World Fuel Services Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE: INT)

Third-Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • GAAP net income of $38.2 million or $0.56 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income of $42.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted share
  • Total of 5.0 billion gallons of fuel sold
  • Total gross profit of $266.7 million, up 11% year-over-year
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $104.3 million, up 23% year-over-year

“Our third quarter results were highlighted by record profitability in our aviation segment as well as better than expected performance in our marine segment,” stated Michael J. Kasbar, chairman and chief executive officer of World Fuel Services Corporation. “We continue to focus on operating efficiencies, portfolio refinement and organic growth initiatives, which has contributed to improved operating performance in 2018 and should position us well for growth in 2019 and beyond.”

For the quarter, our aviation segment generated gross profit of $140.7 million, an increase of 14% year-over-year, primarily driven by strong growth in international fuel sales and continued strength in government-related activity. Our marine segment generated gross profit of $43.0 million, an increase of 41% year-over-year, primarily due to improved economics in our core operations as well as seasonal activities. Our land segment generated gross profit of $83.0 million, down 3% year-over-year, driven by weakness in the United Kingdom and Brazil, which was partially offset by growth in our Kinect global energy management and Multi Service payment solutions businesses.

“Commitment to our continued cost management initiatives contributed to record adjusted EBITDA generation during the third quarter, resulting in a 23% increase compared to last year,” said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “Year-to-date our improvement in operating leverage is already tracking ahead of our expectations for a 250 basis point improvement for the full year.”

Liquidity and Capital

Cash flow used in operating activities was $87.5 million for the third quarter of 2018. This reflects the impact of a change in classification of $115.6 million of cash proceeds received from the beneficial interest of receivables sold from cash flow from operating activities to cash flow from investing activities due to an accounting standard adopted in the beginning of 2018. A continued focus on working capital management contributed to a reduction of our net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio to 1.8x at September 30, 2018 from 1.9x at June 30, 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), and net debt (collectively, the “Non-GAAP Measures”). The Non-GAAP measures exclude acquisition-related charges and severance and restructuring charges primarily because we do not believe they are reflective of the Company’s core operating results. We believe that the Non-GAAP 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 the Non-GAAP Measures 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 Services 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 restricted stock units 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 in this press release and on our website.

Information Relating to Forward-Looking Statements

This release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding our beliefs and expectations with respect to our focus on operating efficiencies, portfolio refinement and organic growth initiatives and its impact on operating performance in 2018 and 2019, as well as our expectations about improvements to our operating leverage. These forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by cautionary statements and risk factor disclosures contained in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings, including the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Actual results may differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: our ability to effectively leverage technology and operating systems and realize the anticipated benefits, our ability to successfully execute and achieve efficiencies and other benefits related to our transformation initiatives, our ability to achieve the expected level of benefit from our restructuring activities and cost reduction initiatives, unanticipated tax liabilities or adverse results of tax audits, assessments, or disputes, our ability to successfully implement our growth strategy, our ability to effectively integrate acquired businesses and recognize the anticipated benefits, risks related to the complexity of U.S. Tax Reform and our ability to accurately predict its impact on our returns and future earnings, our ability to capitalize on new market opportunities and changes in supply and other market dynamics in the regions where we operate, potential liabilities and the extent of any insurance coverage, the outcome of pending litigation and other proceedings, the impact of quarterly fluctuations in results, particularly as a result of seasonality, the creditworthiness of our customers and counterparties and our ability to collect accounts receivable, fluctuations in world oil prices or foreign currency, changes in political, economic, regulatory, or environmental conditions, adverse conditions in the markets or industries in which we or our customers and suppliers operate, our failure to effectively hedge certain financial risks associated with the use of derivatives, non-performance by counterparties or customers on derivatives contracts, loss of, or reduced sales, to a significant government customer, uninsured losses, the impact of natural disasters, adverse results in legal disputes, our ability to retain and attract senior management and other key employees and other risks detailed from time to time in our SEC filings. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors or to assess the impact of such risks on our business. Accordingly, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, changes in expectations, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law.
