Advanced Disposal Announces Q2 2014 Results

PONTE VEDRA, FL--(Marketwired - August 12, 2014) - ADS Waste Holdings, Inc., (d/b/a Advanced Disposal) announced today revenue of $359.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 versus $333.6 million for the comparable period in 2013. Net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $15.2 million versus $18.7 million for the comparable 2013 period. Excluding costs associated with the integration of the acquisition of Veolia ES Solid Waste ("Veolia") and restructuring charges, adjusted operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 would have been $19.7 million and $18.6 million, respectively.

"We have increased our revenue from continuing operations by $26.3 million or 7.9% over the comparable quarter in 2013 driven by volume of 7.4% and price of 0.9%, offset by other adjustments of 0.4%. Adjusted EBITDA increased by $2.1 million from the comparable quarter driven primarily from strong special waste and rolloff volumes. Our management team is focused on growing the business while improving the efficiency of our operations," said Richard Burke, CEO.

Excluding certain charges associated with restructuring, integration and rebranding efforts, as well as items permitted to be excluded under the provisions of the Term B loan credit agreement, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $96.2 million compared to $94.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. 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 proforma EBITDA are contained in the "Reconciliation of Certain Non-GAAP Measures" section of this press release.

                                                                            
(a) 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 loss, adjusted loss from continuing operations, adjusted       
    operating income, EBITDA, adjusted proforma EBITDA from continuing      
    operations, 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 that the Company uses in the management of its       
    business. Accordingly, net (loss) and operating income 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 loss from continuing operations, adjusted operating income, adjusted proforma EBIDA 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 operational activities before the financial impact of certain item. 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 loss from continuing operations, adjusted operating income, adjusted proforma EBITDA from continuing operations and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The following table reconciles loss from continuing operations and operating income to adjusted loss from continuing operations and adjusted operating income (in millions):
