ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (“ARC” and the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, today reported its results for the period ending January 1, 2017, its fiscal second quarter 2017.
Highlights for the fiscal second quarter 2017, compared to the fiscal second quarter 2016:
  • Revenue of $28.2 million, an increase of 18.3%;
  • Gross profit of $4.8 million, an increase of 16.3%; and
  • Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations of $3.5 million, an increase of 9.6%.

Quarterly Summary
Fiscal second quarter 2017 revenue was $28.2 million, an 18.3% increase compared to the fiscal second quarter of 2016, and the fifth sequential quarter of organic revenue growth from continuing operations. The growth in sales reflects the progress in our customer-centric efforts, as well as continued strength in the firearms and defense industries.
Gross profit for the period was $4.8 million, an increase of 16.3%. The increase was due to higher production volume and improved production efficiencies.
Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations for the fiscal second quarter was $3.5 million, an increase of 9.6% compared to the prior year period of $3.2 million. While Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations increased, related margins were partially impacted by start-up costs associated with new program launches and increased investments designed to accelerate the new product development launch cycle.
Net loss of $0.7 million for the fiscal second quarter was comparable to the net loss in the prior year period of $0.6 million.
Management Commentary
Jason Young, CEO, commented, “While strength in the firearm and defense industries helped drive growth in the quarter, we continue to see momentum with our customer-centric initiatives. Further, our focus on accelerating speed-to-market for our customers continues to be core to their needs. While these initiatives have temporarily impacted margins, our recent successful launch of numerous new programs validates the business model, and we believe these efforts should translate into increased margin opportunities in the future.”
GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation
The Company has provided non-GAAP financial information to provide additional, meaningful comparisons of current results to prior periods’ results by excluding items that the Company does not believe are representative or indicative of its results of operations. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Specifically, EBITDA from Continuing Operations, EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations, Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations, Facility EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusted Earnings, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations and Facility EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations are calculated by dividing EBITDA from Continuing Operations and Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations, respectively, by sales.
The reconciliation to GAAP is as follows (dollars in thousands):

EBITDA from Continuing Operations excludes interest expense, net and income taxes as these items are associated with our capitalization and tax structures. EBITDA from Continuing Operations also excludes depreciation and amortization expense as these non-cash expenses reflect the impact of prior capital expenditure decisions, which may not be indicative of future capital expenditure requirements. EBITDA from Continuing Operations excludes the EBITDA associated with discontinued operations.
Facility EBITDA from Continuing Operations consists of EBITDA from our operating segments. We believe this is a meaningful measurement of the operating performance of our manufacturing facilities. Corporate expenses primarily consist of costs not allocated to our manufacturing facilities, such as compensation related costs for employees assigned to corporate, board of directors fees and expenses, professional fees, insurance costs, and marketing costs.
Adjusted Earnings removes the impact of reorganization/transaction related expenses, other non-recurring gains/expenses, and the impact of discontinued operations. Reorganization expenses are primarily labor and labor related costs associated with the termination of employees and inventory write-downs as allowed by the Company’s bank debt covenants. Transaction expenses are primarily professional fees related to the refinancing of debt and the sale of non-core assets.
