AETI announces Q2 results

Share:

HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Electric Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:AETI), a leading supplier of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, today announced its second quarter 2018 financial results.

As a result of the Company's previously-announced agreement to sell the U.S. based assets of its M&I subsidiary, the assets and liabilities of that business are classified as "held for sale" in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and the current and historical operating results related to those assets are reported as income or loss from discontinued operations in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

For the 2018 quarter, the Company reported revenue, which related to its Brazilian subsidiary, of $2.1 million, up 56% compared with the $1.3M in the 2nd quarter of 2017 and up from $1.9M in Q1 2018. This increase was primarily due to increased service revenue for the Brazilian oil and gas market as well as a product project executed in Brazil for a South American customer.  

The Company's China joint venture, BOMAY, saw Q2 2018 revenue grow 76% to $12.2M from $6.8M in the same 2017 quarter and up from $8.1M in Q1 of this year. AETI owns 40% of BOMAY and does not consolidate revenue but reports BOMAY's income as Equity Income from Foreign Joint Ventures. The Chinese oil and gas market is expected to see strong growth over the next several years as CNPC (BOMAY Joint Venture partner BOMCO's parent company) has announced plans to invest more than $22B in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region, offsetting declining production in the Daqing oil region and increasing production of domestic natural gas to wean China away from coal-based power generation.

The Company reported Q2 EBITDA on continued operations (a non-U.S. GAAP measure) of $.2 million for the quarter, compared with an EBITDA loss of $.2 million in Q1 of 2017 and an EBITDA breakeven in Q1 2018.

"Our results highlight the growth and profit potential represented by our Brazilian and Chinese interests. The growth in the global oil and gas markets drove strong topline growth in both Brazil and our Chinese joint venture in the quarter" said Charles Dauber, AETI president and chief executive officer.

AETI is headquartered in Houston and has global sales, support and manufacturing operations in Rio de Janeiro, Macaé and Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  In addition, AETI has minority interest in a joint venture in Xian, China.
