Share:

PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RCM Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGM: RCMT), a premier provider of business and technology solutions designed to enhance and maximize the operational performance of its customers through the adaptation and deployment of advanced engineering, specialty health care and information technology services, today announced financial results for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 30, 2018.

RCM Technologies reported revenues of $51.7 million for the thirteen week period ended June 30, 2018, a 13.6% increase as compared to $45.5 million for the thirteen week period ended July 1, 2017 (the comparable prior year period). Gross profit was $12.7 million for the thirteen week period ended June 30, 2018, a 5.1% increase as compared to $12.1 million for the comparable prior year period.  The Company experienced operating income of $0.9 million for the current quarter as compared to $0.8 million for the comparable prior year period.  Net income was $0.4 million, or $0.3 per diluted share, for the current quarter as compared to net income of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period.

RCM Technologies reported revenues of $102.5 million for the twenty-six week period ended June 30, 2018, a 11.6% increase as compared to $91.9 million for the twenty-six week period ended July 1, 2017 (the comparable prior year period). Gross profit was $25.3 million for the twenty-six week period ended June 30, 2018, a 6.0% increase as compared to $23.9 million for the comparable prior year period.  The Company experienced operating income of $2.6 million for the current quarter as compared to $1.9 million for the comparable prior year period. Net income was $1.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the current quarter as compared to net income of $0.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period.

The Company had adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $2.7 million for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2018, a 30.5% increase as compared to $2.0 million for the comparable prior year period.  The Company had adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $4.8 million for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2018, a 38.0% increase as compared to $3.5 million for the comparable prior year period.  A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to EBITDA (non-GAAP) and net income (GAAP) can be found on the fourth page of this press release.

The Company experienced $1.4 million in severance, professional fees and other charges for both the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 30, 2018.  These charges include severance accrued for the Company's former chief executive officer and related payroll taxes, continuation of certain benefits and professional fees, totaling approximately $0.9 million.  The additional charges of $0.5 million incurred related to transactional financial advisory fees, legal fees associated with defending a frivolous lawsuit with a competitor of the Company, and search fees associated with hiring a senior executive.  The Company did not incur any such charges in the comparable prior year period. The Company incurred charges of $0.8 million for increases to contingent consideration for both the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended July 1, 2017.  The increase can be principally attributed to the PCI acquisition.  Since the PCI acquisition was for stock in Canada the increase in purchase price is not tax deductible and is treated as a permanent difference. There was no change to contingent consideration for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 30, 2018.

Bradley Vizi, Executive Chairman of RCM Technologies, commented, "We are pleased with our 2018 consolidated second quarter results.  We posted our third consecutive quarter with revenues exceeding $50 million. Our second quarter revenues of $51.7 million are the highest quarterly revenues we've seen in at least fifteen years.  We are confident our fiscal 2018 revenues will exceed $200 million. We are pleased to see our adjusted EBITDA for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 30, 2018 of $2.6 million and $4.8 million, respectively, grow by approximately 30% and 38%, respectively, over the comparable prior year periods."

Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer of RCM Technologies, added, "We generated $3.4 million in cash flow from operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2018, reducing our line of credit to $29.2 million as of June 30, 2018 from $32.0 million as of March 31, 2018.  We anticipate better cash flow in the third quarter as we've seen strong accounts receivable collections so far in July and August."

Conference Call
On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, 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 (800) 285-6670.

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, 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 and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures and have provided a reconciliation between net income and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.  Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA should be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of performance.  In addition, neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA takes 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" and "Adjusted EBITDA" for the thirteen weeks and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2018 and July 1, 2017.
