Waste Connections Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter and Cash Flow Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2014

Waste Connections Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $481,710,000 against $449,892,000 a year ago. Operating income was $100,589,000 against $86,913,000 a year ago. Income before income tax provision was $83,155,000 against $68,643,000 a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $49,015,000 or $0.39 diluted per share against $41,556,000 or $0.34 diluted per share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $144,957,000 against $132,958,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures for property and equipment were $35,592,000 against $36,905,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $164,138,000 against $146,064,000 a year ago. Adjusted free cash flow was $115,501,000 against $100,162,000 a year ago. Adjusted net income attributable to the company was $54,460,000 or $0.44 per share against $45,718,000 or $0.37 per share a year ago. Debt outstanding at quarter end was about $2 billion. The company exceeded the upper end of its revenue outlook for the period by almost $8 million due to higher-than-expected landfill volumes and E&P waste activity. The company provided earnings guidance for the second quarter and cash flow guidance for the full year of fiscal 2014. The company believes capital expenditure in 2014 will be closer to $200 million, rather than $180 million to $190 million provided in its original outlook due to construction of the two landfills acquired in first quarter, with targeted full year free cash flow reduced by an amount similar to the incremental increase in acquisition-related capital expenditure. Revenue in the second quarter is estimated to be between $515 million and $520 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter is estimated between $180 million and $181 million, or almost 35% of revenue. Depreciation and amortization expense in the second quarter is estimated to be about 12.4% of revenue, a slight improvement from the prior year period as a percentage of revenue. Amortization of intangibles in the quarter is estimated at about $6.7 million or $0.03 per diluted share. Operating income for the second quarter is estimated to be about 22.5% of revenue. Interest expense in the quarter is estimated to be about $16.2 million and as noted earlier, the company’s effective tax rate in the quarter is estimated to be about 39.3%. Non-controlling interest is expected to reduce net income by about $350,000 in the second quarter.
