November 08, 2019


Nanaimo, British Columbia / Atlas Engineered Products Ltd. (“AEP” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AEP; OTC Markets: APEUF) announces its financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. All amounts are presented in Canadian dollars.

“I am pleased to report a second consecutive quarter with positive net income, significant year-over-year revenue growth, and for the first time since going public in November 2017, positive net income year-to-date results for the nine months ended September 30, 2019,” said AEP CEO & President Dirk Maritz.

Financial Highlights

  • Overall revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $10,451,562 and $25,735,804 respectively, up from $5,083,058 and $11,149,553 for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2018, representing overall growth in revenue from the prior comparative period of 106% and 131%, respectively. The Company also experienced a 15.3% revenue growth from the three months ending June 30, 2019 to the three months ending September 30, 2019. This performance aligns with overall Company strategy, taking into account the seasonality and acquisition growth of the business.
  • Compared to the financial year ended December 31, 2018 (-4.9%), the Company has generated a positive adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
  • Continuing the trend begun in the Company’s June 30, 2019 fiscal quarter, operating income has continued to be positive at $735,763 and $1,038,855 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to operating losses of $(8,050) and $(801,040) for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2018.
  • The Company also repeated the trend begun in the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019, reporting net income of $531,710 for the three months ended September 30, 2019, and $254,949 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This is the first time that the Company has reported positive net income for the year to date results since going public in November 2017.

“Taking seasonality into account, we believe the acquisitions we have completed, the addition of new product lines and sales staff, and the focus on improved costs put us on track to achieve our objective of full year EBITDA margin in the 10 – 15% range,” explained Mr. Maritz. We’re realizing greater economies of scale through integration activities such as consolidated raw material supply, improved manufacturing efficiency and productivity gains, and lower cost of sales.”
