HEICO CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – UNAUDITED

1.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of HEICO Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively, “HEICO,” or the “Company”) have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Therefore, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all information and footnotes normally included in annual consolidated financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2021. The October 31, 2021 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting principally of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, statements of comprehensive income, statements of shareholders' equity and statements of cash flows for such interim periods presented. The results of operations for the nine months ended July 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire fiscal year.

The Company has two operating segments: the Flight Support Group (“FSG”), consisting of HEICO Aerospace Holdings Corp. and HEICO Flight Support Corp. ("HFSC") and their respective subsidiaries; and the Electronic Technologies Group (“ETG”), consisting of HEICO Electronic Technologies Corp. (“HEICO Electronic”) and its subsidiaries.

The Company's results of operations in fiscal 2022 continue to reflect the adverse impact from the COVID-19 global pandemic (the “Pandemic”), including its impact on the Company’s supply chain. Despite the aforementioned, the Company experienced continued improvement in operating results in the first nine months and third quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to the first nine months and third quarter of fiscal 2021 principally reflecting improved demand for its commercial aerospace products. The Flight Support Group has reported eight consecutive quarters of improvement in net sales and operating income resulting from signs of commercial air travel recovery in certain domestic travel markets, moderated by a slower recovery in international travel markets.

New Accounting Pronouncement

    In October 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2021-08, "Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers," which requires contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination to be recognized and measured by the acquirer on the acquisition date in accordance with ASC 606, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers," as if the acquirer had originated the contracts. ASU 2021-08 is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, or in fiscal 2024 for HEICO. Early adoption is permitted and ASU 2021-08 shall be applied on a prospective basis to business combinations that occur on or after the adoption date. The Company is currently evaluating the effect, if any, the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.


2.     ACQUISITIONS

In July 2022, the Company, through a subsidiary of HFSC, acquired 96% of the stock of Accurate Metal Machining, Inc. ("Accurate"). Accurate is a manufacturer of high-reliability components and assemblies. The remaining 4% interest continues to be owned by certain members of Accurate’s management team (see Note 3, Selected Financial Statement Information - Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests, for additional information). The total consideration includes an accrual of $13.1 million as of the acquisition date representing the estimated fair value of contingent consideration the Company may be obligated to pay should Accurate meet certain earnings objectives following the acquisition. See Note 8, Fair Value Measurements, for additional information regarding the Company’s contingent consideration obligation. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid in cash, principally using proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility.

In March 2022, the Company, through a subsidiary of HFSC, acquired 74% of the membership interests of Pioneer Industries, LLC ("Pioneer"). Pioneer is a specialty distributor of spares for military aviation, marine, and ground platforms. The remaining 26% interest continues to be owned by certain members of Pioneer's management team (see Note 3, Selected Financial Statement Information - Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests, for additional information). The total consideration includes an accrual of $9.8 million as of the acquisition date representing the estimated fair value of contingent consideration the Company may be obligated to pay should Pioneer meet a certain earnings objective following the acquisition. See Note 8, Fair Value Measurements, for additional information regarding the Company’s contingent consideration obligation. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid in cash, principally using proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility.

In March 2022, the Company, through a subsidiary of HEICO Electronic, acquired 100% of the stock of Flight Microwave Corporation ("Flight Microwave"). Flight Microwave is a designer and manufacturer of custom high power filters and filter assemblies used in space and




9


defense applications. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid in cash using cash provided by operating activities.

The individual purchase price of Accurate, Pioneer and Flight Microwave is not material or significant to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements. The allocation of the total consideration for the fiscal 2022 acquisitions to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities and noncontrolling interests assumed is preliminary until the Company obtains final information regarding their fair values. However, the Company does not expect any adjustment to such allocations to be material to the Company's consolidated financial statements. The operating results of the fiscal 2022 acquisitions were included in the Company’s results of operations as of each effective acquisition date. The amount of net sales and earnings of the fiscal 2022 acquisitions included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2022 is not material.

Had the fiscal 2022 acquisitions occurred as of November 1, 2020, net sales and net income from consolidated operations on a pro forma basis for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2022 would not have been materially different than the reported amounts, and net sales on a pro forma basis for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2021 would have been $1,448.0 million and $504.1 million, respectively, and net income from consolidated operations on a pro forma basis for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2021 would have been $248.5 million and $88.1 million, respectively. Had the fiscal 2022 acquisitions occurred as of November 1, 2020, net income attributable to HEICO, and basic and diluted net income per share attributable to HEICO shareholders on a pro forma basis for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021 would not have been materially different than the reported amounts. The pro forma financial information is presented for comparative purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that actually would have been achieved if the acquisitions had taken place as of November 1, 2020. The unaudited pro forma financial information includes adjustments to historical amounts such as additional amortization expense related to the intangible assets acquired and increased interest expense associated with borrowings to finance the acquisitions.

