World Fuel Services Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Earnings

Generated Operating Cash Flow of $98 Million in the Fourth Quarter and $146 Million for the Full Year

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- World Fuel Services Corporation (NYS: INT) , a leading global fuel logistics company, principally engaged in the marketing, sale and distribution of aviation, marine and land fuel products and related services, today reported full year net income of $189.3 million or $2.64 diluted earnings per share. Excluding one-time expenses of $4.5 million related to the acquisition of select assets of Multi Service Corporation ("Multi Service"), net income was $192.3 million or $2.68 diluted earnings per share. This compares to $194.0 million or $2.71 diluted earnings per share for the same period in 2011. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the full year, excluding share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and expenses related to the Multi Service acquisition, were $215.9 million and $3.01, respectively, compared to $221.1 million and $3.09 in 2011.


For the fourth quarter, net income was $42.8 million or $0.60 diluted earnings per share. Excluding expenses related to the Multi Service acquisition, net income was $45.8 million or $0.64 diluted earnings per share. This compares to $50.1 million or $0.70 diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter, excluding share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and expenses related to the Multi Service acquisition, were $52.3 million and $0.73, respectively, compared to $57.4 million and $0.81 in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"In 2012, despite a stagnant market, we posted record revenue, gross profit, and volume while completing two strategic acquisitions," stated Michael J. Kasbar, president and chief executive officer of World Fuel Services Corporation. "Multi Service enhances our comprehensive solutions offering and opens up new opportunities for growth and value creation."

For the full year, the company's marine segment generated gross profit of $208.0 million, an increase of approximately $12.9 million or 7 percent year-over-year. The company's aviation segment generated gross profit of $294.6 million, a decrease of $11.5 million or 4 percent year-over-year. The company's land segment posted gross profit of $170.8 million, an increase of $37.0 million or 28 percent year-over-year.

"The two accretive and strategic acquisitions we completed this past year will further expand the value proposition we offer to our customers and suppliers and provide new avenues for growth," said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Our operating cash flow contributed to our very strong and liquid balance sheet enabling us to further fuel organic growth as well as make additional strategic acquisitions."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). This information includes non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs associated with share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and one-time expenses related to the acquisition of select assets of Multi Service, primarily because we do not believe they are reflective of the company's core operating results. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered in conjunction with our financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, are useful for investors to evaluate our core operating results and trends.

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 non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to the presentation of such metrics by other companies. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.

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 filings, including the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. Actual results may differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: our ability to effectively integrate and derive benefits from acquired businesses, our ability to capitalize on new market opportunities, the impact of quarterly fluctuations in results, 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, unanticipated tax liabilities, our ability to retain and attract senior management and other key employees and other risks detailed from time to time in the company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
