HEICO CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – UNAUDITED
1.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of HEICO Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively, “HEICO,” or the “Company”) have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Therefore, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all information and footnotes normally included in annual consolidated financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2017. The October 31, 2017 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting principally of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, statements of comprehensive income, statements of shareholders' equity and statements of cash flows for such interim periods presented. The results of operations for the six months ended April 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire fiscal year.

The Company has two operating segments: the Flight Support Group (“FSG”), consisting of HEICO Aerospace Holdings Corp. and HEICO Flight Support Corp. and their respective subsidiaries; and the Electronic Technologies Group (“ETG”), consisting of HEICO Electronic Technologies Corp. (“HEICO Electronic”) and its subsidiaries.

Stock Split

In December 2017, the Company's Board of Directors declared a 5-for-4 stock split on both classes of the Company's common stock. The stock split was effected as of January 18, 2018 in the form of a 25% stock dividend distributed to shareholders of record as of January 3, 2018. All applicable share and per share information has been adjusted retrospectively to give effect to the 5-for-4 stock split.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” which provides a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance. Under ASU 2014-09, an entity will recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts. ASU 2014-09, as amended, is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017, or in fiscal 2019 for HEICO. Early adoption in the year preceding the effective date is permitted. ASU 2014-09 shall be applied either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (“full retrospective method”) or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of initial application (“modified retrospective method”). The Company expects to use the modified retrospective method.

The Company is in the process of reviewing a representative sample of customer contracts across its identified revenue streams. Based on the work completed to-date, the Company foresees two types of contracts for which ASU 2014-09 will impact the timing of revenue recognition. For certain contracts under which it produces products with no alternative use and for which the Company has an enforceable right to payment during the production cycle and for certain other contracts under which the Company creates or enhances customer-owned assets while performing repair and overhaul services, ASU 2014-09 will require HEICO to recognize revenue using an over time recognition model as opposed to the Company’s current policy of recognizing revenue at the time of shipment. The Company has not yet determined the effect the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.
    
In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11, "Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory,” which requires entities to measure inventories at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Previously, inventories were measured at the lower of cost or market. The Company adopted ASU 2015-11 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, resulting in no material effect on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases," which requires recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet of lessees. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2018, or in fiscal 2020 for HEICO. Early adoption is permitted. ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective transition approach and provides certain optional transition relief. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, "Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments," which clarifies how certain cash receipts and cash payments are to be

presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 provides guidance on eight specific cash flow classification issues including contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from corporate-owned life insurance policies and distributions received from equity method investees. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017, or in fiscal 2019 for HEICO. Early adoption is permitted. ASU 2016-15 requires a retrospective transition approach for all periods presented. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated statement of cash flows.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, "Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment," which is intended to simplify the current test for goodwill impairment by eliminating the second step in which the implied value of a reporting unit is calculated when the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value. Under ASU 2017-04, goodwill impairment should be recognized for the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. ASU 2017-04 must be applied prospectively and is effective for any annual or interim goodwill impairment test in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, or in fiscal 2021 for HEICO. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.


2.     ACQUISITIONS

In April 2018 , the Company, through a subsidiary of HEICO Electronic, acquired all of the assets and business of the Emergency Locator Transmitter Beacon product line ("ELT Product Line") of Instrumar Limited. The ELT Product Line designs and manufactures Emergency Locator Transmitter Beacons for the commercial aviation and defense markets, that upon activation, transmit a distress signal to alert search and rescue operations of the aircraft's location. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid using cash provided by operating activities.
    
In  February 2018 , the Company, through a subsidiary of HEICO Electronic, acquired 85% of the assets and business of  Sensor Technology Engineering, Inc. ("Sensor Technology") . Sensor Technology designs and manufactures sophisticated nuclear radiation detectors for law enforcement, homeland security and military applications. The remaining 15% continues to be owned by certain members of Sensory Technology's management team. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid in cash, principally using proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility.

In November 2017 , the Company, through a subsidiary of HEICO Electronic, acquired all of the stock of Interface Displays & Controls, Inc. ("IDC") . IDC designs and manufactures electronic products for aviation, marine, military fighting vehicles, and embedded computing markets. The purchase price of this acquisition was paid using cash provided by operating activities.

Index

The total consideration for the fiscal 2018 acquisitions is not material or significant to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and the related allocation to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities and noncontrolling interests assumed is preliminary until the Company obtains final information regarding their fair values. The operating results of the fiscal 2018 acquisitions were included in the Company’s results of operations from each of the effective acquisition dates. The amount of net sales and earnings of the fiscal 2018 acquisitions included in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six and three months ended April 30, 2018 is not material. Had the fiscal 2018 acquisitions been consummated as of November 1, 2016, net sales, net income from consolidated operations, net income attributable to HEICO, and basic and diluted net income per share attributable to HEICO shareholders on a pro forma basis for the six and three months ended April 30, 2018 and 2017 would not have been materially different than the reported amounts.

The revolving credit facility contains both financial and non-financial covenants. As of April 30, 2018, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.


