LASALLE, QC, Nov. 10, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ – GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc. (“GDI” or the “Company”) (TSX: GDI) is pleased to announce its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2020:

  • Revenue reached $365.4 million, an increase of $42.5 million, or 13.1%, over the third quarter of 2019. Organic decline in the third quarter of 2020 was limited to 1.1%, offset by revenue growth coming primarily from acquisition. The organic decline was driven by COVID-19 pandemic related impacts.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 amounted to $30.2 million, an increase of $10.0 million, or 49.3%, over the third quarter of 2019.
  • Net income was $13.2 million or $0.59 per share compared to net income of $4.1 million or $0.19 per share in Q3 2019.
  • Net cash flows generated by operating activities amounted to $30.6 million, compared to $2.3 million in Q3 2019, an increase of $28.3 million.
  • The long-term debt decreased by $52.1 million from $241.2 million on June 30, 2020 to $189.1 million on September 30, 2020. This decrease is mainly attributable to the conversion of convertible debentures for a total amount of $25.7 million, as well as higher debt repayments by the Company resulting from the increase in cash flow generated by operating activities.

GDI delivered a record quarter in Q3 2020, recording $365.4 million of revenue and a record Adjusted EBITDA1 of $30.2M, increases of 13.1% and 49.3% respectively, compared to the third quarter of 2019. In the nine-month period of 2020, GDI recorded revenue and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $1.047 billion and $72.8 million, increases of 11.3% and 28.2% respectively, over the corresponding period of 2019. GDI was also able to reduce its long-term debt by $52.1 million from $241.2 million on June 30, 2020 to $189.1 million on September 30, 2020 due to the combined effect of higher debt repayments made available by the net cash flows generated from operating activities in Q3 2020, and by the conversion of the convertible debentures into subordinated voting shares.

GDI’s Janitorial Canada segment had a strong quarter, recording $136.0 million in revenue and $18.4 million in Adjusted EBITDA1. While a number of Janitorial Canada’s clients were operating facilities at lower than normal capacity levels, many clients required additional services and specialty services due to the COVID-19 pandemic such as higher frequency cleaning and disinfection services. GDI’s Janitorial USA segment also performed well in Q3 2020, recording revenue of $83.7 million, a modest COVID-19 related revenue organic decline of 2.2%, and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $7.2 million, an increase of 18.7% over Q3 2019. A number of clients of the Janitorial USA segment required additional services due to COVID-19, however it was to a lesser degree than was experienced in the Janitorial Canada segment as a result of a different end-market mix. The Technical services segment, GDI’s business that has been most impacted by COVID-19, experienced a progressive rebound in activity levels during Q3 2020, reporting Adjusted EBITDA1 of $5.2 million in the quarter compared to breakeven Adjusted EBITDA1 in Q2 2020. Finally, GDI’s Complementary services segment had another very strong quarter, reporting $21.6 million in revenue and $2.4 million in Adjusted EBITDA1 in Q3 2020, representing increases of 22.4% and 125% respectively over the corresponding period of 2019. This segment continued to experience higher levels of demand for personal protective equipment and cleaning and disinfecting equipment and supplies from both GDI and its clients and third-party clients during the quarter.

“I am extremely pleased with GDI’s performance during Q3 2020,” stated Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI. “All of our business units really stepped up their game during the quarter by working closely with our clients to design building re-opening and re-occupying plans to ensure that facilities provided safe environments for their occupants as the various regional economies across North America reopened.  As one of the largest and the leading commercial janitorial services providers in North America, our Janitorial business segments took a leadership position in the industry in advising clients on the various processes and procedures to implement and the products to use to help keep facilities clean and mitigate the risk of virus spread. We expect that as long as the COVID-19 virus remains a risk to our society our clients will require our enhanced support and our Janitorial business segments will continue to perform well. Ainsworth, our Technical Services business, is recovering well from the pandemic lows experienced in Q2 this year. Service call activity has been progressively rebounding and was approaching normal levels by the end of the quarter, and while some projects have been moved to future quarters activity level has picked up here as well. Our manufacturing and distribution business continues to perform extremely well. During a period of high demand for Personal Protective Equipment and cleaning and disinfecting products we have been able to secure sufficient supply to satisfy the needs not only of GDI but of new third-party clients as well.”

“While we are currently experiencing a resurgence of the pandemic in most markets across Canada and the USA, we feel that regional governments, businesses, and real estate owners are better prepared to manage through this phase. Our management team has been incredibly proactive since the beginning of the crisis to ensure that our business is positioned to mitigate any negative impacts while preserving our financial health. At present, due to the exceptional performance GDI delivered during the pandemic, our balance sheet is strong, our leverage ratios are at multi-year lows and we are in a solid financial position. We feel confident in our ability to navigate through the remainder of the pandemic. We continue to focus on our growth through acquisition strategy and our financial strength will enable us to capitalize on strategic opportunities as they arise. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of GDI’s team members, from our front line cleaners and multi-trade technicians to our support, administrative and managerial staff, you have stepped up to fight this virus head on, and I am incredibly proud of the work you have done,” 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).
