HII Technologies, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Management to Host Conference Call on Thursday, August 14th at 11:00 am ET

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - August 07, 2014) - HII Technologies, Inc. ("HII Technologies" or "the "Company") (OTCQB: HIIT), an oilfield services company headquartered in Houston, Texas, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Revenues increased 109% to $6.8 million compared to Q2, 2013 due to strong sales from all three divisions
  • Gross Profit increased 112% to $1.8 million compared to Q2, 2013
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.04 million and $0.57 million for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively
  • Water division grew its operations to include new activity in the Barnett Shale
  • Signed 7 Master Service Agreements ("MSAs") with new customers

HII Technologies' oilfield services operations are in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and West Virginia. The Company is focused on commercializing technologies and providing services in the Water, Safety and Power market segments for exploration and production ("E&P") customers in the domestic United States.

The Company's frac water management services division conducts business through its wholly-owned subsidiaries AES Water Solutions and AquaTex. The water division provides total frac water management solutions associated with the millions of gallons of water typically used during hydraulic fracturing and completions of horizontally drilled oil and gas wells. Frac water management services include water transfer, flow back systems, above-ground tank storage, as well as onsite frac water recycling and evaporation services without the need of trucking or disposal wells. AES Safety Services is the Company's oilfield safety consultancy that provides experienced, trained safety personnel including contract safety engineers during oilfield operations from drilling to completion for E&P customers. Additional services provided under our Safety Services division include training, inspection and environmental remediation services. The Company's oilfield mobile power subsidiary does business as South Texas Power (STP) and operates a fleet of mobile generators, light towers and related equipment for in-field power rental where remote locations provide little or no existing power infrastructure.

   Q2 2014  Q2 2013  CHANGE
Revenues  $6.8 million  $3.2 million  +109%
Gross Profit  $1.8 million  $0.9 million  +112%
Gross Margin  27.1%  26.8%  +.3%

(1) A reconciliation table of the Adjusted EBITDA for second quarter 2014 is provided below

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $6.8 million, up 109% from $3.2 million in the comparable 2013 period. This increase was primarily attributable to the continued growth within the water division from AES Water Solutions and AquaTex's frac water management services. Additionally, increased revenues came from the organic growth of AES Safety Services, including its new environmental remediation service line and the organic growth of STP's business in mobile oilfield power. The Water division totaled approximately 58% of the quarterly revenues while the Safety and Power divisions totaled about 30% and 12%, respectively, for the second quarter 2014.

"Activity levels in the second quarter continued to be robust in the markets where we operate despite utilization of some of our frac water transfer and flow back equipment being affected by delays from certain customers. While the revenues generated from the second quarter of 2014 increased by more than 100% from the comparable 2013 period, we anticipate accelerated growth in the second half of this year in all divisions," stated Brent Mulliniks, President of AES Water Solutions. "AquaTex's expansion into new areas of Texas where drilling activity is increasing contributed to the improvement in revenue. Existing customers are continuing to rely on our frac water management systems and new Master Services Agreements (MSAs) are being acquired, which provide for more work from new customers in the Permian Basin and West Texas." 

Cost of revenues increased approximately 108% to $4.9 million in the three months end June 30, 2014, or 73% of revenues, compared to cost of revenues of $2.4 million, or 73% of revenues for comparable 2013 period. The Company's gross profit and gross margin were $1.8 million and 27.1%, respectively, in the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $0.9 million and 26.8%, respectively, in the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Operating expenses were approximately $2.2 million, or 33% of revenues, for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $1.0 million, or 30.0% of revenues, in the comparable 2013 period. The increase was primarily attributable to new employees, higher technology testing and development costs and public company expenses. The Company generated an operating loss of $0.40 million in the three months ended 2014 compared to an operating loss of $0.10 million in the comparable 2013 period.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of approximately $0.04 million, (EBITDA defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, and one-time non-operational expense items). A reconciliation table of the adjusted EBITDA is provided below. The net loss for the three months ended June 30 2014 was $0.64 million compared to $0.37 million in the comparable 2013 period. HII Technologies had approximately 49.62 million shares outstanding at July 31, 2014.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Total assets increased from $10.2 million at December 31, 2013 to $20.6 million at June 30, 2014. The Company had $4.1 million outstanding under its existing $5 million revolving line of credit facility compared to $2.7 million at December 31, 2013. The Company had approximately $5.4 million in other indebtedness at June 30, 2014 as compared to $2.4 million at December 31, 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to conditional sales contracts related to additional equipment purchased.

Cash and cash equivalents were $1.7 million and total current assets were $10.7 million at June 30, 2014 compared to $0.9 million and $5.0 million at December 31, 2013, respectively. Net cash provided by operations improved $0.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to net cash used in operating activities of $0.4 million for the comparable 2013 period.

From June 21, 2014 through July 8, 2014, the Company sold 4,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock at a price of $1,000 per unit ("Units") for gross proceeds of $4,000,000. Each share of preferred stock received common stock warrants to purchase 500 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $1.00 per whole share exercisable for three years after issuance. At June 30, 2014, the Company had received $1,400,000 in gross proceeds. It received the remaining gross proceeds by July 8, 2014. Approximately $0.5 million of the proceeds were used to repay outstanding indebtedness under 10% promissory notes while $0.2 million were paid to registered broker-dealers involved with the Series A Preferred financing. The remaining proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes and to fund future growth opportunities.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements as to matters that are not of historic fact are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on HII's current expectations, estimates and projections about HII, its industry, its management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, and include statements regarding estimated capital expenditures, future operational and activity expectations, international growth, and anticipated financial performance in 2014. No assurance can be given that such expectations, estimates or projections will prove to have been correct. Whenever possible, these "forward-looking statements" are identified by words such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates" and similar phrases.

Readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict, including, but not limited to: risks that HII will be unable to achieve its financial, capital expenditure and operational projections, including quarterly and annual projections of revenue and/or operating income and risks that HII's expectations regarding future activity levels, customer demand, and pricing stability may not materialize (whether for HII as a whole or for geographic regions and/or business segments individually); risks that fundamentals in the U.S. oil and gas markets may not yield anticipated future growth in HII's businesses, or could further deteriorate or worsen from the recent market declines, and/or that HII could experience further unexpected declines in activity and demand for its hydraulic frac related water transfer business, its safety consultancy business or its generator and related equipment rental service businesses; risks relating to HII's ability to implement technological developments and enhancements; risks relating to compliance with environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, as well as actions by governmental and regulatory authorities; risks that HII may be unable to achieve the benefits expected from acquisition and disposition transactions, and risks associated with integration of the acquired operations into HII's operations; risks, in responding to changing or declining market conditions, that HII may not be able to reduce, and could even experience increases in, the costs of labor, fuel, equipment and supplies employed and used in HII's businesses; risks relating to changes in the demand for or the price of oil and natural gas; risks that HII may not be able to execute its capital expenditure program and/or that any such capital expenditure investments, if made, will not generate adequate returns; and other risks affecting HII's ability to maintain or improve operations, including its ability to maintain prices for services under market pricing pressures, weather risks, and the impact of potential increases in general and administrative expenses.

Because such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of HII's control, HII's actual results and performance may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Other important risk factors that may affect HII's business, results of operations and financial position are discussed in its most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K and in other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Unless otherwise required by law, HII also disclaims any obligation to update its view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made here. However, readers should review carefully reports and documents that HII files periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
