U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (“CAS”) was $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2008 and 2007.
Aerospace Engines and Components
The Aerospace Engines and Components segment’s second quarter 2008 sales were $47.9 million, compared with $46.0 million, an increase of 4.1%. Second quarter 2008 operating profit was $5.0 million, compared with $6.1 million, a decrease of 18.0%. Operating profit for the second quarter of 2008 reflected higher legal fees, as well as increased LIFO expense of $0.2 million.
Energy and Power Systems
The Energy and Power Systems segment’s second quarter 2008 sales were $18.9 million, compared with $14.6 million, an increase of 29.5%. Second quarter 2008 operating profit was $2.8 million, compared with $1.0 million, an increase of 180.0%.
Second quarter 2008 sales primarily reflected higher sales in the turbine engine business and higher government power systems sales partially offset by lower commercial hydrogen generators sales. Operating profit reflected higher sales and margins in the turbine engine business, partially offset by the impact of lower margins in the hydrogen generator business. Operating profit was favorably impacted by $1.3 million for environmental reserves no longer needed due to a final settlement.
Additional Financial Information (comparisons are with the second quarter of 2007, unless noted otherwise)
Cash provided by operating activities was $38.5 million for the secondquarter of 2008, compared with $32.4 million. The higher cash provided by operating activities in 2008 was primarily due to higher net income and the contribution from recent acquisitions, partially offset by higher tax payments. Free cash flow (cash from operating activities less capital expenditures) was $28.7 million for the second quarter of 2008, compared with free cash flow of $22.3 million. At June 29, 2008, total debt was $296.4 million, which includes $291.1 million drawn on available credit lines, as well as other debt and capital lease obligations. Cash and cash equivalents were $17.7 million at June 29, 2008. The company also received $3.7 million from the exercise of employee stock options in the second quarter of 2008, compared with $2.7 million. Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2008 were $9.8 million, compared with $10.1 million. Depreciation and amortization expense for the second quarter of 2008 was $13.1 million, compared with $8.9 million. On July 7, 2008, Teledyne Technologies through its subsidiary, Teledyne Instruments, Inc., completed the acquisition of assets of Webb Research Corp. for $24.2 million in cash.

|Free cash flow||$||28||.7||$||22||.3|
(a) The company defines free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities (a measure prescribed by generally accepted accounting principles) less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment. The company believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is useful to assist management and the investment community in analyzing the company’s ability to generate cash flow.
Pension expense was $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2008 and $2.9 million for the second quarter of 2007, in accordance with the pension accounting requirements of SFAS No. 87 and No. 158. Pension expense allocated to contracts pursuant to CAS was $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2008 and $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2007. Pension expense determined allowable under CAS can generally be recovered through the pricing of products and services sold to the U.S. Government.
The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2008 was 38.8% compared with 38.3%.
Stock Option Compensation Expense
For the second quarter of 2008, the company recorded a total of $1.8 million in stock option expense, of which $0.6 million was recorded as corporate expense and $1.2 million was recorded in the operating segment results. For the second quarter of 2007, the company recorded a total of $1.6 million in stock option expense, of which $0.5 million was recorded as corporate expense and $1.1 million was recorded in the operating segment results.
Interest expense, net of interest income, was $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2008, compared with $3.5 million, and primarily reflected lower average interest rates, partially offset by the impact of higher outstanding debt levels. Other income and expense included lower deferred compensation expenses. Corporate expense was $8.4 million for the second quarter of 2008, compared with $7.2 million and reflected higher compensation expense and higher professional fees expense. Minority interest reflects the minority ownership interests in Ocean Design, Inc. and Teledyne Energy Systems, Inc.
Based on its current outlook, the company’s management believes that third quarter 2008 earnings per diluted share will be in the range of approximately $0.77 to $0.79. The full year 2008 earnings per diluted share outlook is expected to be in the range of approximately $3.20 to $3.25, an increase from the prior outlook of $2.98 to $3.06. The company’s 2008 outlook reflects anticipated sales growth in its defense electronics and instrumentation businesses, due to organic growth and the recent acquisitions. In addition, the company’s third quarter and full year 2008 earnings per diluted share outlook reflects an anticipated increase in expenses, including intangible asset amortization, as a result of these acquisitions. Furthermore, operating margin in the second quarter of 2008 was higher than is currently expected for the second half of 2008 due to the aforementioned favorable settlements and fee adjustments in the second quarter of 2008. The company’s estimated effective tax rate for 2008 is expected to be 39.0%, excluding 2007 research and development income tax refunds of $1.3 million recorded in the first quarter of 2008.
The full year 2008 earnings outlook includes approximately $9.6 million in pension expense under SFAS No. 87 and No. 158, or $0.2 million in net pension expense after recovery of allowable pension costs from our CAS covered government contracts. Full year 2007 earnings included $11.9 million in pension expense under SFAS No. 87 and No. 158, or $1.7 million in net pension expense after recovery of allowable pension costs from our CAS covered government contracts. The decrease in full year 2008 pension expense reflects the investment return on pension assets, as well as pension contributions made in 2007.
The company’s 2008 earnings outlook also reflects $7.8 million in stock option compensation expense. The company’s 2007 earnings included $6.8 million in stock option compensation expense.
