BWX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2017
(UNAUDITED)
NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
We have presented the condensed consolidated financial statements of BWX Technologies, Inc. ("BWXT" or the "Company") in U.S. dollars in accordance with the interim reporting requirements of Form 10-Q, Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). Certain financial information and disclosures normally included in our financial statements prepared annually in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. Readers of these financial statements should, therefore, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (our "2016 10-K"). We have included all adjustments, in the opinion of management, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation.
We use the equity method to account for investments in entities that we do not control, but over which we have the ability to exercise significant influence. We generally refer to these entities as "joint ventures." We have eliminated all intercompany transactions and accounts. We have reclassified amounts previously reported to conform to the presentation as of and for the three month period ended March 31, 2017. We present the notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements on the basis of continuing operations, unless otherwise stated.
Unless the context otherwise indicates, "we," "us" and "our" mean BWXT and its consolidated subsidiaries.
Reportable Segments
We operate in three reportable segments: Nuclear Operations Group, Nuclear Services Group and Nuclear Power Group. Our reportable segments reflect changes we made during the first quarter of 2017 in the manner for which our segment operating information is reported for purposes of assessing operating performance and allocating resources. Prior to 2017, we reported three segments: Nuclear Operations, Nuclear Energy and Technical Services. The U.S. nuclear services business, a component of our former Nuclear Energy segment, is now reported in our Nuclear Services Group segment along with our former Technical Services segment. The remainder of our former Nuclear Energy segment is now reported in our Nuclear Power Group segment, which comprises our Canadian operations, including the recently acquired BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. Our Nuclear Operations Group segment represents our former Nuclear Operations segment. The change in our reportable segments had no impact on our previously reported consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. We have applied the change in reportable segments to previously reported historical financial information and related disclosures included in this report. Our reportable segments are further described as follows:
Our Nuclear Operations Group segment manufactures naval nuclear reactors for the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE")/National Nuclear Security Administration's ("NNSA") Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, which in turn supplies them to the U.S. Navy for use in submarines and aircraft carriers. Through this segment, we own and operate manufacturing facilities located in Lynchburg, Virginia; Mount Vernon, Indiana; Euclid, Ohio; Barberton, Ohio; and Erwin, Tennessee. The Barberton and Mount Vernon locations specialize in the design and manufacture of heavy components. The Euclid facility fabricates electro-mechanical equipment and performs design, manufacturing, inspection, assembly and testing activities. The Lynchburg operations fabricate fuel-bearing precision components that range in weight from a few grams to hundreds of tons. In-house capabilities also include wet chemistry uranium processing, advanced heat treatment to optimize component material properties and a controlled, clean-room environment with the capacity to assemble railcar-size components. Fuel for the naval nuclear reactors is provided by Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. ("NFS"), one of our wholly owned subsidiaries. Located in Erwin, Tennessee, NFS also downblends Cold War-era government stockpiles of highly enriched uranium into material suitable for further processing into commercial nuclear reactor fuel.
Our Nuclear Services Group segment provides various services to the U.S. Government and the commercial nuclear industry. Services provided to the U.S. Government include nuclear materials management and operation, environmental management and administrative and operating services for various U.S. Government-owned facilities. These services are provided to the DOE, including the NNSA, the Office of Nuclear Energy, the Office of Science and the Office of Environmental Management; the Department of Defense and NASA. Through this segment we deliver services and management solutions to nuclear and high-consequence operations. A significant portion of this segment's operations are conducted through joint ventures.

On December 16, 2016, our subsidiary BWXT Canada Ltd. acquired the outstanding stock of the GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. joint venture, which was renamed BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. ("NEC"). NEC is a leading supplier of nuclear fuel, fuel handling systems, tooling delivery systems and replacement components for CANDU reactors and has approximately 350 employees. NEC operates two facilities licensed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission ("CNSC") to fabricate natural uranium fuel in Peterborough and Toronto, Ontario, Canada as well as a third facility in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada. The acquisition of NEC expanded our existing commercial nuclear products and services portfolio, allowing us to leverage our technology-based competencies in offering new products and services related to plant life extensions as well as the ongoing maintenance of nuclear power generation equipment and is reported within our Nuclear Power Group segment. For additional information on the acquisition of NEC, see Note 2 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
For financial information about our segments, see Note 9 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and the related footnotes included in our 2016 10-K.
Deconsolidation of Generation mPower LLC
On March 2, 2016, we entered into a framework agreement with Bechtel Power Corporation ("Bechtel"), BWXT Modular Reactors, LLC and BDC NexGen Power, LLC for the potential restructuring and restart of our mPower small modular reactor program (the "Framework Agreement"). As a result of entering into the Framework Agreement, we deconsolidated Generation mPower LLC ("GmP") from our financial statements as of the date of the Framework Agreement. We recorded a gain of approximately $13.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2016 related to the deconsolidation of GmP as a component of Other – net in our condensed consolidated statement of income.
For additional information on the Framework Agreement, see Note 4 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Contracts and Revenue Recognition
We generally recognize contract revenues and related costs on a percentage-of-completion method for individual contracts or combinations of contracts based on work performed, man hours or a cost-to-cost method, as applicable to the product or activity involved. We recognize estimated contract revenue and resulting income based on the measurement of the extent of progress towards completion as a percentage of the total project. Certain costs may be excluded from the cost-to-cost method of measuring progress, such as significant costs for materials and major third-party subcontractors, if it appears that such exclusion would result in a more meaningful measurement of actual contract progress and resulting periodic allocation of income. We include revenues and related costs so recorded, plus accumulated contract costs that exceed amounts invoiced to customers under the terms of the contracts, in contracts in progress. We include in advance billings on contracts billings that exceed accumulated contract costs and revenues and costs recognized under the percentage-of-completion method. Most long-term contracts contain provisions for progress payments. Our unbilled receivables do not contain an allowance for credit losses as we expect to invoice customers and collect all amounts for unbilled revenues. We review contract price and cost estimates periodically as the work progresses and reflect adjustments proportionate to the percentage-of-completion in income in the period when those estimates are revised. For all contracts, if a current estimate of total contract cost indicates a loss on a contract, the projected loss is recognized in full when determined.

