For the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, Stabilis reported revenues of $16.1 million, the Company's highest ever second quarter revenues, which was an $11.0 million or 221% increase from the same period in 2020. The Company's previous highest second quarter revenues were $11.1 million in 2019. Stabilis has posted the Company's two highest revenue quarters ever in the first two quarters of 2021 with $33.7 million of revenues through the first six months of 2021.

Revenues from Stabilis' LNG segment were $14.4 million, a $10.4 million or 257% increase compared to Q2 of 2020. The Company delivered 13.7 million gallons of LNG to customers during the second quarter, representing a year-over-year increase of 9.1 million gallons or 197%. The Company's power delivery segment contributed $1.7 million in revenue, a year-over-year increase of $0.7 million or 70%.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ('EBITDA') was $1.6 million, a $2.3 million improvement over the second quarter 2020. Adjusted EBITDA (excluding non-recurring items) was $0.5 million, a $1.3 million improvement over the second quarter of 2020.

Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was a loss of ($1.0 million) an improvement of $2.4 million compared to the same period last year.

'Stabilis just posted the best two quarters of revenue performance in the Company's history in 2021, and our second quarter 2021 revenue was a second quarter record,' said Jim Reddinger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stabilis. 'We are optimistic about the remainder of 2021 with a number of new customer projects and investment opportunities ahead of us.'

On June 1, Stabilis completed the acquisition of an LNG production facility in Port Allen, Louisiana. The facility is strategically located along the Gulf Coast and will support some of the Company's largest customers in the region and accelerate Stabilis' growth in the LNG marine fueling market. The Port Allen facility has nameplate production capacity of 30,000 LNG gallons per day which increases Stabilis' total capacity by approximately 30 percent.

'The Port Allen LNG production facility acquisition was an important milestone in Stabilis' growth plans,' said Reddinger. 'Not only does it increase our production capacity substantially and improve our access to the marine fueling market, but it also demonstrates the significant consolidation potential that exists in our distributed LNG markets. Stabilis will continue to evaluate accretive acquisition opportunities going forward.'

On May 4, the Company announced a MOU with the Port of Corpus Christi Authority to develop and market marine fueling capabilities to attract LNG-capable vessels. On August 2, the Company announced a second marine fueling MOU with the Galveston Wharves, giving the Company two major LNG fueling locations in the Gulf Coast. The marine bunkering market is expected to be a significant growth driver for Stabilis in 2022 and beyond.

Reddinger continued, 'The LNG marine fueling market is projected to grow rapidly as ship operators and ports seek to meet their environmental and sustainability objectives. We expect the global demand for LNG marine fuel will grow over 30% per year for at least the next five years because LNG fuel is a practical and cost effective way for ship owners and operators to reduce their harmful emissions. Stabilis plans to add additional ports to our marine fueling network soon, and we are targeting our first marine LNG fueling events for later this year. As our marine customers pursue their environmental, commercial, and operational goals in the energy transition, Stabilis will be there to support them.'

On April 13, the Company announced that it had secured a $10 million credit facility to support its growth in working capital needs. The credit facility has a 10-year term and allows Stabilis to draw a principal amount of up to $10 million during the first 3 years of the agreement. The note is interest bearing only for the first three years and fully amortizing beginning in the fourth year. The note bears a fixed interest rate of 5.75% through April 8, 2026 and U.S. Prime Rate plus 2.5% thereafter. The note is secured by a portion of Stabilis' cryogenic rolling stock.

On April 29, the Company was approved for listing and commenced trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC under the ticker symbol 'SLNG' to further enhance its visibility in the marketplace and attract a larger pool of interested investors.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2021 were $3.3 million as compared with $3.1 million, as of March 31, 2021.

This press release includes 'forward-looking statements' within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and within the meaning of Section 27a of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21e of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Any actual results may differ from expectations, estimates and projections presented or implied and, consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as 'can,' 'believes,' 'anticipates,' 'expects,' 'could,' 'will,' 'plan,' 'may,' 'should,' 'predicts,' 'potential' and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

Such forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance, but reflect the parties' current beliefs, based on information currently available. Most of these factors are outside the parties' control and are difficult to predict. A number of factors could cause actual events, performance or results to differ materially from the events, performance and results discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such differences include, among other things: the future performance of Stabilis, future demand for and price of LNG, availability and price of natural gas, unexpected costs, and general economic conditions.

The foregoing list of factors is not exclusive.

Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to assess the performance and operating results of our business. EBITDA is defined as Earnings before Interest (includes interest income and interest expense), Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted for certain special items that occur during the reporting period, as noted below. We include EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance. Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA is a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ('GAAP'). Accordingly, they should not be used as an indicator of, or an alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements, such as debt service requirements. Because the definition of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may vary among companies and industries, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands).

*Special items in Q2 of 2021 include forgiveness of indebtedness of a Payroll Protection Act Loan. There were no special items in Q2 of the prior year.
