HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/13 -- Era Group Inc. (NYSE: ERA) today reported net income for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013 of $5.1 million on operating revenues of $74.2 million compared to net income of $3.6 million on operating revenues of $63.0 million in the prior year period.

Operating income for the current quarter was $10.8 million compared to operating income of $7.4 million in the prior year period. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude SEACOR management fees and certain other items ("Adjusted EBITDA"), was $23.2 million for the current quarter compared to $18.5 million for the prior year period. Second quarter results for the current year included $4.5 million in gains on asset dispositions compared with $1.1 million in gains in the second quarter of 2012.

The $11.3 million increase in operating revenues related to $8.7 million of additional revenues from oil and gas activities primarily due to a greater number of medium helicopters being placed in service as a result of increased deepwater activity in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico; the resumption of services with a customer in Alaska that had been temporarily suspended in the prior year period; and a new international contract that commenced in January 2013. In addition, contract-leasing revenues increased $3.7 million, primarily due to the recognition of previously deferred revenues related to two of our customers in Brazil and India. Operating revenues from flightseeing and our fixed base operation in Alaska experienced increases of $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively, primarily the result of better weather conditions which led to an increase in flying activity. These increases were partially offset by a $1.7 million reduction in operating revenues from air medical services due to the conclusion of three long-term hospital contracts in effect during the prior year period.

Operating expenses were $7.9 million higher reflecting primarily an increase in repairs and maintenance costs as a result of the timing of repairs in 2013 and the absence of the benefit from vendor credits recognized in the same period in the prior year.

Administrative and general expenses were $2.4 million higher primarily due to an increase in costs associated with being an independent public company and an increase in compensation and employee costs, primarily the result of share-based compensation related to incentive equity awards granted following our spin-off from SEACOR Holdings Inc. ("SEACOR").

Depreciation expense was $11.4 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $1.0 million compared to the prior year period, primarily due to fleet additions.

Gains on asset dispositions were $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. These amounts included a gain of $4.3 million on the sale of two S76C++ helicopters to a customer who had previously been contract-leasing them and gains of $0.2 million on the sale of other equipment in the normal course of business.

Sequential Quarter Results

Second quarter operating revenues increased $6.5 million compared to the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Second quarter net income decreased $1.6 million compared to the first quarter. Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter decreased by $3.8 million and $3.3 million, respectively. The decreases in net income, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA were primarily due to a $6.3 million reduction in gains recognized on asset dispositions between the respective periods in 2013.

Six Month Results

The Company reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 of $11.7 million on operating revenues of $142.0 million compared to a net loss of $1.0 million on operating revenues of $124.0 million in the same period a year ago. Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the current six months were $25.4 million and $49.8 million, respectively, compared to operating income of $11.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $34.8 million in the same period a year ago. Repairs and maintenance expenses increased $10.1 million primarily due to the timing of repairs in 2013 and the absence of the benefit from vendor credits recognized in the same period a year ago. Results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 included $15.3 million in gains on asset dispositions compared with $2.8 million in gains in the same period a year ago. Earnings from equity investments were $1.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013, an increase of $6.9 million compared to the prior year period loss of $5.7 million, primarily due to the recognition of a loss of $0.6 million and an impairment charge of $5.9 million, net of tax, on our investment in our Brazilian joint venture in the first quarter of 2012.

EC225 Helicopters

In 2012, there were ditchings of EC225 helicopters that led major global operators to suspend EC225 helicopter operations. Eurocopter, a division of European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company and manufacturer of the EC225 helicopters, through an internal investigation identified the root cause of the service failures and implemented engineering solutions, prevention and detection measures to remedy the matters that led to the suspension. On July 10, 2013, the European Aviation Safety Agency approved these measures, and the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority lifted operational restrictions. The Civil Aviation Authority of Norway followed suit on July 19, 2013. These measures and related regulatory approvals are expected to allow the full return to service of the EC225 helicopters on a worldwide basis. Two of the Company's EC225 helicopters in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico have now returned to service, and we plan to resume operations of the two other EC225 helicopters in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico by the end of August.

Equipment Acquisitions

During the quarter ended June 30, 2013, the Company's capital expenditures were $11.2 million, which consisted primarily of a helicopter acquisition. The Company records helicopter acquisitions in property and equipment and places helicopters in service once all completion work has been finalized and the helicopters are ready for use. The Company did not place additional helicopters in service during the current quarter. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had one AW139 medium helicopter that was delivered in May 2013 but not placed in service until July.

Capital Commitments

The Company's unfunded capital commitments as of June 30, 2013 consisted primarily of orders for helicopters and totaled $205.6 million, of which $10.6 million is payable during the remainder of 2013 with the balance payable through 2017. The Company also had $1.1 million of deposits paid on options not yet exercised. The Company may terminate $174.6 million of its total commitments (inclusive of deposits paid on options not yet exercised) without further liability other than liquidated damages of $11.8 million in the aggregate.

Included in these capital commitments are agreements to purchase ten AW189 heavy helicopters and five AW169 light twin helicopters. The AW189 heavy helicopters are scheduled to be delivered in 2014 through 2017. Delivery dates for the AW169 light twin helicopters have yet to be determined. In addition, we had outstanding options to purchase up to an additional eight AW139 medium helicopters and ten AW189 heavy helicopters.

Subsequent to June 30, 2013, the Company exercised three of the AW139 options. Two of the AW139 helicopters are scheduled to be delivered by year-end 2013, and one is scheduled for delivery in mid-2014. Upon exercise of these options, the unfunded capital commitments for these three helicopters were $35.9 million.

Liquidity Update

As of June 30, 2013, the Company had a cash balance of $27.3 million, escrow deposits of $16.0 million and remaining availability under its senior secured revolving credit facility of $149.3 million. The escrow deposits related to the sale of two S76C++ medium helicopters, which closed in May 2013 and were treated as tax-free like-kind exchanges under Section 1031 for tax purposes with the proceeds held by a qualified intermediary. Qualified properties were not identified to complete the like-kind exchanges under Section 1031 prior to expiration of the 45-day period subsequent to the closing date. As a result, the $16.0 million was released to our general cash balance in July. Also in July, we repaid $15.0 million outstanding under our revolving credit facility resulting in a drawn balance of $35.0 million and available capacity of $164.3 million at July 31, 2013.

Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to assess the performance and operating results of our business. EBITDA is defined as Earnings before Interest (includes interest income, interest expense and interest expense on advances from SEACOR), Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted for SEACOR Management Fees and certain other items that occur during the reported period. We include EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance. We also present Adjusted EBITDAR, which is defined as Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted for rent expense (included as components of operating expense and general and administrative) because we believe that research analysts and investment bankers use this metric to assess our and others in our peer group's performance. Neither EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDAR is a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"). Accordingly, they should not be used as an indicator of, or an alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. In addition, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements, such as debt service requirements. Because the definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR (or similar measures) may vary among companies and industries, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The following table provides a reconciliation of Net Income (Loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR.
