HII Technologies, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results
Record Fourth Quarter Revenues of $1.65 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $345,000 and Net Income of $206,000
HOUSTON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — HII Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), symbol HIIT (OTCBB/OTCQB), an oilfield services company head-quartered in Houston, Texas, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.
As stated in the Company’s 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 25, 2013, the fourth quarter 2012 revenues were approximately $1.65 million. For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012, the Company had Net Profit of approximately $206,000,and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $345,000, (EBITDA defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, and one-time non-operational expense items), a non-GAAP measure.
The Company’s audited revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were approximately $1.75 million, which include all revenues of the Company’s recently acquired subsidiary Apache Energy Services, LLC (AES) since its September 26, 2012 closing date.
“The year 2012 was one of significant transition, performance and growth for our Company,” said Matthew Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies. “Our acquisition of AES Water Solutions, commercialization of South Texas Power, and key additions to the management team provided great value to our stockholders. These milestones generate additional revenues streams and support our growth. We are also pleased with our expanding operational footprint in Texas and Oklahoma. According to the March 2013 Baker Hughes Rig count, Texas and Oklahoma have approximately 57% percent of the total rigs currently operating in the United States. Our geographic footprint in South Texas, West Texas, North Texas and Oklahoma regions gives the Company significant exposure in high profile shale and unconventional “tight oil” plays. Additionally, the recent launch of our AES Safety Services division has expanded our operations into Ohio and West Virginia.”
Balance Sheet Comparisons (in thousands) Q3, 2012 Year end 2012 -------- ------------- Current Assets $684 $1,744 Total Assets $2,635 $4,183 ------------ ------ ------ Current Liabilities $1,047 $2,445 Total Liabilities $2,022 $3,312 ----------------- ------ ------ Stockholder equity $613 $871
As reported in the Company’s 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K audited results, Current Assets increased by approximately $1.06 million to approximately $1.74 million from the previous quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company’s Stockholder’s Equity (Total Assets minus Total Liabilities) increased by approximately $258,000 to approximately $871,000, sequentially from the previous quarter ended September 30, 2012. These increases were directly attributable to the Company’s acquisition of AES on September 26, 2012 and its operational performance in the fourth quarter 2012.
