"We delivered strong top-line results in the second quarter and materially advanced our long term strategy with the highly synergistic and accretive acquisition of Intasco while addressing short-term challenges that impacted our bottom-line results," said John Weinhardt, Chief Executive Officer. "During the second quarter, the automotive industry saw a shift in the mix of new vehicle sales and experienced a short-term slowdown in production shortly after we accelerated investments for new equipment and additional labor to support new product launches, negatively impacting our margins. Our second quarter results also reflect one-time expenses related to the Intasco acquisition, lowering our earnings. Our bookings continue to expand giving us good visibility and confidence that the investments we made to scale production will benefit our operations beginning in the third quarter."

"Operationally, we expect to improve our labor productivity following this industry shift as the result of new product launches and expect our margins will return to more normalized levels beginning in the third quarter," Weinhardt added. "Additionally, we are advancing the integration of Intasco as planned, and we are already beginning to recognize cross-selling opportunities within our combined customer bases."

Weinhardt concluded, "Looking forward, we remain confident in our full year outlook and are reaffirming our most recent full-year outlook which was increased on July 5 to reflect the expected contribution from Intasco. This upwardly revised outlook is based on our current visibility and the most recent revised independent automotive industry production projections we utilize in our planning."

Second Quarter Financial Summary

Total revenue for the quarter ended July 3, 2016 increased to $42.0 million, up 17.9%, or $6.4 million from $35.7 million during the same period last year. The increase was driven by the acquisitions of Intasco which closed on April 29, 2016 and Great Lakes Foam Technologies, Inc. which closed on August 31, 2015, as well as from the introduction of new products and increased market penetration.

Gross profit for the quarter period ended July 3, 2016 was $9.1 million, or 21.6% of total revenue, compared to $8.4 million, or 23.6% of total revenues, for the corresponding period last year. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of sales was primarily due to the amortization of the markup to fair market value of the inventory acquired from Intasco, increases in health insurance claims paid under Unique's self-insured benefits plan, depreciation, and labor costs as the Company adds capacity and makes investments to meet expected future demand, and continuous improvement related costs that management expects to benefit Unique in future quarters, coupled with the mix shift in new vehicle sales and lower than anticipated overall vehicle production volumes.

Net income for the quarter ended July 3, 2016 was $0.6 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, compared to $1.7 million, or $0.25 per basic and $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. In addition to the one-time costs incurred in the Intasco acquisition, including debt extinguishment costs related to the termination of our old credit facility, net income for the quarter ended July 3, 2016 was also negatively impacted by an unfavorable $0.2 million mark-to-market on an interest rate swap we entered into just prior to the unexpected result of the Brexit vote, and by a significantly higher effective tax rate due mainly to non-deductible transaction related costs.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended July 3, 2016 was $4.3 million compared to $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily a result of earnings generated from higher sales, offset by the higher operating expenses noted above. Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP results.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended July 3, 2016 was $0.14 compared to $0.24 in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease is primarily a result of lower earnings, and by an increase in shares outstanding as a result of the company's initial public offering in July 2015. The diluted weighted average shares outstanding increased from approximately 7.0 million at the end of the second quarter last year to approximately 9.9 million this year. Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP results.

Further non-cash purchase accounting impacts associated with the Company's acquisitions are detailed in the Purchase Accounting Impacts and Other Effects table below accompanying this release.

Year to Date Financial Summary

In the first six months of 2016, Unique's results were for a 26 week period ended July 3, 2016 compared to a 25 week period ended June 28, 2015. As a result, the two periods may not be directly comparable.

Total revenue for the first six months of 2016 increased to $82.0 million, up 20.5%, or $13.9 million from $68.1 million during the same period last year. The increase was primarily related to the acquisitions of Intasco which closed on April 29, 2016 and Great Lakes Foam Technologies, Inc. which closed on August 31, 2015, as well as from the introduction of new products and increased market penetration.

Gross profit for the first six months of 2016 was $18.7 million, or 22.8% of total revenue, compared to $16.4 million, or 24.0% of total revenues, in the comparable period last year. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of  sales is mainly due to lower margins in the second quarter of 2016, as described above.

Net income for the first six months of 2016 was $2.4 million, or $0.25 per basic and diluted share, compared to $2.9 million, or $0.43 per basic and $0.41 per diluted share, in the comparable period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2016 was $8.7 million compared to $7.8 million in the same period last year. The increase is primarily a result of earnings generated from higher sales in this year, offset by the increases in operating expenses noted above. Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP results.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the first six months of 2016 was $0.35 compared to $0.41 in the same period last year. The decrease is primarily a result an increase in shares outstanding as a result of the company's initial public offering in July 2015. The diluted weighted average shares outstanding increased from approximately 7.0 million in the first six months last year to approximately 9.9 million this year. The impact of the higher shares in 2016 were partially offset by earnings generated from higher sales for the first six months of 2016. Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP results.

Further non-cash purchase accounting impacts associated with the Company's acquisitions are detailed in the Purchase Accounting Impacts and Other Effects table below accompanying this release.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share in this press release to provide a supplemental measure of our operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, non-recurring integration expense, non-cash stock awards, transaction fees related to our acquisitions, and restructuring expenses. We calculate Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share based upon earnings before non-cash stock awards, non-recurring expenses, transaction fees, and restructuring expenses, including the tax impact associated with these adjusting items. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share are useful performance measures used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance and earnings on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) can provide alone. Our board and management also use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary methods for planning and forecasting overall expected performance and for evaluating on a quarterly and annual basis actual results against such expectations, and as a performance evaluation metric in determining achievement of certain compensation programs and plans for Company management. In addition, the financial covenants in our senior secured credit facility are based on Adjusted EBITDA, as presented in this press release, subject to dollar limitations on certain adjustments. These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and these measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for analysis of Unique Fabricating's results as reported under GAAP.
