"We continue to build on Cadre's impressive track record of margin expansion and have improved gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA margins in the year to date period by 250 and 300 basis points, respectively."

Mr. Kanders continued, "With the recent completion of our successful IPO, we have achieved an important milestone in our company's storied history that dates back over 55 years. We believe that we are in a strong position to take advantage of the attractive tailwinds driving demand for Cadre's mission critical first responder products, as we focus on seeking to accelerate growth organically, as well as through our robust acquisition pipeline. As part of our disciplined capital allocation approach, we are also pleased to have implemented a regular quarterly dividend policy."

Third Quarter and Nine Month 2021 Operating Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2021, Cadre generated net sales of $98.7 million, as compared to $105.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, Cadre generated net sales of $323.8 million, as compared to $297.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2021, Cadre generated gross profit of $39.3 million, as compared to $40.0 million for the prior year period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, Cadre generated gross profit of $131.5 million, as compared to $113.2 million for the prior year period.

Gross profit margin was 39.8% for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to 37.8% for the prior year period, mainly driven by favorable pricing and product mix.

Gross profit margin was 40.6% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to 38.1% for the prior year period, mainly driven by favorable pricing and product mix.

Net loss was $5.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to net income of $6.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily as a result of a loss on extinguishment of debt of $15.2 million in connection with the execution of a new credit agreement during the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Net income was $8.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $22.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, primarily as a result of a loss on extinguishment of debt, an increase in provision for income taxes due to the release of a valuation allowance on a portion of the Company's deferred tax assets in December 2020 and non-recurring transactions recognized in the period ended September 30, 2020, offset by improvements in gross profit due to increased sales, favorable pricing and product mix.

Cadre generated $15.4 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $15.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.6% for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to 14.2% for the prior year period,

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). This press release contains the non-GAAP measures: (i) earnings before interest, taxes, other income or expense, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), (ii) adjusted EBITDA, (iii) adjusted EBITDA margin, and (iv) LTM adjusted EBITDA . The Company believes that the presentation of certain non-GAAP measures, i.e.: (i) EBITDA, (ii) adjusted EBITDA, (iii) adjusted EBITDA margin, and (iv) LTM adjusted EBITDA, provide useful information for the understanding of its ongoing operations and enables investors to focus on period- over-period operating performance, and thereby enhances the user's overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance relative to past performance and provides, along with the nearest GAAP measures, a baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP financial measures within this press release. The Company cautions that non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company's reported GAAP results. Additionally, the Company notes that there can be no assurance that the above referenced non-GAAP financial measures are comparable to similarly titled financial measures used by other publicly traded companies.
