STAMFORD, Conn. October 23, 2023 – Hexcel Corporation (NYSE: HXL) today reported third quarter 2023 results including net sales of $420 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.38 per share.

 

Chairman, CEO and President Nick Stanage said, “Year-over-year third quarter sales increased 15% reflecting the continued robust growth in Commercial Aerospace and Business Jets along with the sustained strong demand in our Space and Defense markets. As we previously forecasted, the third quarter was seasonally impacted, and this combined with some general Commercial Aerospace market supply chain challenges, led to the lower sequential sales level. We delivered double-digit operating margin of 10.2% and an adjusted EPS of $0.38, an increase of 15% year over year. Year to date adjusted EPS has now increased nearly 57% year over year. Hexcel is well positioned, with infrastructure and headcount in place, to meet the expected strong growth ahead driven by the record backlog levels for new commercial aircraft. Our continued focus and strong execution led to Cash from Operations of $68 million compared to $38 million in the third quarter of 2022. We remain committed to delivering our guidance for 2023, including expectations for strong free cash flow generation in the fourth quarter.”

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Markets

Sales in the third quarter of 2023 were $419.5 million compared to $364.7 million in the third quarter of 2022.

Commercial Aerospace

Commercial Aerospace sales of $251.9 million for the third quarter of 2023 increased 20.5% (19.2% in constant currency) compared to the third quarter of 2022. Sales growth was driven by the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 programs while third quarter total narrowbody sales were unchanged from the comparable prior year period. Other Commercial Aerospace increased 20% for the third quarter of 2023 compared to the third quarter of 2022 with business jets leading the growth.

 

Space & Defense

Space & Defense sales of $128.8 million increased 18.6% (17.1% in constant currency) for the quarter as compared to the third quarter of 2022. The sales growth was across a broad number of US and international programs.

 

Industrial

Total Industrial sales of $38.8 million in the third quarter of 2023 decreased 17.4% (21.3% in constant currency) compared to the third quarter of 2022. Strong automotive sales growth did not offset further decline in Hexcel’s wind energy sales, which is reflective of the challenges facing the global wind industry.

 

Consolidated Operations

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2023 was 21.8% compared to 22.4% in the third quarter of 2022. The company’s infrastructure is positioned to support higher growth rates forecasted, however given the expected softer seasonal sales, margins were impacted in the current period. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative and R&T expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were 11.6% compared to 11.1% for the third quarter of 2022. Adjusted operating income in the third quarter of 2023 was $42.8 million or 10.2% of sales, compared to $41.2 million, or 11.3% of sales in 2022. A pre-tax net gain of $0.8 million is included in other operating income in the third quarter of 2023 from the sale of a facility in Windsor, Colorado. Foreign exchange rates had no impact on operating income as a percent of sales in the third quarter of 2023 compared to the third quarter of 2022.

 

Year-to-Date 2023 Results

Sales for the first nine months of 2023 were $1,331.5 million compared to $1,148.3 million, a 16.0% increase from the same period in 2022.

Commercial Aerospace (60% of YTD sales)

Commercial Aerospace sales of $800.7 million increased 22.1% (21.5% in constant currency) for the first nine months of 2023 compared to the first nine months of 2022, with growth driven by the Airbus A350 and A320neo programs and the Boeing 787 program. Other Commercial Aerospace increased 18.9% for the first nine months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022, on growing business jet sales.

Space & Defense (30% of YTD sales)

Space & Defense sales of $392.5 million increased 15.9% (15.5% in constant currency) for the first nine months of 2023 as compared to the first nine months of 2022. Broad-based growth drove the sales increase including US and international military helicopters, and international fixed-wing aircraft programs.

 

Industrial (10% of YTD sales)

Total Industrial sales of $138.3 million in the first nine months of 2023 decreased 10.2% (10.9% in constant currency) compared to the first nine months of 2022 as lower wind energy sales were only partially offset by growth in automotive sales.

 

Consolidated Operations

Gross margin for the first nine months of 2023 was 24.8% compared to 22.5% in the prior year period benefiting from higher sales volume leverage. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative and R&T expenses for the first nine months of 2023 were 12.2% compared to 12.3% for the first nine months of 2022. Adjusted operating income for the first nine months of 2023 was $167.6 million or 12.6% of sales, compared to $117.0 million or 10.2% of sales in 2022. Other operating income for the first nine months of 2023 included a pre-tax net gain of $0.8 million from the sale of the Windsor, Colorado facility offset by restructuring costs. Other operating income for the first nine months of 2022 included a pre-tax net gain of $19.4 million from a property sale in California, partially offset by restructuring costs. The impact of exchange rates on operating income as a percent of sales was favorable by approximately 40 basis points in the first nine months of 2023 compared to the first nine months of 2022.

 

Cash and other

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2023 was $98.1 million, compared to $56.4 million for the first nine months of 2022. Working capital was a cash use of $112.1 million for the first nine months of 2023 and a use of $115.0 million for the comparable period in 2022. The strong focus on inventory continues, resulting in an inventory reduction in the third quarter of 2023. Capital expenditures on a cash basis were $94.4 million for the first nine months of 2023 including approximately $38 million for the purchase of the land and building at the Hexcel Amesbury, Massachusetts facility. Capital expenditures for the first nine months of 2022 were $58.3 million. Net cash used for investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 included net proceeds of $10.3 million received from the sale of the Colorado facility. Net cash used for investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 included the net proceeds of $21.2 million received from the sale of a facility in California. Free cash flow was $3.7 million in the first nine months of 2023, which includes the Massachusetts property purchase, and does not include the property sale in Colorado. This compares to ($1.9) million in the first nine months of 2022. Free cash flow is defined as cash generated from operating activities less cash paid for capital expenditures. Capital expenditures on an accrual basis were $88.7 million and $49.1 million for the first nine months of 2023 and 2022, respectively.
The Company used approximately $30 million to repurchase shares of its common stock during the third quarter. The remaining authorization under the share repurchase program on September 30, 2023 was $187 million.
As announced today, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.125 per share payable to stockholders of record as of November 3, 2023, with a payment date of November 13, 2023.

(a)
To assist in the analysis of the Company’s net sales trend, total net sales and sales by market for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022 have been estimated using the same U.S. dollar, British pound and Euro exchange rates as applied for the respective periods in 2023 and are referred to as “constant currency” sales.
(b)
FX effect is the estimated impact on “as reported” net sales due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
