José Manuel Daes, Chief Executive Officer of Tecnoglass, commented, “2020 was a milestone year for Tecnoglass. Our exceptional results reflect the resilience and dedication of our team as we capitalized on strong residential macro tailwinds and recovering commercial end market conditions to post our second straight quarter of growth in the U.S. Additionally, we delivered on our goal to produce strong returns on our previously implemented automation and capacity investments, contributing to record full year gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA levels, both on a dollar basis and as a percentage of sales. Just as important, our success is translating into a step-change in cash generation, with our operating cash flow representing over 70% of Adjusted EBITDA in 2020. We were thrilled to exit the year with a much stronger and leaner company, underpinned by a significantly improved capital position to further extend our leadership in the architectural glass industry. We will continue to leverage Tecnoglass’ structural competitive advantages to maintain industry leading margins while capturing additional market share in the U.S. We are well situated to achieve another year of stellar financial performance and returns for our shareholders in 2021.”

Christian Daes, Chief Operating Officer of Tecnoglass, added, “Fourth quarter results were encouraging and marked a return to growth in total revenues to close out an extraordinary year. Single-family residential revenues expanded more than 50% year-over-year in the quarter, and represented nearly 20% of our revenues for the full year 2020. Overall quoting and bidding activity continued to strengthen since mid-year 2020, resulting in defensible backlog position of $545 million. Our strong performance in 2020 was augmented by winning new customers, entering new markets and maintaining our commitment to innovation through the introduction of new best-in-class products, particularly in residential. As we move into 2021, we remain focused on expanding our addressable market in single-family housing in the U.S. Accomplishments to date reflect our dedication to excellence and we are excited to drive further improvement across our business in the coming quarters.”
