Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

- Record second quarter 2022 revenue of $184.2 million, a 41% increase year-over-year

- Second quarter 2022 Telecom segment revenue of $175.2 million, a 48.5% increase year-over-year

BLUE BELL, Pa., Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- QualTek Services Inc. ("QualTek" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: QTEK), a leading turnkey provider of infrastructure services to the North American 5G wireless, telecom, power grid modernization, and renewable energy sectors, announced today strong 2022 second quarter financial results of its subsidiary QualTek HoldCo, LLC.

(PRNewsfoto/QualTek USA, LLC)

Second quarter 2022 revenue was $184.2 million, compared to $130.6 million for the second quarter of 2021, a 41% increase. The increase in revenue was attributable to significant volume increases in 5G and Fiber rollouts in the Company's Telecom segment. Net loss for the second quarter 2022 was $25.6 million compared to $21.8 million for the prior year period. The increase is largely driven by public company readiness costs, stock compensation, and costs related to being a public company, which did not exist in the same quarter prior year. Second quarter 2022 adjusted EBITDA was $10.2 million compared to $6.4 million, inclusive of discontinued Canadian operations, for the second quarter of 2021, a 59% increase. Backlog at the end of the second quarter 2022 was $2.3 billion, up from year-end 2021 of $2.1 billion and up from first quarter 2022 of $2.2 billion. As previously discussed, the Company will issue updated guidance after Q3.

Scott Hisey, QualTek's Chief Executive Officer, said "We continue to experience unprecedented demand for our services. In this past quarter, we recorded the highest second quarter revenue in the Company's history, up 41% year-over-year. It's important to note that 96% of revenue was generated under Master Service Agreements. This growth, coupled with our estimated $2.3 billion backlog, has positioned QualTek to capitalize on what we continue to believe will be the largest telecommunications 5G and fiber builds in our nation's history."

Management will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The call-in number for the conference call is 1 (888) 330 – 2454 or 1 (240) 789 - 2714 using passcode 2965812. Additionally, the call will be broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed and replayed through the investor relations section of the Company's website at qualtekservices.com.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss before the provision for management fees, transaction expenses, share based compensation, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, loss on extinguishment of convertible notes, integration, public company readiness and close out costs and other items that are included in net income for the period that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance and certain unusual items impacting results in a particular period.

The forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations of the management of QualTek and are inherently subject to uncertainties and changes in circumstances and their potential effects and speak only as of the date of such statement. There can be no assurance that future developments will be those that have been anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP results are not presentations made in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and are presented only as a supplement to our financial statements based on GAAP. Non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader's understanding of our financial performance, but none of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP. They are not measures of financial condition or liquidity, and should not be considered as an alternative to profit or loss for the period determined in accordance with GAAP or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider such measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial measures or results of operations calculated or determined in accordance with GAAP.

We use non-GAAP measures in our operational and financial decision-making. We believe that such measures allow us to focus on what we deem to be a more reliable indicator of ongoing operating performance and our ability to generate cash flow from operations and we also believe that investors may find these non-GAAP financial measures useful for the same reasons. Non-GAAP measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies comparable to us, many of which present non-GAAP measures when reporting their results. These measures can be useful in evaluating our performance against our peer companies because we believe the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures. However, non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA, to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release. Our presentation of non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by any of the adjusted items, or that any projections and estimates will be realized in their entirety or at all.
