Rocco Campanelli, President and Chief Executive Officer of RCM Technologies, commented, “We are very pleased with our results in the third quarter of 2017 as revenue, gross profit and operating income grew by 10%, 16% and 278%, respectively, as compared to third quarter 2016. Our Engineering Group achieved its second highest quarterly gross profit in history and best amount in the past three years. Our Health Care division, which experiences significant seasonality in the third quarter due to summer school closings, set new third quarter records for both revenues and gross profit, growing both over 2016 by approximately 19% and 13%, respectively. Much more importantly, we started strong with our new 2017/2018 school contracts. Our robust start to the new school year should result in solid year-over-year growth for our Health Care division in fiscal 2018. We believe that the consolidated results for the fourth quarter of 2017 will be our best quarter this year. We are excited about finishing 2017 on a high note as we head into fiscal 2018.”

Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer of RCM Technologies, added, “We continue to exhibit good cash flow, generating $1.6 million in cash provided by operating activities in our third quarter and $7.0 million year to date through September 30, 2017. We expect to continue to have nice cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2017 and expect to post our best quarterly operating income of 2017.”

Conference Call
On Thursday, November 2, 2017, RCM Technologies will host a conference call to discuss these results. The call will begin at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The dial-in number is (877) 331-7677.

Supplemental Operating Results on a Non-GAAP Basis
(Unaudited)
(In Thousands)

The following non-GAAP data, which adjusts for the categories of expenses described below, primarily changes in contingent consideration, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Our management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful information for investors, shareholders and other stakeholders of our company in gauging our results of operations on an ongoing basis. We believe that EBITDA is a performance measure and not a liquidity measure, and therefore have provided a reconciliation between net income and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of performance. In addition, EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. We do not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The following unaudited table presents the Company's GAAP Net Income measure and the corresponding adjustments used to calculate “EBITDA”, “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Adjusted Net Income” and “Diluted EPS” for the thirteen weeks and thirty-nine weeks ended September 30, 2017 and October 1, 2016.
