BAE Systems plc - IFRS 15 transition

 

Introduction

BAE Systems is today hosting a presentation for institutional investors and analysts to explain the impact of its transition to International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 15, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The new Standard, which is effective from 1 January 2018, requires the identification of performance obligations in contracts with customers and allocation of the total contractual value to each of the performance obligations identified. Revenue is recognised as each performance obligation is satisfied either at a point in time or over time. The Standard will replace International Accounting Standard (IAS) 11, Construction Contracts, IAS 18, Revenue, and all other existing revenue accounting requirements within IFRS.

 

Key points

·    Revenue on the majority of contracts, currently being recognised based on the completion of milestones or deliveries, will cumulatively be recognised earlier

 

·    Profit on contracts will continue to be recognised progressively as risks have been mitigated or retired

 

·    Profit will be recognised earlier on shorter-term contracts in the Group's US businesses

 

·    On contracts for both development and production in the Group's MBDA joint venture, there will be lower profit recognised during the development phase

 

·    Some licence revenue in Applied Intelligence originally recognised upfront under IAS 18 will be deferred and recognised over the licence term under IFRS 15

 

·    The estimated impact on the Group's underlying earnings per share1 for the year ending 31 December 2017 if IFRS 15 had been adopted would be a reduction of approximately 1p

 

·    The impact of IFRS 15 on underlying earnings per share1 for the year ending 31 December 2018 and beyond is not expected to be material

 

·    Most balance sheet contract work-in-progress replaced with a contract receivable representing accrued revenue, based on costs incurred, and including attributable profit

 

·    No impact on the way in which BAE Systems manages its contracts

 

·    No impact on lifetime revenue and profitability of contracts or the timing of cash receipts, which are determined by the terms and conditions of contracts with the customers

 

 

 

1.     Basic earnings per share excluding amortisation and impairment of intangible assets, non-cash finance movements on pensions and financial derivatives, and non-recurring items.