On July 26, 2022, the Company, through HEICO Electronic, entered into a Put Option Agreement with IK Partners and certain other parties thereto (collectively, the “Sellers”). Pursuant to the Put Option Agreement and a Stock Purchase Agreement attached to the Put Option Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement” and, together with the Put Option Agreement, the “Acquisition Agreements”), the Company has committed to acquire Exxelia International (“Exxelia”) from an affiliate of IK Partners and the Sellers for €453 million, or approximately $463.1 million as of July 31, 2022, in cash to be paid at closing plus the assumption of approximately €14 million, or approximately $14.3 million as of July 31, 2022, of liabilities pursuant to the terms, and subject to the conditions, set forth in the Acquisition Agreements. On August 5, 2022, pursuant to the exercise of the Put Option Agreement, the Company entered into the Purchase Agreement to purchase Exxelia. Exxelia designs, manufactures and sells high-reliability (“Hi-Rel”), complex, passive electronic components and rotary joint assemblies for mostly aerospace and defense applications, in addition to other high-end applications, such as medical and energy uses, including emerging “clean energy” and electrification applications.




10


Exxelia's management and team members are expected to continue to own a minority interest of around 5% of the business. The purchase price of this acquisition is expected to be paid in cash, principally using proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility. The closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, obtaining a required foreign antitrust clearance and foreign investment authorizations.

Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests

The holders of equity interests in certain of the Company's subsidiaries have rights ("Put Rights") that may be exercised on varying dates causing the Company to purchase their equity interests through fiscal 2032. The Put Rights, all of which relate either to common shares or membership interests in limited liability companies, provide that the cash consideration to be paid for their equity interests (the "Redemption Amount") be at fair value or a formula that management intended to reasonably approximate fair value based solely on a multiple of future earnings over a measurement period. Management's estimate of the aggregate Redemption Amount of all Put Rights that the Company could be required to pay is as follows (in thousands):
July 31, 2022 October 31, 2021
Redeemable at fair value $274,854  $217,416 
Redeemable based on a multiple of future earnings 22,140  35,171 
Redeemable noncontrolling interests $296,994  $252,587 

As discussed in Note 2, Acquisitions, the Company, through a subsidiary of HFSC, acquired 96% of the stock of Accurate in July 2022. As part of the operating agreement, the noncontrolling interest holders have the right to cause the Company to purchase their membership interest over a four-year period beginning in fiscal 2029, or sooner under certain conditions, and the Company has the right to purchase the same membership interest over the same period.

As discussed in Note 2, Acquisitions, the Company, through a subsidiary of HFSC, acquired 74% of the membership interests of Pioneer in March 2022. As part of the operating agreement, the noncontrolling interest holders have the right to cause the Company to purchase their membership interest over a four-year period beginning in fiscal 2029, or sooner under certain conditions, and the Company has the right to purchase the same membership interest over the same period.

During fiscal 2022, the holder of a 19.9% noncontrolling equity interest in a subsidiary of the FSG that was acquired in fiscal 2017 exercised its option to cause the Company to purchase one-half of the noncontrolling interest in fiscal 2022 and the remaining one-half in fiscal 2024. Accordingly, the Company acquired an additional 9.95% equity interest in May 2022, which increased the Company's ownership interest in the subsidiary to 90.05%.




12


During fiscal 2022, the Company sold a 3% equity interest in a subsidiary of the FSG that was acquired in fiscal 2015, which decreased the Company's ownership interest in the subsidiary to 82%. As part of the operating agreement, the noncontrolling interest holder has the right to cause the Company to purchase one-fifth of its equity interest beginning in fiscal 2028, or sooner under certain conditions, and each remaining one-fifth equity interest following the first anniversary of the most recent put option exercise. The Company has the right to purchase the same equity interest over the same period.

