FARMINGTON, Conn., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EDAC Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: EDAC), a diversified designer, manufacturer and servicer of precision components for aerospace and industrial applications, reported today that sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were a record $28.4 million, an increase of 25% from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The 2012 fourth quarter included sales of $2.9 million from EBTEC Corporation, which the Company acquired on June 1, 2012. Before including EBTEC, the Company's sales increased 13% from the prior year fourth quarter.

Both the Company's Aerospace Segment, which includes EBTEC, and its Industrial Segment contributed to EDAC's year-over-year sales growth and higher profitability.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 35% from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $5.5 million, and represented 19.3% of fourth quarter 2012 sales versus 17.9% of sales in the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Operating income increased 27% to $2.6 million, compared with the fourth quarter of last year, yielding an operating margin of 9.1% of sales compared with 9.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 31% to $1.5 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared with $1.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. There were more diluted shares in the 2012 fourth quarter, including 150,523 shares issued as part of the EBTEC purchase.

For full year 2012, EDAC's sales increased 23% to $106.5 million compared with full year sales of $86.6 million in 2011.  Full year 2012 sales were up 15% before including EBTEC.  Net income for 2012 increased 65% to $5.9 million or $1.04 per diluted share compared with $3.6 million or $0.68 per diluted share in 2011.  

The Company's total long-term debt, including current portion, at December 29, 2012 was $29.8 million.  This includes mortgages on all its current facilities in Connecticut, including Plainville, which is in the process of being sold.  The Company plans to sell other of its Connecticut facilities as it consolidates them into a recently-acquired world-class facility in Cheshire, Conn. and use the proceeds to retire the mortgage debt associated with each facility as it is sold.

The Company's total sales backlog at December 29, 2012 was to $304.0 million compared with $313.7 million at September 29, 2012 and $252.1 million at the end of fiscal 2011.

Segment Review

The Company has two business segments: the Aerospace Segment, which consists of its EDAC AERO and EBTEC product lines; and the Industrial Segment, which includes the APEX Machine Tool and EDAC Machinery product lines.

Aerospace Segment sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were a record $20.6 million, an increase of 36% from the fourth quarter of 2011.  This included the sales of EBTEC as well as a 17% increase in the sales of the Company's legacy EDAC AERO business.     

Aerospace Segment operating income increased 15% from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $1.6 million and represented 7.8% of Aerospace Segment sales versus 9.2% of sales in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Industrial Segment sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 4% to $7.8 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, reflecting a 4% increase in the sales of Apex Machine Tool and a 3% increase in the sales of EDAC Machinery.  

Industrial Segment operating income increased 55% to $1.0 million, compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, and represented 12.4% of Industrial Segment sales versus 8.4% of segment sales in the 2011 fourth quarter.

Summary and Outlook

Dominick Pagano, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "Our strong fourth quarter performance capped a record year for EDAC.  The 25% increase in fourth quarter sales was mainly driven by our aerospace segment. In addition to the contribution of EBTEC in the quarter, our legacy aerospace business grew 17% reflecting sales across legacy, current and emerging engine programs, with sales of military and replacement parts especially strong. Our sales also included stationary components for the Dreamliner, and for the GE 90, where we have reached full ramp-up, as well as rotating parts for industrial gas turbines and development parts for Pratt & Whitney's geared turbofan engine.  We also continued to ramp-up production of parts for Trent 800 and 900 engines. We expect our margins to improve on this program as we optimize the processes for individual parts.

"Our industrial segment also contributed to our fourth quarter growth.  Sales for our Apex Machine Tool product line were better than expected, with favorable product mix and additional sales of complex ground-based turbine parts for power generation. Sales of our EDAC Machinery product line also increased, despite the further push out of a large order into 2013. The profitability of this segment is continuing to benefit from our focus on more full-scale programs and complex parts.

"A major strategic initiative for EDAC in 2012 was the purchase of a state-of-art manufacturing facility in Cheshire, Conn.  The relocation of our operations to Cheshire remains on schedule, with the move and start-up of Apex Machine Tool nearly completed. We expect the majority of the relocation to be completed in 2013 and the majority of the expenses for the move to be recognized this year as well.  Despite these expenses, we expect to achieve further growth in our margins with the efficiencies we will gain in the new facility along with the higher sales we are targeting.    

"Based on our strong backlog and current shipment schedule, we expect first quarter 2013 sales, including EBTEC, to be in-line with the 2012 fourth quarter.  We are fully focused on executing our plan to achieve profitable growth in 2013 and beyond."
