"We continued to advance the maturity and strength of our contract portfolio in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 by achieving important development milestones across each of our major product segments, which include Space Launch, Missile Defense and Tactical Systems," said GenCorp President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Seymour. "These results, coupled with the significant priority our customers place on our products, have allowed us to continue to expand our backlog and improve our capital structure. Total contract backlog eclipsed $3 billion during the quarter while we repurchased $46 million par value of convertible notes, closed on a $300 million amended credit facility and a $100 million delayed draw credit facility, and repurchased an additional 3.0 million shares of our common stock. In addition, we continue to remain on schedule with the integration of Rocketdyne and the ongoing restructuring activity of the new, combined business. Collectively, this progress strengthens a foundation that will enable us to create value for all of our stakeholders well into the future."

(1)  Includes expenses of $6.9 million, 1.7% of net sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and expenses of $13.6 million, 1.9% of net sales, in the first half of fiscal 2014 related to the following purchase accounting adjustments, all of which are not allocable to the Company's U.S. government contracts, for the acquisition of United Technologies Corporation's ("UTC") Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (the "Rocketdyne Business"): (i) depreciation associated with the step-up in fair value of tangible assets; (ii) amortization of intangible assets associated with the Rocketdyne Business acquisition; and (iii) cost of sales associated with the step-up in fair value of inventory.   

The increase in net sales in the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2014 was primarily related to activity from the Rocketdyne Business which was acquired on June 14, 2013. The Rocketdyne Business contributed $173.3 million and $334.7 million, of net sales during the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2014, respectively. However, business in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 continued to experience sales fluctuations which began in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 driven by the transition of the Standard Missile 3 Block IB contract from a cost reimbursable development contract to a fixed price production contract as a result of a favorable acquisition decision. 

Sales on the Standard Missile 3 Block IIA contract, the Missile Defense Agency's (the "MDA") newest member of the Standard Missile family, were also lower for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2014 when compared to the same periods in fiscal 2013, reflecting work entering the latter stages of planned development activity in preparation for an expected U.S. government acquisition decision to enter low-rate initial production. This contract is being conducted by the MDA jointly with Japan and supports a critical need to provide regional missile defense capability supporting U.S. and Japanese interests in Asia and around the world.

In addition, the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2014 sales recorded on the Standard Missile 1 contract were significantly lower as compared to second quarter and first half of fiscal 2013 as re-grain motor deliveries have largely been completed on the latest Foreign Military Sales ("FMS") order for international customers. This kind of FMS contract intermittency is typical of the Company's recent history on the Standard Missile 1 contract.

While, in aggregate, the Standard Missile family of contracts recorded a sales reduction totaling $39.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and $77.5 million for the first half of fiscal 2014, as compared to the same prior year periods, considerable progress has been made in advancing the maturity of the Missile Defense product line. 

In the space launch program area, the Atlas V solid rocket booster production program saw a decrease in sales of $5.8 million when compared to the second quarter of last year and a decrease of $4.8 million for the first half of fiscal 2014, attributable to a difference in timing of booster deliveries during the same prior year periods. 

Antares AJ26 engine sales were impacted during the second quarter of fiscal 2014 by the failure of an engine during an evaluation test in support of the Antares booster engine program. This action resulted in a decrease of $10.8 million of sales during the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and a decrease of $11.8 million for the first half of fiscal 2014 as compared to the same periods last year. 

In the tactical propulsion product area, a decrease of $11.4 million in sales during the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and a decrease in sales of $18.5 million for the first half of fiscal 2014 as compared to the same periods last year were recorded as development work on the T-3 IIA and IIB contracts was completed and this contract is now transitioning to the next phase. 

The Company's fiscal year ends on November 30 of each year. The fiscal year of the Company's subsidiary, Aerojet Rocketdyne, ends on the last Saturday of November. As a result of the 2013 calendar, Aerojet Rocketdyne had 13 weeks of operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to 14 weeks of operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The additional week of operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 accounted for $27.8 million in additional net sales.

