NORWELL, Mass. — May 1, 2019 —

Clean Harbors, Inc. (“Clean Harbors”) (NYSE: CLH), the leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services throughout North America, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.


“We opened 2019 with a strong first-quarter performance,” said Alan S. McKim, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We delivered 4% top-line growth and a corresponding 15% increase in Adjusted EBITDA. As a result, our Adjusted EBITDA margin grew by 120 basis points from the same period in 2018. The quarter’s profitable growth was driven by our Environmental Services segment, which more than offset a small year-over-year decline in our Safety-Kleen segment.”


First-quarter revenues increased to $780.8 million from $749.8 million in the same period of 2018. Income from operations more than doubled to $23.7 million from $11.0 million in the year-earlier quarter.


Net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share. This compared with a net loss for the same period in 2018 of $12.6 million, or $0.22 per share.  Adjusted for certain items in both periods, adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $5.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss of $6.6 million, or $0.12 per share, in the same period in 2018. (See reconciliation table below)


Adjusted EBITDA (see description below) in the first quarter of 2019 increased 15% to $101.7 million from $88.3 million in the same period of 2018.


“Environmental Services generated top-line growth of 8%. This reflected the Veolia Industrial acquisition in early 2018 as well as organic growth, as we benefitted from higher pricing and a better mix of waste streams,” McKim said.  “Adjusted EBITDA in the segment grew 46%, reflecting pricing initiatives, cost reductions, productivity improvements and some one-time gains. The segment’s results are even more impressive given that our Deer Park incineration facility was closed for nearly two weeks due to a major fire at the neighboring chemical storage facility.  As a result of that fire, as well as a high number of planned turnaround days, our incineration utilization was 77% in Q1.  However, similar to recent quarters, we continued to improve our mix with many more high-value waste streams in our network, which drove our average incineration price per pound up by 14% from a year ago.
