Goodrich Announces Fourth Quarter 2009 Results

Goodrich reported a fourth quarter 2009 net income of $105 million.


The $376 million decrease in sales is attributable to sales reductions of approximately $148 million related to foreign currency exchange rate impacts, approximately $125 million for lower reported sales resulting from the formation of the engine controls joint venture with Rolls-Royce and the impact of current economic conditions on the company's sales.

For the full year 2009 compared with the full year 2008, Goodrich sales changes by market channel were as follows:

The change in net income per diluted share is primarily attributable to the impact of lower aftermarket sales, which were partially offset by cost containment initiatives, and included several other factors as noted below:

Net cash provided by operating activities, minus capital expenditures, for the full year 2009 was $488 million, a decrease of $14 million from the same period in 2008. During the full year 2008, the company received cash totaling $115 million from Rolls-Royce related to the formation of the engine controls joint venture. This decrease was partially offset by lower net cash taxes paid in 2009 of $73 million compared to 2008. The decrease was also attributable to lower income from continuing operations and higher spending on non-product inventory, partially offset by lower capital expenditures and lower growth in working capital. During the full year of 2009, Goodrich contributed $238 million to its worldwide pension plans, compared to contributions of $227 million during the full year of 2008. Capital expenditures were $169 million for the full year of 2009, compared to capital expenditures of $285 million for the full year of 2008. During the full year of 2009, cash flow provided by operating activities, minus capital expenditures, was 87 percent of income from continuing operations, compared to 73 percent for the full year of 2008.
