Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. Refer to the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section for more information. The Company is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of its financial outlook for Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income, its corresponding GAAP measure, because the GAAP measure that is excluded from its non-GAAP financial outlook is difficult to reliably predict or estimate without unreasonable effort due to its dependence on future uncertainties, such as items discussed below. Additionally, information that is currently not available to the Company could have a potentially unpredictable & potentially significant impact on its future GAAP financial results.

BrightView Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BV) (the “Company” or “BrightView”), the leading commercial landscaping services company in the United States, today reported unaudited results for the second quarter ended March 31, 2023.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2023, total revenue decreased 8.6% to $650.4 million driven by a decrease of $77.4 million in organic revenue from snow removal services year-over-year associated with the lower snowfall in the period. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by a $17.1 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses.

For the six months ended March 31, 2023, total revenue increased 0.2% to $1,306.3 million driven by $48.4 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses, or 3.7% of the total percentage increase year-over-year and $11.7 million, or 1.6% Maintenance Land organic growth. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $59.2 million in snow removal services organic revenues year-over-year associated with the lower snowfall in the period.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2023, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment decreased by $55.6 million, or 10.0%, from the 2022 period. The decrease was driven by a decrease of $69.4 million in snow removal services due to lower snowfall, net of $8.0 million from acquired businesses. Snowfall for the period was 50.1% of the weighted-average historical volume (relative to the 10-year historical average as defined by NOAA1 for the Company's footprint during the respective three-month periods). Partially offsetting this was a $13.8 million increase in landscape services revenue consisting of an $8.3 million contribution from acquired businesses and an increase of $5.5 million, or 1.6%, in underlying commercial landscape services underpinned by contract services growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment for the three months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by $11.2 million to $51.7 million from $62.9 million in the 2022 period. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreased 100 basis points, to 10.4%, in the three months ended March 31, 2023, from 11.4% in the 2022 period. The decreases in Segment Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin were driven by the decrease in snow removal services revenues described above, partially offset by an increased contribution from both contract and ancillary services.

For the six months ended March 31, 2023, Maintenance Services net service revenues decreased by $10.5 million, or 1.1%, from the 2022 period. The decrease was driven by a decrease of $43.6 million in snow removal services due to lower snowfall, net of $15.6 million from acquired businesses. Snowfall for the period was 62.0% of the weighted-average historical volume (relative to the 10-year historical average as defined by NOAA1 for the Company's footprint during the respective six-month periods). Partially offsetting this was a $33.1 million increase in landscape services revenue consisting of a $21.4 million contribution from acquired businesses and an increase of $11.7 million, or 1.6%, in underlying commercial landscape services underpinned by contract services growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by $6.0 million to $102.2 million from $108.2 million in the 2022 period. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreased 50 basis points, to 10.4%, in the six months ended March 31, 2023, from 10.9% in the 2022 period. The decreases in Segment Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin were driven by the decrease in snow removal services revenues described above, partially offset by an increased contribution from both contract and ancillary services.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2023, revenue in the Development Services Segment decreased by $4.1 million, or 2.6%, compared to the prior year. The decrease was principally driven by Development Services project volumes of $4.9 million, partially offset by $0.8 million of revenue contributions from acquired businesses.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Development Services Segment for the three months ended March 31, 2023 increased $0.3 million, to $13.1 million, compared to the 2022 period. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased 40 basis points, to 8.4% for the quarter from 8.0% in the prior year. The increases in Segment Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin were primarily driven by the mix of projects relative to the prior year coupled with disciplined management of materials costs.

For the six months ended March 31, 2023, revenue in the Development Services Segment increased $15.5 million, or 4.9%, compared to the 2022 period. The increase was principally driven by an $11.4 million revenue contribution from acquired businesses combined with an increase of $4.1 million due to additional project volumes.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Development Services Segment for the six months ended March 31, 2023 increased $2.3 million, to $29.6 million in the prior year. Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased 30 basis points, to 9.0% for the period from 8.7% in the 2022 period. Segment Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased principally due to the increase in revenues described above.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended March 31, 2023 increased $12.7 million, to $55.0 million, from $42.3 million in the 2022 period. This increase was due to an increase in cash provided by other operating assets and decreases in cash used by accounts payable and other operating liabilities and cash used by accounts receivable. This was partially offset by a decrease in the cash provided by unbilled and deferred revenue.

Free Cash Flow increased $35.2 million to an inflow of $15.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2023 from an outflow of $19.3 million in the prior year. The increase in Free Cash Flow was due to an increase in net cash provided by operating activities, as described above, coupled with a decrease in cash used for capital expenditures, as described below.

