ATSG Growth Continues As Midsize Freighter Leasing Expands

CAM to deploy 20th B767 freighter for Amazon; Northern Aviation Services commits to three B767 leases

WILMINGTON, Ohio--()--Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATSG), the leading provider of medium wide-body aircraft leasing, air cargo transportation and related services, today reported consolidated financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

“Following a great first half, our outlook for the last six months of 2017 remains positive as we complete the Amazon deployments and lease more freighters to other customers”

Compared with amounts for the second quarter of 2016 (except as noted):

  • Revenues increased $77 million, or 43 percent, to $253.2 million. Excluding revenues from reimbursable airline expenses, revenues increased $60 million, or 37 percent. ATSG's airline services operations, and maintenance and logistics businesses, recorded double-digit revenue increases.
  • GAAP Earnings from Continuing Operations were a loss of $53.9 million or $0.91 per share diluted and included charges totaling $67.8 million for the warrants granted last year in connection with operating and lease agreements with Amazon Fulfillment Services, Inc. The value of the warrants increased sharply during the quarter in conjunction with a 36 percent increase in the traded price of ATSG stock since March 31, 2017, resulting in a significant mark-to-market loss for the quarter. Earnings from Continuing Operations were a positive $11.5 million, or $0.12 per share diluted a year earlier.
  • Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations, which exclude non-cash warrant-related items, were $13.9 million, up 64 percent. Adjusted Earnings Per Share from Continuing Operations were $0.21, up eight cents per share. These Adjusted Earnings and other adjusted amounts referenced below are non-GAAP financial measures, and are reconciled to comparable GAAP results in tables in this release. Adjustments include both dollar-amount and share count items.
  • GAAP Pre-tax Earnings from Continuing Operations were a negative $48.4 million, versus a positive $18.8 million a year ago. Adjusted Pre-tax Earnings, which exclude warrant effects along with additional non-cash items, increased 39 percent to $22.7 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, as defined and adjusted in a table later in this release) increased 23 percent to $64.2 million.
  • Capital expenditures in the first half of 2017 were $144.3 million, versus $125.1 million in the first half of 2016.
  • Share repurchases were $11.2 million for the first half. This includes 380,637 shares ATSG repurchased in June as part of an underwritten secondary offering by an affiliate of Red Mountain Capital Partners.

Joe Hete, President and Chief Executive Officer of ATSG, said, “In addition to the outstanding financial results we are reporting today, I’m pleased to say that we are scheduled to deliver the twentieth leased Boeing 767 freighter to Amazon later this week, 17 months after we formalized our relationship in March 2016. Our total leased-aircraft portfolio has grown by eight 767s as of June 30, compared to the same date a year ago. Excluding the two 767-300s required to complete Amazon's twenty-aircraft order, our current purchase and conversion commitments will yield twelve additional 767-300s extending through the first half of next year. We currently have signed leases or are finalizing others for nine of the twelve aircraft. The remaining three aircraft are under discussion with multiple parties."

ATSG's results for the first half of 2017 included a revenue increase of 39 percent to $491.1 million, and GAAP Earnings from Continuing Operations of negative $44.1 million, or a $0.75 loss per share. First-half Adjusted Earnings From Continuing Operations were $25.1 million, up 48 percent from a year ago. On a per-share adjusted basis, ATSG earned $0.38 per share, up from $0.26 in the first half of 2016.

Segment Results

Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM)

CAM   Second Quarter   Six Months
($ in thousands) 2017   2016 2017   2016
Aircraft leasing and related revenues $ 52,813 $ 48,373 $ 103,382 $ 100,099
Lease incentive amortization (3,283 ) (934 ) (5,874 ) (934 )
Total CAM revenues $ 49,530   $ 47,439   $ 97,508   $ 99,165  
Pre-Tax Earnings   $ 12,795     $ 16,229     $ 26,125     $ 35,739  
 

Significant Developments:

