Posted on: May 11, 2023
  • Q1 2023 revenue of $591 million, an increase of $96 million, or 19%, over Q1 2022.
  • Q1 2023 Adjusted EBITDA* of $33 million, a decrease of $3 million, or 8%, compared to Q1 2022.
  • Q1 2023 net income of $4 million or $0.15 per share compared with $7 million or $0.30 per share for the first quarter of 2022.

LASALLE, QC, May 11, 2023 /CNW/ – GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc. (“GDI” or the “Company“) (TSX: GDI) is pleased to announce its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

For the first quarter of 2023:

  • Revenue reached $591 million, an increase of $96 million, or 19%, over the first quarter of 2022, comprised of 14% Organic Growth, 2% growth from acquisitions and 3% growth from the appreciation of the U.S. dollar relative to the Canadian dollar.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* amounted to $33 million, a decrease of $3 million, or 8%, compared to the first quarter of 2022.
  • Net income was $4 million or $0.15 per share compared to $7 million or $0.30 per share in Q1 2022. The decrease of net income in the first quarter of 2023 compared to 2022 is mainly attributable to lower operating income of $6 million, partially offset by lower net finance expense of $2 million and lower income tax expense of $1 million.

For the first quarters of 2023 and 2022, the business segments performed as follows:

Comparative results have been recast to reflect a change in our reporting segments, as former Complementary Services and Corporate and eliminations segments are now grouped under Corporate and Other. 

(3)

Adjusted EBITDA definition now exclude the strategic information technology projects configuration and customization costs. This change has no impact on the three-month period ended March 31, 2022. 


GDI’s Business Services Canada segment had a good quarter, recording $141 million in revenue representing an organic revenue decline of 1%, while delivering $14 million in Adjusted EBITDA*. GDI’s Business Services USA segment also performed well in Q1 2023, recording revenue of $177 million, representing an organic revenue decline of 2%, and Adjusted EBITDA* of $12 million. The organic revenue decline is attributable to a decrease in COVID-19 related extra services as compared to Q1 2022, which also led to lower Adjusted EBITDA* margin in both Business Services segments.

The Technical Services segment had a strong quarter, recording revenues of $252 million or growth of 47% over Q1 2022, including organic revenue growth of 43%. The segment recorded Adjusted EBITDA* of $11 million compared to $6 million in Q1 2022, representing an Adjusted EBITDA margin* of 4%. Revenue growth for the business is attributable to a strong increase in project revenues and higher service revenues compared to previous year.

Finally, GDI’s Corporate and Other segment recorded revenue of $21 million compared to revenue of $18 million in Q1 2022, representing Organic Growth of 17%, mainly due to GDI’s integrated facility services business unit (“GDI IFS”) which was launched at the beginning of 2022. The Corporate and Other segment is composed of GDI IFS, GDI’s janitorial products manufacturing and distribution business as well as GDI’s corporate costs and elimination of intercompany transactions.

“I am very pleased with GDI’s performance in the first quarter of 2023,” stated Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI. “As expected, we continued to see a reduction in COVID extras year-over-year in our Business Services segments which affected both organic growth and margins, however the base business within both our Canada and USA segments is performing well. Our Technical Services segment had a very strong quarter, nearly doubling Adjusted EBITDA and delivering 43% of organic growth. This growth resulted from Ainsworth executing on its significant projects backlog as well as solid growth on-call services. Even with this strong growth, Ainsworth booked more than it billed and ended the quarter with a backlog at record levels. Q1 remains Ainsworth’s weakest quarter seasonally from a margin perspective as its HVAC service business only begins to ramp up mid-Q2 each year. Within GDI’s new Corporate and Other segment, our IFS business continued to execute on its inaugural contracts while building out its pipeline of client opportunities, and our manufacturing and distribution business is gradually adapting to a lower office occupancy environment,” stated Mr. Bigras.

“The outlook for all of our business segments remains very positive. We have a strong market position in Canada and we are steadily growing our U.S. footprint. The three acquisitions that GDI concluded in 2022 have been successfully onboarded and are all performing well. Our balance sheet, which has been supporting our strong organic growth, has a leverage ratio of less than 3.0x and will provide us with sufficient room to support our M&A team which is actively working on new opportunities. I am very much looking forward to seeing how GDI will perform for the remainder of 2023.” concluded Mr. Bigras.

______________________________


* The terms “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA Margin” do not have standardized definitions prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards and therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization, transaction, reorganization and other costs, share-based compensation and strategic information technology projects configuration and customization costs. The Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenues. For more details and for a reconciliation of that measure to the most directly comparable IFRS measure, consult the “Operating and Financial Results” section of the Company’s Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A).

CAUTION CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements in this press release may constitute forward-looking information within the meaning of securities laws. Forward looking information may relate to GDI’s future outlook and anticipated events, business, operations, financial performance, financial condition or results and, in some cases, can be identified by terminology such as “may”; “will”; “should”; “expect”; “plan”; “anticipate”; “believe”; “intend”; “estimate”; “predict”; “potential”; “continue”; “foresee”; “ensure” or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. In particular, statements regarding GDI’s future operating results and economic performance, and its objectives and strategies are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain factors and assumptions including expected growth, results of operations, performance and business prospects and opportunities, which GDI believes are reasonable as of the current date. While management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to the Company, they may prove to be incorrect. It is impossible for GDI to predict with certainty the impact that the current economic uncertainties may have on future results. Forward-looking information is also subject to certain factors, including risks and uncertainties (described in the “Risk Factors” section) that could cause actual results to differ materially from what GDI currently expects. Namely, these factors include risks pertaining to unsuccessful implementation of the business strategy, inherent operating risks of acquisition activity, failure to integrate, decline in commercial real estate occupancy levels, increase in costs which cannot be passed on to customers, labour shortages, disruption in information technology systems and execution issues with Strategic IT projects, increases in interest rates, deterioration in general economic conditions, prolonged armed conflict in Ukraine, COVID-19 and related pandemic, increase in competition, influence of the principal shareholders, loss of key or long-term customers, public procurement laws and regulations, legal proceedings, reputational damage, labour disputes, environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations, goodwill and long-lived assets impairment charges, tax matters, dependence on key employees, participation in multi-employer pension plans, legislation or other governmental action, exchange rate fluctuations, disputes with franchisees, cybersecurity and data protection, data confidentiality, and public perception of our environmental footprint, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. Therefore, future events and results may vary significantly from what management currently foresees. The reader should not place undue importance on forward-looking information and should not rely upon this information as of any other date. While management may elect to, the Company is under no obligation and does not undertake to update or alter this information at any particular time, except as may be required by law.
