Wesco Aircraft Holdings Reports Results for Fiscal First Quarter 2013

Wesco Aircraft Holdings, Inc. (“Wesco Aircraft” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WAIR), a leading provider of comprehensive supply chain management services to the global aerospace industry, today announced results for its fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Highlights

  • Revenue of $211.2 million, up 9.7% compared to $192.6 million in the prior year
  • Net Income of $18.4 million, with Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.19
  • Adjusted Net Income of $24.1 million, with Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.25
  • Full year 2013 guidance unchanged for sales of $865 to $890 million, Diluted EPS of $1.08 to $1.12, and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $1.14 to $1.19.

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

Revenue for the first fiscal quarter was $211.2 million, an increase of 9.7% compared to $192.6 million in the prior year period. The increase in the North America segment was 10.3% which was mainly driven by the Interfast acquisition. Wesco again demonstrated strong international growth during the quarter with revenues in the Rest of World segment increasing by 32.9% compared to the prior year. In the first quarter, Ad Hoc, JIT and LTA sales as a percentage of net sales represented 40%, 26% and 34%, respectively, compared to 35%, 31% and 34%, respectively, for the same period last year.

Net income for the first quarter was $18.4 million, resulting in Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.19. This compares to $23.2 million, or $0.24 per share in the prior year period. The reduction in Diluted Earnings Per Share was primarily the result of a write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the recent refinancing of the Company's debt and credit facilities (approx. $0.03 per share) and integration costs associated with the recent acquisition of Interfast ($0.01 per share). Excluding these and other unusual items, Adjusted Net Income was $24.1 million and Adjusted Earnings Per Share was $0.25 in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to $24.3 million or $0.26 per share in the prior year period. The current year period benefitted from higher sales, primarily due to the Interfast acquisition, and a lower tax rate. Offsetting these benefits were lower gross margins due to changes in the hardware sales mix as well as lower margin electronic product sales growing more rapidly than our hardware sales along with the addition of SG&A costs associated with the Interfast business.

Wesco Aircraft’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Randy Snyder said, “Our first quarter results were strong and give us high confidence in our full year guidance for sales growth and earnings per share. We are experiencing high levels of activity in bookings, additions to our current contracts, and contract signings with new customers, which adds to our optimism for the rest of the year and beyond. The Interfast integration is also going very well and exceeding my expectations. None of this would be achievable without our strong customer relationships, the support of our suppliers and the dedicated efforts of the best employees in the business.”

Financial Outlook

Based on our performance during the first quarter, Wesco reiterates its guidance for 2013 and expects full year revenues to be between $865 and $890 million, representing a growth rate of approximately 11% to 15% over 2012 results. Diluted EPS and Adjusted Diluted EPS are expected to be in the range of $1.08 to $1.12, and $1.14 to $1.19, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

‘‘Adjusted Net Income’’ represents Net Income before: (i) amortization of intangible assets, (ii) amortization or write-off of deferred financing costs and original issue discount, or OID, (iii) unusual or non-recurring items and (iv) the tax effect of items (i) through (iii) above calculated using an assumed effective tax rate.

“Adjusted Basic EPS” represents Basic EPS calculated using Adjusted Net Income as opposed to Net Income.

“Adjusted Diluted EPS” represents Diluted EPS calculated using Adjusted Net Income as opposed to Net Income.

‘‘Adjusted EBITDA’’ represents Net Income before: (i) income tax provision, (ii) net interest expense, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) Carlyle Acquisition related non-cash stock-based compensation expense and (v) unusual or non-recurring items.

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. 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. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Basic EPS, 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.

Wearable technology was dominant at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) , and MWC was no exception to this trend. New versions of favorites, such as the Samsung Gear (three new products were released: the Gear 2, the Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit), shared the limelight with new wearables like Pebble Time Steel (the new premium version of the company’s previously released smartwatch) and the LG Watch Urbane. The most dramatic difference at MWC was an emphasis on presenting wearables as fashion accessories and moving away from the original clunky technology associated with t...

The list of ‘new paradigm’ technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts’ at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.

Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model.

This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
