Wesco Aircraft Holdings
Wesco Aircraft Holdings Inc, Valencia-based provider of comprehensive supply chain management services to the global aerospace industry, Aug. 8 announced results for its fiscal 2017 third quarter ended June 30, 2017.
The company reported net sales of $363.9 million, down 3.0 percent, and a net loss of $229.6 million, or $2.32 per diluted share.
“Our fiscal 2017 third quarter results were poor and well below our capabilities, reflecting both execution issues and volume declines at certain key customers,” said CEO Todd Renehan in a statement.
“As we have previously disclosed, we are addressing execution issues through initiatives focused on improving profitable growth and margins; procurement and inventory management; customer service and on-time delivery; and efficiency and costs. While we are working hard on these initiatives, they will take time to complete, and their impact is not reflected in our latest results. Despite these internal issues, our customers continue to recognize Wesco’s value proposition, renewing long-term contracts and awarding new business.”
