World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE:INT) today reported third quarter net income of $42.7 million or $0.61 diluted earnings per share compared to $43.7 million or $0.62 diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2015. Excluding the impact of certain non-recurring expenses, adjusted third quarter net income was $45.1 million or $0.65 adjusted diluted earnings per share. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter, excluding share-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets were $57.2 million and $0.82, respectively, compared to $54.2 million and $0.77 in 2015.

"Our aviation segment posted record results in the third quarter driven by seasonally strong core resale operations in North America, Europe and Asia as well as continued strength in government-related fueling activities, illustrating the strength of our diversified portfolio as it served to offset continued weakness in the marine markets," stated Michael J. Kasbar, chairman and chief executive officer of World Fuel Services Corporation. "As we continue to develop and integrate our broad-based global energy management, fulfillment and payment platforms, our focus on increasing operating efficiency and expanding our value-added service offerings will serve us well as we look to execute on our long-term growth initiatives."

The company's aviation segment generated gross profit of $111.7 million, an increase of $4.8 million or 4.5% year-over-year. The company's land segment posted gross profit of $87.8 million, an increase of $16.5 million or 23.2% year-over-year. The company's marine segment generated gross profit of $37.2 million, a decrease of $11.4 million or 23.4% year-over-year.

"We again generated positive operating cash flow this quarter, further contributing to our strong liquidity profile," said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "As announced today, we also amended our credit facility, which increases the aggregate size of our revolving credit facility and term loan by approximately $500 million to $2.1 billion, extends the term of the facility to October 2021 and offers more favorable terms, all of which provides us with even greater flexibility to execute on our strategic growth initiatives."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs associated with share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, expenses related to acquisitions and other related charges, deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments, and termination of employment agreement primarily because we do not believe they are reflective of the Company's core operating results. We believe the exclusion of share-based compensation from operating expenses is useful given the variation in expense that can result from changes in the fair value of our common stock, the effect of which is unrelated to the operational conditions that give rise to variations in the components of our operating costs. Also, we believe the exclusion of the amortization of acquired intangible assets, the expenses related to acquisitions and other related charges, and termination of employment agreement expenses are useful for purposes of evaluating operating performance of our core operating results and comparing them period over period. In accordance with the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, acquired deferred revenue is often recorded on the opening balance sheet at an amount that is lower than the historical carrying value. Although this acquisition accounting requirement has no impact on our business or cash flows, it adversely impacts our reported GAAP revenue in the reporting periods following an acquisition. We believe that the exclusion of the deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustment is useful to investors as an additional means to reflect trends of our business and provides investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered in conjunction with our financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, are useful to investors to further aid in evaluating the ongoing financial performance of the Company and to provide greater transparency as supplemental information to our GAAP results.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, our presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per common share may not be comparable to the presentation of such metrics by other companies. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing non-GAAP net income attributable to World Fuel and available to common shareholders by the sum of the weighted average number of shares of common stock, stock units, restricted stock entitled to dividends not subject to forfeiture and vested RSUs outstanding during the period and the number of additional shares of common stock that would have been outstanding if our outstanding potentially dilutive securities had been issued. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
