Aly Energy Announces Third Quarter Record Revenues, Operating Income and Net Income

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2014) - Aly Energy Services, Inc. ("Aly Energy") (OTCQB: ALYE) today reported results for the third quarter of 2014. Revenues for the third quarter of 2014 increased by 206.8% to $13.5 million compared to $4.4 million for the third quarter of 2013 and Adjusted EBITDA increased 230.0% in the third quarter of 2014 to $3.3 million compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2013. Aly Energy reported record net income available to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2014 of approximately $1.0 million, after preferred stock dividends and accretion aggregating to approximately $0.1 million, compared to a net income available to common stockholders of approximately $39,000, after preferred dividends and accretion aggregating to approximately $62,000, for the same period in 2013.

Revenues for the first nine months of 2014 increased 105.1% to $27.9 million compared to $13.6 million for the first nine months of 2013 and Adjusted EBITDA increased 132.4% in the first nine months of 2014 to $7.9 million compared to $3.4 million for the first nine months of 2013. Aly Energy reported net income available to common stockholders for the first nine months of 2014 of $1.8 million, after preferred stock dividends and accretion aggregating to approximately $0.3 million, compared to a net income available to common stockholders of approximately $0.4 million, after preferred stock dividends and accretion aggregating to approximately $0.2 million, for the first 9 months of 2013.

Revenues, Adjusted EBITDA, and net income available to common stockholders in the third quarter and for the first nine months of 2014 include the results generated from the acquisitions of United Centrifuge, LLC ("United Centrifuge") and Evolution Guidance Systems Inc. ("Evolution") beginning on April 15, 2014 and July 1, 2014, respectively. 

Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2014, which reflects the results of Aly Energy as if the acquisition of United Centrifuge had occurred on January 1, 2014, was approximately $9.7 million. We have not included results for Evolution prior to July 1, 2014 within the pro forma calculation as the inclusion of such results would not have had a material impact. The pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations as they would have been had the United Centrifuge transaction been effected on the assumed date of January 1, 2014.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that are not necessarily comparable from one company to another. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, certain non-cash items, such as stock compensation expense, bad debt expense, and fair value adjustments, and certain non-routine items, including transaction costs. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the Company's normal operating results. For a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, please see the tables at the end of this release.

Micki Hidayatallah, Aly Energy's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "In the third quarter, Aly Energy generated record revenues, record operating profits and record net income. This was a result of the successful implementation of our growth strategy. During the third quarter of 2014, we expanded our product offerings to include directional drilling and measurement-while-drilling ("MWD") services.

"We also expanded our operations into the New Mexico Permian Basin, Mississippian Lime and Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, while simultaneously increasing and diversifying our customer base. We continue to strive to increase market share through the product differentiation of our vertical mud circulating tanks, steel drive overs, 450 barrel mud mixing plants and, most importantly, the exclusive design of our centrifuges and our MWD kits which offer longer operating hours with a lower failure rate. 

"In the fourth quarter, we anticipate that we will see further growth in revenues, cash flow and profitability generated by increased utilization of personnel and equipment."
