Oilfield Services company reports record revenues of $2.6 Million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, up more than 380% from 1st quarter 2012 on pro forma basis
58% sequential growth from previous quarter
Houston, Texas, May 15, 2013—HII Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), symbol HIIT (OTCBB/OTCQB), an oilfield services company headquartered in Houston, Texas, today announced financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2013.
As stated in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on May 15, 2013, first quarter 2013 revenues were $2,609,773, which generated a gross profit margin of $532,292. These revenues consist of AES Water Solutions as well as initial revenue contribution from South Texas Power and the AES Safety Services divisions, which were launched in late December 2012 and January 2013 respectively. AES Water Solutions generated revenues of $536,371 for the comparable period in 2012. Accordingly, this represents revenue growth for AES of more than 380% for the first quarter 2013, on a pro forma basis, from the comparable period in 2012.
For the first quarter ending March 31, 2013, the Company had Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $101,390, (EBITDA defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, and one-time non-operational expense items), a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation table of the Adjusted EBITDA is provided below. The Net Loss for the first quarter 2013 was $114,389.
Brent Mulliniks, President of AES Water Solutions stated, “We experienced good growth in the first quarter from both increased demand with existing customers and from expanded operations. AES incurred additional expenses as it established new areas of operations in the Permian Basin and the Cline Shale in West Texas as well as the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas.” Mr. Mulliniks continued, “New revenues are now being generated as a result of these expenditures.”
“All three divisions, Water, Power and Safety, exceeded their revenue targets for the first quarter 2013,” said Matthew Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies. “Our investments in people and equipment which used cash flow from existing operations should continue to fuel organic growth. Also, the Company continues to evaluate new technologies and potential acquisitions.”
Mr. Flemming also confirmed that the Company’s expansion into West and South Texas with AES Water Solutions frac water supply operations added new customers, and generated additional revenues while reducing its overall customer concentration. Mr. Flemming continued, “The Company procured trailers, manifolds, and related equipment as well as sourced new labor for these strategic markets. Currently, we anticipate further growth in all three divisions in these active resource areas going forward.”
As reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ending March 31, 2013, Current Assets increased by approximately $796,000 to approximately $2,540,000 from the previous quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company’s Stockholder’s Equity (Total Assets minus Total Liabilities) decreased by approximately $63,000 to approximately $808,000, sequentially from the previous quarter ended December 31, 2012. These balance sheet changes were the result of increased revenues and cash flow partially offset by expansion costs and other one-time expenses.