Table of Contents

For contracts as to which we are unable to estimate the final profitability except to assure that no loss will ultimately be incurred, we recognize equal amounts of revenue and cost until the final results can be estimated more precisely. For these deferred profit recognition contracts, we recognize revenue and cost equally and only recognize gross margin when probable and reasonably estimable, which we generally determine to be when the contract is approximately 70% complete. We treat long-term contracts that contain such a level of risk and uncertainty that estimation of the final outcome is impractical, except to assure that no loss will be incurred, as deferred profit recognition contracts.
Our policy is to account for fixed-price contracts under the completed-contract method if we believe that we are unable to reasonably forecast cost to complete at start-up. Under the completed-contract method, income is recognized only when a contract is completed or substantially complete.

Restricted Cash and Cash Equivalents
At March 31, 2017, we had restricted cash and cash equivalents totaling $8.8 million, $2.9 million of which was held for future decommissioning of facilities (which is included in other assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets) and $5.9 million of which was held to meet reinsurance reserve requirements of our captive insurer.
Warranty Expense
We accrue estimated expense included in cost of operations on our condensed consolidated statements of income to satisfy contractual warranty requirements when we recognize the associated revenue on the related contracts. In addition, we record specific provisions or reductions where we expect the actual warranty costs to significantly differ from the accrued estimates. Such changes could have a material effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
The following summarizes the changes in the carrying amount of our accrued warranty expense:

Provision for Income Taxes
We are subject to federal income tax in the U.S. and Canada as well as income tax within multiple U.S. state jurisdictions. We provide for income taxes based on the enacted tax laws and rates in the jurisdictions in which we conduct our operations. These jurisdictions may have regimes of taxation that vary with respect to nominal rates and with respect to the basis on which these rates are applied. This variation, along with changes in our mix of income within these jurisdictions, can contribute to shifts in our effective tax rate from period to period.
With the spin-off of our former Power Generation business in the second quarter of 2015, we began recognizing our consolidated income tax provision based on the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due to the presumed repatriation of our Canadian earnings. With the acquisition of NEC in the fourth quarter of 2016, we now expect that we will reinvest the undistributed earnings of our foreign subsidiaries indefinitely. As a result, in the fourth quarter of 2016, we began recording our Canadian income tax provision based on the Canadian local statutory rate of approximately 25%.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was approximately 30.6% as compared to 23.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was lower than our statutory rate primarily due to a $2.3 million benefit recognized for excess tax benefits related to employee share-based payments. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was lower than our statutory rate primarily due to the $13.6 million non-taxable gain recognized related to the deconsolidation of GmP.
As of March 31, 2017, we have gross unrecognized tax benefits of $1.9 million, all of which would reduce our effective tax rate if recognized.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In July 2015, the FASB issued an update to the Topic Inventory. This update requires reporting entities measuring inventories under the first-in, first-out or average cost methods to measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value, where net realizable value is "estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation." Inventory was previously required to be measured at the lower of cost or market value, where the measurement of market value had several potential outcomes. On January 1, 2017, we adopted this update. The adoption of these provisions did not have an impact on our financial statements.

