The information being furnished hereunder discloses EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that EBITDA is a useful measure of evaluating its financial performance because of its focus on the Company’s results from operations before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is utilized for internal analysis of the Company. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to other financial measures determined under GAAP. However, EBITDA is commonly used by investors, financial analysts and rating agencies as an alternative measure of evaluating, comparing and rating operating performance. EBITDA presented by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
The information in this Form 8-K, including exhibits, is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of Form 8-K and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into any registration statement filed by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference.

GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC. REPORTS SECOND QUARTER RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Tulsa, OK-1/24/17—(OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reported sales for the three months ended November 30, 2016 totaled $9,221,711 compared to $4,420,210 for the prior period for an increase of $4,801,501, or 108%. Sales for the six months ended November 30, 2016 of $17,065,972 compared to $9,990,191 for the prior period for an increase of $7,075,781, or 71%.
Net income before preferred dividends for the three months and six months ended November 30, 2016, were $258,826 and $212,434, and, respectively, compared to $115,151 and $165,547, respectively, for the prior periods. Greystone recorded a net income for the three months ended November 30, 2016, available to common shareholders after preferred dividends of $41,109 compared to a net loss available to common shareholders of $(22,420) for the prior period. Greystone recorded a net loss available to common stockholders after preferred dividends of $(76,330), compared to $(113,735) for the six months ended November 30, 2016.
Greystone’s EBITDA (net income before stock compensation costs, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the six months ended November 30, 2016 was $2,004,389 compared to $1,294,750 for the prior period.
“The addition of the previously announced pallet leasing customer continues to have a significant impact on Greystone’s sales and operations,” stated Warren Kruger, President and CEO. “The second quarter of our fiscal year 2017 began to show a turnaround in earnings and this trend is expected to continue throughout the remaining part of this year. Unfortunately, our two newest machines were not operating at full capacity and our two oldest injection machines were down awaiting parts during this quarter. These unexpected delays affected our efficiency and margin goals for the quarter. To meet the increasing demand for our pallets, we have ordered a Milacron injection-molding machine to add to the three similar machines acquired during the past year. We anticipate this machine will become operational during the latter part of this year. Improving the returns for our shareholders is a continuing major goal for Greystone as we review operations for improvements in operating efficiencies and cost containment to achieve better margins.”
Greystone Logistics is a “Green” manufacturing and leasing company that reprocesses and sells recycled plastic and designs, manufactures, sells high quality 100% recycled plastic pallets that provide logistical solutions needed by a wide range of industries such as the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical and consumer products. The Company’s technology, including that used in its injection molding equipment, proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins and patented pallet designs, allows production of high quality pallets quickly and at lower costs than many processes. The recycled plastic for its pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin. Excess plastic not used in production of pallets may be reprocessed for resale.
This press release includes certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws.

Actual results may vary materially from the forward-looking statements.
