First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Highlights

  • Total Revenues for the quarter were $570.7 million, an 8.5% increase versus the prior year, with 6.7% higher Maintenance Services Segment revenues and 13.7% higher Development Services Segment revenues;
  • Net Loss of $12.6 million, or $(0.12) per share, and a net loss margin of 2.2%, compared to Net Loss of $8.8 million, or $(0.09) per share, and a net loss margin of 1.7%, in the prior year;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $51.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 9.1%, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $50.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 9.5% in the prior year;

“We are pleased with our start to fiscal 2020. We saw another quarter of solid revenue growth in both operating segments and overall Adjusted EBITDA growth for the Enterprise. Our net new sales, which will benefit the upcoming ‘green’ maintenance season, are the highest ever generated; our development project bookings are ahead of last year’s pace and our strong-on-strong acquisition strategy already has to date added four companies with enough expected revenue impact to reach our full year fiscal 2020 targets,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President and Chief Executive Officer. “We also continue to make our planned investments in people and technology to support our sales and account manager teams, enhancing our customer relationships and driving both revenue growth and cash generation, that will drive continued value creation for our stockholders.”

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Earnings per Share are non-GAAP measures. Refer to the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” sections for more information.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, total revenue increased 8.5% to $570.7 million due to increases in both Maintenance Services Segment and Development Services Segment revenues. Net Loss was $12.6 million compared to $8.8 million in the 2018 period, attributable to lower income from operations, partially offset by an increase in other income and an increase in the income tax benefit. Total Adjusted EBITDA increased 3.2% driven by an increase in Development Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA, coupled with lower corporate expenses, partially offset by a decrease in Maintenance Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA, as discussed further below.

For the first quarter fiscal 2020, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment increased 6.7% to $418.9 million. Acquisitions added 5.9% and snow removal services added 1.5% but these increases were partially offset by a 0.7% negative revenue contribution from commercial landscaping which included lower revenue due to the wind down of Managed Exits and the timing of new contracts.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment in the quarter decreased 2.1% to $47.7 million, with the Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreasing 100 basis points versus the prior year. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA Margin was principally due to an increase in employee and technology related costs, primarily driven by the timing of expenses related to incentive compensation and the increased investment in our sales and operational leadership teams.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Development Services Segment increased 12.4% to $19.1 million in the quarter, positively affected by the increase in net revenue described above. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin was relatively flat compared with the prior year period.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 was $7.3 million, compared to $6.4 million for the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in cash provided by unbilled and deferred revenue coupled with a decrease in cash used by accounts payable and other operating liabilities, mostly offset by a decrease in cash provided by accounts receivable and an increase in cash used by other operating assets.

Free Cash Flow for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 was $(6.2) million, an increase of $2.9 million versus the prior year. The increase in Free Cash Flow was driven principally by a decline in capital expenditures of $2.8 million.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, capital expenditures were $14.5 million, compared with $17.3 million in the prior year. The Company also generated proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $1.0 million and $1.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively. Net of the proceeds from the sale of property and equipment in the quarter, net capital expenditures represented 2.4% and 2.9% of revenue in the first quarter fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and aid understanding of the Company’s business performance, the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, namely “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Adjusted EBITDA Margin”, “Adjusted Net Income” “Adjusted Earnings per Share”, “Free Cash Flow”, Total Financial Debt” and “Total Net Financial Debt”. We believe Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt assist investors and in comparing our results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in highlighting trends in our operating performance, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which we operate and capital investments. Management regularly uses these measures as tools in evaluating our operating performance, financial performance and liquidity. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt to supplement comparable GAAP measures in the evaluation of the effectiveness of our business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, to establish discretionary annual incentive compensation and to compare our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. In addition, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt are frequently used by investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of issuers, many of which also present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt when reporting their results in an effort to facilitate an understanding of their operating and financial results and liquidity. Management supplements GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone.

Adjusted EBITDA: We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash, non-recurring and other adjustment items.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin: We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA, defined above, divided by Net Service Revenues.

Adjusted Net Income: We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) including interest and depreciation, and excluding other items used to calculate Adjusted EBITDA and further adjusted for the tax effect of these exclusions and the removal of the discrete tax items.

Adjusted Earnings per Share: We define Adjusted Earnings per Share as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.

Free Cash Flow: We define Free Cash Flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from the sale of property and equipment.

Total Financial Debt: We define Total Financial Debt as total long-term debt, net of original issue discount, and capital lease obligations.

Total Net Financial Debt: We define Total Net Financial Debt as Total Financial Debt minus total cash and cash equivalents.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or the ratio of net income (loss) to net revenue as a measure of financial performance, cash flows provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these measures are not intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for management’s discretionary use as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. The presentations of these measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company.
