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.

LOGISTICS, INC. REPORTS RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE
QUARTER AND NINE MONTHS ENDED FEBRUARY 29, 2020
GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC.
Tulsa, OK—4/14/20—(OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports record quarterly sales and earnings for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Greystone’s net income was $1,964,942 and $231,430 for the quarters ended February 29, 2020 and February 28, 2019, respectively. Net income was $3,056,926 for the nine months ended February 29, 2020 compared to $1,293,283 in the same period last year. For the nine months ended February 29, 2020, Greystone’s EBITDA, earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization, was $9,109,657 compared to $6,417,907 for the comparable prior year.
Sales for the nine months ended February 29, 2020 were $57,906,777 compared to $50,163,707 for the prior period for an increase of $7,743,070, or 15%. Sales for the three months ended February 29, 2020 were $19,738,806 compared to $17,224,467 for the comparable period of the prior year for an increase of $2,514,339, or 15%. Greystone’s sales to major customers in the nine months ended February 29, 2020 were 87% of sales compared to 85% in the same period last year.
“Greystone had a tremendous third quarter of the current year recording earnings of $0.06 per share of common stock compared to $0.00 in the prior period”, stated CEO Warren Kruger. Kruger continued, “Earnings per share of common stock for the nine months ended February 29, 2020 were $0.09 compared to $0.03 in the prior period. The Company had financing lease and bank debt principal reduction for the nine-month period ended February 29, 2020, of $4,038,357. Sales price increases on certain pallet lines along with improvements in production costs were attributable to the increased earnings in the current quarter. We will be adding one new machine to replace an older machine during the fourth quarter which will increase our pallet production. We are striving to maintain our momentum during the fourth quarter but are uncertain as to the economic impact evolving from the COVID-19 virus. We anticipate some decrease in our production rates because of the impact to our workforce from some employees electing to stay home and declines in recruitment. We believe that the Company will have a solid quarter for sales and earnings despite the hardships created by the COVID-19.”
Greystone Logistics is a “Green” manufacturing company that reprocesses 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.
