World Fuel Services Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

<< Back

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2017-- World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE: INT) today reported third quarter 2017 net loss of $38.5 million or $0.57 diluted loss per share, which includes a non-cash accounting charge of $76.9 million relating to a U.S. deferred tax valuation allowance (“DTA”). Excluding the DTA and certain other one-time items, adjusted third quarter net income was $40.9 million or $0.60 adjusted diluted earnings per share. In the third quarter of 2016, net income as adjusted for one-time items was $45.1 million or $0.65 adjusted diluted earnings per share. Non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2017, excluding share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other one-time items were $52.0 million and $0.77, respectively, compared to $57.2 million and $0.82 in 2016.

“In the third quarter, we were pleased with our performance despite the challenges brought by an unprecedented series of hurricanes,” stated Michael J. Kasbar, chairman and chief executive officer of World Fuel Services Corporation. “We have a solid pipeline of initiatives to accelerate organic growth and remain committed to our long-term strategy of leveraging our comprehensive energy management, omni-channel fulfillment and payments platform.”

The company’s aviation segment generated gross profit of $123.9 million, an increase of $12.3 million or 11.0% year-over-year. The company’s marine segment generated gross profit of $30.5 million, a decrease of $6.8 million or 18.2% year-over-year. The company’s land segment generated gross profit of $85.5 million, a decrease of $2.3 million or 2.6% year-over-year.

“Despite operational disruptions during the quarter, our strategically diversified business model delivered a solid financial result,” said Ira M. Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “We repurchased an additional $30 million of our common stock during the quarter, taking year-to-date repurchases to $62 million, delivering on our commitment to return further value to our shareholders.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including Non-GAAP and adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 (collectively, the “2017 Non-GAAP Measures”). The 2017 Non-GAAP Measures exclude costs associated with share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related charges, valuation allowance against the net U.S. deferred tax assets, severance and other restructuring-related costs primarily because we do not believe they are reflective of the Company’s core operating results. We believe the exclusion of share-based compensation from operating expenses is useful given the variation in expense that can result from changes in the fair value of our common stock, the effect of which is unrelated to the operational conditions that give rise to variations in the components of our operating costs. Also, we believe the exclusion of the amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related charges, valuation allowance against the net U.S. deferred tax assets, severance and other restructuring-related costs are useful for purposes of evaluating operating performance of our core operating results and comparing them period over period. We believe that the 2017 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 2017 Non-GAAP Measures may not be comparable to the presentation of such metrics by other companies. Non-GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing non-GAAP net income and adjusted net income, respectively, 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 2017 Non-GAAP Measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
