GEDERA, Israel, May 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TAT Technologies Ltd. (TATT) ("TAT" or the "Company"), a leading provider of products and services to the commercial and military aerospace and ground defense industries, reported today its unaudited results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019.

Financial highlights for the first quarter of 2019 (unaudited): 

  • Revenues for the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2019 were $23.3 million compared with $24.4 million in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2018.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2019 increased to $1.3 million compared with $0.4 million in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2018.

  • GAAP net income of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2019 compared with a net loss of $0.7 million, or a net loss of $0.08 per diluted share in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2018.

  • Non-GAAP net income of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2019, compared with non-GAAP net loss of $0.7 million, or a net loss of $0.08 per diluted share in the three-month period that ended on March 31, 2018.

Mr. Igal Zamir, TAT's CEO and President commented on the results: "We are pleased with the improved results of the first quarter. During the second half of 2018 we took several steps to cut expenses and improve operational efficiency. These actions are reflected in improved profitability metrics in the first quarter of 2019. We plan to continue executing our strategic plan to become a leader in the heat exchange OEM and MRO as well as in the power and actuation segment". 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company also presents a Non-GAAP presentation of Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA.  The adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results, trends and performance.  Non-GAAP Net Income excludes changes, income or losses, as applicable, related to one or more of the following: (1) share-based compensation expenses and/or (2) certain tax impact and/or (3) share in results of equity investment of affiliated companies. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income excluding the impact of: the Company's share in results of affiliated companies, share-based compensation, taxes on income, financial (expenses) income, net, and depreciation and amortization.  Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA, however, should not be considered as alternatives to net income and operating income for the period and may not be indicative of the historic operating results of the Company; nor they are meant to be predictive of potential future results.  Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. See reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA in pages 9 and 13 below.

Note to the financial statements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which requires lessees to recognize leases on-balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to recognize a ROU assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. Leases will be classified as finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern and classification of expense recognition in the statement of operations. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition method and did not restate comparative periods. The new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. The Company recognizes the lease expenses in the consolidated statements of Operations on a straight-line basis over the lease period.

Additionally, the Company did not separate lease and non-lease components for all of its leases. The Company elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. This means, for those leases that qualify, the Company will not recognize ROU assets or lease liabilities, and this includes not recognizing ROU assets or lease liabilities for existing short-term leases of those assets in transition. Instead, the Company will continue to recognize the lease payments for those leases in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

The most significant effects of adoption relate to (1) the recognition of new ROU assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet for real estate operating leases; and (2) recording of Non-cash finance expenses on its statement of income.

The adoption of the standard resulted in recognition of $7.3 million of lease assets and lease liabilities as of January 1, 2019 on the Company's consolidated balance sheets. During the three months period ended March 31, 2019 the Company recorded non-cash finance expenses in the amount of $0.14 million.
