TransDigm Group Incorporated ( TDG Quick Quote TDG - Free Report) is slated to report second-quarter fiscal 2022 results on May 10, before market open.
In the last reported quarter, the company delivered a negative earnings surprise of 3.23%. Moreover, TransDigm surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three out of the trailing four quarters and missed the same once, delivering an earnings surprise of 6.19%, on average.
Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement.
Factors to Consider
A steady recovery has been observed in the commercial aerospace industry over the past few months, thanks to expanding vaccination rates along with increased air traffic, especially in certain domestic markets. This in turn must have boosted the company’s commercial aftermarket revenues in the fiscal second quarter.
However, delivery slowdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted international travel. Boeing's quality control issues with the 787 aircraft might have had some adverse impact on TransDigm Group’s overall revenues. Also supply chain-induced delays in fulfilling orders at certain operating units may have hurt its defense revenues.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal second-quarter revenues is pegged at $1.31 billion, indicating an improvement of 9.6% from second-quarter fiscal 2022 reported revenues.
Such encouraging revenue projections make us optimistic about TransDigm’s fiscal second-quarter earnings. Moreover, the company’s cost-management initiatives are expected to have boosted its quarterly bottom line.
Also, with the integration of the Cobham Aero Connectivity business, following its acquisition by TransDigm, positive synergies from this transaction may have contributed to the company’s earnings in the fiscal second quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings stands at $3.71 per share, implying a solid increase of 43.8% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
