COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Triumph Group designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs, overhauls and distributes a portfolio of aerostructures, aircraft components, accessories, subassemblies and systems. Co. has three operating segments: Triumph Aerostructures Group, which designs, manufactures, assembles and combines metallic and composite aerostructures and structural components; Triumph Aerospace Systems Group, which designs, engineers and manufactures a range of proprietary and build-to-print components, assemblies and systems; and Triumph Aftermarket Services Group, which serves aircraft fleets, through the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft components and accessories manufactured by third parties.

 

ECONOMIC MOAT

We believe TGI has an economic moat due to strong relationships with end customers.  End customers put a high emphasis on trust and reliability on manufacturers like TGI.  These relationship become sticky and switching costs are high.

 

OUTLOOK

We look for modest sales advances at Triumph Group in fiscal 2015 (starts April 1st) and 2016. Triumph provides many high-end components for the current cycle of fuel-efficient jets being manufactured by Boeing and France-based Airbus. Triumph remained active on the acquisition front. Estimated free cash flow of over $300 million in fiscal 2015 should support the ongoing acquisition program and a modest level of share repurchases. TGI is poised for solid performance in the next 6 to 12 months.
