Atlas Engineered Products Reports Record Revenue and Net Income for Q2 2019

July 30, 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 six months ended June 30, 2019. All amounts are presented in Canadian dollars.

“I am pleased to report a record overall quarterly revenue result and that quarterly net income was positive for the first time since our public listing in November of 2017. This was achieved through significant organic growth and operational efficiencies in the first half of 2019”, said AEP CEO & President Dirk Maritz.

Financial Highlights

  • Overall revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 was $9,067,334 and $15,284,242 respectively, up from $3,987,449 and $6,066,495 for the three and six months ended May 31, 2018, representing overall growth in revenue from the prior comparative period of 127% and 152%, respectively. This increase in overall revenue was a result of organic growth in AEP’s existing operations, as well as additional revenue from our acquisitions.
  • Compared to the financial year ended December 31, 2018 (-4.9%), AEP generated a positive adjusted EBITDA margin of 17.0% for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019, up from 3.2% for the Company’s first quarter ended March 31, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, adjusted EBITDA margin was 11.4%.
  • Operating income has turned sharply positive at $782,013 and $303,092 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to operating losses of ($543,575) and ($792,990) for the three and six months ended May 31, 2018.
  • AEP reported net income after taxes of $162,876 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. This is the first quarter that AEP has reported net income since going public in November 2017.
  • AEP restructured some of its debt to more favourable terms, strengthening its balance sheet and more closely aligning the repayment terms to the seasonality of AEP’s business. Some term loans have been restructured to be interest-only payments from January to May when the construction season is slower and retaining cash is important. From June to December, when construction and building activities are at their peak, AEP will make principal and interest payments.

“In the last quarter we announced significant nation-wide supply and service agreements that will result in long-term bottom line benefits to all our current and future operations,” explained Mr. Maritz. We were also able to execute on our plan to expand product offerings at our facilities and continued to grow our sales force, all of which allows us to compete for, and win, larger and more complex project bids across the country.”

Non-GAAP / Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Certain financial measures in this news release do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and, therefore are considered non-IFRS or non-GAAP measures. These non-IFRS measures are used by management to facilitate the analysis and comparison of period-to-period operating results for the Company and to assess whether the Company’s operations are generating sufficient operating cash flow to fund working capital needs and to fund capital expenditures.
