This release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures described as "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted income from continuing operations," and "Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share".  These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of underlying operational results and trends as well as the Company's operational performance. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to certain GAAP financial measures. We round amounts in these schedules to millions and calculate all percentages and per-share data from the underlying whole-dollar amounts. As a result, certain amounts may not foot, crossfoot, or recalculate based on reported numbers due to rounding.

Second Quarter Performance

For the second quarter of fiscal 2016, revenues of approximately $1.3 billion increased 6.9% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. This was due primarily to strong organic growth within the Company's Janitorial segment driven by both increased Work Order (tag) sales and an increase in scope of work with existing accounts.  Revenues also benefited from higher growth within the ABES (Technical Services) business. Organic revenue increased 4.0% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. 

On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations was $6.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $16.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share last year.  Adjusted income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2016 was $17.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $19.0 million, or $0.33 per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2015.  The decrease versus last year is attributable to higher insurance-related expenses, and one additional working day during the quarter.  These expenses were partially offset by tag revenue within the Janitorial segment, higher revenue contribution from the ABES business, and the Company's 2020 Vision Savings initiatives.

Total net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $4.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net income of $18.3 million, or $0.32 per diluted share last year.  Impacting total net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $10.9 million related to certain corporate items impacting comparability primarily driven by restructuring and related charges and litigation and other settlements.  A full reconciliation of items impacting comparability can be found in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $46.0 million compared to $48.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 due to the aforementioned factors that impacted adjusted income from continuing operations. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 3.7% versus 4.1% last year.

Scott Salmirs, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABM Industries, commented, "I am pleased with our financial performance despite the expected impact of insurance and one extra working day during the quarter.  We successfully completed Phase I of our 2020 Vision transformation, and I am proud that we delivered on our goal of designing an organizational structure to support our 2020 Vision.  Additionally, we are pleased to have delivered 2020 Vision savings at the high end of our projection for the first half of 2016.  We are well on our way to achieving a run rate of $40 million to $50 million in operational efficiencies by the end of 2017."

Mr. Salmirs continued, "As we embark on the second phase of our 2020 Vision initiative, we are focused on developing the plans, tools and processes that will accelerate the impact of our new organizational structure and deliver EBITDA margin improvement."

Operating Results

For the second quarter of fiscal 2016, revenues increased by $80.7 million, or 6.9%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. This increase in revenues was attributable to organic growth stemming from tag sales and expansions of existing accounts within the Janitorial segment and Other (Air Serv) operations.   Revenues were also driven by higher technical services revenues due to a strong backlog from the first quarter. In addition, acquisitions provided $34.0 million of incremental revenues during the quarter primarily related to the Company's Westway acquisition in the United Kingdom, which is reflected in the Building & Energy Solutions segment.

Operating profit for the quarter was $11.8 million compared to $27.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Higher revenues and better contract mix within the Janitorial segment and higher contribution from the ABES business partially offset the decline in operating profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.  Operating profit was adversely impacted by higher insurance related expenses, one additional working day in the quarter, and certain corporate items impacting comparability (refer to Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures).

Liquidity & Capital Structure

The Company ended the quarter with total debt, including standby letters of credit, of $336.5 million. Total debt to proforma adjusted EBITDA was approximately 1.6x.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 0.3 million shares of common stock for $10.2 million. As of April 30, 2016, the Company had $167.1 million of remaining buyback availability under the $200.0 million share repurchase program. 

In addition, the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.165 per common share for a total distribution of $9.3 million.

Declaration of Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.165 per common share for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 payable on August 1, 2016 to shareholders of record on July 7, 2016. This will be the Company's 201st consecutive quarterly cash dividend.

Fiscal 2016 Guidance

The Company now expects GAAP income from continuing operations of $1.07 to $1.17 per diluted share for fiscal year 2016, or adjusted income from continuing operations of $1.55 to $1.65 per diluted share.  This increased guidance is due to the benefit of timing associated with the 2020 Vision Initiative and other strategic project investments that have not yet occurred. This guidance excludes any potential benefits associated with certain discrete tax items that would impact the Company's effective tax rate.

The list of factors above is illustrative and by no means exhaustive. Additional information regarding these and other risks and uncertainties we face is contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2015 and in other reports we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including all amendments to those reports).

We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement ABM's consolidated financial information, the Company has presented income from continuing operations as adjusted for items impacting comparability, for the second quarter of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of the underlying operational results and trends as well as ABM's marketplace performance. In addition, the Company has presented earnings before income from discontinued operations, net of income tax benefit, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding items impacting comparability (adjusted EBITDA) for the second quarter of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. Adjusted EBITDA is among the indicators management uses as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. (See accompanying financial tables for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to certain GAAP financial measures.)
