 AeroVironment, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2019 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Results
   Tuesday, June 25, 2019 4:10:00 PM ET

SIMI VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) today reported financial results for its full year and fourth quarter ended April 30, 2019.

  • Revenue of $314.3 million, up 17 percent year-over-year
  • Gross margin of 41 percent, up 1 percentage point year-over-year
  • Full year earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $1.74, including a one-time gain of $0.26 from a litigation settlement, up $0.83 from one year ago


“Our team delivered outstanding results in fiscal 2019, increasing full year revenue by 17 percent and earnings per share by 91 percent, including a one-time litigation settlement gain,” said Wahid Nawabi, AeroVironment president and chief executive officer. “By diversifying our investments, including our partial ownership of the HAPSMobile Inc. joint venture, we strengthened our position as an industry leader, accelerated our growth strategy and expanded our footprint. We continue to transform AeroVironment to compete effectively into the future and are poised to build on our momentum in fiscal year 2020 and beyond.”

“We are also delivering benefits for our other important stakeholders, which will ultimately translate into long-term value creation for our shareholders. We are protecting more United States and allied forces with our unmanned aircraft and tactical missile systems, empowering more farmers and researchers with data tools to grow more and earn more, and rolling out the next generation HAWK30 solar HAPS system to help connect billions of people to the global information network,” Nawabi added.

FISCAL 2019 FULL YEAR RESULTS

Revenue for fiscal 2019 was $314.3 million, an increase of 17% from fiscal 2018 revenue of $268.4 million. The increase in revenue was due to an increase in service revenue of $25.5 million and an increase in product sales of $20.4 million.

Gross margin for fiscal 2019 was $128.4 million, an increase of 19% from fiscal 2018 gross margin of $107.7 million. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in product margin of $16.3 million and an increase in service margin of $4.4 million. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin increased to 41% from 40%. The increase in gross margin percentage was primarily due to the increase in sales volume, partially offset by an increase in inventory reserve charges and an increase in the proportion of service revenue to total revenue.

Income from continuing operations for fiscal 2019 was $33.8 million, an increase of 11% from fiscal 2018 income from continuing operations of $30.4 million. The increase in income from continuing operations was primarily a result of an increase in gross margin of $20.7 million, partially offset by an increase in selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expense of $9.5 million and an increase of research and development (“R&D”) expense of $7.8 million. The increase in SG&A expense included impairment charges of $4.4 million recorded during the three months ended April 30, 2019 related to the long-lived assets of our commercial UAS Quantix solution.

Other income, net for fiscal 2019 was $16.7 million compared to other income, net of $2.2 million for fiscal 2018. The increase in other income, net was primarily due to a one-time gain from a litigation settlement, an increase in interest income and income from transition services performed on behalf of the buyer of the discontinued Efficient Energy Systems (“EES”) business.

Provision for income taxes for fiscal 2019 was $4.6 million compared to $9.8 million for fiscal 2018. The decrease in provision for income taxes was primarily due to a one-time expense of $3.3 million recorded during fiscal year 2018 as a result of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 and a reduction of the federal statutory tax rate from 30.4% to 21%, partially offset by an increase in income before income taxes.

Equity method investment loss, net of tax for fiscal 2019 was $3.9 million compared to $1.3 million for fiscal 2018. The equity method loss is associated with our investment in the HAPSMobile Inc. joint venture formed in December 2017.

Gain on sale of a business, net of tax for fiscal 2019 was $8.5 million and resulted from the sale of our discontinued EES business.

Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for fiscal 2019 was $3.0 million compared to loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for fiscal 2018 of $3.9 million.

Net income attributable to AeroVironment for fiscal 2019 was $47.4 million, an increase from fiscal 2018 net income attributable to AeroVironment of $17.9 million.

Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for fiscal 2019 was $1.74 compared to earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for fiscal 2018 of $0.91.

FISCAL 2019 FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $87.9 million, a decrease of 23% from fourth quarter fiscal 2018 revenue of $113.6 million. The decrease in revenue was due to a decrease in product sales of $25.4 million and a decrease in service revenue of $0.3 million.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $37.0 million, a decrease of 27% from fourth quarter fiscal 2018 gross margin of $50.6 million. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to a decrease in product margin of $12.3 million and a decrease in service margin of $1.2 million. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin decreased to 42% from 45%. The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily due to the decrease in sales volume and an increase in the proportion of service revenue to total revenue.

Income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $5.1 million, a decrease of 82% from fourth quarter fiscal 2018 income from continuing operations of $27.9 million. The decrease in income from continuing operations was primarily a result of a decrease in gross margin of $13.6 million, an increase in SG&A expense of $5.0 million and an increase in R&D expense of $4.2 million. The increase in SG&A expense included impairment charges of $4.4 million recorded during the three months ended April 30, 2019 related to the long-lived assets of our commercial UAS Quantix solution.

Other income, net for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $2.8 million compared to other income, net of $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase in other income, net was primarily due to income from transition services performed on behalf of the buyer of the discontinued EES business and an increase in interest income.

(Benefit) Provision for income taxes for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was a $0.1 million benefit compared to $8.8 million provision for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The decrease in provision for income taxes was primarily due to a decrease in income before income taxes and a reduction of the federal statutory tax rate from 30.4% to 21% as a result of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017.

Equity method investment loss, net of tax for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $1.9 million compared to $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The equity method loss is associated with our investment in the HAPSMobile Inc. joint venture formed in December 2017.

Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $0.5 million compared to loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 of $2.2 million.

Net income attributable to AeroVironment for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $5.7 million, a decrease from fourth quarter fiscal 2018 net income attributable to AeroVironment of $16.8 million.

Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $0.26 compared to earnings per diluted share from continuing operations attributable to AeroVironment for the fourth quarter fiscal 2018 of $0.79.

BACKLOG

As of April 30, 2019, funded backlog (remaining performance obligations under firm orders for which funding is currently appropriated to us under a customer contract) was $164.3 million compared to $164.4 million as of April 30, 2018.

FISCAL 2020 — OUTLOOK FOR THE FULL YEAR

For fiscal 2020, the Company expects to generate between $350 million and $370 million in revenue and between $1.35 and $1.55 in earnings per diluted share. This financial guidance assumes approximately 5% ownership of the HAPSMobile joint venture and includes the expected losses of Pulse Aerospace, which the Company acquired on June 10, 2019. The Company expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, which excludes acquisition related expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets to be between $1.47 and $1.67.

The foregoing estimates are forward looking and reflect management's view of current and future market conditions, including certain assumptions with respect to our ability to obtain and retain government contracts, changes in the timing and/or amount of government spending, changes in the demand for our products and services, activities of competitors, changes in the regulatory environment, and general economic and business conditions in the United States and elsewhere in the world. Investors are reminded that actual results may differ materially from these estimates.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

The non-GAAP measure set forth above should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Management believes that this measure provides useful information to investors by offering additional ways of viewing our results that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, help our investors to understand the long-term profitability trends of our business and compare our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. In addition, Management uses this non-GAAP measure to measure our operating and financial performance.

We exclude the acquisition-related expenses and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because we believe this facilitates more consistent comparisons of operating results over time between our newly acquired and existing businesses, and with our peer companies. We believe, however, that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible asset amortization will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized.
