The company reported a Q4 net income margin of 11.1% and GAAP earnings per share of $2.46. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings margin was 19.2%, and non-GAAP EPS was $3.3, beating consensus estimates of $2.86. The increase in non-GAAP EPS was driven by integration benefits, e2 performance, low share count, and expenses management but this was offset partially offset by divesture and supply chain-related impacts.
For a full year, the company had a GAAP net income margin of 10.35 and GAAP EPS of $9.09, while GAAP adjusted earnings before interest and taxes margin was 19.1% while non-GAAP EPS was $12.95 representing a 125 increase. The increase was driven by integration benefits, e3 performance, and lower share count, which offset high R&D investments, supply chain, and divesture related impacts.
Vice-Chair and Chief Executive Officer Christopher E. Kubasik commented:
The L3Harris team delivered solid EPS growth, consistent with expectations, despite supply chain headwinds and budget uncertainty. In 2022, we look forward to taking the next step as the industry’s trusted disruptor to deliver innovative and affordable solutions, and with a focus on creating value over the long term.
