B/E Aerospace Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results; EPS $0.74 Excluding Debt Prepayment Costs; Raises 2012 Guidance And Provides 2013 Guidance

Operating earnings, adjusted to exclude $4.6 million of AIT costs, were $138.9 million, an increase of 23.9 percent, and operating margin of 18.1 percent increased 50 basis points as compared to the prior year period. The growth in operating earnings and the improvement in operating margin occurred primarily as a result of operating leverage at the higher sales volume and ongoing operational efficiency initiatives. Operating earnings, on a GAAP basis to include AIT costs, were $134.3 million or 17.5 percent of sales.

Net earnings and earnings per diluted share, adjusted to exclude both one-time debt prepayment costs and AIT costs, were $79.2 million and $0.77 per diluted share, increases of 21.1 percent and 20.3 percent, respectively, as compared to the prior year period. Net earnings and net earnings per diluted share, adjusted to exclude the one-time debt prepayment costs, were $76.0 million and $0.74 per diluted share.

Commenting on the Company’s third quarter 2012 performance, Amin J. Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B/E Aerospace said, “Our revenue growth continues to be driven primarily by the robust new aircraft delivery cycle. Approximately 61 percent of third quarter revenues were driven by demand for products for new-buy aircraft reflecting both robust new aircraft deliveries and weaker aftermarket demand. In addition, as a result of our operational outperformance which has resulted in record operating earnings for the nine-month year-to-date period, and successfully executed tax planning initiatives we have been able to raise our 2012 earnings guidance to $2.82 per share. The $2.82 per share guidance represents a $0.17 per share increase as compared to our original guidance of $2.65 per share.”

“For 2013, we are expecting top line growth of approximately 10 percent driven primarily by the demand for our products for new-buy aircraft. Our initial 2013 guidance of approximately 10 percent revenue growth and approximately 20 percent earnings per share growth is based primarily on our high quality backlog and the expectation of strong wide-body deliveries that are expected to continue for the next several years. We believe we are well positioned to generate double-digit revenue growth for the next several years, based on our total backlog of $8.25 billion, both booked and awarded but unbooked, rapidly growing revenues from our supplier furnished equipment (SFE) program deliveries, our expectation for a 14 percent CAGR in wide-body aircraft deliveries over the next three years, the expectation for continued growth in global passenger travel, and the attendant increases in capacity.”
