DELAND, FL--(Marketwired - November 05, 2015) - ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. ("ARC" and the "Company") (NASDAQ: ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, today reported its first quarter fiscal year 2016 (September 27, 2015) results.

Fiscal First Quarter Results

Fiscal first quarter revenue was $24.5 million, a decrease of 14.7% compared to the prior year period. The decrease was due to lower sales to European automotive customers and delayed U.S. product launches, as well as macro and customer attrition issues. At the same time, 3DMT Group reported record metal 3D printing revenue during the first fiscal quarter. EBITDA for the fiscal year first quarter was $2.6 million, a decrease of 27.1% compared to the prior year period. EBITDA margin decreased to 10.8%, from 12.6% in the prior year period, primarily related to lower plant level utilization. While near term headwinds remain, Management is optimistic about the medium to long term forecast for the Company.

ARC Announces New Senior Leadership Hire

ARC has hired Mr. Stuart Gold in a newly created position, as Executive Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing for the Company. Mr. Gold brings a strong track record of success in sales and marketing, most recently at a private equity-backed educational technology company, as well as previous leadership roles in sales and marketing at companies such as Cendant, Cisco, and Microsoft.

Jason Young, Chairman and CEO, commented, "While we were disappointed in the performance of the business in the first fiscal quarter, we remain optimistic about the future of ARC. Driving sales is an important focus for the Company, and we are excited to have Mr. Gold join ARC to lead that effort."

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

EBITDA and EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by sales. We have provided this non-GAAP financial information to aid in better understanding the Company's performance absent these charges. 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.

The reconciliation to GAAP is as follows (in thousands):

For the three months ended:  September 27, 2015   September 28, 2014
Net (Loss) Income (GAAP)  $(441 ) $232
 Plus: Interest Expense, Net   1,141    921
 Plus: Income Tax (Benefit) Expense   (426 )  153
 Plus: Depreciation and Amortization   2,362    2,311
EBITDA (Non-GAAP)  $2,636   $3,617
EBITDA Margin (Non-GAAP)   10.8%    12.6%

EBITDA excludes interest expense, net and income taxes as these items are associated with our capitalization and tax structures. EBITDA 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.
