TransDigm Group Incorporated TDG is slated to report third-quarter fiscal 2022 results on Aug 9, before market open.
TransDigm Group has a four-quarter earnings surprise of 6.61%, on average. Its fiscal third-quarter results are likely to be boosted by an improvement in commercial OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and aftermarket revenues, thus adding impetus to the performance of the overall top line.
Power & Control Segment Poised to Boost Revenues
The continued recovery in the commercial aerospace industry must have boosted organic sales of TDG’s commercial OEM and commercial aftermarket businesses. This, in turn, is expected to have contributed to the company’s Power & Control segment revenues in the fiscal third quarter.
Also, solid bookings in the prior quarters are projected to have benefited defense revenues within this segment in the soon-to-be reported quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the Power & Control segment’s third-quarter revenues, pegged at $731 million, suggests an improvement of 16.4% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

Airframe Segment – Another Revenue Contributor
Solid air travel demand in recent times, particularly an increase in the utilization of narrow-body aircraft, must have bolstered top-line growth of the company’s Aiframe segment, in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the Airframe segment’s fiscal third-quarter revenues, pegged at $576 million, suggests an improvement of 4.7% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
With the majority of TransDigm Group’s segments anticipated to report an improvement in sales, it makes one optimistic about strong growth in the top line of the company in the soon-to-be-reported quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal third-quarter sales is pegged at $1.43 billion, indicating an increase of 17% from the prior-year reported figure.
TransDigm Group might reflect a favorable impact from cost management and its continuous focus on the operating strategy, which might have added impetus to its bottom line in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
