Micron Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: MICR) (the “Company”), a diversified contract manufacturing organization, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Micron Products, Inc., producing highly-engineered, innovative components requiring precision machining and injection molding, announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

In the second quarter of 2021, the Company reported $5,389,735 in revenue, as compared to $4,355,769 in the second quarter of 2020, a 23.7% increase. Net Income for the second quarter of 2021 was $3,012,602 compared to net income of $1,030,968 in the second quarter of 2020. Gross Margin decreased to 8.1% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 15.6% in the second quarter of 2020. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company recognized a gain of $3,424,215 on the sale of fixed assets related to the sale-leaseback of the Company’s main manufacturing facility. During the second quarter of 2020, the Company had recognized $1,213,000 in other income related to forgiveness of its Payroll Protection Program (“PPP”) loan.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021, which excludes the $3.4 million gain, was $22,000 compared to $290,000 (which excludes the $1.2 million PPP loan forgiveness) in the second quarter of 2020, an approximate 92% decrease.

Outlook:

CEO Bill Laursen commented, “During the second quarter, the Company achieved several milestones: The implementation of a new ERP system; the closing of the sale and leaseback of our main manufacturing building, which generated net proceeds of $3.9 million used to reduce bank and other debt; and the completion a new credit facility which will provide a revolving line of credit as well as a capital expenditures line.

Micron’s decreased adjusted EBITDA for the quarter, despite an increase in sales, reflects investments being made to strengthen our abilities to support new customers and product development, with a particular emphasis on engineering talent. We have several important initiatives underway which we believe will begin to show fruition in early 2022. We are optimistic about our product development activities and are embarking on further investments, in the form of capital outlays, for production equipment and facilities changes that will be needed for expected increased production in the coming year.”

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting net income, a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle (“GAAP”) measure, this news release contains information about Adjusted EBITDA (income from continuing operations adjusted for income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring income and expenses), which is a non-GAAP measure. Share-based compensation includes directors fees paid by means of stock grants versus cash as well as non-cash incentives. Non-recurring (income) includes the sale leaseback transaction in the Second Quarter of 2021 and the PPP Loan forgiveness in the Second Quarter of 2020. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA allows investors to view its performance in a manner similar to the methods used by management and provides additional insight into its operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for the GAAP measure of net income (loss) and, therefore, should not be used in isolation of, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measure. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.
