HEICO CORPORATION REPORTS RECORD NET SALES FOR
THE THIRD QUARTER OF FISCAL 2023

Fiscal 2023 3rd Quarter Net Income up 24% on 16% Operating Income Increase, and Record Net Sales - Which Increased 27%

HOLLYWOOD, FL and MIAMI, FL -- HEICO CORPORATION (NYSE: HEI.A) (NYSE: HEI) today reported net sales increased 27% to a record $722.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $569.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Operating income increased 16% to $149.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $128.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The Company's consolidated operating margin was 20.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to 22.6% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022.

Net sales increased 27% to a record $2,031.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $1,598.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. Operating income increased 24% to a record $435.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $350.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The Company's consolidated operating margin was 21.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, as compared to 21.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

Improvement in the commercial aerospace market has resulted in twelve consecutive quarters of sequential growth in net sales at the Flight Support Group.

Net income attributable to HEICO increased 24% to $102.0 million, or $.74 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $82.5 million, or $.60 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Net income attributable to HEICO increased 18% to a record $300.2 million, or $2.17 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $254.5 million, or $1.85 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

The Company incurred acquisition costs during the third quarter of fiscal 2023 related to the Wencor Group ("Wencor") acquisition, which decreased net income attributable to HEICO in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 by approximately $3.5 million, or 3 cents per diluted share.

EBITDA increased 18% to $179.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $152.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. EBITDA increased 24% to $524.1 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $421.6 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. See our reconciliation of net income attributable to HEICO to EBITDA at the end of this press release.

Consolidated Results

Laurans A. Mendelson, HEICO’s Chairman and CEO, commented on the Company's third quarter results stating, "We are very pleased to report record quarterly consolidated net sales at both the Flight Support Group and the Electronic Technologies Group. These results reflect 12% consolidated organic growth in our net sales principally arising from a continued strong demand for our commercial aerospace products and services and the contributions from our fiscal 2023 and 2022 acquisitions.

Earlier this month, we completed the acquisition of Wencor for $1.9 billion in cash and approximately 1.1 million shares of HEICO Class A Common Stock with an assigned value of $150 million in the merger agreement, or $2.05 billion in the aggregate. The transaction is HEICO's largest ever in terms of purchase price, as well as revenues and income acquired. As I have stated before, we believe Wencor is a perfect and highly complementary fit with HEICO. We expect the combination will be transformative, providing a unique and growing portfolio of proprietary cost-saving solutions for our airline and OEM customers. We continue to anticipate this highly synergistic acquisition to be accretive to our earnings within the year following closing. Further, HEICO anticipates it will continue to achieve its often-articulated growth objectives in the years subsequent to the closing. Immediately following the closing, we forecast our pro forma net debt-to-EBITDA leverage ratio will be approximately 3:1 and will return to historical levels within roughly one year to eighteen months after the acquisition, excluding the impact of any future acquisitions or other possible capital deployment activities.

Our total debt to net income attributable to HEICO trailing twelve months ratio was 3.06x as of July 31, 2023, as compared to .83x as of October 31, 2022. Our net debt to EBITDA ratio was .75x and .25x as of July 31, 2023 and October 31, 2022, respectively. Our net debt to EBITDA ratio increase in the first nine months of fiscal 2023 principally reflects our successful offering of $600 million principal amount of 5.25% Senior Unsecured Notes due August 1, 2028 (the "2028 Notes") and $600 million principal amount of 5.35% Senior Unsecured Notes due August 1, 2033 (the "2033 Notes" and, collectively with the 2028 Notes, the "Notes"). We used the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes to repay the outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility and to fund a portion of the Wencor acquisition purchase price.

Cash flow provided by operating activities was $145.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to $149.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Cash flow provided by operating activities in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 reflects an increase in working capital principally driven by an increase in inventories to support our increased


-more-


consolidated backlog. We continue to forecast strong cash flow from operations for fiscal 2023.

As we look ahead to the remainder of fiscal 2023, we continue to anticipate net sales growth in both the FSG and ETG, principally driven by demand for the majority of our products. Additionally, continued inflationary pressures and lingering supply chain disruptions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic may lead to higher material and labor costs. Further, we've begun the sharing of best practices, and getting to know the Wencor businesses which share a similar entrepreneurial culture and customer focus as HEICO's businesses. We remain committed to developing new products and services and further market penetration, while maintaining our financial strength and flexibility."

