AETI Announces 61% quarterly revenue growth


    Growth driven by 169% increase in oil & gas sector revenues

HOUSTON, August 8, 2017 - American Electric Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AETI), a leading supplier of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, today announced its second quarter 2017 financial results.

AETI announced revenue for the quarter of $13.0 million, up 61% from the $8.0 million reported in the first quarter of 2017 and up 13% compared with the second quarter of 2016.

This quarterly revenue increase was primarily driven by growth in the oil & gas sector which saw revenue growth of 169% to $10.5 million. The majority of the oil & gas sector growth came from previously reported backlog in our Technical Products operations, but the Company also saw recovery in its M&I Electric Brazil operation in the quarter as well.

Gross margin for the quarter was up $1.4 million from the first quarter of 2017 but down $410k from the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to market pricing pressures in the US oil and gas markets.

The Company reported quarter ending backlog of $22.7 million, down $3.9 million from the $26.6 million reported at the end of the first quarter of 2017. The Company’s quarter ending backlog did not include the previously announced $4M West Texas pipeline project award received during the first week of July.

Based on the increased revenue and gross margins, the Company saw a $1.5 million improvement in quarterly operating results versus the first quarter of 2017.

EBITDA (a non-U.S. GAAP measure) improved to a loss of $0.7 million, from a loss of $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2017, but down versus a gain of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2016, while net loss attributable to common shareholders in the quarter was $1.1 million, compared with a loss of $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2017 and net income of $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2016. The second quarter of 2016 EBITDA and net income included $0.4 million of one-time gains from the settlement of a claim and the gain from the sale of assets related to the disposition of the company’s South Coast facility which closed in the second quarter of 2016.

“We were pleased with the growth in revenue and bottom line improvements resulting from our strong backlog growth in the first quarter and our services operations in the US and Brazilian markets,” said Charles Dauber, AETI president and chief executive officer. “Although our markets continue to be very challenging and liquidity remains tight, the company is doing a good job of booking business and executing projects as we head in the second half of 2017.”
