NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(In thousands, except per share amounts)

(Unaudited)

Note 1. Basis of presentation

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of Woodward, Inc. (“Woodward” or the “Company”) as of March 31, 2012 and for the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, included herein, have not been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly Woodward’s financial position as of March 31, 2012, and the results of operations, cash flows, and changes in stockholders’ equity for the periods presented herein. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2011 was derived from Woodward’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year then ended. The results of operations for the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results to be expected for other interim periods or for the full fiscal year. Dollar amounts contained in these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are in thousands, except per share amounts.

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included herein have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim reporting. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.

These unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in Woodward’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC and other financial information filed with the SEC.

Management is required to use estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, the reported revenues and expenses recognized during the reporting period, and certain financial statement disclosures, in the preparation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Significant estimates in these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include allowances for losses, net realizable value of inventories, warranty reserves, timing of recognition on percentage complete on long-term contracts, cost of sales incentives, useful lives of property and identifiable intangible assets, the evaluation of impairments of property, identifiable intangible assets and goodwill, income tax and valuation reserves, the valuation of assets and liabilities acquired in business combinations, assumptions used in the determination of the funded status and annual expense of pension and postretirement employee benefit plans, the valuation of stock compensation instruments granted to employees, and contingencies. Actual results could vary materially from Woodward’s estimates.

Woodward serves two significant markets – the aerospace market and the energy market. In order to better serve these markets, Woodward completed a realignment of its reportable segments at September 30, 2011 and now reports its financial results through two reportable segments – Aerospace and Energy. The Aerospace segment combines the aircraft propulsion portion of the former Turbine Systems business group, now referred to as the Aircraft Turbine Systems business group, with the Airframe Systems business group. The Energy segment combines the industrial turbine portion of the former Turbine Systems business group, now referred to as the Industrial Turbomachinery Systems business group, with the Engine Systems and Electrical Power Systems business groups.

Prior period information has been revised to be consistent with the Company’s current reportable segment structure, which is based upon how it managed its business as of September 30, 2011 and during the first half of fiscal year 2012.

Note 2. Recent accounting pronouncements

From time to time, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) or other standard-setting bodies issue new accounting pronouncements. Updates to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”).

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, “Testing Goodwill for Impairment.” ASU 2011-08 allows companies to perform a “qualitative” assessment to determine whether or not the current two-step quantitative testing method, in which a company compares the fair value of reporting units to its carrying amount including goodwill, must be followed. If a qualitative assessment indicates that it is more-likely-than-not that the fair value of a reporting unit is greater than its carrying amount, then the quantitative impairment test is not required. A company may choose to use the qualitative assessment on none, some, or all if its reporting units or to bypass the qualitative assessment and proceed directly to the two-step quantitative testing method. ASU 2011-08 is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011; however, early adoption is permitted. Woodward does not anticipate that the adoption of ASU 2011-08 will have a material impact on Woodward’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 3. Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period.

Diluted earnings per share reflects the weighted-average number of shares outstanding after the assumed conversion of all dilutive securities.

The following is a reconciliation of net earnings to basic earnings per share and diluted earnings per share:

 

     Three-Months Ending
March  31,
     Six-Months Ending

Note 4. Business acquisitions

IDS Acquisition

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, Woodward acquired all of the outstanding stock of Integral Drive Systems AG and its European companies, including their respective holding companies (“IDS”), and the assets of IDS’s business in China (collectively, the “IDS Acquisition”) for an aggregate cash purchase price of $48,412 paid to the sellers.

IDS is a developer and manufacturer of innovative power electronic systems predominantly in utility scale wind turbines and photovoltaic power plants. Additionally, IDS offers key products in power distribution and marine propulsion systems. In addition to wind turbines and photovoltaic plants, its products are used in offshore oil and gas platforms, energy storage and distribution systems, and a variety of industrial applications. IDS has been integrated into Woodward’s Energy segment.

The Company believes the IDS Acquisition expands its presence in wind converter offerings and reduces its time to market with expansion of solar energy, energy storage, and marine drives. Goodwill recorded in connection with the IDS Acquisition, which is not deductible for income tax purposes, represents the estimated value of such future opportunities, the value of potential expansion with new customers, the opportunity to further develop sales opportunities with new and acquired IDS customers, and anticipated synergies expected to be achieved through the integration of IDS into Woodward’s Energy segment.

As of March 31, 2012, an amount of $7,987 paid in connection with the IDS Acquisition was deposited into escrow accounts to secure Woodward’s ability to recover any amounts owed to Woodward by the sellers as a result of customary indemnities related to representations and warranties made by the sellers. Funds held in escrow will only be released to the sellers as specified in the related purchase agreements.

