CUI GLOBAL REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

TUALATIN, Ore., November 12, 2019 -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), (the “Company”) today reported unaudited financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Note: In accordance with ASC 360-10 Impairment and Disposal of Long-Lived Assets and ASC 205-20 Discontinued Operations, as a result of CUI Global’s divestiture of its Electromechanical components business on September 30, 2019, and the classification of the majority of the remaining assets and liabilities that comprise the Power and Electromechanical segment, as held for sale within 12 months the Company has reclassified its Power and Electromechanical segment as discontinued operations for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018. As a result, the review of the third quarter results presented here focuses on the Company's continuing operations, which consists of its Energy segment. On November 8, 2019, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement to sell the majority of its Power business for $32.0 million.

 

Third Quarter 2019 Unaudited Financial Performance Summary: (comparisons to prior year period)

 

 

Total revenues were $6.1 million compared to $5.2 million;

 

 

Gross profit was $1.4 million compared to $1.3 million;

 

 

Gross margin was 23.4% compared to 25.6%;

 

 

Operating loss was $3.7 million compared to an operating loss of $3.3 million.

 

Nine Months 2019 Unaudited Financial Performance Summary: (comparisons to prior year period)

 

 

Total revenues were $17.8 million compared to $12.9 million;

 

 

Gross profit was $4.3 million compared to $3.0 million;

 

 

Gross margin was 24.3% compared to 23.6%;

 

 

Operating loss was $11.1 million compared to an operating loss of $13.3 million.

 

Balance Sheet and Backlog Summary:

Debt as of September 30, 2019 was $0.9 million including $0.7 million on a line of credit that is classified as liability held for sale.

 

 

Energy segment backlog was $10.8 million at September 30, 2019 as compared to $15.7 million at December 31, 2018.

 

Financial Accounting Standard Board Accounting Standard Update 2016-02

 

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standard Board Accounting Standard Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which requires lessee recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet, at the beginning of fiscal 2019.  As a result of the new lease standard, at September 30, 2019, $5.6 million was included with non-current assets, $0.8 million with current liabilities and $5.0 million with non-current liabilities, on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

 

 

 

“Our third quarter results reflect continued strength in our engineering and integration services in North America that offset lower revenue from our U.K. operations due to the continued headwinds associated with Brexit,” said William Clough, executive chairman of CUI Global. “We also took steps to unlock the value of our Power and Electromechanical segment in support of CUI Global’s strategy to become a diversified energy infrastructure services company. We completed the sale of our Electromechanical components business during the quarter and yesterday announced the sale of the majority of our remaining Power business to Bel Fuse for $32 million. With these transactions, we move forward with a recast balance sheet and the financial resources to support the company’s Energy-centric growth strategy with Jim O’Neil as CEO.”

 

Jim O’Neil, vice chairman and CEO of CUI Global, stated, “Secular trends in the oil and natural gas, electric power and telecommunications industries have created a sustained market opportunity that is ripe for a market entrant with a differentiated value proposition and disciplined acquisition strategy. With the divestiture of the majority Power and Electromechanical segment, we turn our full attention to executing on our strategy to diversify our Energy business into the infrastructure services market and build a recurring revenue and earnings stream through acquisitions and organic growth. With CUI Global as the foundation of a diversified platform for growth, we believe we have the right strategy and the financial means to establish the company as an industry leader and support a sustainable growth trajectory.”

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) are non-GAAP financial measures and are reconciled in the table below. These non-GAAP financial measures do not represent funds available for management's discretionary use and is not intended to represent cash flow from operations. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) should not be construed as a substitute for net loss or as a better measure of liquidity than cash flow from operating activities, which is determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) exclude components that are significant in understanding and assessing the Company's results of operations and cash flows. In addition, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) are not terms defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (loss) are used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark the company's operational results and the Company believes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Net Income (loss) are relevant and useful information which are often reported and widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the Company's industry. Accordingly, the Company is disclosing this information to permit a more comprehensive analysis of its operating performance, to provide an additional measure of performance and liquidity and to provide additional information with respect to the Company's ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements. Adjusted Net Income (loss) eliminates the amortization expenses associated with intangible assets acquired with Orbital Gas Systems Limited and CUI-Canada, as well as non-cash expenses associated with stock and stock options for compensation, royalties and services during the period, impairment of goodwill, the non-cash gains and loss on the Company’s equity-method investment and the non-cash gain on the sale of a discontinued operation.
