CEO Comments

“We are pleased to report strong results and the continued broad-based improvement in our financial performance for the quarter ended September 30, 2018,” said Bohn Crain, Founder and CEO. “We posted revenues of $218.9 million, up $20.9 million or 10.6%; net revenues of $54.9 million, up $9.3 million or 20.4%; net income allocable to common stockholders of $2.6 million, up $2.3 million; adjusted net income allocable to common shareholders of $5.4 million, up $2.4 million or 82.8%; and Adjusted EBITDA of $8.8 million, up $2.3 million or 35.4% over the comparable prior year period. Our net revenue margins also improved, up 210 basis points to 25.1% from 23.0% for the comparable prior year period. In addition, we also saw improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA margins, up 190 basis points to 16.1%, from 14.2% for the comparable prior year period.”

“We saw good improvement across the organization segments (excluding intracompany eliminations) reporting U.S. revenues of $191.2 million, up $16.3 million and 9.3% and Canadian revenues of $27.7 million, up $4.1 million and 17.4% for the comparable prior year period. For net revenues, our U.S. operations reported $47.1 million, up $6.5 million and 16.0% and our Canadian operations reported $7.7 million, up $2.7 million and 54.0% over the comparable prior year period.”

“On the technology front we also continue to make steady progress on the deployment of our new SAP-based transportation management system (“SAP-TM”) and have begun to deploy the application in several of our strategic operating locations. As we have previously discussed, we believe our ongoing investment in technology provides us with a unique opportunity to deliver a state-of-the-art technology platform for our strategic operating partners and the end customers that we serve. At the same time, our new technology set will enable a number of productivity initiatives to stream-line our back-office processes and accelerate the realization of back-office cost synergies associated with existing and future acquisitions and can ultimately help facilitate revenue synergies across the platform.”

Crain continued: “We are encouraged by our improving results and remain committed to our long-standing strategy to deliver profitable growth through a combination of organic and acquisition growth initiatives. Our now more than 10-year first market advantage in executing our multi-brand strategy in consolidating agent-based forwarding networks, ongoing investment in technology and low leverage on our balance sheet puts us in a unique position to support further consolidation in the marketplace. We are patiently persistent in the pursuit of this long-term vision which we believe, over time, will deliver meaningful value for shareholders, our operating partners and the end customers that we serve.”

RADIANT LOGISTICS, INC.

Reconciliation of Net Revenue, Net Income (Loss) Allocable to Common Stockholders
to Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
(unaudited)

As used in this report, Net Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Net Revenue, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are presented herein because they are important metrics used by management to evaluate and understand the performance of the ongoing operations of Radiant’s business. For Adjusted Net Income, management uses a 24.5% tax rate for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 and a 31% tax rate the quarter ended September 30, 2017 to calculate the provision for income taxes before preferred dividend requirement to normalize Radiant’s tax rate to that of its competitors and to compare Radiant’s reporting periods with different effective tax rates. In addition, in arriving at Adjusted Net Income, the Company adjusts for certain non-cash charges and significant items that are not part of regular operating activities. These adjustments include depreciation and amortization, income taxes, change in contingent consideration, amortization of loan fees, write-off of loan fees, impairment of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related costs, transition costs, lease termination costs, litigation costs and non-recurring costs.

We commonly refer to the term “net revenues” when commenting about our Company and the results of operations. Net revenues are a Non-GAAP measure calculated as revenues less directly related operations and expenses attributed to the Company’s services. We believe net revenues are a better measurement than are total revenues when analyzing and discussing the effectiveness of our business and is used as a portion of a key metric the Company uses to discuss its progress.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure of income and does not include the effects of preferred stock dividends, interest and taxes, and excludes the “non-cash” effects of depreciation and amortization on long-term assets. Companies have some discretion as to which elements of depreciation and amortization are excluded in the EBITDA calculation. We exclude all depreciation charges related to technology and equipment, and all amortization charges (including amortization of leasehold improvements). We then further adjust EBITDA to exclude changes in fair value of contingent consideration, expenses specifically attributable to acquisitions, transition and lease termination costs, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, extraordinary items, share-based compensation expense, litigation expenses unrelated to our core operations, MM&D start-up costs and other non-cash charges. While management considers EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA useful in analyzing our results, it is not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, as presented, represent a useful method of assessing the performance of our operating activities, as they reflect our earnings trends without the impact of certain non-cash charges and other non-recurring charges. These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement the GAAP financial information by providing additional insight regarding results of operations to allow a comparison to other companies, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. However, these non-GAAP financial measures will not be defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other companies. Net Revenues, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any of the consolidated statements of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as an indication of Radiant’s operating performance or liquidity.
