PR Newswire

DALLAS, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reddy Ice Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: RDDYQ) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. 

Revenues for the first quarter of 2012 were $44.3 million, compared to $40.8 million in the same quarter of 2011.  The Company's net loss was $44.3 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared to net loss of $39.1 million in the same period of 2011.  Net loss per share was $1.92 in the first quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss per share of $1.72 in the same period of 2011. 

Adjusted EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and the effects of certain other items was negative $8.9 million in the first quarter of 2012 versus negative $8.7 million in the same period of 2011. A discussion regarding the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA in this press release, including reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to EBITDA and net loss, is set forth below in the section titled, "SUPPLEMENTAL DISCLOSURE REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION." 

As a result of the ongoing restructuring transactions, the Company recognized $0.6 million of restructuring costs and $3.8 million of reorganization costs in the first quarter of 2012. Furthermore, during the first quarter of 2012 the Company recorded $2.5 million of expense for costs incurred in connection with refinancing activities related to debt agreements intended to preserve the Company's liquidity position that will no longer be consummated.  No such costs were incurred in the first quarter of 2011.

Effective Thursday, December 29, 2011, the Company's stock was quoted on the OTCBB and OTCQB under the symbol ''RDDY''. As a result of the Company's bankruptcy filing, on April 12, 2012 the Company's symbol was changed to "RDDYQ".

SUPPLEMENTAL DISCLOSURE REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

EBITDA represents the Company's consolidated net loss before income taxes, interest and depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA as further adjusted to give effect to unusual items, non-cash items, Reddy Ice Holdings, Inc. ("Reddy Holdings") gains and expenses and other adjustments set forth below, such additional adjustments being required to calculate covenant ratios and compliance under the Company's new credit facility.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not presentations made in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and are not measures of financial condition or profitability.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for "net loss", the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, as an indicator of operating performance.

By presenting Adjusted EBITDA, the Company intends to provide investors with a better understanding of its core operating results to measure past performance as well as prospects for the future.  The Company evaluates operating performance based on several measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, as the Company believes it is an important measure of the operational strength of its business.  Furthermore, the additional adjustments included in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA are required to calculate covenant ratios and compliance under the Company's credit facility.

Adjusted EBITDA as we have presented it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily a measure of the Company's ability to fund its cash needs, as it excludes certain financial information when compared to "net loss".  Users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions which are excluded.
