Embraer (ERJ) Q3 Earnings Lag Estimates, Revenues Rise Y/Y

Shares of Embraer S.A. ERJ declined 1.8% to $16.49 on Nov 5, following the third-quarter 2021 results.

Embraer reported third-quarter 2021 adjusted loss of 18 cents per American Depository share (ADS), which was wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 14 cents. However, the figure reported was narrower than the year-ago quarter’s loss of 81 cents per share.

Total Revenues

Embraer’s third-quarter revenues were $958.1 million, up 26.3% year over year. The improvement can be attributed to growth witnessed in Commercial Aviation, Executive Aviation, Defense & Security and Services & Support segments.

Order and Delivery

Embraer delivered 30 jets in the reported quarter. The company delivered nine commercial and 21 executive (14 light and seven large) jets compared to 14 commercial and 20 executive (12 light and eight large) jets in the prior quarter.

Backlog at the end of the third quarter was $16.8 billion compared with $15.9 billion in the prior quarter.

Operational Highlight

Embraer’s adjusted EBIT improved massively from a loss of $45.3 million in third-quarter 2020 to $35.7 million in third-quarter 2021.

The company posted a quarterly adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $79.2 million versus a loss of $8.2 million in the year-earlier quarter.

Financial Update

As of Sep 30, 2021, Embraer’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to $2.5 billion compared with $1.9 billion as of Dec 31, 2020.

The company had net debt of $1,803.6 million as of Sep 30, 2021, up from $1,695.7 million as of Dec 31, 2020.

Its adjusted free cash flow in the first nine months of 2021 was $21.3 million against a free cash outflow of $566.5 million in the same period last year. The improvement came primarily on the back of better profitability and working capital efficiencies.


Embraer reaffirmed its guidance for 2021. Its Commercial Aviation deliveries are projected to be 45-50 jets, while the Executive Aviation deliveries are expected to be 90-95 aircrafts.

The company expects to generate revenues in the range of $4.0 billion to $4.5 billion during 2021.

Embraer anticipates adjusted EBIT margin in the range of 3.0% to 4.0%, and adjusted EBITDA margin in the band of 8.5% to 9.5% in 2021.

The company updated its guidance for free cash flow driven by better-than-expected free cash flow performance over the first nine months of 2021. It anticipates free cash flow without M&A or divestitures in the range of $100 million or more, which is an improvement from the prior range of free cash outflow of $150 million to breakeven.
