Governments will need to spend a lot of taxpayer money to keep companies like Bombardier, Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) in business - a fact that can work for, and against, investors.
MONTREAL — Bombardier Inc. has signed a US$1.2-billion deal to sell its aerostructures business as the plane-and-train maker continues its shift toward business jets and railcars.Spirit AeroSystems Holding Inc. has signed a definitive agreement with the Montreal-based company to buy its factories in Belfast, U.K., and Casablanca, Morocco, as well as its maintenance plant in Dallas.Under the agreement, Spirit will pay US$500 million in cash and assume liabilities of more than US$700 million."We achieved another key strategic milestone towards building a lean, efficient and strong business aircraft franchise," Bombardier chief executive Alain Bellemare said Thursday during a conference call with analysts.Spirit is expected to continue to manufacture the wings of the Airbus A220 — Bombardier sold a majority stake in the plane program, formerly branded the C Series, to Airbus last year — and other structural components and spare parts for the Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft families in Bombardier's aviation division.The sale announcement came as the company announced earnings that fell below expectations."While results were mixed, we were encouraged by the outlook whereby the company reiterated full-year 2019 free cash flow guide," said analyst Walter Spracklin of RBC Dominion Securities.He said he views the sale "positively...as it further focuses Bombardier on the two core areas of business jets and transportation, while adding further liquidity," he said in a note to investors.Despite several project delays and lower-than-expected margins in its train division, Bombardier is "indicating that it has turned the corner on the large problematic legacy contracts," Spracklin said.Bellemare said the company is on track to reach its 2019 forecast of 15 to 20 Global 7500 business jet deliveries, despite sending off only two last quarter. Next year Bombardier aims to deliver between 35 and 40 of the ultra-long-range 7500s, which can fly from Halifax to Hong Kong."We are pleased with the company's progress on the Global 7500, which should be a key driver of margin expansion and free-cash-flow generation," said Desjardins Securities analyst Benoit Poirier.The company's stock rose more than four per cent or seven cents to closed at $1.66 in Thursday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.News of the sale came as Bombardier, which keeps its books in U.S. dollars, reported a loss of US$91 million or six cents per diluted share on $3.72 billion in revenue in its third quarter. That compared with a profit of $149 million or four cents per share on $3.64 billion in revenue a year ago.Revenue fell two per cent year over year to $3.72 billion in the quarter ended Sept. 30.On an adjusted basis, Bombardier says it lost four cents per share in its most recent quarter compared with an adjusted profit of four cents per share in the same quarter last year.Analysts on average had expected a loss of three cents per share, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 31, 2019.Companies in this story: (TSX:BBD.B)The Canadian Press
(Bloomberg) -- Bombardier Inc. agreed to sell a wing factory in Northern Ireland and two other facilities to Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc. for $500 million and the assumption of certain liabilities.The Belfast operation makes wings for Airbus SE’s A220 jetliner, an aircraft that cash-strapped Bombardier developed before handing control last year to the European planemaker. The deal also covers a plant in Morocco and a maintenance, overhaul and repair shop in Dallas, Bombardier and Spirit said Thursday.The sale caps Bombardier’s exit from the airliner business as Chief Executive Officer Alain Bellemare refocuses the manufacturer on building private jets and trains. For Spirit, buying the Belfast plant will expand its role as an Airbus supplier and lessen its dependence on Boeing Co. and the 737 Max, which has been grounded for more than seven months after two deadly crashes.“This acquisition is in line with our growth strategy of increasing Airbus content, developing low-cost country footprint, and growing our aftermarket business,” said Spirit CEO Tom Gentile. “The Bombardier operations bring world-class engineering expertise to Spirit and add to a strong track record of innovation, especially in advanced composites.”The acquired operations have more than 4,000 employees and expected 2019 revenue of about $1 billion, Spirit said. Their backlog of work includes supply contracts for the A220 and Airbus’s A320neo, as well as for business and regional jets made by Montreal-based Bombardier.The Canadian company’s shares surged 10% to C$1.75 at 9:41 a.m. in Toronto after advancing as much as 12% for the biggest intraday gain in almost five months. Bombardier jumped even after third-quarter financial results fell short of analysts’ expectations. Spirit, which also missed earnings estimates, climbed 3.7% to $81.99. As part of the agreement, Spirit said it would assume about $300 million in net pension liabilities, and approximately $290 million of government grant repayment obligations, bringing the total value of the transaction to $1.09 billion. That’s 10 times the estimated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of the acquired businesses, Spirit said.The Wichita, Kansas-based company will also make a cash contribution of about $130 million toward pension liabilities. The deal, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to close in the first half of next year.To contact the reporter on this story: Anurag Kotoky in New Delhi at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Case at email@example.com, Susan WarrenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Montreal-based Bombardier is in the middle of a restructuring, shedding underperforming commercial plane programs to focus on more profitable business jet and rail units.