11

Table of Contents

New Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the FASB issued the Topic Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in the Topic Revenue Recognition and most industry specific guidance. The core principle of this guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. The guidance also outlines a five-step model whereby revenue is recognized as performance obligations within a contract are satisfied, as well as new, expanded disclosures.
In August 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of this amendment until 2018. The FASB has also issued numerous technical corrections and improvements to update its guidance, which will become effective upon adoption. The update may be adopted either retrospectively to each prior period or as a cumulative-effect adjustment on the date of adoption.
We commenced our assessment of the standard and have developed a project plan to guide the implementation. This plan includes analyzing the standard's impact on our contract portfolio, comparing current accounting policies and practices to the requirements of the new standard and identifying potential differences from applying the requirements of the new standard to our contracts. While this assessment continues, we have not yet selected a transition method nor have we yet determined the effect of the standard on our financial statements.
In February 2016, the FASB issued an update to the Topic Leases, which supersedes the lease reporting requirements in Topic Leases (previously "FAS 13"). This update requires that a lessee recognize on its balance sheet the assets and liabilities for all leases with lease terms of more than 12 months, along with additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures. The effect of leases in a consolidated statement of income and a consolidated statement of cash flows is expected to be largely unchanged. Accounting by lessors was not significantly impacted by this update. This update will be effective for us in 2019, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on our financial statements.
In October 2016, the FASB issued an update to the Topic Statement of Cash Flows. This update clarifies guidance on the classification and presentation of restricted cash in the statement of cash flows. Restricted cash will now be included in the cash and cash equivalent balances in the statement of cash flows. Reconciliations between the balance sheet and the statement of cash flows, along with additional disclosures if certain criteria are met, are now required as well. This update is applicable to us and will be effective for interim periods beginning in 2018, with early adoption permitted. The amendments in this update are to be applied retrospectively. This update will affect the presentation of restricted cash and cash equivalents on the statement of cash flows, but will otherwise not have a material impact to our financial statements. We expect to adopt the provisions in this update effective January 1, 2018.
In March 2017, the FASB issued an update to the Topic Compensation – Retirement Benefits. This update amends the guidance on the consolidated statement of income presentation of the components of net periodic benefit cost related to defined benefit pension and postretirement plans. Under current GAAP, components of net periodic benefit cost are aggregated and reported net in the consolidated statements of income as part of operating income. This update requires entities to disaggregate the service cost component of net periodic benefit cost and present it with other current compensation costs within operating income. Other components of net periodic benefit cost are required to be classified outside of operating income within the consolidated statements of income. These changes to classification within the consolidated statements of income will result in no changes to net income. This update will be effective for us in 2018 with retrospective presentation. The impact of this update on our consolidated statements of income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 would be a reduction of Operating Income, along with a corresponding increase to Other Income (Expense), of $6.9 million and $6.6 million, respectively. The impact of this update on our consolidated statement of income for the year ended December 31, 2016 would be a reduction of Operating Income, along with a corresponding increase to Other Income (Expense), of $4.8 million, which includes a Mark to Market loss of $21.5 million.
NOTE 2 – ACQUISITIONS
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. Acquisition
On December 16, 2016, our subsidiary BWXT Canada Ltd. acquired the outstanding stock of the GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. joint venture for CAD 157.9 million ($117.8 million U.S. Dollar equivalent), subject to customary working capital, cash and debt adjustments, which was renamed BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. ("NEC"). NEC is a leading supplier of nuclear fuel, fuel handling systems, tooling delivery systems and replacement components for CANDU reactors and has approximately 350 employees. NEC operates two facilities licensed by the CNSC to fabricate natural uranium fuel in Peterborough and Toronto, Ontario, Canada as well as a third facility in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada. The acquisition of NEC expanded our existing commercial nuclear products and services portfolio, allowing us to leverage our technology-based

NOTE 4 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Other than as noted below, there have been no material changes during the period covered by this Form 10-Q in the status of the legal proceedings disclosed in Note 11 to the consolidated financial statements in Part II of our 2016 10-K.
Investigations and Litigation
Apollo and Parks Township
In January 2010, Michelle McMunn, Cara D. Steele and Yvonne Sue Robinson filed suit against Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. ("B&W PGG"), Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group, Inc., formerly known as B&W Nuclear Environmental Services, Inc. and now known as BWXT Technical Services Group, Inc. (the "BWXT Parties") and Atlantic Richfield Company ("ARCO") in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Since January 2010, additional suits were filed by additional plaintiffs, and there are currently 17 lawsuits pending in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against the BWXT Parties and ARCO, including the most recent lawsuits filed in June and October 2015. In total, the suits presently involve approximately 107 primary claimants. The primary claimants allege, among other things, personal injuries and property damage as a result of alleged releases of radioactive material relating to the operation, remediation and/or decommissioning of two former nuclear fuel processing facilities located in the Borough of Apollo and Parks Township, Pennsylvania (collectively, the "Apollo and Parks Litigation"). Those facilities previously were owned by Nuclear Materials and Equipment Company, a former subsidiary of ARCO ("NUMEC"), which was acquired by

