Highlights of the Quarter

(Unless otherwise noted, all financial amounts in this news release are expressed in U.S. dollars.)

  • Copper Alloy division sales improved by 25.1% as compared to the prior year period and rose sequentially by 21.6%. This marked the fourth consecutive quarter of rising sales for the division, as it continues to grow its business following the facility consolidation and expansion of its state-of-the-art copper alloy foundry facility in Franklin, Indiana.
  • IBC consolidated sales declined 16.4% in the quarter, driven largely by lower demand for the Engineered Materials division's beryllium-aluminum "BeAl" products used to manufacture semiconductor chips. Sales of these products in the prior-year period were at a historic high.
  • Gross profit and gross margins in the quarter improved in the Copper Alloys Division over the prior-year period, but declined in the Engineered Materials division, due to lower sales to commercial markets and by lower yields.
  • The Company reported a loss for the quarter of $2 million ($0.02 per share), as compared to a loss of $581,000 ($0.01) in the quarter ended September 30, 2021.
  • IBC to host live investor webcast at 1 PM Eastern on Thursday, December 1, 2022 to discuss the Company's recently issued financial results and its future growth plans. Participants can join the webcast here: https://zoom.us/j/97024063582?pwd=NWlOVXF2Um81dVRJTFhKSkZSZ3VzUT09

FRANKLIN, IN / ACCESSWIRE / November 29, 2022 / IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. ("IBC" or the "Company") (TSXV:IB); (OTCQB:IAALF) announces its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Consolidated sales declined 16.4% over the prior-year period, driven largely by lower demand for the Engineered Materials division's beryllium-aluminum "BeAl" products used to manufacture semiconductor chips as compared to the prior-year period, where demand was at a historic high. Copper Alloys division improved by 25.1% in the quarter and rose sequentially by 21.6%.

Gross profit and gross margins in the quarter improved in the Copper Alloys division to $432,000 and 9.8%, respectively, as compared to the prior year periods, but declined in the Engineered Materials division due to lower sales to commercial markets and by lower yields.

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA[1] for quarter was ($936,000), which compared to Adjusted EBITDA1 of $209,000 in the corresponding quarter of fiscal 2022. The Company reported a loss for the quarter of $2 million ($0.02 per share), as compared to a loss of $581,000 ($0.01) in the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

"It was a challenging quarter for our Engineered Materials division, but the Copper Alloys division continued on its growth trajectory since completing our consolidation and modernization of our Indiana foundry facility, with the Copper Alloys team booking their fourth consecutive quarter of higher sales," said IBC CEO and Chairman Mark A. Smith. "In fact, Copper Alloys sales gains in the quarter were primarily due to the demand and availability of internally produced alloys from our vertically integrated Indiana foundry."

"The Engineered Material division's lower sales are largely due to lower demand for beryllium-aluminum products used to manufacture semiconductor chips as compared to the prior-year period, where demand was at a historic high," Mr. Smith said. "Profitability in the Engineered Materials division was also impacted by a decline in yield, but it appears that the team has largely addressed this issue, as yields are showing considerable improvement so far in the current quarter. We continue to pursue many exciting new sales opportunities for beryllium-aluminum products in the defense sector, and I and the Board look forward to seeing more of those efforts begin to reach fruition in 2023," Mr. Smith added.

LIVE INVESTOR WEBCAST

IBC will host a live investor webcast at 1 PM Eastern on Thursday, December 1, 2022 to discuss the Company's recently issued financial results and its future growth plans. Participants can join the webcast here: https://zoom.us/j/97024063582?pwd=NWlOVXF2Um81dVRJTFhKSkZSZ3VzUT09

NON-IFRS MEASURES

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS, IBC uses "operating income (loss)" and "Adjusted EBITDA", which are non-IFRS financial measures. IBC believes that operating income (loss) helps identify underlying trends in the business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain income or expenses that the Company includes in loss for the period, and provides useful information about core operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past performance and future prospects, and allows for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by management in financial and operational decision-making. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful indicator for cash flow generated by the business that is independent of IBC's capital structure.

Operating income (loss)1 and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to loss for the period or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of our operating performance. Operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to IBC's data.

OPERATING INCOME (LOSS)

Operating income (loss) represents income or loss for the quarter, excluding foreign exchange loss, interest expense, interest income, other income (expense) and income taxes that the Company does not believe are reflective of its core operating performance during the periods presented. A reconciliation of the quarter and year-to-date loss to operating income (loss) follows:
