The decrease in net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was primarily due to a decrease of $30.0 million in the various Standard Missile contracts primarily from timing of deliveries on the Standard Missile-3 Block IB contract and Standard Missile MK72 booster contract partially offset by (i) an increase of $10.6 million in space advanced programs primarily driven by increased work on the Commercial Crew Development program and the RS-25 program which is currently engaged in a significant development and integration effort in support of the Space Launch System program and (ii) an increase of $8.0 million on the HAWK contract that started generating sales in the second half of fiscal 2015.

The increase in net sales in the first half of fiscal 2016 compared to the first half of fiscal 2015 was primarily due to the following: (i) an increase of $27.1 million in space programs primarily driven by increased work on the Commercial Crew Development program and the RL10 program as a result of deliveries on this multi-year contract; (ii) an increase of $23.4 million on the PAC-3 contract associated with timing of deliveries; and (iii) an increase of $14.3 million on the HAWK contract that started generating sales in the second half of fiscal 2015. These factors were partially offset by a decrease of $40.5 million in the various Standard Missile contracts primarily from timing of deliveries on the Standard Missile-3 Block IB contract and Standard Missile MK72 booster contract.

The decrease in the segment margin before environmental remediation provision adjustments, retirement benefit plan expense, net, Rocketdyne purchase accounting adjustments, and unusual items in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was primarily due to cost growth and manufacturing inefficiencies on electric propulsion contracts.

The decrease in the segment margin in the first half of fiscal 2016 compared to the first half of fiscal 2015 before environmental remediation provision adjustments, retirement benefit plan expense, net, Rocketdyne purchase accounting adjustments, and unusual items was primarily due to cost growth and manufacturing inefficiencies in the current period on electric propulsion contracts partially offset by contract losses of $3.2 million related to the Antares AJ26 program in the first half of fiscal 2015 that was terminated for convenience in October 2015.

AR1 Research and Development

Company-sponsored research and development ("R&D") expenses (reported as a component of cost of sales) are generally reimbursed via allocation of such expenses among all contracts and programs in progress under U.S. government contractual arrangements. The Company's newest large liquid booster engine development project, the AR1, recorded $35.4 million of such reimbursable costs from inception through June 30, 2016. During the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company began separately reporting the portion of the engine development expenses associated with the AR1 project which were currently not reimbursed via allocation across all contracts and programs in progress under U.S. governmental contractual arrangements.

In February 2016, the U.S. Air Force selected Aerojet Rocketdyne and United Launch Alliance ("ULA") to share in a public-private partnership to develop jointly the AR1 engine. The total agreement is valued at $804 million with the U.S. Air Force investing two-thirds of the funding required to complete development of the AR1 engine by 2019. The work is expected to be completed no later than December 31, 2019. The U.S. Air Force has obligated $115.3 million with Aerojet Rocketdyne and ULA contributing $57.7 million. The total potential U.S. government investment, including all options, is $536 million. The total potential investment by Aerojet Rocketdyne and its partners, including all options, is $268 million. Under the terms of the AR1 agreement, the U.S. Air Force contributions are recognized proportionately as an offset to R&D expenses. In the event the Company records a receivable for a milestone prior to expending the prospective proportional share to be contributed by the Company, the amount is recorded as an accrued liability until earned. Through June 30, 2016, the Company has recorded receivables in the aggregate from the U.S. Air Force and ULA of $37.8 million (of which $37.7 million has been collected) related to AR1 engine development which was recorded as a reduction of the AR1 R&D costs.

From inception through June 30, 2016, AR1 costs not charged to U.S. governmental contractual arrangements and therefore not reimbursed amounted to $32.1 million, bringing the inception to date AR1 R&D costs incurred through June 30, 2016 to $105.3 million. The AR1 inception to date project costs are summarized as follows (in millions):

    
AR1 R&D costs incurred$105.3 
Less amounts funded by the U.S. Air Force(33.9)
Less amounts funded by ULA(3.9)
AR1 R&D costs net of reimbursements67.5 
AR1 R&D costs expensed and not applied to contracts(32.1)
Net AR1 R&D costs applied to contracts$35.4 
 

Backlog

A summary of the Company's backlog is as follows:

 
 June 30, 2016 November 30,
2015
 (In billions)
Funded backlog$2.3  $2.4 
Unfunded backlog1.5  1.7 
Total contract backlog$3.8  $4.1 
 

Total backlog includes both funded backlog (unfilled orders for which funding is authorized, appropriated and contractually obligated by the customer) and unfunded backlog (firm orders for which funding has not been appropriated). Indefinite delivery and quantity contracts and unexercised options are not reported in total backlog. Backlog is subject to funding delays or program restructurings/cancellations which are beyond the Company's control. Of the Company's June 30, 2016 total contract backlog, approximately 47%, or $1.8 billion, is expected to be filled within one year.

(1) Retirement benefit expense is net of cash funding to the Company's tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan which are recoverable costs under the Company's U.S. government contracts. The Company funded $7.5 million and $15.0 million to its tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

The Company evaluates its operating segments based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is segment performance. Segment performance represents net sales from continuing operations less applicable costs, expenses and unusual items relating to the segment operations. Segment performance excludes corporate income and expenses, unusual items not related to the segment operations, interest expense, interest income, and income taxes. The Company believes that segment performance provides information useful to investors in understanding its underlying operational performance. Specifically, the Company believes the exclusion of the items listed above permits an evaluation and a comparison of results for ongoing business operations. It is on this basis that management internally assesses the financial performance of its segments.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to segment performance (discussed above), the Company provides the Non-GAAP financial measure of its operational performance called Adjusted EBITDAP. The Company uses this metric to further its understanding of the historical and prospective consolidated core operating performance of its segments, net of expenses resulting from the Company's corporate activities in the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of its operations. Further, the Company believes that to effectively compare the core operating performance metrics from period to period on a historical and prospective basis, the metric should exclude items relating to retirement benefits, significant non-cash expenses, the impacts of financing decisions on earnings, and items incurred outside the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of its operations. Accordingly, the Company defines Adjusted EBITDAP as GAAP income from continuing operations before income taxes adjusted to exclude interest expense, interest income, depreciation and amortization, retirement benefit expense net of cash funding to the Company's tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan that are recoverable under the Company's U.S. government contracts, and unusual items which the Company does not believe are reflective of such ordinary, ongoing and customary activities. Adjusted EBITDAP does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to, net income, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

In addition to segment performance and Adjusted EBITDAP, the Company provides the Non-GAAP financial measures of free cash flow and net debt. The Company uses these financial measures, both in presenting its results to stakeholders and the investment community, and in its internal evaluation and management of the business. Management believes that these financial measures are useful because it presents the Company's business using the same tools that management uses to gauge progress in achieving its goals.

(1) Free Cash Flow, a Non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow excludes any mandatory debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation, as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to cash flows from operations presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes Free Cash Flow is useful as it provides supplemental information to assist investors in viewing the business using the same tools that management uses to gauge progress in achieving the Company's goals.

Because the Company's method for calculating the Non-GAAP measures may differ from other companies' methods, the Non-GAAP measures presented above may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. These measures are not recognized in accordance with GAAP, and the Company does not intend for this information to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures.
