Cubic Corporation Reports Financial Results for Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2012

Completes Restatement for Fiscal Years 2009, 2010 and 2011 and Interim Periods

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) today reported higher sales and earnings for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. Sales in fiscal year 2012 were $1.381 billion, an increase of 7 percent over sales of $1.296 billion in the restated prior year. Net income attributable to Cubic shareholders increased to $91.9 million, or $3.44 per share, from $83.6 million, or $3.13 per share, last year, as restated. Sales and net income were both record highs.

The company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) its financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. In addition, Cubic filed its restated financial statements for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2011, 2010 and 2009, the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, and each of the prior quarters of 2011 and 2010. The restatement resulted in a cumulative increase in equity of $26.9 million through March 31, 2012.

Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Review

  • Sales increased 7 percent to $1.381 billion in fiscal 2012 from $1.296 billion in the restated prior year. The increase was primarily due to growth of 20 percent in Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), and in particular from our contracts in Sydney, Australia and Vancouver, B.C. Growth in 2012 sales from Mission Support Services (MSS) was nearly offset by a decrease in Cubic Defense Systems (CDS) sales.

  • Operating income increased 13 percent to $128.0 million in 2012 compared to $113.5 million in the restated prior year. CTS and CDS each contributed to the growth in operating income in 2012, while MSS operating income was down in 2012 from 2011. Growth in CTS sales was the primary reason for the increase in operating income. CDS operating income grew primarily due to a decrease in our investment in cross domain and global asset tracking products in 2012 compared to 2011. Operating results for MSS include an operating loss from Abraxas of $1.3 million in 2012, including amortization of intangible assets of $9.3 million, compared to a loss of $3.5 million in 2011, which included amortization of intangible assets of $8.2 million and acquisition costs of $0.7 million.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased to $163.7 million or 12 percent of sales in 2012, compared to $159.8 million or 12 percent of sales in the restated prior year. The increase in SG&A expenses in 2012 reflects the overall growth of the business.

  • Company-sponsored research and development (R&D) spending totaled $28.7 million in 2012 compared to $25.3 million in the restated prior year. The increase in R&D expenditures in 2012 came from the transportation systems business, which increased R&D spending from $4.0 million in 2011 to $8.3 million in 2012.

  • Our effective tax rate for 2012 was 29 percent of pretax income compared to 28 percent in 2011, as restated, primarily because of the expiration of the U.S. R&D credit on December 31, 2011.

  • Net income attributable to Cubic increased to $91.9 million, or $3.44 per share, in 2012 from $83.6 million, or $3.13 per share, in the restated prior year. Higher net income year-over-year resulted primarily from the improvements in operating income.

  • While CDS and CTS both generated negative operating cash flows in 2012, MSS contributed positive operating cash flows. Operating activities used cash of $54.7 million in 2012, compared to providing cash of $129.1 million in the prior year. In 2012, cash generated by earnings was offset by increases in accounts receivable of $118.2 million and inventories of $13.6 million, and a net decrease in customer advances of $38.0 million. In addition, the company incurred $26.9 million in costs to build a new open payment fare collection system for Chicago. The growth in accounts receivable and reduction of customer advances related to several large transportation systems and defense systems contracts the company worked on in 2012. Negative cash flows on these contracts at this stage of their completion are in accordance with contract terms. The company expects cash flows from these contracts to improve as deliveries are made and milestones are reached on these contracts.

  • Total backlog increased $50.2 million from $2.781 billion, as restated at September 30, 2011, to $2.832 billion at September 30, 2012. The majority of the CTS backlog increase was related to a new contract in Chicago, which added $454 million. Backlog for CDA and MSS decreased from September 30, 2011, as restated, to September 30, 2012. In 2013 the amount of sales from backlog are expected to be approximately $1 billion, which historically has represented 70 to 73 percent of the company's revenues for the following year. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has been issuing shorter duration contract awards for both product and services and this has resulted in decreased backlog for the company's defense businesses.

Financial Restatement Summary

  • Cubic today also filed its restated financial statements for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2011, 2010 and 2009, the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, and each of the quarters of 2011 and 2010.

  • Fiscal year 2012 was a very good year for the corporation in terms of performance. In comparison, the company anticipates that 2013 will be a challenging year. The company's defense businesses, like all companies in the defense industry, continue to face uncertainties related to DoD budget cuts. These cuts, if implemented, could trigger across-the-board spending reductions scheduled to go into effect in 2013.

  • Additionally, the defense services market is becoming increasingly competitive. As a result of this market environment, the company's defense services business may experience lower profit margins in 2013 compared to 2012. While the company believes its training services and systems are essential to the U.S. military, Cubic, and the defense industry as a whole, is uncertain as to which programs and technologies could be most affected. Approximately 50 percent of sales in our defense systems business have been international in recent years, which should help mitigate an anticipated slowdown in U.S. spending.

  • In 2013 the company expects its transportation business to complete the design/build phase on major automated fare collection projects. During this phase, the transportation business may also face margin pressure until the new systems are operational.

  • Although 2013 is anticipated to be a transition year, the company remains confident in its long-term prospects for growth. The company has a diverse portfolio of market leading businesses which provide systems and services to a global customer base. The company plans to leverage and build upon its market leading positions and find additional opportunities for growth in adjacent markets by leveraging both research and development, and acquisitions.

The Company filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and its Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
Advances in technology and ubiquitous connectivity have made the utilization of a dispersed workforce more common. Whether that remote team is located across the street or country, management styles/ approaches will have to be adjusted to accommodate this new dynamic.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
