WOOD DALE, ILLINOIS (July 17, 2012) — AAR (NYSE: AIR) today reported fourth quarter fiscal 2012 results that were in line with the preliminary results released on June 14, 2012. Fourth quarter sales were $563.3 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.45 before the effects of special items and $0.32 after the effects of the special items. For the fourth quarter of last fiscal year, the Company reported sales of $487.8 million and $0.52 diluted earnings per share.

 

For the Company’s fiscal year 2012, sales were a record $2.1 billion, a 14.4% increase versus the prior year, and net income attributable to AAR was $67.7 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, compared with sales of $1.8 billion, net income attributable to AAR of $69.8 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.73 in the prior fiscal year.

 

Sales to commercial customers increased 48.5% compared to the fourth quarter of last year and 32.4% in fiscal 2012 compared to fiscal 2011. Fourth quarter sales growth included 16.5% organic sales growth to commercial customers primarily due to strength in the Company’s Aviation Supply Chain and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul segments. The balance of the commercial sales growth came primarily from the newly acquired businesses, Telair and Nordisk, which were acquired by the Company in early December 2011.  Sales to commercial customers represented 60% of total sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

 

Sales to government and defense customers decreased 13.5% in the fourth quarter and 1.9% for the fiscal year.  The sales decline was primarily due to lower program activity at the Company’s defense logistics business and the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 adjustment to the KC10 support contract.

 

Commenting on fourth quarter results in the Company’s commercial markets, David P. Storch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AAR CORP. stated, “We had exceptional sales growth in our
