GEDERA, Israel, Aug. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TAT Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: TATT - News) ("TAT" or the "Company"), a leading provider of products and services to the commercial and military aerospace and ground defense industries, reported today its unaudited results for the three month and six month periods ended June 30, 2017.
Key Financial Highlights:
Revenues for Q2 2017 were $26.6 million compared with $23.5 million in Q2 2016, a 13.2% growth. Revenues for H1 2017 were $53.6 million compared with $47.2 million in H1 2016, a 13.6% growth.
Profitability showed significant improvement, both quarter-over-quarter and first half-over-first half:
Last Twelve Months ("LTM") results for the period ended June 30, 2017 improved with revenues of $102.3 million compared to $90.8 million in the LTM period ended June 30, 2016, a growth of 12.7%. Adjusted EBITDA for the LTM period ended June 30, 2017 was $10.9 million compared to $2.5 million in the LTM period ended June 30, 2016, a growth of 336%.
Mr. Igal Zamir, CEO and President of TAT Technologies stated, "Our second quarter results reflect the continued implementation of the Company's plan to improve efficiencies and cost reduction. This is the fourth consecutive quarter in which we demonstrate consistent and significant improvement resulting from streamlining operations, leveraging additional synergies between our various business activities and having certain new marketing processes. In addition, we are systematically focusing on tenders that guarantee present profitability compared to those that characterized our past activities, as reflected in the change of our product mix."
Mr. Zamir added, "The aviation industry is benefiting from an increase in fleet sizes as well as passenger traffic on the one hand and low fuel prices on the other; we are working to leverage these trends in order to strengthen our business and competitive position. We are thrilled that the 14% sales growth was achieved concurrently with a decrease in operating expenses, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA doubling in the first six months of 2017 compared to the comparable period in 2016. The Adjusted EBITDA ratio also grew to more than 9% of total revenues during this period. We believe that our long term strategy will enable TAT to better utilize business opportunities and maintain our growth momentum."
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company also presents a Non-GAAP presentation of Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA. The adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results, trends and performance. Non-GAAP Net Income excludes changes, income or losses, as applicable, related to one or more of the following: (1) share-based compensation expenses and/or (2) certain tax impact and/or (3) acquisition related expenses and/or (4) share in results of equity investment of affiliated companies. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before the Company's share in results and sale of equity investment of affiliated companies, share-based compensation, taxes on income, financial (expenses) income, net, and depreciation and amortization. Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA, however, should not be considered as alternatives to net income and operating income for the period and may not be indicative of the historic operating results of the Company; nor they are meant to be predictive of potential future results. Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. See reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA in pages 7 and 11 below.