The purchase price of the IDS Acquisition is as follows:

 

Cash paid to sellers

   $  48,412   

Less cash acquired

     (1,251
  

 

 

 

Total purchase price

     47,161   

Less marketable securities acquired

     (8,463
  

 

 

 

Price paid for business assets

   $ 38,698   
  

 

 

 

The allocation of the purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed was finalized as of March 31, 2012. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction were recorded at their acquisition date fair values, while transaction costs associated with the acquisition were expensed as incurred. The Company’s allocation was based on an evaluation of the appropriate fair values and represents management’s best estimate based on available data.

The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of the IDS Acquisition:

 

Current assets

   $ 14,627   

Investments in marketable securities

     8,463   

Property, plant, and equipment

     1,954   

Goodwill

     24,188   

Intangible assets

     11,882   
  

 

 

 

Total assets acquired

     61,114   
  

 

 

 

Other current liabilities

     5,505   

Warranty accrual

     2,250   

Postretirement benefits

     434   

Deferred tax liabilities

     2,472   

Other tax—noncurrent

     3,292   
  

 

 

 

Total liabilities assumed

     13,953   
  

 

 

 

Net assets acquired

   $ 47,161   
  

 

 

 

There were no changes to the values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed during the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012. The fair value of warranty liabilities assumed represents the estimated costs to provide service for contractual warranty obligations on products sold by IDS and IDS’s business in China prior to the IDS Acquisition. The fair value of “Other tax – noncurrent” represents the estimated value of gross unrecognized tax benefits assumed.

In connection with the IDS Acquisition, Woodward acquired various marketable securities, which are not classified as cash equivalents under U.S. GAAP. These marketable securities were sold during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011 and reinvested into cash and cash equivalents consistent with Woodward’s internal investment and risk management policies. Losses on the sale of marketable securities were included in “Other (income) expense, net” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Also, in connection with the IDS Acquisition, Woodward assumed the net postretirement benefit obligations of five Swiss statutory retirement plans which are considered to be defined benefit plans under U.S. GAAP.

A summary of the intangible assets acquired, weighted-average useful lives, and amortization methods follows:

The operating results of the IDS Acquisition are included in Woodward’s Consolidated Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Earnings beginning April 15, 2011. Pro forma financial disclosures have not been presented, as the IDS Acquisition was not significant to Woodward’s financial position or results of operations. The Company incurred transaction costs of $2,396 during the year ending September 30, 2011, which were included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings. No additional transactions costs were incurred in the six-months ending March 31, 2012.

Note 5. Financial instruments and fair value measurements

The estimated fair values of Woodward’s financial instruments were as follows:

     (464,137     (410,728     (482,776     (425,246

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, which include investments in money market funds and reverse repurchase agreements for the overnight investment of excess cash in U.S. government and government agency obligations, are assumed to be equal to their carrying amounts. Cash and cash equivalents have short-term maturities and market interest rates. Woodward’s cash and cash equivalents include funds deposited or invested in the U.S. and overseas that are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). Woodward believes that its deposited and invested funds are held by or invested with credit worthy financial institutions or counterparties.

Investments related to the deferred compensation program used to provide deferred compensation benefits to certain employees are carried at market value.

The fair values of short-term borrowings at variable interest rates are assumed to be equal to their carrying amounts because such borrowings are expected to be repaid or settled for their carrying amounts within a short period of time.

The fair value of long-term debt was estimated based on a model that discounted future principal and interest payments at interest rates available to the Company at the end of the period for similar debt of the same maturity, which is a Level 2 input as defined below. The weighted-average interest rates used to estimate the fair value of long-term debt were as follows:

 

     March 31,
2012
    September 30,
2011
 

Weighted-average interest rate used to estimate fair value

     2.5     2.6

Financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet are categorized based upon a fair value hierarchy established by U.S. GAAP, which prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value into the following levels:

Level 1: Inputs based on quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

Level 2: Quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable and can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3: Inputs reflect management’s best estimates and assumptions of what market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the measurement date. The inputs are unobservable in the market and significant to the valuation of the instruments.

The table below presents information about Woodward’s financial assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques Woodward utilized to determine such fair value. Woodward had no financial liabilities required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2012 or September 30, 2011.