Table of Contents

B&W PGG. The plaintiffs in the Apollo and Parks Litigation seek compensatory and punitive damages, and in November 2014 delivered a demand of $125.0 million for the settlement of all then-filed actions. While we consider the likelihood of the plaintiffs' recovery to be remote, solely on the basis of this demand we estimate the range of a possible loss at between $0.0 million and $125.0 million. In connection with the spin-off, we agreed to indemnify B&W PGG and its affiliates for any losses arising from the Apollo and Parks Litigation pursuant to the Master Separation Agreement.
Between May 2015 and March 2016, the presiding judge in the Apollo and Parks Litigation granted the BWXT Parties' motions to dismiss or motions for summary judgment in all 17 of the existing lawsuits. Accordingly, all current claims in the Apollo and Parks Litigation have been dismissed by the trial court.
All plaintiffs have filed notices of appeal, and the appeals have been consolidated in the 3rd Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. Although the appeal process could be lengthy, if ultimately upheld the trial court's decisions would result in the dismissal of all 17 law suits.
At the time of ARCO's sale of NUMEC stock to B&W PGG, B&W PGG received an indemnity and hold harmless agreement from ARCO, which has been assigned to BWXT and its affiliates, with respect to claims and liabilities arising prior to or as a result of conduct or events predating the acquisition.
Insurance coverage and/or the ARCO indemnity currently provides coverage for the claims alleged in the Apollo and Parks Litigation, although no assurance can be given that insurance and/or the indemnity will be available or sufficient in the event of liability, if any.
mPower
In April 2014, BWXT announced plans to restructure our mPower program for the development of our mPower reactor to focus on technology development. Since then, BWXT has worked with the DOE, Bechtel - our partner in GmP - and other stakeholders and potential investors in continuing efforts to restructure the mPower program in light of deteriorated market conditions. Although BWXT continued to invest in the program during 2014 and 2015 at the rate of approximately $15.0 million annually, on July 13, 2015, Bechtel provided a written notice asserting that BWXT and GmP were in material breach of the GmP Limited Liability Company Agreement dated February 28, 2011 (the "GmP LLC Agreement"). BWXT asserted, among other things, that it had the right under the LLC Agreement to terminate the mPower program and Bechtel was therefore not entitled to any return of its investment. In October 2015, BWXT and Bechtel agreed to a 60-day period of negotiations for the purpose of negotiating a resolution of these matters, which was subsequently extended.
On March 2, 2016, BWXT entered into a Framework Agreement with Bechtel, BWXT Modular Reactors, LLC and BDC NexGen Power, LLC for the potential restructuring and restart of our mPower program (the "Framework Agreement"). The Framework Agreement provides that during a 12-month fundraising period beginning on the effective date of the Framework Agreement, Bechtel must attempt to secure funding from third parties (including the DOE) to complete development of the mPower Plant design sufficient to achieve design certification by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. During this fundraising period, BWXT continued advancing the mPower design through in-kind engineering services within our previously announced planned mPower project spending of no more than $10.0 million per year.
Under the Framework Agreement, in the event that Bechtel determines in its sole discretion that the mPower program should not be restarted, whether due to (1) adequate third party funding not being secured, (2) the parties being unable to finalize the new GmP limited liability company agreement and other related ancillary agreements, or (3) otherwise, the mPower program would be terminated, GmP would be dissolved and Bechtel would be entitled to payment of a settlement amount of $30.0 million (the "Settlement Amount"). In the quarter ended March 31, 2016, we recognized the $30.0 million Settlement Amount and deconsolidated GmP, which resulted in the recognition of an approximate $13.6 million gain.
On March 16, 2017, we paid the Settlement Amount to Bechtel following the receipt of Bechtel's notice that the mPower program would not be restarted following the expiration of the fundraising period. BWXT and Bechtel are currently working to complete the dissolution of GmP.
Our sole liability and Bechtel's sole remedy arising out of the Framework Agreement is our obligation to pay, and Bechtel's right to receive, respectively, the Settlement Amount. Any and all other previously existing claims, demands or actions between Bechtel and us arising out of the GmP LLC Agreement and related ancillary agreements, whether known or unknown (including Bechtel's previously asserted breach claim for $120.0 million), were released upon our delivery of a letter of credit equal in value to the Settlement Amount on March 2, 2016.

NOTE 5 – DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
Our international operations give rise to exposure to market risks from changes in foreign currency exchange ("FX") rates. We use derivative financial instruments, primarily FX forward contracts, to reduce the impact of changes in FX rates on our operating results. We use these instruments primarily to hedge our exposure associated with revenues or costs on our long-term contracts that are denominated in currencies other than our operating entities' functional currencies. We do not hold or issue derivative financial instruments for trading or other speculative purposes.
We enter into derivative financial instruments primarily as hedges of certain firm purchase and sale commitments denominated in foreign currencies. We record these contracts at fair value on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Based on the hedge designation at the inception of the contract, the related gains and losses on these contracts are deferred in stockholders' equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income until the hedged item is recognized in earnings. Any ineffective portion of a derivative's change in fair value and any portion excluded from the assessment of effectiveness are immediately recognized in Other – net in our condensed consolidated statements of income. The gain or loss on a derivative instrument not designated as a hedging instrument is also immediately recognized in earnings. Gains and losses on derivative financial instruments that require immediate recognition are included as a component of Other – net in our condensed consolidated statements of income.
We have designated all of our FX forward contracts that qualify for hedge accounting as cash flow hedges. The hedged risk is the risk of changes in functional-currency-equivalent cash flows attributable to changes in FX spot rates of forecasted transactions related to long-term contracts. We exclude from our assessment of effectiveness the portion of the fair value of the FX forward contracts attributable to the difference between FX spot rates and FX forward rates. At March 31, 2017, we had deferred approximately $0.1 million of net losses on these derivative financial instruments in accumulated other comprehensive income. Assuming market conditions continue, we expect to recognize substantially all of this amount in the next 12 months.
At March 31, 2017, our derivative financial instruments consisted of FX forward contracts. The notional value of our FX forward contracts totaled $34.4 million at March 31, 2017, with maturities extending to December 2019. These instruments consist primarily of contracts to purchase or sell Canadian dollars. We are exposed to credit-related losses in the event of non-performance by counterparties to derivative financial instruments. We attempt to mitigate this risk by using major financial institutions with high credit ratings. The counterparties to all of our FX forward contracts are financial institutions included in our credit facility. Our hedge counterparties have the benefit of the same collateral arrangements and covenants as described under our credit facility.