The decrease in the segment margin before environmental remediation provision adjustments, retirement benefit plan expense, and unusual items in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013, was primarily due to (i) cost growth and an engine test anomaly on the Antares AJ26 program which resulted in a $13.5 million, 3.4% of net sales, impact; (ii) cost growth of $5.6 million, 1.4% of net sales, on the Standard Missile program primarily associated with increased investment in the early production phase of the Standard Missile 3 Block IB contract and Standard Missile 3 Block IIA development contract as it completes qualification and (iii) Rocketdyne purchase accounting adjustments, which are not allocable to the Company's U.S. government contracts, of $6.9 million, 1.7% of net sales.

The decrease in the segment margin before environmental remediation provision adjustments, retirement benefit plan expense, and unusual items in the first half of fiscal 2014 compared to the first half of fiscal 2013, was primarily due to (i) cost growth and an engine test anomaly on the Antares AJ26 program which resulted in a $13.5 million, 1.9% of net sales, impact; (ii) cost growth of $10.3 million, 1.4% of net sales, on the Standard Missile program primarily associated with reduced sales volume and increased investment in the early production phase of the Standard Missile 3 Block IB contract and Standard Missile 3 Block IIA development contract as it completes qualification; and (iii) Rocketdyne purchase accounting adjustments,which are not allocable to the Company's U.S. government contracts, of $13.6 million, 1.9% of net sales.

A summary of the Company's backlog is as follows:

  May 31, November 30,
    2014    2013 
  (In billions)
Funded backlog $ 2.0 $ 1.7
Unfunded backlog  1.1  0.8
Total contract backlog $ 3.1 $ 2.5

The increase in backlog from November 30, 2013 is primarily due to receipt of large multi-year awards on the Atlas V and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense programs, increasing the Company's confidence in the strength of future sales.

Total backlog includes both funded backlog (unfilled orders for which funding is authorized, appropriated and contractually obligated by the customer) and unfunded backlog (firm orders for which funding has not been appropriated). Indefinite delivery and quantity contracts and unexercised options are not reported in total backlog. Backlog is subject to funding delays or program restructurings/cancellations which are beyond the Company's control.  

The Rocketdyne Business integration costs incurred and capitalized through May 31, 2014, all of which the Company believes will be allocated to the Company's U.S. government contracts, totaled $22.2 million. Integration activities are expected to continue at least into the first half of fiscal 2015 when the integration of the Rocketdyne Business into the Company's enterprise resource planning ("ERP") system is scheduled to be complete. The final determination as to whether these integration costs are reimbursable from the U.S. government is based on the Company's planned integration savings exceeding its restructuring costs by a factor of at least two to one. The Company believes that the anticipated restructuring savings will exceed restructuring costs by a factor of at least two to one; therefore, the costs were deferred as the Company believes that subsequent recovery of said costs through the pricing of our products and services to the U.S. government is probable. The Company reviews on a quarterly basis the probability of recovery of these costs. Costs and related anticipated savings are included in the Company's rates and reflected in its results of operations. The costs are not billable on the contracts until agreement with the U.S. government is reached. Capital expenditures in the first half of fiscal 2014 related to the consolidation of Rocketdyne facilities totaled $8.7 million. These consolidation activities are part of an overall integration plan, that, when completed, are expected to improve the overall operating efficiency of the newly combined business.

Real Estate Segment

Sales and segment performance for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $1.6 million and $0.9 million, respectively, compared to $1.2 million and $1.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, respectively. Net sales and segment performance consist primarily of rental property operations.