Investments in money market funds: Woodward sometimes invests excess cash in money market funds not insured by the FDIC. Woodward believes that the investments in money market funds are on deposit with creditworthy financial institutions and that the funds are highly liquid. The investments in money market funds are reported at fair value, with realized gains from interest income realized in earnings, and included in “Cash and cash equivalents.” The fair values of Woodward’s investments in money market funds are based on the quoted market prices for the net asset value of the various money market funds.

Equity securities: Woodward holds marketable equity securities, through investments in various mutual funds, related to its deferred compensation program. Based on Woodward’s intentions regarding these instruments, marketable equity securities are classified as trading securities. The trading securities are reported at fair value, with realized gains and losses recognized in earnings. The trading securities are included in “Other current assets.” The fair values of Woodward’s trading securities are based on the quoted market prices for the net asset value of the various mutual funds.

Note 6. Derivative instruments and hedging activities

Woodward is exposed to global market risks, including the effect of changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates, changes in certain commodity prices and fluctuations in various producer indices. From time to time, Woodward enters into derivative instruments for risk management purposes only, including derivatives designated as accounting hedges and/or those utilized as economic hedges. Woodward uses interest rate related derivative instruments to manage its exposure to fluctuations of interest rates. Woodward does not enter into or issue derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

By using derivative and/or hedging instruments to manage its risk exposure, Woodward is subject, from time to time, to credit risk and market risk on those derivative instruments. Credit risk arises from the potential failure of the counterparty to perform under the terms of the derivative and/or hedging instrument. When the fair value of a derivative contract is positive, the counterparty owes Woodward, which creates credit risk for Woodward. Woodward mitigates this credit risk by entering into transactions with only credit worthy counterparties. Market risk arises from the potential adverse effects on the value of derivative and/or hedging instruments that result from a change in interest rates, commodity prices, or foreign currency exchange rates. Woodward mitigates this market risk by establishing and monitoring parameters that limit the types and degree of market risk that may be undertaken.

Derivatives in foreign currency relationships

Woodward did not enter into any hedging transactions during the three or six-months ending March 31, 2012 and was not a party to any derivative instruments as of March 31, 2012 or September 30, 2011.

In September 2010, Woodward entered into a foreign currency exchange rate contract to purchase €39,000 for approximately $52,549 in early December 2010. An unrealized gain of $579 on this derivative was carried at fair market value in “Other current assets” as of September 30, 2010. In December 2010, a loss of $1,033 was realized on the settlement of this forward contract and was recorded in “Other (income) expense, net.”

The objective of this derivative instrument, which was not designated as an accounting hedge, was to limit the risk of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on certain short-term intercompany loan balances.

The following table discloses the remaining unrecognized gains and losses in Woodward’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets associated with terminated derivative instruments that were previously entered into by the Company:

During fiscal year 2010, Woodward began construction of a new forty-eight thousand square foot system test facility in Rockford, Illinois. In the first half of fiscal year 2012, Woodward placed into service assets totaling $16,738 associated with the new system test facility, the majority of which is included in “Buildings and improvements.” As of March 31, 2012, $5,247 of assets related to the system test facility remained as construction in progress and are expected to be placed into service by the end of fiscal year 2012. The facility, which houses numerous environmental system test cells and a vibration lab, will support, among other development projects, Woodward’s Aerospace segment development efforts of next generation fuel systems for aircraft turbines.

The increase in “Computer equipment and software” of $16,166 was primarily related to assets that were placed into service during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 associated with a new enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) system for a group within Woodward’s Aerospace segment.

For the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, Woodward had capitalized interest that would have otherwise been included in interest expense as follows:

Woodward tests goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level on an annual basis and more often if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. The impairment tests consist of comparing the implied fair value of each identified reporting unit with its carrying amount including goodwill. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its implied fair value, Woodward compares the implied fair value of goodwill with the recorded carrying amount of goodwill. If the carrying amount of goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of goodwill, an impairment loss would be recognized to reduce the carrying amount to its implied fair value.

Woodward completed its annual goodwill impairment test as of July 31, 2011 during the quarter ended September 30, 2011. As a part of that test, the fair value of each of Woodward’s reporting units was determined using a discounted cash flow method. This method represents a Level 3 input and incorporates various estimates and assumptions, the most significant being projected revenue growth rates, operating earnings margins, and forecasted cash flows based on the discount rate and terminal growth rate. Management projects revenue growth rates, operating earnings margins and cash flows based on each reporting unit’s current operational results, expected performance and operational strategies over a five or ten-year period. These projections are adjusted to reflect economic conditions and the demand for certain products and require considerable management judgment.