We estimate the fair value of investments based on quoted market prices. For investments for which there are no quoted market prices, we derive fair values from available yield curves for investments of similar quality and terms.
Derivatives
Level 2 derivative assets and liabilities currently consist of FX forward contracts. Where applicable, the value of these derivative assets and liabilities is computed by discounting the projected future cash flow amounts to present value using market-based observable inputs, including FX forward and spot rates, interest rates and counterparty performance risk adjustments. At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we had forward contracts outstanding to purchase or sell Canadian dollars, with a total fair value of $(0.1) million and $(0.4) million, respectively.
Other Financial Instruments
We used the following methods and assumptions in estimating our fair value disclosures for our other financial instruments, as follows:
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and cash equivalents. The carrying amounts that we have reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and cash equivalents approximate their fair values due to their highly liquid nature.
Long-term and short-term debt. We base the fair values of debt instruments on quoted market prices. Where quoted prices are not available, we base the fair values on the present value of future cash flows discounted at estimated borrowing rates for similar debt instruments or on estimated prices based on current yields for debt issues of similar quality and terms. The fair value of our debt instruments approximated their carrying value at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
NOTE 7 – STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
Total stock-based compensation for all of our plans recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 totaled $4.7 million and $2.9 million, respectively, with associated tax benefit totaling $1.6 million and $1.0 million, respectively.
NOTE 8 – ACCELERATED SHARE REPURCHASE AGREEMENT
On September 15, 2016, the Company entered into a $200 million accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Agreement") with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association ("Wells Fargo"). Pursuant to the terms of the ASR Agreement, on September 16, 2016, the Company paid Wells Fargo $200 million in cash and received 4,135,435 shares of the Company's common stock. In March 2017, the final settlement of the ASR Agreement was completed, and the Company received an additional 846,568 shares of the Company's common stock. The total number of shares repurchased under the ASR Agreement was 4,982,003 shares at an average price of $40.14 per share based on the volume-weighted average stock price of the Company's common stock traded during the term of the ASR Agreement, less a customary discount.
The Company immediately reduced the outstanding shares used to calculate the weighted-average common shares outstanding for basic and diluted earnings per share as of the dates the initial and final repurchases of shares were physically delivered. The ASR Agreement was accounted for as a treasury stock transaction and forward stock purchase contract. The shares were recorded in treasury stock in the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheet. The forward stock purchase contract was indexed to the Company's own stock and classified as an equity instrument.

Item 2.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
CAUTIONARY STATEMENT CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
The following information should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included under Item 1 of this report and the audited consolidated financial statements and the related notes and Item 7 "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (our "2016 10-K").
In this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise indicates, "we," "us" and "our" mean BWX Technologies, Inc. ("BWXT") and its consolidated subsidiaries.
We are including the following discussion to inform our existing and potential security holders generally of some of the risks and uncertainties that can affect our company and to take advantage of the "safe harbor" protection for forward-looking statements that applicable federal securities law affords.
From time to time, our management or persons acting on our behalf make forward-looking statements to inform existing and potential security holders about our company. In addition, various statements in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, including those that express a belief, expectation or intention, as well as those that are not statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Statements and assumptions regarding expectations and projections of specific projects, our future backlog, revenues, income and capital spending, acquisitions or divestitures, return of capital activities or margin improvement initiatives are examples of forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are generally accompanied by words such as "estimate," "project," "predict," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "plan," "seek," "goal," "could," "intend," "may," "should" or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. In addition, sometimes we will specifically describe a statement as being a forward-looking statement and refer to this cautionary statement.
We have based our forward-looking statements on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our industries and our company. We caution that these statements are not guarantees of future performance and you should not rely unduly on them, as they involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that we cannot predict. In addition, we have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. While our management considers these assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Accordingly, our actual results may differ materially from the future performance that we have expressed or forecast in our forward-looking statements.
We believe the items we have outlined above are important factors that could cause estimates in our financial statements to differ materially from actual results and those expressed in a forward-looking statement made in this report or elsewhere by us or on our behalf. Differences between actual results and any future performance suggested in our forward-looking statements could result from a variety of factors. We have discussed many of these factors in more detail elsewhere in this report and in Item 1A "Risk Factors" in our 2016 10-K. These factors are not necessarily all the factors that could affect us. Unpredictable or unanticipated factors we have not discussed in this report could also have material adverse effects on actual results of matters that are the subject of our forward-looking statements. We do not intend to update our description of important factors each time a potential important factor arises, except as required by applicable securities laws and regulations. We advise our security holders that they should (1) be aware that factors not referred to above could affect the accuracy of our forward-looking statements and (2) use caution and common sense when considering our forward-looking statements.
GENERAL
We operate in three reportable segments: Nuclear Operations Group, Nuclear Services Group and Nuclear Power Group. Our reportable segments reflect changes we made during the first quarter of 2017 in the manner for which our segment operating information is reported for purposes of assessing operating performance and allocating resources. Prior to 2017, we reported three segments: Nuclear Operations, Nuclear Energy and Technical Services. The U.S. nuclear services business, a component of our former Nuclear Energy segment, is now reported in our Nuclear Services Group segment along with our former Technical Services segment. The remainder of our former Nuclear Energy segment is now reported in our Nuclear Power Group segment, which comprises our Canadian operations, including the recently acquired BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. ("NEC"). Our Nuclear Operations Group segment represents our former Nuclear Operations segment. The change in our reportable segments had no impact on our previously reported consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. We have applied the change in reportable segments to previously reported historical financial information and

