Stabilis Energy Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

Reports Year to Date Revenue Growth of 30%

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2019 / Stabilis Energy, Inc., (“Stabilis”) (OTCQX:SLNG) today reported its financial results for its 3rd quarter ended September 30, 2019 (“current quarter”).

Three Month Results for the Period Ending September 30, 2019

Stabilis reported revenues of $10.5 million, an increase of 31% compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2018 (“prior year quarter”) driven by a 22% increase in LNG gallons sold and the closing of the Company’s business combination with American Electric Technologies (“AETI”) on July 26, 2019. Revenues from Stabilis’ LNG segment increased $1.1 million or 14% due to increased production at the George West liquefaction facility, partially offset by a temporary reduction of activity with a large LNG distribution customer. Utilization of the George West liquefier averaged 83% in the current quarter versus 55% in the prior year quarter driven by increased revenue with customers in industrial end markets and Mexico. AETI contributed $1.4 million of revenue in the current quarter.

Adjusted Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) was $0.3 million in the current quarter vs. $0.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Net loss for the current quarter was $3.4 million compared to a net loss of $3.2 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter included approximately $1.1 million of costs related to transactions closed during the quarter and costs related to our listing on a major stock exchange.

Nine Month Results for the Period Ending September 30, 2019

For the first nine months of 2019, Stabilis reported revenues of $34.6 million, an increase of 30% compared to the first nine months of 2018. Revenues from Stabilis’ LNG business increased $6.6 million or 25%. Utilization of the George West liquefier averaged 72% for the first 9 months of 2019 versus 46% for the first nine months of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2019 was $4.4 million, a $2.5 million or 131% improvement from the same period in 2018. Net loss for the first nine months was $5.0 million compared to a net loss of $8.2 million for the same period last year, an improvement of $3.2 million.

“We are pleased with the continued growth in our core LNG business, as well as with the growth opportunities we see in front of us as we expand into the Mexican market,” said Jim Reddinger, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our pipeline of LNG production and distribution investment opportunities is robust and growing, and we believe that we will be in a position to move forward on one or more of these opportunities in the near future.”

About Stabilis

Stabilis Energy, Inc. is a vertically integrated provider of small-scale liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) production, distribution and fueling services to multiple end markets in North America. Stabilis has safely delivered over 200 million gallons of LNG through more than 20,000 truck deliveries during its 15-year operating history in the LNG industry, which it believes makes it one of the largest and most experienced small-scale LNG providers in North America. Stabilis’ customers use LNG as a fuel source in a variety of applications in the industrial, energy, mining, utilities and pipelines, commercial, and high horsepower transportation markets. Stabilis’ customers use LNG as an alternative to traditional fuel sources, such as distillate fuel oil and propane, to lower fuel costs and reduce harmful environmental emissions. Stabilis’ customers also use LNG as a “virtual pipeline” solution when natural gas pipelines are not available or volumes are curtailed. To learn more, visit www.stabilisenergy.com.

Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to assess the performance and operating results of our business. EBITDA is defined as Earnings before Interest (includes interest income and interest expense), Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted for certain special items that occur during the reporting period, as noted below. We include EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance. Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA is a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). Accordingly, they should not be used as an indicator of, or an alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management’s discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements, such as debt service requirements. Because the definition of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may vary among companies and industries, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The following table provides a reconciliation of Net Loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands).
