ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Market: ARCW; "ARC") ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. ("ARC" or "the Company") reported today fourth quarter 2013 net income of $1.6 million and $3.0 million for fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.  The fourth quarter and full year results are driven by improved performance in all of our manufacturing operations and higher sales revenue resulting from the reverse acquisition between ARC and Quadrant Metals Technologies (QMT)  and the acquisition of Advanced Forming Technologies, Inc. (AFT) and AFT-Hungary Kft., (AFT-H).  ARC also reported adjusted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS) of $0.30 for the fourth quarter 2013 and $0.85 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the Company's total sales were $68.5 million, growth of 125.3%, or $38.1 million, over $30.4 million in fiscal year 2012.  Sales for the fourth quarter ending June 30, 2013 amounted to $19.5 million compared to $7.7 million in the prior year fourth quarter an increase of 153.7% or $11.8 million.

Growth in the precision components segment of the Company's business has been driven by increased demand for components manufactured by the Company's three metal injection molding ("MIM") businesses. These three companies, FloMet LLC, AFT, and AFT-H are the pioneers and recognized technological leaders in the industry. MIM is a cost effective method of producing high volume precision metal components and is gaining increasing adoption throughout industries such as medical devices, automotive, consumer durables, defense and firearms. The MIM businesses have had a positive impact on the Company's sales and we anticipate sales to continue to increase as the market demand for components increases.  The Company's continuous improvement focus and strategic investments in technologically advanced capital equipment, like robotics and automation, have allowed it to increase efficiencies and reduce costs while also significantly increasing available capacity for growing demand.  The Company reported 27% gross margins for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 and 28% in the fourth quarter 2013. 

Commenting on the recent MIM performance, Robert Marten, CEO of the QMT-MIM division stated, "We now unequivocally have the world leader in MIM and have integrated our three MIM factories into a world class, global MIM operation.  We are focused on continuing to provide exceptional product quality and service to our customers, as well as further strengthening our position in the MIM industry by growing our existing operations, vertically integrating and opportunistically evaluating acquisitions."

"We are very pleased to now run the world's leader in MIM and look forward to continued growth in that division," said ARC Chairman and CEO Jason Young.  "While we continue to build our MIM division, we are trying to build similar market dominance in our other manufacturing divisions, through organic growth, as well as acquisitions both horizontally and vertically.  We are also big believers in US manufacturing, as well as bringing technology and innovation to traditional manufacturing.  We have brought significant technology to our various businesses, and view the continued adoption of robotics, automation and 3D printing as key drivers to growth in manufacturing, particularly in the US."

ARC reported Adjusted Earnings Per Share (Adjusted EPS) of $0.30 for the fourth quarter ending June 30, 2013 and $0.85 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 compared to prior fiscal year's Earning Per Share (EPS) of $1.12 and $0.24 for the prior year's fourth quarter. Adjusted Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") for the full year was $10.1 million.  Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures.  Adjusted earnings represent results of operations of the company net of non-cash amortization of debt discounts, and net of the merger expenses related to the reverse acquisition transaction between ARC and QMT and the acquisition of AFT and AFT-H.  We have provided this non-GAAP financial information to aid in better understanding the company's performance.
