Executive Summary:

  • Revenues were a record $1.28 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, up 4.9% compared to $1.22 billion last year, due to organic growth of 3.8% and contributions from acquisitions.
  • Janitorial achieved organic growth of 3.5%; Building & Energy Solutions and Other (Air Serv) segments delivered organic growth of 14.2% and 11.1%, respectively.
  • Adjusted net income after-tax was $0.47 per diluted share, up 14.6% compared to $0.41 per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, primarily from organic revenue growth, expansion of margins as a result of savings from the Onsite operations realignment and lower insurance expense from enhancements to the Company's risk management and safety programs.
  • Net income was $19.4 million, up $3.4 million or 21.3% from new business, improved operating margins, and savings from the Onsite realignment. Included in the Company's results is an after-tax charge of $6.1 million ($10.5 million pre-tax) to increase expected insurance reserves for policy years before 2014. This compares to an after-tax charge of $6.0 million ($9.9 million pre-tax) recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 9.1% to $62.4 million from margin improvement and contributions from recent acquisitions.
  • Net cash from operations was $19.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, down 58.5% compared to net cash from operations of $46.5 million for the same period last year, due to timing of collections and higher cash taxes paid.

Third Quarter Results and Management Commentary

“The company's operating performance in the third quarter was outstanding with record revenues of $1.28 billion, year-over-year growth of 4.9%. Compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2013, our Janitorial, Parking, Building & Energy Solutions, and Air Serv businesses achieved double-digit improvements in operating profit," said ABM's president and chief executive officer Henrik Slipsager. "Results were driven by continued strong organic growth and we are very encouraged by our 30 basis point improvement in gross margin as all of our operating segments profited from lower insurance expense as a result of enhancements to our risk management and safety programs. Our Janitorial segment posted a 3.5% increase in revenue primarily due to new contract wins and strength in the West and Midwest regions, where organic growth exceeded 4%. Operating profit for Janitorial increased 17.4% mainly due to lower labor and labor related expenses as a result of our safety initiatives, realignment savings, and new business. The Building & Energy Solutions segment revenue increased 21.5% in the third quarter, as we experienced strong organic growth in our healthcare, energy and government businesses and benefited from recent acquisitions. Operating profit in Building & Energy Solutions increased 15.3% due to new business and acquisitions. In our Other segment, Air Serv achieved a 17.9% increase in revenue from new business and the August 2013 acquisition of Blackjack. Air Serv's operations in the United Kingdom had an exceptional quarter and significantly contributed to the 18.4% increase in operating profit. Start-up costs were $1.5 million pre-tax, essentially flat on a sequential basis.”

Slipsager continued, “Adjusted operating profit before-tax increased 15.6% or $6.3 million to $46.7 million, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was largely due to strong top-line growth and margin improvement as a result of lower insurance expense, primarily in our Janitorial segment, realignment savings achieved in our Onsite businesses and higher margin business in our Building & Energy Solutions segment, partially offset by higher operating expenses on new business and increased compensation expense to support our growth initiatives. In addition, the third quarter of 2014 is without the anticipated benefit of $0.02 per diluted share from the Work Opportunity Tax Credit ("WOTC") under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. On a reported basis, net income after-tax increased $3.4 million or 21.3% to $19.4 million ($0.34 per diluted share)."

James Lusk, executive vice president and chief financial officer, added, “The Company generated $19.3 million in cash flow in the third quarter, which was down 59% from the prior year largely due to timing of client collections and higher taxes paid. In the fourth quarter, we anticipate strong collections of client receivables, similar to prior fiscal years. We continue to use our free cash flow to enhance shareholder value. During the quarter, the Company executed share repurchases totaling $10.0 million and paid a quarterly cash dividend of $8.6 million. We ended the third quarter with $311.7 million of borrowings under our credit facility, down $15.5 million from $327.2 million in the prior quarter.”

Interest expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.7 million, a decrease from $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2013 due to lower average borrowings and a lower average rate under the Company’s credit facility compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was 40.5%, flat with the same period last year. The anticipated effective tax rate for fiscal year 2014 continues to be in a range of 36% to 38% and assumes the retroactive reenactment of WOTC by Congress prior to the end of the Company’s fiscal year on October 31, 2014. If the WOTC is not retroactively reenacted by Congress prior to October 31, 2014, the estimated annual effective income tax rate will be between 40% and 42%.

Slipsager concluded, “Our pipeline of new business remains robust and our strategic focus on key verticals, such as high-tech, sports and entertainment, aviation, financial services and healthcare, should continue to drive sales growth. We have also been extremely pleased with our Air Serv business and during the quarter they started a significant amount of new business. With the success of their operations in the United Kingdom, and the new business, Air Serv is well positioned moving into the fourth quarter. In addition, we recently completed the acquisition of Airco Commercial Services Inc. to add to our offering of best-in-class HVAC and energy efficiency services. With the realignment of our infrastructure largely completed, we believe we have ample opportunity to leverage our fully collaborative and integrated sales-driven strategy across the company as our Onsite businesses continue to identify new opportunities to cross sell our services and we further develop our end-to-end service delivery model. I am looking forward to a strong finish to fiscal 2014.”

Nine Months Results

The Company reported revenues for the nine months ended July 31, 2014 of $3.73 billion, a 4.5% increase compared to year- ago revenues of $3.57 billion, primarily due to additional revenues from new business.

Income from continuing operations for the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 was $47.7 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, compared to $48.7 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, for the first nine months of fiscal year 2013.

Adjusted after-tax net income from continuing operations for the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 was $59.8 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, compared to $58.0 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the first nine months of fiscal year 2013. The increase of $1.8 million is primarily the result of a $7.4 million after-tax contribution from operations, partially offset by higher taxes of $5.5 million. Adjusted income from continuing operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 included a higher benefit of $0.09 per diluted share primarily from WOTC compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2014. Fiscal 2013 included a $0.05 per diluted share benefit related to retroactive reinstatement of WOTC from fiscal 2012.

Dividend

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a fourth quarter cash dividend of $0.155 per common share payable on November 3, 2014 to stockholders of record on October 2, 2014. This will be ABM’s 194th consecutive quarterly cash dividend.

Guidance

The Company is lifting fiscal 2014 guidance for adjusted after-tax net income to $1.65 to $1.69 per diluted share. Guidance for after-tax net income is $1.42 to $1.46 per diluted share. This guidance continues to include an expected benefit of $0.08 per diluted share for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, which the Company anticipates Congress will retroactively reenact by the end of the Company's fiscal year-end of October 31, 2014.