Forecasted cash flows used in the July 31, 2011 impairment test were discounted using weighted-average cost of capital assumptions from 10.0% to 10.2%. The terminal values of the forecasted cash flows were calculated using the Gordon Growth Model and assumed an annual compound growth rate after five or ten years of 4.3%. These inputs, which are unobservable in the market, represent management’s best estimate of what market participants would use in determining the present value of the Company’s forecasted cash flows. Changes in these estimates and assumptions can have a significant impact on the fair value of forecasted cash flows. Woodward evaluated the reasonableness of the reporting units resulting fair values utilizing a market multiple method.

The results of Woodward’s goodwill impairment tests performed as of July 31, 2011 indicated the estimated fair value of each reporting unit was substantially in excess of its carrying value, and accordingly, no impairment existed.

As part of the Company’s ongoing monitoring efforts, Woodward will continue to consider the global economic environment and its potential impact on Woodward’s business at a reporting unit level in assessing goodwill recoverability. There can be no assurance that Woodward’s estimates and assumptions regarding forecasted cash flows of certain reporting units, the period or strength of the current economic recovery, or the other inputs used in forecasting the present value of forecasted cash flows will prove to be accurate projections of future performance.

Note 12. Credit facilities, short-term borrowings and long-term debt

As of December 31, 2011, Woodward had a $225,000 revolving credit facility related to unsecured financing arrangements with a syndicate of U.S. banks. The revolving credit facility agreement provided for an option to increase available borrowings to $350,000, subject to the lenders’ participation, and had an expiration date of October 2012. The interest rate on borrowings under the revolving credit facility agreement varied with LIBOR, the federal funds rate, or the prime rate.

On January 4, 2012, the $225,000 revolving credit facility was amended and restated by the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement”) entered into between Woodward and a syndicate of nine lenders led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. The Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement extended the existing revolving credit facility’s maturity to January 2017. The borrowing capacity increased from $225,000 to $400,000 and the option, subject to the lenders’ participation, to expand the commitment increased from $125,000 to $200,000, for a total borrowing capacity of up to $600,000. Borrowings under the Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement generally bear interest at LIBOR plus 0.95% to 1.525%. Outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2012 were $27,500, at an effective interest rate of 1.29%.

The Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement contains certain covenants customary with such agreements, which are generally consistent with the covenants applicable to Woodward’s long-term debt agreements, and contains customary events of default, including certain cross default provisions related to Woodward’s other outstanding debt arrangements in excess of $30,000, the occurrence of which would permit the lenders to accelerate the amounts due thereunder. In addition, the Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement increases the minimum required consolidated net worth of Woodward to a base of $725,000, plus 50% of Woodward’s positive net income for the prior fiscal year and plus 50% of Woodward’s net cash proceeds resulting from certain issuances of stock, subject to certain adjustments. Woodward also made amendments to its existing Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated as of October 1, 2008 (the “Term Loan Agreement”), that provided for certain changes to, among other things, the affirmative, negative and financial covenants of the Term Loan Agreement consistent with the covenant provisions in the Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement.

Woodward’s obligations under the Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement and the Term Loan Agreement are guaranteed by Woodward FST, Inc., MPC Products Corporation and Woodward HRT, Inc., each of which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Woodward.

In connection with the Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement, Woodward incurred $2,185 in financing costs, which were deferred and will be amortized to “Interest expense” using the straight-line method over the life of the agreement. The remaining $100 of deferred financing costs incurred in connection with the prior $225,000 revolving credit facility were expensed in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 and are included in “Interest expense” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

On January 5, 2012, a Chinese subsidiary of Woodward entered into a local credit facility with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Company under which it has the ability to borrow up to either $5,000, or the local currency equivalent of $5,000. Any cash borrowings under the local Chinese credit facility are secured by a parent guarantee from Woodward. The Chinese subsidiary may utilize the local facility for cash borrowings to support its local operating cash needs. Local currency borrowings on the Chinese credit facility are charged interest at the prevailing interest rate offered by the People’s Bank of China on the date of borrowing, plus a margin equal to 25% of that prevailing rate. U.S. dollar borrowings on the credit facility are charged interest at the lender’s cost of borrowing rate at the date of borrowing, plus a margin of 3%.

At March 31, 2012, the Chinese subsidiary had outstanding cash borrowings of $5,000 which were fully secured by a $5,000 parent guarantee issued by Woodward. The U.S. dollar borrowings were made at an effective interest rate of 7.45%.

