Houston – Oct. 23, 2019 – Waste Management, Inc. (NYSE: WM) today announced financial results for its quarter ended September 30, 2019. Revenues for the third quarter of 2019 were $3.97 billion compared with $3.82 billion for the same 2018 period. Net income for the quarter was $495 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, compared with $499 million, also $1.16 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018.

(a) On an adjusted basis net income was $502 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019, compared with $496 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018.(b)

 

The Company’s adjusted third quarter 2019 results exclude a $0.03 per diluted share negative impact from costs incurred in connection with the pending acquisition of Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. and our related reduction of common stock repurchases from planned levels.

 

“In the third quarter we continued to see our collection and disposal lines of business deliver strong revenue and earnings growth, particularly in the segments of our business that reflect the resilience of the consumer,” said Jim Fish, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waste Management. “This strong operational performance led to growth in cash from operations of almost 9%.

 

“Another accomplishment in the quarter that we are particularly proud of is our recognition as sector leader on the 2019 North America and World Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for the second year in a row,” Fish continued. “This distinction is a reflection of our leadership in sustainability and recognizes the continued strides we are making in this area.”
