HAIFA, Israel, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT), the international defense electronics company, reported today its consolidated results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010.
In this release, the Company is providing its usual US-GAAP results as well as additional non-GAAP financial data, which are intended to provide investors a more comprehensive understanding of the Company's business results and trends. Unless otherwise stated, all financial data presented is GAAP financial data.
Fourth quarter 2010 results:
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased by 11.8% to $798.7 million, as compared to $714.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase in the Company's revenues was driven mainly by the electro-optics and airborne systems areas of operations.
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $231.9 million (29.0% of revenues), as compared to gross profit of $212.0 million (29.7% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009. The reduction in the gross profit margin rate was caused mainly by write-off of inventories as well as additional acquisition expenses related to the acquisitions completed during the fourth quarter of 2010, including mainly Soltam, ITL, Ares and M7.
Research and development expenses, net for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $68.5 million (8.6% of revenues), as compared to $61.8 million (8.7% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Marketing and selling expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $65.9 million (8.2% of revenues), as compared to $59.4 million (8.3% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009.
General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $40.8 million (5.1% of revenues), as compared to $32.5 million (4.5% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase was mainly a result of consolidation of expenses from the newly acquired subsidiaries in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Financial expenses, net for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $11.6 million, as compared to $7.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Expenses were relatively low in the fourth quarter of 2009 due to currency hedging related gains. The increased expenses in the fourth quarter of 2010 were mainly due to higher expenses related to the Series A Notes that the Company issued during the second quarter of 2010, as well as to the revaluation of the New Israeli Shekel against the US dollar.
Taxes on income for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $2.4 million (effective tax rate of 5.4%), as compared to taxes on income of $0.4 million (effective tax rate of 0.8%) in the fourth quarter of 2009. The change in the effective tax rate was attributable mainly to the mix of the tax rates in the various jurisdictions in which the Company's entities generate taxable income. The unusually low effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2009 was related to tax adjustments from prior years in some of the Company's subsidiaries. The fourth quarter of 2010 was also affected by an increase in deferred tax assets.
Equity in net earnings of affiliated companies and partnership for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased to $6.1 million (0.8% of revenues), as compared to $4.9 million (0.7% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Net income attributable to non-controlling interests for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $4.9 million, as compared to $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $43.7 million (5.5% of revenues), as compared with $53.7 million (7.5% of revenues) in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Diluted net earnings per share attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $1.01, as compared with $1.24 for the fourth quarter of 2009.
Full year 2010 results:
Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 decreased by 5.7% to $2,670.1 million, as compared to $2,832.4 million in the year ended December 31, 2009. The decrease in the Company's revenues was due mainly to a decrease in sales in the land systems and the C4ISR systems areas of operations. The decrease in revenues in the land systems activities was mainly a result of a lower level of revenues in Europe, including a decrease in the level of revenues due to the winding-up of M-60 project in Turkey, as well as a decrease in the revenues for the Bradley project in the United States. The decrease in the revenues for C4ISR systems was mainly in Europe, as a result of a decreased level of revenues from the Watchkeeper project.
Cost of goods sold for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $1,872.3 million, as compared to $1,983.0 in the year ended December 31, 2009. The decrease in cost of goods sold was mainly as a result of the decrease in sales. The expenses include a write-off of inventories in the amount of approximately $13 million related to the acquisitions of Soltam and ITL. In addition, as a result of the acquisitions the amortization expense of intangible assets increased. The increased expenses were partly offset by improvements in other subsidiaries of the Company.
Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2010 decreased by 6.1% to $797.9 million (29.9% of revenues), as compared with gross profit of $849.5 million (30.0% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2009. The decrease in the amount of gross profit in 2010 resulted primarily from the reduction in revenues.
Research and development expenses, net for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $234.1 million (8.8% of revenues), as compared to $216.8 million (7.7% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2009. The increased rate of research and development expenses in 2010 was primarily a result of accelerated development of programs related to technology and the adaptation of products, as well as increased engineering activities to support marketing efforts world-wide.
Marketing and selling expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $229.9 million (8.6% of revenues), as compared to $251 million (8.9% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2009.
General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $131.2 million (4.9% of revenues), as compared to $119.3 million (4.2% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase in general and administrative expenses in 2010 was mainly the result of expenses related to acquisitions and the consolidation of expenses from the newly acquired subsidiaries.
Other operational income for the year ended December 31, 2010 amounted to $4.8 million. The amount reflects a net gain of $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2010, related to the revaluation of the previously held Azimuth shares at the acquisition date due to its accounting treatment as a business combination achieved in stages.
