Cash Flows and Capital Deployment Activities

Cash from operations in the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 was $3.1 billion. Capital expenditures were $405 million, resulting in free cash flow of $2.7 billion. The increase in operating and free cash flows from the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to timing of production and billing cycles (primarily the F-35 program) impacting contract assets, the collection of receivables (primarily F-35) and deferral of cash payments for accounts payable (primarily Aeronautics).

The company's capital deployment activities in the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 included the following:

  • paying cash dividends of $739 million; and
  • repurchasing 3.4 million shares for $1.4 billion, of which $112 million was paid in the fourth quarter of 2022 upon settlement of certain repurchased shares.

Multi-Year $14 Billion Share Repurchase Program and Dividend Rate Increase

On October 17, 2022, the company's board authorized the purchase of up to an additional $14.0 billion of Lockheed Martin common stock under its share repurchase program. This multi-year share repurchase program follows the substantial completion of purchases of common stock under the prior repurchase authorization. The company anticipates executing a $4.0 billion accelerated share repurchase program in the fourth quarter of 2022 bringing our total share repurchases for the year to approximately $8.0 billion. The remainder of the repurchase program authorization is expected to be utilized over a three-year period. The company expects to fund the repurchases through a combination of cash on hand and the issuance of debt. The stock repurchase program does not have an expiration date and may be amended or terminated by the board of directors at any time. The amount of shares ultimately purchased and the timing of purchases are at the discretion of management and subject to compliance with applicable law and regulation.

On Sept. 30, 2022, the company increased its quarterly dividend by $0.20 per share, to $3.00 per share, beginning with the dividend payment in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Segment Results

The company operates in four business segments organized based on the nature of products and services offered: Aeronautics, Missiles and Fire Control (MFC), Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) and Space. The following table presents summary operating results of the company's business segments and reconciles these amounts to the company's consolidated financial results.

Net sales and operating profit of our business segments exclude intersegment sales, cost of sales, and profit as these activities are eliminated in consolidation and not included in management's evaluation of performance of each segment. Business segment operating profit includes our share of earnings or losses from equity method investees as the operating activities of the equity method investees are closely aligned with the operations of our business segments.

Business segment operating profit excludes the FAS/CAS pension operating adjustment, a portion of corporate costs not considered allowable or allocable to contracts with the U.S. Government under the applicable U.S. Government cost accounting standards (CAS) or federal acquisition regulations (FAR), and other items not considered part of management's evaluation of segment operating performance such as a portion of management and administration costs, legal fees and settlements, environmental costs, stock-based compensation expense, retiree benefits, significant severance actions, significant asset impairments, gains or losses from divestitures, and other miscellaneous corporate activities. Excluded items are included in the reconciling item "Unallocated items" between operating profit from our business segments and our consolidated operating profit.

Changes in net sales and operating profit generally are expressed in terms of volume. Changes in volume refer to increases or decreases in sales or operating profit resulting from varying production activity levels, deliveries or service levels on individual contracts. Volume changes in segment operating profit are typically based on the current profit booking rate for a particular contract. In addition, comparability of the company's segment sales, operating profit and operating margin may be impacted favorably or unfavorably by changes in profit booking rates on the company's contracts. Increases in profit booking rates, typically referred to as favorable profit adjustments, usually relate to revisions in the estimated total costs to fulfill the performance obligations that reflect improved conditions on a particular contract. Conversely, conditions on a particular contract may deteriorate, resulting in an increase in the estimated total costs to fulfill the performance obligations and a reduction in the profit booking rate and are typically referred to as unfavorable profit adjustments. Increases or decreases in profit booking rates are recognized in the current period and reflect the inception-to-date effect of such changes. For more information on factors impacting comparability of our segment sales, operating profit and operating margins, see "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021 and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.

The company's consolidated net favorable profit booking rate adjustments represented approximately 25% of total segment operating profit in the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022, as compared to 31% in the quarter ended Sept. 26, 2021.

