PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Limbach Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:LMB) (“Limbach” or “the Company”) today announced that it will be filing a Form 12b-25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to extend the date for filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 by 15 days in order to finalize the review of its historical cutoff procedures for accruing job cost expense associated with work in progress as well as selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. Under Limbach’s revenue recognition policy, any adjustments to the timing of job cost expense also impact the timing of revenue recognition. Management is continuing to work diligently with its auditors to complete the Company’s audit.
The Company reiterates prior guidance for its year ended December 31, 2016 for revenues to be in excess of $407 million. The Company expects Adjusted EBITDA* to fall within a range from $16 million to $17 million, and net income (loss) to fall within a range from $(0.5 million) to $0.5 million, based upon information available to the Company as of today. A reconciliation of estimated Adjusted EBITDA to estimated net income (loss) is provided below. Limbach will provide updated guidance for FY 2017 upon issuance of its fourth quarter and year-end financial results.
Limbach intends to provide further communications regarding its financial results reporting date, including a conference call to discuss its results, as soon as an audit completion date can be reliably determined, which the Company expects will be in advance of the extended filing date of April 17, 2017.
The estimated full year 2016 results above and in the reconciliation table below are preliminary and unaudited. They are subject to the completion and finalization of fourth-quarter and year-end financial and accounting procedures, and reflect management’s estimate based solely upon information available to management as of the date of this press release. Further information learned during that completion and finalization may alter the final results. In addition, the preliminary estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for full year financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In addition to the completion of our testing and the audit by our auditors, factors that could cause actual results to differ from those described above are set forth below under “Forward-Looking Statements.” Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance upon our preliminary estimates.
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, taxes, and non-operating expenses such as management and consulting fees, loss from extinguishment of debt and expenses associated with our 2016 business combination transaction. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance for the current period exclusive of expenses that will not reoccur. We understand that Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance and to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EBITDA. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, however, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. When assessing our operating performance, investors and others should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, the results presented by Adjusted EBITDA cannot be achieved without incurring the costs that the measure excludes below.
