Quarter Ended June 30, 2018

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, total revenue was $36.5 million, compared to $43.3 million in Q2 2017. Despite a significant increase in our backlog, our revenue decreased primarily due to lower product deliveries, not resulting from lost opportunities, but as a result of project delays, which have moved to the second half of 2018. Gross profit was $11.8 million and $14.2 million, and gross profit margins were 32% and 33%, for the second quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $1.7 million compared to $3.2 million for the comparable period in 2017. The Company reported an operating loss of $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to operating income of $0.1 million in the same period in 2017, as a result of lower revenue.

Reported GAAP net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $2.2 million compared to a net loss of $0.7 million for the comparable period in 2017, and reflects the aforementioned. Basic and diluted GAAP loss per share attributable to common stockholders was $0.10 for the second quarter 2018 as compared to a net loss per share of $0.03 for the second quarter 2017. Excluding the one-time acquisition, work force reductions and stock-based compensation, the non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.04 for Q2 2018 compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.03 for Q2 2017.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2018
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, total revenue was $70.2 million, compared to $73.9 million in 2017 reflecting lower revenue in the second quarter, as noted above. Gross profit was $23.3 million and $24.3 million for the first half of 2018 and 2017, respectively. Gross margin was 33% for both periods.

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $2.7 million compared to $2.8 million for the comparable period in 2017. The Company reported an operating loss of $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to an operating loss of $4.1 million in the same period in 2017, as a result of decreased expenses.

Reported GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $4.4 million compared to a net loss of $5.7 million for the comparable period in 2017, and reflects the aforementioned. Basic and diluted GAAP loss per share attributable to common stockholders was $0.20 for the 2018 as compared to a net loss per share of $0.27 for 2017. Excluding the one-time acquisition, work force reductions and stock-based compensation, the non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.10 for 2018 compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $0.12 for 2017.

Liquidity Position
Cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2018, excluding interest, was $9.2 million and primarily reflects modest increases in current assets, offset by decreased accounts payable and accrued liabilities.  As of June 30, 2018, our availability, including cash, under our Revolving Credit Facility was approximately $2.5 million.

Non-GAAP Measures 

Management uses non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA as non-U.S. GAAP measures of financial performance. We consider these non-GAAP measures to be important indicators of our operational strength and performance, and a useful measure of historical and prospective trends. However, there are significant limitations of the use of these non-GAAP measures since they exclude acquisition related charges and stock-based compensation, both of which affect profitability. We believe that these limitations are compensated by providing these non-GAAP measures along with U.S. GAAP performance measures and clearly identifying the differences between the two measures.
Consequently, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss) or net income (loss) per share presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Moreover, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA as defined by Revolution Lighting may not be comparable to similarly titled measures provided by other entities. These non-GAAP measures are provided to investors to supplement the results of operations reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful to help investors analyze the operating trends in the business and to assess the relative underlying performance of the business. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our financial results with other companies that use non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA in their communications with investors. Management also uses non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA to evaluate potential acquisitions establish internal budgets and goals and evaluate the performance of business units and management.

A reconciliation of Revolution Lighting GAAP net income (loss) to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ending June 30, 2018 and 2017 respectively follows:
