“Our team adapted quickly to the difficult COVID-19 market environment working closely with customers to ensure high levels of service, all the while focusing on the health and safety of our employees.  Our customer end markets that were the most affected in April recovered faster than anticipated through each month of the quarter.  However, overall volume trends are negative year over year.  Due to the flexible cost structure of our asset light model, as well as actions we took to reduce expenses, we showed a solid improvement in Adjusted EBITDA and generated positive cash flow,” said S. Ray Hatch, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Since the end of the quarter, we bolstered the balance sheet, updating our line of credit with more favorable terms, and raising equity capital to support our acquisition strategy.”

Mr. Hatch continued, “While the pace and extent of the recovery remains uncertain, our flexible business model, strong balance sheet, and the essential nature of our services, position us to continue to weather this challenging environment.”

Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, a non-GAAP financial measure, "Adjusted EBITDA," is presented. From time-to-time, Quest considers and uses this supplemental measure of operating performance in order to provide an improved understanding of underlying performance trends. Quest believes it is useful to review, as applicable, both (1) GAAP measures that include (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, (iii) stock-based compensation expense, (iv) income tax expense, and (v) certain other adjustments, and (2) non-GAAP measures that exclude such items. Quest presents this non-GAAP measure because it considers it an important supplemental measure of Quest's performance. Quest's definition of this adjusted financial measure may differ from similarly named measures used by others. Quest believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by eliminating potential differences caused by the existence and timing of certain expense items that would not otherwise be apparent on a GAAP basis. This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP measures. (See attached table "Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA.")