Woodward also has other foreign lines of credit and foreign overdraft facilities at various financial institutions, which are generally reviewed annually for renewal and are subject to the usual terms and conditions applied by the financial institutions. Pursuant to the terms of the related facility agreements, Woodward’s foreign performance guarantee facilities are limited in use to providing performance guarantees to third parties. As of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, there were no outstanding borrowings from Woodward’s other foreign lines of credit and foreign overdraft facilities.

At March 31, 2012, Woodward held $56,329 in cash and cash equivalents, and had total outstanding debt of $443,228 with additional borrowing availability of $365,728 under its revolving credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit, and $15,351 under its other foreign lines of credit and foreign overdraft facilities.

Note 16. Income taxes

U.S. GAAP requires that the interim period tax provision be determined as follows:

 

   

At the end of each quarter, Woodward estimates the tax that will be provided for the current fiscal year stated as a percentage of estimated “ordinary income.” The term ordinary income refers to earnings from continuing operations before income taxes, excluding significant unusual or infrequently occurring items.

The estimated annual effective rate is applied to the year-to-date ordinary income at the end of each quarter to compute the estimated year-to-date tax applicable to ordinary income. The tax expense or benefit related to ordinary income in each quarter is the difference between the most recent year-to-date and the prior quarter year-to-date computations.

 

   

The tax effects of significant unusual or infrequently occurring items are recognized as discrete items in the interim period in which the events occur. The impact of changes in tax laws or rates on deferred tax amounts, the effects of changes in judgment about beginning of the year valuation allowances, and changes in tax reserves resulting from the finalization of tax audits or reviews are examples of significant unusual or infrequently occurring items that are recognized as discrete items in the interim period in which the event occurs.

The determination of the annual effective tax rate is based upon a number of significant estimates and judgments, including the estimated annual pretax income of Woodward in each tax jurisdiction in which it operates, and the development of tax planning strategies during the year. In addition, as a global commercial enterprise, Woodward’s tax expense can be impacted by changes in tax rates or laws, the finalization of tax audits and reviews, changes in the estimate of the amount of undistributed foreign earnings that Woodward considers indefinitely reinvested, as well as other factors that cannot be predicted with certainty. As such, there can be significant volatility in interim tax provisions.

The following table sets forth the tax expense and the effective tax rate for Woodward’s income from operations:

 

     Three-Months Ending
March 31,
    Six-Months Ending
March 31,
 
     2012     2011     2012     2011  

Earnings before income taxes

   $ 54,038      $ 46,487      $ 94,214      $ 77,962   

Income tax expense

Effective tax rate

     28.3     31.0     28.7     30.1

Income taxes for the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012 included a tax benefit of $3,326 related to a reduction in the anticipated amount of undistributed earnings of certain of Woodward’s foreign subsidiaries that were previously expected to be repatriated into the U.S. within the foreseeable future. Woodward now anticipates that a portion of those earnings will remain indefinitely invested outside the U.S. to support the growth of its foreign operations, and has accordingly reversed the deferred tax liability associated with repatriating those earnings.

Income taxes for the six-months ending March 31, 2011 included an expense reduction of $1,890 related to the retroactive extension of the U.S. research and experimentation tax credit.

Worldwide unrecognized tax benefits were as follows:

 

     March 31,
2012
     September 30,
2011
 

Gross liability

   $ 17,947          $ 16,931   

Amount that would impact Woodward’s effective tax rate, if recognized, net of expected offsetting adjustments

     15,322            14,078   

At this time, Woodward estimates that it is reasonably possible that the liability for unrecognized tax benefits will decrease by as much as $1,122 in the next twelve months due to the completion of reviews by tax authorities and the expiration of certain statutes of limitations.

Woodward recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in tax expense. Woodward had accrued interest and penalties of the following:

 

     March 31,
2012
     September 30,
2011
 

Accrued interest and penalties

   $ 2,383          $ 1,989   

Woodward’s tax returns are audited by U.S., state, and foreign tax authorities, and these audits are at various stages of completion at any given time. Fiscal years remaining open to examination in significant foreign jurisdictions include 2004 and forward. Woodward has been subject to U.S. Federal income tax examinations for fiscal years through 2008. Woodward is subject to U.S. state income tax examinations for fiscal years 2007 and forward.

Note 17. Retirement benefits

Woodward provides various benefits to eligible members of the Company, including contributions to various defined contribution plans, pension benefits associated with defined benefit plans, postretirement medical benefits and postretirement life insurance benefits. Eligibility requirements and benefit levels vary depending on employee location.

Defined contribution plans

Substantially all U.S. employees are eligible to participate in the U.S. defined contribution plan. The U.S. defined contribution plan allows employees to defer part of their annual income for income tax purposes into their personal 401(k) accounts. The Company makes contributions to eligible employee accounts, which are also deferred for employee personal income tax purposes. Certain foreign employees are also eligible to participate in foreign plans.

