General Dynamics Reports Third-Quarter 2018 Results

Revenue up 20% year-over-year to $9.1 billion
Earnings from continuing operations up 13.1% to $864 million
Diluted EPS from continuing operations up 14.7% year-over-year to $2.89

FALLS CHURCH, Va. General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) today reported third-quarter 2018 earnings from continuing operations of $864 million, a 13.1 percent increase over third-quarter 2017. Revenue increased 20 percent to $9.1 billion. While a large portion of the growth was attributed to the acquisition of CSRA, revenue in all segments grew.

Diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations were $2.89 compared to $2.52 in the year-ago quarter, a 14.7 percent increase.

“We took action this quarter to streamline our portfolio, drive out risk from our supply chain and deliver increasingly sophisticated products and services to our customers in an efficient and timely manner,” said Phebe Novakovic, chairman and chief executive officer. “We remain committed to generating steady and sustainable results from our businesses.”

Significant activities this quarter included the delivery of the Virginia-class submarine SSN 790 (future USS South Dakota), the keel-laying of the first John Lewis-class fleet replenishment oiler and the continued integration of CSRA.

Margin
Company-wide operating margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 12.5 percent, a 70 basis-point increase over second-quarter 2018.

Cash
Net cash provided by operating activities in the quarter totaled $790 million, compared to $872 million in the year-ago quarter. Free cash flow from operations, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, was $622 million, after a $255 million discretionary pension plan contribution.