21

Table of Contents

related disclosures included in this report. In general, we operate in capital-intensive industries and rely on large contracts for a substantial amount of our revenues. We are currently exploring growth strategies across our segments to expand and complement our existing businesses. We would expect to fund these opportunities with cash on hand or by raising additional capital through debt, equity or some combination thereof.
Nuclear Operations Group
The revenues of our Nuclear Operations Group segment are largely a function of defense spending by the U.S. Government. Through this segment, we engineer, design and manufacture precision naval nuclear components and reactors for the DOE/NNSA's Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. As a supplier of major nuclear components for certain U.S. Government programs, this segment is a significant participant in the defense industry.
Nuclear Services Group
Our Nuclear Services Group segment provides various services to the U.S. Government and the commercial nuclear industry primarily in the U.S. The revenues and equity in income of investees under our U.S. Government contracts are largely a function of spending of the U.S. Government and the performance scores we and our consortium partners earn in managing and operating high-consequence operations at U.S. nuclear weapons sites and national laboratories. With its specialized capabilities of full life-cycle management of special materials, facilities and technologies, we believe our Nuclear Services Group segment is well-positioned to continue to participate in the continuing cleanup, operation and management of critical government-owned nuclear sites, laboratories and manufacturing complexes maintained by the DOE, NASA and other federal agencies.
This segment is also engaged in inspection and maintenance services for the commercial nuclear industry primarily in the U.S. These services include the inspection of steam generators and heat exchangers, high pressure water lancing, non-destructive examination and the development of customized tooling solutions. This segment also offers complete advanced fuel and reactor engineering, licensing and manufacturing services for new advanced nuclear reactors.
Nuclear Power Group
Through this segment, we design and manufacture commercial nuclear steam generators, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, reactor components, and other auxiliary equipment, including containers for the storage of spent nuclear fuel and other high-level nuclear waste. This segment is a leading supplier of nuclear fuel, fuel handling systems, tooling delivery systems and related services for CANDU nuclear power plants. This segment also provides a variety of engineering and in-plant services and is a significant supplier to nuclear power utilities undergoing major refurbishment projects.
Our Nuclear Power Group segment's overall activity primarily depends on the demand and competitiveness of nuclear energy. The activity of this segment depends on the timing of maintenance outages primarily in the Canadian market and the cyclical nature of capital expenditures and major refurbishments for nuclear utility customers, which could cause variability in our financial results.
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. Acquisition
On December 16, 2016, our subsidiary BWXT Canada Ltd. acquired the outstanding stock of the GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. joint venture, which was renamed BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. ("NEC"). NEC is a leading supplier of nuclear fuel, fuel handling systems, tooling delivery systems and replacement components for CANDU reactors and has approximately 350 employees. NEC operates two facilities licensed by the CNSC to fabricate natural uranium fuel in Peterborough and Toronto, Ontario, Canada as well as a third facility in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada. The acquisition of NEC expanded our existing commercial nuclear products and services portfolio, allowing us to leverage our technology-based competencies in offering new products and services related to plant life extensions as well as the ongoing maintenance of nuclear power generation equipment and is reported within our Nuclear Power Group segment.
For additional information on the acquisition of NEC, see Note 2 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
For a summary of the critical accounting policies and estimates that we use in the preparation of our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, see Item 7 "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of

22

Table of Contents

Operations" in our 2016 10-K. There have been no material changes to our policies during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
Accounting for Contracts
As of March 31, 2017, in accordance with the percentage-of-completion method of accounting, we have provided for our estimated costs to complete all of our ongoing contracts. However, it is possible that current estimates could change due to unforeseen events, which could result in adjustments to overall contract costs. A principal risk on fixed-priced contracts is that revenue from the customer is insufficient to cover increases in our costs. It is possible that current estimates could materially change for various reasons, including, but not limited to, fluctuations in forecasted labor productivity or steel and other raw material prices. In some instances, we guarantee completion dates related to our projects or provide performance guarantees. Increases in costs on our fixed-price contracts could have a material adverse impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Alternatively, reductions in overall contract costs at completion could materially improve our consolidated results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. In the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we recognized net changes in estimates related to long-term contracts accounted for on the percentage-of-completion basis, which increased operating income by approximately $4.9 million and $2.3 million, respectively.

Consolidated Results of Operations
Consolidated revenues increased 17.4%, or $63.4 million, to $428.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $364.8 million for the corresponding period in 2016, due to increases in revenues from our Nuclear Operations Group and Nuclear Power Group segments totaling $29.8 million and $41.5 million, respectively. These increases were slightly offset by a decrease in revenues in our Nuclear Services Group segment of $6.1 million.
Consolidated operating income increased $40.6 million to $83.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $42.6 million for the corresponding period of 2016. We experienced operating income improvements in our Nuclear Operations Group, Nuclear Power Group and Other segments of $8.3 million, $6.8 million and $0.3 million, respectively, as well as a decrease in unallocated corporate expenses of $0.3 million. The increase was also driven by the recognition of a $30.0 million charge related to the mPower Framework Agreement, which we entered into in the quarter ended March 31, 2016 for the potential restructuring and restart of the mPower program. These increases were offset by lower operating income in our Nuclear Services Group segment of $5.1 million.

