This news release contains certain forward-looking statements that reflect the current views and/or expectations of the Corporation with respect to its performance, business and future events.  Such statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which may cause actual results to be materially different from those expressed or implied.  The Corporation assumes no future obligation to update these forward-looking statements except as required by law. 

 

This news release presents certain non-IFRS financial measures to assist readers in understanding the Corporation's performance. Non-IFRS financial measures are measures that either exclude or include amounts that are not excluded or included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Throughout this news release, reference is made to EBITDA (defined as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization), which the Corporation considers to be an indicative measure of operating performance and a metric to evaluate profitability. EBITDA is not a generally accepted earnings measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or cash flows as determined in accordance with IFRS. As there is no standardized method of calculating this measure, the Corporation's EBITDA may not be directly comparable with similarly titled measures used by other companies.

1.  Overview
A summary of Magellan's business and significant updates

Magellan is a diversified supplier of components to the aerospace industry and in certain circumstances for power generation projects. Through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Magellan engineers and manufactures aeroengine and aerostructure components for aerospace markets, advanced products for defence and space markets and complementary specialty products.  The Corporation also supports the aftermarket through supply of spare parts as well as performing repair and overhaul services and supplies in certain circumstances parts and equipment for power generation projects.

The Corporation's strategy has been to focus on several core competencies within the aerospace industry.  These include precision machining of a wide variety of aerospace material, composites, complex high technology magnesium and aluminum alloy castings, repair and overhaul technologies and design of structures.  The Corporation is now seeking to leverage these core competencies by achieving growth in applications where these abilities are critical in meeting customer needs. 

Business Update
On October 5, 2015, the Corporation announced it was awarded a follow on contract to provide nose and main landing gear components and kitted assemblies to Messier-Bugatti-Dowty for major commercial aircraft customers. The complex machined components are manufactured in Magellan's facilities in New York, New York and Kitchener, Ontario, which are Magellan's facilities geared for high velocity, hard metal machining and kitting. The contract represents US$80 million in sales for the period of 2017 through 2021.

2.  Results of Operations
A discussion of Magellan's operating results for fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015

The Corporation operates substantially all of its activities in one reportable segment, Aerospace, which include the design, development, manufacture, repair and overhaul and sale of systems and components for defence and civil aviation.  The Corporation continues to provide services to the Power Generation segment; however, the Corporation has removed the disclosure of this segment as the activity in relation to these services were not material in the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2015 and, at present, they are not expected to be material in future periods. 

The Corporation reported higher revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Gross profit and net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $44.8 million and $25.5 million, respectively, an increase from the fourth quarter of 2014 gross profit and net income of $38.2 million and $17.9 million, respectively.

Consolidated revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 of $252.6 million were 20.9% higher than revenues of $208.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Revenues in Canada in the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 13.3% from the same period in 2015 as the Corporation benefited from the weakening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar during the quarter.  On a constant currency basis, Canadian revenues in the current quarter increased 9.6%  Increased revenues in the current quarter were primarily attributed to higher volumes on a number of the Corporation's commercial aircraft and defence programs, offset in part by reduced revenues earned on proprietary products, mainly space programs.  Revenues increased by 18.0% in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2015 in comparison to the same period in 2014 primarily as a result of the stronger United States dollar in comparison to the Canadian dollar and higher volumes on several of the Corporation's commercial aircraft programs.  European revenues in the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 35.0% over revenues in the same period in 2014.  Higher production volumes on the Airbus statement of work, the business acquisition of Euravia Engineering & Supply Co. ("Euravia") in the second quarter of 2015 and the strengthening of the British pound in comparison to the Canadian dollar were the primary contributors to the increased revenues in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to the same period in 2014.  On a constant currency basis, revenues in the fourth quarter of 2015 in Europe increased by 19.7% over the same period in 2014.

The Corporation recorded an income tax expense of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to an income tax expense of $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Current income taxes for the fourth quarter of 2015 consisted primarily of the tax expense in jurisdictions with current taxes payable. The decrease in deferred income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2015 consisted primarily of net deferred income tax expense for changes in temporary differences in various jurisdictions. The decrease in the effective tax rate to 6.1% in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to 25.3% in same period in 2014 is primarily due to an adjustment in corporate taxation rates in the income tax jurisdictions in which the Corporation operates, and the recognition of previously unrecognized deferred tax assets.

The Corporation recorded its highest quarterly revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Revenues and net income reported the quarterly information were impacted positively by the fluctuations in the Canadian dollar exchange rate in comparison to the United States dollar and British pound.  The United States dollar/Canadian dollar exchange rate in the fourth quarter of 2015 fluctuated reaching a low of 1.2890 and a high of 1.3955.  During the fourth quarter of 2015, the British pound relative to the Canadian dollar fluctuated reaching a low of 1.9812 and a high of 2.0938.  Had the foreign exchange rates remained at levels experienced in the fourth quarter of 2014, reported revenues in the fourth quarter of 2015 would have been lower by $28.2 million.