For the six months ended March 31, 2023, capital expenditures were $42.7 million, compared with $64.2 million in the prior year. The Company also generated proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $3.6 million and $2.6 million during the six months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Net of the proceeds from the sale of property and equipment, net capital expenditures represented 3.0% of revenue in the six months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of 170 bps compared to 4.7% for the six months ended March 31, 2022.

The words such as “outlook,” “guidance,” “projects,” “continues,” “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” or “anticipates,” or the negative version of these words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. By their nature, forward-looking statements: speak only as of the date they are made; are not statements of historical fact or guarantees of future performance; and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, or changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict or quantify. Our expectations, beliefs, and projections are expressed in good faith and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs and projections will result or be achieved and actual results may vary materially from what is expressed in or indicated by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected include, but are not limited to: general business economic and financial conditions, including recessionary conditions; higher operational and supply costs and expenses due to inflation, and our inability to pass higher costs and expenses onto our customers through price increases; competitive industry pressures; the failure to retain current customers, renew existing customer contracts and obtain new customer contracts; the failure to enter into profitable contracts, or maintaining customer contracts that are unprofitable; a determination by customers to reduce their outsourcing or use of preferred vendors; the dispersed nature of our operating structure; our ability to implement our business strategies and achieve our growth objectives; the possibility that the anticipated benefits from our business acquisitions will not be realized in full or at all or may take longer to realize than expected; the possibility that costs or difficulties related to the integration of acquired businesses’ operations will be greater than expected and the possibility that integration efforts will disrupt our business and strain management time and resources; the seasonal nature of our landscape maintenance services; our dependence on weather conditions and the impact of severe weather and climate change on our business; increases in prices for raw materials, labor and fuel caused by rising inflation or otherwise; disruptions in our supply chain and changes in our ability to source adequate supplies and materials in a timely manner; the duration and extent of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its resurgence, and the impact of federal, state and local governmental actions and customer behavior in response to the pandemic, including possible additional or reinstated restrictions as a result of a resurgence of the pandemic; any failure to accurately estimate the overall risk, requirements, or costs when we bid on or negotiate contracts that are ultimately awarded to us; the conditions and periodic fluctuations of real estate markets, including residential and commercial construction; our ability to retain or hire our executive management and other key personnel; our ability to attract and retain field and hourly employees, trained workers and third-party contractors and re-employ seasonal workers; any failure to properly verify employment eligibility of our employees; subcontractors taking actions that harm our business; our recognition of future impairment charges; laws and governmental regulations, including those relating to employees, wage and hour, immigration, human health and safety and transportation; environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, including regulatory costs, claims and litigation related to the use of chemicals and pesticides by employees and related third-party claims; our ability to pursue and achieve our environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) focus area goals; unexpected delays, difficulties, and expenses encountered or incurred in pursuing our ESG goals and costs and requirements imposed as a result of maintaining the requirement of being a public company; the distraction and impact caused by litigation, of adverse litigation judgments and settlements resulting from legal proceedings; increase in on-job accidents involving employees; any failure, inadequacy, interruption, security failure or breach of our information technology systems; our ability to adequately protect our intellectual property; restrictions imposed by our debt agreements that limit our flexibility in operating our business; our ability to generate sufficient cash flow to satisfy our significant debt service obligations; our ability to obtain additional financing to fund future working capital, capital expenditures, investments or acquisitions, or other general corporate requirements; increases in interest rates governing our variable rate indebtedness increasing the cost of servicing our substantial indebtedness including changes related to LIBOR reform; any future sales, or the perception of future sales, by us or our affiliates, which could cause the market price for our common stock to decline; the ability of KKR BrightView Aggregator L.P., which holds approximately 54% of our shares as of March 31, 2023, to exert significant influence over us; occurrence of natural disasters, terrorist attacks, geopolitical events, hostilities or other external events; changes in generally accepted accounting principles in the United States; and costs and requirements imposed as a result of maintaining compliance with the requirement of being a public company. Additional factors that could cause our results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found under “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 as such factors may be updated from time to time in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this release and in our filings with the SEC. Any forward-looking statement made in this press release speaks only as of the date on which it was made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law.

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 (Loss) Income”, “Adjusted (Loss) 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 (Loss) Income, Adjusted (Loss) Earnings per Share, Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, Total Net Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio assist investors 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 (Loss) Income, Adjusted (Loss) 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 (Loss) Income, Adjusted (Loss) 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 (Loss) Income, Adjusted (Loss) 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 (loss) income 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 (Loss) Income: We define Adjusted Net (Loss) Income as net (loss) income 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 (Loss) Earnings per Share: We define Adjusted (Loss) Earnings per Share as Adjusted Net (Loss) 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 (Loss) Income, Adjusted (Loss) 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 (loss) income or the ratio of net (loss) income 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.

(d)

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 (benefit). 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.

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.

(f)

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.
