Fourth Quarter Results

Consolidated sales were up 18.4%, or $31.6 million, from the prior-year period. Aerospace segment sales of $175.2 million were up $35.7 million including $12.0 million of acquired sales from Telefonix PDT. Test Systems segment sales of $27.7 million were down $4.1 million.

Consolidated gross margin improved 470 basis points from the benefit of higher organic sales and Telefonix PDT's contribution to gross profit and strong margin profile.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were up $5.9 million primarily due to the acquisition of Telefonix PDT, which had thirteen weeks of operations in the quarter compared with four weeks in the prior year. Included in SG&A was intangible asset amortization expense of $1.6 million related to the Telefonix PDT acquisition.

Operating income in the fourth quarter was $18.6 million compared with a $7.3 million operating loss in the same period of the prior year. The fourth quarter of 2017 was negatively impacted by an approximate $16.2 million impairment charge associated with its Armstrong Aerospace reporting unit.

The effective tax rate for the quarter was 19.9%, compared with 41.8% in the fourth quarter of 2017. The 2018 fourth quarter tax rate had a net benefit from the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Act"). The 2017 fourth quarter tax rate was unfavorably impacted by the $1.3 million estimated transition tax on the deemed repatriation of foreign earnings resulting from the Act, enacted in December 2017.

Bookings in the quarter were $220.4 million, which exceeded sales by 9%, resulting in a record backlog at year-end of $403.3 million, excluding $12.2 million of semiconductor backlog which was sold with the business in 2019.

Full Year Results

Consolidated sales were $803.3 million, up 28.6%, or $178.8 million, from the same period last year. Organic sales increased $94.0 million, or 15.0%. Acquired sales for 2018 was $84.8 million and all related to the Aerospace segment. Aerospace segment sales of $675.6 million were up 26.4%, or

$141.0 million, and Test Systems segment sales were up 42.0% to $127.6 million.

Consolidated gross profit benefited from higher organic sales and the gross profit contribution of Telefonix PDT. This was partially offset by CCC's lower margin profile due to low volume and the $7.5 million year-to-date loss associated with an acquired development contract.

The $28.3 million increase in SG&A was due primarily to the incremental SG&A costs of the Acquired Businesses, which added $20.9 million. This included $7.4 million of incremental intangible asset amortization expense in 2018. Corporate overhead expenses increased $2.6 million due primarily to increased staffing and infrastructure development.

The effective tax rate for 2018 was 10.5%, compared with 21.3% in 2017. The decrease was due primarily to the decrease in the federal rate as a result of the Act and a net tax benefit of $4.0 million related to a revised state tax filing position. The effective tax rate for 2017 was unfavorably impacted by the $1.3 million estimated transition tax on the deemed repatriation of foreign earnings resulting from the Act.

Bookings for the year, led particularly by the Aerospace segment, totaled $837.3 million, exceeding sales by 4%.

Aerospace Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)

Aerospace Fourth Quarter Results

Aerospace segment sales increased by $35.7 million, or 25.6%, to $175.2 million, when compared with the prior year's fourth quarter, driven by strong growth in organic sales of $23.7 million, or 17.0%. Telefonix PDT contributed $12.0 million in acquired sales in the period.

Electrical Power & Motion sales increased $19.0 million, or 29.1%, due to higher sales of in-seat power and seat motion products. Avionics sales were up $9.0 million as a result of the addition of Telefonix PDT which contributed an incremental $11.0 million to sales in this product line, more than offsetting declines in other avionics products. Lighting & Safety sales increased by $8.8 million due to a general increase in volume. Sales of Other products increased $2.5 million, due primarily to the Telefonix PDT acquisition and increased volume. Systems Certification sales decreased by $3.0 million on lower project activity.

Aerospace segment operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $22.2 million, or 12.7% of sales, compared with an operating loss of $7.9 million in the same period of 2017. Aerospace operating profit benefited from the contribution margin on higher organic sales, the addition of Telefonix PDT, and operating improvements at CCC, AeroSat and Armstrong. These business units improved by a combined $4.6 million to a loss of $6.4 million, exclusive of the $16.2 million impairment charge related to Armstrong in the 2017 fourth quarter. These improvements were partially offset by the impact of tariffs enacted during the latter half of 2018.

Aerospace bookings in the fourth quarter of 2018 were $175.6 million, for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.00:1 for the quarter. Backlog was a record $326.0 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018.

Aerospace Full Year Results

Aerospace segment sales increased by $141.0 million, or 26.4%, to $675.6 million, when compared with the prior-year period. Organic sales increased $56.2 million, or 10.5%, compared with the prior year.

Avionics sales increased by $77.9 million, driven primarily by the acquisitions, which contributed incremental sales of $72.5 million to Avionics sales. Electrical Power & Motion sales increased

$38.9 million, or 14.7%, and Lighting & Safety sales increased $15.7 million, both for similar reasons as in the quarter. Sales of Other products were up $10.6 million, due to the Telefonix PDT business. The increases were slightly offset by a decrease in Structures sales of $1.7 million.

