  • HEICO Market Commentary

    HEICO this week reported net income of $11.1 million for its third quarter, down a tick from the year-earlier time period. Some market commentary from HEICO chief Laurans Mendelson, as detailed in a company press release:
    Demand for passenger air travel and cargo traffic remains soft. Current market forecasts of worldwide airline capacity reductions in 2009 continue to range from decreases of 5 percent to 10 percent from 2008 levels with forecasted MRO spending down 10% percent to 15 percent for overhaul and repairs services and 15 percent to 25 percent for replacement parts during the same period due to capacity reductions, inventory destocking and short-term maintenance deferrals. We have been able to offset a substantial portion of this market decline by accelerated new product development efforts and additional market penetration.
