HEICO Corporation Reports Record Net Sales And Net Income For The First Quarter Of Fiscal 2013; Full Year Sales And Net Income Growth Estimates Raised

Stocks in this article: HEI

(NOTE: HEICO has two classes of common stock traded on the NYSE.  Both classes, the Class A Common Stock (HEI.A) and the Common Stock (HEI), are virtually identical in all economic respects.  The only difference between the share classes is the voting rights.  The Class A Common Stock (HEI.A) receives 1/10 vote per share and the Common Stock (HEI) receives one vote per share.)

There are currently approximately 31.6 million shares of HEICO's Class A Common Stock (HEI.A) outstanding and 21.4 million shares of HEICO's Common Stock (HEI) outstanding.  The stock symbols for HEICO's two classes of common stock on most websites are HEI.A and HEI.  However, some websites change HEICO's Class A Common Stock trading symbol (HEI.A) to HEI/A or HEIa.

As previously announced, HEICO will hold a conference call on Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time to discuss its first quarter results.  Individuals wishing to participate in the conference call should dial:  U.S. and Canada (877) 586-4323, International (706) 679-0934, wait for the conference operator and provide the operator with the Conference ID 11128596.  A digital replay will be available two hours after the completion of the conference for 14 days.  To access, dial: (404) 537-3406, and enter the Conference ID 11128596.

HEICO Corporation is engaged primarily in certain niche segments of the aviation, defense, space, medical, telecommunications and electronics industries through its Hollywood, Florida-based Flight Support Group and its Miami, Florida-based Electronic Technologies Group.  HEICO's customers include a majority of the world's airlines and overhaul shops as well as numerous defense and space contractors and military agencies worldwide in addition to medical, telecommunications and electronics equipment manufacturers.  For more information about HEICO, please visit our website at .

Certain statements in this press release constitute forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties and contingencies.  HEICO's actual results may differ materially from those expressed in or implied by those forward-looking statements as a result of factors including, but not limited to: lower demand for commercial air travel or airline fleet changes, which could cause lower demand for our goods and services; product specification costs and requirements, which could cause an increase to our costs to complete contracts; governmental and regulatory demands, export policies and restrictions, reductions in defense, space or homeland security spending by U.S. and/or foreign customers or competition from existing and new competitors, which could reduce our sales; HEICO's ability to introduce new products and product pricing levels, which could reduce our sales or sales growth; and HEICO's ability to make acquisitions and achieve operating synergies from acquired businesses, customer credit risk, interest and income tax rates and economic conditions within and outside of the aviation, defense, space, medical, telecommunications and electronics industries, which could negatively impact our costs and revenues.  Parties receiving this material are encouraged to review all of HEICO's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, but not limited to filings on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Form 8-K.  We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by applicable law.

(a)   In January 2013, Section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code, "Credit for Increasing Research Activities," was retroactively extended to cover a two year period from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2013. As a result, an income tax credit for qualified research and development activities for the last ten months of fiscal 2012 was recognized by the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The tax credit, net of expenses, increased net income attributable to HEICO by approximately $1.0 million, or $.02 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended January 31, 2013.
(b)   All fiscal 2012 share and per share information has been adjusted retrospectively to reflect a 5-for-4 stock split effected in April 2012.
