GDI delivered another very good quarter in Q2 2020 despite the impact of COVID-19, recording $326.7 million of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $22.5M, increases of 4.4% and 21.3% respectively compared to the second quarter of 2019. In the first half of 2020 GDI recorded revenue and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $681.6 million and $42.6 million, increases of 10.2% and 16.6% respectively, over the corresponding period of 2019.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the second quarter of 2020 was extremely challenging for commercial real estate. GDI’s business segments were affected differently based on both region and market sector. The Janitorial Canada segment experienced a revenue impact as certain client facilities were temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while profitability was positively impacted as many facilities that remained open required additional  services and specialty services, such as higher frequency cleaning, disinfection and decontamination services. The COVID-19 pandemic affected the Janitorial USA segment differently due to a different end market mix, however the business was able to maintain revenue and profitability that was comparable to last year despite the market disruption created by the pandemic. GDI’s Technical Services segment was the most impacted by COVID-19 as the construction industries in Quebec and Ontario were temporarily shut down and certain projects were moved into future quarters. Ainsworth’s backlog currently stands close to its highest point in history, the business has been experiencing a strong rebound in service work, and GDI expects that business will return to normal activity levels as the different regional economies progressively reopen. The Complementary Services segment, comprising of GDI’s manufacturing and distribution business, had an exceptional quarter. Large market demand created shortages of supply for products such as gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectants, and the businesses management team was able to secure significant levels of supply of most of these products to satisfy the needs of GDI and its clients, while also generating strong sales volumes to a number of new clients.   

“Going forward, we believe that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us. Although the number of reported cases is increasing in certain regions, we feel that regional governments, businesses, and real estate owners are better prepared to manage through the next stages of the pandemic,” stated Mr. Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI. “As buildings continue to reopen and occupancy rates rise, we expect that the base level of services required by our clients will be higher than it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we expect the level of specialty work experienced during the peak of the pandemic will decline. While there remains a high degree of uncertainty over the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the real estate industry for the remainder of 2020, we worked very hard during the pandemic to differentiate GDI as a leader in the marketplace and feel that we are well positioned as a key advisor to our clients as the essential services rules are being lifted and occupancy rates continue to rise,” stated Mr. Bigras.

“Early in the second quarter, we took proactive measures to reduce costs and mitigate the impact of business volume declines to preserve profitability and ensure our financial health. I am very happy with the results we generated in the quarter. GDI’s balance sheet remains healthy, our leverage ratios are well within our comfort zone and we are in a strong financial position.  I would like to thank our dedicated employees who have been working on the front lines of this pandemic. All of you have risen to the occasion to help keep our clients safe and our business operating effectively in these challenging times. I am very proud of your efforts. I am extremely proud to see how our entire team has been stepping up to the challenge,” concluded Mr. Bigras.

1 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, Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy, transaction, reorganization and other costs and share-based compensation. 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).
