Industrial Services of America, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--Industrial Services of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDSA), (the “Company” or “ISA”), a company that buys, processes and markets ferrous and non-ferrous metals and other recyclable commodities, and buys used autos in order to sell used auto parts, today announced the filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

ISA reported a 2.1% revenue decrease for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. The Company reported a net loss of $441 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to a net income of $36 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Further, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $239 thousand during the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $816 thousand during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

The Company's results were negatively impacted during the first quarter of 2019 by lower margins resulting from market conditions that were less favorable during the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018. Although volumes increased in both the Company's ferrous and non-ferrous operations, average selling prices were lower by 3.0% and 16.9% for ferrous and non-ferrous, respectively, during the quarter when compared to the same period for the prior year.

Non-GAAP Measures

The information provided above in this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. In accordance with SEC rules, the Company has provided, in the supplemental information below, a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. To provide additional information regarding the Company's results, the Company has disclosed in this press release Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income excluding depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, interest expense, including loan fee amortization, (loss) gain on sale of assets, gain on insurance proceeds, other income (expense), net, and income tax provision. The Company has included Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental financial measure in this press release as it is a key measure used by management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate the core operating performance of the Company, to prepare budgets and operating plans, and because management believes such measure provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is also used in certain covenants contained in the Company’s credit agreement. However, use of Adjusted EBITDA as an analytic tool has its limitations and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP, including net income (loss), gross profit, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. The following table presents the reconciliation between net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA.