Most U.S. employees with at least two years of service receive an annual contribution of Woodward stock, equal to 5% of their eligible prior year wages, to their personal Woodward Retirement Savings Plan accounts. In February 2012, Woodward fulfilled the annual Woodward stock contribution using shares held in treasury stock by issuing 209 shares of common stock for a total value of $9,335. In the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, the annual Woodward stock contribution totaling $9,107 was funded by way of a cash contribution to the Woodward Retirement Savings Plan, which then purchased shares of Woodward stock on the open market.

The amount of expense associated with defined contribution plans was as follows:

Defined benefit plans

Woodward has defined benefit plans that provide pension benefits for certain retired employees in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Japan and Switzerland. Woodward also provides other postretirement benefits to its employees including postretirement medical benefits and life insurance benefits. Postretirement medical benefits are provided to certain current and retired employees and their covered dependants and beneficiaries in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Life insurance benefits are provided to certain retirees in the U.S. under frozen plans which are no longer available to current employees. A September 30 measurement date is utilized to value plan assets and obligations for all of Woodward’s defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit plans.

U.S. GAAP requires that, for obligations outstanding as of September 30, 2011, the funded status reported in interim periods shall be the same asset or liability recognized in the previous year end statement of financial position adjusted for (a) subsequent accruals of net periodic benefit cost that exclude the amortization of amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income (for example, subsequent accruals of service cost, interest cost, and return on plan assets) and (b) contributions to a funded plan or benefit payments.

The amount of cash contributions made to these plans in any year is dependent upon a number of factors, including minimum funding requirements in the jurisdictions in which Woodward operates and arrangements made with trustees of certain foreign plans. As a result, the actual funding in fiscal year 2012 may differ from the current estimate. Woodward estimates its remaining cash contributions in fiscal year 2012 will be as follows:

Note 18. Stock-based compensation

Stock options

Woodward’s 2006 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”), which has been approved by Woodward’s stockholders, provides for the grant of up to 7,410 stock options to its employees and directors. Woodward believes that these awards align the interest of its employees with those of its stockholders. Stock option awards are granted with an exercise price equal to the market price of Woodward’s stock at the date of grant, and generally with a four-year vesting schedule at a vesting rate of 25% per year and a term of 10 years.

The fair value of options granted was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-valuation model using the assumptions in the following table. Woodward calculates the expected term based upon historical experience of plan participants and it represents the period of time that stock options granted are expected to be outstanding. Expected volatility is based on historical volatility using daily stock price observations. The estimated dividend yield is based upon Woodward’s historical dividend practice and the market value of its common stock. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. treasury yield curve, for periods within the contractual life of the stock option, at the time of grant.

Note 19. Commitments and contingencies

Woodward is currently involved in claims, pending or threatened litigation, other legal proceedings, investigations and/or regulatory proceedings arising in the normal course of business, including, among others, those relating to product liability claims, employment matters, workman’s compensation claims, contractual disputes, product warranty claims and alleged violations of various laws and regulations. Woodward has accrued for individual matters that it believes are likely to result in a loss when ultimately resolved using estimates of the most likely amount of loss. Legal costs are expensed as incurred and are classified in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

Woodward is partially self-insured in the U.S. for healthcare and workman’s compensation up to predetermined amounts, above which third party insurance applies. Management regularly reviews the probable outcome of these claims and proceedings, the expenses expected to be incurred, the availability and limits of the insurance coverage, and the established accruals for liabilities.

While the outcome of pending claims, proceedings and investigations cannot be predicted with certainty, management believes that any liabilities that may result from these claims, proceedings and investigations will not have a material effect on Woodward’s liquidity, financial condition, or results of operations.

In connection with the sale of the Fuel & Pneumatic product line during fiscal year 2009, Woodward assigned to a subsidiary of the purchaser its rights and responsibilities related to certain contracts with the U.S. Government. Woodward provided to the U.S. Government a customary guarantee of the purchaser’s subsidiary’s obligations under the contracts. The purchaser and its affiliates have agreed to indemnify Woodward for any liability incurred with respect to the guarantee.

In the event of a change in control of Woodward, as defined in change-in-control agreements with its current corporate officers, Woodward may be required to pay termination benefits to such officers.

