TORONTO, ONTARIO, July 29, 2019

- Waste Connections, Inc. (TSX/NYSE: WCN) (“Waste Connections” or the “Company”) today announced its results for the second quarter of 2019.

 

“Solid waste pricing growth of over 5%, along with a sequential 200 basis points increase in solid waste volumes, drove underlying solid waste collection, transfer and disposal margin expansion of approximately 70 basis points in the quarter.  This helped offset a portion of the impact from lower than expected contributions from higher margin, commodity-related activities, primarily recycling and renewable fuels, and the dilutive margin impact of acquisitions completed since the prior year period. Our team delivered on the commitments within their control, but the ongoing erosion in recycled commodity values and a precipitous drop in renewable fuel credits impacted overall results,” said Worthing F. Jackman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In spite of these commodity-related headwinds, we have already generated adjusted free cash flow* of more than $500 million, putting us on track to meet our original expectation for underlying adjusted free cash flow* for the full year.”

 

Mr. Jackman added, “As anticipated, we have already completed an outsized year of acquisition activity with almost half of the year still ahead of us, as we have closed approximately $160 million in total annualized revenue.  We are particularly pleased with the approximate 65% average reduction in safety-related incidents in the three largest acquisitions completed over the last several months, and we look forward to continued improvement, as we are accelerating the timing to automate the residential fleet in our largest acquired location. In addition, new contract awards are trending above average. These wins provide foundations for further growth next year but require incremental capex in the current year, which, along with the accelerated fleet conversion referenced above, totals approximately $35 million, and will impact reported adjusted free cash flow*. The strength of our financial profile and free cash flow generation keeps us well-positioned for additional acquisitions and organic growth opportunities, while maintaining the flexibility to increase the return of capital to shareholders.”
