ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Results

ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. ("ARC" and the "Company") (NASDAQ: ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, today reported its second quarter fiscal year 2016 (December 27, 2015) results.

Highlights for the quarter ended December 27, 2015, compared sequentially to the quarter ended September 27, 2015:

Second Quarter Results

Second fiscal quarter 2016 revenue was $25.0 million, a 2.2% increase sequentially, compared to the first fiscal quarter of 2016. The increase was due to early stages of momentum in several key market segments served by the Company, along with record metal 3D printing revenue. Adjusted EBITDA for the second fiscal quarter was $2.9 million, an 8.4% increase sequentially, compared to the first fiscal quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased to 11.5%, from 10.8% in the prior sequential quarter, reflecting greater operational efficiencies.

ARC Mexico

ARC has launched a new initiative in Mexico, which is expected to begin operations in the next several months. ARC Mexico should help the Company be more competitive in winning new North American business and improving margins.

Jason Young, Chairman and CEO, commented, "While we are encouraged by the positive sequential performance, we are still in the early stages of building momentum in sales. We remain focused on improving speed to market for our customers and helping them consolidate their supply chain with our holistic solution. Under our new sales leadership and focus, we believe we are making good progress educating our customers about our differentiated solution and expect to get continued traction over time. We are also encouraged by the growing demand for our metal 3D printing services, which we expect to be a major growth driver in the future."

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are calculated by dividing EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, by sales. The Company has provided non-GAAP financial information to provide additional, meaningful comparisons of current results to prior periods' results by excluding items that the Company does not believe reflect its fundamental business performance and are not representative or indicative of its results of operations. 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 (dollars in thousands):

EBITDA excludes interest expense, net and income taxes because these items are associated with our capitalization and tax structures. EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense because these non-cash expenses reflect the impact of prior capital expenditure decisions which may not be indicative of future capital expenditure requirements.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus merger expenses, other non-recurring expenses and reorganization expenses. Merger expenses are costs incurred to effectuate our acquisitions, such as advisory, legal and accounting fees. Other non-recurring expenses consist primarily of accounting and legal fees associated with our acquisitions and financing activities. Reorganization expenses are primarily labor and labor related costs associated with the termination of employees.

Adjusted Earnings removes the impact of merger expenses and reorganization expenses.