Aeronautics' net sales during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 increased $521 million, or 8%, compared to the same period in 2021. Net sales increased by approximately $425 million for the F-35 program due to the recognition of $325 million of sales deferred from the second quarter of 2022 to the third quarter of 2022 until additional contractual authorization and funding was received on the Lot 15 contract and higher volume and net favorable profit adjustments on production contracts; and about $100 million on classified contracts primarily due to higher volume that was partially offset by lower net favorable profit adjustments.

Aeronautics' operating profit during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 increased $45 million, or 6%, compared to the same period in 2021. Operating profit increased approximately $70 million for the F-35 program due to the recognition of sales and associated operating profit on the Lot 15 contract as described above and higher net favorable profit adjustments on production contracts; and about $15 million for the F-22 program due to higher net favorable profit adjustments. These increases were partially offset by lower operating profit of approximately $40 million on classified contracts due to the combination of lower net favorable profit adjustments and $25 million of unfavorable profit adjustments recorded in the third quarter of 2022. Net favorable profit booking rate adjustments were $20 million lower in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

MFC's net sales during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 increased $50 million, or 2%, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $95 million for integrated air and missile defense programs due to higher volume (Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3)).This increase was partially offset by a decrease of about $55 million for sensors and global sustainment programs as a result of closeout activities related to the Warrior program in 2021.

MFC's operating profit during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 decreased $31 million, or 8%, compared to the same period in 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower operating profit for integrated air and missile defense programs due to lower net favorable profit adjustments of approximately $50 million for the PAC-3 program and an unfavorable profit adjustment of about $40 million on the Advanced Radar Threat System Variant 2 (ARTS-V2) program, partially offset by the impact of higher volume on PAC-3; and about $10 million for sensors and global sustainment programs primarily due to favorable profit adjustments on the Warrior program in the third quarter of 2021 as a result of the program being terminated in March 2021. These net decreases were partially offset by unfavorable profit adjustments of approximately $25 million on an energy program in the third quarter of 2021 that did not recur in 2022. Net favorable profit booking rate adjustments were $75 million lower in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

RMS' net sales during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 decreased $199 million, or 5%, compared to the same period in 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales of approximately $160 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to lower production volume and net favorable profit adjustments (Black Hawk); and about $35 million for various C6ISR (command, control, communications, computers, cyber, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) programs due to lower volume.

RMS' operating profit during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 decreased $45 million, or 10%, compared to the same period in 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to approximately $65 million for Sikorsky helicopter programs due to lower net favorable profit adjustments and volume (Black Hawk). This decrease was partially offset by an increase of about $10 million for IWSS programs due primarily to $45 million of unfavorable profit adjustments on a ground-based radar program in the third quarter of 2021 that did not recur in the third quarter of 2022, partially offset by lower net favorable profit adjustments on certain programs (TPQ-53 and Vertical Launching System (VLS)). Net favorable profit booking rate adjustments were $15 million lower in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

Space's net sales during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 increased $183 million, or 7%, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to higher net sales of approximately $155 million for strategic and missile defense programs due to higher development volume (Next Generation Interceptor (NGI)).

Space's operating profit during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 increased $37 million, or 14%, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to approximately $50 million of higher equity earnings from the company's investment in United Launch Alliance (ULA) due to higher launch volume and launch mix. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of about $15 million for commercial civil space programs due to lower net favorable profit adjustments and lower volume (primarily the Orion and Human Lander System (HLS) programs). Operating profit for national security space programs was comparable as an unfavorable profit adjustment of $45 million on a commercial ground solutions program in the third quarter of 2021 that did not recur was offset by lower net favorable profit adjustments (Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) and classified programs). Net favorable profit booking rate adjustments were $15 million lower in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

Total equity earnings (primarily ULA) represented approximately $50 million, or 17%, of Space's operating profit during the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022. Total equity earnings were not significant during the quarter ended Sept. 26, 2021.

