Atlas Air Worldwide Reports Double-Digit Earnings Increase, Updates 2012 EPS Expectation

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW), a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services, today announced double-digit earnings growth for the third quarter of 2012 and provided updated guidance for full-year earnings growth in excess of 13% on both a reported and adjusted basis.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, net income attributable to common stockholders increased 20% to $33.9 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, compared with $28.2 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

On an adjusted basis, third-quarter 2012 net income attributable to common stockholders rose 10% to $33.4 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, compared with $30.4 million, or $1.15 per share, in the third quarter of 2011.

Revenues in the third quarter of 2012 grew 13%, increasing to $409.3 million from $362.9 million in the third quarter of 2011.

“Our third-quarter results highlight the transformation and diversification of our business model and the essential elements of our growth story. We have built a resilient company that is delivering increasing earnings, improved margins and growing free cash flow in a challenging business environment,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“In an airfreight market that has underperformed expectations this year and in the face of a marked decline in military cargo demand, we are executing on our strategic growth plan that leverages our core competencies and underscores our ability to perform well in all economic conditions.

“We have aggressively managed and modernized our fleet, developed and grown our express network ACMI service, and are adding our new 747-8F aircraft. We’re also capitalizing on new organizational capabilities, such as our military passenger flying, CMI operations and 767 service, and we are driving additional operating efficiencies through our culture of continuous improvement.”

Third-Quarter Results

Revenue and profitability growth in our core, long-term ACMI business during the third quarter were driven by our new 747-8F aircraft, which began to enter service late in the fourth quarter of 2011. Volume growth was primarily due to the continued ramp up of CMI flying for Boeing and DHL Express. ACMI results during the period benefited from higher rates per block hour and lower maintenance expense for our 747-8Fs, partially offset by the redeployment of 747-400 aircraft to other business segments. ACMI customers flew 5.2% above contractual minimums during the quarter.
