Despite present market pressure, our Canadian Janitorial business segment showed continued positive sequential improvement in Adjusted EBITDA margin1 reporting 6.4% in the third quarter compared to 5.5% in Q2 2017. Our USA Janitorial business segment recorded Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 7.8% which, in addition to being in-line with our long term target for this business, represents meaningful quarterly improvement on both a sequential and year-over-year basis. The integration process in our Technical Services segment is nearing completion, and while margins remain below our long-term expectations we are satisfied with the Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 3.2% before integration costs that was recorded in the quarter and of the progress made to date under the integration plan. Our Complementary Services segment had another strong quarter, generating Adjusted EBITDA1 of $3.0 million, or growth of 67% over Q3 2016,” stated Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI.  

“To strengthen our Technical Services segment, we bought a business in South West Ontario on July 1st, with approximately $10M of revenue. This business will be accretive to earnings in 2017. Overall, our business performed very well during Q3 2017 and our outlook for the remainder of the year remains positive, we are working diligently on managing costs and improving our Technical Services segment profitability. Our leverage ratios remain within our comfort zone and we are well positioned to continue to execute on our business plan and to capitalize on strategic growth opportunities as they arise,” concluded Mr. Bigras.