During fiscal 2022, the Company sold 10% of the membership interests of a subsidiary of the FSG that was acquired in fiscal 2018, which decreased the Company's ownership interest in the subsidiary to 90%. As part of the operating agreement, the noncontrolling interest holder has the right to cause the Company to purchase its membership interest over a four-year period beginning in fiscal 2027, or sooner under certain conditions, and the Company has the right to purchase the same membership interest over the same period.

assumed. Foreign currency translation adjustments are included in other comprehensive income (loss) in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. The adjustments to goodwill principally reflect a measurement period adjustment of the write-up to fair value of property, plant and equipment associated with a fiscal 2021 acquisition. The Company estimates that $108 million of the goodwill acquired in fiscal 2022 will be deductible for income tax purposes.

Amortization expense related to intangible assets for the three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021 was $15.2 million. Amortization expense related to intangible assets for the remainder of fiscal 2022 is estimated to be $15.5 million. Amortization expense for each of the next five fiscal years and thereafter is estimated to be $58.3 million in fiscal 2023, $53.3 million in fiscal 2024, $48.9 million in fiscal 2025, $44.4 million in fiscal 2026, $41.5 million in fiscal 2027, and $180.3 million thereafter.


5.     LONG-TERM DEBT

    Long-term debt consists of the following (in thousands):
July 31, 2022 October 31, 2021
Borrowings under revolving credit facility $230,000  $225,000 
Finance leases and notes payable 15,757  11,498

$244,023  $234,983 





14


The Company's borrowings under its revolving credit facility mature in fiscal 2025 as discussed further below. As of July 31, 2022 and October 31, 2021, the weighted average interest rate on borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility was 3.3% and 1.1%, respectively. The revolving credit facility contains both financial and non-financial covenants. As of July 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.

On April 7, 2022, the Company entered into an amendment to extend the maturity date of its Revolving Credit Facility Agreement ("Credit Facility") by one year to November 2024 and to replace the Eurocurrency Rate with Adjusted Term SOFR as an election in which borrowings under the Credit Facility accrue interest, as such capitalized terms are defined in the Credit Facility.


6.     REVENUE
    
Contract Balances

    Contract assets (unbilled receivables) represent revenue recognized on contracts using an over-time recognition model in excess of amounts invoiced to the customer. Contract liabilities (deferred revenue) represent customer advances and billings in excess of revenue recognized and are included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.    

    Changes in the Company’s contract assets and liabilities for the nine months ended July 31, 2022 are as follows (in thousands):
July 31, 2022 October 31, 2021 Change
Contract assets $86,534  $80,073  $6,461 
Contract liabilities 58,366 32,738  25,628 
Net contract assets $28,168  $47,335  ($19,167)

The increase in the Company's contract liabilities during the first nine months of fiscal 2022 principally reflects the receipt of advance deposits on certain customer contracts at both the ETG and FSG.

The amount of revenue that the Company recognized during the nine and three months ended July 31, 2022 that was included in contract liabilities as of the beginning of fiscal 2022 was $22.7 million and $3.1 million, respectively.
    
Remaining Performance Obligations

As of July 31, 2022, the Company had $451.3 million of remaining performance obligations associated with contracts with an original duration of greater than one year pertaining to the majority of the products offered by the ETG as well as certain products of the FSG's specialty products product line. The Company will recognize net sales as these obligations are




15


satisfied. The Company expects to recognize $123.8 million of this amount during the remainder of fiscal 2022 and $327.5 million thereafter, of which the majority is expected to occur in fiscal 2023.

7.     INCOME TAXES

The Company's effective tax rate was 19.4% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, as compared to 13.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in the Company's effective tax rate principally reflects a 4.9% unfavorable impact from tax-exempt unrealized losses in the cash surrender values of life insurance policies related to the HEICO Leadership Compensation Plan ("the LCP") recognized in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 as compared to the tax-exempt unrealized gains recognized on such policies in the first nine months of fiscal 2021.

The Company's effective tax rate was 27.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 15.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in the Company's effective tax rate principally reflects a 5.3% unfavorable impact from tax-exempt unrealized losses in the




17


cash surrender values of life insurance policies related to the LCP recognized in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to the tax-exempt unrealized gains recognized on such policies in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase also reflects a 2.6% unfavorable impact as the third quarter of fiscal 2021 benefited from a larger income tax credit due to higher qualifying R&D expenditures.

The Company maintains the HEICO Corporation Leadership Compensation Plan (the "LCP"), which is a non-qualified deferred compensation plan. The assets of the LCP principally represent cash surrender values of life insurance policies, which derive their fair values from investments in mutual funds that are managed by an insurance company, and are classified within Level 2 and valued using a market approach. Certain other assets of the LCP represent investments in money market funds that are classified within Level 1. The assets of the LCP are




18


held within an irrevocable trust and classified within other assets in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The related liabilities of the LCP are included within other long-term liabilities and accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and have an aggregate value of $218.2 million as of July 31, 2022 and $244.3 million as of October 31, 2021.

