Atlas Air Worldwide Reports Second-Quarter Earnings, Reaffirms 2012 EPS Expectation

Stocks in this article: AAWW

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW), a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services, today announced earnings for the second quarter of 2012 and reaffirmed guidance for full-year earnings in excess of $5.10 per diluted share on both a reported and adjusted basis.

For the three months ended June 30, 2012, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $31.2 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, compared with $26.0 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2011.

On a reported basis, second-quarter 2012 net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $30.9 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, compared with $23.8 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011.

Revenues totaled $424.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $349.6 million in the second quarter of 2011.

“Earnings in the second quarter of 2012 were driven by the strength and resilience of our business model as well as our ability to leverage the scale and efficiencies inherent in our operations,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We also saw an increase in contributions from the investments we’ve made to diversify and grow our revenue and earnings streams.

“Our new 747-8F aircraft, which are providing efficient, wide-body, long-haul cargo service for our customers, supported volumes and profitability in our core ACMI business during the quarter. ACMI customers flew more than 4% above contractual minimums during the period, and CMI flying for Boeing and DHL Express continued to ramp up.

“In AMC Charter, volumes and profitability increased as strong growth in our military passenger service outweighed a moderation in AMC cargo demand. And in Commercial Charter, higher volumes and profitability reflected the scale and flexibility of our operations. We deployed an additional 747-400 aircraft to support increased demand in South America, and we responded to relatively solid demand in other markets, particularly from the high-tech and automotive industries, with two 747-400 cargo aircraft that were available during their ACMI remarketing periods. These aircraft returned to ACMI service in June and July 2012, demonstrating the strong interest in our 747-400 aircraft.”