6.     INCOME TAXES

On December 22, 2017, the United States (U.S.) government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”). The Tax Act contains significant changes to existing tax law including, among other things, a reduction in the U.S. federal statutory tax rate from 35% to 21% and the implementation of a territorial tax system resulting in a one-time transition tax on the unremitted earnings of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries. The Tax Act also contains additional provisions that will become effective for HEICO in fiscal 2019 including a new tax on Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (“GILTI”), a new deduction for Foreign-Derived Intangible Income (“FDII”), the repeal of the domestic production activity deduction and increased limitations on the deductibility of certain executive compensation. The Company has not yet determined the impact of the provisions of the Tax Act which do not become effective for HEICO until fiscal 2019.
    
The Securities and Exchange Commission issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”), which provides guidance on the accounting for the tax effects of the Tax Act. This guidance provides companies with a measurement period not to exceed one year from the



14

Index

enactment of the Tax Act to complete their accounting for the related tax effects. SAB 118 further states that during the measurement period, companies who are able to make reasonable estimates of the tax effects of the Tax Act should include those amounts in their financial statements as provisional amounts and reflect any adjustments in subsequent periods as they refine their estimates or complete their accounting of such tax effects.
    
As a result of the Tax Act, the Company has revised its estimated annual effective federal statutory income tax rate to reflect a reduction in the rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018, which results in a blended rate of 23.3% for HEICO in fiscal 2018. Additionally, the Company remeasured its U.S. federal net deferred tax liabilities and recorded a provisional discrete tax benefit of $16.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Further, the Company recorded a provisional discrete tax expense of $4.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 related to a one-time transition tax on the unremitted earnings of the Company's foreign subsidiaries. The Company intends to pay this tax over the eight-year period allowed for in the Tax Act.

The Company’s effective tax rate in the first six months of fiscal 2018 decreased to 14.8% from 29.5% in the first six months of fiscal 2017. The decrease principally reflects the previously mentioned discrete tax benefit from the remeasurement of the Company’s U.S. federal net deferred tax liabilities and the benefit of a lower federal statutory income tax rate, which were partially offset by the aforementioned one-time transition tax expense.

The Company's effective tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 decreased to 23.6% from 32.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. The decrease principally reflects the previously mentioned benefit of a lower federal statutory income tax rate.

The Company maintains two non-qualified deferred compensation plans. The assets of the HEICO Corporation Leadership Compensation Plan (the "LCP") principally represent cash surrender values of life insurance policies, which derive their fair values from investments in mutual funds that are managed by an insurance company and are classified within Level 2 and valued using a market approach. Certain other assets of the LCP represent investments in money market funds that are classified within Level 1. The assets of the Company’s other deferred compensation plan are principally invested in equity securities and mutual funds that are classified within Level 1. The assets of both plans are held within irrevocable trusts and



16

Index

classified within other assets in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and have an aggregate value of $133.4 million as of April 30, 2018 and $122.9 million as of October 31, 2017, of which the LCP related assets were $127.4 million and $117.2 million as of April 30, 2018 and October 31, 2017, respectively. The related liabilities of the two deferred compensation plans are included within other long-term liabilities in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and have an aggregate value of $132.3 million as of April 30, 2018 and $121.7 million as of October 31, 2017, of which the LCP related liability was $126.3 million and $116.0 million as of April 30, 2018 and October 31, 2017, respectively.

As part of the agreement to acquire a subsidiary by the ETG in fiscal 2017, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of $20.0 million in fiscal 2023 should the acquired entity meet certain earnings objectives during the first six years following the acquisition. As of April 30, 2018, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $13.4 million .

As part of the agreement to acquire certain assets of a company by the ETG in fiscal 2016, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to $1.7 million in aggregate during the first four years following the first anniversary of the acquisition. As of October 31, 2017, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was $1.4 million . During fiscal 2018, the Company paid $.3 million of contingent consideration based on the actual financial performance of the acquired entity during the second year following the acquisition. As of April 30, 2018, the estimated fair value of the remaining contingent consideration was $1.1 million .    

As part of the agreement to acquire a subsidiary by the FSG in fiscal 2015, the Company may be obligated to pay contingent consideration of up to €6.1 million per year, or €12.2 million in aggregate, should the acquired entity meet certain earnings objectives during each of the first two years following the second anniversary of the acquisition. As of April 30, 2018, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration was €8.2 million , or $9.9 million , as compared to €10.8 million , or $12.6 million , as of October 31, 2017. The decrease in the f air value of the contingent consideration is principally attributed to revised earnings estimates for the final year of the earnout period that reflect less favorable projected market conditions.

The estimated fair value of the contingent consideration arrangements described above are classified within Level 3 and were determined using a probability-based scenario analysis approach. Under this method, a set of discrete potential future subsidiary earnings was determined using internal estimates based on various revenue growth rate assumptions for each scenario. A probability of likelihood was assigned to each discrete potential future earnings estimate and the resultant contingent consideration was calculated. The resulting probability-weighted contingent consideration amounts were discounted using a weighted average discount rate reflecting the credit risk of HEICO. Changes in either the revenue growth rates, related earnings or the discount rate could result in a material change to the amount of contingent consideration accrued and such changes will be recorded in the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations.

The Company recorded the decrease in accrued contingent consideration and foreign currency transaction adjustments set forth in the table above within selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

The Company did not have any transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements during the six months ended April 30, 2018.

The carrying amounts of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, trade accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate fair value as of April 30, 2018 due to the relatively short maturity of the respective instruments. The carrying amount of long-term debt approximates fair value due to its variable interest rates.