As part of the agreement to acquire 96% of the stock of a subsidiary by the FSG in fiscal 2022, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to $27.4 million in fiscal 2027 based on the earnings of the acquired entity during fiscal years 2025 and 2026 provided the entity meets certain earnings objectives during each of fiscal years 2022 to 2024. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $13.1 million.

As part of the agreement to acquire 74% of the membership interests of a subsidiary by the FSG in fiscal 2022, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of $14.1 million in fiscal 2027 should the acquired entity meet a certain earnings objective during the five-year period following the acquisition. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $9.7 million.

As part of the agreement to acquire 89% of the membership interests of a subsidiary by the FSG in fiscal 2021, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of $8.9 million as early as in fiscal 2024 should the acquired entity meet a certain earnings objective during the three-year period following the acquisition. Additionally, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to $17.8 million as early as in fiscal 2026 should the acquired entity meet a certain earnings objective during the three-year period following the second anniversary of the acquisition. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $17.4 million.

As part of the agreement to acquire 89.99% of the equity interests of a subsidiary by the ETG in fiscal 2020, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to CAD $27.0 million, or $21.1 million, in fiscal 2025 should the acquired entity meet certain earnings objectives during fiscal 2023 and 2024. However, should the acquired entity achieve a certain earnings objective over any two consecutive fiscal years beginning in fiscal 2021 and ending in fiscal 2023, half of the contingent consideration obligation, or CAD $13.5 million, would be payable in the following year. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was CAD $18.5 million, or $14.4 million, of which $10.4 million was included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

As part of the agreement to acquire a subsidiary by the ETG in fiscal 2020, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to $35.0 million in fiscal 2025 based on the earnings of the acquired entity during calendar years 2023 and 2024 provided the entity meets certain earnings objectives during each of calendar years 2021 to 2024. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $7.4 million as compared to $13.3 million as of October 31, 2021. The decrease in the fair value of the contingent consideration is principally attributable to an increased probability that the required earnings




19


objective for each of calendar years 2022 to 2024 is not met as forecasted sales and earnings growth is delayed reflecting the lower demand that the subsidiary is currently experiencing for its defense products. The obligation to pay any contingent consideration would be payable by a consolidated subsidiary of HEICO that is 75% owned by HEICO Electronic.

As part of the agreement to acquire a subsidiary by the ETG in fiscal 2017, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of $20.0 million in fiscal 2023 should the acquired entity meet a certain earnings objective during the first six years following the acquisition. As of July 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $18.6 million.

The carrying amounts of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, trade accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate fair value as of July 31, 2022 due to the relatively short maturity of the respective instruments. The carrying amount of long-term debt approximates fair value due to its variable interest rates.

Litigation

On April 20, 2021, an indirect subsidiary of HFSC, which was acquired in June 2020, received a grand jury subpoena from the United States District Court for the Southern District of California requiring the production of documents for the time period December 1, 2017 through February 4, 2019 related to the subsidiary's employment of a certain individual and its performance of work on certain Navy vessels during that time period. The Company is cooperating with the investigation. The Company has completed its production of documents responsive to the subpoena, although the Company has a continuing obligation to produce such documents should any be located. At this early stage in the investigation, the Company cannot predict the outcome of the investigation or when the investigation will ultimately be resolved; nor can the Company reasonably estimate the possible range of loss or impact to its business, if any, that may result from this matter.





24


With the exception of the matter noted above, the Company is involved in various legal actions arising in the normal course of business. Based upon the Company’s and its legal counsel’s evaluations of any claims or assessments, management is of the opinion that the outcome of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows.


12.     SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

In August 2022, the Company, through a subsidiary of HEICO Electronic, acquired 100% of the stock of Charter Engineering, Inc. ("Charter"). Charter designs and manufactures a complete line of RF and Microwave coaxial switches for the aerospace, defense, commercial, Automated Test Equipment ("ATE"), and instrumentation markets. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid in cash using cash provided by operating activities and is not material or significant to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

In August 2022, the Company acquired 100% of the stock of Sensor Systems, Inc. ("Sensor"). Sensor designs and manufactures airborne antennas for commercial and military applications. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid for with a proportional combination of cash using proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility and 576,338 shares of HEICO Class A Common Stock. The purchase price is not material or significant to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Item 2.    MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

This discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included herein. The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates if different assumptions were used or different events ultimately transpire.

