ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Aug 15, 2016) - ATRM Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: ATRM) ("ATRM" or the "Company") today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016 and its outlook for the remainder of fiscal year 2016.

Company Operations:

The modular construction business based in South Paris, Maine and operated by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, KBS Builders, Inc. ("KBS"), represents ATRM's primary operations.

Second Quarter 2016 Results:

Net sales were approximately $5.9 million in Q2 2016, compared to $6.8 million in Q2 2015. Residential sales declined to $5.0 million in Q2 2016 compared with $6.3 million in Q2 2015. Commercial sales increased to $0.9 million in Q2 2016 from $0.5 million in Q2 2015. Residential and commercial sales represented 85% and 15%, respectively, of total net sales in Q2 2016 compared with 93% and 7%, respectively, of total net sales in Q2 2015. The decrease in residential sales over the prior-year period was due to lower production levels. The Company only operated its South Paris, Maine factory until its order backlog was sufficient to re-open its second factory nearby in Waterford, Maine, which had been closed for the slower winter months. Commercial sales in Q2 2016 included $0.7 million for a multi-tenant building that was completed in June 2016. This successful commercial project was consistent with the Company's previously announced strategy to reduce or eliminate the site-related work (electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, etc. work done on site) it performs on commercial projects. The Company continues to believe this strategy will improve profit margins and reduce risk on commercial projects in the future. This strategic transition is complete and the Company expects commercial sales will increase during the remainder of fiscal year 2016.

Total costs and expenses decreased to $6.6 million in Q2 2016 compared with $7.7 million in Q2 2015:

  • Cost of sales decreased to $5.4 million in Q2 2016 from $6.6 million in Q2 2015, due primarily to the decrease in overall sales. Cost of sales in Q2 2016 was high relative to net sales due to inefficiencies of the lower sales volume and costs incurred related to bringing the Company's Waterford factory back up to full production level in anticipation of the peak building season. This was partially offset by higher margins on the commercial project completed in Q2 2016 typically associated with similar commercial projects.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses was approximately $1.2 million in Q2 2016 as compared with $1.1 million in Q2 2015. This slight increase was the result of higher share-based compensation expense related to the restricted stock grant in June 2015, with three months of expense in 2016 versus only one month in 2015.

Operating loss amounted to approximately ($0.7 million) in Q2 2016 compared with approximately ($0.9 million) in Q2 2015.

Interest expense amounted to approximately $0.4 million in each of Q2 2016 and Q2 2015.

During Q2 2015, the Company recorded a settlement gain of approximately $3.7 million as the result of the settlement agreement with the primary seller of KBS whereby, among other things, the principal amount on the seller's note was reduced from $5.5 million to $2.5 million and the forgiveness of all then-accrued interest related to the note. There was no similar gain for the same period of 2016.

Overall net loss in Q2 2016 was approximately ($1.1 million), or ($0.49) per share, compared with net income of approximately $2.4 million, or $1.95 per diluted share, in Q2 2015. Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding was approximately 2,223,000 shares in Q2 2016 and 1,205,000 shares in Q2 2015. The increase in outstanding shares resulted primarily from the completion of a common stock rights offering in September 2015.

Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2016:

  • Cash and cash equivalents amounted to approximately $315,000 at June 30, 2016 compared with approximately $624,000 at December 31, 2015.
  • As previously announced, the Company entered into a loan and security agreement with Gerber Finance Inc. in February 2016, providing KBS with a credit facility with borrowing availability of up to $4.0 million. The outstanding balance under the line of credit amounted to approximately $3.3 million (net of deferred financing costs) at June 30, 2016.
  • The Company's total long-term debt decreased to $9.8 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $11.4 million at December 31, 2015. In February 2016, the Company used $1.0 million of the proceeds from the Gerber Finance line of credit to reduce its debt owing to LSVI.

Management Comments:

"We are very pleased with the success of our recently completed commercial project, which contributed to a strong end to the second quarter," said Dan Koch, ATRM's president and chief executive officer. "This type of project validates our new strategy with respect to commercial projects. On the other hand, we were disappointed in the pace of the spring ramp-up in our residential business which caused us to delay the opening of our Waterford facility. This contributed to our lower than expected residential sales."

"We will continue to implement our commercial business strategy," Mr. Koch added. "As previously reported, we took on fewer commercial projects during 2014 and 2015 while we completed the 'legacy' commercial projects we had assumed at the time of the KBS acquisition in April 2014 and implemented necessary management, operational, and contractual improvements to resume these complex projects. We recently completed the service work on the 'legacy' projects and have booked new commercial business with project scopes and terms that are more favorable to KBS. The most recently completed commercial project is an example which we would like to repeat. We believe that these types of projects will be a key component to growing overall sales for KBS."

"We are optimistic about the remainder of fiscal year 2016," Mr. Koch continued. "We are confident in our ability to deliver quality to our customers. With the 'legacy' project problems behind us and the strides we have made in improving operational efficiencies and controlling costs, we feel we are positioned well for a strong second half. Both factories are now fully operational, we have a strong backlog of approximately $8.1 million as of June 30th and our builders continue to forecast a busy remainder of the building season and through the end of the year. We will continue to follow our strategy with respect to new commercial business and opportunistically bring on those commercial projects which add value to the Company."

"We have also added new residential builders and expect to continue to grow residential sales during the remainder of 2016. We expect total sales and our bottom line performance to improve through the end of the year. We continue to believe KBS is capable of generating annual revenues of $40 million and operating profit margins of 5-10%. Our goal is to reach the lower end of this profit margin range by the end of fiscal year 2016."