Income Taxes

The company's effective income tax rates were 15.3% and 9.6% for the quarters ended Sept. 25, 2022 and Sept. 26, 2021. The rate for the quarter ended Sept. 26, 2021 was lower than the rate for the quarter ended Sept. 25, 2022 primarily due to lower earnings before income taxes resulting from a noncash, non-operating pension settlement charge of $1.7 billion, which reduced tax expense by approximately $355 million. The rates for both periods benefited from the research and development tax credit, tax deductions for foreign derived intangible income and dividends paid to the company's defined contribution plans with an employee stock ownership plan feature.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains the following non-generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP) financial measures (as defined by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulation G). While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in evaluating the financial performance of the company, this information should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definitions for non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies or analysts.

Business segment operating profit

Business segment operating profit represents operating profit from the company's business segments before unallocated income and expense. This measure is used by the company's senior management in evaluating the performance of its business segments and is a performance goal in the company's annual incentive plan. Business segment operating margin is calculated by dividing business segment operating profit by sales. The table below reconciles the non-GAAP measure business segment operating profit with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, consolidated operating profit.

expected non-service FAS pension (expense) income. Refer to the supplemental table "Selected Financial Data" included in this news release
for a detail of the FAS/CAS operating adjustment.





Free cash flow

Free cash flow is cash from operations less capital expenditures. The company's capital expenditures are comprised of equipment and facilities infrastructure and information technology (inclusive of costs for the development or purchase of internal-use software that are capitalized). The company uses free cash flow to evaluate its business performance and overall liquidity and it is a performance goal in the company's annual and long-term incentive plans. The company believes free cash flow is a useful measure for investors because it represents the amount of cash generated from operations after reinvesting in the business and that may be available to return to stockholders and creditors (through dividends, stock repurchases and debt repayments) or available to fund acquisitions. The entire free cash flow amount is not necessarily available for discretionary expenditures, however, because it does not account for certain mandatory expenditures, such as the repayment of maturing debt and pension contributions.

Adjusted earnings before income taxes; adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted EPS

Earnings before income taxes, net earnings and diluted earnings per share (EPS) were impacted by certain non-operational charges for all periods. Management believes the presentation of these measures adjusted for the impacts of these non-operational items is useful to investors in understanding the company's underlying business performance and comparing performance from period to period. The tax effects related to each adjustment that impacted earnings before income taxes are based on a blended tax rate that combines the federal statutory rate of 21% plus an estimated state tax rate.

Net FAS/CAS pension adjustment – adjusted; Total FAS pension income - adjusted

Total FAS/CAS pension adjustment and Total FAS pension income have been adjusted for the noncash, non-operating pension settlement charges recorded in the second quarter 2022 and third quarter 2021. Management believes that the exclusion of the pension settlement charge is useful to understanding the company's underlying business performance and comparing performance from period to period.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements that, to the extent they are not recitations of historical fact, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, and are based on Lockheed Martin's current expectations and assumptions. The words "believe," "estimate," "anticipate," "project," "intend," "expect," "plan," "outlook," "scheduled," "forecast" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially due to factors such as:

