Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On August 31, 2021, Greystone Logistics, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release regarding results of operations for Greystone Logistics, Inc. for the year ended May 31, 2021. A copy of the press release dated August 31, 2021 is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
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 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE YEAR ENDED MAY 31, 2021
GREYSTONE LOGISTICS, INC.
Tulsa, OK—08/31/2021—(OTCQB:GLGI). Tulsa-based Greystone Logistics, Inc. reports earnings for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2021.
Greystone recorded net income available to common stockholders (net income less preferred dividends and income from non-controlling interests) for fiscal year 2021 of $3,030,165, or $0.11 per share, compared to $4,301,585, or $0.15 per share, in fiscal year 2020. EBITDA for fiscal year 2021 was $12,080,272 compared to $12,152,793 in 2020. Greystone’s net income was $3,625,526 in fiscal year 2021 compared to $4,962,570 in fiscal year 2020 noting that net income in fiscal year 2020 included the effect of a decrease in the valuation allowance for net operating losses of approximately $1.4 million.
Sales for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2021 were $64,925,059 compared to $76,204,608 in the prior year. The decrease of $11,279,549 in sales from the prior year was primarily due to lowered pricing resulting from a customer delivering a portion of their own raw materials used in the manufacturing process of certain pallets.
“I am overwhelmed by the strength of our year despite the debilitating effects from COVID-19, labor shortages and increases in the price of plastic.,” stated CEO Warren Kruger. Kruger continued, “Operational issues with new equipment occurred during the year but our maintenance personnel addressed the issues immediately to minimize downtime and recurrences from suppliers. Our employees worked overtime to keep the machines operating and navigate through this turbulent period. They deserve the credit for our accomplishments.”
“During fiscal year 2021, Greystone reduced its debt and financing leases by approximately $5,865,000. In June 2021, Greystone’s loan under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act in the amount of $3,034,000 was forgiven resulting in a like increase in the company’s equity. As a result, we believe that Greystone is well-positioned to provide capital for future growth.”
“The impact of COVID-19 continues to create much uncertainty in the workplace and prices for plastic. We anticipate that the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 will see the impact of these operational issues. However, the demand for our pallets has never been greater, and I am confident that the remaining portion of fiscal year 2022 will show positive results for Greystone and our shareholders.”
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. The Company’s technology, including a proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins used in the injection molding equipment and patented pallet designs, allows production of high-quality pallets more rapidly and at lower costs than many processes. The recycled plastic for Greystone’s pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin.
This press release includes certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws.