Note 20. Segment information

Woodward serves two significant markets – the aerospace market and the energy market. In order to better serve these markets, Woodward completed a realignment of its reportable segments in September 2011 and now reports its financial results through two reportable segments – Aerospace and Energy. The Aerospace segment combines the aircraft propulsion portion of the former Turbine Systems business group, now referred to as the Aircraft Turbine Systems business group, with the Airframe Systems business group. The Energy segment combines the industrial turbine portion of the former Turbine Systems business group, now referred to as the Industrial Turbomachinery Systems business group, with the Engine Systems and Electrical Power Systems business groups.

Woodward uses reportable segment information internally to manage its business, including the assessment of business segment performance and decisions for the allocation of resources between segments.

The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those of the Company. Woodward evaluates segment profit or loss based on internal performance measures for each segment in a given period. In connection with that assessment, Woodward excludes matters such as charges for restructuring costs, interest income and expense, and certain gains and losses from asset dispositions.

Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures

Earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”), earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and free cash flow are financial measures not prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). Management uses EBIT to evaluate Woodward’s performance without financing and tax related considerations, as these elements may not fluctuate with operating results. Management uses EBITDA in evaluating Woodward’s operating performance, making business decisions, including developing budgets, managing expenditures and forecasting future periods, and evaluating capital structure impacts of various strategic scenarios. Management uses free cash flow, which is defined as net cash flows provided by operating activities less payments for property, plant and equipment, in reviewing the financial performance of Woodward’s various business groups and evaluating cash levels. Securities analysts, investors, and others frequently use EBIT, EBITDA and free cash flow in their evaluation of companies, particularly those with significant property, plant, and equipment, and intangible assets that are subject to amortization. The use of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. As EBIT and EBITDA exclude certain financial information compared with net earnings, the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, users of this financial information should consider the information that is excluded. Free cash flow does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs. Our calculations of EBIT, EBITDA and free cash flow may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

EBIT and EBITDA for the three and six-months ending March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 were as follows:

OVERVIEW

Operational Highlights

Quarterly Highlights

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 were $468,793, an increase of 11.9% from $418,866 for the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net sales growth as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was across both of our segments reflecting continued market share gains and consistent growth in most of the markets we serve.

Sequentially, net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 increased by $60,897, or 14.9%, to $468,793 from $407,896 for the first quarter of 2012. Historically, net sales in the first quarter have generally been lower than the remaining three quarters of the fiscal year due to customer buying patterns and the observance of various holidays.

EBIT for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was $60,506, up 14.8% from $52,701 in the same period of fiscal 2011. The current quarter EBIT was positively impacted by increased sales volumes, partially offset by increased research and development costs of $10,395, or 38.4%, compared to the same quarter for fiscal 2011, reflecting increased investment in awarded customer programs. In addition, variable compensation expense for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was $7,659 lower than the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Table of Contents

Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 were $38,751, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to $32,090, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2011. The effective tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was 28.3% compared to 31.0% for the second quarter of the prior year.

Year to Date Highlights

Net sales for the first half of fiscal 2012 were $876,689, an increase of 11.8% from $783,941 for the first half of the prior fiscal year. The sales increase was across both of our segments and reflected continued market share gains and consistent growth in most of the markets we serve.

EBIT for the first half of fiscal 2012 was $106,864, up 18.0% from $90,554 in the same period of fiscal 2011. Current year EBIT was positively affected by increased sales volumes and favorable price and sales mix, partially offset by increased investment in research and development. In addition, variable compensation expense for the first half of fiscal 2012 was $4,985 lower than the first half of fiscal 2011.

Net earnings for the first half of fiscal 2012 were $67,168, or $0.95 per diluted share, compared to $54,489, or $0.78 per diluted share, for the first half of fiscal 2011. The effective tax rate in the first half of fiscal 2012 was 28.7% compared to 30.1% for the first half of the prior year.

Liquidity Highlights

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first half of fiscal 2012 was $12,226 compared to $20,176 for the same period of fiscal 2011, primarily reflecting increased payments of variable compensation in the current year, partially offset by less of an increase in accounts receivable and inventory.

Negative free cash flow for the first half of fiscal 2012 was $18,297 compared to positive free cash flow of $52 for the same period of fiscal 2011, due mainly to increased payments of variable compensation in the current year as compared to the prior year and our continuing investment in capital expenditures. EBITDA increased $15,135 to $143,098 for the first half of fiscal 2012 from $127,963 for the same period of fiscal 2011, primarily due to increased net earnings.