Net income for the first and fourth quarters of 2015 of $19.2 million and $25.5 million, respectively, was higher than all other quarterly net income shown in the table above.  In all four quarters of 2015 movements in the US dollar and British pound in relation to the Canadian dollar favorably impacted net income.  Somewhat offsetting the favourable transactional currency movement in the second quarter of 2015, the Corporation recorded a loss on translation of its foreign currency liabilities within Canada and Europe. In the fourth quarter of 2014 the Corporation recognized previously unrecognized investment tax credits.

4.  Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA
A description and reconciliation of certain non-IFRS measures used by management

In addition to the primary measures of earnings and earnings per share (basic and diluted) in accordance with IFRS, the Corporation includes EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) in this quarterly statement. The Corporation has provided this measure because it believes this information is used by certain investors to assess financial performance and that EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Corporation's principal business activities prior to consideration of how these activities are financed and how the results are taxed in the various jurisdictions.  Each of the components of this measure are calculated in accordance with IFRS, but EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS, and the Corporation's method of calculation may not be comparable with that of other companies. Accordingly, EBITDA should not be used as an alternative to net income as determined in accordance with IFRS or as an alternative to cash provided by or used in operations.

EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $43.1 million, compared to $34.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 24.2% on a year-over-year basis.  Increased revenue and gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2015 relative to the same quarter of 2014 is the primary cause for the current increase in EBITDA.

5.  Liquidity and Capital Resources
A discussion of Magellan's cash flow, liquidity, credit facilities and other disclosures

The Corporation's liquidity needs can be met through a variety of sources including cash on hand, cash provided by operations, short-term borrowings from its credit facility and accounts receivable securitization program, and long-term debt and equity capacity.  Principal uses of cash are to fund liabilities as they become due, finance capital expenditures, fund debt repayments, pay dividends and provide flexibility for new investment opportunities.  Based on current funds available and expected cash flow from operating activities, management believes that the Corporation has sufficient funds available to meet its liquidity requirements at any point in time.  However, if cash from operating activities is lower than expected or capital projects exceed current estimates, or if the Corporation incurs major unanticipated expenses, it may be required to seek additional capital in the form of debt or equity or a combination of both.

The Corporation continues to invest in capital expenditures to enhance its manufacturing capabilities in various geographies and to support new customer programs.  The Corporation invested $25.3 million in acquiring the assets of Ripak in the fourth quarter of 2015.  The majority of the decrease in intangibles and other assets in the current quarter of 2015 is a result of deposits made on capital equipment in prior periods being capitalized in the fourth quarter of 2015.

On September 30, 2014, the Corporation amended its operating credit agreement with its existing lenders. Under the terms of the amended agreement, the maximum amount available under the operating credit facility was amended to a Canadian dollar limit of $95.0 million (down from $115.0 million) plus a United States dollar limit of $35.0 million, and the addition of a British pound £11.0 million limit with a maturity date of September 30, 2018. The operating credit agreement also includes a Canadian $50.0 million uncommitted accordion provision which provides Magellan with the option to increase the size of the operating credit facility to $200.0 million.  Extensions of the facility are subject to mutual consent of the syndicate of lenders and the Corporation. Pursuant to the amendment of the operating credit agreement, the guarantee of the facility by the Chairman of the Board of the Corporation, which had supported the Corporation since 2005, was released. The credit agreement was amended on December 04, 2015 to include a short term bridge credit facility that increased the operating credit facility by US$10 million ($13.8 million at December 31, 2015).  The bridge credit facility, which was arranged to enhance liquidity following the Ripak acquisition, expired on March 4, 2016.

As at December 31, 2015 the Corporation had made contractual commitments to purchase $16.0 million of capital assets.

Dividends
During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Corporation declared and paid quarterly cash dividends of $0.0575 per common share representing an aggregated dividend payment of $3.3 million.

On February 23rd, 2016, the Corporation announced that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common shares of $0.0575 per common share. The dividend will be payable on March 31, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 11, 2016.

Outstanding Share Information
The authorized capital of the Corporation consists of an unlimited number of preference shares, issuable in series, and an unlimited number of common shares. As at March 18, 2016, 58,209,001 common shares were outstanding and no preference shares were outstanding.

6.  Financial Instruments
A summary of Magellan's financial instruments

Derivative Contracts
The Corporation operates internationally, which gives rise to a risk that its income, cash flows and shareholders' equity may be adversely impacted by fluctuations in foreign exchange rates.  Currency risk arises because the amount of the local currency receivable or payable for transactions denominated in foreign currencies may vary due to changes in exchange rates and because the non-Canadian dollar denominated financial statements of the Corporation's subsidiaries may vary on consolidation into the reporting currency of Canadian dollars.  The Corporation from time to time may use derivative financial instruments to help manage foreign exchange risk with the objective of reducing transaction exposures and the resulting volatility of the Corporation's earnings. The Corporation does not trade in derivatives for speculative purposes.  Under these contracts the Corporation is obligated to purchase specified amounts at predetermined dates and exchange rates.  These contracts are matched with anticipated cash flows in United States dollars. The counterparties to the foreign currency contracts are all major financial institutions with high credit ratings.  The Corporation had no material foreign exchange contracts outstanding at December 31, 2015.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
The Corporation does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or reasonably are likely to have a material effect on its financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources. As a result, the Corporation is not exposed materially to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if it had engaged in these arrangements.

