Commenting on the third quarter 2017 results, Ian Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Continuing the trend noted in the first half of 2017, total and organic revenue increased in the third quarter of 2017 compared to 2016. Our gross margin ratio increased to 12% from 8% and our operating expense ratio, excluding the $780,000 expense related to a one-time, estimated equipment remediation efforts to comply with newly promulgated West Virginia regulations, decreased to 42% from 58%. The $780,000 remediation accrual is management's current best estimate and the actual expense and related cash outflow in future periods could be materially different. A positive outcome of this remediation effort is that after its completion, we expect to have feedstock that could have a value of up to $300,000, which is dependent on pricing at the time, and which would be a reduction to the expense recorded in the current period. The senior management team is diligently pursuing a number of options and strategies to mitigate the potential exposure of this non-cash charge and as we progress in any one direction, we will advise shareholders promptly of any such developments."

Continued Mr. Rhodes: "More important, we have made significant investments during the quarter to support the future growth of our Company, including adding personnel in both customer facing and support functions and consulting and other costs associated with systems and other infrastructure projects, all of which had a negative impact on our third quarter results."

Mr. Rhodes added, "From a capital and liquidity standpoint, during the third quarter, we significantly reduced our debt as we closed our rights offering that raised aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $2.29 million, including $670,000 in cash and $1.62 million in redemption of previously issued notes. We also repaid the remaining 8% promissory notes issued in December 2016 through a combination of shares of our common stock at a per share price of $0.08 and cash. As a result of these transactions, the previously issued $1.7 million 8% notes have been repaid in full."

Effective January 1, 2017, the Company has two segments, Consumer and Industrial. Presented below are the third quarter 2017 financial results for each segment as well as reconciling items to the consolidated results.

The operating expenses were negatively impacted by a $780,000 expense related to estimated equipment remediation efforts to comply with West Virginia regulations that became effective June 30, 2017, investments during the quarter to support the future growth of our Company, including adding personnel in both customer facing and support functions and consulting, costs associated with systems and other infrastructure projects and amortization of intangibles related to the businesses and assets acquired in December 2016.

Business Update

As previously reported, the Company's facilities sustained minimal damage from the recent hurricanes and are up and running. We continue to keep those impacted by the recent hurricanes in our thoughts and prayers.

Our West Virginia facility was on-line for the entire second and third quarters and was a significant driver of our sales growth during the third quarter.

We have completed the buildout of our sales team and are now focused on providing them with the tools to identify opportunities and grow sales, including training and product literature.

In response to the growing transportation needs of our company and the continued tightening of the third party long-haul trucking market, we successfully launched GlyEco Logistics and entered the long-haul trucking market in the 3rd quarter of 2017. We believe this will improve our customer service and more effectively manage our transportation costs.

We continue to focus on scaling our business in such areas as operations and customer care to effectively support the expected sales growth in the coming quarters.

1. This is an expected one-time expense related to estimated equipment remediation efforts to comply with new West Virginia regulations.

Presented above is the non-GAAP financial measure representing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation (which we refer to as "Adjusted EBITDA") and the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss. Adjusted EBITDA should be viewed as supplemental to, and not as an alternative for, net income (loss) and cash flows from operations calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management as an additional measure of our Company's performance for purposes of business decision-making, including developing budgets, managing expenditures, and evaluating potential acquisitions or divestitures. Period-to-period comparisons of Adjusted EBITDA help our management identify additional trends in our Company's financial results that may not be shown solely by period-to-period comparisons of net income (loss) and cash flows from operations. In addition, we may use Adjusted EBITDA in the incentive compensation programs applicable to many of our employees in order to evaluate our Company's performance. Further, we believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in their analysis of our results and helps investors make comparisons between our company and other companies that may have different capital structures, different effective income tax rates and tax attributes, different capitalized asset values and/or different forms of employee compensation. Our management recognizes that Adjusted EBITDA has inherent limitations because of the excluded items, particularly those items that are recurring in nature. In order to compensate for those limitations, management also reviews the specific items that are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, but included in net income (loss), as well as trends in those items.