Financial expenses, net for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $21.3 million, as compared to $15.6 million in the year ended December 31, 2009. The higher level of financial expenses in 2010 was mainly due to higher expenses related to the Series A Notes that the Company issued during the second quarter of 2010 as well as to the revaluation of the NIS against the US dollar.
Other income for the year ended December 31, 2010 amounted to $13.3 million. It included a gain of $12.8 million related to the selling of Mediguide shares in the first quarter of 2010.
Taxes on income for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $24.0 million (effective tax rate of 12.1%), as compared to taxes on income of $38.1 million (effective tax rate of 15.4%) in the year ended December 31, 2009. Taxes on income in 2010 were reduced by an amount of approximately $10 million related to the deferred tax assets for prior years' losses in one of the Company's subsidiaries. The change in the effective tax rate was also affected by the mix of the tax rates in the various jurisdictions in which the Company's entities generate taxable income.
Equity in net earnings of affiliated companies and partnership for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $19.3 million (0.7% of revenues), similar to that for the year ended December 31, 2009.
Net income attributable to non-controlling interests for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $11.2 million, as compared to $13.6 million in the year ended December 31, 2009.
Net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $183.5 million (6.9% of revenues), as compared with $214.9 million (7.6% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2009.
Diluted net earnings per share attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $4.25, as compared with $5.00 for the year ended December 31, 2009.
The Company's backlog of orders for the year ended December 31, 2010 totaled $5,446 million, as compared with $5,044 million as of December 31, 2009. Approximately 74% of the current backlog is due to orders from outside Israel. Approximately 72% of the current backlog is scheduled to be performed during 2011 and 2012.
Operating cash flow for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $184.9 million, as compared to $209.7 million in the year ended December 31, 2009. The decrease in the operating cash flow was mainly a result of the decrease in net income.
Non-GAAP financial data:
The following non-GAAP financial data is presented to enable investors to have additional information on the Company's business performance as well as a further basis for periodical comparisons and trends relating to the Company's financial results. The Company believes such data provides useful information to investors by facilitating more meaningful comparisons of the Company's financial results over time. Such non-GAAP information is used by our management to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the Company's current performance. However, investors are cautioned that, unlike financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, non-GAAP measures may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures for other companies.
The non-GAAP financial data below includes reconciliation adjustments regarding non-GAAP gross profit, operating income, net income and diluted EPS. In arriving at non-GAAP presentations, companies generally factor out items such as those that have a non-recurring impact on the income statements, various non-cash items, significant effects of retroactive tax legislation and changes in accounting guidance and other items which, in management's judgment, are items that are considered to be outside of the review of core operating results. In the Company's non-GAAP presentation below, the Company made the following adjustments: (1) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (2) significant reorganization, restructuring and other related expenses, (3) impairment of investments, including impairment of auction rate securities, (4) gain from changes in holdings, including revaluation of the previously held shares at the acquisition date when a business combination is achieved in stages (step-up) and (5) the income tax effects of the foregoing.
These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP, and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as replacements for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(2) Adjustment of impairment of investments in 2010 and 2009 were due to the impairment of ICI intangible assets and in 2008 were due to impairment of auction rate securities ($18.7 million) and the impairment of Sandel shares ($10.5 million).

Joseph Ackerman, President and CEO of Elbit Systems, commented: "While 2010 was a challenging year, we witnessed resumed growth in our backlog, while at the same time we achieved increased revenues levels in the fourth quarter. Most important for 2010 was the solid execution of our M&A strategy in support of our long-term goals. 2010 was a year of building on our internal competencies while acquiring complementary technologies and products that broadened our offerings to the defense market. We are also providing in this release certain supplemental non-GAAP financial data, which will enhance understanding of our business and its trends".
Mr. Ackerman continued, "Our recent acquisitions open a number of new doors for us. First, they add additional R&D capabilities in a number of new areas, which can potentially be beneficial across the entire breadth of our operations. Second, the acquisitions strengthen and expand our presence in the Training and Simulation, Artillery and MRO areas. Finally, our M&A and related activities enable us to expand our operations in strategic regions, notably Brazil and Australia. Looking ahead, as we begin to exploit the synergies of this group of new acquisitions, we believe that, as we have done successfully in the past, we will be able to use our combined resources more efficiently and improve our overall margins. As we move through 2011, we are better positioned from strategic, operational and financial perspectives, and we look forward to solid performance in the coming quarters and years.
The Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.36 per share for the fourth quarter of 2010. The dividend's record date is March 29, 2011, and the dividend will be paid on April 11, 2011, net of taxes and levies, at the rate of 20%.
