Micron’s management team was proactive in planning so we could be as prepared as possible to react to the many external and internal changes affecting the business. Our operations team has done an excellent job maintaining consistency in quality and delivery. Our strong relationships with our customers, bank and the business community in Fitchburg and the Commonwealth have been key in navigating through these unchartered waters.”
CFO Wayne Coll commented, “On August 25, 2020, we announced that we entered into a purchase and sale agreement for the sale and leaseback of our main manufacturing facility. Although the original purchaser was unable to complete their due diligence in the time provided, we were able to promptly identify alternate buyers and are negotiating a purchase and sale agreement under terms we expect to be substantially similar to the previously disclosed terms. We now expect the Company to be in a position to close a sale-leaseback by the end of the second quarter of 2021. In addition, we have extended the maturity date on our credit facility until June 29, 2021.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to reporting net income (loss), a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle (“GAAP”) measure, this news release contains information about Adjusted EBITDA (income from continuing operations adjusted for income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring income and expenses), which is a non-GAAP measure. Share-based compensation includes directors fees paid by means of stock grants versus cash as well as non-cash incentives. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA allows investors to view its performance in a manner similar to the methods used by management and provides additional insight into its operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for the GAAP measure of net income (loss) and, therefore, should not be used in isolation of, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measure. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.