Our critical accounting policies, which require management to make judgments about matters that are inherently uncertain, are described in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” under the heading “Critical Accounting Policies” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2021. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies during the nine months ended July 31, 2022.

Our business is comprised of two operating segments: the Flight Support Group (“FSG”), consisting of HEICO Aerospace Holdings Corp. and HEICO Flight Support Corp. and their respective subsidiaries; and the Electronic Technologies Group (“ETG”), consisting of HEICO Electronic Technologies Corp. and its subsidiaries.

Our results of operations in fiscal 2022 continue to reflect the adverse impact from the COVID-19 global pandemic (the “Pandemic”), including its impact on our supply chain. Despite the aforementioned, we experienced continued improvement in operating results in the first nine months and third quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to the first nine months and third quarter of fiscal 2021 principally reflecting improved demand for our commercial aerospace products. The Flight Support Group has reported eight consecutive quarters of improvement in net sales and operating income resulting from signs of commercial air travel recovery in certain domestic travel markets, moderated by a slower recovery in international travel markets.

Additionally, our results of operations for the nine and three months ended July 31, 2022 have been affected by the fiscal 2021 acquisitions as further detailed in Note 2, Acquisitions, of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2021 and the fiscal 2022 acquisitions as further detailed in Note 2, Acquisitions, of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of this quarterly report.

Comparison of First Nine Months of Fiscal 2022 to First Nine Months of Fiscal 2021

Net Sales

Our consolidated net sales in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 increased by 18% to a record $1,598.7 million, up from net sales of $1,356.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated net sales principally reflects an increase of $242.5 million (a 36% increase) to $909.3 million in net sales within the FSG, partially offset by a slight decrease of $2.3 million to $703.9 million in net sales within the ETG. The net sales increase in the FSG reflects strong organic growth of 26% as well as net sales of $71.3 million contributed by our fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions. The FSG's organic growth reflects increased demand for the majority of our commercial aerospace products and services resulting from continued recovery in global commercial air travel as compared to the prior year. As such, organic net sales increased by $94.9 million, $41.2 million and $35.2 million within our aftermarket replacement parts, repair and overhaul parts and services, and specialty products product lines, respectively. The net sales decrease in the ETG principally reflects a 2% decrease in organic net sales, partially offset by $13.9 million contributed by our fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions. The ETG's organic net sales decline is mainly attributable to decreased demand for our defense products resulting in a net sales decrease of $56.0 million, partially offset by increased demand for our other electronics, medical, space, telecommunications and aerospace products resulting in net sales increases of $14.4 million, $13.9 million, $7.6 million, $3.5 million and $2.5 million respectively. Although sales price changes were not a significant contributing factor to the change in net sales of the FSG and ETG in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, recent cost inflation and potential supply chain disruptions may lead to higher sales prices during the remainder of fiscal 2022.

Gross Profit and Operating Expenses

Our consolidated gross profit margin increased to 38.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from 38.6% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, principally reflecting a 3.0% improvement in the FSG's gross profit margin, partially offset by a .6% decrease in the ETG's gross profit margin. The increase in the FSG's gross profit margin principally reflects the previously mentioned higher net sales across all product lines. The reduction in the ETG's gross profit margin principally reflects the decrease in net sales of defense products. Total new product research and development expenses included within our consolidated cost of sales were $55.8 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from $52.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021.

Our consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $272.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, as compared to $245.1 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated SG&A expenses principally reflects costs incurred to support the previously mentioned net sales growth resulting in increases of $10.4 million and $5.4 million in selling expenses and general and administrative expenses, respectively. Additionally, the increase in consolidated SG&A expenses reflects $11.2 million attributable to our fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions.




28


Our consolidated SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased to 17.0% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, down from 18.1% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The decrease in consolidated SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales principally reflects a .4% impact from lower intangible asset amortization expense and a .4% favorable impact from changes in the estimated fair value of accrued contingent consideration, as well as efficiencies realized from the higher net sales.

