07:04 EDTLMTLockheed Martin reports Q4 EPS $3.01, consensus $2.92
Reports Q4 revenue $12.9B vs. $12.5B last year. Fourth quarter 2015 net earnings included a special charge for workforce reductions of $67 million, which decreased net earnings $44 million, or $0.14 per share; and non-recoverable transaction costs of $45 million associated with the acquisition of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation and the Corporation's strategic review of its government IT and technical services businesses, which decreased net earnings $28 million, or $0.09 per share. These costs were offset by the recognition of a full-year U.S. research and development tax credit resulting from the enactment of tax legislation in the fourth quarter of 2015, which increased net earnings $71 million, or $0.23 per share. Fourth quarter 2014 net earnings included a special charge for a non-cash goodwill impairment of $119 million, which decreased net earnings $107 million, or $0.33 per share, partially offset by the recognition of a full-year R&D tax credit due to the temporary reinstatement of the R&D tax credit in the fourth quarter of 2014, which increased earnings $45 million, or $0.14 per share.
07:03 EDTLMTLockheed Martin to separate and combine IT/tech service units with Leidos
Lockheed Martin (LMT) has entered into a definitive agreement to separate and combine its realigned Information Systems & Global Solutions business segment with Leidos (LDOS) in a tax-efficient Reverse Morris Trust transaction, unlocking $5 billion in estimated enterprise value for Lockheed Martin stockholders. The agreement aims to align IS&GS's business with an industry leader in government IT and technical services, creating an enterprise capable of providing unparalleled solutions in industries from national security to health and life sciences. Subject to regulatory approvals, the $5B transaction includes a $1.8B one-time special cash payment to Lockheed Martin, which the Corporation intends to use to repay debt, pay dividends, and/or repurchase its stock. The cash payment is subject to adjustment on the terms set forth in the transaction documents. Lockheed Martin stockholders will receive approximately 50.5% of the outstanding equity of Leidos on a fully diluted basis with an estimated value of $3.2B. Leidos' existing shareholders will continue to hold the remaining approximately 49.5% of the outstanding shares of Leidos. The transaction structure, which is subject to market conditions, is currently contemplated to be a tax-efficient split-off transaction, which would result in a decrease in Lockheed Martin share count. The transaction is also subject to Leidos shareholder approval and completion of customary conditions, including receipt of opinions of tax counsel. The transaction is expected to close in the third or fourth quarter of 2016. Until closing, IS&GS will continue to operate as a business segment of the Corporation.
