CASELLA WASTE SYSTEMS, INC. ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL YEAR 2013 RESULTS; PROVIDES FISCAL YEAR 2014 GUIDANCE

RUTLAND, VERMONT (June 26, 2013) — Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CWST), a regional solid waste, recycling and resource management services company, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013, and gave guidance for its fiscal year 2014.

Highlights for the quarter included:

 

   

Revenue growth of 2.2 percent over the same quarter last year.

 

   

Overall solid waste pricing growth of 0.7 percent was primarily driven by collection pricing growth of 1.5 percent as a percentage of collection revenues.

 

   

Adjusted EBITDA* was $19.4 million for the quarter.

For the quarter ended April 30, 2013, revenues were $108.7 million, up $2.3 million, or 2.2 percent, from the same quarter last year, with revenue growth mainly driven by acquisition activity, higher recycling volumes, and higher solid waste collection pricing.

The company’s net loss attributable to common stockholders was ($13.4) million, or ($0.34) per share for the quarter, compared to net loss of ($49.1) million, or ($1.83) per share for the same quarter last year.

The current quarter includes a $0.2 million severance and reorganization charge related to the sale of the Maine Energy Recovery Company LP (“Maine Energy”) facility and other realignment activities, $0.4 million of expenses related to the divestiture of Maine Energy and the acquisition of Blow Brothers Inc. (“BBI”), a $0.4 million reversal of a prior estimated loss on the divestiture of Maine Energy, $0.7 million of legal expenses related to the settlement of the New York State income tax matter, and a $3.7 million loss from discontinued operations related to the planned disposal of the company’s only construction and demolition processing business. By comparison, the quarter ended April 30, 2012 included a $40.7 million non-cash asset impairment charge associated with the sale of Maine Energy, a $0.3 million loss on the extinguishment of debt, and a $0.1 million loss from discontinued operations.

Excluding the unusual charges identified in the prior paragraph from each period and assuming no tax impact, the company’s net loss attributable to common shareholders was ($8.7) million, or ($0.22) per common share for the quarter, compared to net loss of ($7.9) million, or ($0.30) per share for the same quarter last year.

Operating income was $2.1 million for the quarter, up from an operating loss of ($37.7) million in the same quarter last year. Excluding the unusual charges identified in the second preceding paragraph, Adjusted Operating Income* in the current quarter was $3.1 million, flat to the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $19.4 million for the quarter, down $0.6 million from the same quarter last year.

“In early March, we announced our comprehensive plan to improve the operating performance of the business, and I am happy to report that we are making excellent progress,” said John W. Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste Systems. “At that time we laid out four specific areas of enhanced focus for the coming next year - sourcing incremental landfill volumes; improving collection route profitability; completing the multi-year Eastern region strategy; and placing the right leaders in the right roles.”

“During the first two months of our fourth quarter we continued to experience negative year-over-year results as our enhanced focus on these operational areas had not yet shown results; however, in April our Adjusted EBITDA was up $1.1 million year-over-year and we are seeing the same positive volumes and operating trends continue into May and early June,” Casella said. “We believe that this improvement is directly attributable to our focused management efforts over the last three months, and we expect to further these efforts over the remainder of our fiscal year 2014.”