On January 4, 2012, we amended and restated our revolving credit facility, which had an expiration date of October 2012, by entering into a Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement”) with a syndicate of lenders led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. The Amended and Restated Revolver Agreement extended the prior revolving credit facility’s maturity to January 2017. The borrowing capacity increased from $225,000 to $400,000 and the option, subject to the lenders’ participation, to expand the commitment increased from $125,000 to $200,000, for a total borrowing capacity of up to $600,000.

At March 31, 2012, we held $56,329 in cash and cash equivalents, and had total outstanding debt of $443,228 with additional borrowing availability of $365,728 under our revolving credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit, and $15,351 under various foreign credit facilities.

The increase in net sales for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012 was primarily attributable to sales volume increases across both of our segments. Net sales increases in our Aerospace segment were primarily attributable to commercial and military aftermarket and commercial original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) sales. Control systems for wind turbines and industrial gas turbines were leading contributors to increased sales in our Energy segment.

 

33


Table of Contents

Price changes: Increases in selling prices were driven primarily by price increases related to both OEM and aftermarket sales within our Aerospace segment. Selling prices in the Energy segment were relatively unchanged from the prior year, consistent with prevailing market conditions.

Foreign currency exchange rates: During the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, our net sales were negatively impacted by $2,860 and $2,515, respectively, due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates compared to the same periods of fiscal 2011.

Our worldwide sales activities are primarily denominated in U.S. Dollars (“USD”), European Monetary Units (the “Euro”), Great Britain Pounds (“GBP”), Japanese Yen (“JPY”), Chinese Yuan (“CNY”), and Swiss Francs (“CHF”). As the USD, Euro, GBP, JPY, CNY, and CHF fluctuate against each other and other currencies, we are exposed to gains or losses on sales transactions. If the CNY, which the Chinese government has not historically allowed to fluctuate significantly against USD, is allowed to fluctuate against USD in the future, we would be exposed to gains or losses on sales transactions denominated in CNY. For additional information on foreign currency exchange rate risk please refer to the risks summarized under the caption “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our most recent Form 10-K.

Costs and Expenses

Cost of goods sold increased by $29,972 to $322,492 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 from $292,520 for the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Cost of goods sold increased to $606,902 for the first half of fiscal 2012 from $553,697 for the first half of 2011. Gross margins (as measured by net sales less cost of goods sold, divided by net sales) increased to 31.2% and 30.8% for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, compared to 30.2% and 29.4%, respectively, for the same periods of the prior year. The increase in gross margins is due primarily to favorable prices and sales mix realized by our Aerospace segment.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by $2,343, or 6.1%, to $40,788 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 as compared to $38,445 for the same period of fiscal 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased as a percentage of net sales to 8.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 as compared to 9.2% for the same period of fiscal 2011. Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by $8,247, or 11.6%, to $79,358 for the first half of fiscal 2012 as compared to $71,111 for the same period of fiscal 2011. Selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales remained flat at 9.1% for both the first half of fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in both comparable periods is due to increases in employee related costs and other costs to support our sales growth.

Research and development costs increased by $10,395, or 38.4%, to $37,445 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 as compared to $27,050, for the same period of fiscal 2011. Research and development costs increased by $17,451, or 34.4%, to $68,239 for the first half of fiscal 2012 as compared to $50,788 for the same period of fiscal 2011. Research and development costs increased as a percentage of sales to 8.0% and 7.8% for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, as compared to 6.5% for both the second quarter and the first half of fiscal 2011. The increase in research and development costs is primarily due to increased investment related to our pursuit of new and awarded customer programs and market share gains in most of our markets, particularly those within our Aerospace segment. Our research and development activities extend across almost all of our customer base. We anticipate that our research and development costs as a percent of net sales in each of the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2012 will be slightly lower than the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Amortization of intangible assets decreased slightly to $8,294 and $16,552 for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, compared to $8,542 and $17,085 for the same periods in fiscal 2011. As a percentage of net sales, amortization of intangible assets decreased to 1.8% and 1.9% for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, as compared to 2.0% and 2.2% for the same periods of the prior year.

Interest expense increased slightly to $6,552 and $12,860 for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, compared to $6,299 and $12,800 for the same periods in fiscal 2011. As a percentage of net sales, interest expense decreased to 1.4% and 1.5% for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, from 1.5% and 1.6% for the same periods of the prior year.

Income taxes were provided at an effective rate on earnings before income taxes of 28.3% and 28.7% for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, respectively, compared to 31.0% and 30.1% for the same periods of fiscal 2011. The reductions in the effective tax rates for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012 each contributed $0.02 to earnings per diluted share when compared to the same periods of the prior fiscal year. The change in the effective tax rate (as a percentage of earnings before income taxes) was attributable to the following:
