PONTE VEDRA, FL--(Marketwired - March 20, 2014) - ADS Waste Holdings, Inc. announced today revenue of $333.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 versus $196.9 million for the comparable period in 2012. Net loss for the three month period ended December 31, 2013 was $36.0 million versus $186.2 million for the comparable 2012 period. Excluding costs associated with the integration of the acquisition of Veolia ES Solid Waste ("Veolia") and restructuring charges of $10.5 million and $40.9 million, debt conversion costs and early extinguishment of debt and non-cash impairment charges, adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $16.9 million compared to a net loss of $12.9 million in 2012 and operating income for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 would have been $12.4 million and $2.9 million, respectively.
"We have increased our proforma revenue from continuing operations by 3.8% over the comparable quarter in 2012 and improved our adjusted proforma EBITDA margin from continuing operations over the comparable quarter by 120 basis points. We have substantially completed our integration and rebranding efforts across the areas in which we operate and continue to focus on our overall growth strategy. This year represented a substantial year of change in our Company and we focused on ensuring that we successfully integrated these three companies. Part of that focus was directed on deploying capital appropriately and we successfully implemented purchasing programs to drive reductions in our capital spending. Our capital spending as percent of revenue decreased by 190 basis points year over year," said Charlie Appleby, CEO.
Our adjusted free cash flow for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $71.3 million compared to $12.4 million for the comparable period in the prior year. See the "Reconciliation of Certain Non-GAAP Measures" Schedule contained herein.
Excluding certain charges associated with restructuring and integration and rebranding efforts, as well as items permitted to be excluded under the provisions of the term B loan credit agreement, adjusted proforma EBITDA from continuing operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $92.8 million compared to $88.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The calculation of free cash flow as well as the details of charges and other expenses that are excluded from EBITDA in arriving at adjusted EBITDA and adjusted proforma EBITDA is contained in the "Reconciliation of Certain Non-GAAP Measures" section of this press release.
(a) For purposes of this press release within the commentary, all reference to "Net loss" refer to the financial statement line item "Net loss attributable to ADS Waste Holdings, Inc."
(b) This press release contains a discussion of non-GAAP measures, as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company reports its financial results in compliance with GAAP, but believes that also discussing non-GAAP measures (such as adjusted net loss, adjusted net loss from continuing operations, proforma revenue, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted proforma EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow) provides investors with (i) additional, meaningful comparisons of current results to prior periods' results by excluding items that the Company does not believe reflect its fundamental business performance and are not representative or indicative of its results of operations and (ii) financial measures the Company uses in the management of its business. Accordingly, net (loss) and income from operations have been presented in certain instances excluding special items noted in this press release.

RECONCILIATION OF CERTAIN NON-GAAP MEASURES
We believe that presenting adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow, which are not measures determined in accordance with GAAP, provides an understanding of operational activities before the financial impact of certain items. We use these measurements, and believe investors will find them helpful, in understanding the ongoing performance of our operations separate from items that have a disproportionate impact on our results for a particular period. Our definition of adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
