Livonia, MI. – March 25, 2020 – Alta Equipment Group Inc. (NYSE: ALTG) (“Alta”), a leading provider of premium industrial and construction equipment and related services, today announced financial results for the full year 2019. The financial results reflect the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, prior to the recent closing of the business combination on February 14, 2020 of the recent business combination between Alta’s predecessor, Alta Equipment Holdings, Inc., and B. Riley Principal Merger Corp., a special purpose acquisition company sponsored by an affiliate of B. Riley Financial, Inc. The business combination provided net proceeds to Alta of $538 million, through a combination of equity and debt financings, which Alta intends to use to fund its operations.

Ryan Greenawalt, Chief Executive Officer of Alta, said, “Our full year 2019 results underline the strength in our core business and the robust opportunities in our acquisition pipeline. During the year we added NITCO, a quality dealer in the New England material handling market as part of our acquisition strategy. The additions of Flagler CE Holdings, LLC and Liftech Equipment Companies, Inc. in early 2020 provide further scale and end market diversification to our dealer platform and a great opportunity to grow our aftermarket parts sales and service business through geographic expansion. The closing of the business combination marks a significant milestone in Alta’s proud history, strengthens our capital structure to weather the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and will ultimately support Alta’s continue growth as an industry leader.”

Recent Business Highlights:

·Acquired NITCO on May 1, 2019. NITCO had audited revenue of $126 million for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018
·Became a public company on February 18, 2020, following the business combination with

B. Riley Principal Merger Corp.

·Completed the acquisitions of Liftech Equipment Companies, Inc. and Flagler CE Holdings, LLC which increase the company’s presence in key geographic markets and expands opportunities in the Florida market
·Approximately half of Alta’s employees are skilled technicians and fuels the company’s part sales and service business
·Improved balance sheet strength through recent debt restructuring and equity raise

Forward Looking Statements

This presentation includes certain statements that may constitute “forward-looking statements” for purposes of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements may include, for example, statements about: our future financial performance; our plans for expansion and acquisitions; and changes in our strategy, future operations, financial position, estimated revenues, and losses, projected costs, prospects, plans and objectives of management. These forward-looking statements are based on information available as of the date of this presentation, and current expectations, forecasts and assumptions, and involve a number of judgments, risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the parties’ views as of any subsequent date, and we do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. As a result of a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, actual results or performance may be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Some factors that could cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to: (1) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against us relating to the business combination and related transactions; (2) the ability to maintain our listing of shares of common stock on the New York Stock Exchange; (3) the risk that integrating our acquisitions disrupts our current plans and operations; (4) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of our business combination and acquisitions, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, our ability to grow and manage growth profitably, our ability to maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain our management and key employees; (5) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (6) the possibility that we may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; (7) disruptions in the political, regulatory, economic and social conditions domestically or internationally; major public health issues, such as an outbreak of a pandemic or epidemic (such as the novel coronavirus COVID-19), which could cause disruptions in our operations, supply chain, or workforce; and (8) and other risks and uncertainties identified in this presentation or indicated from time to time in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our annual report on Form 10-K and other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). the Company cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive, and readers should not place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. We do not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

 

* Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), Alta discloses non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, in this press release because Alta believes they are useful performance measures because they allow for an effective evaluation of Alta’s operating performance when compared to its peers, without regard to financing methods or capital structure. Alta believes such measures are useful for investors and others in understanding and evaluating Alta’s operating results in the same manner as its management. However, such measures are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or in isolation from, net income (loss), revenue, operating profit, or any other operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Alta defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjustments for certain one-time or non-recurring items and other adjustments. Alta excludes these items from net income (loss) in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts are either non-recurring or can vary substantially within the industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Alta’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Alta’s computation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most comparable measures under GAAP, please see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” at the end of this press release.
