LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, August 13, 2020 - Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. (the “Company”) (TSXV: OML; OTCQX: OLNCF) reported financial and operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020, ended June 30, 2020, and information on management actions and cost-saving initiatives completed in and after the fiscal quarter.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

Second quarter fiscal 2020 revenue was US$1.6 million, representing a 37% decrease compared to second quarter of fiscal 2019 of US$2.6 million. The second quarter fiscal 2020 decrease was largely attributable to lower commercial aerospace fastener component volume impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Second quarter fiscal 2020 Adjusted EBITDA(1) was US($142,621) compared to US$380,616 in the second quarter fiscal 2019. The second quarter fiscal 2020 net loss was US($263,414), or US$(0.02) per diluted common share, as compared to second quarter 2019 net income of US$119,320 or US$0.01 per diluted common share.

Second quarter fiscal 2020 Adjusted EBITDA and net income were adversely affected by lower commercial aerospace fastener component revenue related to the COVID-19 pandemic impact on fastener demand for new commercial aircraft build rates, adjustments in inventory levels at our commercial aerospace customers as well as plant disruptions and shutdowns at certain of our customers.

Free cash flow(1) was US$321,042 for the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to US$5,507 in second quarter of fiscal 2019. The year-over-year increase was driven primarily by net working capital inflows resulting from collections on accounts receivable and net inventory destocking.

Cash balance at the end of quarter was US$1.6 million, and outstanding debt(2) of US$1.5 million, resulting in net cash of US$127,000. The Company had US$1.5 million undrawn capacity under its revolving credit facility.

First Half Fiscal 2020 Results

First half fiscal 2020 revenue was $US3.7 million, or a 25% decrease as compared to US$5.0 million in the first half of fiscal 2019. First half fiscal 2020 Adjusted EBITDA(1) was US$54,063 compared to US$1.1 million in the first half of fiscal 2019. First half fiscal 2020 net loss was US($350,490), or US$(0.03) per diluted share as compared to net income of US$354,332, or US$0.03 in the first half of fiscal 2019.

Free cash flow(1) was US$(25,743) for the first half of fiscal 2020, compared to US$(428,113) in first half of fiscal 2019. The approximately US$402,000 increase in free cash flow generation was driven, in part, by net working capital inflows resulting from collections on accounts receivable, tempered growth in the build-for-stock inventory program, offset by reduced accounts payable levels.

Management Actions

Operations at our California manufacturing facility resumed as expected on August 4th after the previously announced 10-day shutdown for cleaning and sanitizing procedures in connection with COVID-19. During the shutdown period, additional workflow procedures were put in place to further enhance social distancing protocols. Additionally, the Company implemented and substantially completed a repositioning and alignment plan that will result in cost reductions and efficiencies at the facility. These restructuring actions along with other cost saving initiatives are expected to yield annual cost savings of approximately US$600,000 and will accelerate margin expansion when recovery in the commercial aerospace market takes hold.

Management Comments

David Robbins, Omni-Lite’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said:

“Given the impact of COVID-19 on the commercial aerospace sector, we are taking necessary and decisive action to adjust the cost structure at our California operation to better align with lower demand, and to position us to respond to new ongoing demand for engineered fastener components for defense aerospace applications.

During the quarter, we saw growth in demand for our microelectronics products and contract manufacturing services provided at our Monzite division, driven largely by continued demand in the defense aerospace platforms Monzite supports.

I would like to thank all our employees for their exceptional commitment and dedication demonstrated since the start of this challenging time. We are considered critical infrastructure providers by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).”
