April 30, 2018

Vancouver, British Columbia. ATLAS ENGINEERED PRODUCTS LTD. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: AEP), a leading supplier of trusses and engineered wood products, released its financial results for the third quarter ended February 28, 2018.

Accretive Acquisitions

The Company’s Clinton and Truebeam acquisitions were completed during the final week of the third quarter. The key benefits of these acquisitions are:

• Immediately accretive revenues and EBITDA for each of Clinton and Truebeam which will be reflected in the fourth fiscal quarter 2018.

• Servicing growing Southwestern Ontario communities of Mississauga, Hamilton and London, as well as Northern Alberta communities of Fort McMurray and Peace River.

• Operational in three major provinces in Canada, which will allow for future expansion in these key provinces on an accelerated basis.

Financial highlights for the Third Quarter 2018:

• The third quarter financial results include the impact of costs associated with adding to the Company’s management team and infrastructure to support growth, and expenses related to the Company’s accretive acquisition and expansion program.

• Revenue growth to $2,079,046 for the 2018 quarter as compared to revenue of $1,757,921 for the 2017 quarter, which represents a 18% increase for the quarter.

• Year over year revenue growth for the nine months ended February 28, 2018 was 26%.

• Q3 Gross Margins of 24% for the Quarter, and 27% year-to-date.

• Adjusted EBITDA* of $83,830 for the quarter is lower as compared to $222,722 for the three months ended February 28, 2017 due to increased costs to support the Company’s expansion. In future quarters these will be offset by the results of the Company’s accretive acquisitions.

• Net loss of $295,757 for the third quarter 2018 compared to net income of $140,215. Increase in net loss mostly a result of share based payment expense of $285,412 and acquisition costs relating to Clinton and Truebeam.

*Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure not recognized under IFRS. However, management of the Company believes that most shareholders, creditors, other stakeholders and investment analysts prefer to have these measures included as reported measures of operating performance, a proxy for cash flow, and to facilitate valuation analysis. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation, restructuring costs, impairment charges and other non-recurring gains or losses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates periodto-period operating comparisons. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA is not an alternative to measures determined in accordance with IFRS and should not, on its own, be construed as indicators of performance, cash flow or profitability. References to the Atlas' Adjusted EBITDA should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and management's discussion and analysis of Atlas posted on SEDAR (
