/EIN News/ --

This release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures described as “Adjusted EBITDA,” “Adjusted income from continuing operations,” and “Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share.”  These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of underlying operational results and trends as well as the Company’s operational performance. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to certain GAAP financial measures. We round amounts in these schedules to millions and calculate all percentages and per-share data from the underlying whole-dollar amounts. As a result, certain amounts may not foot, crossfoot, or recalculate based on reported numbers due to rounding.

Third Quarter Performance

For the third quarter of fiscal 2016, revenues of approximately $1.3 billion increased 3.8% and organic revenue increased 2.2%, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2015. This was due primarily to organic growth within the Company's Janitorial segment driven by an increase in scope of work with existing accounts, including continued Work Order (tag) sales growth and new business.  Revenues also benefited from growth within the ABES (Technical Services) business.   

On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations was $32.9 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $1.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share last year.  The increase in income from continuing operations versus last year primarily reflects a benefit from taxes, and a lower self-insurance adjustment.  Also benefiting the quarter were higher margin revenue within the Janitorial segment and higher revenue contribution from the ABES business, the Company's 2020 Vision savings initiatives, and one less working day during the quarter.

Adjusted income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2016 was $30.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $24.2 million, or $0.42 per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2015.  The increase versus last year is attributable to the aforementioned factors, but excludes certain items impacting comparability.  A full description of items impacting comparability can be found in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table.

Total net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $31.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $61.1 million compared to $49.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015 due to the aforementioned factors that impacted adjusted income from continuing operations. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 4.7% versus 3.9% last year.

Scott Salmirs, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABM Industries, commented, "The results from the third quarter demonstrate how we continue to build upon the strong momentum we established during the first half of fiscal 2016.  Our ability to deliver results consistently while executing our 2020 Vision transformation, underscores the quality of our organization."

Mr. Salmirs continued, "As we begin to structure ourselves by industry group, we look forward to increasing our visibility by end market, and account, which will ultimately enable us to drive the margin improvement we outlined as part of our 2020 Vision.  We remain excited about our trajectory and the progress we are making thus far during Phase II."

Operating Results

For the third quarter of fiscal 2016, revenues increased by $47.0 million, or 3.8%, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2015. This increase in revenues was attributable to organic growth stemming from tag sales and expansion of new and existing accounts within the Janitorial and Facility Services segments, increased scope of work within Other (Air Serv) operations, and higher revenues from the ABES business.  In addition, acquisitions provided $19.3 million of incremental revenues during the quarter related to Westway in the United Kingdom, which is reflected in the Building & Energy Solutions segment.  The Parking segment also contributed to the Company's growth for the quarter.

Operating profit for the quarter was $18.5 million compared to operating loss of $7.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. The increase versus last year is primarily attributable to a lower self-insurance adjustment, in addition to higher margin revenue within the Janitorial segment, and higher revenue contribution from the ABES business.  Operating profit also benefited from savings from the Company's 2020 Vision initiatives, and one less working day.

Liquidity & Capital Structure

The Company ended the quarter with total debt, including standby letters of credit, of $357.0 million. Total debt to proforma adjusted EBITDA was approximately 1.8x.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 0.3 million shares of common stock for $9.7 million. As of July 31, 2016, the Company had $157.3 million of remaining buyback availability under the $200.0 million share repurchase program. 

In addition, the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.165 per common share for a total distribution of $9.2 million.

Declaration of Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.165 per common share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 payable on November 7, 2016 to shareholders of record on October 6, 2016. This will be the Company's 202nd consecutive quarterly cash dividend.

Fiscal 2016 Guidance

The Company now expects GAAP income from continuing operations of $1.30 to $1.35 per diluted share for fiscal year 2016, or adjusted income from continuing operations of $1.70 to $1.75 per diluted share.  This increased guidance is due to an increased benefit of timing associated with investments in people, processes and systems that have not yet occurred, the recognition of certain discrete tax items, and higher-than-expected 2020 Vision savings.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement ABM’s consolidated financial information, the Company has presented income from continuing operations as adjusted for items impacting comparability, for the third quarter of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of the underlying operational results and trends as well as ABM’s marketplace performance. In addition, the Company has presented earnings before income from discontinued operations, net of income tax benefit, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding items impacting comparability (adjusted EBITDA) for the third quarter of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. Adjusted EBITDA is among the indicators management uses as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. (See accompanying financial tables for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to certain GAAP financial measures.)
