Bombardier today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. Revenues totalled $4.9 billion for the quarter, compared to $4.4 billion for the same period last fiscal year, which represents an increase of 8.9%, excluding currency impacts.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, earnings before financing expense, financing income and income taxes (EBIT) totalled $257 million, or 5.3% of revenues, compared to EBIT before special items of $257 million, or 5.8%, and EBIT of $288 million, or 6.5%, for the same period last fiscal year.

On an adjusted basis, net income amounted to $192 million, or earnings per share (EPS) of $0.10, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $158 million, or $0.09, for the same period the previous year. Net income totalled $155 million, or EPS of $0.08, compared to $180 million or $0.10 for the same period the previous year.

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2014, free cash flow usage (cash flows from operating activities less net additions to property, plant and equipment (PP&E) and intangible assets) amounted to $424 million, compared to a usage of $566 million for the same period last year. As at June 30, 2014, available short-term capital resources of $3.9 billion included cash and cash equivalents of $2.5 billion, compared to $4.8 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively as at December 31, 2013. The overall backlog reached $75.7 billion as at June 30, 2014, compared to $69.7 billion as at December 31, 2013.

On July 23, 2014, Bombardier announced a new organizational structure comprised of four business segments: Bombardier Transportation, Bombardier Business Aircraft, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services, the heads of which will report directly to Pierre Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. The creation of the Aerostructures and Engineering Services business segment aims at further marketing the company's expertise in this field to the aerospace industry, thus generating new revenues. A detailed implementation plan will be developed within the next few months, and the new structure will be in place January 1, 2015. The restructuring will result in a reduction of approximately 1,800 indirect positions in Aerospace.

"Overall results for the second quarter were in line with our expectations. Both groups saw an increase in their revenues and a high level of activity for their products," said Pierre Beaudoin. "Bombardier Transportation continued to win a good level of new orders, bringing its total amount to $9.7 billion for the first six months of the year. And further cost reduction measures are being implemented as part of its reorganization initiative to increase profitability over time."

"In Aerospace, the new organizational structure recently announced will make us more agile and flexible in addressing customer needs, while reducing costs and increasing our ability to focus on growth areas. Our strong backlog, combined with this new lighter structure, will allow us to realize the full potential of our investments in new products," concluded Mr. Beaudoin.

Bombardier Aerospace

Bombardier Aerospace's revenues amounted to $2.5 billion for the three-month period ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2.3 billion for the same period last fiscal year. EBIT totalled $141 million, or 5.6% of revenues, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to EBIT before special items of $107 million, or 4.7%, and EBIT of $138 million, or 6.1%, for the same period last fiscal year. Free cash flow usage amounted to $363 million (including net additions to PP&E and intangible assets of $509 million) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to a usage of $459 million (including net additions to PP&E and intangible assets of $534 million) for the same period last fiscal year.

Bombardier Aerospace delivered a total of 62 aircraft during the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to 57 for the same period last fiscal year, and received 48 net orders, compared to 82 for the same period last fiscal year.

On May 29, 2014, an engine-related incident occurred on the first CS100 Flight Test Vehicle (FTV1) during stationary ground maintenance testing. Bombardier and Pratt & Whitney have worked on a solution and flight tests are expected to resume in the coming weeks. The targeted entry-into-service dates of the CS100 and CS300 aircraft programs remain unchanged.

In June, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft signed a firm order with an undisclosed customer for 16 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, valued at $727 million based on list price, with options for an additional eight.

Subsequent to quarter-end, at the Farnborough Airshow, Bombardier Aerospace concluded firm orders, conditional purchase agreements and letters of intent for a total of 74 aircraft, valued at more than $4.25 billion. This includes letters of intent and a conditional purchase agreement for a total of 66 CSeries aircraft with five customers, bringing the total CSeries firm orders and other agreements to 513, with 20 customers in 17 countries, including 203 firm orders.

In April, the maiden flight of the first Learjet 85 Flight Test Vehicle was successfully completed. Additional flights have since occurred. The flights are proceeding as expected.