Revenues increased 10.1%, or $29.8 million, to $325.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $295.3 million for the corresponding period of 2016. The increase was attributable to increased activity in the manufacturing of nuclear components for U.S. Government programs of $17.3 million as well as our naval nuclear fuel and downblending operations of $10.7 million.
Operating income increased $8.3 million to $73.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $64.9 million for the corresponding period of 2016. The increase in operating income was primarily driven by the increase in revenue noted above as well as net favorable changes in estimates related to certain long-term contracts accounted for on the percentage-of-completion basis.

Revenues decreased 18.1%, or $6.1 million, to $27.9 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $34.0 million for the corresponding period of 2016. The decrease was primarily attributable to the timing of maintenance outages in the commercial U.S. nuclear utility market.
Operating income decreased $5.1 million to $0.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $5.8 million in the corresponding period of 2016. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenue associated with our U.S. nuclear services business noted above. In addition, we experienced lower fee income of $1.2 million related to a joint venture project in Idaho that was transitioned to a third party during 2016.

The increase is primarily attributable to the acquisition of NEC in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016, which produced revenues totaling $26.6 million in the three month period ended March 31, 2017. Revenue in our nuclear equipment business increased $17.4 million primarily due to design and manufacturing work associated with major life extension and refurbishment projects for the Canadian nuclear market, that included the fabrication of replacement steam generators, reactor components and containers for the storage of spent nuclear fuel and other high-level waste. These increases were partially offset by a lower volume of outage projects when compared to the same period of the prior year, resulting in a decrease in revenue of $2.5 million for our legacy services business in Canada when compared to the same period in the prior year.

We primarily operate in the U.S. and Canada, and we recognize our U.S. income tax provision based on the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% and our Canadian tax provision based on the Canadian local statutory rate of approximately 25%.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was approximately 30.6% as compared to 23.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was lower than our statutory rate primarily due to a $2.3 million benefit recognized for excess tax benefits related to employee share-based payments. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was lower than our statutory rate primarily due to the $13.6 million non-taxable gain recognized related to the deconsolidation of Generation mPower LLC.
Backlog
Backlog is not a measure defined by generally accepted accounting principles. It is possible that our methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to methods used by other companies. We generally include expected revenue from contracts in our backlog when we receive written confirmation from our customers authorizing the performance of work and a commitment from the customer to payment for work performed. We are subject to the budgetary and appropriation cycle of the U.S. Government as it relates to our Nuclear Operations Group and Nuclear Services Group segments. Backlog may not be indicative of future operating results, and projects in our backlog may be cancelled, modified or otherwise altered by customers. We do not include orders of our unconsolidated joint ventures in backlog. These unconsolidated joint ventures are primarily included in our Nuclear Services Group segment.

At March 31, 2017, Nuclear Operations Group backlog with the U.S. Government was $3,398.5 million, of which $313.0 million had not yet been funded.
At March 31, 2017, Nuclear Services Group backlog with the U.S. Government was $11.1 million, all of which was funded.
At March 31, 2017, Nuclear Power Group had no backlog with the U.S. Government.
Major new awards from the U.S. Government are typically received following congressional approval of the budget for the government's next fiscal year, which starts October 1, and may not be awarded to us before the end of the calendar year. Due to the fact that most contracts awarded by the U.S. Government are subject to these annual funding approvals, the total values of the underlying programs are significantly larger. In April 2016, we were awarded a component and fuel contract, along with a three-year downblending contract by the U.S. Government with a combined value in excess of $3.0 billion, inclusive of unexercised options.
As of March 31, 2017, the U.S. Government had awarded BWXT approximately $2.2 billion of the April 2016 award. The value of unexercised options as of March 31, 2017 was approximately $0.8 billion, which are expected to be exercised periodically through 2018, subject to annual congressional appropriations.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Credit Facility
On September 2, 2016, we entered into an amendment (the "Amendment") to our Credit Agreement dated May 11, 2015 with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, and certain lenders and letter of credit issuers party thereto (collectively, the "Amended Credit Agreement"). Prior to the Amendment, our Credit Agreement provided for a five-year, senior secured revolving credit facility in an aggregate amount of up to $400 million, the full amount of which is available for the issuance of letters of credit, and a senior secured term loan facility of $300 million, which was drawn on June 30, 2015. The Amendment added a new U.S. dollar term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $112.5 million, which was drawn on September 16, 2016, and a new Canadian dollar term loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to the equivalent of $137.5 million U.S. dollars, which was drawn on December 12, 2016 (collectively, the "Incremental Term Loans"). All obligations under the Amended Credit Agreement are scheduled to mature on June 30, 2020. The proceeds of loans under the Amended Credit Agreement are available for working capital needs and other general corporate purposes.
The Amended Credit Agreement includes provisions for additional financial institutions to become lenders, or for any existing lender to increase its commitment thereunder, subject to an aggregate maximum of $250 million for all additional term loans, revolving credit borrowings and letter of credit commitments.
The Amended Credit Agreement is (1) guaranteed by substantially all of our wholly owned domestic subsidiaries, excluding our captive insurance subsidiary, and (2) secured by first-priority liens on certain assets owned by us and the