Flight Support Group

Eric A. Mendelson, HEICO's Co-President and President of HEICO's Flight Support Group, commented on the Flight Support Group's record third quarter results stating, "Continuing our growth trend, we achieved quarterly increases of 26% and 23% in operating income and net sales, respectively, as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2022. These results principally reflect robust 19% quarterly organic net sales growth mainly driven by our commercial aerospace parts and services. The Flight Support Group has now achieved twelve consecutive quarters of growth in net sales, and these numbers don't yet include the positive impact we expect from the Wencor acquisition, which will further transform our business as the world's leading independent aftermarket supplier.

The Flight Support Group's net sales increased 23% to a record $405.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $330.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The Flight Support Group's net sales increased 29% to a record $1,168.5 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $909.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The net sales increase in the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2023 reflects strong organic growth of 19% and 21%, respectively, as well as the impact from our profitable fiscal 2022 acquisitions. The organic growth mainly reflects increased demand for the majority of our commercial aerospace products and services resulting from continued global commercial air travel growth as compared to the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2022.

The Flight Support Group's operating income increased 26% to $89.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $70.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The operating income increase principally reflects the previously mentioned net sales growth and an improved gross profit margin, partially offset by an increase in the previously mentioned acquisition costs related to the Wencor acquisition. The improved gross profit margin principally reflects higher net sales and a favorable product mix across all of our product lines.



-more-


The Flight Support Group's operating income increased 44% to a record $272.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $189.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The operating income increase principally reflects the previously mentioned net sales growth, an improved gross profit margin, efficiencies realized from the higher net sales volume and the impact from an amendment and termination of a contingent consideration agreement, partially offset by higher performance-based compensation expense. The improved gross profit margin principally reflects higher net sales within our aftermarket replacement parts and specialty products product lines, and lower inventory obsolescence expenses in the first nine months of fiscal 2023 mainly due to increased demand for our aftermarket replacement parts.

The Flight Support Group's operating margin improved to 22.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from 21.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The operating margin increase principally reflects the previously mentioned improved gross profit margin, partially offset by the previously mentioned acquisition costs.

The Flight Support Group's operating margin improved to 23.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from 20.8% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The operating margin increase principally reflects the previously mentioned improved gross profit margin, efficiencies realized from the higher net sales volume and the impact from the amendment and termination of a contingent consideration agreement, partially offset by the higher performance-based compensation expense."

Electronic Technologies Group

Victor H. Mendelson, HEICO's Co-President and President of HEICO’s Electronic Technologies Group, commented on the Electronic Technologies Group's third quarter results stating, "Greater demand for the majority of our products and the net sales contribution from the recent Exxelia acquisition drove record net sales in the quarter. We are pleased to see 10% sequential growth over the second quarter of fiscal 2023 in defense product net sales as well as organic net sales growth from our commercial aerospace and other electronics products that contributed to 2% overall organic net sales growth in the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
The Electronic Technologies Group's net sales increased 33% to a record $325.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $244.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The Electronic Technologies Group's net sales increased 25% to a record $882.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, as compared to $703.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The net sales increase in the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2023 principally reflects the impact from our fiscal 2023 and 2022 acquisitions as well as increased net sales of our commercial aviation and other electronics products, partially offset by lower year-over-year defense products net sales.

The Electronic Technologies Group's operating income increased 9% to $74.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, up from $68.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022.


-more-


The Electronic Technologies Group's operating income increased 5% to $198.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, up from $189.6 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The operating income increase in the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2023 principally reflects the previously mentioned higher net sales volume, partially offset by a lower gross profit margin and higher costs from the impact of the Exxelia acquisition. The lower gross profit margin principally reflects decreased net sales of defense products, partially offset by increased net sales of our commercial aviation and other electronics products.

The Electronic Technologies Group's operating margin was 22.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to 27.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The Electronic Technologies Group's operating margin was 22.5% in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, as compared to 26.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The lower operating margin in the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2023 principally reflects the previously mentioned lower gross profit margin and increased SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide additional information about the Company's results, HEICO has discussed in this press release its EBITDA (calculated as net income attributable to HEICO adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, interest expense and income tax expense), its net debt (calculated as total debt less cash and cash equivalents), and its net debt to EBITDA ratio (calculated as net debt divided by EBITDA), which are not prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

These non-GAAP measures are included to supplement the Company’s financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and because the Company uses such measures to monitor and evaluate the performance of its business and believes the presentation of these measures enhance an investor's ability to analyze trends in the Company’s business and to evaluate the Company’s performance relative to other companies in its industry. However, these non-GAAP measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with their corresponding GAAP measures. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures in the last table included in this press release.
