(NASDAQ:RVLT) (“Revolution Lighting”), a leader in advanced LED lighting technology, today provided a business update following President and Chief Financial Officer Charlie Schafer’s presentation at Craig-Hallum’s 4 th Annual Alpha Select Conference on September 26, 2013 in New York City.
Key highlights of Schafer’s presentation and Revolution Lighting’s financial performance included:
- A robust pipeline of $150M in actionable opportunities over the next three to twelve months
- Expected organic growth of greater than 50% for 2014-2016
- Target gross margins of 35% or greater for 2014-2016
- Expected pro forma revenue of approximately $17M for the second half of 2013
- Expected full year pro forma 2013 revenue of approximately $35M
- Adjusted EBITDA margins of 15% or greater for 2014-2016
Schafer indicated that pro forma revenue for the second half of 2013 will be approximately $17 million. As a result of certain international orders coming in later than expected, third quarter revenue is expected to be between $5-6 million and fourth quarter revenue is expected to be in excess of $10 million. Pro forma revenue for all of 2013 is expected to total approximately $35 million after giving effect to the Relume and Seesmart acquisitions, representing 100% organic growth over 2012 pro forma revenues.
Schafer added, “2013 has been a successful year for Revolution Lighting. We expanded our distribution network and completed the acquisition of Relume Technologies, which broadened our product portfolio, and strengthened our engineering and management capabilities. We are now well-positioned for the anticipated growth to come in 2014 and beyond.”Schafer’s presentation and live audio webcast are accessible via the Revolution Lighting website at the following link: http://ir.rvlti.com/ir-calendar About Revolution Lighting Technologies Inc.