  • the impact of COVID-19 or future epidemics on the company's business and financial results, including supply chain disruptions and delays, labor challenges associated with employee absences, quarantine restrictions, travel restrictions, site access, program delays, and changes in customer payment policies;
  • budget uncertainty, the risk of future budget cuts, the impact of continuing resolution funding mechanisms and the debt ceiling and the potential for government shutdowns and changing funding and acquisition priorities;
  • the company's reliance on contracts with the U.S. Government, which are dependent on U.S. Government funding and can be terminated for convenience, and the company's ability to negotiate favorable contract terms;
  • risks related to the development, production, sustainment, performance, schedule, cost and requirements of complex and technologically advanced programs, including the F-35 program;
  • the continued delay of the definitization of the Lots 15-17 F-35 production contract;
  • planned production rates and orders for significant programs, compliance with stringent performance and reliability standards, and materials availability;
  • performance and financial viability of key suppliers, teammates, joint ventures and partners, subcontractors and customers;
  • economic, industry, business and political conditions including their effects on governmental policy;
  • the impact of inflation and other cost pressures;
  • government actions that disrupt the company's supply chain or prevent the sale or delivery of its products (such as delays in approvals for exports requiring Congressional notification);
  • trade policies or sanctions (including potential Chinese sanctions on the company or its suppliers, teammates or partners, U.S. Government sanctions on Republic of Turkiye and its removal from the F-35 program, and potential indirect effects of sanctions on Russia to the company's supply chain);
  • the company's success expanding into and doing business in adjacent markets and internationally and the differing risks posed by international sales;
  • changes in foreign national priorities and foreign government budgets and planned orders, including the impact of a strengthening U.S. dollar;
  • the competitive environment for the company's products and services, including competition from startups and non-traditional defense contractors;
  • the timing of contract awards or delays in contract definitization as well as the timing and customer acceptance of product deliveries and performance milestones;
  • the company's ability to develop and commercialize new technologies and products, including emerging digital and network technologies and capabilities;
  • the company's ability to attract and retain a highly skilled workforce, the impact of work stoppages or other labor disruptions;
  • cyber or other security threats or other disruptions faced by the company or its suppliers;
  • the company's ability to implement and continue, and the timing and impact of, capitalization changes such as share repurchases, dividend payments and financing transactions;
  • the company's ability to recover costs under U.S. Government contracts and the mix of fixed-price and cost-reimbursable contracts;
  • customer procurement policies that shift risk to contractors, including competitively bid programs with fixed-price development work or follow-on production options or other financial risks; and the impact of investments, cost overruns or other cost pressures and performance issues on fixed price contracts;
  • the accuracy of the company's estimates and projections;
  • the impact of pension risk transfers, including potential noncash settlement charges, timing and estimates regarding pension funding and movements in interest rates and other changes that may affect pension plan assumptions, stockholders' equity, the level of the FAS/CAS adjustment, and actual returns on pension plan assets;
  • realizing the anticipated benefits of acquisitions or divestitures, investments, joint ventures, teaming arrangements or internal reorganizations, and market volatility affecting the fair value of investments in the company's Lockheed Martin Ventures Fund that are marked to market;
  • the company's efforts to increase the efficiency of its operations and improve the affordability of its products and services, including through digital transformation and cost reduction initiatives;
  • the risk of an impairment of the company's assets, including the potential impairment of goodwill recorded at the Sikorsky line of business;
  • the availability and adequacy of the company's insurance and indemnities;
  • the company's ability to benefit fully from or adequately protect its intellectual property rights;
  • procurement and other regulations and policies affecting the company's industry, export of its products, cost allowability or recovery, preferred contract type, and performance and progress payments policy;
  • impacts of climate change and compliance with laws, regulations, policies, and customer requirements in response to climate change concerns;
  • changes in accounting, U.S. or foreign tax, export or other laws, regulations, and policies and their interpretation or application; and
  • the outcome of legal proceedings, bid protests, environmental remediation efforts, audits, government investigations or government allegations that the company has failed to comply with law, other contingencies and U.S. Government identification of deficiencies in its business systems.

These are only some of the factors that may affect the forward-looking statements contained in this news release. For a discussion identifying additional important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, see the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission including, but not limited to, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Risk Factors" in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021 and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. The company's filings may be accessed through the Investor Relations page of its website, www.lockheedmartin.com/investor, or through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov.

The company's actual financial results likely will be different from those projected due to the inherent nature of projections. Given these uncertainties, forward-looking statements should not be relied on in making investment decisions. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as of the date of its filing. Except where required by applicable law, the company expressly disclaims a duty to provide updates to forward-looking statements after the date of this news release to reflect subsequent events, changed circumstances, changes in expectations, or the estimates and assumptions associated with them. The forward-looking statements in this news release are intended to be subject to the safe harbor protection provided by the federal securities laws.

Calendar quarters are typically comprised of 13 weeks. However, the company closes its books and records on the last Sunday of each month,
except for the month of Dec., as its fiscal year ends on Dec. 31. As a result, the number of weeks in a reporting quarter may vary slightly during
the year and for comparable prior year periods.