The City of Folsom ("Folsom") gave final approval to a Development Agreement ("DA") for the Company's Hillsborough at Easton Project which vests the approved entitlements and grants development rights for 30 years. The DA is a formal contract between the landowner and Folsom and vests the rights, development specifications, zoning, and other granted entitlements for the approved development plan and protects against potentially undesirable, unilateral changes by Folsom within the 30-year period while also delineating other details including development impact fees, bond districts and development financing mechanisms over the life of the agreement. With the completion of this important DA for the Hillsborough at Easton Project, a total of three projects within the Easton Master Plan areas are now entitled with completed long-term DAs. They include Easton Place, Glenborough at Easton and Hillsborough at Easton. Because the terms of the DA are integral to the execution of development work, potential buyers/developers now have improved profit visibility and decreased financial risk for subsequent development of the affected property.

Retirement Benefit Plans

As of May 31, 2014 and November 30, 2013, the Company's tax-qualified pension plans' assets were as follows: 

  May 31, November 30,
  2014     2013  
  (In millions)
Defined benefit tax-qualified pension plans' assets $ 1,257.3 $ 1,258.4

As of the last measurement date at November 30, 2013, the Company's unfunded pension obligation for the tax-qualified pension plans was $261.7 million. The Company does not expect to make any significant cash contributions to its government contractor business segment, Aerojet Rocketdyne, tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan until fiscal 2015, which are recoverable through its U.S. government contracts. Additionally, the Company does not expect to make any significant cash contributions to the GenCorp tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan until fiscal 2018 or later, which are not recoverable through its U.S. government contracts. The Company estimates that approximately 91% of its unfunded pension obligation as of November 30, 2013 is related to Aerojet Rocketdyne which will be recoverable through its U.S. government contracts.

The funded status of the pension plans may be adversely affected by the investment experience of the plans' assets, by any changes in U.S. law and by changes in the statutory interest rates used by tax-qualified pension plans in the U.S. to calculate funding requirements. Accordingly, if the performance of the Company's plans' assets does not meet assumptions, if there are changes to the Internal Revenue Service regulations or other applicable law or if other actuarial assumptions are modified, future contributions to the underfunded pension plans could be higher than the Company expects.

The Company evaluates its operating segments based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is segment performance. Segment performance represents net sales from continuing operations less applicable costs, expenses and provisions for unusual items relating to the segment operations. Segment performance excludes corporate income and expenses, provisions for unusual items not related to the segment operations, interest expense, interest income, and income taxes. The Company believes that segment performance provides information useful to investors in understanding its underlying operational performance. Specifically, the Company believes the exclusion of the items listed above permits an evaluation and a comparison of results for on-going business operations. It is on this basis that management internally assesses the financial performance of its segments.

Use of Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to segment performance (discussed above), the Company provides the Non-GAAP financial measure of its operational performance called Adjusted EBITDAP. The Company uses this metric to further its understanding of the historical and prospective consolidated core operating performance of its segments, net of expenses resulting from the Company's corporate activities in the ordinary, on-going and customary course of its operations. Further, the Company believes that to effectively compare the core operating performance metrics from period to period on a historical and prospective basis, the metric should exclude items relating to retirement benefits (pension and postretirement benefits), significant non-cash expenses, the impacts of financing decisions on the earnings, and items incurred outside the ordinary, on-going and customary course of its operations. Accordingly, the Company defines Adjusted EBITDAP as GAAP loss from continuing operations before income taxes adjusted by interest expense, interest income, depreciation and amortization, retirement benefit expense, and unusual items which the Company does not believe are reflective of such ordinary, on-going and customary activities. Adjusted EBITDAP does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to, net loss, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

In addition to segment performance and Adjusted EBITDAP, the Company provides the Non-GAAP financial measures of free cash flow and net debt. The Company uses these financial measures, both in presenting its results to stakeholders and the investment community, and in its internal evaluation and management of the business. Management believes that these financial measures are useful because it presents the Company's business using the same tools that management uses to gauge progress in achieving its goals.

________

(1) Free Cash Flow, a Non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow excludes any mandatory debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation, as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to cash flows from operations presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes Free Cash Flow is useful as it provides supplemental information to assist investors in viewing the business using the same tools that management uses to gauge progress in achieving the Company's goals.

These measures are not recognized in accordance with GAAP, and the Company does not intend for this information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures.
