"Although we had a challenging quarter, we continue to make progress on the execution of our long-term value creation strategy and remain confident in our ability to deliver sustainable profitable growth"

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SERV), a leading provider of essential services to residential and commercial customers in the termite, pest control, cleaning and restoration markets, today announced unaudited third-quarter 2019 results.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2019, the Company reported a year-over-year revenue increase of seven percent to $528 million with net income of $25 million, or $0.19 per share. Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter was $97 million, versus $95 million for the same period in 2018. Adjusted net income(2) was $42 million, or $0.31 per share, versus $32 million, or $0.24 per share, for the same period in 2018. Both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income, in the third quarter of 2018, include $11 million of costs historically allocated to American Home Shield.

“Although we had a challenging quarter, we continue to make progress on the execution of our long-term value creation strategy and remain confident in our ability to deliver sustainable profitable growth,” said ServiceMaster CEO Nik Varty. “We are improving our service levels across all of our businesses, which has resulted in continued stronger retention rates, net promoter scores, customer satisfaction and ultimately organic growth. Terminix Commercial showed strong retention gains in the quarter and added significant additional capabilities and talent with the recent acquisitions of Gregory Pest Solutions and McCloud Services. ServiceMaster Brands had a strong quarter and continues to create value for our franchise network through development of centers of excellence in healthcare cleaning and disinfections as well as commercial national accounts. While I am pleased with the progress we are making in all of these areas, our third quarter EBITDA performance is a reminder of how much more work we have to do.”

The Company’s ongoing focus in Terminix Residential is continuing the customer-first culture change that is underway with its front-line associates, paying them for their performance, increasing focus on recurring high-margin product lines and enhancing productivity through a disciplined operational cadence. Terminix Residential is improving consistency in its efforts towards operational excellence and ensuring that it delivers an unparalleled customer experience at every customer interaction.

The Company has taken strong actions in addressing two legacy risks, termite damage claims and fumigation services. Meaningful progress has been made to address the previously announced increase in termite damage claims, emerging from a specific species of termite. Those actions were initiated in early 2018 and include better technician training, better documentation, an improved pricing structure, a systematic retreatment process in the high-risk region and working more closely with our customers to proactively resolve problems.

Similar to most industry peers, the Company announced earlier this year that it would outsource its fumigation business to reduce its risk, while ensuring it could continue to provide this service for customers who need it. The initial execution of this transition was challenging, and the results did not meet expectations. The Company is implementing a plan to improve performance issues through better subcontractor management and renegotiating better pricing with its service providers to ensure that the business has attractive economics.

Reconciliations of net income to Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of net cash provided from operating activities from continuing operations to free cash flow, are set forth below in this press release.

Terminix

Terminix reported seven percent year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter of 2019, including two percent organic growth. Organic revenue growth of two percent in residential pest control was driven by pricing. Organic revenue growth of one percent in commercial pest control was driven by strong year-over-year gains in retention offsetting slower one-time and new unit sales. Organic revenue growth of two percent in termite and home services was driven by pricing realization in termite completions and new units in home services, more than offsetting a reduction in high-margin termite renewals driven partially by price increases in the market of Mobile, Ala., where activity of the Formosan termite, an aggressive invasive species, is concentrated. Acquisition revenue growth of five percent, primarily in the commercial pest service line, was principally driven by the January 2019 Assured Environments acquisition.

Terminix Adjusted EBITDA was $72 million for the third quarter, or a year-over-year decrease of 11 percent. Terminix invested $6 million in growth and had additional costs of $4 million in spin-related dis-synergies, $4 million from outsourcing fumigation services, and $2 million in termite damage claims. These costs were partially offset by $2 million from organic revenue conversion, as well as $4 million in Adjusted EBITDA contribution from acquisitions. The $2 million organic revenue conversion was impacted by lower termite renewal revenue and growth in product sales.

The $6 million increase in investments in growth contains $2 million from increased sales and marketing, $2 million from investments related to the Salesforce operating system implementation, as well as $2 million from investments to optimize our commercial pest business and to transform our operating model. The Company was also impacted by $4 million in spin-related dis-synergies. We also had a reduction of $4 million due to subpar execution during the outsourcing of fumigation completions.

ServiceMaster Brands

ServiceMaster Brands reported a $3 million, or five percent, year-over-year revenue increase in the third quarter of 2019. Growth in the quarter included seven percent growth in commercial cleaning national accounts as well as three percent growth in high-margin royalty revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter was up $2 million, or seven percent, year-over-year, primarily due to conversion of high-margin royalty revenue growth.

