TORONTO, ONTARIO, February 21, 2017

- Waste Connections, Inc. (TSX/NYSE: WCN) (“Waste Connections” or the “Company”) today announced its results for the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue in the fourth quarter, which included $497.9 million from the Progressive Waste acquisition completed on June 1, 2016, totaled $1.049 billion, up from $531.9 million in the year ago period. Operating income, which included $23.0 million of impairments and other items primarily related to the expected divestiture of certain assets acquired in the Progressive Waste acquisition and $16.0 million of items also related to that transaction, was $139.2 million compared to $101.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, which included acquisition-related transaction costs of $2.9 million associated with the acquisition of Rock River Environmental Services.

 

Net income attributable to Waste Connections in the fourth quarter was $85.6 million, or $0.49 per share on a diluted basis of 175.9 million shares. In the year ago period, the Company reported net income attributable to Waste Connections of $52.1 million, or $0.42 per share on a diluted basis of 123.1 million shares.

 

Adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections* in the fourth quarter was $120.3 million, or $0.68 per share, versus $59.8 million, or $0.49 per share, in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA* in the fourth quarter was $325.4 million, as compared to adjusted EBITDA* of $175.6 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections, adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA, all non-GAAP measures, primarily exclude the impact of acquisition-related items and impairments and other operating items, as reflected in the detailed reconciliation in the attached tables.

 

“Our acquisition of Progressive Waste made 2016 a transformational year for Waste Connections. More importantly, our culture and operating playbook enabled us to drive significant improvements in safety, quality of revenue and operating performance within these operations, all pacing 12 to 18 months ahead of our initial expectations. This was evident in the fourth quarter as our results once again exceeded expectations. This underlying strength, together with the previously announced acquisition of Groot Industries and continuing improvements in recycled commodity values and E&P waste activity, should position us well for 2017,” said Ronald J. Mittelstaedt, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
