For the first quarter of 2019:

  • Revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was $305.3 million, an increase of $53.7 million, or 21.4%, over the first quarter of 2018. Organic growth in the first quarter of 2019 was 7.8%, with the remaining revenue growth coming primarily from acquisitions.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first quarter of 2019 amounted to $17.9 million, an increase of $6.3 million, or 53.8%, over the first quarter of 2018. This increase includes a favourable impact of $1.9 million coming from the adoption of IFRS 16. Excluding this impact, Adjusted EBITDA1 would have been $16M, or 37% higher than the first quarter of 2018. All business segments reported increases in Adjusted EBITDA1 over the previous year, including substantial growth in both the Janitorial USA and Technical Services business segments.
  • Net income for the first quarter of 2019 amounted to $1.5 million compared to net income of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2018, representing $0.07 per share in each period. Net income was negatively impacted by $2.1 million, net of tax, or $0.10 per share by the remeasurement of cash settled share-based compensation due to the increase of GDI's stock price in the first quarter of 2019.
  • As previously disclosed, during the first quarter of 2019, GDI completed 1 acquisition in the United States, in the Janitorial USA segment. This acquisition positively contributed to the GDI performance for the first quarter of 2019. Following the end of the quarter, GDI completed 2 small acquisitions in the Technical services segment.

"We had another very good quarter in Q1, recording $305 million of revenue, an increase of 21.4%, and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $17.9M, up by 53.8% compared to the first quarter of 2018, which included a favourable impact from IFRS 16 of $1.9M. All our segments performed well and recorded increases in Adjusted EBITDA – Pre IFRS 161 compared to the first quarter of 2018. Our organic growth was also very solid at 7.8%. Our Janitorial Canada business performed well in the first quarter and recorded an Adjusted EBITDA margin – Pre IFRS 161 of 7%, resulting from a strong emphasis placed on cost optimization and operating efficiency. Our Janitorial USA business had another record quarter and is performing extremely well, posting Adjusted EBITDA – Pre IFRS 161 of $5.8 million, representing growth of 92.5% over last year and a margin of 7.3%. The Technical services segment also had a strong quarter, with a 37.6% increase in revenue and solid increases in both Adjusted EBITDA – Pre-IFRS 161 and margin1 compared to the first quarter of 2018. We are pleased with the performance in the Technical services segment as Q1 is typically affected by seasonality given the nature of the business, there are less break-fix calls and fewer larger projects are started in the winter, which results in lower margins in the first quarter in this segment. Finally, our complementary services had a good first quarter which was in-line with expectations," stated Claude Bigras, President & CEO of GDI.

"On April 1 we completed two small acquisitions in the Technical services segment that will help to strengthen our position in Southwest Ontario and Atlantic Canada. We continue to build and reinforce our platform across Canada in this high growth segment. GDI's outlook for the remainder of 2019 remains positive, we are working on growing our business both organically and through acquisition and on managing our costs. Our leverage ratios remain well within our comfort zone and we are well positioned to continue to execute on our business plan and capitalize on strategic growth opportunities as they arise," concluded Mr. Bigras.

______________________________________

1 The terms "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA margin", "Adjusted EBITDA – Pre IFRS 16" and "Pre-IFRS 16 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, goodwill impairment, transaction, reorganization and other costs and share-based compensation. The Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenues. Adjusted EBITDA – Pre-IFRS 16 is defined as Adjusted EBITDA without application of IFRS 16 to make it comparable to prior year figures. The Adjusted EBITDA Margin – Pre IFRS 16 is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA – Pre IFRS 16 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 MD&A.