Corporate and Other Operations

Corporate and Other Operations includes our pest control operations in Europe, our financing subsidiary and our headquarters functions. Corporate and Other Operations contributed $3 million in Adjusted EBITDA in the three months ended September 30, 2019. Approximately $1 million was related to European pest control operations with the remaining primarily driven by continued favorability in claims results related to the Company’s workers’ compensation, auto and general liability program.

Other Matters

Termite Damage Claims

Our termite damage warranty is a differentiator that has enabled us to become the market leader of this product line. The Formosan termite activity driving higher claims expense remains largely concentrated in the Mobile, Alabama region, which represents less than two percent of termite revenue. We are taking decisive actions to mitigate increasing claims costs in this high-risk region. Actions include improving technician training, documentation and pricing, while implementing a systematic retreatment process in the high-risk region. These actions are expected to enable us to manage termite damage claims within our long-term margin profile.

Fumigation Services

In order to resolve potential legacy risks related to fumigation operations, the Company outsourced completion services to a third-party provider. This common industry arrangement allowed the Company to maintain its position with the customer as a full-service pest control provider.

In our attempt to rapidly address these risks, we experienced execution missteps which led to increased outsourcing costs limiting our ability to grow completions which impacted our bottom line. The Company implemented a corrective plan to improve performance through better subcontractor management and negotiation of better pricing with its service providers to ensure that the business has attractive economics.

Recent Acquisitions

On September 6, 2019, the Company closed on Nomor Holding AB based in Stockholm, Sweden. Nomor represents the Company’s entrance into the fast growing and second largest pest control market in the world. Nomor will continue to operate under the Nomor and Pelias brand names in Sweden and Norway, respectively, and will focus on organic growth opportunities in the Scandinavian region as well as acquisition opportunities throughout the remaining European markets. The operations of Nomor will be reported in Corporate and Other Operations and Nomor management will report directly to Dion Persson, SVP, Strategy and International Operations.

On October 7, 2019, the Company closed on McCloud Services based in Elgin, Illinois. This fourth-generation pest control company founded in 1904, and one of the largest Copesan partners, is an industry leader in the growing food service vertical of commercial pest control and provides additional capabilities to its commercial pest management business.

On October 10, 2019, the Company closed on another Copesan partner, Gregory Pest Solutions, based in Greenville, South Carolina. Founded in 1972 by Phil and Sara Gregory, and growing to span 11 states across the Southeast, the Company adds additional capabilities in multi-family housing. Both of these acquisitions will report to Greg Rutherford, President of Terminix Commercial.

Refinancing

On November 5, 2019, the Company will close on an amended $600 million Term Loan B due 2026, as well as a $400 million revolving credit agreement due 2024. The proceeds of the transaction will be used to repay approximately $171 million of debt outstanding under its previous Term Loan B due 2023, $120 million outstanding under its previous revolving credit agreement due 2021, as well as $150 million from a recent short-term borrowing entered on October 4, 2019. Net of transaction costs, the Company expects to add approximately $146 million in cash to its balance sheet for general corporate uses.

The amended term loan facility maturing 2026 priced at 99.875% of the principal amount and bears interest at a fluctuating rate of LIBOR plus 1.75% per annum with a 0% LIBOR floor. Concurrently with the refinancing, the Company intends to enter into a $550 million seven-year interest rate swap locking in a fixed rate.

Giving effect to these transactions, the Company will have a net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio of approximately 3.5x.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow was $191 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $170 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The $22 million improvement was driven primarily by lower property additions compared to prior year and a decrease in cash interest as a result of debt reductions in 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, free cash flow to Adjusted EBITDA conversion remained strong at 57 percent.

Full-Year 2019 Outlook

The Company has increased full-year 2019 revenue guidance to range from $2,070 million to $2,085 million, or an increase of approximately 10 percent compared to 2018. Organic revenue growth at Terminix is expected to range from 2.5 to 3 percent. The increase to revenue guidance is driven primarily by the recently announced acquisitions. Acquisition revenue for the full year 2019 is expected to be approximately $130 million. ServiceMaster Brands will continue to focus on driving growth in commercial cleaning national accounts and is expected to increase revenue in the mid-single digits.

Full-year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA guidance is now expected between $415 million and $425 million. The movement in Adjusted EBITDA guidance includes an approximately $5 million increase from acquisitions, $10 million reduction from the impact of termite damage claims which can be difficult to forecast due to timing unpredictability, $5 million reduction from additional investments in growth and $10 million from lower revenue in termite renewals, principally in the Mobile, Alabama region, and the impact of outsourcing our fumigation services.

Going forward, we are confident we can improve our fumigation operations. Although the timing of termite damage claims expense is difficult to forecast in the short-term, we believe our strong actions will allow us to manage termite damage claims within our long-term margin profile.

A reconciliation of the forward-looking 2019 Adjusted EBITDA outlook to net income is not being provided, as the Company does not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation.
