HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 10, 2022 / Stabilis Solutions, Inc., ("Stabilis" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:SLNG), an energy transition company that provides turnkey clean energy production, storage, transportation and fueling solutions primarily using liquefied natural gas ("LNG") to multiple end markets across North America, today reported its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

For the second quarter that ended June 30, 2022, Stabilis reported revenues of $25.8 million, an increase of 12% sequentially and 61% higher than the second quarter last year. Revenues from the Company's LNG segment and power delivery segment were $23.2 million and $2.6 million respectively.

Westy Ballard, President and CEO, commented "Driven by increased volumes and higher natural gas prices, revenue in the quarter was strong across multiple sectors including aerospace, mining, utilities, and oil & gas. Diversification across multiple end-markets speaks to the continued demand from a variety of customers which we are really excited about."

Net loss for the quarter was $2.2 million compared to a net loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2022 and a loss of $1.0 million in the second quarter of last year. The current quarter loss included a $0.9 million unrealized loss on the mark to market of natural gas options utilized to hedge a fixed price customer contract and $0.2 million related to an unutilized minimum purchase obligation.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), a non-GAAP measure, was $1.6 million for the quarter compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2022 and $0.5 million in the second quarter of last year.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.4 million for the quarter and $3.7 million year to date. Total liquidity at June 30, 2022 was $5.1 million consisting of cash and available credit under the Company's loan facility.

Ballard continued, "While we are still working to optimize our current operations, we continue to steadily advance our efforts on several exciting growth initiatives, particularly aerospace, where in the first half of this year, we delivered almost double all of 2021 delivered volumes and it now accounts for approximately 10% of our revenue. We see continued growth ahead for the aerospace and marine bunkering sectors and I look forward to sharing these developments throughout the second half of the year."

Management will host a conference call on Thursday, August 11, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. eastern time (9:00 a.m. central).

Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to assess the performance and operating results of our business. EBITDA is defined as Earnings before Interest (includes interest income and interest expense), Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted for certain special items that occur during the reporting period, as noted below. We include EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance. Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA is a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"). Accordingly, they should not be used as an indicator of, or an alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements, such as debt service requirements. Because the definition of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may vary among companies and industries, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands).
