LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. (the "Company" or “Omni-Lite”; TSXV: OML) today reported results for the fiscal third quarter ending September 30, 2021. Full financial results are available at sedar.com.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was approximately US$1.6 million, an increase of approximately 36% as compared to the second quarter of 2021, and flat as compared to the third quarter of 2020. The increase in revenue compared to the second quarter of 2021 was due to increases in commercial aerospace and defense electronics revenue. Backlog increased from US$1.7 million at end of the second quarter fiscal 2021 to US$1.8 million at the end of third quarter fiscal 2021, driven by a book-to-bill ratio of [1.06]. Adjusted EBITDA(1) loss of approximately US$(66,000) was an improvement of US$192,000 over the second quarter of 2021 and an improvement of US$206,000, or a 76% reduction, as compared to the third quarter of 2020. Free Cash Flow(1) was a use approximately US$236,000 in the third quarter, as compared to a use of approximately US$93,000 in the second quarter of 2021, driven primarily by increased working capital resulting from sequential quarterly revenue increase.
Subsequent to the Company’s fiscal 2021 third quarter end, Omni-Lite was awarded firm orders valued in excess of US$250,000 for military-use forged components used in consumable munition applications. The delivery of these orders is expected to occur over the next two years with the potential for follow-on contract opportunities. A key aspect of these contract wins was the Company‘s expansion of its sales channels in the European defense market with the appointment of a new reseller partner that could lead to further penetration of defense and commercial customer accounts in this strategic market for Omni-Lite.
David Robbins, Omni-Lite’s CEO, stated "Omni-Lite Industries sales in third quarter fiscal year 2021 reflected the start of some recovery in the commercial aerospace market and an increase in defense electronics platform wins. A continuation of these trends including the expansion in the broader European markets would enable the Company to return to normalized positive adjusted EBITDA margins. We continue to focus on operational efficiency and performance and look to capitalize on increased needs for reliable suppliers to support production needs; and, our balance sheet and liquidity position remains strong. The Company ended the third quarter of fiscal 2021 with approximately US$1.4 million in cash and approximately US$1.5 million available under its revolving credit facility. We continue to evaluate M&A opportunities and are progressing with our efforts to monetize our real estate holding to fuel potential in this area,” remarked, Mr. Robbins.

Free Cash Flow(1)
(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation provision, gains (losses) on sale of assets, and non-recurring items, if any. Free Cash Flow is a non-IFRS financial measure defined as cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures. These are non-IFRS financial measures, as defined herein, and should be read in conjunction with IFRS financial measures and they are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. The non-IFRS financial measures as used herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We believe the use of Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow along with IFRS financial measures enhances the understanding of our operating results and may be useful to investors in comparing our operating performance with that of other companies and estimating our enterprise value. Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are also useful tools in evaluating the operating results of the Company given the significant variation that can result from; for example, the timing of capital expenditures and the amount of working capital in support of our customer programs and contracts. We also use Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow internally to evaluate the operating performance of the Company, to allocate resources and capital, and to evaluate future growth opportunities.
