B/E Aerospace Second Quarter 2011 Results Exceed Expectations; Revenues up 26%, Operating Earnings up 35%, Earnings Per Share up 46%; Full Year 2011 Financial Guidance Increased

WELLINGTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--B/E Aerospace (Nasdaq: BEAV), the world’s leading manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products and the world’s leading distributor of aerospace fasteners and consumables, today announced second quarter 2011 financial results.

SECOND QUARTER 2011 HIGHLIGHTS VERSUS SECOND QUARTER PRIOR YEAR

  • Revenues of $608.9 million increased 25.8 percent. Second quarter bookings of approximately $800 million were a record for any quarter and were approximately 45 percent greater than the same period of the prior year.
  • Operating earnings of $106.7 million increased 35.4 percent. Operating margin of 17.5 percent expanded 120 basis points.
  • Net earnings were $54.8 million; earnings per diluted share were $0.54 and increased 45.9 percent.
  • Full-year 2011 earnings per share guidance increased by $0.10 per share to approximately $2.10 per diluted share.

SECOND QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Second quarter 2011 revenues of $608.9 million increased $125.0 million, or 25.8 percent, as compared with the same period of the prior year. Second quarter 2011 results reflect the acquisitions of TSI Group, Inc., Satair A/S’s aerospace fastener distribution business and LaSalle Lighting (recent acquisitions). Revenue growth for the second quarter of 2011, excluding recent acquisitions from both periods, was approximately 12.8 percent.

Second quarter 2011 operating earnings of $106.7 million increased 35.4 percent on the aforementioned 25.8 percent increase in revenues. Operating margin was 17.5 percent and expanded 120 basis points as compared with the prior year period. Operating earnings growth and operating margin expansion were driven by the higher sales volume, improved revenue mix and ongoing operational efficiency initiatives.

Second quarter 2011 net earnings were $54.8 million. Earnings per diluted share of $0.54 increased 45.9 percent as compared with the prior year period.

Second quarter 2011 free cash flow was $59.0 million and represents a free cash flow conversion ratio of 107.7 percent of net earnings.

Commenting on the company’s recent performance, Amin J. Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B/E Aerospace said, “Our second quarter results included record quarterly bookings, up 45 percent, representing a book to bill ratio of 1.3 to 1. In addition, revenues were up 26 percent, operating earnings were up 35 percent, earnings per share were up 46 percent and the free cash flow conversion ratio was in excess of 100 percent of net earnings. The record bookings performance was driven by strong orders for a broad range of aircraft interior equipment for both new-buy and aftermarket programs. The 120 basis point expansion in operating margin was driven by margin improvements in each of our three business segments.”

“Based on our record backlog, both booked and awarded but unbooked, of approximately $6.5 billion, our expectation for continued growth in passenger travel and attendant increases in capacity, and our expectation of significantly higher levels of wide-body aircraft deliveries, we expect the second half of 2011 to be stronger than the first half of 2011 and accordingly, we have raised our full-year 2011 guidance to approximately $2.10 per diluted share,” concluded Mr. Khoury.

Free cash flow and free cash flow conversion ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. For more information see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This release includes “free cash flow” and “free cash flow conversion ratio” each of which are “non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934.

The company defines “free cash flow” as net cash flows provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The company uses free cash flow to provide investors with an additional perspective on the company’s cash flow provided by operating activities after taking into account reinvestments. Free cash flow does not take into account debt service requirements and therefore does not reflect an amount available for discretionary purposes. The company defines “free cash flow conversion ratio” as free cash flow expressed as a percentage of the company’s net earnings. The company uses free cash flow conversion ratio to provide investors with a measurement of its ability to convert earnings into free cash flow.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, we are providing the following tables that reconcile free cash flow to the most comparable GAAP financial measure:
