GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc. releases its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016

  • First quarter revenues increased by 27.2% or $44.6 million
  • Extension of the Senior Secured Credit Agreement until May 2021

LASALLE, QC, May 12, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc. ("GDI" or the "Company") (TSX: GDI) announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2016.

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2016:

  • Revenue reached $208.8 million, an increase of $44.6 million or 27.2% over the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015. Revenue growth was generated through acquisitions, foreign exchange appreciation and organic growth.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 amounted to $7.5 million, a decrease of $1.5 million or 16.7% over the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015. Fiscal 2016 Adjusted EBITDA margin1 amounted to 3.6% compared to 5.5% the year before. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA1 and Adjustment EBITDA margin1 is due to the first quarter of Fiscal 2016 having additional costs of $1.8 million related to one extra working day compared to Fiscal 2015 and the Technical Services segment Adjusted EBITDA1 of $(0.6) million as GDI began to work on the realignment of the Ainsworth business acquired last November (together ''One Time Adjustments'').
  • When excluding the One Time Adjustments, the Adjusted EBITDA1 would have been $10.0 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2016, compared to $8.8 million in Fiscal 2015. As a result, consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin1 would have reached 5.6%2 in the first quarter of Fiscal 2016 compared to 5.5%2 in Fiscal 2015, which is the highest level since becoming publicly traded on the TSX.
  • Net loss amounted to $1.0 million or $0.05 loss per share compared to a net loss of $9.4 million or $5.47 loss per share in the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015.  
  • GDI continued to focus on cost efficiencies within its business and realigned certain activities, resulting in aggregate severance costs of approximately $1.9 million.
  • GDI extended its Senior Secured Credit Agreement for one additional year until May 2021.

2 Calculation excludes the Technical Services segment revenues from the consolidated revenues of the first quarter of Fiscal 2016 and 2015.

"Notwithstanding the extra working day in the first quarter, we had a positive start to 2016. We have begun to realize a gradual improvement in our Canadian Janitorial segment, our production and distribution business is performing well and we expect will continue to improve, and with recent client wins we expect our franchise business to grow meaningfully. We are making operational improvements within the Ainsworth business unit as planned, and at the same time are focusing on repositioning GDI in the market from being the largest and leading commercial janitorial services provider in Canada to being the largest and leading integrated facility services provider in Canada. We have a positive outlook for fiscal 2016, and continue to execute on our business plan", declared Claude Bigras, President and Chief Executive Officer of GDI.
