For the full year 2011, sales were $6.58 billion, down 2.2 percent from 2010. The impact of a $290 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge resulted in a reported net loss of $94 million for 2011 and a $1.93 loss per share on a GAAP basis. Excluding the charge, total operating margin was 6.1 percent, up from 3.7 percent last year, and diluted earnings per share was $3.97 for 2011, up from $2.77 in 2010.

Cash provided by operations in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $474 million, up $266 million, or 128 percent, over the fourth quarter of 2010. Full year 2011 cash provided by operations was $528 million, up $169 million, or 47 percent, over 2010. New business awards for 2011 were $5.6 billion, of which $0.8 billion was awarded in the fourth quarter, bringing total backlog to $16.3 billion as of Dec. 31, 2011.

“Our overall performance was very strong for the quarter, and we remain on track to deliver our long-term financial performance goals,” said Mike Petters, HII’s president and chief executive officer. “In addition, the delivery of the amphibious ship LPD-22 San Diego in December marked a major milestone toward completing the turnaround at our Ingalls Shipbuilding segment. Despite the uncertainty around the defense budget, our focus remains on continuing to deliver high-quality ships that are valued by our customers, the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.”
