Industrial Services of America, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results and New Credit Facility

November 13, 2018

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Industrial Services of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSA), (the “Company” or “ISA”), a company that buys, processes and markets ferrous and non-ferrous metals and other recyclable commodities, and buys used autos in order to sell used auto parts, today announced the filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

ISA reported a 15.9% revenue increase and a $1.2 million improvement in net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.

The Company reported net income of $356 thousand for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to a net loss of $825 thousand for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Further, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $2.3 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018, which marks a substantial improvement compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $1.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017. This improvement in operating performance was due in part to the successful restart of the Company’s shredder in May 2017 as well as improvements in the Company’s ferrous volumes and margins from 2017 to 2018. The restart of the Company’s shredder led to favorable sales mix and improved margins. Net income was further strengthened by a non-recurring insurance settlement gain in the amount of $487 thousand during the second quarter of 2018. This amount is excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. (See Non-GAAP Measures below.)

The Company reported a net loss of $477 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to a net loss of $177 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Further, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $363 thousand during the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $647 thousand during the three months ended September 30, 2017. The Company’s results were negatively impacted during the third quarter of 2018 by recent global political events, such as tariffs, trade wars and other global economic events. Ferrous market prices and volumes were negatively impacted by economic stress in Turkey, one of the largest importers of United States ferrous scrap metal. Pricing and volumes were further challenged by uncertainty created by tariffs and threatened trade wars. Non-ferrous market prices and volumes were similarly impacted by tariffs and threatened trade wars, as well as certain restrictions placed by China on imported metals.

ISA announces that the Company refinanced its working capital line of credit with a new $10.0 million revolving line of credit and a $2.5 million term loan. The interest rate on the Revolving Loan is equal to LIBOR plus 2.25% to 2.75% depending on financial performance. The interest rate on the Term Loan is equal to LIBOR plus 2.75% to 3.25% depending on financial performance.

Todd L. Phillips, Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Financial Officer of ISA, commented, “We are very excited to work with Bank of America with our new credit facility.”

Non-GAAP Measures

The information provided above in this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. In accordance with SEC rules, the Company has provided, in the supplemental information below, a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. To provide additional information regarding the Company’s results, the Company has disclosed in this press release Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, interest expense, including loan fee amortization, gain on sale of assets, gain on insurance proceeds, other income (expense), net, and income tax provision. The Company has included Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure in this press release as it is a key measure used by management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate the core operating performance of the Company, to prepare budgets and operating plans, and because management believes such measure provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is also used in certain covenants contained in the Company’s credit agreement. However, use of Adjusted EBITDA as an analytic tool has its limitations and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s financial results as reported under GAAP, including net income (loss), gross profit, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. The following table presents the reconciliation between net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA.