Operating Income

Our consolidated operating income increased by 26% to a record $350.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from $277.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated operating income principally reflects an $86.0 million increase (an 83% increase) to a record $189.3 million in operating income of the FSG, partially offset by a $10.8 million decrease (a 5% decrease) to $189.6 million in operating income of the ETG. The increase in operating income of the FSG principally reflects the previously mentioned net sales growth, improved gross profit margin and efficiencies realized from the higher net sales volume. The decrease in operating income of the ETG principally reflects a lower level of efficiencies resulting from the net sales decrease and the previously mentioned lower gross profit margin, partially offset by a favorable impact from changes in the estimated fair value of accrued contingent consideration. Further, the increase in consolidated operating income was partially offset by $4.5 million of higher corporate expenses mainly attributable to an increase in performance-based compensation expense and the suspension of corporate salary reductions as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

Our consolidated operating income as a percentage of net sales increased to 21.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from 20.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase principally reflects an increase in the FSG’s operating income as a percentage of net sales to 20.8% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from 15.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, partially offset by a decrease in the ETG's operating income as a percentage of net sales to 26.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, as compared to 28.4% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in the FSG’s operating income as a percentage of net sales principally reflects the previously mentioned improved gross profit margin, as well as a 2.4% impact from a decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales mainly reflecting the previously mentioned efficiencies. The decrease in the ETG's operating income as a percentage of net sales principally reflects a .9% impact from an increase in SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales mainly from the previously mentioned lower level of efficiencies, partially offset by the changes in the estimated fair value of accrued contingent consideration; and, from the previously mentioned lower gross profit margin.

Interest Expense

Interest expense decreased to $3.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, down from $6.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The decrease was principally due to a lower weighted average balance of borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility.





29


Other Income

Other income in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 and 2021 was not material.

Income Tax Expense

Our effective tax rate was 19.4% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, as compared to 13.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in our effective tax rate principally reflects a 4.9% unfavorable impact from tax-exempt unrealized losses in the cash surrender values of life insurance policies related to the HEICO Leadership Compensation Plan ("the LCP") recognized in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 as compared to the tax-exempt unrealized gains recognized on such policies in the first nine months of fiscal 2021.

Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interests
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests relates to the 20% noncontrolling interest held by Lufthansa Technik AG in HEICO Aerospace Holdings Corp. and the noncontrolling interests held by others in certain subsidiaries of the FSG and ETG. Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was $26.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, as compared to $18.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The increase in net income attributable to noncontrolling interests principally reflects improved operating results of certain subsidiaries of the FSG in which noncontrolling interests are held, inclusive of fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions.

Net Income Attributable to HEICO

Net income attributable to HEICO increased by 17% to a record $254.5 million, or $1.85 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2022, up from $218.2 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2021 principally reflecting the previously mentioned higher consolidated operating income, partially offset by the increase in the effective tax rate.




















30


Comparison of Third Quarter of Fiscal 2022 to Third Quarter of Fiscal 2021

Net Sales

Our consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 increased by 21% to a record $569.5 million, up from net sales of $471.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated net sales principally reflects an increase of $93.1 million (a 39% increase) to a record $330.3 million in net sales within the FSG and an increase of $4.7 million (a 2% increase) to $244.2 million in net sales within the ETG. The net sales increase in the FSG reflects strong organic growth of 25% as well as net sales of $35.0 million contributed by our fiscal 2022 and 2021 acquisitions. The FSG's organic growth reflects increased demand for the majority of our commercial aerospace products and services resulting from continued recovery in global commercial air travel as compared to the prior year. As such, organic net sales increased by $32.1 million, $15.3 million and $10.7 million within our aftermarket replacement parts, specialty products, and repair and overhaul parts and services product lines, respectively. The net sales increase in the ETG principally reflects $3.4 million contributed by our fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions and organic growth of 1%. The ETG's organic growth is mainly attributable to increased demand for our other electronics, space, and medical products resulting in net sales increases of $9.5 million, $5.5 million and $4.6 million, respectively, partially offset by decreased demand for our defense products resulting in a net sales decrease of $19.3 million. Although sales price changes were not a significant contributing factor to the change in net sales of the FSG and ETG in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, recent cost inflation and potential supply chain disruptions may lead to higher sales prices during the remainder of fiscal 2022.

Gross Profit and Operating Expenses

Our consolidated gross profit margin was 38.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 39.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, principally reflecting a .5% decrease in the ETG's gross profit margin, partially offset by a 1.4% improvement in the FSG's gross profit margin. The reduction in the ETG's gross profit margin principally reflects the decrease in net sales of defense products. The increase in the FSG's gross profit margin principally reflects the previously mentioned higher net sales across all product lines. Total new product research and development expenses included within our consolidated cost of sales were $18.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, up from $18.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.

