Claystone Waste Ltd. releases 2020 Financial Results

BEAVER COUNTY, Alberta, March 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Claystone Waste Ltd. (Claystone Waste) has released financial results detailing the 2020 fiscal performance of Claystone Waste and its predecessor organization, Beaver Municipal Solutions. On September 1st, 2020, Beaver Municipal Solutions was transitioned from a regional services commission and Claystone Waste was incorporated as a municipally controlled corporation.

“We entered 2020 with a plan to establish a new municipally controlled corporation that would enable our waste management operations to grow,” said Pierre Breau, Claystone Waste CEO. “The transition to Claystone Waste included substantial time and effort, and our operations were additionally challenged by the pandemic in 2020. Despite these challenges, both Beaver Municipal Solutions and Claystone Waste had a strong 2020.”

"Claystone Waste is in a strong financial position and poised for growth. Looking forward in 2021, we will continue to meet industry needs through a focus on being a western Canadian leader in waste management with world-class environmental, operational and safety standards.”

Highlights of the financial results are as follows:

  • 2020 was a profitable year for Claystone Waste with $8.9 million in net income.  Revenues declined slightly due primarily to downward pressures on pricing and lower contaminated soil volumes. These declines were partially offset by increases in construction and demolition waste and hydrovac waste which showed significant growth in 2020.
  • Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, revenues reached $27.8 million in 2020.
  • As a municipally controlled corporation, Claystone Waste provides residents and businesses of its shareholder municipalities with subsidized waste pick-up and disposal services. The subsidy for collection of waste for shareholder communities continued in 2020 with $0.5 million in revenue and $1.2 million in expenses.
  • Claystone Waste continues to hold no bank debt.
  • Net equity increased 14% from $49 million in 2019 to $56 million in 2020.
  • Claystone Waste released a dividend of $2 million to its shareholding municipalities in 2020. On March 1st, 2021, Claystone increased the 2021 divided by 50% to $3 million based on the overall financial strength and growth in the organization.
