For the third quarter of fiscal 2021, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment increased by $68.3 million, or 15.0%, from the 2020 period. The increase was primarily driven by a $52.8 million increase in commercial landscape services underpinned by a combination of contract and ancillary services growth, as well as an $18.0 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased by $7.3 million to $90.6 million from $83.3 million in the 2020 period. The increase in Segment Adjusted EBITDA was principally driven by the increase in Maintenance Services revenues discussed above. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreased 100 basis points, to 17.3%, in the three months ended June 30, 2021, from 18.3% in the 2020 period, primarily due to higher material costs and increased labor costs inclusive of the Juneteenth company holiday introduced in June 2021.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2021, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment increased by $189.7 million, or 14.7%, from the 2020 period. Revenues from snow removal services were $285.2 million, an increase of $122.1 million over the 2020 period, and revenues from landscape services were $1,193.2 million, an increase of $67.6 million over the 2020 period. The increase in snow removal services was primarily attributable to the increased frequency of snowfall events and the higher relative snowfall in the nine months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the prior year period. The increase in landscape services revenues was driven by a $53.2 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses and a $16.8 million increase in commercial landscape services underpinned by a combination of contract and ancillary services growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 increased $40.8 million, to $212.5 million, compared to $171.7 million in the 2020 period. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased 110 basis points, to 14.4%, in the nine months ended June 30, 2021, from 13.3% in the 2020 period. The increases in Segment Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin were principally driven by the increase in net service revenues described above and a decrease in Selling, general, and administrative expenses due to cost containment actions.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2021, revenue in the Development Services Segment decreased $2.5 million, or 1.6%, compared to the 2020 period. The decrease in Development Services revenues was principally driven by an $11.6 million reduction due to reduced backlog as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with a $5.9 million reduction due to the sale of BrightView Tree Company in September 2020, partially offset by a $14.9 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2021, revenues for the Development Services Segment decreased $47.2 million, or 10.4%, compared to the 2020 period.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 decreased $28.5 million, to $133.4 million, from $161.9 million in the 2020 period. This decrease was due to a reduction in the cash provided by accounts receivable, unbilled and deferred revenue, and accounts payable and other operating liabilities, partially offset by an increase in cash provided by other operating assets.

Free Cash Flow decreased $23.6 million to $96.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 from $119.8 million in the 2020 period. The decrease in Free Cash Flow was due to a decrease in cash provided by operating activities, as described above.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2021, capital expenditures were $44.7 million, compared with $45.9 million in the prior year. The Company also generated proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $7.5 million and $3.8 million during the nine months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Net of the proceeds from the sale of property and equipment, net capital expenditures represented 2.0% and 2.4% of revenue in the nine months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, 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”, “Total Net Financial Debt” and “Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio”. We believe Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio 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, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio 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 Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio 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, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio 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 finance/capital lease obligations.

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

Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio: We define Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio as Total Net Financial Debt divided by the trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio 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.

(c) Represents expenses incurred for IPO related litigation and completed or contemplated subsequent registration statements.

(d) Represents equity-based compensation expense and related taxes recognized for equity incentive plans outstanding.

(e) Represents expenses related to the Company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, principally temporary and incremental salary and related expenses, personal protective equipment and cleaning and supply purchases, and other.

(f) Represents expenses related to changes in estimates and actuarial assumptions associated with the Company’s self-insured liability amounts for workers’ compensation, general liability, auto liability, and employee health care insurance programs, to reflect uncertainties associated with the current environment, including the COVID-19 pandemic.

(g) Represents the tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from Adjusted Net Income and the removal of the applicable discrete tax items, which collectively result in a reduction of income tax. The tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from Adjusted Net Income is computed using the statutory rate related to the jurisdiction that was impacted by the adjustment after taking into account the impact of permanent differences and valuation allowances. Discrete tax items include changes in laws or rates, changes in uncertain tax positions relating to prior years and changes in valuation allowances.

(h) Represents isolated expenses specifically related to the integration of acquired companies such as one-time employee retention costs, employee onboarding and training costs, and fleet and uniform rebranding costs. The Company excludes Business integration costs from the measures disclosed above since such expenses vary in amount due to the number of acquisitions and size of acquired companies as well as factors specific to each acquisition, and as a result lack predictability as to occurrence and/or timing, and create a lack of comparability between periods.

(i) Represents expenses related to distinct initiatives, typically significant enterprise-wide changes. Such expenses are excluded from the measures disclosed above since such expenses vary in amount based on occurrence as well as factors specific to each of the activities, are outside of the normal operations of the business, and create a lack of comparability between periods.