Our consolidated SG&A expenses were $92.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $83.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated SG&A expenses principally reflects $4.9 million attributable to our fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions and an increase of $4.3 million in selling expenses to support the previously mentioned net sales growth, partially offset by a $.9 million decrease in general and administrative expenses.

Our consolidated SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased to 16.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, down from 17.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The decrease in consolidated SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales principally reflects efficiencies




31


realized from the higher net sales, as well as a .6% favorable impact from changes in the estimated fair value of accrued contingent consideration and a .4% impact from lower intangible asset amortization expense.

Operating Income

Our consolidated operating income increased by 28% to a record $128.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, up from $100.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in consolidated operating income principally reflects a $28.7 million increase (a 68% increase) to a record $70.8 million in operating income of the FSG, partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease (a 1% decrease) to $68.0 million in operating income of the ETG. The increase in operating income of the FSG principally reflects the previously mentioned net sales growth, improved gross profit margin, and efficiencies realized from the higher net sales volume. The decrease in operating income of the ETG principally reflects the previously mentioned lower gross profit margin.

Our consolidated operating income as a percentage of net sales increased to 22.6% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, up from 21.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase principally reflects an increase in the FSG’s operating income as a percentage of net sales to 21.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, up from 17.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, partially offset by a decrease in the ETG's operating income as a percentage of net sales to 27.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 28.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in the FSG’s operating income as a percentage of net sales principally reflects a 2.3% impact from a decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales mainly reflecting the previously mentioned efficiencies, as well as the improved gross profit margin. The decrease in the ETG's operating income as a percentage of net sales principally reflects the previously mentioned lower gross profit margin and a .4% impact from an increase in SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales inclusive of an increase in performance-based compensation expense and the previously mentioned changes in the estimated fair value of accrued contingent consideration.

Interest Expense

Interest expense decreased to $1.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, down from $1.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The decrease was principally due to a lower weighted average balance of borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility, partially offset by a higher weighted average interest rate.

Other Income

Other income in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 and 2021 was not material.








32


Income Tax Expense

Our effective tax rate was 27.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 15.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in our effective tax rate principally reflects a 5.3% unfavorable impact from tax-exempt unrealized losses in the cash surrender values of life insurance policies related to the LCP recognized in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to the tax-exempt unrealized gains recognized on such policies in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase also reflects a 2.6% unfavorable impact as the third quarter of fiscal 2021 benefited from a larger income tax credit due to higher qualifying R&D expenditures.

Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interests

Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests relates to the 20% noncontrolling interest held by Lufthansa Technik AG in HEICO Aerospace Holdings Corp. and the noncontrolling interests held by others in certain subsidiaries of the FSG and ETG. Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was $10.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $6.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in net income attributable to noncontrolling interests principally reflects improved operating results of certain subsidiaries of the ETG and FSG in which noncontrolling interests are held, inclusive of fiscal 2021 and 2022 acquisitions.

Net Income Attributable to HEICO

Net income attributable to HEICO increased by 7% to $82.5 million, or $.60 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, up from $76.9 million, or $.56 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 principally reflecting the previously mentioned higher consolidated operating income, partially offset by the increase in the effective tax rate.

Outlook

As we look ahead to the remainder of fiscal 2022, we expect global commercial air travel to continue growing despite the potential for additional Pandemic variants. We remain cautiously optimistic that the ongoing worldwide rollout of Pandemic vaccines, including boosters, will continue to positively influence global commercial air travel and benefit the markets we serve. But, it still remains very difficult to predict the Pandemic's path and effect, including factors like new variants and vaccination rates, potential supply chain disruptions and inflation, which can impact our key markets. Therefore, we feel it would not be responsible to provide fiscal 2022 net sales and earnings guidance at this time. However, we believe our ongoing conservative policies, strong balance sheet, and high degree of liquidity enable us to continuously invest in new research and development, take advantage of periodic strategic inventory purchasing opportunities, and execute on our successful acquisition program, which collectively position HEICO for market share gains.







33


Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our principal uses of cash include acquisitions, capital expenditures, cash dividends, distributions to noncontrolling interests and working capital needs. We now anticipate fiscal 2022 capital expenditures to be approximately $35 million. We finance our activities primarily from our operating and financing activities, including borrowings under our revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility contains both financial and non-financial covenants. As of July 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all such covenants and our total debt to shareholders’ equity ratio was 9.9%.

