VAUGHAN, ON, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - GFL Environmental Inc. /zigman2/quotes/214908404/composite GFL -1.72% /zigman2/quotes/214908300/delayed CA:GFL -0.48% ("GFL", "we", "our" or the "Company") today announced its results for the second quarter of 2022.

"Our exceptional start to the year continued into the second quarter, thanks to the hard work and commitment of our over 19,000 employees," said Patrick Dovigi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GFL. "Solid Waste pricing of 7.3% was significantly above our original plan and a testament to our ability to respond to changing market conditions in real time. The strength of this pricing, together with continued positive trends in volume and contribution from M&A drove nearly 30% revenue growth in our Solid Waste segment, a result that was ahead of our expectations. The outperformance that we saw in our Environmental Services segment in the beginning of the year continued to accelerate in the second quarter, resulting in over 20% organic revenue growth and validating our rationale for bringing together the components of this segment late last year. Adjusted EBITDA grew by $115.5 million or 34.2% in the second quarter. We achieved these extraordinary results despite the current inflationary environment that has been more severe and persisted longer than expected, as well as the continuing impact of tight labour markets and supply chain constraints. Although current year margins will be impacted by labour shortages and the rapid rate of cost escalation, we believe that our disciplined pricing initiatives, together with the delayed impact of recent CPI pricing adjustments, will set up a highly favourable launch off point for 2023 and provide additional scope for margin expansion as inflationary pressures, labour markets and supply chain constraints begin to moderate."

Mr. Dovigi added, "We remain focused on executing on our strategy to create long-term value for all stakeholders. We have completed 28 acquisitions year-to-date, the majority of which were smaller tuck-in acquisitions, which have meaningfully densified our Solid Waste footprint within the markets we serve. Our outsized M&A activity during the first part of this year is expected to contribute annualized revenue of approximately $360.0 million and puts us on track to exceed the upside opportunity from M&A that we identified at the beginning of the year. We also continued to make progress on RNG projects at the five landfills, where we have agreements in place, with an additional seven sites under active negotiation and nine other projects in the request for proposal stage."

Mr. Dovigi concluded, "Our strong performance for the first half of the year, coupled with our expectation for the balance of the year, the resilience of our business model and the effectiveness of our growth strategies, are leading us to increase our 2022 full year guidance for the second time this year. We are increasing our guidance for revenue by $375 million, as well as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow, despite the current inflationary environment and rising interest rates. We continue to see upside opportunities ahead of us as result of our robust M&A pipeline and the contribution from any incremental M&A completed in the second half of the year would be additive to our updated guidance."

  • Adjusted Free Cash Flow [2] was $220.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $279.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

GFL also provided its updated guidance for 2022 assuming a CAD/US exchange rate of 1.28 for the remainder of the year (compared to 1.26 provided in our original guidance on February 9, 2022):

  • Revenue is estimated to be between $6,425 million and $6,475 million (previously between $6,000 million and $6,100 million).

  • Adjusted EBITDA [3] is estimated to be between $1,710 million and $1,730 million (previously between $1,680 million and $1,720 million).

  • Adjusted Free Cash Flow [3] is estimated to be between $650 million and $680 million (previously between $645 million and $675 million).

The 2022 updated guidance includes the expected contribution of acquisitions already completed in 2022, net of divestitures completed to date, but excludes any impact from additional acquisitions not yet completed, refinancing opportunities and any potential redeployment of capital. Implicit in forward-looking information in respect of our expectations for 2022 are certain current assumptions, including, among others, no changes to the current economic environment and that none of the jurisdictions in which GFL operates institute additional COVID-19 emergency measures including shelter-in-place or similar orders. The updated 2022 guidance assumes GFL will continue to execute on its strategy of organically growing our business, leverage our scalable network to attract and retain customers across multiple service lines, realize operational efficiencies, and extract procurement and cost synergies. See "Forward-Looking Information".

There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information. The forward-looking information contained in this release represents our expectations as of the date of this release (or as the date it is otherwise stated to be made), and is subject to change after such date. However, we disclaim any intention or obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking information whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required under applicable U.S. or Canadian securities laws. The purpose of disclosing our financial outlook set out in this release is to provide investors with more information concerning the financial impact of our business initiatives and growth strategies.

This release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. Rather, these non-IFRS measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Our management also uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation.

EBITDA represents, for the applicable period, net income (loss) from continuing operations plus (a) interest and other finance costs, plus (b) depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, landfill assets and intangible assets, less (c) the provision for income taxes, in each case to the extent deducted or added to/from net income (loss) from continuing operations. We present EBITDA to assist readers in understanding the mathematical development of Adjusted EBITDA. Management does not use EBITDA as a financial performance metric.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure used by management and other users of our financial statements including our lenders and investors, to assess the financial performance of our business without regard to financing methods or capital structure. Adjusted EBITDA is also a key metric that management uses prior to execution of any strategic investing or financing opportunity. For example, management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure in determining the value of acquisitions, expansion opportunities and dispositions. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is utilized by financial institutions to measure borrowing capacity. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding and deducting, as applicable from EBITDA, certain expenses, costs, charges or benefits incurred in such period which in management's view are either not indicative of underlying business performance or impact the ability to assess the operating performance of our business, including: (a) (gain) loss on foreign exchange, (b) (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment, (c) mark-to-market (gain) loss on Purchase Contracts, (d) share of net income of investments accounted for using the equity method, (e) share-based payments, (f) impairment, (g) gain on divestiture, (h) transaction costs, and (i) acquisition, rebranding and other integration costs (included in cost of sales related to acquisition activity). We use Adjusted EBITDA to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis reflecting factors and trends affecting our business. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we deducted our share of net income of investments accounted for using the equity method and adjusted for an impairment charge related to assets that were destroyed in a fire during the quarter. As we continue to grow our business, we may be faced with new events or circumstances that are not indicative of our underlying business performance or that impact the ability to assess our operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Management and other users of our financial statements including our lenders and investors use Adjusted EBITDA margin to facilitate a comparison of the operating performance of each of our operating segments on a consistent basis reflecting factors and trends affecting our business.