Bombardier Aerospace's backlog reached a level of $38.1 billion as at June 30, 2014, compared to $37.3 billion, as at December 31, 2013.

Bombardier Transportation

Bombardier Transportation's revenues amounted to $2.4 billion for the three-month period ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2.2 billion for the same period last year, an increase of 6.3% excluding currency impacts. EBIT totalled $116 million, or 4.9% of revenues, compared to $150 million, or 6.9%, for the same quarter the previous year. Free cash flow usage totalled $47 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to a usage of $21 million for the same period last fiscal year.

New orders reached $1.7 billion (book-to-bill ratio of 0.7), bringing the total orders to $9.7 billion for the first six months of the year (book-to-bill ratio of 2.1). This translates into an order backlog of $37.6 billion as at June 30, 2014, compared to $32.4 billion as at December 31, 2013.

During the second quarter, Bombardier Transportation won several small and medium orders across various regions and product segments, including a contract for rolling stock from an undisclosed customer for a value of $338 million. It also signed a framework agreement with Railpool GmbH to provide 65 TRAXX locomotives, with a first call-off of 35 locomotives valued at $184 million. Also, Virgin Trains signed a contract to extend the provision of maintenance of its Super Voyager fleet operating on the UK's West Coast main line to March 2019, valued at approximately $175 million.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release includes forward-looking statements, which may involve, but are not limited to: statements with respect to our objectives, guidance, targets, goals, priorities, our market and strategies, financial position, beliefs, prospects, plans, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions; general economic and business outlook, prospects and trends of an industry; expected growth in demand for products and services; product development, including projected design, characteristics, capacity or performance; expected or scheduled entry-into-service of products and services, orders, deliveries, testing, lead times, certifications and project execution in general; our competitive position; and the expected impact of the legislative and regulatory environment and legal proceedings on our business and operations. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "anticipate", "plan", "foresee", "believe", "continue", "maintain" or "align", the negative of these terms, variations of them or similar terminology. By their nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions and are subject to important known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecasted results. While we consider our assumptions to be reasonable and appropriate based on information currently available, there is a risk that they may not be accurate. For additional information with respect to the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements made in this press release refer to the respective Guidance and forward-looking statements sections in Overview, Bombardier Aerospace and Bombardier Transportation sections in the Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") in the Corporation's financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

Certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements include risks associated with general economic conditions, risks associated with our business environment (such as risks associated with the financial condition of the airline industry and rail industry, political instability and force majeure), operational risks (such as risks related to developing new products and services; fixed-price commitments and production and project execution; doing business with partners; product performance warranty and casualty claim losses; regulatory and legal proceedings; the environment; dependence on certain customers and suppliers; human resources), financing risks (such as risks related to liquidity and access to capital markets, retirement benefit plan risk, exposure to credit risk, certain restrictive debt covenants, financing support provided for the benefit of certain customers and reliance on government support) and market risks (such as risks related to foreign currency fluctuations, changing interest rates, decreases in residual values and increases in commodity prices). For more details, see the Risks and uncertainties section in Other in the MD&A of the Corporation's financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors that may affect future growth, results and performance is not exhaustive and undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements set forth herein reflect our expectations as at the date of this press release and are subject to change after such date. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, we expressly disclaim any intention, and assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

CAUTION REGARDING NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release is based on reported earnings in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Reference to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) means IFRS, unless indicated otherwise. This press release is also based on non-GAAP financial measures including EBITDA, EBIT and EBITDA before special items, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures are mainly derived from the interim consolidated financial statements, but do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS; therefore, others using these terms may calculate them differently. Management believes that providing certain non-GAAP performance measures, in addition to IFRS measures, provides users of our financial reports with enhanced understanding of our results and related trends and increases transparency and clarity into the core results of our business. Refer to the Non-GAAP financial measures and Liquidity and capital resources sections in Overview and Analysis of results sections in Aerospace and Transportation in the Corporation's MD&A for definitions of these metrics and reconciliations to the most comparable IFRS measures.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor.