Aerospace operating profit for 2018 was $69.8 million, or 10.3% of sales, compared with $38.9 million, or 7.3% of sales, in the same period of 2017. Aerospace operating profit benefited from higher organic sales and profits of Telefonix PDT, offset partially by increased operating losses of CCC, AeroSat and Armstrong which improved by $3.8 million to $34.7 million compared with the prior year, excluding Armstrong's 2017 goodwill impairment charge. For the year, intangible asset amortization expense was $9.2 million related to the Acquired Businesses. Operating profit in the prior year was negatively impacted by the $16.2 million impairment at Armstrong.

Aerospace bookings for 2018 came to $712.0 million, up 5% over sales. The Aerospace segment had record backlog of $326.0 million at year-end.

Mr. Gundermann commented, "Our Aerospace business continues to perform very well. In the fourth quarter, we set our fourth quarterly sales record in a row, and the year was up 23% over our previous high. Demand was strong throughout the year, such that our Aerospace bookings of $712 million exceeded sales by 5%. We entered 2019 with a record backlog of $326 million, which supports our expectations that 2019 will be another very strong year."

He added, "We continue to make progress with respect to margins in our Aerospace business. Our fourth quarter Aerospace operating margin of 12.7% was the strongest we have achieved in nearly two years. A big part of this improvement came from the three troubled business we have discussed in the past. The operating loss from these three summed to $6.4 million in the fourth quarter, compared with $28.3 million during the first three quarters of 2018, showing good progress. We expect the first quarter of 2019 will be at the same level as the fourth quarter, but we also expect to make steady progress thereafter as volume in these businesses picks up."

Test Systems Segment Review (refer to sales by market and segment data in accompanying tables)

Test Systems Fourth Quarter Results

Sales in the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased approximately $4.1 million to $27.7 million compared with $31.8 million in the prior-year period. Test sales to the Aerospace & Defense market and the Semiconductor market decreased by $2.6 million and $1.5 million, respectively.

Operating profit declined to $0.6 million, or 2.0% of sales, from $4.5 million, or 14.2% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2017 on lower sales and mix change.

Bookings for the Test Systems segment in the quarter were $44.8 million, for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.62:1 for the quarter. Excluding the divested semiconductor business, bookings were $43.3 million in the fourth quarter. Backlog was $89.5 million at the end of 2018, of which $12.2 million was related to the since-divested semiconductor business.

Test Systems Full Year Results

Sales in 2018 increased 42.0% to $127.6 million compared with sales of $89.9 million for 2017. The growth was driven by a $52.3 million increase in sales to the Semiconductor market, offset by a decrease in Aerospace & Defense sales of $14.5 million.

Operating profit was $10.7 million, or 8.4% of sales, compared with $7.4 million, or 8.2% of sales, in 2017. This was primarily due to increased sales volume partially offset by approximately $2.0 million in increased engineering costs and elevated initial costs associated with new products.

Mr. Gundermann commented, "Our Test business had a very strong 2018, with sales up 42% over 2017, although it ended on a weaker note in the fourth quarter as we anticipated. The Test business contributed strongly to our profits for the year, with operating income of $10.7 million in 2018, up from $7.4 million in 2017."

Outlook

Consolidated sales in 2019 are expected to be in the range of $760 million to $805 million. Excluding sales of the disposed semiconductor business from 2018 sales, the mid-point of the range represents consolidated organic growth of 8%. Approximately $710 million to $745 million is expected from the Aerospace segment, an increase at the mid-point of about 8% over 2018. Test Systems segment sales for 2019 are expected to be in the range of $50 million to $60 million, the mid-point representing an increase of 14% over Test Systems sales in 2018 after backing out the disposed semiconductor business.

On February 13, 2019, Astronics completed the sale of its semiconductor test business. The Company expects to record a pre-tax gain on the sale of approximately $80 million in the first quarter of 2019. The income tax expense relating to the gain is estimated to be $22 million.

Consolidated backlog at December 31, 2018 was $415.5 million. Excluding $12.2 million of backlog that was disposed of in the 2019 sale of the semiconductor business, backlog was $403.3 million, of which approximately $352.4 million is expected to ship in 2019.

The effective tax rate for 2019, excluding the impact of the gain on the sale of the semiconductor business, is expected to be approximately 18% to 22%.

Capital equipment spending in 2019 is expected to be in the range of $22.0 million to $28.0 million.

Mr. Gundermann commented, "We will be without our semiconductor test business in 2019, which we sold to Advantest on February 13, 2019. We have enjoyed our participation in the semi-test industry, but came to the conclusion that it would be difficult for us to expand its customer base meaningfully without extraordinary levels of investment. We feel the business is better off with Advantest, and we are pleased with the return we earned. We originally acquired the semiconductor business as part of a 2014 acquisition for $69 million. That acquisition paid back its purchase price in under two years, so we feel the return we have recognized is very good.

We believe we can deliver a very solid 2019. Our Test segment, without the semi-test business, is set up for a solid year of growth with its remaining A&D products, helped in part by our recently announced award on the New York City subway program. At the same time, we will need to adjust to the lower overall volume of our Test segment, so margins are expected to be modest to breakeven. Our Aerospace business, on the other hand, anticipates another year of solid sales growth and strengthening margins. As Aerospace will represent 90% of our volume, these results will largely determine our year."
