  • Second quarter revenues increased by 25.4% to $218.5 million
  • Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA1 increased by 21.2% to $10.5 million

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

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2016:

  • Revenues reached $218.5 million, an increase of $44.2 million or 25.4% over the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015, with the increase attributable to acquisitions, organic growth and foreign exchange appreciation.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 amounted to $10.5 million, an increase of $1.8 million or 21.2% over the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015, with growth in Adjusted EBITDA1 achieved in three of the Company's four business segments. Adjusted EBITDA margin1 amounted to 4.8% compared to 5.0% the year before, the modest decline principally resulting from the Technical Services segment representing a greater proportion of total revenues.
  • Net income amounted to $2.5 million or $0.12 earnings per share compared to a net loss of $1.3 million or $0.04 loss per share in the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2016

  • Revenues reached $427.3 million, an increase of $88.9 million or 26.3%, over the corresponding period of Fiscal 2015, with the increase attributable to acquisitions, organic growth and foreign exchange appreciation.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 amounted to $18.1 million, an increase of $0.3 million or 1.8% representing an Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 4.2% compared to 5.2% the year before, with the decline primarily due to the six-month period of Fiscal 2016 having additional costs of $1.8 million related to one extra working day compared to Fiscal 2015.
  • Net income amounted to $1.6 million or $0.08 earnings per share compared to a net loss of $10.7 million or $1.16 loss per share in Fiscal 2015.

"I am pleased with our second quarter results, with three of our four business segments delivering solid growth in Adjusted EBITDA1 over both the first quarter and the corresponding quarter of last year. The Canadian Janitorial segment is continuing to show improvement with Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 6.1% in the quarter compared to 5.3% the year before, and the Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 6.5% in the Complimentary Services segment is in-line with GDI's historic margin profile. The cost realignment and operational improvement initiatives we implemented within the Ainsworth business are bearing fruit, and combined with an increase in sales compared to the first quarter, the Technical Services segment delivered an Adjusted EBITDA margin1 of 3.3% in the second quarter. Results in the USA Janitorial segment were below expectations during the second quarter as the business experienced certain one-time costs and is adjusting to higher wage rates in certain markets, however we view these as temporary and expect this business segment to continue to be a strong performer for GDI in the future. Our outlook for 2016 remains positive, and I am particularly encouraged that the work we have undertaken to integrate and optimize the Ainsworth business is progressing well", stated Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI.
