PHI, Inc. Announces Results For The Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

PHI, Inc. (The Nasdaq Global Market: PHII (voting) PHIIK (non-voting)) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Oil and Gas segment revenues were $115.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $96.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $18.4 million. Flight hours were 31,608 for the current quarter compared to 29,901 for the same quarter in the prior year. The increase in revenue is primarily due to increased medium and heavy aircraft flight hours and revenues, due to an increase in deepwater drilling activity compared to the same period in 2011 when there was no significant deepwater drilling activity due to the Deepwater Horizon incident.

Our Oil and Gas segment profit was $19.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $13.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Operating margins (segment profit divided by operating revenues) were 17% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 14% for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in segment profit of $5.9 million was primarily due to increased revenues of $18.4 million, partially offset by increased direct expenses of $12.4 million. The Oil and Gas segment revenues are primarily driven by contracted aircraft and flight hours. Costs are primarily fixed, and are driven by the number of aircraft, and a portion is variable which is driven by flight hours.

Air Medical segment revenues were $54.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $46.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $7.1 million. The increase was primarily due to increased revenue of $6.0 million in the independent provider programs related to improved payor mix, rate increases implemented in 2011 and 2012, and increased patient transports. Operating revenues related to hospital based contracts increased $1.1 million due primarily to revenue recorded in the quarter related to mobilization of aircraft for the SRCA project. Total patient transports were 4,986 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 4,881 for the three months ended September 30, 2011.
