Fortress International Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Third Quarter Revenue Increases 21% Year-over-Year to $9.3 Million

COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fortress International Group, Inc. (Other OTC: FIGI) a provider of consulting and engineering, construction management and site services for mission-critical facilities, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Anthony Angelini, Chief Executive Officer of Fortress, stated, "Our results for the third quarter reflect continued progress with our efforts to transition the company and we are pleased to see a return to positive Normalized Adjusted EBITDA. Our continued focus on more profitable and recurring streams of business contributed to the achievement of higher gross margins. After a slower period of new contract awards in the early summer, we were pleased to see an uptick in new, profitable bookings toward the end of the quarter. This will lay a foundation for our business in early 2013. We continue to develop several strategic initiatives that we believe will further position the company for long-term profitability."

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue of $9.3 million, compared with $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Gross profit of $2.6 million, compared with $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Normalized Adjusted EBITDA of $337 thousand, compared with Normalized Adjusted EBITDA of $287 thousand in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Net loss of $(0.3) million, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of $0.1 million or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaling $5.4 million as of September 30, 2012.

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012:

  • Revenue of $39.1 million, compared with $27.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
  • Gross profit of $7.0 million, compared with $11.0 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
  • Normalized Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(24) thousand, compared with Normalized Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
  • Net loss of $(3.8) million, or $(0.27) per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.23 and $0.21 per basic and diluted share, respectively, in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Chief Financial Officer Kenneth D. Schwarz added, "In this release and going forward, we will be referring to Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash items such as stock-based compensation, and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-recurring and other items from Adjusted EBITDA.  During the third quarter we continued to focus on our Facility Management business. Our mix of business in the third quarter supported this focus and contributed to strong gross margins. Going forward, we believe we can sustain gross margins in the 20% to 25% range. Expense reduction measures undertaken during the first half of 2012 have generated marked improvements in SG&A and operating expenses. We expect to be able to maintain our SG&A at this new level and are investing carefully in resources and initiatives that will support the growth of the business over the longer-term. We are pleased with the progress we have made and look forward to improved results as we move ahead."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures not defined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment loss on goodwill and other intangibles, stock-based compensation, and provision for bad debts.  We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe this supplemental measure of operating performance is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding non-cash items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our results of operations in any particular period. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.

We define Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA before restructuring charges and certain other non-recurring costs. We present Normalized Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is helpful in comparing our operating results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding from Adjusted EBITDA certain non-recurring items that do not directly correlate to our business and may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our performance during a particular period.  Similar to Adjusted EBITDA, we also use Normalized Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of certain management personnel when determining incentive compensation.  

Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA, while providing useful information, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or cash flows as determined under GAAP. Consistent with Regulation G under the U.S. federal securities laws, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, and this reconciliation is located under the heading "Normalized Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation" following the Consolidated Statements of Operations included in this press release.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release may contain "forward-looking statements" -- that is, statements related to future -- not past -- events, plans, and prospects. In this context, forward-looking statements may address matters such as our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as "guidance," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "should," or "will." Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. Particular uncertainties that could adversely or positively affect the Company's future results include: the Company's reliance on a significant portion of its revenues from a limited number of customers; risks relating to operating in a highly competitive industry; actual or potential conflicts of interest between the Company and members of the Company's senior management; risks relating to rapid technological, structural, and competitive changes affecting the industries the Company serves; the uncertainty as to whether the Company can replace its backlog; risks involved in properly managing complex projects; risks relating the possible cancellation of customer contracts on short notice; risks relating our ability to continue to implement our strategy, including having sufficient financial resources to carry out that strategy; risks relating to our ability to meet all of the terms and conditions of our debt obligations; uncertainty related to current economic conditions and the related impact on demand for our services; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. These uncertainties may cause the Company's actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
