CHC Helicopter's Fiscal-2013 Third Quarter Marks Eighth Straight of Revenue, EBITDAR Growth

- Revenue of $442M Up 9 Percent Year-Over-Year

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 -- CHC Helicopter marked the eighth consecutive quarter of revenue and earnings growth in its fiscal third-quarter 2013. Results included double-digit EBITDAR gains in both the flying and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) businesses.

Consolidated revenue rose 9 percent, to $442 million, for the quarter that ended Jan. 31. CHC recorded a net loss of $63 million for the period, including a non-cash, deferred tax-asset write-off of $28 million.

EBITDAR - earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and aircraft rental costs (EBITDAR), a leading measure of CHC's operational profitability - was $121 million, up 18 percent.

Revenue for CHC's flying segment was up 10 percent; EBITDAR for the unit rose 13 percent.

Heli-One, the company's MRO business, continued to expand the sales backlog for its services, which are often contracted for and recognized over several years. In the most recent quarter, total revenue was up 5 percent. Higher sales and enhanced operational efficiency contributed to an EBITDAR increase of 23 percent.

"We're delivering solid operating results at the same time we're streamlining and making other improvements that are strengthening CHC for the long haul," said William Amelio, the company's president and chief executive officer. "That's what good companies do."

"We're better positioning ourselves to serve customers by meeting their changing requirements, and doing it with ever-higher levels of safety."

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

Helicopter Services (flying)


--  Revenue gains in CHC's flying business were largest in Brazil,
    Australia, and the Western North Sea. EBITDAR was up sharply in all of
    those locations along with the Eastern North Sea; in Brazil, the measure
    nearly doubled. 
--  Contract wins in the quarter were broadly distributed around the world -
    in places including Thailand, Norway, the U.K. and Australia. 
--  CHC was recently chosen for contracts in the strategically important
    Africa region: one with Shell, providing two heavy aircraft to follow a
    mobile deepwater exploration rig along the Sub-Saharan coast; and a
    second in Nigeria through Atlantic Aviation, the first for the newly
    formed partnership with Jagal Group that represents CHC's return to that
    country.

Heli-One (MRO)


--  During Q3 Heli-One negotiated and has since completed major new
    contracts with: 
    --  The U.K. Ministry of Defense, to service dozens of Turbomeca Makila
        engines over more than 10 years, and 
    --  Brazil-based Omni Taxi Aereo, to increase the range of airframes
        covered by and extend into 2018 a power-by-the-hour, or PBH,
        services agreement between the companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures, segment earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and aircraft lease rent and associated costs ("segment EBITDAR (adjusted)") referred to above as EBITDAR and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") that are not required by, or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP measures are not performance measures under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net earnings (loss) or any other performance or liquidity measures derived in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. CHC has provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure below. CHC has chosen to include segment EBITDAR (adjusted) as we consider this to be a significant indicator of our financial performance and use this measure to assist us in allocating available capital resources. We have also included EBITDA as this measure is useful to our debt holders as it is a proxy of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors as it is a measure to calculate certain financial covenants related to our revolving credit facility and certain covenants in the indenture. CHC has provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure below and has presented a detailed discussion of its reasons for including non-GAAP financial measures and the limitations associated with those measures as part of the "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" contained in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K. CHC encourages investors to review the reconciliation and the non-GAAP discussion in conjunction with our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures.
