LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, Nov. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. (the "Company" or “Omni-Lite”; TSXV: OML; OTCQX: OLNCF) today reported results for the fiscal third quarter ending September 30, 2022. Full financial results are available at sedar.com.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results
Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was approximately US$3.2 million, an increase of 29% on a quarterly sequential basis and an increase of 95% as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in revenue was due both to organic growth and the contribution from Designed Precision Castings Inc. (“DP Cast”) acquisition in December 2021. Excluding the acquisition of DP Cast, revenue increased 21% as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2021, principally due to increased demand for commercial aerospace fasteners and electronic components. Adjusted EBITDA (1) was US$4,177 compared to US$(65,877) in the third quarter 2021, and US$(487,224) in the second quarter 2022, respectively. The year-over-year, and quarterly sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA (1) was a result of operational execution, bookings conversion leading to higher revenue, partially offset by the acquisition of DP Cast and additional operational lease expense associated with the sale and leaseback of the Company’s Cerritos facility. Free Cash Flow (1) was US$(614,878) in the fiscal third quarter, as compared to US$(236,177) in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 and US$(554,752) in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. The decrease in free cash flow in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to year ago period was due to an increase in accounts receivable resulting from increasing production and revenue generation, which is expected to be collected in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. In the nine-month ending September 30, 2022, the Company’s free cash flow was US$(1,353,070), which attributed to use of US$434,615 in capital expenditures for improvements in the manufacturing process as well as a non-recurring capital gain tax payments related to the 2021 sale of the Company’s Cerritos facility of US$560,000.
Fiscal third quarter 2022 bookings were US$3.2 million, and on a year-to-date basis, bookings were US$9.6 million, translating to a book-to-bill ratio of 1.2. Bookings in the quarter were up 28% over first quarter of fiscal 2022 bookings and remained consistent with the second quarter of fiscal 2022 performance. Omni-Lite ended the fiscal third quarter 2022 with a backlog of US$3.7 million. The Company expects approximately 80% this backlog to ship within the remainder of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022.
The Company’s liquidity position remains strong with the Company ending the third quarter of fiscal 2022 with approximately US$1.4 million in cash and no indebtedness outstanding.
David Robbins, Omni-Lite’s CEO, stated “the third quarter sequential and year-over-year revenue increases are a result of growth from the newly-acquired DP Cast’s business as well as demand for commercial aerospace products and defense electronics. New product starts in forging, electronics and casting were significant contributions in bookings and revenue in the quarter and points to continued growth. We have made significant progress integrating business systems and implementing manufacturing automation initiatives at DP Cast, and expect to see improvements in profitability for all of Omni-Lite in the coming quarters.”

(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. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-IFRS financial measure defined as Free Cash Flow excluding, if any, gains (losses) on sale of assets and non-recurring items. 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, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted 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, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted 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, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow internally to evaluate the operating performance of the Company, to allocate resources and capital, and to evaluate future growth opportunities.
