Dépèche transmise le 9 août 2011 par Business Wire

VALENCIA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wesco Aircraft Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: WAIR), a leading provider of comprehensive supply chain management services to the global aerospace industry, today announced results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2011.

“During the quarter, we remained focused on improving our processes and expanding our product offering. We believe that we are well positioned to capitalize on the aerospace industry growth cycle, which we believe will support the continued growth of our business”

Highlights

  • Revenue was $180.0 million, a company record, up 5.2% compared to $171.1 million in the third quarter of 2010
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $43.9 million, compared to $45.9 million in the third quarter of 2010
  • Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.23, compared to $0.26 in the third quarter of 2010
  • Completed an initial public offering of 21.0 million shares of common stock on August 2, 2011

Fiscal 2011 3rd Quarter Results

Revenue for the third fiscal quarter was $180.0 million, an increase of 5.2% compared to $171.1 million in the prior year period. Wesco continued to experience strong international growth during the quarter. Ad hoc, JIT and LTA sales as a percentage of net sales represented 40%, 28% and 32%, respectively, compared to 35%, 32% and 33%, respectively, for the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was $43.9 million as compared to $45.9 million in the third quarter of 2010. The change was primarily due to a decline in the gross profit percentage caused by changes in the sales mix. Net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $14.0 million, or Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS) of $0.15. This compared to $21.5 million, or $0.24 per share in the prior year period. This decline was primarily driven by the recording of a loss on the extinguishment of debt in the amount of $7.1 million in conjunction with the April 2011 debt refinancing, and $2.5 million of fees related to Wesco’s initial public offering. Adjusted Net Income was $21.1 million, or $0.23 per share, compared to $23.6 million, or $0.26 per share in the prior year period, driven by the decline in the gross profit percentage.

Randy Snyder, Wesco's Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer said, "First, we are very excited that Wesco Aircraft is now a public company. I want to thank all of our employees and those outside the company that helped make this possible. This is the culmination of a goal that I have had for a long time. With that said, we are pleased with our performance this quarter as we report record revenues, and continue to strengthen our competitive position globally."

"During the quarter, we remained focused on improving our processes and expanding our product offering. We believe that we are well positioned to capitalize on the aerospace industry growth cycle, which we believe will support the continued growth of our business," added Snyder.

Financial Outlook

Based on the strong performance during the first three quarters of the fiscal year and current outlook for the fourth quarter, Wesco expects full year revenues for fiscal 2011 of between $704 million and $708 million, representing a growth rate of 7% to 8% over our 2010 results. Diluted EPS and Adjusted Diluted EPS are expected to be in the range of $0.79 to $0.82, and $0.93 to $0.96, respectively. These EPS estimates are based on an estimated 2011 fiscal year average diluted share count of 93.4 million.

Wesco utilizes and discusses Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Basic EPS, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures our management uses to evaluate our business, because we believe they assist investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. We believe these metrics are used in the financial community, and we present these metrics to enhance investors, understanding of our operating performance and cash flow. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as an alternative to Net Income, determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indicator of operating performance, or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indicator of our cash flow. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and these metrics may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. See below for a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Basic EPS, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
