1Proforma assumes MC Assembly Holdings, Inc. (“MC Assembly”), acquired on November 9, 2018 had been acquired by SMTC on April 1, 2018, the first day of the second quarter of 2018.

2Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Gross Profit percentage, and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Please refer to the section below labeled Non-GAAP information and the various reconciliations shown below in this press release.

SMTC Corporation (“SMTC”) experienced robust year-over-year revenue growth, up 104.4% from its reported revenue in the second quarter of 2018 and up 10.9% on a proforma basis which assumes that MC Assembly, acquired in the fourth quarter of 2018, had been part of STMC in the second quarter of 2018. Revenue from Test and Measurement, Industrial, Power and Clean Tech and Aerospace and Defense customers were large contributors to the year-over-year growth in revenue.

As reported and Proforma Adjusted EBITDA both increased significantly over the second quarter of 2018. The improvement in Adjusted EBITDA metrics was due to higher revenue and gains from operational efficiencies resulting from various company initiatives, synergies achieved and increased scale from the completed integration of the of MC Assembly.

“During Q2 we completed the integration of MC Assembly and turned our attention toward executing our strategic growth plans. We invested $1.3 million in capital improvements initiatives that are intended to improve operating efficiencies, enhance service to support our growing customer base, and create value for our shareholders in the second quarter,” said Ed Smith, STMC President and CEO.

“With tariff concerns high on the mind of our customers, we incurred additional costs in the second quarter as we shifted some customer production to Mexico. To address this growing customer concern about tariffs, we have expanded our North American capabilities and production capacity at two facilities acquired in the 2018 acquisition of MC Assembly. This quarter we are adding a new capability in our Billerica, United States location that provides our customers with world-class 'Quick-turn' manufacturing and should enable an accelerated launch timetable for our customers’ products with the flexibility to scale into a low-cost geography that is available from other SMTC sites. We also upgraded and expanded our capacity at its Fresnillo facility in Zacatecas, Mexico enabling a 25% increase in capacity, which we started to ramp up during the third quarter,” added Smith.

“As part of our strategy to improve our capital structure, at the end of June we completed a Rights Offering and Registered Direct Offering that generated aggregate proceeds of approximately $14.6 million. On July 3, 2019 we used $12 million of these proceeds to accelerate pay-off of our outstanding Term B debt. This week we refinanced our credit agreements which reduced the Term A outstanding balance to $40 million from $50 million, reduced our interest costs and expanded borrowing capacity under the asset-based revolver facilities to $65 million to better support our future growth,” Smith commented.

Outlook

“Customer concerns about the continuing impact of tariffs and macro-economic factors has caused, as we experienced in the second quarter, many customers to review and begin to revise where they outsource their manufacturing. While we believe SMTC is well positioned with our North American facilities, we expect customer demand may be impacted over the second half of the year as customers continue to react and adjust to the ongoing geo-political impacts on global trade. As a result, our current expectation for revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for 2019 will more likely approach the lower end of our prior guidance of $393 to $408 million in revenue and $27 to $29 million for Adjusted EBITDA,” noted Smith.

Financial Results Conference Call

SMTC will host a conference call which will start at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, August 8, 2019. The conference call can be accessed by visiting the Investor Relations section of SMTC’s web site on the Investor Relations Calendar page at https://www.smtc.com/investors/news-events/ir-calendar or dialing 1-877-317-6789 (for U.S. participants) or 1-412-317-6789 (for participants outside of the U.S ten minutes prior to the start of the call and request to join the SMTC Corporation’s Second Quarter 2019 Results Conference Call).

Non-GAAP information

Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Gross Profit Percent, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted Gross Profit is computed as gross profit excluding unrealized gains or losses on unsettled forward foreign exchange contracts and amortization of intangible assets. Adjusted Gross Profit Percentage is computed as Adjusted Gross Profit divided by revenue. A reconciliation of Adjusted Gross Profit to gross profit is included in the attachment. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is computed as Net Income (Loss) excluding restructuring charges, unrealized foreign exchange gains/losses on unsettled forward foreign exchange contracts, stock-based compensation, stock-based compensation – warrant revaluation, amortization of intangible assets, merger and acquisition related expenses and gains or losses on contingent consideration. A reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) to Net Income (Loss) is included in the attachment. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before Interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is computed as net income (loss) from operations excluding depreciation and amortization, restructuring charges, unrealized foreign exchange gains/losses on unsettled forward foreign exchange contracts, stock-based compensation, stock-based compensation – warrant revaluation, interest, income tax expense and merger and acquisition related expenses and gains or losses on contingent consideration. SMTC Corporation has provided in this release a non-GAAP calculation of Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental information regarding the operational performance of SMTC’s core business. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss) is included in the attachment. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing SMTC’s financial results to assess operational performance and liquidity as well as to provide a consistent method of comparison to historical periods and to the performance of competitors and peer group companies. SMTC believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful for management and investors in assessing SMTC’s performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. SMTC believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics we use in making operating decisions and because investors and analysts use it to help assess the health of our business. Non-GAAP measures are subject to limitations as these measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Because of these limitations, investors should consider Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Gross Profit Percentage, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA along with other financial performance measures, including revenue, gross profit and net earnings (loss), as reflected in SMTC’s interim consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
