Radiant Logistics Announces Results for First Fiscal Quarter Ended September 30, 2011

Posts Record Results with Total Revenues of $71.8 Million and Net Revenues of $21.3 Million, Both Up Over 50% Over the Comparable Prior Year Period

Nov 14, 2011, 16:15 ET from Radiant Logistics, Inc.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiant Logistics, Inc. (OTC QB: RLGT), a domestic and international logistics services company, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110606/CL14193LOGO)

For the three months ended September 30, 2011, Radiant reported net income of $655,000 on $71.8 million of revenues, or $0.02 per basic and fully diluted share, including $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA Distribution Services, Inc. ("DBA") which are principally personnel costs that are being eliminated in connection with the winding down of DBA's historical back-office operations as these functions are being transitioned to the Company's headquarters in Bellevue, Washington.  For the three months ended September 30, 2010, Radiant reported net income of $783,000 on $46.4 million of revenues, or $0.03 per basic and fully diluted share.

The Company also reported adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $1,639,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, which includes $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1,709,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  A reconciliation of the Company's adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure appears at the end of this release. Excluding the $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with the Company's acquisition of DBA, the Company would have reported $1,922,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011, for an increase of $213,000.

The Company has also provided additional prior period analysis using pro forma results of operations presented as if Radiant had acquired DBA as of July 1, 2009 which is included in the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 and filed November 14, 2011.

"We continue to make good progress in integrating DBA and delivered solid growth in gross and net revenues for our first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011," said Bohn Crain, Chairman and CEO. "For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we posted record revenues of $71.8 million, an improvement of $25.5 million or 54.9% over the comparable prior year period.  Net transportation revenues also increased 50.4% to $21.2 million as compared to $14.1 million for the comparable prior year period.  As we look at our operating costs as a function of net revenues, we saw reductions in agent commission expense (from 69.7% to 65.4%) partially offset by increases in our personnel costs (from 11.0% to 13.6%).  This general dynamic is as expected with the composition of our network now including significant company owned operations in Newark and Los Angeles.  We were less fortunate with respect to our selling, general and administrative expenses during the quarter which were 12.5% of net revenues for the quarter, as compared to 7.5% of net revenues for the comparable prior year period. These higher costs were driven principally by non-recurring legal expenses (approximately $300,000 in total) which we incurred in connection with transactions in progress, capital market initiatives and a small number of other individually immaterial legal matters. We expect our sales, general and administrative costs to revert to more normalized levels in future quarters, subject of course, to the productivity of our acquisition pipeline."

"For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we also reported adjusted EBITDA of $1,639,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, which includes $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with our acquisition of DBA, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $1,709,000 for the comparable prior year period, for a decrease of $70,000. Excluding the $283,000 in non-recurring transition costs associated with our acquisition of DBA, we would have reported $1,922,000 in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011, for an increase of $213,000. In addition, there is a total of $231,000 in non-recurring legal costs, which if excluded, would further increase our adjusted EBITDA to a total of $2,153,000."

Mr. Crain continued, "We believe our long-standing business strategy will continue to deliver positive results and sustain our trend of double digit growth going forward.  From our current platform, we believe profitable growth can be best achieved by continuing to bring value to the agent-based forwarding community and continuing to execute our three-prong strategy of first, providing continuous improvement to our existing network participants in terms of technology, buy rates and enhanced service offerings; second, building upon the success of our organic growth initiative by on-boarding additional agent stations; and third, opportunistically pursuing acquisition opportunities, including strategic opportunities within the community of agent-based forwarders. Through this process we have identified and are in conversations with a select number of potential partners that could complement our existing network.  I look forward to updating you on our progress as these opportunities continue to develop."

Supplemental Pro Forma Information

We believe that supplemental disclosure of our adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation, unusual items and other non-cash costs is a useful measure for investors because it eliminates the effect of certain non-cash costs and provides an important metric for our business.  A reconciliation of annual pro forma adjusted EBITDA amounts to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure is as follows:

RADIANT LOGISTICS, INC.
Reconciliation of EBITDA to Net Income and Net Cash Provided By Operating Activities
(UNAUDITED)  


As used in this report, adjusted EBITDA means earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for stock-based compensation, transaction and severance costs and other non-cash charges consistent with the financial covenants of our senior credit facility.  We believe that adjusted EBITDA, as presented, represents a useful method of assessing the performance of our operating activities, as it reflects our earnings trends without the impact of certain non-cash charges and other non-recurring charges.  Adjusted EBITDA is also used by our creditors in assessing debt covenant compliance.  We understand that although securities analysts frequently use EBITDA in their evaluation of companies, it is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.  EBITDA is not intended as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance, nor as an alternative to any other measure of performance in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to both net income and cash flow provided by operating activities:
