World Fuel Services Corporation Reports First Quarter Results

--Generated Operating Cash Flow of $110 Million in the First Quarter--

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 first quarter net income of $48.7 million or $0.68 diluted earnings per share compared to $46.4 million or $0.65 diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter, which exclude share-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets, were $55.0 million and $0.77, respectively, compared to $52.9 million and $0.74 in 2012.


"We are pleased with our overall performance in the first quarter despite continuous headwinds we face in our marine segment," stated Michael J. Kasbar, president and chief executive officer of World Fuel Services Corporation. "We continue to perform well in this uncertain global environment, while pursuing additional growth opportunities."

The company's aviation segment generated gross profit of $77.0 million, an increase of $700 thousand or 1% sequentially, and an increase of $12.1 million or 19% year-over-year. The company's marine segment generated gross profit of $41.7 million, a decrease of $5.6 million or 12% sequentially and $13.4 million or 24% year-over-year. The company's land segment posted gross profit of $63.7 million, an increase of $23.9 million or 60% sequentially and $26.5 million or 71% year-over-year.

"We generated $110 million in operating cash flow in the first quarter, our second consecutive quarter of positive operating cash flow, further strengthening our financial profile," said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Our solid cash flow performance combined with our continued focus on driving operating efficiencies should enhance profitability, while providing greater liquidity to support organic growth and strategic investment opportunities."

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 and amortization of acquired intangible, 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.

Information Relating to Forward-Looking Statements

With the exception of historical information in this news release, this document includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding our expectations of opportunities for growth and strategic investments, our ability to operate in an uncertain global environment, as well as our expectation about our profitability and liquidity. 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 21, 2013. 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 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.