guarantors (other than our subsidiaries comprising our Nuclear Operations Group and a portion of our Nuclear Services Group segments).
The Amended Credit Agreement requires interest payments on revolving loans on a periodic basis until maturity. We began making quarterly amortization payments on the $300 million term loan in an amount equal to 1.25% of the aggregate principal amount in the first quarter of 2016. We began making quarterly amortization payments on the U.S. dollar term loan facility in an amount equal to 1.25% of the aggregate principal amount in the fourth quarter of 2016. We began making quarterly amortization payments on the Canadian dollar term loan facility in an amount equal to 1.25% of the aggregate principal amount in the first quarter of 2017. We may prepay all loans under the Amended Credit Agreement at any time without premium or penalty (other than customary Eurocurrency Rate breakage costs), subject to notice requirements.
The Amended Credit Agreement includes financial covenants that are tested on a quarterly basis, based on the rolling four-quarter period that ends on the last day of each fiscal quarter. The maximum permitted leverage ratio is 3.00 to 1.00, which may be increased to 3.25 to 1.00 for up to four consecutive fiscal quarters after a material acquisition. The minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio is 4.00 to 1.00. In addition, the Amended Credit Agreement contains various restrictive covenants, including with respect to debt, liens, investments, mergers, acquisitions, dividends, equity repurchases and asset sales. At March 31, 2017, we were in compliance with all covenants set forth in the Amended Credit Agreement.
Outstanding loans under the Amended Credit Agreement bear interest at our option at either the Eurocurrency Rate plus a margin ranging from 1.25% to 1.75% per year or the base rate (the highest of the Federal Funds rate plus 0.50%, the one-month Eurocurrency Rate plus 1.0%, or the administrative agent's prime rate) plus a margin ranging from 0.25% to 0.75% per year. We are charged a commitment fee on the unused portion of the revolving credit facility, and that fee varies between 0.15% and 0.25% per year. Additionally, we are charged a letter of credit fee of between 1.25% and 1.75% per year with respect to the amount of each financial letter of credit issued under the Amended Credit Agreement, and a letter of credit fee of between 0.75% and 1.05% per year is charged with respect to the amount of each performance letter of credit issued under the Amended Credit Agreement. The applicable margin for loans, the commitment fee and the letter of credit fees set forth above will vary quarterly based on our leverage ratio. Based on the current leverage ratio, the applicable margin for Eurocurrency Rate loans is 1.50%, the letter of credit fee for financial letters of credit is 1.50%, the letter of credit fee for performance letters of credit is 0.90% and the commitment fee for unused portions of the revolving credit facility is 0.225%.
Upon the closing of the Credit Agreement and the subsequent Amendment, we paid certain upfront fees to the lenders thereunder, and paid arrangement and other fees to the arrangers and agents of the Amended Credit Agreement.
At March 31, 2017, borrowings outstanding totaled $525.9 million and $50.0 million under our term loans and revolving line of credit, respectively, and letters of credit issued under the Amended Credit Agreement totaled $125.1 million. As a result, we had $224.9 million available for borrowings or to meet letter of credit requirements as of March 31, 2017, excluding the additional $250 million available to us for term loan, revolving credit borrowings and letter of credit commitments. As of March 31, 2017, the weighted-average interest rate on outstanding borrowings under our Amended Credit Agreement was 2.32%, which includes an applicable interest rate for the revolving credit facility of 2.41%.
The Amended Credit Agreement generally includes customary events of default for a secured credit facility, some of which allow for an opportunity to cure. If an event of default relating to bankruptcy or other insolvency events occurs under the Amended Credit Agreement, all obligations under the Amended Credit Agreement will immediately become due and payable. If any other event of default exists under the Amended Credit Agreement, the lenders will be permitted to accelerate the maturity of the obligations outstanding under the Amended Credit Agreement. If any event of default occurs under the Amended Credit Agreement, the lenders will be permitted to terminate their commitments thereunder and exercise other rights and remedies, including the commencement of foreclosure or other actions against the collateral.
If any default occurs under the Amended Credit Agreement, or if we are unable to make any of the representations and warranties in the Amended Credit Agreement, we will be unable to borrow funds or have letters of credit issued under the Amended Credit Agreement.
Other Arrangements
We have posted surety bonds to support contractual obligations to customers and certain government agencies relating to certain projects and performance obligations. We utilize bonding facilities to support such obligations, but the issuance of bonds under those facilities is typically at the surety's discretion. Although there can be no assurance that we will maintain our surety bonding capacity, we believe our current capacity is adequate to support our existing project requirements for the next 12 months. In addition, these bonds generally indemnify customers should we fail to perform our obligations under the applicable

27

contracts. We, and certain of our subsidiaries, have jointly executed general agreements of indemnity in favor of surety underwriters relating to surety bonds those underwriters issue in support of some of our contracting activity. As of March 31, 2017, bonds issued and outstanding under these arrangements in support of contracts totaled approximately $2.9 million.
Long-term Benefit Obligations
Our unfunded pension and postretirement benefit obligations totaled $364.5 million at March 31, 2017. These long-term liabilities are expected to require use of our resources to satisfy future funding obligations. We expect to make contributions of approximately $21.1 million for the remainder of 2017 related to our pension plans and postretirement plans.

Our working capital increased by approximately $107.4 million to $361.1 million at March 31, 2017 from $253.7 million at December 31, 2016, primarily attributable to an increase in trade accounts receivable and a decrease in current liabilities associated with the payment of accrued incentives and the mPower Framework Agreement settlement payment that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