  • CAM's revenues increased $2.1 million to $49.5 million from the second quarter last year, and included $3.3 million of non-cash amortization associated with the warrant-related Amazon lease incentive. Excluding this lease incentive, CAM’s revenues increased nine percent. CAM was leasing forty-five 767s to external customers as of June 30, 2017, ten more than a year earlier.
  • Pre-tax earnings were $12.8 million for the quarter, down $3.4 million. Principal effects were the warrant-related lease incentive, increased depreciation, and higher pre-deployment expenses.
  • At June 30, 2017, CAM owned 64 Boeing cargo aircraft, all of which were in service, including fifty-six 767s. Eight other aircraft were awaiting or undergoing modification from passenger to freighter configuration at the end of the quarter, including six 767s and two 737s. In addition to the six 767s in mod, CAM expects to close on purchases of seven additional 767s in the last half of 2017. CAM currently has no 767 purchase commitments in 2018.
  • In July, CAM announced long-term dry lease commitments for three 767-300 freighters with Northern Aviation Services, for deployments beginning with the first in October and two during the first quarter of 2018. Some may replace 767 freighters that ATSG's airlines operate for Northern on an ACMI basis.
  • Production delays at CAM's freighter modification contractor this year will defer two 767s expected to be deployed in the second half of 2017 into 2018.

ACMI Services

ACMI Services   Second Quarter   Six Months
($ in thousands) 2017   2016 2017   2016
Revenues
Airline services $ 111,851 $ 98,187 $ 219,917 $ 199,840
Reimbursables 32,648   15,958   69,531   29,261  
Total ACMI Services Revenues 144,499 114,145 289,448 229,101
 
Pre-Tax Earnings (Loss)   87     (7,130 )   (3,618 )   (17,486 )

Significant Developments:

  • Airline services revenues increased 14 percent to $111.9 million and the segment recorded a pre-tax profit of $0.1 million in the second quarter. The improvement reflects continued growth of CMI operations for Amazon, and reduced pension expense compared with the second quarter last year.
  • Costs for pilot training and premium pay for pilots who accept additional flying assignments declined from the first quarter, and heavy maintenance expense was lower than projected for the second quarter.
  • Second-quarter block hours increased 29 percent from the year-earlier period. ACMI Services revenues are dependent in part on hours flown as determined by customer network designs, which can change as additional aircraft come on line and networks evolve. Average per-aircraft utilization rates began to decline in late May this year as CMI customers reconfigured their air networks.

Other Activities

Other Activities   Second Quarter   Six Months
($ in thousands) 2017   2016 2017   2016
Revenues $ 116,508 $ 57,253 $ 205,714 $ 112,264
Pre-Tax Earnings   6,539     4,130     11,322     7,998
 

Significant Developments:

  • Total revenues from all other activities in the second quarter more than doubled from a year ago to $116.5 million. External customer revenues increased $43.3 million, to $76.3 million. External maintenance revenues and those from parcel handling and logistical support services increased substantially during the quarter. PEMCO, acquired in December 2016, accounted for $21.1 million of external revenues during quarter.
  • Second-quarter pre-tax earnings of $6.5 million increased 58 percent, reflecting improved results from heavy maintenance and logistics services.
  • As announced this morning, ATSG completed a joint-venture agreement with Precision Aircraft Solutions, LLC, to develop a passenger-to-freighter conversion program for Airbus A321-200 aircraft. The venture anticipates approval of a supplemental type certificate in 2019.

Outlook

ATSG expects that its Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations for 2017 will be approximately $260 million, including a projected 28 percent increase in the second half compared with the prior-year period.

Principal factors affecting our 2017 second-half guidance include:

  • Seven additional freighters will be dry leased in the second half, including five 767s and two 737s. Production delays to complete aircraft cargo modifications have deferred delivery of two 767s from the second half to 2018, reducing Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations by $2.0 to $2.5 million in the second half.
  • A new contract for engine overhauls on General Electric-powered 767-300 aircraft with Delta TechOps will result in $3.0 to $4.0 million in additional maintenance expense for the second half of 2017, with a corresponding decrease in Adjusted EBITDA. The payments to Delta are now recorded as maintenance expense as engine cycles occur, and will yield cash flow savings compared with the prior arrangement. Previously, overhaul events for these engines were capitalized and depreciated.
  • Recent changes by CMI customers to their air networks, which have reduced average utilization and associated variable revenue compared with previous run-rates.

