Quarterly Highlights

  • Backlog of $8.1 million, a 119% increase from December 31, 2016; and

"We also made progress during the quarter in enhancing our technology platforms. Early in the quarter we welcomed the employees from recently acquired 3PS to our team and are encouraged by their capabilities and the outlook for data acquisition technologies. In addition, we progressed on a number of new product initiatives that are now in various stages of development and we look forward to bringing these to market over the next several quarters."   

Operational Summary

Since January 1, 2017, McCoy Global reported:

  • An increase in customer orders and backlog from the fourth quarter of 2016. New customer orders increased to $14.8 million, up from $6.5 million from Q4 2016 and backlog increased to $8.1 million, compared to $3.7 million at December 31, 2016;

  • Revenue of $10.2 million, compared to $7.2 million in Q1 2016;
  • Net loss of $3.6 million, compared to net loss of $9.4 million in Q1 2016. The $3.6 million loss includes $1.0 million in restructuring charges, $0.3 million in impairment charges and $0.5 million in other losses;

  • Book-to-bill ratio3 of 1.46 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to 1.04 for the three months ended December 31, 2016

Quarterly Financial Summary

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $10.2 million, a 67% increase from the fourth quarter of 2016 and a 43% increase from Q1 2016. Improving industry fundamentals resulted in an increase in customers converting open quotations to purchase orders. During the first quarter of 2017, customer orders increased by 128% to $14.8 million from the fourth quarter of 2016.  This resulted in an increase in revenue in both capital equipment and aftermarket products and services and was realized in North America and certain international markets. In addition, part of the increase in revenue pertains to the acquisition of 3PS.

Gross profit percentage for the three months ended March 31, 2017 increased 38 percentage points from the first quarter of 2016. Gross profit was positively impacted by the increase in revenues realized from product and service sales and the utilization of spare production capacity which reduced the impact of under-absorption.

G&A expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $2.1 million, a $1.0 million decrease from the first quarter of 2016. The decrease is largely a result of the successful implementation of restructuring initiatives and continued spending discipline

Sales and marketing expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $0.9 million, which was consistent with the comparative quarter.

Research and development costs increased in the first quarter of 2017 to $0.9 million, from $0.4 million in the comparative period. The acquisition of 3PS enhanced McCoy's engineering team which will contribute valuable sensor technology expertise.  In addition, development and prototype costs were incurred, as several technology projects progressed and reached critical design testing phases.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $3.6 million ($0.13 loss per basic share), compared to net loss of $9.4 million ($0.34 loss per basic share) in the first quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $0.02 million compared to ($4.1 million) in the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA was positively impacted by improving industry fundamentals and cost containment initiatives.  

During the first quarter of 2016, the Corporation cancelled its operating line of credit and entered into a new credit facility to finance the acquisition of 3PS. The Corporation borrowed $6.0 million under the facility, which is the only debt that the Corporation has outstanding.

At March 31, 2017, the Corporation had $21.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, of which $2.5 million is restricted per the conditions of the credit facility.

1 EBITDA is calculated under IFRS and is reported as an additional subtotal in the Corporation's consolidated statements of cash flows. EBITDA is defined as net (loss) earnings, before finance charges, net; income tax expense (recovery); depreciation; and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as net (loss) earnings, before: finance charges, net; income tax expense (recovery); depreciation; amortization; impairment losses; restructuring charges; other (gains) losses, net; inventory excess and obsolete charges; and share-based compensation. The Corporation reports on EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because they are key measures used by management to evaluate performance. The Corporation believes adjusted EBITDA assists investors in assessing McCoy Global's current operating performance on a consistent basis without regard to non-cash or non-recurring items that can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net (loss) 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. For comparative purposes, in previous financial disclosures 'adjusted EBITDA' was defined as "net (loss) earnings before finance charges, net, income tax expense (recovery), depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, restructuring charges, non-cash changes in fair value related to derivative financial instruments and share-based compensation. The Corporation revised its definition of adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2016, as management believes the revised metric provides a better measure for assessing McCoy Global's current operating performance without regard to inventory excess and obsolete charges and other gains or losses, net; which are non-cash or non-recurring in nature. 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 statements of cash flows.


2 The Corporation defines backlog as orders that have a high certainty of being delivered 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 several 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 once fulfilled. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog historically spanned from one to six months. Under current market conditions many customers have shifted their purchasing habits towards a just-in-time model and to standard capital equipment and aftermarket parts and consumables that are carried in finished goods inventory, which typically move through backlog quicker than more complex custom orders that require longer production lead times.


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 ratio is an indicator of customer demand and sales order processing times. The book-to-bill ratio is not a GAAP measure and therefore the definition and calculation of the ratio will 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.