7.  Related Party Transactions
A summary of Magellan's transactions with related parties

There were no material related party transactions recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015.

8.  Risk Factors
A summary of risks and uncertainties facing Magellan

The Corporation manages a number of risks in each of its businesses in order to achieve an acceptable level of risk without hindering the ability to maximize returns. Management has procedures to help identify and manage significant operational and financial risks.

For more information in relation to the risks inherent in Magellan's business, reference is made to the information under "Risk Factors" in the Corporation's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2015 and to the information under "Risks Inherent in Magellan's Business" in the Corporation's Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2015, which have been filed with SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

9.  Outlook
The outlook for Magellan's business in 2016

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), global passenger traffic in 2015 grew by 6.5% compared to 2014 levels.  This was the strongest growth rate since the post-financial crisis rebound in 2010, and was well above the 10-year average of 5.5%.  Airline profitability was also reported to be the highest since 2010 and is forecast to rise further in 2016, as low fuel prices continue to be a boost to airline's bottom line.  Notwithstanding a strong performance in 2015, industry experts are signaling that commercial aircraft markets will flatten due to sluggish economies in China, Latin America and emerging markets.  These are regions of the world where the largest future growth rate in the commercial market is expected to come from.

Airbus and Boeing still plan to either maintain or increase civil aircraft production rates in 2016 and 2017.  Airbus' A320 rate increases to 44 per month in the first quarter of 2016 and then to 46 per month in the second quarter of 2016.  Boeing's 737 rate will remain at 42 per month for 2016 and is planned to go to 47 per month in 2017.  The 767 rate increases to 2 per month and 787 to 12 per month in 2016.

The regional jet market has been experiencing the same upbeat trend as large commercial airliners.  The strongest segment of the market lies in the 90 – 110 seat class where Embraer with their new E2 series of aircraft will be the dominant player.  Bombardier with its C-Series aircraft is their direct competitor.  Both aircraft are powered by Pratt & Whitney's new PW1000 geared turbofan engine upon which Magellan is seeking to secure long term market share on certain components.

Regional turboprops are not fairing as well as jets. ATR reported that their orders were down 50% in 2015 because of slowing economies in the two regions of the world that comprise the majority of their sales, Latin America and Asia.  Low oil prices have also contributed to this decline, as the advantage of the turboprops' lower operating cost when compared with a jet is diminished when oil prices are low.

According to Forecast International, the business jet market in 2015 underwent a complete trend reversal between the light/medium and large aircraft segments.  Where the demand for light/medium jets had been weak, it strengthened by the end of 2015 as improvements in the US economy began to unlock latent demand.  Conversely, the stronger large business jet market began to weaken due to economic slowdowns in China, Latin America and Russia.  Honeywell's annual outlook stated that sluggish economic growth and political tensions are driving a more reserved approach to purchasing new aircraft.  Despite this, it is still believed that the business jet market will recover as economic conditions improve in key geographic regions.

At the end of 2015, the entire civil helicopter market was experiencing a negative downturn.  By example, Sikorsky reported that their commercial helicopter sales fell in 2015 to just 25% of that in 2014, which was primarily due to the decline in the energy sector.  Regardless, manufacturers are still optimistic about the market and continue to develop new programs, banking on an eventual return to strength.

In the defense market, economic constraints have put significant pressure on most defense budgets worldwide, however countries made nervous by various global security threats, are withdrawing budget reductions to focus on immediate defense priorities.  Economics are also forcing countries to delay fleet modernization programs, which will mean extending production on certain legacy platforms, to bridge the gap.  To further unsettle the market, some new program awards have been reversed after the successful bidder was announced, such as Poland's withdrawal of their decision to award Airbus Helicopters a contract for 50 new utility helicopters under their Technical Modernization Program.  Finally, contractors in the United States seeking to fill the gap left by sequestration budget cuts with foreign military sales, face a new challenge with a strong US dollar; competing against capable platforms sold in a country's native currency.

The Corporation continues to monitor the F-35 program developments closely.  Aircraft are currently flying at eight different operating locations across the United States.  The US Marine Corps declared combat-ready Initial Operational Capability ("IOC") in July 2015, with the US Air Force and Navy intending to attain IOC mid-2016 and 2018, respectively. The F-35 program continues to grow and accelerate.  The program achieved planned deliveries of 45 aircraft in 2015.  There are 53 aircraft planned for 2016, with a total of 870 airplanes planned for delivery over the next six years.  Magellan is currently commencing activities to support increased production rates.
