Atlas Air Worldwide Reports Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Earnings

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW), a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating solutions, today announced a 23% increase in adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2012, with adjusted net income rising to $48.7 million, or $1.83 per diluted share. For the full year, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders rose 17% to $127.0 million, or $4.78 per share.

On a reported basis, net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $52.4 million, or $1.97 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter, and $129.9 million, or $4.89 per diluted share, for the year.

Adjusted earnings exclude net gains in the fourth quarter and for the full year that primarily reflected an insurance gain of $0.15 per diluted share related to flood damage at an aircraft parts warehouse during Superstorm Sandy.

Revenues grew 17% to $452.8 million in the fourth quarter and 18% to $1.65 billion for the year. Free cash flow for 2012 totaled $208.5 million.

“Our fourth-quarter and our full-year results highlight the resilience of our business model and our ability to deliver improved margins, strong earnings and growing free cash flow in a challenging business environment,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We are executing a strategic plan that leverages our core competencies. Our plan includes 747-8F aircraft in ACMI; new organizational capabilities, such as our military passenger flying, growing CMI operations and expanding 767 service; and additional operating efficiencies driven by our culture of continuous improvement.

“As a result, we achieved the best quarterly and second-best annual operating results in the company’s history and generated significant free cash flow. We also maintained a strong balance sheet, and we expect that cash in excess of business investments and balance sheet maintenance will be available to return capital to stockholders through share repurchases beginning this quarter.
