Quest Resource Holding Corporation Announces First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

FRISCO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Quest Resource Holding Corporation (OTCQB: QRHC), a leading provider of integrated sustainability and recycling solutions to businesses, today announced financial results for the first quarter 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • First quarter 2014 revenues of $38.2 million
  • Net loss decreased to $1.5 million from $3.3 million for the prior year first quarter
  • EBITDAS of $500,000 compared with $(700,000) for the first quarter of 2013
  • Company approved for listing on NASDAQ
  • Continued decrease in customer concentration
  • Restructured and relocated operations to reduce future operating expenses

For the first quarter of 2014, revenues increased to $38.2 million compared with $300,000 for the first quarter of 2013. Net loss decreased to $1.5 million from $3.3 million for the prior year first quarter. The loss per share on a basic and diluted basis was $(0.02) for the first quarter of 2014 compared with a loss per share of $(0.06) for the comparable quarter in 2013.

EBITDAS was $500,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared with ($700,000) for the prior year quarter. We use the non-GAAP measurement of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-related non-cash charges ("EBITDAS") to evaluate our performance. EBITDAS is a non-GAAP measure that we believe can be helpful in assessing our overall performance as an indicator of operating and earnings quality.

Gross profit margin increased to $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared with $300,000 for the comparable quarter in 2013.

"We entered 2014 on a high note with a $150 million revenue run rate and have seen the momentum continue into the first quarter. We are pleased to report positive EBITDAS, which is a good reflection of a quarter reported without the burden of significant non-recurring expenses we incurred in prior quarters. We believe we are poised to have another banner sales year as we are adding several new customer locations and have seen an increase in our bid flow," commented Brian Dick, President and CEO of the Company.

"We continue to see a decrease in customer concentration, as our largest client dropped by approximately 10% as a percentage of our total revenue. We are also pleased that Earth911 is now fully integrated into our operations and working towards a commercialization strategy, which includes a robust online marketplace for marketing recycled products," added Mr. Dick.

"Additionally, we are very pleased to have been approved for listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. We believe that the increased visibility that comes with this listing will lead to improved liquidity, which will ultimately benefit existing and future shareholders," Mr. Dick concluded.
