Quarterly Financial Highlights

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $27.9 million, a $1.1 million decrease from the comparative quarter in 2013. Revenue recognition was impacted by delays in the shipment of a portion of a large customer order. The majority of this order was shipped subsequent to June 30, 2014.

Gross profit percentage for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was 43%, a 4% increase from the comparative quarter in 2013. Profitability was positively impacted by higher sales of technical products, including proprietary software products, and the weakening Canadian dollar.

Net earnings for the quarter was $8.3 million ($0.30 per basic share), compared to $3.1 million ($0.11 per basic share) in the second quarter of 2013. Net earnings were impacted by a one-time gain resulting from the sale of Mobile Solutions. Earnings from continuing operations was $2.3 million ($0.08 per basic share), compared to $2.4 million ($0.09 per basic share) in the second quarter of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $3.9 million, a 16% decrease from the comparative quarter in 2013. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by the delayed shipment as well as higher overhead expenses associated with supporting growth initiatives. These factors were partially offset by the realization of higher gross profit percentage.

As at June 30, 2014, McCoy had working capital of $66.0 million, including $23.6 million in cash and cash equivalents.

1 EBITDA is an additional GAAP measure presented under IFRS defined as "net earnings from continuing operations, before finance charges (net), income tax expense, depreciation, and amortization." Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as "net earnings from continuing operations before finance charges (net), income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, net changes in fair value related to derivative financial instruments and share-based compensation". Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net earnings in measuring McCoy Global's performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. However, McCoy Global calculates adjusted EBITDA consistently from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA should not be used as an exclusive measure of cash flow since it does not account for the impact of working capital changes, capital expenditures, debt changes and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statement of cash flows.
2 The Corporation defines backlog as work that has a high certainty of being performed and is measured on the basis of a firm customer commitment, such as the receipt of a purchase order. Customers may default on or cancel such commitments, but many are secured by a deposit and/or require reimbursement by the customer upon default or cancellation. Backlog reflects likely future revenues; however, cancellations or reductions may occur and there can be no assurance that backlog amounts will ultimately be realized as revenue, or that the Corporation will earn a profit on backlog work. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog usually span from one to six months, and thus may not translate into revenue in the consecutive quarter.
3 The book-to-bill ratio is a measure of the amount of net sales orders received to revenues recognized and billed in a set period of time. The book-to-bill ratio is not a GAAP measure and therefore the definition and calculation of the ratio may vary among other issuers reporting the book-to-bill ratio. McCoy Global calculates the book-to-bill ratio as net sales orders taken in the reporting period divided by the revenues reported for the same reporting period.
