Financial Performance

Triumph is in poor health amid declining sales and recurring net losses. In 2020, it took a dip of 14% from the previous year. 2020 sales are 25% lower than 2016 sales.

Triumph has not turned a net profit since fiscal 2016. The company's losses have been improving and close to resurfacing. Net loss in 2020 was $28 million compared to $322 million in 2019.

Triumph's cash on grew $392.7 million in 2020, ending the year at $485.5 million. The company's operations generated $96.7 million, investing activities generated $7.4 million and financing generated $293.7 million.

Strategy

To improve its faltering financial performance, Triumph has been divesting non-core assets, pursuing high-margin business, cutting costs, and trying to attract better talent. Improvements have been seen in the Global Hawk wing program and Boeing 747 and 767 programs. Triumph has also, importantly, extricated itself from six big, bad contracts that were inflicting punishing losses on the company. These were the Gulfstream G650 and G280, Bombardier 7500, Embraer E2, Bell 525, and Boeing 787 programs.

Triumph continually makes significant capital expenditures to implement new processes and to increase both efficiency and capacity. Some of these projects require additional training for employees and not all projects may be implemented as anticipated.
