Commenting on the Company’s second quarter results, Sean Garber, President of ISA stated, “We are extremely pleased to have been able to increase both revenue and unit volume in our core Ferrous and Non-Ferrous business units, in spite of the challenging scrap market. Since the beginning of 2014 we have expanded our customer base from whom we purchase scrap and increased the number of consumers to whom we sell scrap. Not only has this reduced risk in our business, it has helped us generate higher metal margins.”

Key Highlights for the Six Months ending June 30, 2014, as compared to same period in 2013

  • Year-to-date, Ferrous and Non-Ferrous revenue collectively increased 9% on 15% higher Ferrous unit volume and 5% higher Non-Ferrous unit volume
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $798,000, a 20% reduction from operating expense levels in the first half of 2013
  • Interest expense declined by 52% as a result of more favorable financing terms and the elimination of factoring fees
  • EBITDA for the first six months of 2014 was $833,000

Reflecting on ISA’s year-to-date results, Mr. Garber commented, “It is truly energizing to see the results that our team has produced in such a short period of time. Everyone at ISA remains committed to finding better, more profitable ways of conducting our business. As a result of the team’s intense focus on our business processes, we continue to find new ways to reduce costs and operate more efficiently.

“In addition to the operating improvements we have made, we are much better capitalized than we were at the beginning of 2014. The $3 million equity investment by Recycling Capital Partners and the new Wells Fargo credit facility have strengthened our financial position. These parties have expressed their commitment to facilitating ISA’s growth.

“Finally, we believe our Board will benefit from the recent addition of William Yarmuth and Vince Tyra as independent directors. William and Vince bring relevant operating expertise and Board experience to ISA. Each has a proven track record of leadership in growing his business both organically and through acquisitions. This experience can benefit ISA as it analyzes similar opportunities.”

(1) EBITDA is calculated by the Company as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses EBITDA as a key performance measure of results of operations for purposes of evaluating performance internally. This non-GAAP measurement is not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, we believe the EBITDA calculation provides additional information to investors and debt holders due to the fact that tax credits, tax rates and other tax related items vary by company. Additionally, years of service for fixed assets and amortizable assets are based on company judgment. Finally, companies have several ways of raising capital which can affect interest expense. We believe the presentation of EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of performance exclusive of these unique items.
