- Net Income Rises 48% to $1.4 Million, or $0.26 per Diluted Share

FARMINGTON, Conn., Aug. 1, 2012 /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 second quarter of fiscal 2012 were a record $26.5 million, an increase of 21% from the second quarter of fiscal 2011. The 2012 second quarter included $1.1 million of sales from EBTEC Corporation, representing the one month of sales recorded by EBTEC from the date of its acquisition by EDAC on June 1, 2012. 

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 second quarter of 2012 increased 44% from the second quarter of 2011 to $5.2 million, and represented 19.8% of second quarter 2012 sales versus 16.6% of sales in the second quarter of 2011 and 18.1% of sales in the 2012 first quarter. 

Operating income also increased 44%, to $2.5 million, compared with the second quarter of last year, yielding an operating margin of 9.4% of sales compared with 7.9% in the second quarter of 2011 and 8.8% of sales in the 2012 first quarter.  This improvement was achieved even after including $450,000 of acquisition expense for EBTEC recorded in SG&A in the 2012 second quarter.  Before including the acquisition expense, operating income for the second quarter of 2012 increased 70% from the 2011 second quarter and represented 11.1% of sales.

Net income for the second quarter of 2012 increased 48% to $1.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared with $977,000, or $0.19 per diluted share, reported for the second quarter of 2011. There were more diluted shares in the 2012 second quarter, including 150,523 shares issued as part of the purchase amount for EBTEC.

The Company's total long-term debt, including current portion, at June 30, 2012 was $31.3 million. This included mortgages on all its current facilities in Connecticut, including Plainville, which is in the process being sold.  The Company also plans to sell its remaining Connecticut facilities, with the exception of its new Cheshire facility, and use the full proceeds to retire the mortgages associated with them totaling $7 million.

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 second quarter of 2012 were $18.7 million, an increase of 31% from the second quarter of 2011.  This included the one month of EBTEC sales as well as a 23% increase in the sales of the Company's legacy EDAC AERO business.  The increase reflected initial shipment of parts for Trent aircraft engines under a long-term agreement (LTA) with Rolls Royce as well as shipment of new shop assist parts and of other fully developed and spare parts.   

Aerospace Segment operating income increased 51% from the second quarter of 2011 to $1.4 million and represented 7.6% of Aerospace Segment sales versus 6.6% of sales in the second quarter of 2011 and 9.3% of sales in the 2012 first quarter. Before including the EBTEC acquisition expense, operating income rose to 10.0% of sales for the Aerospace Segment in the 2012 second quarter.

Industrial Segment sales for the second quarter of 2012 increased 3% to $7.8 million compared with the second quarter of 2011.  A 21% increase in the sales of Apex Machine Tool offset 40% lower sales for EDAC Machinery, which was caused by a shift in shipment schedules on two orders into the second half of 2012.  The increase in Apex Machine Tool sales reflected additional shipments for a ground-based turbine retrofit program as well as to new customers and increased business with current customers.  

Industrial Segment operating income increased 34% to $1.1 million, compared with the second quarter of 2011, and represented 13.5% of Industrial Segment sales versus 10.3% of segment sales in the 2011 second quarter and 7.5% in the first quarter of 2012.  This was mainly due to a favorable shift in product mix.

The Company noted that SG&A expense for the second quarter of 2012 was $2.8 million, or 10.4% of sales, compared to 8.7% of sales in the second quarter of 2011 and 9.4% in the 2012 first quarter.  Before including the EBTEC acquisition expense, SG&A as a percentage of sales was 8.7% in the 2012 second quarter.

The Company also noted that total sales backlog at June 30, 2012 remained strong at $304.3 million, compared with $310.4 million at March 31, 2012 and $168.0 million at the end of the 2011 second quarter.

State of Connecticut Financing for Cheshire Facility

Separately, EDAC said that the State of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and the State Bond Commission have approved a $6.6 million capital equipment loan for the Cheshire facility.  EDAC will use the loan, which will bear interest at a preferential rate, for the acquisition of machinery and equipment for the Cheshire facility.  EDAC may be eligible for loan principal forgiveness of up to $500,000 for creating 50 jobs or up to $1 million for creating 100 jobs within five years. Furthermore, the Cheshire property is in an Enterprise Zone and may also qualify for certain tax abatement incentives. 

Summary and Outlook

Dominick Pagano, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "Our second quarter was a very strong quarter for EDAC, with continued record sales and profitability, even before including the benefit of our acquisition of EBTEC. The diversity of the programs and customers we serve, the depth of our manufacturing capabilities, and the expanded range of products we are reliably delivering to customers have been major drivers of our sales growth over the past several quarters. Our profitability is continuing to strengthen with the further implementation of advanced manufacturing best practices company-wide combined with our increased sales level.

"EBTEC is proving to be an ideal fit for our business, with the addition of its advanced welding and other high energy beam capabilities strengthening our position with our aerospace customers and increasing their confidence in our ability to further ramp-up to meet the growing demand in aerospace.  EBTEC is also benefiting from the addition of our core competency in turning, which expands their portfolio of services, increases their ability to ramp-up and is adding to the confidence of their customers as well.  Thus far, we have seamlessly integrated EBTEC into our operations.  It was accretive to our second quarter results.

"We continued to maintain a very strong level of backlog even after a quarter of record sales.  Our plan is to only add to it with LTAs that fully meet our profitability objectives. A group of potential LTAs is being bid in the third and fourth quarters. 

"To support the ramp-up required to meet our current backlog, we recently announced the purchase of Pratt & Whitney's world class manufacturing facility in Cheshire, Conn., where we intend to consolidate all of our Connecticut operations.  The Cheshire facility will not only alleviate our current capacity constraints, but also enable us to add state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and optimally configure the facility to deploy lean processes, cellular manufacturing and centers of excellence.  We have already started to move equipment to Cheshire in line with our facility integration plan and expect to complete the plan by the end of 2013.  We also are very grateful for the State of Connecticut's support, in the form of financing incentives for this project that is essential for our Company's continued growth.

Mr. Pagano concluded: "The sales achieved in our legacy EDAC business in the 2012 second quarter were in line with our budget and our growth plan. Based on current shipment schedules, we continue to expect that legacy sales in the remaining two quarters of the year will be in line with the first quarter of 2012, as we previously forecasted. EBTEC's monthly sales should continue at the level achieved in June and therefore will be additive to our sales each quarter.  With 20% sales growth achieved through the first half of 2012 and our positive outlook for the second half of the year, we are well on track to meet or exceed $100 million in sales for full year 2012.  Our strategic initiatives in the second quarter position us for further growth in the future."
