AUBURN HILLS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2022 / Unique Fabricating, Inc. (NYSE American:UFAB), a leader in engineering and manufacturing multi-material foam, rubber, and plastic components utilized in noise, vibration, and harshness management and air/water sealing applications for the transportation, appliance, medical, and consumer/off-road markets, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Net sales of $35.3 million compared to $34.8 million in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Net loss of $0.6 million or $0.05 per basic and diluted share compared to net loss of $1.1 million or $0.11 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Total debt decreased $1.4 million to $47.0 million as of March 31, 2022, from $48.4 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • Interest expense decreased $0.2 million to $0.5 million compared to the prior year period of $0.7 million.

'Our ongoing efforts, including cost recovery initiatives and fixed cost reductions, have improved our relative position in the markets we serve. Our first quarter revenue that modestly exceeded our prior guidance was approximately 17% above each of the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and the highest since the third quarter of 2020,' commented Doug Cain, Unique Fabricating's Chief Executive Officer. 'While volumes remain below historical levels and still somewhat volatile, Unique Fabricating has solidified its status as one of the stronger, more flexible, and more reliable suppliers in our competitive space. We believe that this has us well-positioned to realize meaningful benefits as the supply chain issues continue to normalize and volumes increase. We continue to navigate labor challenges, higher raw material costs, and other supply chain issues aggressively and creatively. As these conditions provide opportunities for us, we are confident we have taken the necessary steps to drive improved performance as volumes increase.'

'As part of these efforts, we continue to focus on expanding our business in the Appliance, Consumer Goods, and Medical markets with approximately 30% of year-to-date order intake coming from customers outside the automotive industry,' added Mr. Cain. 'The long-term automotive outlook is encouraging, but short-term challenges remain. We believe our ability to expand our presence in other markets and maintain discipline in our cost structure is positioning us for profitable growth as the supply chains continue to normalize.'

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Third Amendment to Forbearance Agreement suspended the Minimum Consolidated EBITDA Covenant for the remainder of the forbearance period. To keep the reader informed on how our performance measures against potential future financial covenants, we are disclosing the reconciliation of net income (loss), as reported, to Operating EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which is similar to financial measurements used in the past to measure the Company's performance against previously required financial covenants. There can be no assurance as to the requirements or form of future financial covenants, including that the example we are providing will be incorporated into any covenant or measure of our performance in the future. Operating EBITDA, as determined and measured by Unique Fabricating, is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and before certain items, as applicable, such as non-cash stock compensation, severance, restructuring, impairment of goodwill and other intangibles, acquisition and integration costs, gains (losses) on the sale or exchange of assets other than in the ordinary course of business, gains (losses) on extinguishment of debt, and certain expenses related to our Forbearance Agreement including financial advisor fees, legal expenses, amendment fees, and risk advisory and mitigation costs. Operating EBITDA as presented, should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable financial measure to Operating EBITDA that is prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Operating EBITDA, as determined and measured by Unique Fabricating, should also not be compared to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Certain of the adjustments and add backs to Operating EBITDA are recurring in nature and cash expenses, which we believe limits the usefulness of Operating EBITDA as a measurement of the Company's performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for analysis of Unique Fabricating's results as reported under U.S. GAAP.
