TORONTO, ONTARIO, October 25, 2017

- Waste Connections, Inc. (TSX/NYSE: WCN) (“Waste Connections” or the “Company”) today announced its results for the third quarter of 2017. Revenue in the third quarter totaled $1.206 billion, up from $1.085 billion in the year ago period. Operating income was $218.8 million, which included $7.2 million in charges primarily related to costs for transactions completed in the period and certain costs associated with the Progressive Waste acquisition, including share-based compensation costs associated with share-based awards assumed in that acquisition. This compares to operating income of $158.7 million in the third quarter of 2016, which included $20.3 million of items primarily related to the Progressive Waste acquisition completed on June 1, 2016.

 

Net income attributable to Waste Connections in the third quarter was $123.2 million, or $0.47 per share on a diluted basis of 264.3 million shares. In the year ago period, the Company reported net income attributable to Waste Connections of $88.6 million, or $0.34 per share on a diluted basis of 263.7 million shares. Shares and per share numbers reflect a three-for-two share split completed in June 2017.

 

Adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections* in the third quarter was $158.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, versus $126.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA* in the third quarter was $393.4 million, as compared to adjusted EBITDA* of $342.3 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections, adjusted net income attributable to Waste Connections per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow, all non-GAAP measures, primarily exclude the impact of acquisition-related items, as shown in the detailed reconciliation in the attached schedules.

 

“Continued strength across all lines of business enabled us to once again exceed our outlook for the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA* as a percent of revenue in the quarter expanded 100 basis points year-over-year, as expected, in spite of the impact from two hurricanes, which is especially noteworthy in light of the dilutive margin acquisitions completed since the year-ago period. More importantly, adjusted free cash flow remains notably strong at $614.0 million year-to-date, or 17.7% of revenue and 55.8% of adjusted EBITDA*,” said Ronald J. Mittelstaedt, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  “We remain on track to meet or exceed the increased expectations for the full year we communicated in July despite the precipitous decline in recycled fiber values that began in September.”

 

Mr. Mittelstaedt added, “As anticipated last quarter, our strong operating performance, free cash flow growth and balance sheet strength provided for another double-digit percentage increase in the quarterly cash dividend. We remain well positioned to fund expected above average acquisition activity in the near term while continuing to increase our return of capital to shareholders.”