On April 7, 2022, we entered into an amendment to extend the maturity date of our Revolving Credit Facility Agreement ("Credit Facility") by one year to November 2024 and to replace the Eurocurrency Rate with Adjusted Term SOFR as an election in which borrowings under the Credit Facility accrue interest, as such capitalized terms are defined in the Credit Facility.

Based on our current outlook, we believe that our net cash provided by operating activities and available borrowings under our revolving credit facility will be sufficient to fund cash requirements for at least the next twelve months.

Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities was $323.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 and consisted primarily of net income from consolidated operations of $280.5 million, depreciation and amortization expense of $70.5 million (a non-cash item), net changes in other long-term liabilities and assets related to the LCP of $13.7 million (principally participant deferrals and employer contributions), $9.8 million in share-based compensation expense (a non-cash item), and $8.9 million in employer contributions to the HEICO Savings and Investment Plan (a non-cash item), partially offset by a $65.8 million increase in net working capital. The increase in net working capital principally reflects a $61.2 million increase in inventories reflecting strategic buys within our distribution businesses and to support an increase in consolidated backlog.

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased by $10.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 from $334.1 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021. The decrease is principally attributable to an $82.6 million increase in net working capital, partially offset by a $44.0 million increase in net income from consolidated operations, a $24.8 million decrease in deferred income tax benefits and a $3.5 million increase in share-based compensation expense. The increase in net working capital primarily resulted from the previously mentioned increase in inventories.









34


Investing Activities

Net cash used in investing activities totaled $223.4 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 and related primarily to acquisitions of $175.3 million, capital expenditures of $24.4 million, investments related to the LCP of $13.4 million, and $10.3 million of other investing activities. Further details regarding our fiscal 2022 acquisitions may be found in Note 2, Acquisitions, of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Financing Activities

Net cash used in financing activities in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 totaled $70.1 million. During the first nine months of fiscal 2022, we made $157.0 million in payments on our revolving credit facility, redeemed common stock related to stock option exercises aggregating $25.8 million, paid $24.5 million in cash dividends on our common stock, made $16.8 million of distributions to noncontrolling interests and paid $8.7 million to acquire certain noncontrolling interests, which were partially offset by $162.0 million of borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

Other Obligations and Commitments

Except for the pending acquisition discussed below, there have not been any material changes to our other obligations and commitments that were included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2021.

As discussed in Note 2, Acquisitions, on August 5, 2022, we entered into a purchase agreement to acquire approximately 95% of the stock of Exxelia International for €453 million plus the assumption of approximately €14 million of liabilities. The closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, obtaining a required foreign antitrust clearance and foreign investment authorizations. Changes in the exchange rate between the Euro and the U.S. dollar will either favorably or unfavorably affect the purchase price as translated into U.S. dollars upon closing. A hypothetical 10% weakening or strengthening in the exchange rate of the Euro to the U.S. dollar as of July 31, 2022 would decrease or increase the purchase price as translated into U.S. dollars by $46.3 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this report constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements contained herein that are not clearly historical in nature may be forward-looking and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement contained herein, in press releases, written statements or other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission or in communications and discussions with investors and analysts in the normal course of business through meetings, phone calls and conference calls, concerning our operations, economic performance and financial condition are subject to risks, uncertainties and contingencies. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. All forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from anticipated results, performance or achievements. Also, forward-looking statements are based upon management’s estimates of fair values and of future costs, using currently available information. Therefore, actual results may differ materially from those expressed in or implied by those forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause such differences include: the severity, magnitude and duration of the Pandemic; our liquidity and the amount and timing of cash generation; lower commercial air travel caused by the Pandemic and its aftermath, airline fleet changes or airline purchasing decisions, which could cause lower demand for our goods and services; product specification costs and requirements, which could cause an increase to our costs to complete contracts; governmental and regulatory demands, export policies and restrictions, reductions in defense, space or homeland security spending by U.S. and/or foreign customers or competition from existing and new competitors, which could reduce our sales; our ability to introduce new products and services at profitable pricing levels, which could reduce our sales or sales growth; product development or manufacturing difficulties, which could increase our product development and manufacturing costs and delay sales; our ability to make acquisitions and achieve operating synergies from acquired businesses; customer credit risk; interest, foreign currency exchange and income tax rates; economic conditions, including the effects of inflation, within and outside of the aviation, defense, space, medical, telecommunications and electronics industries, which could negatively impact our costs and revenues; and defense spending or budget cuts, which could reduce our defense-related revenue. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by applicable law.
