THE WOODLANDS, Texas - December 5, 2018
- Nexeo Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXEO) (the "Company" or "Nexeo Solutions"), today announced its consolidated financial results for the three months and twelve months ended September 30, 2018.

David Bradley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nexeo Solutions stated, "Through the determination and resolve of our team, this year we achieved record levels of profitability. We have once again demonstrated the power of our business model, underpinned by our centralized operating platform, to deliver differential results. We believe the pending merger with Univar will demonstrate our system's scalability and power, enabling the combined entity to deliver industry-leading growth."

Sales and operating revenues were $1,017.2 million and $981.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively. The increase in revenues was primarily attributable to an increase in average selling prices of 13.1% across all segments in all regions largely due to an inflationary pricing environment and a shift in portfolio mix to products with higher average selling prices. The increase was partially offset by an 8.7% decrease in volumes as well as a decrease of approximately $5.3 million resulting from the weakening of exchange rates of various currencies versus the USD as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Gross profit was $117.3 million and $109.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively. Gross profit increased primarily due to a favorable shift in product mix and continued specialty supplier growth. The increase in gross profit was partially offset by a decrease of approximately $0.5 million resulting from the weakening of exchange rates of various currencies versus the USD compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

The Company reported a net loss of $15.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and net income of $13.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $53.5 million and $52.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively.
