ATRM Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results and Outlook for Second Half of Year

ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATRM Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATRM) (“ATRM” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended June 30, 2015 and its outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2015.


  • Negotiated $3.7 million reduction in debt and accrued interest.
  • Implemented organizational, process and contract improvements at KBS to boost commercial project performance.
  • Announced anticipated rights offering to reduce debt and strengthen balance sheet.
  • Expect increase in sales and improvement in operating results in second half of 2015.

Q2 2015 Summary:

KBS, the modular construction business acquired in April 2014, represents the Company’s continuing operations. Sales and other operating results related to the Company’s former test handler product line are included in results from discontinued operations in its consolidated statements of operations.

Net sales were $6.8 million for Q2 2015, compared to $12.4 million for the same quarter a year ago. Sales of single family homes increased to $6.3 million in Q2 2015 compared with $5.0 million in Q2 2014. Commercial sales decreased to $0.5 million in Q2 2015 compared with $7.4 million in Q2 2014. Commercial sales were significantly higher in Q2 of last year as two large projects in process at the time of the KBS acquisition were subsequently completed. In addition, due to site-preparation issues at a customer site, an order for $1.3 million in sales that was expected to be realized in Q2 2015 is now expected to be realized in the second half of 2015. All construction on this project required by KBS has been completed, but revenues will not be realized until the product is delivered. Since Q2 2014, KBS has worked to eliminate site-related work (electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, etc.) it performs because of losses on past commercial projects. KBS’ new strategy is to have its customers’ general contractors assume responsibility for site-related work while KBS focuses on its core competency of building modular units. We believe this strategy change will improve profit margins and reduce risk. Site-related revenue represented approximately $3.0 million of the decrease in commercial sales for Q2 2015 compared with Q2 2014. We believe that historically, site-related expenses exceeded site-related revenues resulting in substantial historical losses for KBS on some commercial projects.

Total costs and expenses for Q2 2015 decreased substantially to $7.7 million compared with $17.8 million for the same quarter in 2014:

  • Cost of sales for Q2 2015 decreased to $6.6 million from $11.6 million in Q2 2014 due primarily to the reduction in commercial sales and site work described above.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for Q2 2015 decreased to $1.1 million from $1.9 million in Q2 2014, due primarily to lower legal and professional costs. Such costs were higher in Q2 2014 due to the acquisition of KBS and the divestiture of the Company’s test handler product line.
  • Amortization expense in Q2 2015 associated with intangible assets received in the KBS acquisition decreased to approximately $60,000 compared with approximately $641,000 in Q2 2014. The higher expense in 2014 primarily included the amortization of purchased backlog that shipped in the quarter.
  • Goodwill impairment charge was $0 in Q2 2015 compared with approximately $3.7 million in Q2 2014.

Loss from continuing operations for Q2 2015 improved to approximately ($0.9 million) compared with approximately ($5.4 million) in Q2 2014. The loss in Q2 2014 included a goodwill impairment charge of $3.7 million.

The Company recorded a $3.7 million gain in Q2 2015 related to settling indemnity and other claims against the seller of KBS. The gain included a $3.2 million reduction in the principal balance of a promissory note and approximately $0.5 million in forgiven interest related to the note.

Interest expense for Q2 2015 increased to $0.4 million from $0.2 million in Q2 2014.

Net income for Q2 2015 was approximately $2.4 million, or $1.95 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of approximately ($4.8 million), or ($4.43) per diluted share, in Q2 2014.

Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2015:

  • Cash and cash equivalents increased to approximately $1.1 million compared with $0.7 million at March 31, 2015.
  • The Company’s interest-bearing debt decreased approximately $3.2 million to $12.8 million at June 30, 2015, compared with $16.0 million at March 31, 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to a reduction and restructuring of a note payable to the seller of KBS.

Management Comments:

“We had anticipated our second quarter net sales would increase over the first quarter due to weather-delayed first quarter shipments shifting to the second quarter,” said Dan Koch, ATRM’s president and chief executive officer. “In fact, sales of single family homes did increase 64% over the first quarter. However, the gain we made in sales of single family homes was largely offset by lower commercial sales. Specifically, a $1.3 million commercial project that was supposed to ship in Q2 is now expected to be delivered in the second half of 2015. As a result of this development, our second quarter sales of $6.8 million were flat with the first quarter. We expect sales in the second half of 2015 to exceed sales in the first half of 2015.”

“We are making significant progress in improving the KBS operations,” Mr. Koch continued. “The problems with several commercial projects that were under contract at the time of the acquisition have adversely impacted our gross margins, including our margins in Q2 2015, but have essentially been eradicated. We now have established standards and improved processes that we believe will help prevent similar issues in the future. We expect that our commercial projects will be significantly more profitable in the future due to the changes we have made. Also, while we have worked to improve our management of commercial projects, we have increased our sales of single family homes substantially. We believe we are positioned to achieve sales in the second half of 2015 of at least $16 million with continued improvement in gross margins and operating results.”

Jeff Eberwein, Chairman of ATRM’s board of directors, commented, “We are very pleased to have reached a settlement agreement with the seller of KBS that reduced our debt significantly. We expect to complete a rights offering of our common stock next month that will allow us to further reduce our debt and strengthen our balance sheet. While the KBS turn-around has taken longer than anticipated, we continue to believe it is a good business in a growing industry and, with its current factory capacity, KBS capable of generating approximately $40 million in annualized revenues and achieving operating margins of five to ten percent or more.”
