- Net Income Rises 64% to $1.7 Million, or $0.29 per Diluted Share

FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 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 third quarter of fiscal 2012 were $27.5 million, a record for EDAC and an increase of 26% from the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The 2012 third quarter included a full quarter of sales from EBTEC Corporation, which the Company acquired on June 1, 2012, totaling $3.2 million. Before including EBTEC, the Company's sales increased 11% from the prior year third 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 third quarter of 2012 increased 50% from the third quarter of 2011 to $5.8 million, and represented 21.2% of third quarter 2012 sales versus 17.8% of sales in the third quarter of 2011. 

Operating income increased 69%, to $3.0 million, compared with the third quarter of last year, yielding an operating margin of 10.8% of sales compared with 8.1% in the third quarter of 2011.

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 increased 64% to $1.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with $1.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, reported for the third quarter of 2011. There were more diluted shares in the 2012 third quarter, including 150,523 shares issued as part of the EBTEC purchase.

The Company's total long-term debt, including current portion, at September 29, 2012 was $30.5 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 September 29, 2012 increased to $313.7 million from $304.3 million at June 30, 2012 and included a previously announced long-term agreement (LTA) with an OEM customer to produce a major case assembly for a military engine program with U.S. and export applications.

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 third quarter of 2012 were $19.2 million, an increase of 30% from the third quarter of 2011.  This included the sales of EBTEC as well as a 9% increase in the sales of the Company's legacy EDAC AERO business.     

Aerospace Segment operating income increased 81% from the third quarter of 2011 to $1.9 million and represented 9.7% of Aerospace Segment sales versus 7.0% of sales in the third quarter of 2011.

Industrial Segment sales for the third quarter of 2012 increased 17% to $8.3 million compared with the third quarter of 2011.  A 24% increase in the sales of Apex Machine Tool more than offset 2% lower sales for EDAC Machinery in comparison to the third quarter of 2011.  

Industrial Segment operating income increased 51% to $1.1 million, compared with the third quarter of 2011, and represented 13.5% of Industrial Segment sales versus 10.4% of segment sales in the 2011 third quarter.

Subsequent Event

As announced on October 11, 2012, EDAC acquired certain assets of Smith-Renaud, Inc., a privately-owned developer and remanufacturer of centerless grinding systems and a designer, manufacturer and rebuilder of custom precision spindles. 

Summary and Outlook

Dominick Pagano, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We continued to achieve record sales and profits in the third quarter as we made further progress in executing our plan for growth.  Third quarter results benefited from the diversity of our business with prime and top-tier aerospace customers, the transition of our industrial business to more full-scale programs and complex parts, and the broadening of our capabilities through selective acquisitions.

"In our aerospace segment, demand was especially strong in the third quarter for legacy aircraft engine parts and ground-based turbine components.  One area of ongoing focus is to complete the customer approval process for parts produced under a program won last year for Trent 800 and 900 engines.  We are working towards full production ramp-up of approved parts in the 2013 first quarter.  EBTEC has proven to be an ideal fit for our business overall.  Its performance in the first full quarter of being part of EDAC was on-target and accretive to the quarter.

"In our industrial segment, our Apex Machine Tool business continued to benefit from its migration to producing complex ground-based turbine parts for power generation. The performance of our EDAC Machinery product line was also on-target in the third quarter. The recent acquisition of Smith-Renaud assets is an important strategic addition to our core machinery product line, giving us technologies that improve centerless grinding as well as adding proprietary spindle products.   

"We are on-schedule with our plan to relocate our Connecticut operations to our new Cheshire, Conn. facility, with individual equipment foundations poured and the movement of some machinery underway.  APEX Machine Tool is the first of our product lines to be relocated and its full start-up in Cheshire is set to be completed in the 2013 first quarter. The move to this world-class manufacturing facility is a major initiative in supporting our substantial backlog, which is up 24% year-to-date, and accommodating our current and future growth.

"For the first nine months of this year, we have realized a 22% increase in our sales and an 82% increase in our net income compared with same period last year.  Our business, backlog and opportunities remain very strong as we enter the fourth quarter.  Based on our current shipment schedule, we expect fourth quarter sales to be in-line with our third quarter, which is consistent with our prior guidance.  We have made important progress on several strategic fronts in 2012 and are looking forward to additional progress and growth in 2013."