Acquisition EBITDA represents, for the applicable period, management's estimates of the annual Adjusted EBITDA of an acquired business, based on its most recently available historical financial information at the time of acquisition, as adjusted to give effect to (a) the elimination of expenses related to the prior owners and certain other costs and expenses that are not indicative of the underlying business performance, if any, as if such business had been acquired on the first day of such period ("Acquisition EBITDA Adjustments"), and (b) contract and acquisition annualization for contracts entered into and acquisitions completed by such acquired business prior to our acquisition. Further adjustments are made to such annual Adjusted EBITDA to reflect estimated operating cost savings and synergies, if any, anticipated to be realized upon acquisition and integration of the business into our operations. We use Acquisition EBITDA for the acquired businesses to adjust our Adjusted EBITDA to include a proportional amount of the Acquisition EBITDA of the acquired businesses based upon the respective number of months of operation for such period prior to the date of our acquisition of each such business.

Adjusted Cash Flows from Operating Activities represents cash flows from operating activities adjusted for (a) operating cash flows from discontinued operations, (b) prepayment penalties for early note redemption, (c) transaction costs, (d) acquisition, rebranding and other integration costs, (e) M&A related net working capital investment, (f) tax refund from CARES Act, and (g) cash interest paid on TEUs. Management uses Adjusted Cash Flows from Operating Activities to evaluate and monitor the ongoing financial performance of GFL. Adjusted Cash Flows from Operating Activities is a supplemental measure used by investors as a valuation and liquidity measure in our industry.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow represents Adjusted Cash Flows from Operating Activities adjusted for (a) proceeds from asset divestitures, (b) proceeds on disposal of assets, (c) purchase of property and equipment and intangible assets, and (d) investment in joint ventures and associates. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, proceeds from asset divestitures excluded proceeds received for the divestiture of GFL Infrastructure. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a supplemental measure used by investors as a valuation and liquidity measure in our industry. Management uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow to evaluate and monitor the ongoing financial performance of GFL.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) from continuing operations represents net income (loss) for continuing operations adjusted for (a) amortization of intangible assets, (b) ARO discount rate depreciation adjustment, (c) incremental depreciation of property and equipment due to recapitalization, (d) prepayment penalties for early note redemption, (e) amortization of deferred financing costs, (f) (gain) loss on foreign exchange, (g) mark-to-market (gain) loss on Purchase Contracts, (h) share of net income of investments accounted for using the equity method, (i) impairment, (j) gain on divestiture, (k) transaction costs, (l) acquisition, rebranding and other integration costs, (m) TEU amortization expense, and (n) the tax impact of the forgoing. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we deducted our share of net income of investments accounted for using the equity method and adjusted for an impairment charge related to assets that were destroyed in a fire during the quarter. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations is defined as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) from continuing operations divided by the weighted average shares in the period. We believe that Adjusted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations provides a meaningful comparison of current results to prior periods' results by excluding items that GFL does not believe reflect its fundamental business performance.

Net Leverage is a supplemental measure used by management to evaluate borrowing capacity and capital allocation strategies. Net Leverage is equal to our total long-term debt, as adjusted for fair value, deferred financings and other adjustments and reduced by our cash, divided by Run-Rate EBITDA.

Run-Rate EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA for the applicable period as adjusted to give effect to management's estimates of (a) Acquisition EBITDA Adjustments (as defined above) and (b) the impact of annualization of certain new municipal and disposal contracts and cost savings initiatives, entered into, commenced or implemented, as applicable, in such period, as if such contracts or costs savings initiatives had been entered into, commenced or implemented, as applicable, on the first day of such period. Run-Rate EBITDA has not been adjusted to take into account the impact of the cancellation of contracts and cost increases associated with these contracts. These adjustments reflect monthly allocations of Acquisition EBITDA for the acquired businesses based on straight line proration. As a result, these estimates do not take into account the seasonality of a particular acquired business. While we do not believe the seasonality of any one acquired business is material when aggregated with other acquired businesses, the estimates may result in a higher or lower adjustment to our Run-Rate EBITDA than would have resulted had we adjusted for the actual results of each of the acquired businesses for the period prior to our acquisition. We primarily use Run-Rate EBITDA to show how GFL would have performed if each of the interim acquisitions had been consummated at the start of the period as well as to show the impact of the annualization of certain new municipal and disposal contracts and cost savings initiatives. We also believe that Run-Rate EBITDA is useful to investors and creditors to monitor and evaluate our borrowing capacity and compliance with certain of our debt covenants. Run-Rate EBITDA as presented herein is calculated in accordance with the terms of our revolving credit agreement.

(2) Subsequent to the original issuance of the June 30, 2021 unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements, GFL determined the mark-to-market loss on Purchase Contracts should not be treated as a temporary difference for deferred income tax purposes. As a result, to correct this immaterial error, income tax recovery increased by $37.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and decreased by $18.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
