HERNANDO, Florida, March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Gross Margin Improves 323 Basis Points
Shareholders' Equity Increases to $5.4 Million
National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NWMH), today announced financial results and provided a business update for the year ended December 31, 2015.
Louis Paveglio, CEO of National Waste Management Holdings Inc., stated, "I am pleased to report our revenue increased 50% to $2.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The increase in revenue is primarily due to the acquisitions we completed in 2015 of Gateway Rolloff Services, L.P. ("Gateway") and Waste Recovery Enterprises, LLC, as well as a growing customer base. Gross margin for 2015 improved 323 basis points to 47% compared to 44% in 2014."
"We have effectively executed on our business strategy by acquiring facilities that increase our geographic footprint, augmenting services to existing customers, and attracting new customers in under serviced markets. In October, we acquired Waste Recovery Enterprises located in Bainbridge, New York. Waste Recovery Enterprises operates a permitted waste processing and disposal facility. The addition of this facility to National Waste's family of permitted facilities provides us with a northeastern presence and an exceptional platform to better serve and expand into key waste markets. In December, we acquired Gateway, a portable dumpster service with pick up and drop off collection, specializing in the removal of debris, garbage, waste, hauling construction, and demolition debris located in Odessa, Florida. This acquisition allows us to combine Gateways' roll-off services with our existing landfill business, while simultaneously offering better rates and comprehensive end-to-end solid waste solutions to our customers. We recently announced that we have successfully expanded and increased the profitability of Gateway since completing the acquisition in December. The feedback from customers has been extremely positive and demand for our services in the region continues to grow. We have identified several other attractive and highly accretive acquisition opportunities that we are actively evaluating and look forward to completing several of these later this year."
"At the end of last year, we announced that we secured a contract with Citrus County in Florida to process their yard waste, which is approximately 10,000-20,000 tons per year at their central landfill location. The terms of this agreement are for three years with three, one year extensions. We have an established relationship and strong foothold with the county and this contract allows us to expand regionally while gaining economies of scale."
"Most importantly, we have strengthened our balance sheet with shareholders' equity increasing to $5.4 million at the end of December 31, 2015 compared to a deficit of ($103,372) at the end of 2014. We have added an independent board member and approved an Employee Stock Ownership Plan to help recruit and retain leading industry talent. The increase in shareholders' equity and addition of another independent board member bring us closer to meeting all of the requirements for listing on a senior national stock exchange. We are in a period of very rapid growth and uplisting to a national exchange will provide us a stronger platform for acquisitions, while increasing our visibility within the investment community."
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $2.5 million versus $1.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. The increase in revenue was due to the acquisitions we completed last year as well as the addition of new customers and expanded sales to our existing customers. Gross profit for 2015 was $1.2 million or 47% of revenue versus $734,103 or 44% of revenue for the same period in 2014. Operating income for the year December 31, 2015 was $240,219 versus operating income of $248,700 for year ended December 31, 2014. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2015 was ($62,408) or ($0.001) earnings per share, versus net income of $157,139 or $0.003 earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2014. The loss in 2015 is due to the one time non cash write off of landfill acquisition deposits. Without this one time charge off, without adjusting for the change in taxes, the Company would have had net income of $237,592, an increase from prior year. The Company also incurred increased SG&A expenses to support the anticipated growth, as well as an increase in public company expenses in advance of the planned listing on a national exchange.
