Shiloh Industries Reports Third-Quarter 2016 Results

VALLEY CITY, Ohio, Sept. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHLO), a leading global supplier of lightweighting, noise and vibration solutions, today reported financial results for its fiscal third-quarter 2016.

Third Quarter 2016 Highlights:

  • Revenue for the third quarter was $248.8 million, down from $266.1 million in the third quarter of 2015, due mainly to changes in customer production schedules and fewer shipping days in the quarter.
  • Gross margin for the third quarter increased 210 basis points to 9.7 percent compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2015 of 7.6 percent and sequentially expanded by 100 basis points.
  • Income before tax was $1.0 million with a net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per share, after higher tax expense compared with net income of $2.0 million, or $0.11 per share, in the third quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $17.2 million, resulting in an expanded adjusted EBITDA margin of 130 basis points compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2015.

"Our focus on providing leading lightweighting solutions and responsive service helped drive third quarter new business awards, which are expected to produce around $225 million of lifetime sales,” according to Ramzi Hermiz, president and chief executive officer. "We continue to make improvements in our operations as well. We generated $48 million in cash from operating activities year-to-date, helping to reduce long-term debt by $40 million since year end and we improved our margins. We remain positive given the underlying market need for lightweighting solutions and a cleaner environment, both of which are in full alignment with our strategy,” said Hermiz.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: “EBITDA,” “adjusted EBITDA," " adjusted EBITDA margin" and "adjusted earnings per share." We define EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation, amortization, and other adjustments as described in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues as shown in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. Adjusted earnings per share exclude certain income and expense items as shown in the reconciliation accompanying this press release. We use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share as supplements to information provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in evaluating our business and they are included in this press release because they are principal factors upon which our management assesses performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP measures presented in this release are not measures of performance under GAAP. These measures should not be considered as alternatives for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies in our industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies; and certain of our non-GAAP financial measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and other expenses in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
