For the three-month period ended and as at June 30, 2018, Mosaic:

  • increased revenue by 31% over the same period in 2017, largely driven by the acquisition of Circle 5 and Cedar as well as improved operating conditions and market share gains for our portfolio companies in the Infrastructure segment;

  • generated Adjusted EBITDA of $6.1 million, an increase of 15% over the prior year period, which was supported by the operating leverage in certain of our portfolio companies and a reduction in corporate overhead expenses;

  • provided dividends of $1.1 million to our shareholders; 

  • delivered a trailing twelve-month Combined Payout Ratio of 147%, which was an improvement from the trailing twelve-month ratio of 158% in Q2 2017; and

  • maintained a healthy balance sheet with $14.9 million in cash, $67.0 million in working capital and Total Debt to EBITDA leverage of 1.82.

Outlook

Mosaic's second quarter 2018 results illustrate a sequential improvement over the first quarter of 2018 and a 15% year-over-year gain in Adjusted EBITDA.  Notwithstanding these improvements, Mosaic's second quarter results remain below management's estimation of the Company's full capability.  While most portfolio companies in the Infrastructure segment delivered strong gains, the seasonal uptick for certain others did not occur as quickly as anticipated.  Compounding this, we faced temporary, yet unfavourable product mix for certain companies in our Diversified segment and the Energy segment continued to experience challenges related to wide commodity price differentials in Canada and intense competition levels in the U.S. market.  

As we progress further into 2018, we see continued seasonal ramping of activity levels with corresponding improvements in our monthly results.  This trend should support sequential and year-over-year EBITDA growth in the second half of 2018 as our portfolio companies work through a large backlog of projects in the queue.

Mark Gardhouse, CEO commented "While Mosaic's second quarter results mark a meaningful improvement over prior periods, we believe there is much work ahead for our team to optimize the profitability of our underlying portfolio.  The entire team at Mosaic has re-invigorated its approach to identify and solve near term operational challenges while building out the appropriate strategies to secure longer-term growth opportunities.  We look forward to the successful deployment of these initiatives and to demonstrate the more comprehensive cash flow capability of our portfolio as we progress further into the year.  In the interim, we remain committed to the current dividend policy which we feel is well supported by the positive outlook we have for our profitability levels and free cash flow generation."

Mosaic's growth strategy is centered on the acquisition of controlling equity interests in new portfolio companies with a specific focus on growing Free Cash Flow per share while maintaining a strong balance sheet.  Supplementing this, Mosaic's management team adds value with operational and strategic focus by actively engaging with its portfolio companies to build long-term value.

Mosaic's pipeline of high quality acquisition opportunities remains robust and the Company will continue to pursue its strategy to grow through acquisitions with a focus on building an increasingly diversified portfolio of private, mid-market companies that offer strong Free Cash Flow while maintaining a healthy balance sheet.
