Bombardier today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Revenues totalled $4.4 billion for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $4.1 billion for the same period last fiscal year.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, earnings before financing expense, financing income and income taxes (EBIT) before special items totalled $257 million, or 5.8% of revenues, compared to $214 million, or 5.2%, for the same period last year.

On an adjusted basis, net income amounted to $158 million, or earnings per share (EPS) of $0.09, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $167 million, or EPS of $0.09, for the same period the previous year.

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, free cash flow usage (cash flows from operating activities less net additions to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets) totalled $566 million, compared to a usage of $608 million for the same period last year. As at June 30, 2013, available short-term capital resources of $4.5 billion included cash and cash equivalents of $3.1 billion, compared to $4.0 billion and $2.6 billion respectively as at December 31, 2012. The overall backlog reached a record $65.5 billion as at June 30, 2013, compared to $64.9 billion as at December 31, 2012.

As expected, our second quarter results showed progress in revenues, EBIT and free cash flow,” said Pierre Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. “Transportation had a good second quarter with increases on all fronts; revenues and free cash flow improved, EBIT margin reached 6.9% and the level of new orders continued strong with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.5.”   

“Aerospace also performed well with increased profitability and free cash flow, and a record backlog. The CSeries development is making good progress with some of the major milestones already successfully met; the geared turbofan engines are running smoothly and powering key aircraft systems, and the latest software upgrades continue to be successfully implemented. We’re now in the final testing stage in preparation for first flight in the coming weeks.”

“The outlook for both groups is positive. Our record backlog of $65.5 billion, combined with our significant investments in new products, ensure solid growth in the years to come,” concluded Mr. Beaudoin.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release includes forward-looking statements, which may involve, but are not limited to: statements with respect to our objectives, guidance, targets, goals, priorities, our market and strategies, financial position, beliefs, prospects, plans, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions; general economic and business outlook, prospects and trends of an industry; expected growth in demand for products and services; product development, including projected design, characteristics, capacity or performance; expected or scheduled entry-into-service of products and services, orders, deliveries, testing, lead times, certifications and project execution in general; our competitive position; and the expected impact of the legislative and regulatory environment and legal proceedings on our business and operations. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may”, “will”, “expect”, “intend”, “anticipate”, “plan”, “foresee”, “believe”, “continue”, “maintain” or “align”, the negative of these terms, variations of them or similar terminology. By their nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions and are subject to important known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecasted results. While we consider our assumptions to be reasonable and appropriate based on information currently available, there is a risk that they may not be accurate. For additional information with respect to the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements made in this press release refer to the respective Guidance and forward-looking statements sections in Overview, Bombardier Aerospace and Bombardier Transportation sections in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) in the Corporation’s annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements include risks associated with general economic conditions, risks associated with our business environment (such as risks associated with the financial condition of the airline industry and major rail operators), operational risks (such as risks related to developing new products and services; doing business with partners; product performance warranty and casualty claim losses; regulatory and legal proceedings; the environment; dependence on certain customers and suppliers; human resources; fixed-price commitments and production and project execution), financing risks (such as risks related to liquidity and access to capital markets, exposure to credit risk, certain restrictive debt covenants, financing support provided for the benefit of certain customers and reliance on government support) and market risks (such as risks related to foreign currency fluctuations, changing interest rates, decreases in residual values and increases in commodity prices). For more details, see the Risks and uncertainties section in Other in the MD&A of the Corporation’s annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors that may affect future growth, results and performance is not exhaustive and undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements set forth herein reflect our expectations as at the date of this press release and are subject to change after such date. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, we expressly disclaim any intention, and assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

CAUTION REGARDING NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release is based on reported earnings in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Reference to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) means IFRS, unless indicated otherwise. This press release is also based on non-GAAP financial measures including EBITDA, EBIT before special items, EBIT margin before special items, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures are mainly derived from the interim consolidated financial statements, but do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS; therefore, others using these terms may calculate them differently. Management believes that providing certain non-GAAP performance measures, in addition to IFRS measures, provides users of our interim consolidated financial statements with enhanced understanding of our results and related trends and increases transparency and clarity into the core results of our business. Refer to the Non-GAAP financial measures and Liquidity and capital resources sections in the Corporation’s MD&A for definitions of these metrics and reconciliations to the most comparable IFRS measures.
