ARC Group Worldwide Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Results

DELAND, FL --(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) - ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. ("ARC" and the "Company") (NASDAQ: ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, today reported its third quarter fiscal year 2016 (March 27, 2016) results.

Highlights for the quarter ended March 27, 2016, compared sequentially to the quarter ended December 27, 2015:

  • Sales of $26.5 million, an increase of 5.9%;
  • Gross profit of $5.7 million, an increase of 23.6%; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $3.4 million, an increase of 18.3%.

Third Quarter Results

Third fiscal quarter 2016 revenue was $26.5 million, a 5.9% increase sequentially, compared to the second fiscal quarter of 2016. The increase was largely driven by continued momentum from our new sales efforts. Gross profit was $5.7 million, an increase of 23.6% sequentially. The increase in gross profit reflects the underlying operating leverage in ARC's business, as the Company scales revenue and continues to improve efficiencies in its manufacturing process. Simarily, gross margin increased to 21.6%, from 18.5% in the prior sequential period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third fiscal quarter was $3.4 million, an 18.3% increase sequentially, compared to the second fiscal quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased to 12.8%, from 11.5% in the prior sequential quarter, reflecting greater operational efficiencies. Adjusted EPS was a loss of $0.01 for the current period, an improvement from a loss of $0.03 in the prior sequential period.

Jason Young, CEO, commented, "Macro headwinds remain, but we are encouraged by our second sequentially positive quarter in terms of sales, gross profit, Adjusted EBITDA, and related margins. While still in its early stages, our new sales leadership and customer-centric approach is building momentum. Relatedly, improving speed to market is paramount to our customers and therefore, to our strategy. We continue to believe that along with lean manufacturing, improved tooling speed, and automation, there are a number of ways we can continue to accelerate speed to market from prototype to production. Lastly, we have a strong pipeline in metal 3D printing and plan to continue to invest in growing our capabilities at 3DMT."

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are calculated by dividing EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, by sales. The Company has provided non-GAAP financial information to provide additional, meaningful comparisons of current results to prior periods' results by excluding items that the Company does not believe reflect its fundamental business performance and are not representative or indicative of its results of operations. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The reconciliation to GAAP is as follows (dollars in thousands):

EBITDA excludes interest expense, net and income taxes because these items are associated with our capitalization and tax structures. EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense because these non-cash expenses reflect the impact of prior capital expenditure decisions which may not be indicative of future capital expenditure requirements.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the impact of share-based compensation expense and reorganization/transaction expenses. Shared-based compensation expense relates to the Company's grant of stock options to employees. Reorganization expenses are primarily labor and labor related costs associated with the termination of employees and transaction expenses are primarily professional fees related to the refinancing of debt.

Adjusted Earnings removes the impact of share-based compensation expense and reorganization/transaction related expenses.