ATSG projects 2017 capital expenditures of approximately $335 million, mostly for purchase and freighter modification of passenger aircraft. The reduction in guidance for capex of $20 million compared to the $355 million projection provided in May is due to production delays in the passenger-to-freighter conversion lines for Boeing 767 aircraft, and lower maintenance capex associated with the new Delta engine contract.

"Following a great first half, our outlook for the last six months of 2017 remains positive as we complete the Amazon deployments and lease more freighters to other customers," Hete said. "Our operational flexibility and broad service offerings keep us well positioned to support customers' long-term and peak shipping season requirements."

Non-GAAP financial measures: This report contains non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to evaluate the Company’s historical results. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures assist in highlighting operational trends, facilitate period-over-period comparisons and provide additional clarity about events and trends impacting core operating performance. Disclosing these non-GAAP measures provides insight to investors about additional metrics that the Company’s management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance

Adjusted Pre-tax Earnings excludes certain items included in GAAP based pre-tax earnings (loss) from continuing operations because they are distinctly different in their predictability among periods or not closely related to our operations. Presenting this measure provides investors with a comparative metric of fundamental operations while highlighting changes to certain items among periods. Adjusted Pre-tax Earnings is defined as Earnings (Loss) from Continuing Operations Before Income Taxes less financial instrument gains or losses, non-service components of retiree benefit costs, lease incentive amortization and the write-off of debt issuance costs from a non-consolidating affiliate.

Adjusted Pre-tax Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered an alternative to Earnings from Continuing Operations Before Income Taxes or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to assess the performance of its operating results among periods. It is a metric that facilitates the comparison of financial results of underlying operations. Additionally, these non-GAAP adjustments are similar to the adjustments used by lenders in the Company’s Senior Credit Agreement to assess financial performance and determine cost of borrowed funds. The adjustments also exclude the non-service cost components of retiree benefit plans because they are not closely related to on-going operating activities. Management presents EBITDA from Continuing Operations, a commonly referenced metric, as a subtotal toward computing Adjusted EBITDA.

EBITDA from Continuing Operations is defined as Earnings (Loss) from Continuing Operations Before Income Taxes plus net interest expense, depreciation, and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA from Continuing Operations less financial instrument gains or losses, non-service components of retiree benefit costs, amortization of lease incentive costs recorded in revenue and the write-off of debt issuance costs from a non-consolidating affiliate.

Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA from Continuing Operations are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as alternatives to Earnings from Continuing Operations Before Income Taxes or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA from Continuing Operations should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, or as an alternative measure of liquidity.

The Company's financial results as reported under GAAP, include the effects of stock warrants granted to a customer as a lease incentive. The value of the stock warrants is recorded as a customer lease incentive asset and is amortized against revenue over the term of the related aircraft leases. The stock warrant obligation is reflected as a liability and revalued to fair value at the end of each reporting period. The stock warrant liability was revalued as of June 30, 2017, with the change in fair value recorded to earnings. Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations and Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations, non-GAAP measures presented below, reflect the Company's results after removing the lease incentive amortization and the warrant revaluation effects during the periods presented.

Management presents Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations to remove the effects in the income statement of a large grant of stock warrants, including their related adjustment to fair value which is recorded at the end of each quarter. Under U.S. GAAP, these warrants are reflected as a liability and unrealized warrant gains are typically removed from diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) calculations while unrealized warrant losses are not removed because they are dilutive to EPS. As a result, the Company’s EPS, as calculated under U.S. GAAP, can vary significantly among periods due to unrealized mark-to-market losses which are not directly related to the Company's operating performance. Accordingly, the non-GAAP calculation of EPS provides additional information to investors regarding the earnings per share without the volatility otherwise caused by the stock warrants.

Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations equals Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations divided by Adjusted Shares. Adjusted Shares include warrants which correspond to the revaluation adjustment that were not already included in weighted average shares used for GAAP. Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations is defined as Earnings from Continuing Operations excluding the amortization of the lease incentive asset, net of taxes, and excluding the warrant revaluation loss or gain, net of taxes. Management uses Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations and Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations to compare the performance of its operating results among periods.

Adjusted Earnings from Continuing Operations, Adjusted Shares and Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as alternatives to Earnings from Continuing Operations, Weighted Average Shares - diluted or Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP.
