TAT Technologies Reports Year 2012 Third Quarter Results

GEDERA, Israel, November 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



TAT Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: TATT - News), a leading provider of services and products to the commercial and military aerospace and ground defense industries, reported today its results for the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012.

Financial Highlights:

TAT announced revenues of $22.1 million with a net income of $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to revenues of $20.7 million with a net loss of $3.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011 - an increase of 6.6% in revenues. The net loss reported for the 2011 third quarter was the result of a $5.76 million (before taxes) write down of inventories and impairment charges of long lived assets ($3.61 million, net of taxes). Excluding these charges net profit for the 2011 third quarter was $0.3 million which reflects an increase of 440% in net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 comparing to the corresponding period.

During the Third quarter of 2012, revenues were impacted by (i) the increase in revenues in the OEM of Heat Management Solutions segment; (ii) the increase in revenues in the OEM of Electric Motion Systems segment; (iii) the increase in revenues in the MRO Services for Aviation Components segment; (iv) partially offset by the decrease in revenues in the Heat Transfer Services and Products segment.  

Revenue breakdown by operating segments for the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, was as follows:

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, TAT announced revenues of $64.9 million with a net loss of $1.8 million compared to revenues of $62.0 million with net loss of $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 - an increase of 4.6% in revenues. The net loss reported for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 is the result of a $1.0 million impairment charge of goodwill, recorded in the second quarter of 2012, in TAT's OEM for Electric Motion Systems operating segment and the $3.3 million impairment charge, also recorded in the second quarter of 2012, with respect to TAT's investment in FAvS (see further below). The net loss reported for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 was the result of a $5.76 million (before taxes) write down of inventories and impairment charges of long lived assets ($3.61 million, net of taxes). Excluding these impairment charges net profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $2.5 million similar to the net profit for nine months ended September 30, 2011.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, revenues were impacted by the increase in revenues in all our significant operating segments - the OEM of Heat Management Solutions segment, the Heat Transfer Services and Products segment and the MRO Services for Aviation Components segment; while revenues in the OEM of Electric Motion Systems significantly decreased due to growing weakness in the relevant defense markets. This decrease is a continuation of the decrease in revenues this segment had experienced during 2011.

Mr. Itsik Maaravi, TAT's CEO commented:  

"The results of the 2012 third quarter reflect the trend of continuous improvement Year over Year as we continued to increase revenues and gross margins compared to the corresponding periods in 2011. These improvements are attributed to the increase in our marketing and sales efforts during 2011 through 2012 as well as to our rigorous and continuing activity in improving our production flow and yields.

The increasing fuel costs continue to impact the Commercial Airlines business environment by reducing airlines' profitability and offsetting the positive impact of growing air traffic. As a result, airlines defer MRO activities and utilizing existing stock (destocking) rather than maintaining inventory levels. On the other hand, we continue to witness positive indications from commercial OEMs in the aerospace industry that increase backlog of new airplanes and/or airborne platforms/systems. The defense market however shows growing weakness and is impacted by budget constraints.

We are encouraged by our ability to maintain a steady growth in our key businesses while all of the above impacts our businesses. The weakness in the defense market which is mostly relevant to the OEM of Electric Motion Systems operating segment, resulted in a decrease of our revenues in this segment compared to 2011.

We continue to focus on our core capabilities and believe that our efforts will sustain the trend of improved performance for the remainder of 2012 and in 2013.

We are continuing to preserve a strong balance sheet with limited liabilities, strong working capital and sufficient financial assets to support the growth of our operations".

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2012, TAT had cash and cash equivalents and short-term bank deposits of $25.3 million, marketable securities of $1.8 million and restricted cash of $3.0 million, which equals $30.1 million of financial assets, compared with cash and cash equivalents and short-term deposits of $28.4 million, short term investments and marketable securities of $2.5 million and restricted cash of $4.5 million, which equals $35.4 million of financial assets as of September 30, 2011. Financial assets, net of debt were $24.7 million in September 30, 2012 compared to $23.8 million in September 30, 2011

On May 21, 2012, TAT's Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase plan under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The plan was for a period of 6 months (subject to extension) and provided for the purchase of shares in an aggregate amount of up to $0.5 million U.S. dollars. Such plan replaced and superseded a prior repurchase plan approved by TAT's Board of Directors' on February 21, 2012. As of September 30, 2012, the Company had purchased 9,733 shares for approximately $41 thousands (average of $4.19 per share) constituting less than 0.1% of TAT's issued shares. On November 21, the term of such stock repurchase plan ended. As of such date, the Company had purchased 16,433 shares for approximately $71 thousands (average of $4.32 per share).

On November 6, 2012, the Company made a prepayment of $775 thousands, on account of loans in the total amount of $6.25 million received by the Company from an Israeli bank, following which its remaining balance was $2.5 million.

Grant of options

Following the approval of TAT's Audit committee and Board of Directors, on June 28, 2012, the Company's shareholders approved a plan (the "Plan") to grant up to 380,000 options ("Options") to purchase Ordinary shares, 0.9 NIS par value, of the Company to senior executives and certain members of the Board of Directors, at an exercise price of $6.5 per share. The Options vest over a three-year period (one-third each year), but the vesting of 50% of the Options is subject, in addition, to certain minimum shareholders' equity during a period of 4 years from the grant date. On August 21, 2012, pursuant to the Plan, TAT's Board of Directors approved the grant of 330,000 Options, which were granted on October 4, 2012 (out of which 45,000 options were forfeited on October 30, 2012).

Seasonality

In the OEM industry in general and in TAT's OEM businesses in particular, the majority of customers operate based on annual budgets and tend to utilize during the fiscal fourth quarter the remaining balance of any un-used budgets. This trend is more typical with customers from the defense industry. Accordingly, TAT is more likely to generate increased revenues in the OEM businesses (such as TAT's OEM of Heat Management Solutions and OEM of Electric Motion Systems) during the fiscal fourth quarter. The aviation industry is known for its highest traffic in the third quarter, primarily attributable to summer vacations. As a result, during the fiscal third quarter, airlines tend to postpone, to the extent possible, maintenance and repair of their aircraft to minimize aircraft grounding. Accordingly, TAT is more likely to notice decreased revenues in the MRO businesses (such as TAT's MRO for Aviation Components and Heat Transfer Services and Products) during the fiscal third quarter with recovery during subsequent quarters.  

TAT's executive offices are located in the Re'em Industrial Park, Neta Boulevard, Bnei Ayish, Gedera 70750, Israel, and TAT's telephone number is 972-8-862-8500.
